    Facing down an unprecedented malevolent enemy, the government responds with a nuclear attack. America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen - from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City - will fight for survival. In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity.

    Story

    I love apocalyptic books, and Swan's Song was a wonderful tale on the "end of the world". This book makes it easy to get to know the characters and even love some of them, while hating others. Swan Song is a beautiful tale of the end of humanity, and a possible renewal of who is left after the bombs killed most of the population and others died of radiation poisoning. A special little girl and a beautiful mysterious item which the bomb created are the stars of this book along with the keeper of the mysterious piece (sister). They will take you on a magnificent ride and you may even find yourself crying a time or two in this wonderful tale of destruction and the miracle of regeneration. I recommend this book to all those who are fans of apocalyptic books. It is well worth the credit!! Put your headphones on, sit back and enjoy this wonderful listen!

    A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

    Story

    I love zombie books, but this has got to be one of the best, if not the best zombie book that I have read thus far. It is not the same old "must have brains" zombie book where they walk around senseless and has not real story line. This book had a great story line, great characters, and I did not want it to end. It is a rare find to come across a zombie book that brings humanity into it and not just zombies zombies zombies. I love this and recommend this listen for anyone who appreciates a good zombie tale. A zombie tale that explains how the zombies population got started (which was very unique and a new one for me). The characters are easy to relate to and the narrator, William Dufris did an excellent job of bringing this book to life. It's not often you find a zombie tale that brings you the gore that all zombie fans love, the horror that we all crave, and even a tear or 2 to your eyes in a couple of places. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be listening to it again at least once. Two thumbs and two toes up for this book. lol Enjoy!!!

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    I anxiously awaited the release of this book since I found out about it about 3 months ago and it was well worth the wait. It did not disappoint one bit. I was grabbed into the story within the first 5 minutes and was held tight to it until it ended and left me wanting more. I had a hard time putting it down. It was fantastic. I am an avid Stephen King fan and I put this book up with my all time favorites like the Stand and Dreamcatcher. It as a great book and well worth every minute spent listening. I didn't want it to end (like most Stephen King books), but I guess all good things must come to an end eventually. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes an incredible, original, well written, masterpiece of a book. I will be listening to this book again at least once for sure. I think that Craig Wasson did a great job narrating as well. I think the narrator can make or break a book, and he surely was the cherry on the top of this treat. Kudos to the King. Do yourself a favor and READ (listen) to this wonderful book and get swept away into a great story!!!

    A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time, they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things: the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat. Meet the zombies....

    Story

    The story was just okay and the narration was not even that. The narrator sounded like a valley girl. I couldn't figure out if this was supposed to be a scary book or a corny funny one. I kept expecting to hear "gag me with a spoon" or something like that the way this was performed. The was alot of profanity used in places that did not make any sense at all. I don't mind some profanity, but when the 4 letter word is used as one of the staple words of the book, it makes it trashy in my opinion. If you are interested in this book, it's best if you can get it on a $4.95 sale or another good sale, but I certainly wouldn't waste a credit on it, unless you are into the "valley girl zombie fighter with a small range of vocabulary" type of books.

    When I read the information about this book and saw that Tananarive Due was being called "an equal to Stephen King", I had to give it a whirl being an avid Stephen King fan. I have to say that I was not disappointed in the least. In fact, I was very pleased. The story was excellent, and Robin Miles did and excellent job of narrating the story that made it even better. This is the first book I have read by this author and I have to agree with what I read about her. This book was an equal to a GOOD Stephen King novel. I could not stop listening. This was definately worth the credit and 21 hours of listening time. I look forward to other titles from this author and other narrations from Robin Miles. She is the best female narrator I have heard to date so far.

    FOR RENT: Top two floors of beautifully renovated brownstone, 1300 sq. ft., 2BR 2BA, eat-in kitchen, one block to parks and playgrounds. No broker's fee. Susan and Alex Wendt have found their dream apartment. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up. Big mistake.

    Story

    Bedbugs was a fair story, but the narrator pretty much ruined it for me. I had a hard time getting into the story because the voice of the narrator irritated me so bad, especially when she tried to do the child's voice. I really had to force myself to finish the book because of the reader, but the story was pretty decent so that kept me interested enough to make it through the 6 hours and some minutes. This is a good example of why you should ALWAYS try a sample before purchasing. Thankfully, I only paid $4.95 for the book on sale and didn't waste my credit on this or I would not be happy. Good story though!!!!!! Buy it as a book,,not a listen.

    I am an avid Stephen King fan and have read just about all of his books and seen the movies made from his stories. I saw It on TV and decided to finally read it because the books are always so much better than the movies, and as usual, that rule applies to this story too. The book was 10 times better than the movie and I'm so glad I purchased and listened to it. I'll never tire of King and his imagination. Good King story and good narrator. Highly recommend!!!

    He would go to Hell.... At the Iron Mountain Home for Boys, there was nothing but time. Time to burn and time to kill, time for two young orphans to learn that life isn’t won without a fight. Julian survives only because his older brother, Michael, is fearless and fiercely protective. When tensions boil over and a boy is brutally killed, there is only one sacrifice left for Michael to make: He flees the orphanage and takes the blame with him.

    This was my first Hart book and I can now say that I have another author to ad to my favorite list. This story was fast paced, and kept you on the edge of your seat the entire ride. It is one of those stories that gets read in 1 sitting because you can't put it down or turn it off. I say this book would be a great purchase for anyone who likes a great story with alot of twists. I wish they would make a movie of this book, I loved it!!!!

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    This was my first Koontz novel and I was not disappointed one bit. I am an avid Stephen King reader and was looking for a writer that writes similar stories, and I found my man. The first 1/3 was a little slow, but still interesting, and when you get to the 2nd section, watch out because you won't be able to put it down or turn it off. I love stories like this and am looking forward to my next Koontz novel. I have already purchased 2 more of his and can't wait to start. I highly recommend this book to those who are into stories that are intense, scary, great, and keep you on the edge of your seat.
