    June 1984. Timmy Graco is looking forward to summer vacation, taking it easy and hanging out with his buddies. Instead his summer will be filled with terror and a life-and-death battle against a nightmarish creature that few will believe even exists. Timmy learns that the person who’s been unearthing fresh graves in the cemetery isn’t a person at all. It’s a thing. And it’s after Timmy and his friends. If Timmy hopes to live to see September, he’ll have to escape the Ghoul.

    Story

    This was the best horror book I have read (heard) in a long time. I couldn't stop listening so I used up my credit way too fast. The author really made you care about what was happening to the characters. The story was not original but it was told in a compelling way, The narrator was just right for the story. If you like horror books, give this one a try.

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    Would you listen to The City again? Why?

    I hesitated to buy this book because Koontz has shall we say, "lost his touch" in some of his latest books. But hey, it's Koontz and I have to try because maybe I'll find the magic of Watcher's, or Strangers, and not the boredom of Darkest Night of the Year. In the city, I found it. This wasn't really a horror story as much as it is a story of surviving adversity. The supernatural is subtle but still drives the story. I really loved all of the characters and found myself whispering, "Don't let anything happen to this one." frequently throughout; I just had to know what happened next. The narrator portrayed each person clearly so that you always new who was speaking. The ending was perfect for the story. I loved this book.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Steelheart the most enjoyable?

    This was a good story with a new premise and likable characters. There were some good twists in the story that I never saw coming. Mcleod Andrew (who sounds a like like Michael J. Fox) put in a stellar performance. He brought David, the main character, to life. If there is a sequel to Steelheart it would be difficult to accept another reader. The story kept me involved from beginning to end.

    In a famous family of exceptionally talented people, fifteen-year-old Claire Walker is ordinary...or so she leads everyone to believe. Yet the minute she steps out of line, her parents transfer her to Cambial Academy: the prestigious boarding school that her great-grandfather founded for students with supernatural abilities, or "specials."

    Story

    The story was engrossing and the characters likable. There were interesting twists in the story so that you weren't quite sure who the bad guys were. A great story for taking your mind away from real life, letting you just sit back and enjoy. I do wish the narrator would stop with her annoying habit of using an adnoid voice for one of her characters. She reads her characters well enough that she doesn't need to do that. It was the only thing I didn't like about the book.
