    In the weeks after Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast on August 29th, Audible reached out to customers in the affected area to offer help. Many customers responded and several agreed to be interviewed about their experience. Stories from the Storm was recorded in mid-November, in the days when many people were still clearing debris and figuring out how to restart their lives. These riveting stories will remind listeners of the heartbreak, confusion, and perseverance of the Katrina survivors.

    Would you try another book from the author and/or the narrators?

    Would not waste my time on another Audible original. These were by far the most boring stories describing hurricane Katrina. All of the narrators were middle-class whites who suffered the least in the aftermath. As a result their stories are not interesting or in any way insightful. No wonder it was free.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing free from Audible.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Yes.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Hell no.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Playing upon our most primal fears, Stephen King draws us into his sinister world - a place where sane men and women see their lives shattered, their realities distorted and destroyed. Now, listeners can probe even deeper into the mind of the master storyteller of the macabre, with this third unabridged production of 5 classic short stories, from King's best selling collection, Night Shift.

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.
