    Fifteen-year-old Benny Imura lives in a world infested with zombies where, when a kid turns 15, he must get a job to continue receiving food rations. Benny has no interest in the family business of zombie killing, but figures he doesn’t have much of a choice. He’s tried out a bunch of other jobs, and hasn’t found anything he likes. But as Benny starts training with his brother, he learns things about being human that he never expected.

    Story

    Though it seems to take place in the not-too-distant future, this book feels very much like a Western with a Zombie problem. The brothers rang true, the younger resenting the older for what he feels are legitimate reasons, the older quietly letting him find his own way. I'll read the next one, if there is a sequel.

    The most hated woman in Savannah, Georgia, is about to be set free. Twenty years ago, Blondell O’Henry was convicted of murdering her eldest daughter and wounding her two other children. The prosecution argued that beautiful, selfish Blondell wanted to be rid of them to be with her lover. Now Blondell’s son, Niall, has recanted his testimony and demolished the case in the process. Reporter Nikki Gillette is determined to get the true story, and not just for professional reasons. Blondell’s murdered daughter, Amity, was Nikki’s childhood friend.

    Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Julia Whelan?

    I actually usually like Lisa Jackson books, so I will probably try one again.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No idea.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She did not have an accent when narrating the book, only when doing the dialogue. I found that distracting.


    What character would you cut from Tell Me?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I just really didn't like the main character. She made stupid selfish decisions. I'd probably slap her if I knew her in real life.

    I loved Jay Asher's "13 Reasons Why", so of course I wanted to check this book. I felt the girl was a little nuts, but otherwise everything was as believable as it could be, considering what the book is about.

    In the Forest, set in the west of Ireland, is the story of a young man who shoots dead three people in a forest glade. The young man, Mich O'Kane, is "not all there in the head" as one character puts it. By puberty, he is already committing petty crimes, ending up in borstal. By the time he is back home he has also served time in a British jail and is an institutionalised criminal.

    I've read her work before, and this was good, but it was so closely based on a true story that I felt uncomfortable reading it as fiction.

    In Redemption Street, retired NYPD officer and newly minted PI Moe Prager, travels up to a decaying Borscht Belt hotel to uncover the truth behind a decades-old fire that killed 17 people, including his high-school crush. Away from his beloved Brooklyn and out of his element, Moe finds that the locals aren't as eager to dredge up the painful past or to stir up the embers of that long-dead fire as he seems to be.

    Ted says: "Very Good, Recommend But...."

But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

  • The Sociopath Next Door

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

    Story

    You would imagine that what is basically a textbook about sociopaths would be boring, but this book never was. It explained a lot of what has happened in my life and helped me come to terms with why there never seemed to be a WHY when certain people did things I couldn't understand.

    Also helped me realize I am not one! Ha ha!

    The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author. The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.

    Story

    I like characters who go their own way and do their own thing, and Virgil is very much like that. Very determined to get the job done, but not so much that he doesn't sneak a little fishing in. I like the Virgil books better than the other John Sandford series as you get to see a little more of the state and the people who live in the smaller, more rural areas.

    Makes me want to move to Wyoming and befriend people similar to who he writes about. No one is too complicated and no one appears to be full of themselves or full of crap. The narrator is perfect!
