    When a brutal snowstorm shut down all the flights in and out of Chicago, Todd Curry and a few other stranded passengers rented a Jeep to drive the rest of the way to their destinantions. But along a forested, isolated road, they picked up a disoriented man wandering through the snow. His car wouldn't start and his daughter had vanished. Strangest of all were the mysterious slashes cut into the back of his coat, straight down to the flesh....When they arrived in the nearest town it seemed deserted.

    Heidi Hawthorne is a 37-year-old FM radio DJ and a recovering drug addict. Struggling with her newfound sobriety and creeping depression, Heidi suddenly receives an anonymous gift at the station - a mysteriously shaped wooden box branded with a strange symbol. Inside the box is a promotional record for a band that identifies themselves only as The Lords. There is no other information. She decides to play it on the radio show as a joke, and the moment she does, horrible things begin to happen.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Three attempts to finish the book.... The only reason I did it is was because Rob Zombie wrote it. Witches' Sabbaths that nobody ever heard of, poor or no research, and slot of splatter. This is better as a movie i think, the bright side is that your not going to have hight expectation then you watch the movie.


    What didn’t you like about Erin Bennett’s performance?

    Yes

    It didn’t take long for the world to die. The dead rose with no explanation and only one purpose...to eat living flesh. Born on the day everything died, the world of the living dead is the only world that Aaron knows. Kept in relative isolation from the walking corpses, his family teaches him how to read and write, how to survive on his own. After a tragedy hits close to home, he discovers he is different than any human left alive. The undead want nothing to do with him....

    A walled city surrounded by lush land, protected by high mountain summits, and fortified by a massive gate to secure the only pass into the valley, The Bastion remained humanity's last hope against the fearsome undead creatures known as the Inferi Scourge. On one fateful day, the valley gate failed and the Inferi Scourge overran and destroyed the human settlements outside the walls, trapping the remaining survivors inside the city. Now, decades later, the last remaining humans are struggling to survive....

    Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect.

    Would you listen to The Host again? Why?

    The first time I started listening I got tired after about an hour, did not really understand what was happening and I had expecte something else ... Then I gave it another chance, which I absolutely do not regret! The story is superb, you laugh and cry. is among the best I've ever heard and read. listen right now on the book for the second time!


    What other book might you compare The Host to and why?

    Can't think of someone..


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    everything!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they accepted the wanderer and when they took away the soul of the young woman, but saved it, if for the original soul wasen't still in the body, and when Wanda helped to get antibiotics....and EVERYTING!!

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Barbara says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"
    "Boring"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nobody! I diden't get it at all! First time i listening for two hours, coulden't take it any more. Second time for Three hours, coulden't take it any more AGAIN..Then I haden't anyting to listen to, so I finish...my bad!


    Has In the Woods turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What does Steven Crossley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was the only thing that was good whit the book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from In the Woods?

    Like 10 hours? No wait, this book is so bad that it is a shame to even publish the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Weird and boring action, the big thing was that the protagonist had been kidnapped and suffered from memory loss, what happened to the mysteriumet?

    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.

    Yes, and he is wonderfull!
