    The charismatic and cunning Spenser Mallon is a campus guru in the 1960s, attracting the devotion and demanding sexual favors of his young acolytes. After he invites his most fervent followers to attend a secret ritual in a local meadow, the only thing that remains is a gruesomely dismembered body and the shattered souls of all who were present.

    Overall

    Don't waste your money/credits on this book. I felt I was drugged while listening to this book. I could not get into it. I pride myself in listening to every book I get no matter how bad it may turn out, but this one broke me. I could not listen to one more repeat or forward/backward telling. I am not for sure I would reconize the end when it came. I have liked his books in the past, but this is not worth even trying. If I can save even one person from trying this book, I have done my part

    In 1911 two wealthy British heiresses, Claire and Dora Williamson, came to a sanitorium in the forests of the Pacific Northwest to undergo the revolutionary fasting treatment of Dr. Linda Burfield Hazzard. It was supposed to be a holiday for the two sisters. But within a month of arriving at what the locals called Starvation Heights, the women were emaciated shadows of their former selves, waiting for death.

    Story

    This story is told in an overall form, no depth, no detail. Just a who what where and when. I don't usually write, but felt compeled to save others their money

    Story

    From the depths of the Indian Ocean, a horrific plague has arisen to devastate humankind - a disease that's unknown, unstoppable, and deadly. But it is merely a harbinger of the doom that is to follow. Aboard a cruise liner transformed into a makeshift hospital, Dr. Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis, operatives of SIGMA Force, search for answers to the bizarre affliction. But there are others with far less altruistic intentions.

    "best book this year"
    Overall

    This is the first book this year good enough to feel like I need to tell others how good it is.
    5 stars aren't enough. Most long listening unabridged books do too much repeating. This book moves forward at a good clip and no repeating that I can remember. I am still engrossed in it and don't want to turn it off to work, sleep or anything else that would get in the way of my listening. All of Rollins books are good but this is his best yet

    Step Fletcher, his pregnant wife DeAnne, and their three children move to Steuben, North Carolina, with high hopes. But Step's new job with a software company turns out to be a snake pit, and 8-year-old Stevie's school is worse. As Stevie retreats into himself, focusing more and more on a mysterious computer game and a growing troop of imaginary friends, the Fletchers' concern turns to terror.

    Dave says: "A knockout"
    "Book of Mormon"
    Overall

    The book title sounded so promising and I am always looking for new authors, but I am truly disapointed in this book. If I would have wanted to know so much in depth about the Mormon church I would ask, but to have it told to me in disquise of a "story" is a sad way for a sly "home schooling". If they come to my door I can say no, but buying a book I felt compeled to listen the book out and hope the, at first occational, preaching turn into the story of the title. No story line of the disappearing boys was weaved through the story, just a blip on the screen as it were, and a lot of mindless drivel of life in-between. The book had potential but the plot was lost so we could be taught some Mormon stuff. I agree that it should be put in religious books more than mystrey books although it is not enough of either to be put anywhere. A waste of money - don't buy
