    Story
    (4597)

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    Story
    What other book might you compare The Ocean at the End of the Lane to and why?

    The Ocean is similar to American Gods in its imaginative take on the fringes of real life, especially when seen through the narrator-child's eyes.


    What about Neil Gaiman’s performance did you like?

    Few authors can perform their work like Gaiman. Gaiman's soulful reading of his work draws one ever further into the story.

    Story
    (3462)

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Passage again? Why?

    A dozen times, yes. Brilliant story, great narration.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely. The story is never dull throughout 36 hours.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me never want to leave its world.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an absolutely brilliant take on the vampire genre, with beauty, despair, heroism, and human flaw and achievement. It contains the best and worst of humanity, brought to bear by the extreme events it envisions.
