    Escape from her macabre marriage is not as easy as fleeing to a new city, picking a new name, finding a new job, and lucking out with a new man. Not with a husband like Norman...

    Mrs. Margaret says: "AWESOME"
    "Not one of King's best, but very good."
    Overall

    A good story by one of my favorite authors. The dual narration worked well with Blair Brown doing an excellent job and King average as a narrator, switching back and forth really worked with the story. I could have done without the music which was very annoying. I also enjoyed the "real" parts of the story more than the "fantasy" and thought the ending was a little slow; but definitely worth a listen.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Great Story!"
    Overall

    I was very surprised at some of the negative reviews. People who think of King only as a horror writer should listen to, or read this book. Great characters and an excellent story. Very well narrated, and well worth the listen.

    In a minimum security federal prison known as Trumble, three former judges who call themselves the Brethren are quietly writing letters to unsuspecting victims of a monumental mail scam. Much to their delight, the money is pouring in. But now they've ensnared the wrong man and the Brethren's days of marking time are over.

    Margo says: "My Favorite Grisham to Date"
    "Great story and Narration."
    Overall

    Grisham always tells an excellent story, and this is no exception. An excellent book, and very well narrated by Mr. Muller.

    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Koontz is one of my favorites, and this is one of his best. Great story that keeps you coming back for more. Sollid narration.

    The first of a four-part audio series from Stephen King's best-selling book, Four Past Midnight. On a redeye flight from Los Angeles to Boston, only 11 passengers survive - but landing in a dead world makes them wish they hadn't.

    "Great Story, So So audio Book."
    Overall

    The first time I read this story I couldn't put it down, I read it in one night. Unfortunately the audio book, much like the made for TV movie was dissapointing. The music was annoying as were many of the narrator's voices. Still I gave it 4 starts because it's such a well written story by King and worth a listen .

    Harry Lyon was a rational man, a cop who refused to let his job harden his soul. Then one fateful day, he was forced to shoot a man--and a homeless stranger with bloodshot eyes uttered the haunting words that challenged Harry Lyon's sanity: "Ticktock, ticktock. You'll be dead in sixteen hours...Dead by dawn...Dead by dawn...Dead by dawn..."

    Bob says: "Mixed Feelings"

    Overall

    Not one of my favorites from Koontz, but solid narration, and kept me listening. A good story of good vs evil.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    Overall

    This was the first audiobook I purchased. I'm a big King fan and this had always been one of my favorites (both the novel and the mini series are great.) I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and soon realized I was spoiled by this being my first "listen." I have continued to purchase audiobooks and have enjoyed them, but to this point I feel as this one is still my favorite. Along with the fact that this is an unbelievably great story, the narrator is the best I;ve heard. This is the longest book I've listened too and yet I wish it was longer, I didn't want 'It" to end.

    A year had passed since little Danny's death - A year since his mother began the painful process of acceptance. But Tina Evans could have sworn she just saw her Danny in a stranger's car...Then she dreamed that Danny was alive. And when she awoke, she found a message waiting for her in Danny's bedroom - Two disturbing words scrawled on his chalkboard: NOT DEAD.

    I agree with some other reviews I've read. This is not one of Koontz's best. You can tell it's an early work. Still, a good listen.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You may have thought the movie was scary, but this is pure Stephen King as it was meant to be experience – performed frighteningly well by Campbell Scott. First published in 1977, The Shining quickly became a benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed.

    Eileen says: "Much better than the movie..."
    "One of my favorites"
    Overall

    This has always been one of my favorite novels and doesn't dissapoint in audio form. I love the movie, but the best thing about the movie is mainly what a great job Jack Nicholson does playing the psycho. The novel is so much better and so much more in depth. Actually the mini series made later on is closer to the book, it's just hard to picture the main character as anyone other than Nicholson. The narrator does an excellent job and this story will keep you coming back for more.

    From the moment these two players took the court on opposing sides, they engaged in a fierce physical and psychological battle. Their uncommonly competitive relationship came to symbolize the most compelling rivalry in the NBA. These were the basketball epics of the 1980s - Celtics vs Lakers, East vs West, physical vs finesse, Old School vs Showtime, even white vs black. Each pushed the other to greatness - together Bird and Johnson collected eight NBA Championships and six MVP awards.

    Marvin says: "BIRD AND MAGIC"
    "Great insight"
    Overall

    I'm a big sports fan, especially the Boston teams and I grew up watching this great rivalry. Still, sports books have never been my main read (usually King, Koontz, Grisham) and I only bought this because it was on special. Very glad I did. Jackie M. has always been a great writer and the fact that Bird and Magic were involved in writing the book, seemed to make a big difference. My favorite thing was hearing a lot of the little facts about different players and situations that you would never know. Solidly narrated this book brought back a lot of great memories of my childhood watching these 2 amazing players.
