    High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was the best quarterback to play for the Messina Spartans. 15 years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into a football dynasty. Now, as Coach Rake's "boys" sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him.

    Patti says: "Great listen!"
    "Deep with something I couldn't find"
    Overall

    Bleachers was enjoyable and I could relate to some of the small-town ramblings but overall, it left me not wanting to hear it again. It's worth the time - but not twice.

    Enter the world of the Pendleton: The original owner became a recluse - and was rumored to be more than half mad - after his wife and two children were kidnapped in 1896 and never found. The second owner suffered a worse tragedy in 1935, when his house manager murdered him, his family, and the entire live-in staff.... Craftsmen and laborers working on renovations disappear or go mad.... For years, the Pendleton is a happy place, until a bad turn comes again.... Voices in unknown languages are heard in deserted rooms....

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or Peter Berkrot?

    The first Dean Koontz book I read was Lightening - Loved it. I've enjoyed many Dean Koontz books and several he wrote under pseudonyms - but this book was a total disappointment. I'm sure I'll read and / or listen to more DK books. If this had been my first, it might have been my last. Narration was good.


    What was most disappointing about Dean Koontz’s story?

    I think there were pieces of what might have been a good story but nothing held together - I began to wonder if DK really wrote it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There was no favorite scene since the scenes seldom connected to anything except the next scene - jumped around so it was hard to keep track of what was happening where and when.

    A brilliant meteor lights up the Maine coast and two young women borrow a boat and set out for a distant island to find the impact crater. A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars and it appears to have been activated. Sixty hours and counting.

    adam says: "Not good"
    "Lots of small flaws"
    Overall

    This book was pretty well put together until the final implausible chapters - almost like he didn't know how to end it and picked the most likely character with the most unlikely scenario. And, there were technical flaws. I just hate writers who write about guns and don't know them. The made-in-Israel Desert Eagle is NOT a Glock! It's worth a listen but it's not high on my list of recommendations.

    The "blue flu" has struck the Seattle Police Force and the majority of officers are on an unofficial strike. Overworked and understaffed, detective Lou Boldt is committed to remaining on the job no matter what. But when a string of robberies and the brutal near-murder of a female cop descend on the city, the pressure of being a nearly one-man operation threatens Boldt's psyche and his marriage.

    Snoodely says: "Intricate plotting"
    "Good story - horrible narration"
    Overall

    Your first clue - the author is the narrator. With very few exceptions (Bill Bryson is one exception), authors are NOT great narrators. Good narrators bring the story to life, poor ones, even when they know the story well, make it dry and colorless. This could be a 4-star listen with a better narrator. If you love Ridley Pearson's stories, get it - but if if you're not a super Pearson fan, this one might be better read than listened to.

    Best-selling novelist Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich is a lucky man and he knows it. He makes a handsome living doing what he enjoys. His wife, Penny, a children's book author and illustrator, is the love of his life. Together they have a brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed "Spooky," and a non-collie named Lassie, who's all but part of the family. So Cubby knows he shouldn't let one bad review of his otherwise triumphant new book get to him.

    Derek B. says: "I cant sleep!"
    "Another Koontz Masterpiece? - not this time"
    Overall

    Dean Koontz has written some masterpieces but this isn't one of them. There's much movement and action but little in the way of depth. If you're new to Koontz, don't judge him by this effort - go back and listen to Lightning, Strangers, the Bad Place and Watchers.

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all...his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

    Serra55 says: "Dangerous Waters"
    "Worth the time only because it's short!"
    Overall

    I seldom give any Dean Koontz book a less-than-4-star review but this will be an exception. Medically, this book is like a tired Robin Cook novel. If it hadn't been for a sprinkling of the supernatural, the entertainment value would have been negligible. I was so far ahead of the story line that even the last-minute twists didn't turn this into a thriller for me.

    Looking for Alaska is Peter's account of eighteen months spent traveling over twenty thousand miles in tiny bush planes, on snow machines and snowshoes, in fishing boats and kayaks, on the Alaska Marine Highway and the Haul Road. Hearing and living the amazing stories of many Alaskans from Barrow to Craig, Seward to Deering, and everywhere in between, Peter gets to know this place in a way that only he can.

    KPS says: "good yarn, poor delivery"
    "A Great Listen for an Insomniac"
    Overall

    I have learned much about Alaska - a place to which I badly want to travel. I'd even like to go with Peter Jenkins. BUT - I don't want to listen to him talk. The steady monotone and plodding pace of the narration will either drive one crazy or put him or her to sleep. In the case of this book, the printed version might be the best use of your dollars.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    CynNC says: "Captivating"
    "One of very few I would listen to twice"
    Overall

    I seldom listen to books of this length - much less do I want to listen to them again. The juxtaposition of good and evil - Godliness and Godlessness - is perfectly drawn. A historian friend requires this book for her college history students, feeling the portrayal of the period is as good as it gets. You will love it and the sequel - World Without End.

    Master of suspense James Patterson continues the Women's Murder Club series with this nail-biter of a sequel to 1st to Die. Four women - a police detective, an assistant D.A., a journalist, and a medical examiner - combine their efforts, risking everything, to catch a serial killer. "As with Patterson's best novels," Booklist says, "the surprises keep coming until the final pages."

    Jean says: "Painful pastime"
    "Decent Story - Technically Lacking"
    Overall

    Someone who knows something about policework and guns needs to edit Patterson's novels. Just for your information: Glocks don't have click on / click off safties. It's highly unlikely that a police officer would have an old 40 caliber service revolver. Revolvers don't have clips. Police officers don't have 20 caliber anything at least not that I've ever heard of. Added to the fact that the same girl had cornrows and corn stalks in her hair makes this a technical disaster

    Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Florida bullies are pretty much like bullies everywhere. But Roy finds himself oddly indebted to the hulking Dana Matherson. If Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is the first interesting thing Roy's seen in Florida.

    Native Texan says: "Clever and surprising!"
    "Too much fun!"
    Overall

    Written for children / teens - but I could not stop listening. This book brought back emotions from my "earlier" years and made me feel good about them. You must listen and let your kids (12+) listen too.

    Some mistakes can change your life forever. For Matt Hunter, that mistake came in one terrible moment when his attempt to help a friend and stop a fight resulted in an accidental death. Matt was convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison. Time that his peers spent in college, Matt endured behind bars.

    Amber says: "Exciting!"
    "Great story - Great Narration"
    Overall

    I am quickly becoming a fan of Scott Brick's narrations. Not only is this a great story with well-paced action and superb characters - but Brick's "acting" gives everything more depth and power than could ever be delivered by the printed page. Get it, you won't be sorry!
