    Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys - Caleb, Fox, and Gage - went on a camping trip to the Pagan Stone. And 21 years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men - and the women who love them.

    Story

    When not attempting female voices, or the third male protagonist, the narrator's voice was well suited to the story. However, that was Only about 40% of the time. The rest of the time, 60%, it was painful to listen to and I couldn't make it through.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Story

    I listened to this book traveling across country. It was a great choice. The story was original. As noted in other reviews, a lot of detail given to weaponry at times--but oddly enough, I felt this helped me better understand the attitudes and characters better.

    In regards to the narration, Mr. Wyman's characterizations were engaging and his choices helped me engage in with the characters and care about both the plot and them.

    The town of Lake Woebegotton, MN is a small town, filled with ordinary (yet above average) people, leading ordinary lives. Ordinary, that is, until the dead start coming back to life, with the intent to feast upon the living! Now this small town of above average citizens must overcome their petty rivalries and hidden secrets in order to survive an onslaught of the dead.

    Story

    The is a truly great hommage to its non-zombified origins. The audiobook format makes it even better. The narrator 's coice is similar enough to Garrison Keilor's to enhanse the story, but different enough to also bring forth good humor.

    The set-up, as well as the execution of the events are well-paced. And, like some NRP programs, I found myself sitting in my car listening to more of the story after having arrived at my destination.

    Great fun, for sure.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Midnight Crystal to be better than the print version?

    I have read all of the Jayne Castle/Jayne Ann Krentz books. While formulaic, they are fun. So, recently I decided to try some of them in audiobook format. I have to say, I'm glad I did. The narrator brings a new sense of enjoyment to the series.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not especially time well spent. The story was interesting, but meandered more than made much sense.


    Would you recommend Born in Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend some of Ms. Roberts other fiction, the Key, Circle, or Sign of Seven trilogies are better done and time better spent, in my opinion.


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

    The pace of the narration was very good, it was more structural inadequacies I experienced than in the performance. His differentiation among characters was great.
