    With barbarians at the gate and enemies within, two men must fight for the soul of the Republic. In a cave hacked out of rock two young boys appeal to the famed Roman oracle for a glimpse into their future. In the flickering torchlight the Sybil draws the blood-red shape of an eagle with wings outstretched: an omen of death. As they flee the cave in fear, Aulus and Lucius make an oath of loyalty until death. An oath that will be tested in the years to come. Narrator Nick Boulton brings this story of prophecy, courage, history and adventure to powerful life....

    What disappointed you about The Pillars of Rome?

    This is the slowest, worst performed book I have ever tried to listen to. I wish I could get a refund it is so bad. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ you can sleep through the soap operatic story line of droll details and conversations done in an unapologetic English dialect. Nothing redeemable in this book...Stay Away!


    What was most disappointing about Jack Ludlow’s story?

    SSSSLLLLLOOOOOOOWWWWWW story line with British accents and nooooo action.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This book should be recommended for teenage girls....pathetic


    What character would you cut from The Pillars of Rome?

    I would just burn the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I have that refund?

    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.

    What disappointed you about It?

    It wasn't scary. Way too many words nearly diluted the story completely. Too many similes! Blah Blah Blah, then to find out Mr. Kings fondness for child gangbanging...whatever.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    Can someone tell me how a child gang bang in the sewer helps "overcome the devil". The story was garbage. In this instance it is better to watch the movie where this crap is heavily edited.


    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Weber performance was a rose on top of a wet dog turd.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from It?

    I would have told Stevie to cut two thirds of this turd out.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my second Steven King novel, Tommyknockers was the first, I returned it and will return **it.

    When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror. John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks the town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life. It’s 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods.

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Edward Hermann?

    I don't know, this book was highly overrated.


    What could Stephen King have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It could have been 10 hours with its content. Too much blah blah blah with very little scary.


    Have you listened to any of Edward Hermann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so, his performance was fine


    Do you think The Tommyknockers needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Please No, it cannot be improved.
