    Reeling from a painful break-up, English instructor and avid book lover Wesley Smith is haunted by his ex-girlfriend's parting shot: "Why can't you just read off the computer like everyone else?" He buys an e-book reader out of spite, but soon finds he can use the device to glimpse realities he had never before imagined, discovering literary riches beyond his wildest dreams...and all-too-human tragedies that surpass his most terrible nightmares.

    "If you're a Dark Tower fan, you'll love it"
    Overall

    I have read the entire Dark Tower series multiple times and its my favorite series of all time. I know Stephen has his detractors, but I really love his stories. If you're a Dark Tower fan, about half way through this quick listen, you'll really appreciate this story. I have to admit that the ending left me wanting a bit more, but I enjoyed the story all the same. Knowing what I know about the Dark Tower series, when certain elements come into play, you can't help but laugh! Overall, a worthwhile listen for me personally.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    "Excellent book.. highly recommended"
    Overall

    If you have an interest in spy novels, you should listen to this book. Yes, its very long. Don't let that scare you. Its very engaging and quite suspenseful at times.

    There are times when you read a book and you enjoy it so much you hate to "leave" the world that the book has created. You want to heard more stories from this rich world that the author has created for you. I felt that way about this book.
