    When Chet and Bernie happen upon a prison work crew that includes Frenchie Boutette, an old criminal pal they sent up the river, getting a new case is the last thing they expect.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sound and the Furry to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sound and the Furry?

    When Chet was lost in the water.


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

    I couldn't imagine a different Chet.


    If you could rename The Sound and the Furry, what would you call it?

    In this book, Corey Taylor undertakes something never before attempted in the history of rock superstardom: he takes you with him as he journeys undercover through various ghostbusting groups who do their best to gather information and evidence about the existence of spirits. Taylor also gives you a behind-the-scenes tour of his crazy life and the many beyond-the-grave events he's encountered. (You'll be shocked how often Slipknot has been invaded by the supernatural).

    "Love the narration!"

    Certainly not an all-time favorite, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Definitely the fact that Corey Taylor narrated this himself. Made the whole I g much more captivating.


    What about Corey Taylor’s performance did you like?

    It's his story! Who better to perform it. He has a great voice and inserted his humor and sarcasm perfectly.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    No secret stays hidden forever. A phone call from an old friend sets mysterious book researcher Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery that has eluded him for centuries. Little does he suspect a young librarian holds the key to an ancient secret, nor could he expect the danger Beatrice De Novo would attract. Now both will follow a twisted maze leading from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a passion that could destroy them both.

    B. says: "Fantastic story--far less than ideal narrator"

    A Discovery of Witches. Stories and characters are quite similar and just as enjoyable.


    Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

    Beatrice. Love her sarcasm!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh out loud a few times.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Maggie, of course. She is an absolute LOVE from the moment you meet her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Stieg Larsson

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "I really enjoyed this story."
    Overall

    After you get past the swedish names that all sound the same, you get immersed into this mystery! I didn't want it to end. I would highly recommend this book. Just don't give up on it in the beginning, the story picks up and moves very fast to the end.
