    It’s July 4, 2005, and the Frankel family is descending upon their beloved summer home in the Berkshires. But this is no ordinary holiday. The family has gathered to memorialize Leo, the youngest of the four siblings, an intrepid journalist and adventurer who was killed on that day in 2004, while on assignment in Iraq. Set against the backdrop of Independence Day and the Iraq War, The World Without You is a novel about sibling rivalries and marital feuds, about volatile women and silent men, and, ultimately, about the true meaning of family.

    Story

    This was a very underdeveloped story. I didn't understand why people did what they did when...seems like scenes were added just because someone said 'you need more sex' or make them do something 'crazy'. It was disjointed and weird. If I wasn't just listening I would have stopped reading and I ALWAYS finish books. Take a pass on this snooze.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Story

    I loved this story...it was really great and I understand why people are comparing it to the Stand...my all-time favorite book, EVER. It's not quite there, but still very good, with lots of great characters. I do have to agree the narration is awful. The women all sound like hags and sometimes the Maine accent comes out like a bad pirate or something somewhat British. Not great. I would, however, listen just for the story...or if you have the time, read the book. Mr. King...again, I applaud you!

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    In search of adventure, 29-year-old Conor Grennan traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe, a journey that began with a three-month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Children's Home, an orphanage in war-torn Nepal. Conor was initially reluctant to volunteer, unsure whether he had the proper skill, or enough passion, to get involved in a developing country in the middle of a civil war. But he was soon overcome by the herd of rambunctious, resilient children.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Little Princes the most enjoyable?

    Wonderful story that may make you cry but will have you chuckling as well.


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

    The voices and accents are wonderful and I would have never been able to pronounce 1/2 the words as well as he did.
