  • The Killer Inside Me

    Everyone in the small town of Central City, Texas, loves Lou Ford. But behind the platitudes and glad-handing lurks a monster the likes of which few have ever seen. In The Killer Inside Me, Thompson goes where few novelists have dared to go, giving us a pitch-black glimpse into the mind of the American Serial Killer years before Charles Manson, John Wayne Gacy, and Brett Easton Ellis's American Psycho.

    Ron says: "Much better than those ratings indicate."

    What disappointed you about The Killer Inside Me?

    Everything but the narrator. More specifically the main character. If this book is what people consider disturbing then they have not read the likes of Stephen King.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Kill You Twice by Chelsea Cain


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

    How about my least favorite - don't get me wrong, the narrarator was great but he made the women sound nagging and annoying.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I just don't know what others saw that was so great about the book. The best part was the fact that the book was from the viewpoint of the killer, but even that was dull. Don't bother is my best advice.

  • Zombie Fallout: Zombie Fallout, Book 1

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    "Smart zombies w/ a side of sarcasm and humor!"

    Story

    I really enjoyed this audio book for both the narrator and the story line. Tufo developed a great set of characters and his sense of humor in inappropriate times is exactly what this genre needed. It's not too much or too forced, just plain funny. I also really liked how he gave the zombies a life of their own in a way I haven't seen before. Great read and I will definitely be reading more of this series.

    Story

    An innocent family finds itself completely helpless against the sudden onset of paranormal activity in their quiet rural home. A knife embedded in a kitchen cupboard, crockery smashed by invisible hands, and blood-chilling growls emit from thin air. Caroline and her husband Neil search for answers as they try to protect their family from the unseen entity that seems determined to rip them apart. The biggest question looms over them like a dark cloud ... who is going to help us?

    Restless says: "Impressive"
    "Just okay, definitely NOT scary"

    Story

    Maybe it was my fault for expecting more drama and horror in this book but to me, it was nothing more than a list of events read out loud. If you are looking for a personal account of odd happenings, you might enjoy this book. If you're looking to be scared or enthralled then I think this will be a let down. I also didn't particularly care for the narrator either.

    Story

    I actually went back and listened to this a second time to see if I missed something because of all the great 'it's so scary" reviews. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad story, it's just NOT scary. The narrator was awesome. I really liked his voice and it's great that this book is downloaded for charity, so should you download it - absolutely. Just don't think it's going to keep you up at night. Enjoy it for what it's worth, a short entertaining story.
