    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    Another review by a long time King fan. While this is a different style for King, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. There was enough of the traditional King blended into the story. The narration was top notch and helped to keep me engaged.

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    What did you love best about Odd Apocalypse?

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but felt the plot & story lines were lacking in the sequels. This is a refreshing addition to the series as it reminds me why I first fell in love with this character. The story line is tighter and it flows very smoothly. Narration as always, is spot-on. I am looking forward to the last 2 books in this series.


    What other book might you compare Odd Apocalypse to and why?

    If you like dark comedy or dry humor, recommend the Charley Davidson Grave series by Darynda Jones

    Story

    I really enjoyed "A Dirty Job" and was entertained by "Bloodsucking Fiends". However, this sequel was difficult to get through. The overall story was okay, but many of the characters were juvenile and under developed. The narration of the character Abby was not to my taste - I came close to stopping the book several times. I agree with another comment that this is really more of "teen / young adult" book

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    "Last 7 hours were much better than the first 14"
    Overall

    As others have already stated, this book is overly long. I agree this is a very complex topic, but I did not need the first fourteen hours to understand who was a bully, who was a victim, who lacked self-esteem, etc - it was very obvious. I also found the characters a little too "stereotypical". Not every "geek" is a victim and not every "jock" is a bully - would have preferred to spent 21 hours to hear a story with some more complex characters. Overall, an okay read - not sure if I will select another book by this author in the future.

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    Story

    This was my 2nd book by this author. It was an easy book to listen to, but do not expect to be challenged by the plot, the characters, or the ending. Very few surprises, but an okay way to pass the time on a plane or in the car. While not as bad as Ricochet, I struggled with the narration of the male characters - the attempts at the Southern accents are, at times, painful to listen to.

    If you are looking for a book that does not require much effort, this is a decent choice.

    Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

    Story

    This story was a worthwhile listen. Some of the plot points were obvious, but there were a few surprises. The narration of the male characters was a significant distraction, not sure what the narrator was trying to accomplish. I recommend this story, but give youself a few hours to get use to the sounds of the male characters.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    If you are a fan of Stephen King, you should like this story. I am a long time fan and, although not his best, it is a pretty easy listen. The narration by Campbell Scott is very well done. I search by narrator as much as author and will definitely search for other books narrated by him

    Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers; and Oy.

    The other review's will give you a background on the story. I am a longtime King fan, but this was my 2nd audiobook. George Guidall's narration of this story was first rate and made the experience very enjoyable. I now research the narrator almost as much as the author / story when looking for a new audiobook.
