    "Unique"
    Overall

    This is a very unique story, but it seems more like a diary-type story that jumps around a bit. There was no real climax. The story itself was intriguing, but I think the narrator made the story a bit more dull then if you were to have read it yourself.

    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    "Good book, Annoying sounds"
    Overall

    I'm only 2 hours into the book, and like the rest of his books, it is written very well.

    The "creepy" noises that keep on making are seriously distracting, and have played more times that I would like. I want to stop the story until the sounds stop....and then I realize....I can't. At one point, I couldn't tell what the narrator was saying over the sounds of the "creepy noises"

    "Good as a series...not sure about the language"
    Overall

    So, I've listened to the first couple books of this series, and it is intriguing...and of course it has the sensual part of it. But I think there is just way too much profanity in this one. I understand that it is part of who the main character is...but the language is just a little over the top in my opinion

  • Gemma

    Story
    (53)

    Gemma is the story of a child abduction written from two widely divergent points of view: 12 year-old Gemma and Hazen Wook, the 36-year-old man who abducts her. Hazen is a violent pedophile, a sexual obsessive, and Tilly does not white-wash or sanitize his thoughts in any way. This book is scary and not for the faint of heart.

    kristabela says: "wow"
    "Graphic"
    Overall

    I give the 2 stars because the story was written amazingly well and detailed, and the audio performance was amazing as well. However, it was a bit too descriptive for any parent to be comfortable with. I couldn't make it past the first few "points of view" without cringing from the detail. I couldn't finish even the first CD. it made me too uncomfortable.
