    “Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued 13-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell.

    William says: "As a new Chuck Palahniuk reader, I liked it a lot!"
    "Just not what I was hoping for..."

    Story

    It starts out great. But as the story progresses, it feels more and more rushed. The last quarter of the book I could almost hear the editor banging on the door demanding the final draft.
    With the one exception of Megan meeting Satan for the second time, its very predictable. Almost like a short story that was expanded to make a book. If you are looking for anoher Haunted or Fight Club, this is not going to get it.

    People refer to the infected as "zombies" although that's not what they really are. The word zombie implies the infected have died and reanimated. The thing is, those infected with Mad Swine, they didn't die. They're still alive; they even breathe. They're just not human anymore. No one really knows how or why it started. What we do know is that the H1N1 virus - or the damn vaccinations that everyone so anxiously lined up for hours to get - mutated in a bad way.

    Amanda says: "Not bad!"
    "Basic ex special forces vs. zombies."

    Story

    Not a life changing book, but a fun listen.
    If you liked "One Second After" as well as "I am Legend" and "The Walking Dead"; I think you will like this book.
    I am looking forward to new books in the series.

    Story

    Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte has paid his dues in battle and in blood. Now assigned to Area 51, he fights the toughest enemy of his career: the alien race who arrived on Earth millennia ago and have returned to claim the planet. Mike has dodged bullets and faced weapons of mass destruction to give humanity another day of reprieve. But when his lover, scientist Lisa Duncan, falls into evil hands, Mike must decide which prize means the most to him - the woman he loves or the legendary Grail.

    John Fernandes says: "Martin Gollery (Narrator) should be avoided!"
    "It might be a half way decent story but..."

    Story

    The story seems to have an interesting premise, but I could only get so far before the sing-song narration made me quit listening.
    Each sentence was turned up at the end like the narrator was asking a question. For me, at least, this made it un-listenable.
