    Story
    (91)

    One morning in picture-perfect Bath, England, a teenage girl's body is found on the towpath of a canal: Lorne Woods - beautiful, popular, and apparently the victim of a disturbingly brutal murder. Zoe Benedict - Harley-riding police detective, independent to a fault - is convinced the department head needs to look beyond the usual domestic motives to solve the case.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know


    What could Mo Hayder have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I wouldn't presume to tell an author how to write a book for my enjoyment.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not totally bad, but the "Sally's daughter" writing as well as the narration voice of this character were horrible. The character, the voice were more than I could stand listening to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hanging Hill?

    It's the entire story, not scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    As inexpensive as it was it was still more than it is worth. It goes on and on and on. I didn't like the book, fell asleep listening, tried again, but I cannot continue to put myself through this just because it exists as part of my library.

  • Joyland

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Stephen King

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    Cozy Reader says: "The sweest and creepiest coming of age story!"
    "Excellent performance."

    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    Always.


    Any additional comments?

    A milder Stephen King, it was a nice story made better by the narrator.

    From Jeffery Deaver's tale of international terrorism to Lisa Jackson's dysfunctional family in the California wine country to Ridley Pearson's horrifying serial killer, this collection has something for everyone. Twenty-three best-selling and hot new authors in the genre have submitted original stories to make up this unforgettable blockbuster.

    Amazon Customer says: "IMHO Suspense doesn't work in bits and pieces"

    Advertised as "stories u just can't put down". I can and I did. Okay stories, not what I consider thrillers.
