    What made the experience of listening to The Demonologist the most enjoyable?

    The narrator sounded just how I would expect Ed Warren to sound.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I've listened to this book twice now and anyone interested in the supernatural at all should read or listen to it and take notes. It's not only informative but incredibly entertaining as well.

    Twenty years ago, 16-year-old Tara Martin disappeared from a small town in the heart of England. Now, her sudden return and the mind-bending tale of where she’s been will challenge our very perception of the truth. For 20 years after Tara Martin disappeared, her parents and her brother, Peter, lived in denial of the grim fact that she was gone for good. Then suddenly on Christmas Day, the doorbell rings at her parents’ home, and there, dishevelled and slightly peculiar looking, Tara stands. It’s a miracle, but alarm bells are ringing for Peter. Tara’s story just does not add up.

    Christine Temetri is at her wits’ end. For years she’s covered the increasingly bizarre activities of End Times cults for the Banner, a religious news magazine. Yet Christine, who once dreamed of being a "real" writer, has nothing to show for the gig other than a regular paycheck and serious doubt that Armageddon will occur in time for her next deadline. But after a mysterious man entrusts her with a locked briefcase and orders to "take it to Mercury", Christine finds herself face-to-face with a ping-pong-playing angel by the name of Galileo Mercury.

    Awesome story, almost believable. If you enjoy stories on the supernatural or spiritual books you will enjoy this one. I hope he writes more.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    What made the experience of listening to Doctor Sleep the most enjoyable?

    This was one of King's better works. I have read several of his titles and this one is better than most, which is saying something. He didn't overload this one with disgusting or vile scenes and it's an edge-of-your-seat plot that keeps you wondering.

    The First Phone Call from Heaven tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start receiving phone calls from the afterlife. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out. An allegory about the power of belief - and a page-turner that will touch your soul - Albom's masterful storytelling has never been so moving and unexpected.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I have read two of Albom's other titles and thoroughly enjoyed them both. This book was disappointing. I didn't finish it to be completely honest. I kept waiting for something to happen or some great tidbit of wisdom or even something especially heartwarming, it never came, so I gave up.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The people calling from Heaven should have something a little more insightful to say. Angels should call too, at least, if not God.

    If you are visiting Georgia this would be a great book to read. However, if you are looking for an entertaining story this is not it. It is written like a travel guide.

    The three Beauchamp women—Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid—live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret—they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries....

    It was supposed to be a fresh start. A place for Steve and Melody Samson to begin their new life together away from the noise and crime of the city. However, their new home and an idyllic cottage nestled deep within the dense solitude of Oakwell forest - has a disturbing history, hidden for generations by the locals. There is evil in Hope House, and the cursed forest that surrounds it. Evil that has awakened after lying dormant for decades, and has terrifying plans for the young couple. Once you hear the whispers, it may already be too late.

    Would you try another book from Michael Bray and/or VOplanet Studios and Matt Josdal ?

    The story was great. It was a story that would be better read than listened. The narrator did not at all capture the suspense or terror of the scenes or the emotions of the characters. The tone of the story was lost in the narration.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was great.


    What didn’t you like about VOplanet Studios and Matt Josdal ’s performance?

    The narrator did not use appropriate emotion in his voice or inflection. He sounded cheerful at times that were intended to sound frightening.

    Halloween LaVeau is descended from a long line of witches. Yes, her name is Halloween. The cosmic universe is definitely playing some kind of sick joke on her. She's the ultimate witch cliche, complete with a black cat and spooky house. Thank heavens she's missing the warts and flying broom. When Halloween inherits her great aunt's manor, she decides to put the house to good use as a bed and breakfast. Her first guest is the sinfully good-looking Nicolas Marcos, but he's not here for the continental breakfast.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's a good premise for a book, and I love stories with witches (which is why I chose this book), but it is poorly written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character is a young, horny, and rather dumb lady.


    What three words best describe Saskia Maarleveld’s performance?

    The narrator is good with voices, however she does not help to detract from the cheesiness of the writing


    Was Forever Charmed worth the listening time?

    It was not the worst book I ever read, but it was not the best either.

    Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl ? Why or why not?

    Yes I would. While the dialogue and overall tone of the series is juvenile, the writing itself is well developed and descriptive.
