    This novel allows the unscrupulous and proud Queen of the Nile to recount her own tale. A masterful recreation of history.

    Classic Margaret George!! This novel was fascinating and bursting with knowledge of the period and places! Riveting right until the very end!

    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Amazon Customer says: "An exceptional story, but I miss George Guidall."
    "Bad direction."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the narration, who ever was directing this production should be fired. I used to listen to Stephen King read the Dark Tower, Drawing of the three, and Wastelands, on tape. All were well read and entertaining, but this one lead much to be desired. I don't think it's Stephen's fault, again fire the director, he/she didn't do their job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Re-visiting Roland's world.


    What didn’t you like about Stephen King’s performance?

    He was poorly directed, many things could have been improved.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I don't think that this book would lend it self well to a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this audio production to anyone. (Unless you're a die hard fan like me, and can look past the performance.)

    It’s been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in The Strain and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There has been a mass extermination of humans orchestrated by the Master - an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers. The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters - Dr. Eph Goodweather, Dr. Nora Martinez, Vasiliy Fet, and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It’s their job to overturn this devastating new world order.

    Story

    The first one was great, the second was so so, and this one was terrible! This went from a great premise to a cheap copy of an Ann Rice novel. I loved the idea of the infection, and the fact that it was a virus that was spread from vampire to victim. But when they took a page out of “Memnock the Devil” and wrote in angles!!!!!! They flushed it down the drain, having said that the narrator did an awesome job!!

    Evil is most assuredly afoot - and Britain’s fate rests in the hands of an alluring renegade... and a librarian. These are dark days indeed in Victoria’s England. Londoners are vanishing, then reappearing, washing up as corpses on the banks of the Thames, drained of blood and bone. Yet the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences - the Crown’s clandestine organization whose bailiwick is the strange and unsettling - will not allow its agents to investigate. Fearless and exceedingly lovely Eliza D. Braun, however, with her disturbing fondness for dynamite, refuses to let the matter rest...

    What a great book! Eliza D. Braun and her partner Wellington Books are fun to listen to and entertaining to follow, you never know what’s next. The mix of mayhem and comedy make this audio book hard to turn off, so make sure you are ready to get angry at anyone who tries to disrupt you. If you've never listened to a steam punk novel I suggest that you make this one your first. I really hope that Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine will continue to write more about these two.
