    "The genius shines through...flat-out riveting." (Publishers Weekly)
    "Makes for great midnight reading." (The New York Times)

    Murray Zetterholm says: "King Fans Will Love Dreamcatcher"
    "A Stephen King Novel - At its Best"
    Overall

    King has a way of making the unbelievable, believable. He drops clues throughout the book, and only at the end does everything tie together. His use of "flashbacks" to the character's childhood days are some of these clues, yet the "flashbacks" do not detract from the current story line, as you are so anxious to understand the "big picture."

    Absolutely great! Stephen King has not lost his touch for a great thriller, which is uniquely written in his own style. Highly recommended.

    Timothy Carrier, having a beer after work at his friend's tavern, enjoys drawing eccentric customers into amusing conversations. But the jittery man who sits next to him tonight has mistaken Tim for someone very different and passes to him a manila envelope full of cash. "Ten thousand now. You get the rest when she's gone."

    Dawn says: "Dawn"
    "Another Great Koontz"
    Overall

    The characters make the book, and Koontz has a knack for creating the most strange, interesting, off-center characters, and this book is no exception!

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    Dohna says: "Koontz did it again......."
    "Good Listen!"
    Overall

    A long, but good read from Koontz. The typical Koontz twist is known early on, but from that point the central theme is the inter-relationship of the characters, major and minor. This is slightly different from the typical Koontz line.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Carmela08 says: "Excellent spy tale"
    "A great listen!!"
    Overall

    It took me a while to get used to the reader, as I always end up comparing them to Scott Brick, who is great. About half way through, I was so in to the story that the narration became natural and I ended up liking it as well.

    Dylan O'Connor, a gifted young artist, is attacked by a mysterious "doctor" and injected with a strange substance. He is told that he is now a carrier of something that will either kill him...or transform his life. Then he is told that he must flee before the doctor's enemies hunt him down. Stunned, disbelieving, Dylan is turned loose to run for his life - and straight into an adventure that will turn the next 24 hours into an odyssey of terror, mystery, and wondrous discovery.

    Mary S. Murray says: "Superb"
    "Koontz still has it!"
    Overall

    I had thought Koontz was beginning to get complacent with old familar characters; but "By the Light of the Moon" shows the characters and unique writing of Koontz is still there!

    Former naval doctor Peter Crane is summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below on "Deep Storm", a stunningly advanced science-research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The top-secret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to an ancient mystery.

    Tom says: "Must Read"
    "Child's is a Player"
    Overall

    Lincoln Child's Deep Storm was a great listen. It is up there with the Baldacci's and other thrillers. You won't be disappointed.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "A brilliant presentation of technical facts"
    Overall

    Having a technical background, I could easily relate to the various subjects covered by Bryson in this book. However, the method in which it was presented, with so many "personal interest" stories of what, heretofore, I thought were, in their day, "geeks", it really brought out the sophistication of the individual, as well as the science.

    I can't imagine actually reading this book, as the various technical terms would soon be laborsome. However, listening to it read by an exceptional reader, clearly made the book enjoyable.

    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    G. Cernicky says: "great stuff"
    "Not a Da Vinci Code"
    Overall

    I am always hesitant in reviewing an abridged version of a story, as I don't feel I have "heard the whole story". However, in this case, I did review the Da Vinci Code (abridged), and this book from Dan Brown doesn't match the combination of historical fact and fictional story woven into the Da Vinci Code. An interesting theme and theory, but the characters were shallow, and there wasn't the twists and turns of the Da Vinci Code. Again, this may be due to being the abridged version, but apples to apples, it doesn't compare.

  • Skipping Christmas

    Best selling author John Grisham (A Time to Kill, The Brethren) returns with a new tale for modern times, offering a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become a part of our holiday tradition.

    Lisa says: "Simple Pleasures!"
    "A different Grisham"
    Overall

    Yes, the storyline is not a deep as the usual Grisham thriller, and yes, the outcome was somewhat predictable, but listening to this one over the Christmas holidays was light, funny and I, personally, could identify with some of the various situations the characters got themselves into.

    If you are looking for the typical John Grisham mystery, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a holiday classic, that is light and funny, this one is for you.
