    When Eddie was 12 years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten harder - and money tighter - since his father died and the family bakery closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside their modest Christmas tree that magical morning. What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.

    Glenn Beck made this story come to life. My husband saw it live, we both read the hardcover book and I listened to the audiobook. Know matter how you view it, this book is great, full of emotion, so have your kleenex handy. :J

    In a ruined and toxic landscape, a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Sheriff Holston, who has unwaveringly upheld the silo’s rules for years, unexpectedly breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside.

    What did you love best about Wool?

    The silo. I can imagine being in it with the stair case and holding onto the never ending banister


    What does Amanda Sayle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Poor narration. Please use a male voice. Amanda has some very quirky sounds that I didn't care for. I would have stopped listening but found the story to be awesome. I will listen to one more. Hope it has a better narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I never have time to listen in one sitting.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I will not watch it.I love imagination and a film would take that away.


    Any additional comments?

    Please just keep adding to the series.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Woods to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the book. I use audible more frequently so that I can listen on my way to work, work breaks, doing laundry etc.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Gill's mother


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had time that would have been great.

    This is the first Harlan Corbin book I have listened to. I was about to return the book after listening to the first 4 chapters, then my husband, who is a big fan of Corbin said I should try at least one more chapter.I'm so glad I did. The book was great.the story line picked up and I could not wait to finish it.
    All the characters were well done, I especially liked the phone calls! Mr Corbin has a wonderful style and plays on our human emotions. Scott brick, who I had a hard time getting use to became very easy to listen too. I think I was just so used too another narrator that I wasnt ready to clear my mind.
    If you haven't given Harlan Corbin a listen I highly recommend his books and Scott brick is an AWESOME narrator.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    I liked this book more then I thought I would. The reason I decided to buy it was because the television mini series is coming on June 24, 2013 and I wanted to see if it was something I would like to watch. YES it will be awesome. BARBIE is my favorite character. He has a great sense of humor and honor. The townspeople learn that in tight times you need to take responsibility not only for yourself but for others. You help those in need, you share and use integrity. Then there are those that live an underhanded life, they care only about their own gains. They bring their immoral dreams to life by taking advantage of others, they do things that those with a conscious would never do.
    In this book peoples true colors come out. Survivors are not always the strongest. I am looking forward to the TV series and hope it is as good as the book. I can imagine how we could possibly live in a world similar to Under the Dome.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    John Taylor is a P.I. with a special talent for finding lost things in the dark and secret center of London known as the Nightside. He's also the reluctant owner of a very special-and dangerous-weapon. Excalibur, the legendary sword. To find out why he was chosen to wield it, John must consult the Last Defenders of Camelot, a group of knights who dwell in a place that some find more frightening than the Nightside. London Proper. It's been years since John's been back-and there are good reasons for that.
