    Story
    (1968)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "Redundant, unfocused, and pointless"
    Overall

    We listened to this book will driving cross country. The plot was very basic and predictable. The nice thing was you could fall asleep for 1/2 an hour and not miss a thing. He would still be describing some ridiculous detail that had absolutely nothing to do with the plot. I picked the book based on reviews and the authors popularity. The book promises a lot but never comes through. One redeeming quality was the narrator if not for him I would give it a one.

  • Sh-t My Dad Says

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"
    "Should of listened to the preview"
    Overall

    The content is humerous but I have two complaints.
    1. The book is more of a bulletpoint list of quotes than a story which I think I would have enjoyed more, seems somewhat lazy. Just listing things that someone else said is kinda lame.
    2. The narrators voice for Dad is way too over the top and cartoonish, it totally takes awY from the humor and personality, as well as bordering on unlistenable.

    Story

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Starts out strong- finishes slow and weak"
    Overall

    This story grabbed me right away and took off picking up steam the whole way until about 8 hours in, then everything changed. It slowed way down, the characters became thin and stereotypical. It became fairly predictable with chapters building up to suspenseful spots and you new that the next chapter was going to start off with something new and slow, leaving cliffhangers, that got old. Several major plot threads did not make sense. By the end of the book I was not very interested in the story just trying to finish it, maybe the next book will be better.
