    Roy's family moves a lot, so he's used to the new-kid drill. Florida bullies are pretty much like bullies everywhere. But Roy finds himself oddly indebted to the hulking Dana Matherson. If Dana hadn't been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have spotted the running boy. And the running boy is the first interesting thing Roy's seen in Florida.

    Native Texan says: "Clever and surprising!"
    "This is definately not Hiaasen's best!!!"
    Overall

    This story is boring.

    Julia Hamill has made a horrifying discovery on the grounds of her new home in rural Massachusetts: a skull buried in the rocky soil � human, female, and, according to the trained eye of Boston medical examiner Maura Isles, scarred with the unmistakable marks of murder.

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Back and forth through time"
    "Fantastic!!!"
    Overall

    I've listened to approximately 100 audible books and this one is in my top five recommendations. There are two stories in this book, one from long ago and one from the present. Yet both stories are closely (very) related. This book is one of only two in which I have listened to that catch me by surprise at the end. Please listen to this one.

    Realistic, sharp-edged, and complex, Unspeakable is Sandra Brown's best yet. A beautiful woman locked in silence, a man stalked by dark secrets he can no longer outrun, and an over-the-hill peace officer seeking redemption must defeat their own demons before a tumultuous confrontation with a diabolical killer.

    Cathryn says: "Unspeakable - unbelievable!"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    This book grabs you in the beginning and doesn't let go until the end.

    Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again. In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

    "Great Listen!!!"
    Overall

    Kinsey hasn't changed one bit. I can't wait to see if she gets a new car in "T" is for ??? Oh, I'm sorry. Did I leave you hanging? Then download this book and you hear what I'm talking about.

    Only one drawback for me in this listen: there were too many characters in this story.

    Based on true events, but unlike anything you've ever read before, #1 New York Times best-selling author Nelson DeMille has created what may be his finest work to date.

    Great narrator, great story, spectacular ending!!! I can usually surmise how the ending will play out, but this one caught me totally by surprise. It actually took my breath away.

    On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known, Molly and Neil Sloan awaken to the drumbeat of rain on their roof. It has haunted their sleep, invaded their dreams, and now they rise to find a luminous silvery downpour drenching their small California mountain town. A strange scent hangs faintly in the air, and the young couple cannot shake the sense of something wrong.

    Jaimie says: "And the point was...?"
    "He must be in a slump"
    Overall

    Mr. Koontz made me feel, with regard to his earlier writings, that the far fectched ideas, circumstances, situations he portrayed could really happen. Lately though, he has been lacking in his ability to keep my attention. I made it to part 5 and then turned it off and do not plan on finishing this book. Plus, I think Stephen King has already written a similar book called "Dream Catcher".

    In a future uncomfortably close to the present day, the apocalypse has surpassed all expectations. Hideous demons roam the streets in an orgy of terror, drawing pleasure from torturing humans as sadistically as possible. Ira, a young San Francisco artist, becomes involved with a strange group of scientists and philosophers desperately trying to end the bloody siege. But the most shocking revelation is yet to come.

    Laurie says: "Tedious and not what I expected"
    "Waste of time"
    Overall

    The description of the book does not reflect well in the story. It reads like an abridged version of a poorly told story.

    The reader of this book would be a great presenter/trainer for your next corporate meeting. This book would have been rated a 4+ if it had a reader from Koontz or Grisham.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "10 hours to climax"
    Overall

    This is an ok book. It takes about 10 hours to get into it. The reader does an excellent job with the accents. Extremely good job. The end of the story is great. There were several times when thought about turning off the Otis because the storyline was, in my opinion, without action considering the circumstances

    "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"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I've listened to many of Dean's books. He makes the "yea right, I don't think so" very believable. Not this time. Too far fetched and and the characters and their employment were very cheesy, yes, cheesy.
