    How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.

    I started this series in print years ago and love it!! The Audible version does not disappoint. Odd Thomas is a wonderful character to follow through his adventures. The narrator does an amazing job. Its a great thriller with surprising laugh out loud humor! The whole series is a must!

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Story

    Pillars of The Earth, was an amazing rich journey in history! I hoped, cried, and laughed my way through this story.
    The characters and setting are so real, you could almost touch them.
    John Lee is a wonderful narrator and truly brings the story to life.
    Though its quite long its never slow. The constant struggle and addaptation of the characters kept me enthralled till the end. I finished feeling that I wanted more. Definitely a must listen!

    Ok this book was recommended to me because I love the Outlander series, and it doesn't hold a candle. That said, this book was fun to say the least. If you're looking for substance go elsewhere, but if you like a steamy romance you won't be dissapointed. yummy!!

  • Fat Is the New 30: The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Coping with (the Crappy Parts of) Life

    The Sweet Potato Queens are back and bawdier than ever in Southern belle extraordinaire Jill Conner Browne’s ninth edition of the hysterical series. Having experienced pretty much ALL of the crappy parts of life, Browne feels it is her duty to render whatever assistance she can to her fellow sufferers - and she does so in her own inimitable fashion.

    Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them - or make fun OF them.

    Story

    Enough already!! Ok the first two in the series had me, and then book 3. Same great story but waiting and waiting then nothing!! It seems the author didn't have a plan. It gets less exciting as the series goes on. After completing book three I was disappointed and frustrated, wishing I had never started the series in the first place.

    In Smoke and Mirrors, Gaiman's imagination and supreme artistry transform a mundane world into a place of terrible wonders - where an old woman can purchase the Holy Grail at a thrift store, where assassins advertise their services in the Yellow Pages under "Pest Control," and where a frightened young boy must barter for his life with a mean-spirited troll living beneath a bridge by the railroad tracks.

    Story

    Neil Gaiman's stories are always charming, witty and entertaining. As a narrator he is fantastic!
    I'm not big on short stories, and even one of my favorite authors couldn't change that for me. If you're a Gaiman fan and don't mind shorts this would be a great collection. I'll probably stick to the longer stories.

    Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

    Story

    On a dark and stormy night, a logic defying group of people investigate and old house. Though it was the "same old story" told many diffrent ways, The Supernaturals was good and creepy. Not overly creative, I never found myself trying to guesse what happens next. I enjoyed the story and the narration, but wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it to a friend.

    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    I would not consider The Pines a must listen, but it was entertaining. It was surprising and unpredictable. If you're looking for a light but thrilling story its perfect. The narration was good and the plot was faster paced.
