    You can't say this often, almost never, but I thought the movie was way better.

    WOW!! These two guys recreated the vampire like no other. This book has it all! …Steve King’s Salem’s Lot was an excellent book and still one of my favorite classic vamp tales but The Strain nudges King off of the top of my list! …and if these books were written before Bram Stoker's Vampire, the stereotypical white faced, long toothed, black cape wearing fellow would have never even made it to the main stream!! Bravo!! DO NOT PASS THIS BOOK BY! ....PS. the narrator ISN'T that bad. Ok, so his character distinction isn't the best on Audible but he still has a pleasant reading voice and he is more than bearable. Do not let the bad review’s of the reading scare you off. …the vamp's might though….

    The action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches a creative and daring operation that leaves a radioactive tomb in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States and demands retribution.

    Warren says: "Best book I've listened to this year"
    "not the Mich I’ve come to love reading about"
    Overall

    I can see the movie production now…. “lights! Camera! …..What action???” I think it was over 7 hours in before good old Mich even got just a little violent. What the…. I mean come on Mich… Kick some butt why don’t ya. At least break somebody’s thumb or something! Definitely not as much action as other Mich Rapp books. Sorry Vince but I have to give this one two broken thumbs down.

    It was a good story though. just not the Mich I’ve come to love reading about.

  • World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

    Story
    (3639)

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Steve says: "Good but Too Short!"
    "I don't get what the other reviewers were reading"
    Overall

    The book was good and well written but not what I expected. To me, there isn’t anything scary listening to someone give a recount about their experiences with the zombies. I guess I prefer to be in the action instead of hearing 6 hours worth of interviews with the survivors. The author should have written their accounts as flashbacks instead. Now that I could recommend but if your looking for blood, guts and gore; this ain’t the ticket.

    In I Am Legend, a plague has decimated the world, and those unfortunate enough to survive are transformed into blood-thirsty creatures of the night. Robert Neville is the last living man on earth. Everyone else has become a vampire, and they are all hungry for Neville's blood. By day, he stalks the sleeping undead, by night, he barricades himself in his home and prays for the dawn.

    Overall

    This is the 1st time that I liked the movie more than the book. Don't get me wrong, the book was realy good. Too short though. I wanted more. I liked the movie and was hoping that the book would sort of follow the same story line but it didn't and that was ok when I finished.

    A fresh new look into the world of the walking dead!

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    Lesley says: "Yikes! Five stars for fright"
    "Great book Joe!"
    Overall

    This was one of the best ghost stories I've ever read! I was into this book from the very start! Steven King... make room...
