    Story

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Slow"
    Overall

    In all my years on audible this was by far the slowest book I have ever listened to. I am a big fan of the vampire genre so that made this even more of a disappointment. I felt like I was back in school and the prof was trying to ram a boring lesson down my throat.

    Story

    In Bradbury's unforgettable modern Gothic masterpiece, Something Wicked This Way Comes, something evil arrives in a small Midwestern town on the crest of the wind one autumn night. A "dark carnival" with frightening attractions and supernatural characters sets up stakes. It is up to two 13-year-old boys, James Nightshade and William Holloway, to figure out a way to save the souls of the town.

    Sarah says: "Ageless"
    "slow, not believable"
    Overall

    To use some ages from another reviewer of this book, I think that this book was meant for either 10 year olds or 80 year olds, but nothing in between. It is very evident that this book was written in 1962.

    The Wheel of Time returns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Karl Knight says: "Top Quality Audio Entertainment"
    "Slow, slow, slow......"
    Overall


    I read and enjoyed the first 2 books of the series and was looking forward to reading them all. After this one, I am stopping. This book could not have been any slower. It was like listening to a 100 year old man tell a story, going off on countless tangents that serve no purpose to the main story. Every time they enter a town do we really need to know what colour their shoes, socks, hats, and undergarments are? Dow we really care what kind of exports they have and why their fishery dried up 80 years ago? I kept waiting for these pointless observations to have meaning later and they did not. This story was 4 hours of average content surrounded by over 20 hours of filler. Very disappointing.

  • Song of Susannah: The Dark Tower VI

    The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

    Daniel F. Webster says: "Undoing the writer's block!"
    "Unneccessary filler"
    Overall


    I have read every book in the series and am currently on the last one, but this one was BY FAR the worst. It was so unneccessary. By the end I felt like King was just putting in words to fill the pages to make a sale on another book. (that he knows anyone reading the series would have to buy) Don't expect ANY action in this ENTIRE book, very slow and absolutely meaningless.

    A blisteringly paced tale of one family's struggle to stay together in the face of the most terrifying psychotic killer to haunt a novel in some time, Mr. Murder is one of Dean Koontz's most harrowing, thought-provoking stories.

    Salty says: "Enjoy Dean's visual imagination"
    "Best I've ever read"
    Overall

    This book was action from beginning to end it was by far the best book I've EVER listened to. It has spoiled me for all other books.
