    Benjamin Button was literally born an old man. He lived a backwards life, for his body grew younger as the years passed him by. Come and listen to the original, unabridged story by F. Scott Fitzgerald which inspired the movie.

    Story
    Where does The Curious Case of Benjamin Button rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's smack right in the middle of all I've listened to so far.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was original, very different and interesting. Since I had seen the movie I was interested in seeing how close the movie and story were. Miles apart! Movie nothing like the story it is based on.


    What does B. J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made the pages breathe and come to life. A little corny, but a good representation of the area.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wasn't expecting Ben to be such a jerk. When his wife started aging he lost all interest in her. Being older was the very thing that in the beginning drew her to him.


    Any additional comments?

    The story and the narration are enjoyable and since it is short and inexpensive you could do worse.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King

    Story
    (14164)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Narrator's joy!!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. It is a story with a considerable number of twists and turns to make it enjoyable to listen to all the way to the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    George Amberson. The story is told with him as the center support to everything. He was the kind of person you would hope you would be given the situations he was placed in throughout the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the dance scenes and the time spent with the boys and girls at the high school. I truly wish that the youth of today was more like back then.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Time is like a big machine with big jagged teeth.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the narration by Craig Wasson. I would hope that everyone listening to this Stephen King novel recognized the impersonations Mr. Wasson was using to create some of the characters. I at least noticed "John Wayne" and Jimmy Stewart" as a couple of them.

  • False Memory

    Story
    (223)

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    If you could sum up False Memory in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyed it thoroughly


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dusty. A good man all around that kept his eyes open to things that didn't add up. He really had a big heart for friends and family.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Lang – was your favorite?

    Marty


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Are you sure you want someone to get inside your head?


    Any additional comments?

    Dean Koontz really knows how to write a good thriller. Usually he writes them extremely well all the way through, but this one he seemed to run out of steam at the end. It was the ending of this story that kept it from getting a five star rating. He isn't, by any means, the only author that can damage a great story by making it come to an abrupt ending. So as to not ruin this one by writing something that might be a spoiler I leave it without saying anymore. I continue to listen to and read as well Dean Koontz novels on a regular basis. He doesn’t disappoint me very often.
