    "The Breathing Method", from Stephen King's bestselling collecton Different Seasons, takes place in an exclusive gentlemen's club in New York, where no one pays any dues. Membership is based upon a telling of tales, and one nightmarish tale about a disgraced woman determined to give birth - not matter the consequences - pays for them all.

    "Classic King"
    Overall

    I love Stephen King's sick twisted humor so I really enjoyed this story. It is nice that it is a short story and resists the usual over-development of settings and characters that is King's defining characteristic! Don't get me wrong though, I LOVE most of his stories.

    "LOVE ZOMBIES ....but this one is just not good."
    Overall

    I personally found the narrator irritating. Maybe I have different taste than others, or maybe he really is irritating... that I couldn't tell you. It is poorly written/amateur. Not going to finish listening. Moving on to something els.

    Australia is one of the last places where life still exists after nuclear war starts in the Northern Hemisphere. A year on, an invisible cloak of radiation has spread almost completely around the world. Darwin is a ghost town, and radiation levels at Ayres Rock are increasing. An American nuclear-powered submarine has found its way to Australia where its captain has placed the boat under the command of the Australian Navy.

    Overall

    This book could send you right over the edge... WOW. What a hopeless story. Umm, I just couldn't understand why these people, given like a whole year to prepare, couldn't use all of the resources they had to build an underground shelter to house as many people as possible. They had plenty of time to come up with a decent system of underground living area that could have given them a fighting chance to survive as many years as possible trying to wait out the nuclear winter.

    Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

    Kevin says: "If you read this, you're hooked"
    "Favorite of the Dark Tower Series"
    Overall

    I have read the entire series. This is the first time listening to it. This is probably my favorite in the series. I really disliked the reader of book 1, but heard great things about Frank Muller. I dislike his interpretation of Roland, however the rest of the characters are incredible. It is so hard to believe that it is one man reading all of the characters, including females. He has great talent.

    Even four years after the sudden death of his wife, best selling novelist Mike Noonan can't stop grieving, nor can he return to his writing. He moves into his isolated house by the lake, which becomes the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed here - and what do they want of Mike Noonan?

    "Not So Great"
    Overall

    Big SK fan but I just couldn't get into this one. Too slow for too long... like 3/4 of the book and then once the pace picked up it just wasn't very interesting. I do enjoy, however, listening to the author of the book read the story. His reading is decent and not distracting.

    In the sequel to his best-selling World Made by Hand, James Howard Kunstler expands on his vision of a post-oil society with a new novel about an America in which the electricity has flickered off, the Internet is a distant memory, and the government is little more than a rumor. In the tiny hamlet of Union Grove, New York, travel is horse-drawn and farming is back at the center of life. But it’s no pastoral haven.

    "Takes A Wierd (in a bad way) Left Turn"
    Overall

    The first book was pretty entertaining. I am about 3/4 through the second book and there is no storyline, just lots of random scenerios. ALSO- there are numerous instances where it becomes rather explicit sexually. I have to wonder if the author discovered Viagra between the first and second book.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "EXCELLENT"
    Overall

    LOVE THE BOOK. CAN'T PUT IT DOWN. THE READER RAUL ESPARZA IS BY FAR THE MOST TALENTED READER I HAVE EVER HEARD. YOU WOULD THINK THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE READING.

    Leaving behind a world on the brink of destruction, man came to the red planet and found the Martians waiting, dreamlike. Seeking the promise of a new beginning, man brought with him his oldest fears and his deepest desires. Man conquered Mars - and in that instant, Mars conquered him. The strange new world with its ancient, dying race and vast, red-gold deserts cast a spell on him, settled into his dreams, and changed him forever.

    Overall

    I love Bradbury's sense of humor. I am not even sure that he intends to be comedic but he can't help it.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    "If you like zombies then you will love this book"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this novel. I LOVE books and movies about the end of the world so if you DON'T then I am not the person to ask... Zombies are one of my favorite ways to end it. The story moves along at a good pace. It is easy reading...just the right amount of details. Not going to go down in history as a classic but....can't wait to read book 2.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    "Great Story"
    Overall

    Really pleasant reading. Not nearly as gruesome and profane as many of his stories. Not particularly fast paced or "thrilling" but an enjoyable story nonetheless.
