  • A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America - majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way - and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

    colleen says: "What a treat"
    "Anyone who loves the backcountry will enjoy this."

    Would you listen to A Walk in the Woods again? Why?

    Yes, A Walk in the Woods brought back so many memories of hiking and camping the mountains.
    Offering a much needed escape from a busy,confusing world.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Walk in the Woods?

    The section devoted to the author's first trip to the outfitters reminded me of the excitement and utter confusion that go with a first time backcountry adventure.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed lot.

    Agent Pendergast has become one of crime fiction's most endearing characters. His greatest enemy is one who has stalked him all of his life, his cunning and diabolical brother Diogenes. And Diogenes has thrown down the gauntlet. Now, several of the people closest to Pendergast are viciously murdered, and Pendergast is framed for the deeds. On the run from federal authorities, with only the help of his old friend NYPD Lieutenant Vincent D'Agosta, Pendergast must stop his brother.

    M. M. Robinson says: "Excellent read/listen!"
    "Pendergast novels always entertaining"

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

    Yes. I am a really huge fan of the Preston,Child team.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    While I enjoy Scott Brick's performance I am partial to Rene Auberjonois's narration a little more.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    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"
    "Love the use of history."

    What made the experience of listening to 11-22-63 the most enjoyable?

    I love the use of historical events.
    This one made it difficult to hit the pause button.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I took my wife and son to San antonio on vacation and on our last day in Texas drove up to Dallas and spent the day. the entire time bits of the novel kept playing over in my mind.
