    Thomas Kilbride is a map-obsessed schizophrenic so affected that he rarely leaves the self-imposed bastion of his bedroom. But with a computer program called Whirl360.com, he travels the world while never so much as stepping out the door. He pores over and memorizes the streets of the world. He examines every address, as well as the people who are frozen in time on his computer screen. Then he sees something that anyone else might have stumbled upon - but has not - in a street view of downtown New York City: an image in a window. An image that looks like a woman being murdered.

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

    Yes, definitely. Loved the way everything came together


    What did you like best about this story?

    The last sentence.


    What didn’t you like about Ken Marks and Rick Holmes ’s performance?

    The performance was stilted, had a "reading" quality. I can't help thinking the book would have been a 5 overall with a different narrator.


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

    You think you know what's going on, but you don't!


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, really would have been better with different narration. There isn't even that much difference in the two voices that it helps the movement of the story - even distracting at times.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story
    If you could sum up Dead Ever After in three words, what would they be?

    Great Wrap Up!


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book brings back everyone (who hasn't already been killed) and wraps up their stories. This is what a last book of a series should look like - closure for everyone. I especially liked the very last Sookie words, but won't give them away.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She IS Sookie - the awesome twang is there along with a good job on all the other characters.


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

    Sookie always makes me laugh at some point; this was an extremely satisfying book.

    Story

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Almost anything else. The "hero" is a self-absorbed twit who sounds like a 13-year old with a first crush. He is a stalker, going so far as to stalk his object to her (supposed) husband's funeral. The story is so convoluted and stupid, it hurts. And the narration - If Scott Brick gets any sadder, he'll die, I'm sure of it., or I will of sheer boredom.


    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    The main character and the reader...and the fact that I wasted money on it. On a different note, I hated the fact that "Jake" must have had 3 or 4 concussions, yet never needed treatment, had no effects from TBI, just continued on because he's so tough. What a crock.


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    He is sooooo slow and soooo serious and every word is sooooo heavy with importance. Very distracting.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Six Years?

    ...most of them. This book didn't need to have been written, it adds nothing to my library anyway. Wish I could have a refund


    Any additional comments?

    Skip it, don't buy it, don't waste a credit. The Myron Bolitar/Mickey Bolitar reads are much better if you need to read this author.

    John Dortmunder doesn't like manual labor. So when he gets the offer of money to dig up a grave, he balks . . . then he wonders why Fitzroy Guilderpost, criminal mastermind, wants to pull a switcheroo of two 70-years-dead Indians.

    MidwestGeek says: "Twisted plot about twisted characters."
    "Narrator made too many repeats."

    Would you listen to Bad News again? Why?

    Once or twice, reading same line again is bearable, but many times - not okay. I will listen to it again, though, because it IS a Dortmunder novel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great story.
