    Dave was in first grade when his unstable alcoholic mother began attacking him. Until he was in fifth grade, she starved, beat, and psychologically ravaged her son. Eventually denying even his identity, Dave's mother called him an "it" instead of using his name. Relentlessly, she drove him to the brink of death before authorities finally stepped in. With faith and hope, Dave grew determined to survive. He also knew that he needed to share his story.

    I read this book before listening to it. I knew it would be good and it was. I recomend this.

    Nationally best-selling author Mary Monroe penned the widely acclaimed novels God Don't Like Ugly and God Still Don't Like Ugly. Red Light Wives is a sassy and scandalous novel of six women who engage in the world's oldest profession. They have something else in common too, their "manager," Clyde Brooks - a charismatic but hard man who fills many roles in each woman's life. But soon, an act of rebellion may change their relationship forever.

    This book was ok and kept me busy listening while I do my laundry and other things I do while listening to my books, the end was a little "meh" though.

    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    "Drawn out.."
    Overall

    I don't mind a long book, in fact I prefer them. But this one was so drawn out, I tried really hard but just could not get the energy up to finish this book...I could not take it, it was annoying at best.

    On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known, Molly and Neil Sloan awaken to the drumbeat of rain on their roof. It has haunted their sleep, invaded their dreams, and now they rise to find a luminous silvery downpour drenching their small California mountain town. A strange scent hangs faintly in the air, and the young couple cannot shake the sense of something wrong.

    Jaimie says: "And the point was...?"
    "Not as good as others."
    Overall

    I haven't finished this one because it is so drawn out on every single detail I got bored. Very drawn out, was hard to listen to for me.

    With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

    David says: "Excellent read!"
    "Very good read."
    Overall

    This was a wonderful book. If you like Koontz style this one is absolutely supurb. I liked it alot, and have read more than half of his books.

    In this lively audiobook, Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang dispel common myths about the brain and provide a comprehensive, useful overview of how it really works. In its pages, you'll discover how to cope with jet lag, how your brain affects your religion, and how men's and women's brains differ. With witty, accessible prose, this audiobook is great for quick reference or extended listening.

    Christy says: "Very informative"
    "Very informative"
    Overall

    This book may not be for some, it is very factual and probably needs a listener to be eager to learn about the brain. This was a fantastic book in my opinion. VERY informative, and touched on alot of mental illnesses as well as how every part of the brain works.

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere.

    Your Heart Belongs To Me, by Dean Koontz.
    This book was magnificent. Lots of twists and turns, the only negative thing I can say is the beginning was a little drawn out, but it makes sense, you have to learn the charactors. All in all absolutely wonderful.
