    This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

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

    I enjoyed the story very much, but the narration is just about the worst I've heard. As much as I hate to say it, I wouldn't recommend the audio version of this book to anyone.


    What didn’t you like about Minnie Goode’s performance?

    The general telling of the story and her female voices are OK, tho some were over done, but the male and child voices are awful. They sounded like over acted bad cartoon characters. And just because the book says someone is whispering, doesn't mean you really need to whisper, just lower your voice a bit during that part! I think she has talent, but needs lots of work. She would do well to listen to some great narrators and see how they handle character voices.

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    "Most Excellent"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. I am a fan of Stephen King, and bought this book based on that (I know, shallow, but it worked this time). I thought the story was very original and very scary, I enjoyed the characters, even the bad ones were very good in that they seemed to me to be true to themselves. I hope this is the beginning of a long line of books from Mr Hill. I will be looking for his work in the future.

    Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.

    colleen says: "Another Pine Cove winner"
    "Hilarious Adult Christmas Story"
    Overall

    This is definately a story for adults, and is one of the funniest books I have listened to yet. I could picture each character and the fixes they found themselves in. The narrator was well chosen and added alot to the enjoyment of this book. I hope Audible is able to publish more of Christopher Moore's works, I would love to hear them.
