    For years, best friends Sarah and Jennifer kept what they called the "Never List" - a list of actions to be avoided. But one night, against their instincts, they accept a cab ride with grave consequences. For the next three years, they are held captive with two other girls in a dungeon-like cellar by a connoisseur of sadism. 10 years later, at 31, Sarah is still struggling to resume a normal life, unable to come to grips with the fact that Jennifer didn't make it out of that cellar. Now, her abductor is up for parole and Sarah can no longer ignore the twisted letters he sends from jail.

    This story started out very good. It was a good idea. But the story led up to a disappointing unbelievable ending.

    On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.

    Story

    What a strange, absolutely mesmerizing read! Like other reviewers noted, I was a little confused at times, but Ms Atkinson really handled the reincarnation aspect in a unique way. But it was Fenella Woolgar's narration that really captured my attention. I don't think I would have enjoyed the book as much just reading it. She brought it all to life for me.

    Story

    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.

    Story

    I was somewhat skeptical whether I would like this book. It seemed much too long. But I loved it! I cried when I was done. I don't know why I would ever doubt Mr. King. He is one of the best writers in the world. I fell in love with all of his characters. Take the time to listen to this. You will not be disappointed.

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    This was a fast-paced, original story. I was completely surprised by the story, in a good way. Thoroughly enjoyed.
