    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Story

    This is the kind of book that makes you really glad to finish it and go back "to the light", as Stephen himself puts it. The stories are great, the editing is great, and the narrator does a GREAT job. Mr Wasson is definitely one of the best!

    Grave Sight draws listeners into the intriguing world of Harper Connelly, a woman with a unique gift: she can "see" the deceased and how they died. A teenage girl from a small Ozarks town is missing and feared dead. Hired by local police, Harper locates the girl's body in a nearby forest. But there's more than one corpse in those woods, and the second one raises questions no one wants to ask.

    Story

    I love this author and thought this was an interesting story. However, I did not care for the flat monotone that this narrator used. Much worse, I can NOT STAND the "mouth noises" heard throughout. I have listened to plenty of books on which I could not hear swallowing, burping, and lip smacking. Therefore, I have to conclude that any audible noises are due to a lack of good editing. It is enough to ruin what could have been an enjoyable listen. Glad I only paid $4.95 for this....

    Fans of New York Times best seller The Nanny Diaries will rejoice in this wickedly hilarious novel, which acclaimed author Katharine Weber says is "much funnier and darker". Optioned for a major motion picture starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, The Ivy Chronicles skewers the twisted priorities of America's well-heeled elite.

    Vicki says: "Probably Better as an Audiobook then in Print"
    "Fun but editing sucks!"

    Story

    This is a light, enjoyable fluff of a story. However, the mouth noises (swallowing, lip smacking, and other various disgusting noises) drove me to distraction. I know it is normal for people to make such noises, but they are not audible on most books I have listened to. That leads me to conclude that this must be due to poor editing.

  • Dead as a Doornail: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery # 5

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won an Anthony Award for her one-of-a-kind Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. Sookie, a Louisiana cocktail waitress, skilled telepath, and friend to vampires, has a dedicated fan base that grows larger every day.

    Anne says: "Telepathic barmaid, shapeshifters, vampires!"
    "Great book - Horrible Narration"
    Overall

    I love this book and this series, but find this recording almost unlistenable because of Johanna Parker's reading. Her voice is flat and boring, but what drives me NUTS is the swallowing and other "mouth noises" that she constantly makes. Very irritating and unprofessional. I have listened to dozens of audio books and have never heard this before. I will not buy another Stackhouse book as long as it is read by this narrator.

  • Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry

    In their new book, Unfit for Command, John O'Neill and co-author Jerome Corsi bring together the words of more than 200 Navy veterans who served with John Kerry and who feel it their duty to tell why Kerry is unworthy of the presidency.

    Richard T. Betz says: "Unfit For Command"
    "The truth hurts"
    Overall

    While this is not a masterpiece of great writing, it is a compelling and timely subject.
    I ask any detractors: why would over 200 men make up such a story? If you answer that they are partsian and working as secret operatives for the GOP, then I would ask for your proof. There IS no proof that these men are lying, but there is proof that they are telling the truth.

    Elfrida Phipps tries to exorcise the pain of the past and find peace, taking refuge in a rambling Scottish house called Corrydale. Almost like a magnet, Corrydale attracts various waifs and strays, each of them escaping difficult personal pasts. As the holidays approach and the weather turns foul, it seems a perfect recipe for disaster.

    Sara says: "Atmospheric winter tale"
    "What a bore!"
    Overall

    This book isn't exactly fast paced on it's own, but when paired with the narrator's monotone, it is excrutiating! I was barely able to finish it. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if it had a differant narrator; my opinion definately seems to be the minority one!
