    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "One great book!"
    Overall

    Absolutely captivating. I have never despised characters more than I have the antagonists in this novel, and in the end... Great story, so-so narrator (exactly as the previous review says). Put it this way, I don't do long road trips, have work, school, 3 kids, and I still finished this book in 3.5 days.

    Fyodor Dostoyevsky is a titanic figure among the world's great authors, and The Brothers Karamazov is often hailed as his finest novel. A masterpiece on many levels, it transcends the boundaries of a gripping murder mystery to become a moving account of the battle between love and hate, faith and despair, compassion and cruelty, good and evil.

    Robert says: "Best "Karamazov" yet."
    "Cure for insomnia."

    Audible has a great return policy, so here is what I suggest. If you feel like getting this title do it, then go to Amazon and download a sample of this book for free (this will have the first 5 or so chapters). This will allow you to see the names and get a better idea of the characters involved (Russian names are hard for me to retain for some reason). At least that overcomes one obstacle. My biggest reason for not enjoying this book is the first two hours are painfully dull. It seems a great novel shouldn't require one to force themselves to stay awake for more than two hours in order to become acquainted with these initially uninteresting characters.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Jacqueline says: "Finish to Start Excellent is Novel This"
    "Painful to listen"

    What made the experience of listening to NOS4A2 the most enjoyable?

    Good book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Let me ask the producers a question; why this reader?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Mulgrew’s performances?

    I believe such a fate awaits me in hell, so I'm going all in for Jesus... In a word, no.


    If you could rename NOS4A2, what would you call it?

    Nosferatu


    Any additional comments?

    Kate Mulgrew makes every character sound like a 60 year old, washed up, drunk lounge singer. Something of the drunk Mrs. Krabappel.
