    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    What did you like best about this story?

    A story within a story, both great.


    What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Although you do have the Master himself reading to you, Mr. King is not a narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved it! I will be listening/reading again.

    When Mehmet Oz has a patient whose life depends on losing weight, he calls on Joel Fuhrman, M.D. In Eat to Live: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss, Dr. Fuhrman offers his healthy, effective, and scientifically proven plan for shedding radical amounts of weight quickly, and keeping it off.

    What did you love best about Eat to Live?

    I love the fact that it was easy to understand and not full of big scientific lingo that the average person would not understand. Dr. F gives you the facts about the negative effects of fat, salt, sugar, dairy, meat and processed foods can have on our bodies. And shows us how a plant rich diet can result in improvements in weight and health.

    I will say that, if you are going to use his system, you should buy the hard copy of the book.


    What aspect of Joel Fuhrman’s performance would you have changed?

    Dr. Fuhram is a doctor, not a narrator. I did not expect King Lear...I enjoyed Dr. F's reading of his book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think when it hit me that drastic change calls for drastic measures and that if I wanted this, I would have to let things go (i.e. meat, dairy, bread, cookies...). And really, my health is more important that that! I am on week 2 of the 6 week program and I am down 15 pounds!

    They burned her home. They stole her brother and sister. But vengeance is following. Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she'll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she's not a woman to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old step father Lamb for company. But it turns out Lamb's buried a bloody past of his own. And out in the lawless Far Country the past never stays buried.

    Wow, Wow, Wow


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lam (Logen Nine Fingers), of course. But the new characters of Shy and Temple were great as well.


    What about Steven Pacey’s performance did you like?

    SP is really unbelievable! How he can make you feel the actions though his voice. Job well done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed in places at the reactions of my "old friends" and was sad to see them leave when the book ended. I will be listening to this again!


    Any additional comments?

    If you have not read/listened to the other Joe A.'s books in this series, please do before this one. I think you need the others to help you enjoy Red Country even more.

    Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her “Twinner” from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories....

    What did you love best about Black House?

    I loved the fact that we follow up on our hero Jack Sawyer. He is grown into an adult, but he is still the sensitive boy/man that you came to love in the Talisman. Also, if you are a true King fan, it does not hurt that we see a bit of the Dark Tower story as well.

    For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.

    Ethan M. says: "A good grim fantasy series, with caveats"
    "A Wonder!"

    What did you love best about The Way of Shadows?

    Wow, I had no idea that the life of an assasin could be so engrossing. A friend suggested the Shadow Trilogy and I am glad I listened. The first book takes a lot of getting used to, but is well worth it. I can hardly wait for Brent Weeks to create other Durzo Blint stories.
