    In a manner evoking Ian McEwan's Atonement and Nick Hornby's About a Boy, acclaimed author Joyce Maynard weaves a beautiful, poignant tale of love, sex, adolescence, and devastating treachery as seen through the eyes of a young teenage boy - and the man he later becomes - looking back at an unexpected encounter that begins one single, long, hot, life-altering weekend.

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Stephen King delivers a beautiful story of a sharp shooting anti hero with nothing to loose. Lots of gun taunting and blood splatter to keep the reader going. I loved it

    In a modern-day England where two warring factions of witches live among humans, 17-year-old Nathan is an abomination, the illegitimate son of the world's most powerful and violent witch.

Now Nathan has come into his own unique magical gift, and he's on the run - but the Hunters are close behind, and they will stop at nothing until they have captured Nathan and destroyed his father.

    In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and 16-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan's father is the world's most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his seventeenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch - or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust?

    This collection of short stories from the master of modern fiction is available only as an audiobook. In Blood and Smoke, Stephen King takes us inside a world of yearning and paranoia, isolation and addiction. It is the world of the smoker. In this audio-only collection, the now politically incorrect habit plays a key role in the fates of three different men.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    This hilarious book has been adapted especially for the audiobook edition so you’ll hear all of the same fun and humor from the printed version but you don’t have to make any decisions or jump around - just kick back, relax and listen. Plus, it features exclusive bonus audio of young Neil delivering an adorable speech! That’s audio you won’t hear in any version of this book other than the audiobook!

    Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. Day after day he stares at beautiful Christine, the girl he can never have, and dryly notes the small humiliations that come his way, until the day he is told about the "squip". A pill-sized supercomputer that you swallow, the squip is guaranteed to bring you whatever you most desire in life. By instructing him on everything from what to wear to how to talk and walk, the squip transforms Jeremy from a supergeek to one of the most popular guys in class.

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

    The book is about being true to oneself and trying so hard. That's why I would recommend this book.


    What other book might you compare Be More Chill to and why?

    The other normals, it's about a like-able outcast who can't make with no idea things would change if they just remained cam and collective.


    Have you listened to any of Jesse Eisenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just in his movies. I think it's very similar to his films.He's not a bad narrator.

    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.

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

    the book is intriguing from its first opening line to a satisfying climax with enough likeable characters to be rooted for even if you think they're not going to make it out alive. I would a friend should read. Stephen King is a true artist of making you sit back relax and enjoy what the hell is going on? Plus it rains body parts in the first chapter (spoiler alert)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the idea of a town run by a corrupt official and the followers. Realistic terror and tension. Really made the hair stand on end.


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

    I like the way he brought the characters to life. Every detail of the voice of 25 or more was there. I could picture the faces of the characters as they talked and their action and reactions.


    If you could rename Under the Dome, what would you call it?

    One Nation, Under Dome
