    New York City's number-one detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem: the Son of Sam, the Werewolf of Wisteria, and the Mad Bomber are all back. The city has never been more terrified. The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his 10 adopted children, his grandfather, and their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine. Not only does it tear apart their vacation, it leaves the entire family open to attack.

    Overall

    I actually loved this book. It was a thriller from the start and if you were not familiar with Dt. Bennet it explained all about him again but not in a boring way. Every chapter kepted you wanting to listen to more. I would recommend this has a nice easy listen. Narration was exceptional as well.

    Couldn't even get all the way thru this one so can't tell you if it got better or not. It was so terrible I could only listen to about 1/2 of it. The reader was boring and monatone which only added to the dullness of this book. Story line right from the beginning reminded me of the old movie " the body snatchers". Don't waste your money on this one.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I did NOT enjoy this book at all. If I had to hear one more EMAIL To: Christian Gray From: Annastasia OMG It was enough to rip your hair out. I have heard that the other books are just as bad with the emails. One or two of them in a row would have been tolerable, but it just went on and on and on and the "Oh My" and "Later Babe". If it wasn't for the "other" graphics of the book I would have thought a 10 year old wrote it. For Anna to be so "unexperienced" she sure caught on quickly. Was not a good read and, not a good story and not a good performance.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Ok, I wanted to know what all they hype was about so I reluctantly downloaded "The Hunger Games". I went in with a bad attitude just knowing I would not enjoy but to my surprise I was glued to it from the first page. I have never found myself listening to a book so fast. It is a MUST for ALL ages. I am in my 60's and enjoyed every chapter. I thought it might be a "Harry Potter" type read but it was definetly not. GET IT, LISTEN TO IT, and ENJOY. Can't wait to download the next book. Did not want it to end!

    It's a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It's the one fear you cannot escape, no matter where you run...no matter where you hide. It's the fear of yourself. It's real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

    Finally a Koontz book that I couldn't put down. It grabbed your attention in the first chapter and it continued throughout the rest of the book. There were some "brief" periods of bordem but they were far and few and the rest of the book made up for it. Love it, but most importantly it was believable. "I'm Listening" - spooky. A Koontz must read for sure. Stephen Lang was a great narrator. I definetly would recommend.

    I have not read a bad book in a long time but this one was BAD and BORING. Glad it was only 7 hours long. In between each chapter the pause was so long I thought my Ipod had shut off. Don't waste your time with this one.

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    This book had entirely too many characters in it. Just when you got into one of the characters another one popped up. Book did not flow and was difficult to follow. Would not recommend it.

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Connie says: "One of the best Koontz Books!"
    "A little frustrating"
    Overall

    Intensity grabbed my attention immediately which is somethiing I love about any book. However, you wanted to shake Chyna throughout the book for beiing so stupid. I didn't like the dog chapter either and actually had to turn off the sound until that was complete. Good read though and would recommend it.
