    On Christmas Eve in 1985, a hunter found a young boy's body along an icy corn field in Nebraska. The residents of Chester, Nebraska, buried him as "Little Boy Blue", unclaimed and unidentified-- until a phone call from Ohio two years later led authorities to Eli Stutzman, the boy's father.Eli Stutzman, the son of an Amish bishop, was by all appearances a dedicated farmer and family man in the country's strictest religious sect.

    What would have made Abandoned Prayers better?

    I spent years as a cop and don't consider myself a prude, but this book was one I could barely get through, more about his sex life than a crime book. I also listened to Starvation Heights by the same author and it was alright. This book was just way too much even for a person who spent a life time in law enforcement. I am amazed that anyone gave this book higher ratings.


    Has Abandoned Prayers turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No I would never let one book or even author sour me on other books or authors. However I do have another crime book in my library that tells a terrible story, (beyond bad), hopefully it will be told in such a manner to not totally turn off the listener.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was ok, it's just too bad what he had to work with.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Honestly... none that I can think of, it was just way to much after listening for just a short time I would want to turn it off. I kept listening thinking maybe it would get better, but no such luck.

    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 say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes but could have been better.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe


    Any additional comments?

    I Listened to the entire book, got invested in.all aspects of the story.. The narrator really made me hate the guys you were supposed to hate... But the ending was a total let down.Thirty some hours, and it was like king had to hurry out of the house so the ending was fast and furious. When I get invested in characters I want to see what happens to all of them by the time the story ends.I am really surprised since this is a Stephen King book.

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Alas, Babylon to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed this book whether you think it's realistic or not. The person reading did an excellent job and would look forward to listening to other books read by this guy. I have lot's audible books on my IPOD and tend to jump around a bit and may at any one time have 5 different books started at any one time, I didn't do that with this book. Once I started it, I stayed with it and really didn't want to put it down. I would highly recommend this book.


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

    I haven't but I will.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    .
