  • State of Fear

    (493)

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    "Good Story! You'll enjoy it!"
    Overall

    If you can ignore the other reviews that seem to worried about where this book falls in the political spectrum, then you will enjoy it tremendously. I always look for one thing: a story to keep me interested and listening, something that I won't drift off and realize that I have no idea where the narrator is. Although it starts a little slow, with perhaps a little too much detail added in, all in all the story - again I emphasize that point - is a good one.

  • Cell: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 36 mins)
    • By Stephen King
    • Narrated By Campbell Scott

    Story
    (1076)

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    "good book, bad narrator"
    Overall

    The story is good, and I think King still has it. However, the narrator is terrible. I mean, really, really terrible. I tried starting this over four times before just picking up the book and reading it... because I drifted off so many times listening!

    I am a King fan, but I just can't recommend this audio book because of the monotone narration. Some narrators have a knack - you know, you literally forget that only one person is reading... unfortunately that wasn't the case here.

    As for the story, I thought it was very good. Yes, it resembles other King stories, but hey, King likes the 'strangers get together and fight evil' theme.

    Read the book, skip the audio on this one.
