    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    What made the experience of listening to The Racketeer the most enjoyable?

    I love the work of John Grisham


    What did you like best about this story?

    Chapter 1 to 27 is a perfect Grisham..but then ....


    Which character – as performed by J.D. Jackson – was your favorite?

    Mr. jackson did a overall very good job, his up there among the best


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

    It made me annoyed, because after chap 27 i just did not know what way the storry
    took,, it seemed like a whole new story until it opened up round chap 40 something
    maybe its just me, but i like to know where the story goes. its most irritating to wonder..
    What is this..where does this fit in the story..
    But at the end it all falls into place ,,and its a good story..

    A major mix-up at Blandings Castle, in which Galahad introduces yet another imposter to Lord Emsworth's residence and the Empress of Blandings gets sloshed in her sty. Formidable comic characters designed to interrupt Lord Emsworth's peace include his overbearing sister Lady Hermione Wedge who comes complete her own meddling secretary, and Dame Daphne Winkworth who has her eye on becoming the next Countess. As ever the stage is set for Gally to try and restore order to the ensuing chaos!

    A new store has opened in the town of Castle Rock, Maine. It has whatever your heart desires...if you're willing to pay the price. In this chilling novel by one of the most potent imaginations of our time, evil is on a shopping spree and out to scare you witless. Presented unabridged and read by the author.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    A very good buy, a real page turner, in spite of 25+ hours, you are seldom bored
    For me it took about 15 minutes to get real hooked.
    The fantastic is that althow i have read about everything Mr. king has written, this
    story is something quite new,
    Dont hesitate just buy it if you like the a bit weird stuff Stephen King writes.
    Its also rather ok to hear his a bit nagging voice narrate this special story..

    happy listening

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Dennis Boutsikaris.

    Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

    A User says: "Reality, always more interesting than fiction."
    "For especially interested.."
    Overall

    And for the rest of us Boooring.. and without a professional and good reader
    this is not bearable for many hours..
