    Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs - a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of motel rooms...and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye - and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Odd Interlude to be better than the print version?

    I only do the audio so no comparison for me


    What about David Aaron Baker’s performance did you like?

    His voice was steady and easy to listen to

    Dr. Gary Chapman identifies five basic languages of love and then guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique languages of love. Learn to speak and understand your mate's love language, and in no time you will be able to effectively love and truly feel loved in return. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

    Would you listen to The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts again? Why?

    Yes the information is invaluable if you want to understand how different people feel loved and appreciated in life. Was not judgmental just very informative.


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

    I do not read well so listening is the best way for me to absorb the information.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great way for people to relate to those that are important to them but that approach the world from a different angle.

    When his sister tricks him into taking her guru on a trip to their childhood home, Otto Ringling, a confirmed skeptic, is not amused. Six days on the road with an enigmatic holy man who answers every question with a riddle is not what he'd planned. But in an effort to westernize his passenger---and amuse himself---he decides to show the monk some "American fun" along the way.

    Mary McCarthy says: "a thoughtful and often hilarious journey"

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Jean says: "Spies and a counter espionage"
    "Brings a real threat to the attention of all."

    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Engaging on many levels. Getting alittle out of the realm of possible on all the ways Jack Jr can be the new superhero.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept and the warning to all that evil is real and many nations are looking to hurt us at any cost


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He reads well and manages to give each character a unique persona


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No too long for one setting

    Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terrell McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor.

    It is in the top 10


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It engaged and did a good job of keeping you thinking. Liked how the plot developed and the ultimate ending was not obvious through out the book. Liked that the good guys won but that was not always the case.


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

    No first one


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

    Neither just enjoyed the plot
