    Story

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Slow Listen"
    Overall

    Over 15 hours of listening before Dracula actually enters the novel. This book had the potential for greatness, but too little Dracula, and way too late.

    Demons in the Spring is a collection of 20 short stories by Joe Meno, author of the smash hits The Boy Detective Fails and Hairstyles of the Damned. In these stories, oddly modern moments occur in the most familiar of public places.

    Chris says: "Weird...very weird!"
    "A Little too creepy"
    Overall

    Agreeing with everyone else. To weird and depressing. Gave up after 4 stories.

    Story
    (244)

    An enzyme that will dramatically prolong life has been discovered 2,000 feet down in the North Atlantic, in an area known as "Lost City". But why are the people attempting to harvest it getting killed? Why are the scientists in a remote Greek laboratory disappearing one by one? To Kurt Austin, leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team, and his colleague Joe Zavala, it's clear they have their work cut out for them, but it may be even bigger than they think.

    Snoodely says: "Guilty pleasure"
    "Predictable"
    Overall

    Brutally Predictable, not a single twist in the entire novel. Bad even for this author.

    Story
    (563)

    This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

    Carl says: "definitive version, hasn't aged too badly"
    "Slow"
    Overall

    I gave this book three and a half hours to go somewhere. Unfortunately it was more mundane than the traffic I sit in. Don't get me wrong, I'm open minded, but it just didn't hold my attention. I can appreciate the authors abilities, but it needs to move quicker.
