    Twenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. Two were found murdered, and the others were never seen again. Four families had their lives changed forever. Now, two decades later, they are about to change again.

    Overall

    essential?! yikes.

    the story has several problems...none of them solvable. the dialogue is so bad that i found myself actually embarrased to be listening to it.

    plus,the narration is awful.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "very surprised"
    Overall

    not my usual kind of book, but i very much enjoyed it. the narration is superb....possibly the best i've ever heard. this audio book is well worth the credits.

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    Ed says: "Comic book tough guy"
    "not good"
    Overall

    jack reacher is cool, i get it. lee child's reminds you of it every 5 minutes. it got to be a bit campy with all the quiet tough guy cliches.

    also, the story is pretty far fetched. i do not understand this writers appeal.

    It is a society that is, officially, a paradise. Superior to the decadent West, Stalin's Soviet Union is a haven for its citizens, providing for all of their needs: education, health care, security. In exchange, all that is required is their hard work, and their loyalty and faith to the Soviet State. But now a murderer is on the loose.

    Melvin says: "Terror from all sides."
    "excellent"
    Overall

    great story, great characters, great reader

    It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

    KSK says: "Listen to "Say Goodbye" first"
    "enjoyable"
    Overall

    the story has its problems, but you grow to like the characters so much that it doesn't matter. oh, and the reader is fantastic. all in all, a fun read...

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "tedious"
    Overall

    the previous book "the girl with dragon tattoo" started off slow and laborious but eventually picked up speed and delivered a great story. this book, however, stayed slow and laborious. larsson inundates the reader with massive amounts of unnecessary details. at times, it bordered on the ridiculous.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Glenda Jeffers says: "Riveting but brutal"
    "enjoyable listen"
    Overall

    good story, great characters, and some excellent dialogue. the main character's dark sense of humor was delivered spot on by the reader.
