    Story

    King is great, and the Shawshank Redemption is a quick way to prove it. Great read and if you have seen the movie, the book (as usual) is so much better. The depth of feeling in the characters is wonderful.

    This is a nice educational story that takes the reader through the biblical 1000 year earthly kingdom, but, it was slow and ended someone suddenly.

    Story
    (16138)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    A riveting story of what if. The possibilities of time travel and the effect on history is really compelling and King does an amazing job in pulling those possibilities out is a realistic way. Crain Wasson does an amazing job in narrating the book, it felt like a fireside conversation with a good friend. Little disappointed in the ending, but overall this was a fantastic journey well worth taking.

    Story

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Story

    The best thing I can say is listening to the audio book made me scared. I was listening to this book while on a trip to Salt Lake City, during the first part of the book, I was terrified when I walked by people and they were coughing. An amazing story that you will get completely sucked into. Once you start, you may as well get some coffee, because you will not want to stop until it is over. Great, Great, Great story.

  • Of Mice and Men

    Story
    (708)

    While the powerlessness of the laboring class is a recurring theme in Steinbeck’s work of the late 1930s, he narrowed his focus when composing Of Mice and Men (1937), creating an intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness. But though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal: a friendship and shared dream that make an individual’s existence meaningful.

    Story

    Steinbeck has a way off pulling you back in time with his story. A very valuable life journey and a great listen. Well worth your time.
