    Years ago, they were all the best of friends. But as time passed and circumstances changed, they grew apart, became adults with families of their own, and began to forget about the past—and the terrible lie they all shared. But now Gordon, the youngest and wildest of the five, has died and the others are thrown together for the first time in years.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I listened to 10 hours of this book waiting for something to happen and nothing ever did. I quite listening so maybe something did happen but I felt cheated. I can't imagine what that title refers to. Most dangerous thing is that the characters were all crazy or dysfunctional.


    What was most disappointing about Laura Lippman’s story?

    Nothing ever happened.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Most Dangerous Thing?

    chapters 1-40

    All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence to come becomes terrifyingly clear. With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it's too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide.

    If you could sum up Zoo in three words, what would they be?

    It was so entertaining we listening to the whole book in one long session!
    The plot kept us on the edge of our seats and the reader did a great job with all the animal sounds. I was sorry it was over.


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

    yes,

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Would you listen to 14 again? Why?

    I found myself slowing down so I could finish it! After a 14 hour drive that is saying something! It was different than I thought it was going to be and I found it refreshing in it's unique story line.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 14?

    When they opened the door to room 14!


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

    His accents were great you would think you were listening to 10 different people.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The End of the World has been here all along, we just didn't know it.


    Any additional comments?

    excellent

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Would you listen to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter again? Why?

    I found it interesting. It kept me involved. I didn't think I would like it but the sample intrigued me enough for me to purchase it and I caught myself enjoying it.


    What other book might you compare Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to and why?

    I bought Bram's Stroker's Dracula and found it to be excellent. and James Patterson's Zoo was the best book on tape I have listened to in a very long time.


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

    True historical facts mixed in with the novel.
