This is my 10th year with Audible! Seems like just yesterday I started listening to books! I wouldn't "read" any other way!

    Would you listen to Dexter by Design again? Why?

    Like every story starring DEXTER the DARK Knight, Lindsay has again put Dexter in new and exciting macabre situations. I love the fact that Dexter has


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dexter by Design?

    Rita the Righteous appears out of NOWHERE...


    What about Nick Landrum’s performance did you like?

    This is the only drawback...a personal problem I HAVE...I love to listen to Scott B or Will P...but Nick L does a good job.


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

    I wouldn't change the title in any way.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the first 4 books and have loved each one. I am presently reading Dexter is Delicious, the 5th book, about 1/2 way through it and am still trying to figure out how Debra is going to finally realize what Dexter really is...Is the TV show going to drive a 6th book? Or is it the other way around? Lindsay??????

    Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

    I have loved the Dexter series and was expecting Dexter to go out with a BIG BANG. I have to believe we haven't seen the end of Dexter....Dexter will begin the Dexter Code for Cody and Aster. What a great new direction for a new series to move. How about it?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    If you could sum up The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in three words, what would they be?

    Unconventional Mystery Heroine


    What other book might you compare The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to and why?

    If you are looking for female lead characters, Ladies Detective Agency is the closest I have read myself, and the LDA is not near as engrossing.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Excellent presentation. Vance keeps the reader engaged thru his voice inflections and ability to help the reader maintain a grasp of the many character's names and their part in the 3 stories through his many characters vocal nuances.


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

    The 1st has already been released and was done very well, the scriptwriters and director kept very close to the novel. I can't wait to see the following movie/movies. Almost every of my friends and acquaintances that have seen the 1st movie had great things to say about the movie and story in general.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't already seen the movie, read/listen to the 1st book before you see it. (I suggest you read/listen to all 3 books before you see the movie). If you have already seen the 1st movie, read/listen to the 1st book anyway, you always get more out of a story vs. a movie. I only listen to books for pleasure instead of reading for pleasure so if your a reader, get the books and enjoy! If you are a listener, thanks Audible for bringing the books to us in such a timely manner!

    Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals.

    Which character – as performed by Jeff Lindsay – was your favorite?

  • The Bodies Left Behind

    The Bodies Left Behind is an epic cat-and-mouse chase, told nearly in real-time, and is filled with Deaver's patented twists and turns, where nothing is what it seems, and death lingers just around the next curve on a deserted path deep in the midnight forest.

    Deb says: "very disapointing"
    "Bodies..Bodies..Everywhere!!!"
    Overall

    Deaver has provided another fantastic listen as he draws the listen into the macabre story of treachery and deceit...with a few dysfunctionalities of family's issues thrown in for good measure...some things jsut aren't what they seem...and the question of "whodunnit" looks like many characters could be the real culprit... Great listen and is even better when you have the time to listen in large chunks of time...smaller chunks of time will make you want to go back to review before you move forward.

    Now in theaters, a re-release of the classic horror flick The Exorcist is promising to be scarier than ever. Restored by the film's director, William Friedkin, the new cut includes a full reel of previously unreleased footage, eliminated before the film's first release. To prepare for the frightening film, listen to the audiobook version, read by the author.

    For you lovers of cruelty...don't forget to read LEGION

    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    Danielle says: "Grisham's Finest"
    "Back in the Saddle Again..."
    Overall

    What a wonderful prequel to a Time to Kill.....Grisham has finally written a book that is up to par with Time and The Firm. If you don't know either of these 2 Grisham novels, take time to listen to Time before you listen to Juror and then by all means read The Firm. Grisham fans will not be disappointed in The Last Juror!

    He is a man with an unknown past and an uncertain future. A man dragged from the sea riddled with bullets, his face altered by plastic surgery - a man bearing the dubious identity of Jason Bourne. Now he is running for his life, the target of professional assassins, at the center of a maddening, deadly puzzle. Who is Jason Bourne? Listen to the sample below to hear Ludlum explain how an event in his life gave him the idea for The Bourne Identity.

    Overall

    It's always unfortunate when someone tries to abridge a story considering the artist would have shortened the story if he/she had had less to say than what the unabridged story tells. Alas our society is the culprit.....fast and dirty....no matter much is lost in the abridgement. If that's how you feel, DON'T BOTHER LISTENING. I rarely listen to abridgements and this one has reminded why that is so. This one has destroyed what was a great story, I remeber reading it years ago and couldn't set it down, this abridgement made me turn it off!
