  • Dolores Claiborne

    (279)

    Dolores Claiborne's elderly employer dies suddenly, apparently from falling down a flight of stairs. This tragedy sparks memories of the day Dolores' husband died...the day of the total eclipse. Suspected by police and townspeople alike, she delivers a story of a disintegrating marriage, and the breaking point reached by a docile woman.

    Sandra M Irwin says: "A Great Listen!"
    "Old spitfire"
    Overall

    It took me back when I was younger, how things were then. Nothing like a tough old gal that tries to do right, even if there is death involved. Frances Sternahagen does an excellent job of narration.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Great information, I use this because I run a shop and just to watch the body language has helped me nab some shoplifters. Also helps when working with youth. I have listened to this 3 times and will again,

    Here is the saga of a people who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear; how they lived; the animals they hunted; the great totems they revered. But mostly it is the story of Ayla, the girl they found and raised, who was not like them. To the Clan, her fair looks make her different - ugly.

    The future is here...in an adventure of cosmic dimension. In December, 1999, a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who - or what - is out there? In Cosmos, Carl Sagan explained the universe. In Contact, he predicts its future - and our own.

    What disappointed you about Contact?

    The whole story, did not even finish it, (first for audible that I did not finish) It was so anti-God, that it seemed to be the main point of the audio. Made me sad, because the movie was awesome.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Contact?

    The continuous negativity about God. Not that I cared one way or the other what the author believes but this crossed the line because it was so continuous, not so much about life elsewhere.

    Fiver could sense danger. Something terrible was going to happen to the warren; he felt sure of it. They had to leave immediately. So begins a long and perilous journey of survival for a small band of rabbits. As the rabbits skirt danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band, its humorous characters, and its compelling culture, complete with its own folk history and mythos.

    (1632)

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

    Would you listen to The Sociopath Next Door again? Why?

    oh yes, much helpful information


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Thought provoking since this illness runs in my family, explains much, not just in family but those who can do what they do (with no remorse) in the business world.

    What did you love best about Joyland?

    The story, Kings style pulls you in with typical scenarios from everyday life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters were good, a few hinky dye dye.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance was excellent, clear, and I cried a few times because it was convincing.


    Any additional comments?

    Kings Story without hardly any scary or gory stuff. A good story especially if you have or just had a carnival in town.

    At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It’s the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who’s supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play “paratroopers over the side”. Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his 10th birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out.

    In the third volume of The Dark Tower, Roland, the last gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower that haunts his dreams and nightmares. But he is no longer alone. He has trained Eddie and Susannah, who entered Mid-World from their separate whens in New York City in The Drawing of the Three, in the old ways of the gunslingers. But their ka-tet is not yet complete.

    Kristin says: "A reader for the ages!"
    "Dark Tower series-Wastelands"
    Overall

    As the Dark Tower series, this is wonderful, grabs a hold of you and holding on to what maybe next. (It's never what you think) Frank Muller is the best voices.
