    Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking? #1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy. #2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy. So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Crazy #2?Newly expanded, Serial Uncut is more horrific than ever, so proceed at your own risk. If you suffer from anxiety attacks, nervous disorders, insomnia, nightmares or night terrors, heart palpitations, stomach problems, or are of an overly sensitive nature, you should listen to something else.

    What would have made Serial Uncut better?

    The authors needed to explore the past motivations of the various killers.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Certainly. Their style is fine. The direction of the short story is not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    They did not. It was well read.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes. The interactions between the serial killers had great potential and has been explored by the likes of James Patterson. The potential was not realized.

    Were the alien and his robot here to help or hinder humankind? Find out the surprising answer in the original story that inspired the classic 1951 science-fiction movie The Day the Earth Stood Still. This is a must-read for any science-fiction lover, for, as the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction says, "the film lost the story's ironic ending." Now listeners can discover first-hand what Hollywood left out in this best-known novella of the legendary 1930s idea man, Harry Bates.

    The robot. It is an icon in the genre.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Weiner – was your favorite?

    The robot. It is an icon in the genre.

    Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, avid collector, is losing his fight against cancer. With weeks to live, a package arrives at the door of his hillside mansion—an artifact he paid millions for…a hominoid skull with elongated teeth, discovered in a farmer’s field in the Romanian countryside. With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull’s razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.

    Brenda says: "Exactly what I expected"

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    None. I have always had an interest in this type of novel.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    He has a good start. But it does not take off from the beginning.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    The representations of the characters were fine. It is the characters and storyline that I found weak.
