    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    After 27 years of marriage and three children, Anna Oh - wife, mother, outsider artist - has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her success. They plan to wed in the Oh family’s hometown of Three Rivers in Connecticut. But the wedding provokes some very mixed reactions and opens a Pandora’s Box of toxic secrets - dark and painful truths that have festered below the surface of the Ohs' lives.

    Where does We Are Water rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    We are Water is among the most thought provoking of the audiobooks that I have listened to.


    What other book might you compare We Are Water to and why?

    It is difficult to compare We Are Water to many other books because of the unique organization of the story and the narration.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Wally Lamb performing the role of Orion Oh offered tremendous insight into all of the author's feelings about the characters he had created. I loved the author's comments at the end of the book.


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

    Laughed and cried.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15256)

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Epic Time Travels"

    One of the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The past is obdurate. It doesn't want to change.


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

    The ability to let us feel the characters in they story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
