    Typical Jackie Collins, a little smutty and something you'll want to listen to for fun and entertainment, not really a thinking persons book.

    This book was really boring, I thought about shutting it off half was through but thought it might get better. The last 10 minutes was great. The narrators for 2 of the characters was good, the author for the other 2 characters made we want to fall asleep while I was driving.

    Warning: You may have a huge, invisible spider living in your skull. This is not a metaphor. You will dismiss this as ridiculous fearmongering. Dismissing things as ridiculous fearmongering is, in fact, the first symptom of parasitic spider infection - the creature secretes a chemical into the brain to stimulate skepticism, in order to prevent you from seeking a cure. That’s just as well, since the “cure” involves learning what a chain saw tastes like. You can’t feel the spider, because it controls your nerve endings.

    This book was entertaining, I like the characters and read the first book. This one was a little long, but I LOVE Nick Podehl the narrator. He's my favorite and doesn't dissapoint on this book either.

    Kimberlee Schaffer may be drop-dead gorgeous...but she also dropped dead last year. Now she needs Jeff's help with her unfinished business, and she's not taking no for an answer. When she was alive, Kimberlee wasn't just a mean girl; she was also a complete kleptomaniac. So if Jeff wants to avoid being haunted until graduation, he'll have to help her return all of the stolen items. But Jeff soon discovers that it's much easier to steal something than it is to bring it back.

    This book was just OK, kind of boring. I didn't realize it was geared towards teens. So it was pretty immature, narator was very good.

    When childhood friend Victoria rejects his love, Jeremy takes his life on his 20th birthday.

    On his 21st birthday, he wakes to find Victoria holding his hand, blissfully in love with him. Jeremy can’t remember the previous year, but he savors the miracle of waking up alongside the woman he loves. The next time he wakes, two years have passed and Jeremy is now a spectator of his own life. Victoria has given him a child, but the man alongside her is a cruel, egotistical, seemingly unknowable Jeremy. Is it amnesia? Insanity? Or has Jeremy been cursed for his selfish, destructive act?

    This was a decent listen though the story gets a little frustrating. I didn't realize it had a religious message until the last 10 minutes, otherwise I probably wouldn't have ordered it. But I'm glad I didn't know because it was worth the listen. Nick Podel is as usual the best narrator of all time.

    A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news - it’s the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men. A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. But he never expected that his anonymous blog and journal would ultimately record humanity’s last days. Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called Safe Havens are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves.

    Nick Podel is by far my favorite narrator, and on top of that this book is really well written and translated. If you like zombie stories or watch Walking Dead, you'll love this story.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    This book was basically enjoyable. There were allot of parts though that were pretty far reaching, even for fiction.
