    When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert, he has no idea he’s been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon. He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan. But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn’t just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth.

    Story
    If you could sum up Origin in three words, what would they be?

    Bone chilling horror story that could give nightmares to the squeamish. I dare you to put yourself in the shoes of those that are trapped in this situation.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andy, Sun and Frank are the heroes. But I think Bud was the most interesting.Bud was able to make my goose bumps run and hide .


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time hearing a performance by Luke but he did an exceptional job.


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

    Although I did not cry for any of the characters, I could sure feel their fear.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is what a " true horror" story should be. Edge of your seat mind numbing terror.

    In Alaska, people disappear every day. In Aleut detective Kate Shugak’s Park, they’ve been disappearing a lot lately. Hikers head into the wilderness unprepared and get lost. Miners quit without notice at the busy Suulutaq Mine. Suicides leave farewell notes and vanish. Not only are Park rats disappearing at an alarming rate, but so is life in the Park as Kate knows it.

    sharon says: "Slow and slower until the last few chapters."
    "A Night Of Profanity"
    Overall

    I found this book very slow moving with a very weak plot. In no way do you get the sense of knowing the characters as they are not developed to any extent. The people of Alaska are portrayed as uneducated and have to use profanity to express themselves. I kept hoping that the story would improve but that just did not happen. Save yourself a credit and having to listen to ten hours of gutter trash language.

    Lamar Pye has escaped from Oklahoma State Penitentiary, accompanied by his idiot cousin and a vicious but cowardly artist. To have stayed in prison was certain death, but his chances on the outside are not much greater: his excesses know no bounds - one killing follows another. But one murder brings his nemesis upon him: Bud Pewtie of the Highway Patrol loses his partner in a blood-soaked shoot-out with Lamar, and from that moment on, nothing will stop him from getting even.

    Story

    I've now listened to two of Stephen Hunters audio books. I find that his characters are well developed and the contents are well researched. His stories move with a fast pace from beginning to end. The only flaw that I notice is the excessive use of profanity through out. I know that he is being realistic in the language of his characters, but needs to tone it down a bit.

    Story

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Disappointed Canadian"
    Overall

    An amazing idea for a story. It's to bad that the author used a a great story theme to paint Christians as hypocritical bigots. In a story with so many characters it is odd that a God fearing righteous man or woman could not be found is this town.
