    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Story

    A story in a story in a story in the middle of a series after the ending had already been written. Make sense? It will when you read it.All and all it was alright on about par with the other Roland Baggo books.

    King did a good job reading this book. I like his style he does well for an author. Frank Mueller was the best and would have nailed this book but he took a header off his bike on the black top. Shame a real loss to the auido book field.

    In Christopher Golden’s first horror novel in more than a decade - a work reminiscent of early Stephen King - Snowblind updates the ghost story for the modern age. The small New England town of Coventry had weathered 1,000 blizzards...but never one like this, where people wandered into the whiteout and vanished. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same. Now, as a new storm approaches 12 years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow.

    The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

    A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question....

    Its long. Very long but worth a listen. Not a huge pay off but interesting. This novel was actually a few novels in japan. I would suggest breaking it up and listening to something in between books. Weird but relaxing.

There’s Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can’t save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer no matter how much sacrifi­cial blood he pours on his “prayer log.”

Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    The bad news its official King has lost his edge. This about his fifth book in so many years that have been weak for him. The do gooder hero in this book kind of gets old. I miss Kings flawed characters.

    The good news is an average Kings story is still better the most peoples best.

    Story

    This book is just fine as good as the other two. The author hasn't changed his style at all. He always wrote long flashbacks to reveal character. The whole series is based on that. The same people who whine about the cliff hangers and the long time between book releases praise the Fat Mans Fire and Ice series and he does the same thing.

    I don't care for Bradbury style. He's got a good raspy voice but he over acts stressing the Dudley do right aspects of the character. Come to think about it that's one part of Brett's writing I hate is his characters kissing each others butts to much. Stop talking about how great each persons actions are Brett and let your writing stand for itself.

    He should take a page out of the Fat Mans writing and knock off the self thought about every frigging thing they do.

    Danny writes the review and tries to decide what the people think about his review. Maybe he was to hard on the people. He should be more like Brett's characters and express his love of the author, readers and narrator. Danny hopes he didn't offend anyone but he was abused by a fat farmer who let his mother die. Danny could give a crap less.

    See my point.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Story

    Even though the story was good overall it had its low points. First the story has a few cliched characters. Worse though was the cliched beer drinking parties on the roof. Come on clinking beer bottles watching the sun going down, I mean if you really do that your a freaking loser, your a walking cliche a douce bag through and through society would be better off if you threw yourself off the roof. Anyway the worst belongs to the slow speaking pause cursed narrator. He speaks so slow I get bored, I was just about ready to give up when I upped the speed of the recording and changed my mind and finished the book. I did like the story besides the aboved mentioned.

    Princeton, New Jersey, at the turn of the 20th century: a tranquil place to raise a family, a genteel town for genteel souls. But something dark and dangerous lurks at the edges of the town, corrupting and infecting its residents. Vampires and ghosts haunt the dreams of the innocent. A powerful curse besets the elite families of Princeton; their daughters begin disappearing. A young bride on the verge of the altar is seduced and abducted by a dangerously compelling man - a shape-shifting, vaguely European prince who might just be the devil.

    If your expecting twilight then skip this. Oates is one of the best living writers today and would not sink to that level. A fine mixture of Princeton history and fiction. I hated to see it end.

    The award-winning artist Brom takes us on a haunting look at the true world of Peter Pan, in his first full-length novel. From modern day New York to the dying land of Faerie, The Child Thief reveals the world of Peter Pan through the eyes of an insecure runaway who is seduced by Peter’s charm. But any dreams of a fairy wonderland are quickly replaced by the reality of life and death survival as Peter’s recruits are forced into a lethal battle in which the line between good and evil is blurred.

    Re telling Peter Pan on acid would be a good summary. The story is fine but the voices the narrator uses for Pan is annoying. Just the way he says PEEEETTTTEEERR over and over is enough to make some one driving crash head long into concrete wall.

    When struggling riverboat captain Abner Marsh receives an offer of partnership from a wealthy aristocrat, he suspects something’s amiss. But when he meets the hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York, he is certain. For York doesn’t care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh’s dilapidated fleet. Nor does he care that he won’t earn back his investment in a decade. York has his own reasons for wanting to traverse the powerful Mississippi. And they are to be none of Marsh’s concern - no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious his actions may prove.
