    You'll love this collection of three Anne Rice favorites at a bargain price. The Witching Hour: Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real a family of witches - a family given to poetry and incest, to murder and philosophy, a family that is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous and seductive being. Lasher: Now, Anne Rice brings us again - even more magically - into the midst of the dynasty of witches she introduced in The Witching Hour. Taltos: What can I confess? I'm Ashlar. I'm a Taltos.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends on the friend - if they enjoy simple quick reads then yes. Friends who like the details and a meatier book - no


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    First the books are out of order - Mayfair Witches is the first book. Second I'm currently reading the kindle version of the Mayfair Witches and the abridged parts leave out way too much for my comfort. I feel like it changes the story a bit too much, while you get the general gist you're missing a lot of the good stuff - it the movies version


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Yes the narrators did well but I thought the guy in abridged parts was little dull

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    What did you love best about Doctor Sleep?

    Steven King does what he does best and spin a story that fold in, on and over itself. He pushes the limits of your imagination and strike fear into heart over the mundane.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alway Danny but I've been in love with home since the shinning.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene in the bar parking lot where the doctor tells him drive away - I cheered because Danny really turns the corner there


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

    Absolutely, as with most Stephen King once you're in it's hard to walk away

    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.

    What could Peter Clines have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The ending was ummm a bit out there. It was good but you have to be willing to suspend reality and fully embrace imagination.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Opening room 14 of course
