    The Dead Path tells the gripping story of a broken man, Nicholas Close. A terrible accident has left him a widower and awoken in him the ability to see the dead. Now, he can’t escape visions of tortured spirits, their last moments caught in horrible, endlessly replaying loops. Nicholas leaves London and returns to Australia, where he is disturbed to see that a heavily treed tract of land in his childhood suburb has somehow escaped development.

    "Absolutely Riveting"
    Overall

    Stephen Irwin's novel, The Dead Path, is a striking departure from the usual, enjoyable but somewhat dog-eared, horror fare. Quite original, with elements of mystery, conspiracy and terror, Irwin's nimble prose brings a bright, almost historical, clarity to the Horror genre, with a fresh, complex voice and a driven, frightening plot.

    I usually only listen during the long Bay Area commute, but this story had me yanking the iPod out of my vehicle and toting it up to my cubby, because I "couldn't put this book down."

  • The Red and the Black

    So what would Al Gore choose if he had a book club? Gore named Stendhal's The Red and the Black, a 19th century classic chock full of adultery, betrayal, and moral vacuity, as his favorite book on a recent broadcast of Oprah. It's a bit shocking of a choice, given his wife and running mate's position on clean, wholesome literature. Listen and decide for yourself the merit of this presidential pick.

    "Perfectly Charming Rendition"
    Overall

    My download sounded just dandy. Davina Porter reads well, and her charming accent lends a delightful touch to this rendition of "The Red and the Black."

    Of all the books I read in college, this is the most memorable. Although many of the reviews I read here are unflattering, do not be deceived. If you enjoy wit, intrigue, and have a taste for period pieces, you will not be disappointed.
