    Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it’s like to be haunted by the past. For years after her daughter, Bonnie, was stolen from her, she fought for closure. When her mother, Sandra, asks Eve to find a missing friend named Beth Avery, she wants to help but is sure that Sandra is hiding something. The fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police reinforces Eve’s suspicions that something is very wrong. Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Sleep No More to be better than the print version?

    Don't know. Who would ever do both?


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really, but it was excellent.


    Which character – as performed by Elisabeth Rodgers – was your favorite?

    Eve of course.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Would not make a good movie. There are other Eve Duncan books that would need to be made into a movie firs.t


    Any additional comments?

    I am not sure how many male fans there are of this series, but I sure do love it. I connect with all of the characters. I have read every one in the series. I started reading/listing to books in 1996 and Eve Duncan was one of the first books I randomly pulled from a grocery store counter, so this series has become a comfort book for me.

    If you could sum up 'Til Death Do Us Part in three words, what would they be?

    Funny. Excellent. Gripping.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 'Til Death Do Us Part?

    The final stand off with Eliza


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    How he is able to handle the humor portion with the serious portion.


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

    I didn't...but easily could have.


    Any additional comments?

    I really love this series. I did take some getting use to at first (Ryan Seacrest...seriously?) but now I could not imagine the books any other way. I know the movie/TV rights were recently purchased and I hope they turn it into a TV series there is room for another Zombie series.

    On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer. On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace.

    C. Vincent says: "Great narrator, unbelievable, never-ending story"
    "The title is not the only great part of this book."

    Story
    Would you listen to Snow White Must Die again? Why?

    No. But I have never found any book that I would listen to more then once. I have too many books on my list to read as it is.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did. Had me guessing right from the beginning.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Fass – was your favorite?

    I liked all of them equally.


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

    For sure. But the only way that could ever happen with any book is when I am driving for our annual vacation.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very excellent read. It had me thinking the whole time and rooting for the main character to not be guilty (not saying he was or wasn't, I just did not want him to be guilty).

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "A little slow at first, but when it gets going...."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    The story and the narrators


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Girl?

    When you realize who Amy is.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Amy was pissed that her husband did not like who she really was. She pretended to have a different type of personality for the first few years of the marriage and when she decided to stop acting and be herself she was so mad that he did not love the real "Amy". It show her delusions perfectly. If she would have been herself when they first met, then Nick would never have married her; and somehow this is HIS fault!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end. When you think he finally has her....then BAM!


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this was an excellent book. It did start out a little slow for me but at least it was still and interesting slow read. When the book begins to take-off, its hard to put down.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Great overall story

    Saving the two people at the airport


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    The main character


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't know.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I would have realized this was the 2nd book in the series. Even though I read this one first, I never got lost. When he was on his own and trying to get back to the compound....it dragged on a little long.
