    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her “Twinner” from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great adventure, never gets dull and the fantasy is great
    Muller again does a great job


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black House?

    Thunder 5 approaching blackhouse


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's just better, and does character voices well


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

    No way
    These books are 28hrs or so long
    If they did an abridged version I would hate them for it


    Any additional comments?

    Must buy the talisman 1st
    Not having read the DT books might confuse some people, or make them want to read them also

    Young Ajax Penumbra has not arrived in San Francisco looking for free love or a glimpse of the technological future. He is seeking a book: the single surviving copy of the Techne Tycheon, a mysterious volume that has brought and lost great fortune for anyone who has owned it. The last record of the book locates it in the San Francisco of more than a century earlier, and on that scant bit of evidence, Penumbra's university has dispatched him west to acquire it for their library.

    Would you listen to Insomnia again? Why?

    yes, its an involved story, i would listen again to see if i missed anything, plus DT insight


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ralph, you find yourself looking out for him


    What does Eli Wallach bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    his voice fits every aspect of the book, great great choice of reader


    If you could rename Insomnia, what would you call it?

    who knows


    Any additional comments?

    lots of comments about the sound effects are warranted, i finally bought the book and very glad i did. the effects are an attempt for increased spookiness, which worked, weren't quite as annoying as everyone says it was, i thought they were cool and fit in, just be ready to lower the volume a little

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    For over 20 years, Belasco House has stood empty. Regarded as the Mt. Everest of haunted houses, its shadowed walls have witnessed scenes of unimaginable horror and depravity. All previous attempts to probe its mysteries have ended in murder, suicide, or insanity.

    But now, a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers to Belasco House in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death. A wealthy publisher, brooding over his impending death, has paid a physicist and two mediums to establish the facts of life after death once and for all. For one night, they will investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townsfolk refer to it as the Hell House.

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.
