    In a world where an anti-aging cure is available worldwide, immortality comes with its own unique problems. John Farrell is about to get "The Cure". Old age can never kill him now. The only problem is, everything else still can.

    There was nothing that i can say bad about this book. It just wasn't my thing but it was still entertaining. Very thought provoking, but no happy endings here.

    The Thing on the Doorstep, another amazing tale of horror from the pen of H.P. Lovecraft. Imagine a person with a brilliant mind, but a very weak will meeting and marrying a person whose body is merely a vehicle transporting the "soul" of a very evil entity looking to trade bodies and become a man. Imagine also that this person with the weak will and brilliant mind is your best friend. Beware answering your friends knock at your door after midnight.

    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.

    Definitely not for baby's bedtime reading, this hilarious and irreverent take on classic fairytales - think Shrek for grownups - combines humor, mystery, and characters only a fairy godmother could love...

    It takes a little bit to understand what is join on but well worth it. And the readers voice is so sexy. If you like Confessions of a D-list super villain you will love this one. The story is told from the point of view of a cocky village from a old fiery tail. Yes their is some language and some sexual themes but very good story and well thought out.

    Loch is seeking revenge. It would help if she wasn’t in jail. The plan: To steal a priceless elven manuscript that once belonged to her family, but is now in the hands of the most powerful man in the Republic. To do so, Loch - former soldier, former prisoner, and current fugitive - must assemble a crack team of magical misfits that includes a cynical illusionist, a shape shifting unicorn, a repentant death priestess, a talking magical war hammer, and a lad with seemingly no skills.

    Story

    I will not comment on the reader really. She was average and thus tolerable and enjoyable.

    I felt there was nothing really special about his story. If felt like the story was a prequel when it wasn't. It was odd how that worked out. You felt like the characters where more developed in other books (that do not exist I think) so their awesomeness was implied as if the reader already had a relationship with them. Character backgrounds where mentioned but never elaborated on. Not much about the world is explained so you feel that there is more that you don't know about.

    Dry, nothing like HP Lovecraft, felt a lot like a history lesson on fictional pirates, dull conversations between characters, no mystery. Just a wast of time.

    Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    This reader is just rocking. I think I could buy other books that he has read regardless if they are my normal subject. The reader makes all the difference in the world in a book and I just can not speak more highly of him

    I always wanted to read these books but just never had the time and the reader made it even better for me. I felt that, while trying to read it myself, the books were dry. But they are very intriguing.

    I was shocked just how much better the book was than the movie. I was afraid that it would be a cheep knock off of Twilight but it is a book all its own. Very intriguing. And the reader rocks hard with sound effects. Then ending froult like it was made with the idea that there was another book to be made so not much was resolved, but that aside it was still good.
