    The Vampire Archives is the biggest, hungriest, undeadliest collection of vampire stories, as well as the most comprehensive bibliography of vampire fiction ever assembled. Dark, stormy, and delicious, once it sinks its teeth into you there’s no escape.

    The Vampire Archives will delight you, especially if you're interested in the history of the vampire story.

    This is a very comprehensive compilation that spans across cultures and draws from the perspective of varied writers. I was enchanted by nearly every story and I found the biographical material that precedes each writer's work very engaging and informative.

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    I have listened to this book numerous times. There is a complexity in this one, I've not found in others. Some mysteries are not very dimensional but the truly best mysteries evoke a time, a place and well-drawn characters facing themselves and their own demons. This book succeeds with all flags flying.

    When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

    What did you love best about Fight Club?

    Having seen the movie adaptation first, I found listening to the book to be intriguing. It was helpful to experience the characters as their brilliant author had first conceived them and by extension it was rewarding to compare this to the movie screenplay, thereby understanding how a movie is built from the bones of a book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very recommended as there were even more laughs than I'd anticipated...
