    FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail.

    Overall

    I am normally a big fan of Patterson. I saw book on the NY times best seller list and thought I had a good one. I'm half way through and I think I'm moving on. In fairness to Patterson,, it may be the reader. I feel like a child being read to by a romper room teacher. He has read other Patterson books but for some reason, he gets to me on this book. I'll give it one more day.

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    "Hate to give bad ones"
    Overall

    Hate to give bad reviews, but this book just doesn't do it. The topic and reviews brought me to it. I listened to the very slow first half, and kept going based on the reviews that the second half grabbed you. It never happened, and with about 4 hrs to go, I must throw in the towel

    They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.

    Ann M. Chavie says: "Terrifying"
    "Couldn't be Koontz"
    Overall

    I have been a long time fan of Dean Koontz and I find it hard to believe that this is his writing. I have already given up on one author, (James Patterson)because I believe he is not the one behind the pen. These two authors seem to have become book machines, cranking out one after another after another, and I suspect they are putting their names on others writings. You seem to never know when your going to get the real deal. Very disappointing. Sad to say, I will be staying clear of yet another author.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Dataman says: "Not Your Ordinary Western Novel (Series)"
    "Could not engage"
    Overall

    I listen to many, many books. I don't know what I would do without them. I decided to try this author, based on the reviews, and after listening to over half of the book, I had to throw in the towel. As hard as I tried, I just could not engage.

    I don't write many reviews but The Host as well as all of her books deserve a note. Great story teller. All her books have you engaged instantly.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    I passed this one up a couple of times and then I finally took the plunge and downloaded the book. I'm about 4 hrs from the end, and I am already upset that its almost over. What a great book. I will download the sequel right away. A highly recommended book. I hope they put some of Folletts older books on audible. I keep watching for them. (Eye of the Needle maybe?) Certainly one of my favorite authors and you can't loose with this one.

    Sorry to do this but I just could not engage in this book. I've been listening to audio books for over 3 yrs, 1.5 to 2 hrs per day during my drive and have many books under my belt. Some books are slow getting started so I give them a good honest try before I give up, but I have to give up on this one. My suggestion is go in another direction.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."
    "Without doubt, My favorite book of all time"
    Overall

    I've listened to many books, many of them great books, but this was by far the best. Lonesome Dove was my first Western. I've listened to so many books that I was running out of material. I decided to take a chance and try the Western genre.I've never listened to or read a western. I was very apprehensive and when I saw 36 hrs, I was almost certain in my mind that this was going to be a waste of a credit. I was wrong on all counts. This was the best book I've ever listened to. I have 3 hr left and already feeling bad that this book is going to end. Do yourself a favor and put this book on your list. I don't write many reviews on the books that I listen to but I felt compelled to report on this one.

    Nick Conover, the son of a factory worker, is the CEO of a major corporation in a company town. Nick, once the most admired man in Fenwick, Michigan, is now, having presided over massive layoffs, the most despised. A single parent since the recent death of his wife, he's struggling to insulate his 10-year-old daughter and angry 16-year-old son from the town's hostility.

    James says: "Nail-biting suspense"
    "Great Entertainment"
    Overall

    I am amazed by the number of bad reviews on this book. I have 2 hr to go on this one and it is one of the best listens to date for me. If you liked Paranoia, you can't help but like this one. I was immediatly engaged and stayed that way through the entire book.
    Highly recommended!!!

    A blisteringly paced tale of one family's struggle to stay together in the face of the most terrifying psychotic killer to haunt a novel in some time, Mr. Murder is one of Dean Koontz's most harrowing, thought-provoking stories.

    Salty says: "Enjoy Dean's visual imagination"
    "Without doubt one of his best"
    Overall

    Couldn't wait to get in my car each day. I was wishing my ride was longer than 40 minutes each way. Dean Koontz has done it again. His style captures you and it won't let you go. Great listen. Koontz needs more of his work on audio.
