    Hollywood superstar Max Conroy is A-list all the way; he's one of the few actors who can guarantee box office blockbusters. Max has it all: the charisma, the stunning movie star wife, and a sizable personal fortune that grows along with his legend. When Max escapes from a rehab center in Arizona, disoriented and longing to return to his blue-collar roots, he becomes the target of a motley group of kidnappers planning to cash in by holding him for ransom. Max not only outsmarts them; he evens the score.

    What did you love best about Icon?

    The character was simply amazing. Having the character be a big movie star really set him apart from most books. We have an idea of what movies stars are like and having this character interact with people and their assumptions really breaks the mold from a traditional character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Icon?

    I can't say it enough about the character, but Max Conroy was awesome. How he deals with this life altering ordeal as a celebrity gives a fresh take on a simple story. He can't behave life a normal person, because his face is everywhere. So he must handle this situation different then most people.


    Have you listened to any of Ryan Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but I really liked his voice.


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

    I couldn't stop listening. I wanted to know what happens next.

    Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He’s a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened - of himself or some other fiend.

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

    I would defiantly recommend this book to a friend and have done so since listening to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a no brainer, Dexter is by far my favorite Character in this book. I love the way he thinks and process people and events. I love how he is viewing the world as a outsider trying to fit in.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Lindsay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my first audio book by Jeff Lindsay, and I love how the author is the one reading this.


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

    In fact it was one I listen to in one sitting. It wasn't a very long book and I listen to it durring a 8 hour road trip this month.


    Any additional comments?

    I would warn fans of the Dexter TV show that this book is simular, yet very very different then this show. Which would cause some to dislike the book altogether. So if you are looking to expand upon the show, this isn't for you. It's it's own set of stories and I for one can't wait to continue.
