    A dark and sweeping adventure, Dreamcatcher is set in the haunted city of Derry - the site of Stephen King's It and Insomnia. In it, four young boys stand together and do a brave, good thing, an act that changes them in ways that they hardly understand. A quarter-century later, as grown men who have gone their separate ways, these friends come together once a year to hunt in the woods of Maine.

    Overall

    My first King book. I'm a non-fiction type of guy but recently decided to read a fiction work "in between" my business and history books. This was so fun to read. I have to blame King for the fact that I let two days of graduate school go to hell while I stayed locked in on Dudditz and his buds. Very very well spelled out characters who you can picture. The kindness the boys had shown a person in need was touching. GREAT BOOK!! READ IT!!!

    A blast from the past: Five years ago Brian's sister gave a toast at his wedding... and he hasn't spoken to her since. She's returning home with something to share with everyone. As if that wasn't enough? How about a balloon bending street person who takes a liking to her? Add to that Mel's mother-in-law, and Brian's parents, and put them in a room for Thanksgiving Dinner... What could be more stressful than that? Well, maybe, a Jumbo jet crashing into a neighborhood in the Rockaways - but just barely.

    Hobbs, once again, hit it spot on for us former medics. Some hilarious characters and scenes too! If you are someone from outside the fire and EMS world take it from this veteran medic, this is very realistic stuff. It is that crazy out there for a trauma junkie.

    Brian is going through a rough patch in his life. His wife, Amber, has divorced him and is remarrying a rich Wall Street hedge fund manager. His boss hates him, his partner tolerates him, and he likes to stand on the ledge 10 stories up, bottle in hand. Four years ago his infant son passed away in his crib, sending his life into a tail spin. All he has left is saving lives, and saving them on his terms. That's not enough. Enter Brooklyn, a fiery redheaded stringer, who works the overnight selling video and stills to the New York media.

    Story

    I spent 10 years as a street medic and have never found any novels which even come close to what is really like, until now! Hobbs did a great time of capturing the hours of boredom, seconds of terror, brotherhood of us sick people who love EMS, the strain on relationships, and personal toll.

    Britain, early 10th century AD: a time of change. There are new raids by the Vikings from Ireland, and turmoil among the Saxons over the leadership of Mercia. A younger generation is taking over. Æthelred, the ruler of Mercia, is dying, leaving no legitimate heir. The West Saxons want their king, but Uhtred has long supported Athelflaed, sister to King Edward of Wessex and widow of Aethelred. Widely loved and respected, Athelflaed has all the makings of a leader - but can Saxon warriors ever accept a woman as their ruler?

    In a departure from the legal thriller genre, John Grisham's latest novel draws inspiration from his own rural childhood in Arkansas. Listen and enjoy this moving tale about a 7-year-old boy and the dose of reality that comes, one autumn during the harvest, to take away his innocence. Also available abridged.

    Overall

    When John Grisham spoke at my graduation from Arkansas State University, I felt a bit guilty for not having read any of his works. The truth is though that I am not a huge fan of fiction. As a historian, I find the truth to be much more interesting then anything which can be imagined. This book beckoned me though as it takes place in the state where I grew up. It was very entertaining to listen to Lucas' story of life in the cotton. One of my friends, a good bit older then myself, responded to my inquiry on whether he had read this book with, "I remember being one of the hill people." It's a simple, sweet, and warm little story about the rough but honest life that some folks in Arkansas still live. You can find this kind of poverty still if you go farther south into the delta. I'm not much on Lawyer stories but I think Mr. Grisham hit a home run with this one. Iwonder if it was a St. Louis Cardinals homerun.
