  • The Library Policeman: Three Past Midnight

    Set in Junction City, Iowa, The Library Policeman is the story of Sam Peebles, a middle-aged businessman who happens to have some overdue books. It seems a minor offense - but not to Junction City's malevolent monster of a librarian. What follows is spine-tingling suspense as only Stephen King can deliver it.

    If you like King's other works you will like this. Ken Howard does a great job with the different characters. Very distinct voices for all of them. I was surprised to see he has not narrated much else. I particularly liked his voice for Dirty Dave and the other drunks. Very big stretch from reality, but the way King is so masterful at fleshing out his characterization is what draws me in.

    The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

    Story

    Will Patton has the perfect subtle southern drawl for this book. One of the few books I have listened to where I was actually nervous for what was going to happen to the characters. There are no slow parts, or any unnecessary words. A perfect short novel.

  • A Place of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams

    With this updated edition of his earlier book, A Place of My Own, listeners can revisit the inspired, intelligent, and often hilarious story of Pollan’s realization of a room of his own—a small, wooden hut, his “shelter for daydreams” — built with his admittedly unhandy hands. Inspired by both Thoreau and Mr. Blandings, A Place of My Own not only works to convey the history and meaning of all human building, it also marks the connections between our bodies, our minds, and the natural world.

    Gabrielle says: "Satisfying & I didn't even have to get a splinter."
    "Pollan is a great narrator"

    It would be nice if Michael Pollan would narrate the rest of his books. Scott Brick's voice to me just doesn't suit Pollan's writing. I love his use of language, and also how he goes into detail about his research of every issue. A very interesting listen even if you have no desire to build anything of your own.
