    Felix Castor has reluctantly returned to exorcism after the case of the Bonnington Archive ghost convinced him that he really can do some good with his abilities ("good," of course, being a relative term when dealing with the undead). But his friend, Rafi, is still possessed; the succubus Ajulutsikael (Juliet to her friends) still technically has a contract on him; and he's still dirt poor.

    What did you like best about Vicious Circle? What did you like least?

    I'm halfway though this one, and it still doesn't seem like it's started yet. The plot moves very slow, characters and scenes almost seem too detailed. I can't get enough motivation to continue to listen. Michael Kramer's narration was wonderful.


    If you’ve listened to books by Mike Carey before, how does this one compare?

    I loved the first book in the series. I listened every minute that I got a chance. I can't get get up the gumption to finish this one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I haven't found one yet.


    Do you think Vicious Circle needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. However, I'm willing to try the third book.

    On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two 11-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it's the first time they've seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives - and unknowing families to protect - will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?

    Tina says: "Really my rating is 4 1/2 stars."

    Story

    This was an great story. It kept my attention. However, at times, the story was difficult to follow in regards to keeping the two main characters straight, in-line with their childhood selves. This made for some confusion and caused me to give up making sense of it during certain parts of the story.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    Story

    Paula Hawkins is a fantastic writer. Written in a first person voice, one begins to completely identify with each of the characters and truly understand their perspective of the situation. The plot was complex and thoroughly explored. You will never guess the ending. The ending is satisfying, leaving the reader with no questions.

    The narrators are excellent. However, their voices are subtly different, enough so to distinguish one character from the other.

    I hated to get out of the car and turn the book off. I definitely lost a lot of sleep, trying to get to the next chapter. Definitely worth the money or credit!!!

    The bed and breakfast was hidden in the hills of West Virginia. Wary guests wondered how it could stay in business at such a creepy, remote location, especially with its bizarre, presidential decor and eccentric proprietor. With the event hotel for the national Iron Woman triathlon accidentally overbooked, competitor Maria was forced to stay at the Rushmore. But after checking into her room, she quickly realized she wasn't alone....

    If you like the movies Deliverance, Chernobyl Diaries, or Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you will love this book! The book includes mindless horror, bloody scenes, and a dramatic actor as narrator. You are actually there in the Roosevelt Manson. Read! Read! Read!
