    Forrmer academic Arthur Opp weighs 550 pounds and hasn’t left his rambling Brooklyn home in a decade. Twenty miles away in Yonkers, seventeen-year-old Kel Keller navigates life as the poor kid in a rich school and pins his hopes on what seems like a promising baseball career - if he can untangle himself from his family drama.

    I loved the story it's different than anything I have ever read. Open ended books always leave me feeling empty I like to know what happens in the future.
    I expected a little bit more from Keith Szarabajka. I LOVED him in the Moonlight Bay series (Seize the Night and Fear Nothing by Dean Koontz) so I may have had an unrealistic expectation.

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    Story

    You may never look at the ice cream man the same again (I know I don’t). Not Stephen King’s normal super natural adventure but it was still just as creepy. Very few authors can create characters that I feel like I actually know like Stephen King. Will Patton is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators (I will always miss Frank Muller). Patton did a great job. Another home run for both Stephen King and Will Patton – Loved it

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Story

    I’m not sure why the other reviews are not giving this book the credit it deserves however it is a great classic Stephen King story. If you are a SK fan this is for you. In my opinion it reminds me of the Stand in a lot of ways. The sarcasm of the characters is hysterical although in a creepy kind of way. My only gripe is the accent the narrator uses for New England accent, it sounds like a British accent.

    A new store has opened in the town of Castle Rock, Maine. It has whatever your heart desires...if you're willing to pay the price. In this chilling novel by one of the most potent imaginations of our time, evil is on a shopping spree and out to scare you witless. Presented unabridged and read by the author.

    Story

    I am new to the Stephen King experience and I love most of them and his narration makes the stories more personal somehow. Needful things gives me food for thought, it’s true in life we all have something or a memory most of us would do just about anything to have or have that time back. Again the story is good not his best in my opinion but the music is distracting and takes away from the experience.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    Amazing – Fantastic This book is so hard to explain the story and give it the credit it deserves (of course I’m not Stephen King). I love the Green Mile and that is as close as I can come to a comparison. I wish I hadn’t given other books 5 stars I feel like that is an insult to 11/22/63. The mind of Stephen King is something I can’t comprehend. Craig Wasson (whom I have never had the pleasure of listening to) draws you in from the first 10 minutes. Also for those of us that love a bargain a 30 hour book for 1 credit is another good reason to invest.

    Tami Hoag, author of Dust to Dust, returns with "a definite winner," says Booklist. In a trailer in a Florida swamp, time is running out for Erin Seabright. A pawn in a kidnapper's terrifying game for a ransom no one can pay, her last hope is a washed-up ex-cop who has already lost it all - not once, but twice.

    The Oak Knoll series from Tami Hoag is wonderful however this one just doesn’t measure up. The main character is difficult to like and the dialog is childish throughout. Take a pass.

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    There is not much I can say that hasn't been said about the story. I listen to about 5 books a week and I would put this in the top 20 of about 800 books I have listened to. I don’t have any knowledge of the Japanese or Asian cultures so this was a journey into another world literally. This is my first experence with Bernadette Dunne however she quietly draws you in and holds your attention magnificently. A MUST READ!!

    When Marissa is found brutally murdered, with her young daughter, Haley, resting her head on her mother's bloody breast, she sends the idyllic California town of Oak Knoll into a tailspin. Already on edge with the upcoming trial of the See- No-Evil killer, residents are shocked by reports of the crime scene, which might not have been discovered for days had it not been for a chilling 911 call: a small child's voice saying, "My daddy hurt my mommy."

    This is a great series and a good narrator. The writing styles gives the perspective from all characters giving a better perspective and more in-depth story.

    It’s interesting to remember what it was like in the 80’s (for those of us that are old enough) I tend to forget the days of not being able to get in touch with someone at any time.

    Little Emily Steiner left a church meeting late one afternoon and strolled toward home along a lakeside path; a week later, her nude body was discovered, bound in blaze-orange duct tape. Called by the North Carolina authorities, forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta recognizes similarities to the gruesome work of a serial killer who has long eluded the FBI.

    Patricia Cornwell's novels of big-city police have taken this classic genre to a new level. "Move over, Carl Hiaasen, you've got company," the San Francisco Examiner warned. "Patricia Cornwell has switched to Hiaasen's world of black humor and nearly conquers it." USA Today concurred: "Cornwell has coined a new penny." With Isle of Dogs, Cornwell outdoes herself with a wry tale of life and turmoil behind the blue wall.

    I know this one hasn’t gotten all great review but I LOVE it. This is a whole different side to the Queen of forensics, the characters are hilarious. Audio is the only way to read/listen to this book, the inflection in the characters voices would probably be difficult to pick up in the written version. Southern Cross is another funny Patricia Cornwell book however it’s an older book and not available on Audible. If you ever get the chance pick it up.
