    After Jack the Ripper and before Son of Sam there was only one name their equal in terror: the deadly, elusive, and mysterious Zodiac. Beginning in 1968 the hooded mass murderer terrified the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area with a string of brutal killings. A sexual sadist, his pleasure was torture and murder.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Zodiac to be better than the print version?

    In some ways yes since the voice is perfect for this type of opus.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zodiac?

    The amount of information compiled just from the Darlene Ferrin murder. Almost as if solving her murder would have revealed the identity of the killer.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The recounting of the Ferrin- Mageux attacks.


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

    Just about. Or least to listen to it again and again.


    Any additional comments?

    It's too bad Graysmith is the only individual to take an interest in the topic. And he wasn't even an author. He was a cartoonist!

    Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is universally regarded as one of literature's finest achievements, as the great Russian novelist explores the inner workings of a troubled intellectual. Raskolnikov, a nihilistic young man in the midst of a spiritual crisis, makes the fateful decision to murder a cruel pawnbroker, justifying his actions by relying on science and reason, and creating his own morality system. Dehumanized yet sympathetic, exhausted yet hopeful, Raskolnikov represents the best and worst elements of modern intellectualism. The aftermath of his crime and Petrovich's murder investigation result in an utterly compelling, truly unforgettable cat-and-mouse game. This stunning dramatization of Dostoevsky's magnum opus brings the slums of St. Petersburg and the demons of Raskolnikov's tortured mind vividly to life.

    What did you love best about Crime and Punishment (Recorded Books Edition)?

    I loved the slow methodical almost cerebral reading done by the narrator. You get a real emotional sense of the mind of the characters. Exactly read as required by the author himself. Not hurried but delivered almost as a patient actor would. Loved it. I guess this is why a film delivered thus has never been filmed. But oh well. I' ll settle for this reading hands down.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crime and Punishment (Recorded Books Edition)?

    His internal emotional turmoil. His very introverted chaos.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Of course, Raskolnikov.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His paranoia throughout as the police were in his presence.


    Any additional comments?

    Too bad The Brothers Karamazov is too expensive! Otherwise I'd buy it, too.
