    Tragedy has forced 16-year-old Victor Frankenstein to swear off alchemy forever. He burns the Dark Library. He vows he will never dabble in the dark sciences again — just as he vows he will no longer covet Elizabeth, his brother’s betrothed.

    If only these things were not so tempting.... When he and Elizabeth discover a portal into the spirit world, they cannot resist. Together with Victor’s twin, Konrad, and their friend Henry, they venture into a place of infinite possibilities where power and passion reign.

    ...the hard way. Victor believes intelligence equals or surpasses wisdom. The story is a well written and very immaginative depictiin of what led the growing intellect, but lacking a moral compass, to tragedy.

    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

    Stephen King is as always an excellent storyteller he could even make u feel sympathy 4 the devil.
    It was a compelling story&an interesting idea.
    But as always S. K. injects his political ideology&anti-religeous bias into his works, which is his right. But you don't have a right to ur own facts.
    He laments our times, while lauding the past, yet refuses to acknowledge who's policies led us here, he laments the racism of the past, yet again fails to acknowldge who's policies supported that issue, and attacks, wh chaacter assassination , the very people who made that era better.

    ...at a time when another religion of peace is actually murdering, and/or raping men, women, and children, i can't imagine why i would want to give my time or $$$ to an author slandering some of the very people mosttargeted for abuse. I'm asking for a refund, and i urge my neighbors to warn others about bigotry in other books.

    Once every year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip - a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfre. The boys are a tight-knit crew. There’s Kent, one of the most popular kids in school; Ephraim and Max, also well-liked and easygoing; then there’s Newt the nerd and Shelley the odd duck. For the most part, they all get along and are happy to be there - which makes Scoutmaster Tim’s job a little easier.

    Story

    It's a well thought out fictional account of possible future events. There were only a few oh c'mon moments. The love story is a sweet 20 something romance,and a a little touching too. The scriptural revelations were very interesting. The Christian conversions were a little churchy, but unless yoir offended by Christianity, it's a very good read.

    Read it and u will see what I mean. My impressions are that the author builds a tense& somewhat creepy atmosphere, and characters are at least 3-D. U do feel something for their struggles. You could say this story is about 4 naive 60's liberals getting scared somewhat straighter.

    There is an old, empty house in Devil's Cleave, a deep gorge that leads from the high moors down to the harbour village of Hollow Bay. The house is Crickley Hall and it's large and grim, somehow foreboding. It's rumoured to be haunted. It's thought to hold a secret. Despite some reservations, the Caleighs move in, searching for respite in this beautiful part of North Devon, seeking peace and perhaps to come to terms with what's happened to them as a family. But all is not well with the house....

    Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

    When brilliant archaeologist Dilara Kenner is contacted by Sam Watson, an old family friend who says that he has crucial information about her missing father, Dilara abandons her Peruvian dig and rushes to Los Angeles to meet him. But at the airport, Sam speaks instead of Noah’s Ark—the artifact her father had long been searching for—and the possible death of billions. Before Sam can explain, he collapses. With his dying breath, he urges Dilara to find Tyler Locke—a man she’s never heard of.

    Story

    Basically Evil Bible thumping Greenie-Weenies seek to destroy the world. Try to imagine how idiotic a tale of Mad Hindus would seem, yet we are sold over and over in our culture the story that a people whose PRIMARY beliefs are Love their God and their neighbor seek the mass destruction of others. I know for certain that last time we met at my church in the Billions of dollars Bunker we like to sarcastically call THE HIVE, we agreed to put a new roof on our wee church, fix the heat/ac, and feed the poor.
    Never mind that there is a religion of peace that publically declares a desire to bath the world in the blood of millons so that their messiah may return and their martyrs may recieve their 72 virginal rewards...maybe its just easier to kick sand in the face of a religion that turns the other cheek, instead of cutting your head off.
