    Dolores Claiborne's elderly employer dies suddenly, apparently from falling down a flight of stairs. This tragedy sparks memories of the day Dolores' husband died...the day of the total eclipse. Suspected by police and townspeople alike, she delivers a story of a disintegrating marriage, and the breaking point reached by a docile woman.

    Sandra M Irwin says: "A Great Listen!"
    "King and Sternahagen, great combo"
    Overall

    I have always wondered why people think Stephen King only writes horror, this shows he has the ability to draw you into a very compelling story and keep you there-I have yet to read one of his books that don't suck you in. Ms Sternahagen pulls off the narration, and makes you visualize Delores the way King wrote her. Some books have terrific potential as an audio book but are read by someone you can't listen to or believe in, this combination is perfect.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

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

    I'm not sure as I didnt read the print version, but a good narrator really makes a good book great.


    What other book might you compare Lamb to and why?

    I cant think of any as it was such a great concept. I think laughter is important and this book really made me laugh. The whole concept of God, Christ, Buddah, Krishna, etc. all wrapped up neatly, well not so neat in some cases, but in a way that wasnt putting any on the moral high ground and putting others down as a lesser Faith.


    What about Fisher Stevens’s performance did you like?

    This narrator was great, each character was easily discernable and each had their own humor. I dont know how this narrator wasnt laughing the whole time


    Who was the most memorable character of Lamb and why?

    Obviously, Biff. Long suffering and well loved by everyone but his Mother.


    Any additional comments?

    Dont judge it as sacrelgious, just enjoy it. God must have a sense of humor, look around us.

    When Bonnie Grayduck relocates from sunny Santa Cruz California to the small town of Lake Woebegotten, Minnesota, to live with her estranged father, chief of the local two-man police department, she thinks she's leaving her troubles behind. But she soon becomes fascinated by another student - the brooding, beautiful Edwin Scullen, whose reclusive family hides a terrible secret. (Psst: they're actually vampires. But they're the kind who don't eat people, so it's okay.)

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I didnt like the Twilight series and thought this would be funnier because I really liked the Zombies of Lake Woebegotten. It was ok, but maybe too close to the Twilight series, gag. The author is a good writer, maybe too good because I really hated the Bonnie character.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I had it figured out before the end


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None really, I think the author was too good as I really hated Bonnie and everything to do with her.


    Do you think The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, unless Edwin turns on Bonnie and kills her in a fit of rage because he realizes he has been played by a sociopath


    Any additional comments?

    I would read others by this author

    We were prepared for an earthquake. We had a flood plan in place. We could even have dealt with zombies. Probably. But no one expected the end to be quite so…sticky…or strawberry scented. Yahtzee Croshaw (Mogworld, Zero Punctuation Reviews) returns to audiobooks with a follow-up to his smash-hit debut: Jam, a dark comedy about the one apocalypse no one predicted.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I cant say I enjoyed or even liked this story. While it may be enjoyed by some, it wasnt my cup of tea and the narrators voice wasnt what I would have chosen..


    What didn’t you like about Yahtzee Croshaw’s performance?

    I dont care for his voice as a narrator

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    What made the experience of listening to I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it was free was icing on the cake, so far any Molly Harper book I have listened to has been fantastic, Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator for Harpers wit.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas?

    Just the whole continuation of the Iris Scanlon story and further development of the characters.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has the timing needed to make Harpers dry wit come to fruition. I'm not sure how she does it, but she must laugh her backside off when she completes some of the line and gets to a stopping point.


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

    When G.G. realizes how much Iris and Cal really love her and how to be thankful instead of resentful for their overprotective ways.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, Thank you so much for this freebee. I know it must have cost quite a bit to write, produce and make this available. Very few successful writers and narrators would have agreed to this, whether or not they were reembursed.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Some readers appeared to have not liked the last three or four book. i I dont agree. I found the entire series great fun. I do admit that I bought the first one as a sale book but I was hooked then. I thoroughly enjoy Ms Harris's books and Ms Parker brings Sookie to life! Thank you both for many hours of mystery and romance.

    Mark Tufo is a master of sarcasm and dry wit. How he comes up with his statements are beyond me, but they are so funny, people look at me at the gym when I laugh out loud at his comments. Sean Runnette is a great reader, I can actually picture the characters by their "voices". His range and ability is fantastic.

    I love books that run in series, ie. Sookie Stackhouse, Nice Girls Don's,.., etc, but this author writes books that are read in 5 hours and charges more than any other series. This is the reason I stopped listening to her books. She hasn't got near the talent of Charlaine Harris or Molly Harper. I rated the performance high because I like the narrator, and I gae the story and overall 2 because, the story line is good escapism, but, I don't like being taken advantage of or having the characters held hostage by the author.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Story

    Many times series books get weaker as the story goes on, if the author hasn't thought it all out and figured out where its going, not so with this series. Once again, the author and narrator team takes the stories to another level. There is nothing worse than having a good story ruined by having it read by a sub-par narrator.

    This series is fun to listen to, not as fun for me as Molly Harper where wolves or vampires or Charlaine Harris's Sookie series, but fun. I just really like the characters name Abby Normal, it reminds me of Young Frankenstein. The other characters have more normal names and the authors other characters interact well. The narrator does a good job, whic for audio books if very important.
