  • Shatter

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Michael Robotham
    • Narrated By Sean Barrett

    Psychologist Joe O'Laughlin fails to stop a confused woman from jumping off a bridge to her death. Joe knows she had been talking on a cellphone. Now he needs to find out who - or what - was on the other end of the line.

    Old Hippy says: "First rate suspense story, great narration!"
    "Great story... untill the end"

    This was a truly masterful work of fiction that kept me enthralled the entire time. The characters were very well developed, and you came to truly loath the villain. I rated this story as 5 stars before completing the book assuming it would continue to please its audience; however I was MOST dissatisfied with the ending. The Climax was perfect and the author masterfully set the board for a knockout checkmate, but instead the story foundered in the home stretch leaving the reader feeling incomplete. If you are the type of reader who really likes to see the villain get his comeuppance, you will be disappointed.

  • Under the Dome: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (34 hrs and 29 mins)
    • By Stephen King
    • Narrated By Raul Esparza
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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.

    Venita says: "Lenghtly but good, ending was rushed"
    "Not so subtle message..."

    Good story, but it is very weighted both politically and religiously. The main villain is a fat, GW bush loving, Obama hating religious fanatic who claims everything he does is "God's will." Not to mention that he uses no curse words but rather refers to all those against him as "cotton pickers." Apparently Mr. King tried to publish this book 2 times prior, but elected to wait for the correct political timing for it's release. In summary, the villains are nothing more than extreme racist, right wing conservative stereotypes. I guess it's no secret that Mr King is a Left winged atheist... Also I don't know if I missed something in the beginning and the villain (Mr. Renney) was supposed to be from down south, but the story takes place in Maine and Mr Renney just so happens to have a thick southern accent just like Bush! Go figure.

    Other than that it is entertaining enough, however why do all the characters have to make such stupid, unrealistic decisions?!? Surely a talented writer can think of ways to bring their characters adversity without cheating by making them take EVERY wrong turn!
