  • Intensity: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 35 mins)

    Story
    (212)

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Connie says: "One of the best Koontz Books!"
    "Suspense from the first to the last page"
    Overall

    After 5 minutes I was captured by this book - and this lasted until the end. Very "intense" book and highly recommendable.

  • The Poisonwood Bible

    Story
    (1919)

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    "Great story and great way of telling the story"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the changing perspective of storytelling. In each chapter the role of the storyteller shifted to a different daughter of the family and in some rare parts also to the view of the mother. Thereby the listener spread his sympathies to all female of the family. Interestingly the viewpoint of the father was never taken in the story.

    The story itself which was set in the background of real events in the Kongo takes a thought provoking critical stance on evangelization, colonialism and development aid.

  • The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

    Story

    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    Ella says: "Just OK"
    "Recommended only for dog fans"
    Overall

    I bought this book because of the positive reviews. I don't know if the people who wrote the positive reviews listened to the same book as I did. For me the book was just boring. If you are a lover of dogs you might like it. I was very disappointed.
