  • In the Tall Grass

    In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

    Story

    I like this story a lot more than than A Face in a Crowd, which was at least a little confusing and at most not one of Kings best works.

    This on the other hand is one of Kings best short stories. I love the flow from one point to the other, the style, insanity, and absurdness of it all. Its terrifying and unnerving.

    Its so damn creative and well done. It brings reality into a the realm of the supernatural, which King does greatly in all of his works, but this one best of all.

    I'm curious as to who is the real driving force here, King or his son Hill? It definitely has King's style, but if this is any hint at Hill;s style, I look forward to his future releases.

    The narration is great to. The performance is great, but a good narration isn't just about how well one performance but also on how well received their voice is. This narrator has a very pleasant voice and fits very well into the story.

    Lang's narration combined with King and Hill's wonderful writing really brought the story to life. More than a few times, I found my self laughing out load, amazed at how real the terror was.

    This could really progress into an excellent novel, but that isn't to say it isn't the perfect length, because as much as I want more of it, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that making it a short story is part of what makes it so damn good.

    Story

    It is a really good book. Grant it, some if it seemed a little slow, but most of it was fast paced and very entertaining.

    There are several cases where sentences repeat. People have noted that it repeats chunks. I have only noticed a repeat sentence or two every few hours in it. It is annoying, but I don't think it is that extreme of a problem. Still, it seems like something easily fixed. I am paying for this audio-book, so I expect it to be top quality. Top quality is more than just audio that doesn't repeat at times; that really is just a part of the basics of a good audio book.
    Now, if i have to settle, why should even bother paying for it when I could just as easily torrent it (possibly even a user fixed version)?

    So fix it!

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Really fun, unless your easily offended, in which case I say grow up or F--k off because I don't really care for the sorts of opinions that demote this brilliant book because it uses dirty language.

    But seriously this is a really good and fun story to listen to.
    And the fact that it was narrated Samuel L Jackson made it all the more richer.

    Story

    Neil Gaiman is an excellent author, and he was able to portray human begins supernatural trends as they change their "gods." From those of the old, to those of the new. Of course, now as we leave the age of darkness and enter the age of reason, more people are shedding of their supernatural beliefs and focusing on the real world. However, they replace these supernatural beings with tv's, credit cards, etc. While they may not be worshiped quiet the same way, they are still exalted like the imaginary gods of the olden days.

    Plus:
    George Guidall is one of my favorite narrators.

  • Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a talent for guiding readers through the mysteries of outer space with stunning clarity and almost childlike enthusiasm. This collection of his essays from Natural History magazine explores a myriad of cosmic topics. Tyson introduces us to the physics of black holes by explaining what would happen to our bodies if we fell into one; he also examines the needless friction between science and religion, and notes Earth's status as "an insignificantly small speck in the cosmos".

    Lind says: "Well written and well read"

    Story

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a unique gift of explaining very complex things in easily understandable ways. On top of that he makes it very interesting and fun to read. If ever you've read a scientific book that is simply all dull facts without any attempt to make it interesting, well this is not that.

    I'd recommend this to anyone interested in the nature of the universe, and thus, the nature of reality itself.

    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.

    He was awesome in Full Dark No Stars, and it's a pleasure to listen to him again!

    And Stephen King is just as magnificent as usual!
