    Raised in a loving Catholic family in Denver, Martin Moran was a star student who imagined that he’d one day become a U.S. senator. When he was twelve years old, a camp counselor seduced him, initiating a sexual relationship that would last three years - and haunt Moran’s life for decades. He discovered a passion for acting and built a career that would take him to Broadway, but only when Moran finally tracked down and confronted his abuser thirty years later could he finally forgive himself for someone’s else trespass.

    Story

    I was very moved by this story and felt for this man and what he had been through. I went through a very hard time in my life a few years back and I still feel that I have not gotten over it. I listen to personal memoirs where there is a lot of pain in the authors life to show myself that people have gone through a hell of a lot worse than I have and can still make it in life. I was amazed that the author could still laugh a little during some parts of the story. You could tell he was remembering that part of his life when he laughed, it was a natural laugh and was not part of the script. Stories like this give me hope for the future and I am grateful to the author for sharing his story.

    Seven hours into the book and I am waiting for the scary parts to start. I have no clue how this book got a 3.9 rating.

    The Dead Path tells the gripping story of a broken man, Nicholas Close. A terrible accident has left him a widower and awoken in him the ability to see the dead. Now, he can’t escape visions of tortured spirits, their last moments caught in horrible, endlessly replaying loops. Nicholas leaves London and returns to Australia, where he is disturbed to see that a heavily treed tract of land in his childhood suburb has somehow escaped development.

    Good book, it was similar to The Broken Ones but I liked that book also. I'm glad I took a chance on Stephen Irwin.

    For 25 years, civilization has survived in meager enclaves, guarded against a plague of the dead. Temple wanders this blighted landscape, keeping to herself and keeping her demons inside her heart. She can’t remember a time before the zombies, but she does remember an old man who took her in and the younger brother she cared for until the tragedy that set her off on her personal journey toward redemption.

    Story

    The story was good, but I didn't like the narrator. I didn't like the voices she used and the main character did not sound believable. I know the main character was supposed to be 16 but she sounded 10.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Not as good as some of his other books, but still an O.K. read. Didn't like the narrator, had that raspy smokers voice.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    Story

    This was the first Stephen King book that I ever read. I was in middle school when I read this book and found my favorite author. I think I liked this story because I could relate to some of the characters, and because when I read this book the first time the monsters could still hide under the sheet and kids still had the magic to destroy the monsters. Now the monsters fly passenger jets into buildings or kill their families and eat their bodies because they think God told them to, as the 10 o'clock news keeps reminding us. I didn't have time to read this book again so I got it here at Audible and it was great to relive this story again. The only problem I had was the reading of stuttering Bill's part, it could g-g-get so irritating having to listen to that on and off for 44+ hours.
