    A blood spatter analyst for the Miami police, Dexter has seen his share of gruesome deeds - and committed a few himself. But when he investigates a particularly terrible crime scene at a local university, everything changes.

    James says: "Different Direction"
    "Still a good read"
    Overall

    A little more woo-woo than the first two Dexter adventures, but still a great read. Highly recommend it.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    Tim Curry gives the best reading to this Christmas classic I have ever heard. I re-read (listen) every Christmas and I never tire of his interpretation.

    From out of a shadowy backwoods hollow echoes a dark threat from the past, nearly a century lost and forgotten. The rural town of Harmony, Tennessee, possessed a disturbing secret; a secret so ancient that most of its residents were completely unaware of it. Even the last survivors of a vigilante raid long ago have filed the tragic events of that autumn night away, totally unaware of the evil that remains, dormant, but forever patient, among the tall pines and thick-leaved kudzu of a place known only as Hell Hollow.

    Tabitha says: "AMAZING Southern-fried, coming-of-age horror tale"
    "Aaahhhh, a good story."

    There's such a risk in experimenting with an unfamiliar author. You don't want to leave on a long car trip only to find that your new audiobook is unreadable. Fortunately, Hell Hollow was a pleasure to read.

    Maury has the power to pull dreams into the waking world, giving the dreams corporeal form. These dream-people range from seemingly human figures, to monstrous beasts compelled by the most primal urges. Once exposed to the real world, the dreams evolve, adapting to their surroundings. Maury is gathering dreams for display at Lucidity, the soon-to-open Museum of Dreams. From a boy named Kevin, he removes Mr. Freakshow, a nightmare feeding on the trauma of Kevin having recently witnessed his father's murder.

    What did you like best about The Nightmare Within? What did you like least?

    The story itself was satisfactory. The premise is interesting--extracting dreams from their dreamers and giving them reality. Good buildup of tension ad suspense.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Glen Krisch? Why or why not?

    Not without a preview to see if he has cleared up his problems with correct usage of words.


    Which character – as performed by Troy Duran – was your favorite?

    N/A


    Do you think The Nightmare Within needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, the story is complete, and the characters have finished their story arc.


    Any additional comments?

    My only beef was that Krish has a serious problem with language. He frequently uses words incorrectly. For example, "entail" for "recount." as in, "He entailed the events he had just experienced."
    Or "His hands scrambled up the wall." Hands can't scramble. A person can scramble.
    Or "Feelings bandied about in his mind."
    Lots of things like that where the word doesn't quite fit. Straining a little too hard for colorful and interesting language.

    Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.

    Story

    This is one of my all-time favorite go-to Christmas stories. It's funny, irreverent and somehow captures all the elements that make up a perfect Christmas story. It's got angels, Santa Claus, transformations, love, changes of heart, sacrifices, a warrior babe, a brave dog, a talking fruit bat and--what no Christmas story should be without--zombies.

    I'm a Christmas freak, and this story satisfies all my Christmas cravings. I've listened to it every Christmas for at least five years, and I still laugh out loud, causing Christmas shoppers in the mall to assiduously avoid eye contact.
