    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.

    Story

    I'm a visual designer. I listen to audiobooks throughout my day while I work. So, to me, a "good" audio book is one that keeps my interest even while I am not focused on it 100%.
    Once I started this ride, I couldn't turn it off. I listeneded in the car, at the gym, and as I went to sleep. Stayed awake until 4am on the 3rd day- just to finish.

    I have sampled ( and rejected) so many audiobooks that promise a "kick-a$$" heroine, but deliver a shrill and unconvincing performance by the narrator. Mulgrew was perfection! I believed every word as Vic, and her performance of Charlie Manx struck just the right creepy chords.

    I'll look for more from Joe Hill. But I think my next purchase may be anything narrated by Mulgrew.

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    wow. and....wow.

    This was a fascinating listen! Footnotes added an additional layer of interest, although the responses from Scientology spokespersons were almost comical in their consistent and collective amnesia. I live in Los Angeles where Scientology has its headquarters and Celebrity Center. I will never again look at this organization the same way again- as sort of wacky, but benign.

    Absolutely worth the credit!

    Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester. One crisp October night, as they watch, a star falls from the sky, and Victoria promises to marry Tristran if he'll retrieve the star and bring it back for her. It is this promise that sends Tristran on the most unforgettable adventure of his life.

    Story

    Neil Gaiman's writing is of such high caliber, that for me, he is a class unto himself. His worlds are wildly creative, unpredictable, yet always anchored in honest emotion. I go back to Stardust time and again as a bedtime story. He narrates this one himself and he is SUPERB here!
