    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico.

But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels, NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help.

    What made the experience of listening to Two Graves the most enjoyable?

    Preston and Child pull out all the stops on this one. The novel takes in many unexpected directions and (almost) wraps it all up nicely.


    Any additional comments?

    Who was the second grave for?

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If there was an award for best narration of all time it must go to Steven Weber.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It?

    This book "It" is probably one of Stephen King's best, and Weber gives it the due it deserves.

    Tom Clancy's most shocking story to date - and closer to reality than any government would care to admit. John Clark, newly named head of an international task force dedicated to combating terrorism, faces a terrorist group so extreme that their success could literally mean the end of life on this earth as we know it.

    What would have made Rainbow Six better?

    I have been listening the Tom Clancy novels that I originally read when they were release as real books, and they mostly hold up fairly well. I thought I remember Rainbow 6 as one of my favorites. Listening to the abridged version, if this was my first encounter with Tom Clancy, would have turned me off forever. All character development, plot lines,detailed background storie and intertwining plots have been stripped out. All that is left is a smilingly nonstop series of shoot-em-ups. The reader is fine, as usual, but has been done to this novel is an atrocious shame. Tom Clancy is much better than this, and needs to be made aware of what is being done to his work.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    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.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The pace of the story was just about right, aided by the careful charater development blended with the meticulous attention to detail Kind renders for the 50's and 60's


    Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I listened to any of his other work. I would have remembered.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was hard to stop listening but I knew it was a long one. Even still, I would sit in the driveway when I got home, listening for a while before I had to finally go inside.

  • World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

    Story
    (3639)

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Steve says: "Good but Too Short!"
    "Too much hype"
    Overall

    First, let me say that my issue with this book may be the fact that it is the abridged version. It seems like a collection of stories loosely collected with large gaps taking place between the chapters. Second, the hype I read before purchasing this book created expectations in my mind that the book did not live up to. Third, the premise of the book is an intriguing one, and the not so subtle analogies to today's politics are the best part of this story. Interesting concept, could have been a much better listen if regular narrators were used so that the unabridged version could have been created.

    Story
    (456)

    In lower Manhattan, a charnel pit of horror is uncovered: the remains of 36 people murdered and gruesomely dismembered over 130 years ago by an unknown serial killer. Just as a museum archaeologist and an enigmatic FBI agent begin to unravel the clues to the killings, a fresh spree of copy-cat murders and surgical mutilation erupts around them. Mixing science and terror in a way only they can, Preston and Child deliver a novel that's as gruesome as it is enthralling.

    Dianna says: "This Book is a True Curiosity!!"
    "Too short and no indication it was abridged"
    Overall

    I enjoy all of the Pedrergast novels, but this one was a little off-putting in the beginning. It seemed like it was being rushed along without the usual detailed background of a Child-Preston novel. When I figured out it was an abridged version it made sense. Highly recommend only reading the unabridged versions. The imense detail these guys provide really makes for a compete experience. Good story, in any case.
