    Vampires have officially "come out of the coffin", and Miss Sookie can't wait for one to come her way.

    I enjoyed this book so much. I found Sookie to be not only resourceful and smart, but charming and entertaining. Can't wait for more!

    It’s zombie versus zombie as the Saberton Corporation declares war against the Zombie Mafia, kidnapping several of their party. It falls to Angel to lead the remnants of her gang halfway across the country to claw their way through corporate intrigue, zombie drugs, and undead trafficking to rescue her friends - and expose the traitor responsible for their abduction.

    What did you love best about How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back?

    Angel is totally adorable, adventurous, and smarter than she thinks. She thinks of herself as less than average, but she comes up with solutions to problems that would never have crossed my mind!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just listening to Angel adapt to her situation.


    What does Allison McLemore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love her southern accent. I'm from the south, too, and we actually talk like that.


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

    Yes, but I couldn't. I did finish it in two days, though!


    Any additional comments?

    Funny spin on the usual zombie tale, so start at the beginning of the series!

In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime.

    What made the experience of listening to Dead Ever After the most enjoyable?

    All the loose ends were neatly tied up. I like that in a series.


    What other book might you compare Dead Ever After to and why?

    Sookie stands alone. No one comes close.


    What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has the most amazing tones and inflections. You can literally "see" what she is talking about!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Totally satisfied with the ending, and the man of Sookie's choice. I had kind of expected it, I knew they were perfect for each other.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Undead and Underwater to be better than the print version?

    Never "read" it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Betsy, of course. Fred was also interesting.


    Which character – as performed by Nancy Wu – was your favorite?

    Again, I gotta say Betsy. I love her.


    Any additional comments?

    Anything written by MJD entitled "Undead..." SHOULD BE TOTALLY ABOUT BETSY AND HER ENTOURAGE. I'm just sayin'...

    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.

    Would you listen to NOS4A2 again? Why?

    Yes, but not any time soon. It is a haunting tale that I want to savor a while before I delve back into the drama.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was twisted and convuleted, kept me guessing.


    What about Kate Mulgrew’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job with the different voices. You could tell which character was speaking without being told. I like that in a narrator.


    If you could take any character from NOS4A2 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Vic. She is one tough b#$%&!


    Any additional comments?

    Get it, read it. It is not as good as Heart Shaped Box (which I highly reccomend - it is an amazing book) but MUCH better than Horns. Joe Hill is the son of Stephen King (my all time favorite author), so you really can't go wrong. The apple doesn't fall, etc...

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    The real Who Dunnit, tracing the path back to the real murdered.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Great tone and inflection.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At times, I was horrified by the brutal reality.

    Absolutely loved it, and I will check out other books by this author.

    When brilliant archaeologist Dilara Kenner is contacted by Sam Watson, an old family friend who says that he has crucial information about her missing father, Dilara abandons her Peruvian dig and rushes to Los Angeles to meet him. But at the airport, Sam speaks instead of Noah’s Ark—the artifact her father had long been searching for—and the possible death of billions. Before Sam can explain, he collapses. With his dying breath, he urges Dilara to find Tyler Locke—a man she’s never heard of.

    The story was good, but it went on and on and on... You get the picture.


    What could Boyd Morrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book had way too much back story that didn't seem necessary to me. The ark is mentioned throughout, but only explored at the very end. Too much going on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the found the jewel room on the arc.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, but way too much back story that didn't seem necessary to me.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Yes, though I was disappointed with the opening scene. It was not what I had anticipated.

    What disappointed you about Ghoul Interrupted?

    This book was not at all interesting to me. I did not like the setting or the story line. It was no where near as interesting as the other


    Has Ghoul Interrupted turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I generally enjoy a paranormal novel.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This novel just failed to engage me in the least.

    Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate. Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his mother's life. Now he's a priest who lives by a law of love and compassion. It is powerful men and hypocrites who abide by legal law but eschew the law of love that most incense Danny. As an avenging angel, he believes it is his duty to show them the error of their ways, at any cost. Renee Gilmore is the frail and helpless victim of one such powerful man....

    Jerry says: "Excellent idea. Poor execution."
    "Exciting!"
    Overall

    Captivating from the very first few minutes. Though I wonder if Ted Dekker is a Dexter fan?
