    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.

    Story

    I was really into this story-beautifully written, interesting characters- then it just ended.

    What the beep?

    So I'm left to ponder what happened to all these people, and what was the real point of the book. I get it, I guess, but I seriously had no idea that the book was about to end when the "audible hopes you've enjoyed this program" came on. I wanted more! wahh!

    Dolores Claiborne's elderly employer dies suddenly, apparently from falling down a flight of stairs. This tragedy sparks memories of the day Dolores' husband died...the day of the total eclipse. Suspected by police and townspeople alike, she delivers a story of a disintegrating marriage, and the breaking point reached by a docile woman.

    I really loved this book-- mystery, murder, creepiness, a bunch of surprises, a couple of grumpy old ladies. This reader is amazing too- seriously one of the best audio performances I've heard.

    Definitely well worth a credit- an all around enjoyable listen.

    I haven't touched another person in three years.That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet. My anonymous clients spend thousands of dollars to watch me take my clothes off for the camera. What they want, I give. Their secrets, I keep. Everything I tell them is a lie. Open the door to this year's most shocking thriller.

    Story

    Kind of ridiculous, but still a fun listen. I bought this title because it was in Audible's list: "The Next Gone Girl?", this was much more predictable than Gone Girl- still had a few surprises.

    This book is listed in Mysteries & Thrillers> Suspense, but should probably be Mysteries & Thrillers > Suspense > Erotica. Will the "virgin" cyber sex star with serious psychological issues of her own become a hero? And will she find true love? And if all that happens- can she save herself?

    Well I'm not telling :)

    A boy literally disappears from Main Street. A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. An audacious bank robbery goes seriously wrong: four cops are gunned down; a TV news helicopter is shot and spins crazily out of the sky, triggering a disastrous cascade of events that ricochet across twenty different lives over the course of just thirty-six hours. Nick Kavanaugh, a cop with a dark side, investigates.

    Stephen King tweeted about how much he liked this book and The Homecoming, so of course I bought it right away! I really liked the story- crime mixed with supernatural elements I guess you could say--but the reader- sorry- just so breathy and sing songy- probably right or some stories, but not for this one.

    So I don't know- maybe try the sample and see if you're ok with the reader before you buy it- or try the book. I see the next one is read by someone else so fingers crossed for a better outcome.

    Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty's thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.

    I have seen this movie- who hasn't? But I saw it when I was a teenager and didn't remember much aside from the grosser parts of the film. The book was a surprise- not really a horror book at all, sure it was really creepy in parts- and there were lots of gross bits, but more of a character study with a lot of good vs.evil. I thought it was really interesting --very well written and William Peter Blatty did such a great job reading. He really brought the characters to life. So glad that I listened!

    She is a housewife: young, healthy, blissfully happy. He is an actor: charismatic and ambitious. The spacious, sun-filled apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side is their dream home, a dream that turns into an unspeakable nightmare. Enter the chilling world of Ira Levin, where terror is as near as your new neighbors and where evil wears the most innocent face of all.

    What a really sucky thing to happen to a nice girl :) I haven't seen this movie so the story was a surprise for me, and although there are a lot of clues as to what's going to happen, the ending was kind of insane- baffling really! Fun listen- I didn't find it scary, but tense sometimes and Mia Farrow was great reading it.

    Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder, coworkers at The Courier, know the newspaper monitors their office e-mail. But they still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers, and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can’t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period. Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill still can’t believe that it’s his job to monitor other people’s e-mail.

    Pretty much the sunniest, happiest, cheesiest and most romantic comedy in the the whole world. So adorable...

    Now, I know, we're not always in the mood for such sentiment and happiness and giddy jumping around, but if you're in the mood- this is a good one. Now I'm moving on to Rosemary's Baby to undo some of this :)

    on a side note- I love Audible's Daily Deals- try something new for cheap!

    I am a "constant reader" and often get on Stephen King kicks- I can't believe I hadn't visited this book yet. Really scary-and in a way that you think- man, that could happen maybe- could that happen? Are there ghosts like that? I loved the characters and will miss them and I even loved SK reading- and sometimes I don't :)

    Patrick Bateman moves among the young and trendy in 1980s Manhattan. Young, handsome, and well educated, Bateman earns his fortune on Wall Street by day while spending his nights in ways we cannot begin to fathom. Expressing his true self through torture and murder, Bateman prefigures an apocalyptic horror that no society could bear to confront.

Beached like a whale in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally rolls into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before really going belly-up.

    I started this book a couple of months ago, stopped, started, stopped, started- it was pretty sad in the beginning, and I couldn't stay with it.

    BUT when I came back to it a third time nicer things started happening. I can't remember exactly what Mr. Pucci says, but something about finding happiness and letting yourself be happy. That's pretty nice. I ended up really enjoying this book and the characters (except for a few characters who remained real jerks). ha :)

    Oh- and there was something that comes back around towards the end of the book which is fun- I thought- "gah- should have seen that coming", but it happened so long ago it didn't register until she mentioned it, but it was a great element to the story.
