    A handful of people. From different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them, drawing them to the Tranquility Motel - where the terrifying truth was waiting.

    "You gotta get this book"
    Overall

    I'm a huge Koontz fan, trying to read his books as soon as they hit the streets. I have thought "In the Corner of his Eye" was my all time favorite but "Strangers" comes a close second. The characterizations are awesome, you really get to know each and every one of the people whose story he is telling. They are living breathing folks that you come to care deeply about and to cheer on when things go so amiss for them. I miss these guys now that I've finished the book and wonder often how their lives would progree.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "A new Believer"
    Overall

    I must admit I haven't been a big King fan in the past but this book, Under the Dome, has truly made me a believer. His characters are astonishingly human, his bads guys evil almost to their very core, and his descriptions made this story come totally alive. It took me 2 weeks to "listen" to this book and I was enthralled each and every step of the way. His story never lets you down. I shall definitely be "listening" to more King soon.

  • Gun Shy: A Blanco County Mystery

    Story

    The National Weapons Alliance is holding a rally in Blanco County, and it's being headlined by country music star Mitch Campbell. But Campbell's a fraud and someone's set to expose him. A humorous take on a touchy subject, Gun Shy is a sly lampoon of both sides of the gun debate.

    "A MUST for Mystery Lovers"
    Overall

    I have listened to oodles of audiobooks but this one is a DOOZY. If you like Carl Hiaasen's writing you're going to LOVE Ben Rehder. His characters are memorable and his story has twists and turns, and a few belly laughs, that will keep you glued to your ear phones. I had to explain to people around me what I found some dang funny. Give it a shot, you'll be glad you did
