    Many millennia ago, the human race was enslaved by the An - a fearsome alien people whose cruel empire once spanned the galaxies, until they were defeated and consigned to oblivion. But a research mission to the planet Ishtar has made a terrifying - and fatal - discovery: The Ahanu, ancestors of the former masters, live on, far from the reach of Earth - born weapons and technology ... and tens of thousands of captive human souls still bow to their iron will.

    DocJim says: "OK story, quite different (or weird) in many spots"
    "WORST NARRATION I HAVE YET TO HEAR"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one is going to enjoy this book if they have ever spent anytime as or around a Marine. I like the story, and I have loved the other books in this cycle but Mr. Drummond ruined this for me. A tip to any voice actor out there, learn the pronunciation of the lingo. Lejeune, is not pronounced LEJURNE, there is no invisible R! Lejeune is pronounces le-joon. As for UHRAH , there is no leading H! As for the range and inflection of the reader, its almost as bad as his pronunciation.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    PRONUNCIATION learn the lingo of the group the book is aimed at.

  • Doctor Sleep: A Novel

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    D says: "The sequel to the book; not the movie"
    "Thanks to our dear and faithfull writer."

    If you could sum up Doctor Sleep in three words, what would they be?

    Classic, Balanced, King. Mr. King keeps spinning yarns that just seem to have an ability to grab you and drag you along.


    Any additional comments?

    The world has moved on and Danny Torrance with it.
