    Robert McCammon brings the hero of his previous novel, Matthew Corbett, to 18th-century New York, where a killer wields a bloody and terrifying power over a bustling city carving out its identity - and over Matthew's own uncertain destiny.

    The unsolved murder of a respected doctor has sent ripples of fear throughout a city teeming with life and noise and commerce. Who snuffed out the good man's life with the slash of a blade on a midnight street? The local printmaster has labeled the fiend "the Masker," adding fuel to a volatile mystery...

    Where does The Queen of Bedlam rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Queen of Bedlam would rank in the middle of the audiobooks that I've listenen to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matthew Corbett was my favorite character because he is driven to find the truth and goes all out to do so even if it means putting himself in danger. I think that his character should "man" up though and make his role as avenger more realistic.


    What about Edoardo Ballerini’s performance did you like?

    Edoardo Ballerini makes the characters come alive.


    If you could take any character from The Queen of Bedlam out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would like to take Matthew Corbett to dinner and explain to him that being an unassuming guy is ok, but in a pinch and in grave danger he should know how to defend himself and those he is helping realistically instead of like a scared girl.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a good listen. I did like "Speaks the Nightbird" better than "The Queen of Bedlam" but would still recomend the book.

  • The Caine Mutiny

    Having inspired a classic film and Broadway play, The Caine Mutiny is Herman Wouk's boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life—and mutiny—on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater. It was immediately embraced upon its original publication as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of the Second World War. In the intervening half century, this gripping story has become a perennial favorite, selling millions throughout the world, and claiming the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

    Would you listen to The Caine Mutiny again? Why?

    The Caine Mutiny was an interesting read. I'm not big on military novels but this one kept me listening.

    At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It’s the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who’s supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play “paratroopers over the side”. Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his 10th birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out.

    Story

    As always Stephen King has a twisted spin on a story. I'v not listen or read a book by him that I did not like. His story line is just left of center enough, and as syfy goes, just maybe could be believable as real. Great author!!

    The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    I love listening to Will Patton, he makes a story come alive and you want the story to go on and on.. The book is a great listen, and even though written in the 1950's is still a real possibility today.. I highly recomend it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Overall

    This book is one of the best that I have listened to. A great story of one man's will to live and not be broken by opression. I would recomend it to anyone who want's to listen to a great story.
