    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Would you try another book from Charlaine Harris and/or Johanna Parker?

    Johanna Parker is a terrific narrator on this series. The series, however, has really become mundane. I am not normally a quitter. I read ALL the books in a series. But this was the last of this series I will suffer through.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nothing interesting happened.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deadlocked?

    I would have passed on this book... too boring, for even the most die-hard fan!


    Any additional comments?

    This series needs to die a quick death!!!

  • One Second After

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 21 mins)

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    What did you love best about One Second After?

    As someone who does a fair amount of "prepping" I found this book to be refreshing. A lot of books focusing of The End Of The World As We Know It usually have such glaring flaws (abundant water, food, shelter, and generators). Not this book. The author covered long term things that I had not considered. This could be used as prepping guide. Pretty good!!!


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

    You can feel the anguish in the narrator's voice when the main character is forced to do things that he wouldn't do in a modern world.


    Any additional comments?

    The only negative to me was that the main character though retired military, had too much influence in town decisions and had too much knowledge for someone who wasn't overly prepared. But this was probably necessary to fill in the blanks for someone who has less understanding of what could happen. Overall, though, this is the best thought-out work of fiction for this topic that I have ever read.
