    Best-selling novelist Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich is a lucky man and he knows it. He makes a handsome living doing what he enjoys. His wife, Penny, a children's book author and illustrator, is the love of his life. Together they have a brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed "Spooky," and a non-collie named Lassie, who's all but part of the family. So Cubby knows he shouldn't let one bad review of his otherwise triumphant new book get to him.

    "Ridiculous story"
    Overall

    I really like Koontz but I think this may be a bottom of the barrel scraper to keep Koontz' editors happy. I wished I would have listened to my gut reaction and stopped listening because this story was so ridiculous that it was ignorant. It borderlines on Big Brother mentality which some may enjoy.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    The author got it right when he hired Samuel L. Jackson to narrate this short story. I laughed until I cried.

    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    King is a master in his craft and I really enjoyed this book. I'm still in awe of King after all these years.

    Dexter Morgan appears to be the perfect gentleman. He is handsome and polite, and has been in a relationship for nearly a year and a half. Yet appearances can be deceiving, for Dexter is a serial killer who has slain many people. But in this tale, he's the good guy, for there is one little twist: Dexter only snuffs out other murderers. When another serial killer, with an eerily similar style, starts grabbing headlines, Dexter has a fairly morbid thought. Am I being challenged?

    I don't what was worse: the story or the narration. I'm not sure why it received good reviews but I hope this review saves someone some money.

    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.

    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    Stephen King is the best storytelling author of them all and this time he had a decent ending. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of King's but every since the Dark Tower series and its awful ending, I savor the stories but dread the endings until now. On one hand, this story is a little far fetched but on the other hand, I live in small town and it has made me think twice about being ready for a disaster. Doesn't everyone know a James Renny (sp?)? This story definitely plants King's paranoia roots pretty deep. But what do you expect from a little gonja, either past or present?
