This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    What didn’t you like about Stephen King’s performance?

    Very monotone voice. Previous narrators were great, shouldn't have switched. There is no difference in any of the voices. I have re-listened to all of the series, I won't be on this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story for fans, afraid the narration will scare new listeners from the series.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Story

    I loved the first two books, even with the monotone reader. The third book seemed like a different author with the same setting. I only have one hour left to finish, and I don't care enough to listen to it. It couldn't keep my attention. I miss the old style (the journal entries). The third book is more of a military novel that follows several different but related story lines. I would not recommend this book, even to die hard fans of the first two books. Just google it and read a summary of the novel. I am extremely disappointed in this book, I was so looking forward to listening to it.

    Saturday, 0911 hours — A blast rocks a London hospital and thousands are dead or injured. 1009 hours — Joe Ledger arrives on scene to investigate. The horror is unlike anything he has ever seen. Compelled by grief and rage, Ledger rejoins the Department of Military Sciences, and within hours he's attacked by a hit team of assassins and sent on a suicide mission.

    Story

    There was a lot of politics involved in this issue, i don't know if these are the authors beliefs also, I don't think that this detracted from the story though. Would have to say that the political beliefs stated in the book were by the "evil" villains who wanted to rule the world. I thought it was quite appropriate that those beliefs stated were held by the people who wanted to destroy the world for their own gain. The beliefs weren't stated in a way that implied they were the correct ones, or even held by decent people. I only mention this because several other reviews stated that the political views turned them off from the story. Great story line.

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    John works in his family's mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He wants to be a good person but fears he is a sociopath, and for years he has suppressed his dark side through a strict system of rules designed to mimic "normal" behavior. Then a demon begins stalking his small town and killing people one by one, and John is forced to give in to his darker nature in order to save them.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story itself is very interesting, hard to listen to the narrator. It is suppose to be a fifteen year old, but sounds like he is in thirties ( at least ). The reader is monotone, with an odd speaking pattern (think Terminator crossed with the Twilight Zone speaker). I really wish they would redo the audiobook with another reader.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Allen Nelson’s performances?

    Never.


    Was I Am Not a Serial Killer worth the listening time?

    Yes, even with the awful narration

    A serial killer is hunting the Pacific Northwest, murdering victims in a gruesome and spectacular way. The local police suspect "monsters" are involved, and have called in Anita Blake and Edward, U.S. Marshals who really know their monsters, to catch the killer.

    Kindle Customer says: "Waste of a Credit"
    "Overall a very good book."
    Overall

    Was a good book, enjoy the series. Parts of it are started to get old, it seems most of the conversations with the police are exactly the same as other books. Whoever wrote the book summary apparently didn't actually read the book, had absolutely nothing to do with the book. None of the action involved her home town, and hit men never went for her main lovers. There were a few love scenes, but I was relieved to see that she is steering away from being a romance book. Sex is just fine, but I was getting tired of listening to her whine about her lovers. Good detective story.

    Fifteen-year-old Benny Imura lives in a world infested with zombies where, when a kid turns 15, he must get a job to continue receiving food rations. Benny has no interest in the family business of zombie killing, but figures he doesn’t have much of a choice. He’s tried out a bunch of other jobs, and hasn’t found anything he likes. But as Benny starts training with his brother, he learns things about being human that he never expected.

    Linda B says: "Quality, entertaining story"
    "Okay story, hard to stay interested though."
    Overall

    Narrator did an awesome job. But the story just kind of keeps dragging on, hard to stay listening to it, I find myself missing sections because I get distracted. I read his other book about Joe Ledger, it was great. That is why I gave this a shot. I got half-way through, and just want a cliff notes version to finish up to know what happens. I will say, this could be a great story for some people though. It just didn't entertain me. It has alot of potential because it was a nice twist on an old story.
