    These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These first-hand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events.

    Meet Dolores Price. She's 13, wise-mouthed but wounded, having bid her childhood goodbye. Beached like a whale in front of her bedroom TV, she spends the next few years nourishing herself with the Mallomars, potato chips, and Pepsi her anxious mother supplies. When she finally rolls into young womanhood at 257 pounds, Dolores is no stronger and life is no kinder. But this time she's determined to rise to the occasion and give herself one more chance before really going belly-up.

    What made the experience of listening to Pretty Little Killers the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it looked at the crime from everyones angle that was involved. I played out like a story.... it made you fall in love and almost forget it was real. It was truly amazing summery of events.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Knowing that it was real. Finding out the truth behind each girl. The Media really name Sheila and Rachel look a lot different then who they were..... Sheila is truly evil!


    Which character – as performed by Pam Ward – was your favorite?

    You cant pick a favourite in this kind of book.... You fall in love with Skylar, who she was and the legacy she left behind. I do feel the smallest amount of sympathy for Racheal as i went to school with a girl that couldn't remind me more of her. When your that young you can lose reality.... I think she got caught up in something wanting to impress..... and got lost along that way... but what she did was wrong and she got the punishment she deserved.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead....


    Any additional comments?

    I truly think this book deserves more publicity... These things are happening more and more. More girls need to read this.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

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

    I have personally bought around 250 audio books and this book tops all! It was a complete master piece. I usually dont even listen to this kind of book, but found myself completely absorbed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything from the voices to the real candid events. The whole story was so well researched and the plot was amazing. i loved taking a step into the characters lives.


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

    The narrators really brought so much life to the story. I love the accents. i think possibly the voices help you keep track of which chapter is which character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I almost did! in 2 days I listened to the whole book. My husband was laughing at me, as i started talking with a southern accent!


    Any additional comments?

    I just cant express enough how truly amazing this book it. It make me cry laugh and think about it long after it was over. It is different from the movie which made it a real treat. No movie can do justice to the book but, just wow. this book is worth the full price of credit i already want to re-start it! THANKS AUDIBLE!

    Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year's Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nut jobs. Clearly, this is all a huge mistake. Forget about the bandages on his wrists and the notes on his chart. Forget about his problems with his best friend, Allie, and her boyfriend, Burke. Jeff's perfectly fine, perfectly normal, not like the other kids in the hospital with him. Now they've got problems.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would say. the beginning really held my attention but the dramatic twists took me to a un-organic place. It almost felt like the author choose those twists uncomfortably.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    That would be spoiling it!


    What three words best describe Joe Caron’s performance?

    He was very good and he did really do a good job at pulling you in. he has a very easy voice to listen too.


    Do you think Suicide Notes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. It would be nice to see how the main character used what he learned about himself in the real world.


    Any additional comments?

    worth the credit. I think this is a great book for those struggling with their sexuality.

    Siler House has stood silent beneath Savannah’s moss-draped oaks for decades. Notoriously haunted, it has remained empty until college-bound Jess Perry and three of her peers gather to take part in a month-long study on the paranormal. Able to talk to ghosts, Jess quickly bonds with her fellow test subjects, who have their own “gifts.” One is possessed. Another just wants to forget. The third is a guy who knows how to turn up the August heat, not to mention Jess’s heart rate…when he’s not resurrecting the dead.

    Would you try another book from Michelle Muto and/or Tavia Gilbert?

    No, the story seemed incomplete and they make twists that dont seem organic to the situations occurring.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I tend to only stick to haunting books. So i will be re-listening to the demonologist!


    How could the performance have been better?

    It was okay but you could sense through the narrator she was having a hard time with the story line.


    What character would you cut from The Haunting Season?

    Both Boys


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like this book might be for some. I would defiantly say if your an experienced ghost book listener dont waste your credit on this one.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main lady ! I adore her quirkiness that cant compare to all usuals in this genre!


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

    She really knows how to bring a story to life. Her voice is so fun and young. It really draws you in. I honestly choose this book because of her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really.

    It is almost worth the credit. If you like vampire diaries this really reminds me of that at times.

Caroline and her husband Neil search for answers as they try to protect their family from the unseen entity that seems determined to rip them apart. The biggest question looms over them like a dark cloud ... who is going to help us?

    The entity! - Along with its scary moments i truly enjoyed the humorous moments comuicated.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment that moved me was their opinions on all the people they had come through. When dealing with a haunting people are desperate for everyones opinions. I love how the characters were able to call bull-^%$ on a few!

    Emma Putnam is dead, and it's all Sara Wharton's fault. At least, that's what everyone seems to think. Sara, along with her best friend and three other classmates, has been criminally charged for the bullying and harassment that led to Emma's shocking suicide. Now Sara is the one who's ostracized, already guilty according to her peers, the community, and the media. During the summer before her senior year, in between meetings with lawyers and a court-recommended therapist, Sara is forced to reflect on the events that brought her to this moment - and ultimately consider her role in an undeniable tragedy.

    What made the experience of listening to Tease the most enjoyable?

    It really told the other side of the story. Headlines always make the "bully" out to be a monster. It was amazing to step back and sympathize with Sarah. Also the narrator really ran with this and made for a real easy listening experiance.


    What other book might you compare Tease to and why?

    I would compare 13 reasons why and hold still. 13 reasons why is a book about tapes left behind by a girl who took her life. explaining why she did so. It also lets you see into the other side of the story. Hold still is about a journal left behind by ingrid helping her best friend understand why she could not go on. both these books are available on audible and are my top picks


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

    Sarah the main character. She shows how scared and strong she can be taking all one step at a time.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I almost did! the only reason I took a break was because I didn't want it to be over yet! Cant wait to listen again


    Any additional comments?

    I would strongly suggest this book to anyone. It is so worth the price or credit. it is a game changer and really changed my outlook on a lot of things..... beautiful <3
