    When a plague strikes, Anchorage becomes a deadly trap for its citizens. The only two land routes out of the city are cut, forcing people to fight or die as the infection spreads. Danny and Jules, just children, witness the beginning stages of the pestilence. Neil watches helplessly from his office cubicle as Midtown is ravaged. Dr. Caldwell attempts to flee the madness of Providence Hospital, the epicenter of the outbreak. The lives and survival of these few become intertwined in the aftermath of the onslaught.

    This novel needed people with common sense and a faster plot. I found myself not really caring for any of the characters, except the children (who didn't get to do much in the book). The last straw for me is when they abandoned the dog to the undead, not wanting to take him in the getaway car!!!!! If you want good, suspensful and funny zombie books, try Mark Tufo's Zombie Apocalypse series.

    A sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of town, is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls. When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.

    The author is obsessed with descriptions of sexually degrading/hard core porn. He seems to relish describing in explicit details, not just sex, but of women being abused sexually. Instead of describing hard core porn in broad terms, he describes the minutiae with seeming gusto. He is also fascinated by the biological culmination of a man's arousal. Not only men. He also loves the odd mating behaviors of bedbugs, which also culminates with the males ripping open the females.

    At the end of the book, my ears and brain needed decontamination!

    Catherine "Cat" Ferry is a forensic odontologist, a specialist in bite marks and the clues they provide. But while Cat's colleagues know her as a world-class scientist, she secretly attempts to manage her fragile psyche with alcohol, delving into the minds of rapists and murderers yet never allowing her own frightening past to creep into the foreground.

    If you can get around the HORRIBLE southern accents of the narrator (and also mispronunciations of scientific terms) then the book is pretty good. First part is slow, but the second and third parts go so fast that it's worth it.

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Barbara says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"
    "20 hours and NO resolution!"

    Would you listen to In the Woods again? Why?

    NO.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tana French? Why or why not?

    Maybe.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very well written and quickly pulls you in. Yet, by the end of the book, the author has raised more questions than answers. SPOILER ALERT....At the end, not only is Ryan is in worse shape than at the beginning (don't ask me how this is possible), he has self-destructed. I don't really feel like reading 5 more books to see if Ryan gets his act together or not. If Tana French wasn't going to have ANY resolution in 20 hours, then I doubt she'll have any in 4 more books. It's a shame, because I really like how she writes.

    The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan's Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

    Story kept me interested to the end. Ron Perlman added a gravitas to the reading, making it stand out from other books. From looking at other reviews, you love him or hate him as the narrator. I give it two thumbs up.
