    Story

    The Thief is a seasoned pickpocket. Anonymous in his tailored suit, he weaves in and out of Tokyo crowds, stealing wallets from strangers so smoothly that sometimes he doesn't even remember the snatch. Most people are just a blur to him; nameless faces from whom he chooses his victims. He has no family, no friends, no connections.... But he does have a past, which finally catches up with him when Ishikawa, his first partner, reappears in his life and offers him a job he can't refuse.

    Would you try another book from Fuminori Nakamura and Satoko Izumo (translator) and/or Charlie Thurston?

    Not sure, would need to be in the mood. I think something got missed in the translation.


    Would you recommend The Thief to your friends? Why or why not?

    No


    What three words best describe Charlie Thurston’s voice?

    common, indistinct and plain


    Could you see The Thief being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Could be a better moving than book / audiobook

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15646)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "One of my favorite King Novels"

    Story
    (1887)

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    Vanessa says: "OK but not her best by a long shot"
    "Enjoyed from start to finish"

    Story
    (29)

    In his blockbuster new book Rollback, New York Times best-selling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., offers the first critical analysis of the 2010 midterm elections and answers the number-one question on conservatives’ minds: How do we roll back the liberal policies and big government programs that Obama/Pelosi/Reid rushed through Congress before the midterms?

    Kenneth says: "A neccesary book in difficult times."
    "Excellent Listen, terrifying and thought provoking"
