    From Chicago Horror author Wayne Allen Sallee comes this collection of zombie stories, told in the way only Sallee can - brutal, stark, filled with pain.

    A community in the southwestern United States falls prey to a plague of vampire bats with a virus which compels them to feed on everything in their path. Martin Cruz Smith, author of the best-selling novels, Gorky Park and Polar Star, mixes Indian mythology with virology in this masterful thriller.

    Story

    While this is a novel from 1977 it does not come off as dated. Its story is solid, its characters are interesting, and the pace is just right for a nature horror story.

    It has been 40 years since the publication of this classic science-fiction novel that changed the way we look at the stars and ourselves. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man adventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other.

    The movie was incomprehensible without the book as reference. With the book, the movie is pretty, if pretentious. I recommend the book highly and Dick Hill does an excellent job of narration.

    Consummate master of his craft, Stephen King has kept millions awake past midnight shivering at tales that probe the shadows and reveal the dark side. Now listeners can chill to this second dramatic unabridged production of short stories from his best selling book, Night Shift. It brings Stephen King's demonic stories fully to life - and the terror even closer to home.

    Kelley says: "Overall good investment"
    "Classic King"

    These are the "oldies but goodies" of the King short stories. I wish Night Shift was all in one volume but the production values are well worth the cost.

    The creator and executive producer of Everybody Loves Raymond dissects the art of comedy and the making of a sitcom classic. In television, where programs can premiere and disappear in the same week, Everybody Loves Raymond reigned as America's best-loved show for nine years with more than 17 million viewers. As the number-one sitcom, it received more than 70 Emmy nominations, including two wins for best comedy.

    Margaret Campbell says: "For Raymond Lovers"
    "Very Informative and hilarious to boot!"

    Story

    Wrapped in a memoir is a wealth of information about how TV works (or worked during the Raymond years). I love the fact that instead of quoting from speeches he's given, the book contains the actual recordings of the speeches themselves. Well done, Mr. Rosenthal, well done.

    Sit back, turn the lights down low, and get ready for the scare of your life, with five bloodcurdling short stories from 31 Horrifying Tales from the Dead, told by Drac Von Stoller. "Campfire Tales", "Captain Bloody Bones", "Curse of the Evil Fairies Fort", "The Garden of the Dead", and "The Inheritance" will have your hair standing on end!

    Would you try another book from Drac Von Stoller and/or Michael Adashefski?

    no


    What was most disappointing about Drac Von Stoller???s story?

    I'm not certain for whom this was written. I'd expect such thin repetitive stories from a 10 year old but I would never pay money for them (again). Even young adult horror stories can be fun but these are neither well written nor fun. I feel like the victim of a terrible hoax.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Given the material, the narrator could never have polished these stories into gems but I get the impression he was trying to hide bad writing with enthusiastic overacting. I started to think this whole thing was a poorly done parody.


    What character would you cut from 5 Short Stories from '31 Horrifying Tales from the Dead'?

    There are no characters, just barely described undeveloped actors in bad drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I can usually find something nice to say because an author and a narrator deserve a certain amount of respect for completing a work of art but this is just bad.

    Would you listen to The Serial Killer Whisperer again? Why?

    Yes. the story was captivating and kept my interest throughout.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Obviously Tony is the protagonist but I thought his dad was interesting as well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Digging in the orange grove, just so well written.


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

    Not necessarily. The letters to/from the killers were good places to stop and reflect.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Earley's book

  • Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

    Myths and hypotheses about Area 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Others believe that the lunar landing was filmed there. The prevalence of these rumors stems from the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now.

    A User says: "Reality, always more interesting than fiction."
    "Very entertaining"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was worried about the quality of the author's narration but was pleasantly surprised.

  • Terrorism on American Soil: Plots and Perpetrators from the Famous to the Forgotten

    The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, led most American citizens to feel that we are no longer safe and secure in our communities. However, terrorism is not a new phenomenon in the United States. This book chronicles 37 such assaults on American soil from the end of the Civil War to the present day. Not only are the most infamous attacks discussed; events that are obscure and relatively unknown - but fascinating nonetheless - are detailed as well.

    Kent says: "Solid Information - Poor Audio"
    "Excellent book, sub-par narration"
    Overall

    The author as narrator manages to turn an interesting book into a rather dull-sounding lecture.

    It would only have taken a professional narrator to turn this into a 5 star rating. In its present state I'd give it a marginal "recommend" rating.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Glenda Jeffers says: "Riveting but brutal"
    "great Great GREAT !"
    Overall

    I liked "Sharp Objects" but I love this book. It starts out strong and just keeps hitting you. I highly recommend this book if you want an engaging thriller.
