    June 1984. Timmy Graco is looking forward to summer vacation, taking it easy and hanging out with his buddies. Instead his summer will be filled with terror and a life-and-death battle against a nightmarish creature that few will believe even exists. Timmy learns that the person who’s been unearthing fresh graves in the cemetery isn’t a person at all. It’s a thing. And it’s after Timmy and his friends. If Timmy hopes to live to see September, he’ll have to escape the Ghoul.

    If you could sum up Ghoul in three words, what would they be?

    creepy exciting sad


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghoul?

    The epilogue was sad but memorable.


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

    I liked it, I can develop images by reading, but I don't have time- so this was a great way to experience the book


    Who was the most memorable character of Ghoul and why?

    Timmy was well-developed and easy to identify with.


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the sex details were not necessary detracted in my opinion. It was a great story and worth ignoring the sex details to get the story, but it is unnecessarily detailed during the sex scenes. I really liked the social issues brought out and interesting ideas relating to the social issues. I also really didn't like the scene where the boys got even with Catcher.

    To the public, he’s a hero: a brutal killer who targets sex offenders. To most of London’s police force, he’s the suspect in a gruesome, time-consuming case to be avoided. But to Detective Constable Maeve Kerrigan, he’s a murderer - no matter the sins of his victims - and catching him is her job. Assigned to the case with the division’s unreadable new DI, Josh Derwent, young and inexperienced Maeve is determined to prove she has what it takes to make it as a female in the tough world of the London police.

    I enjoyed the story but it was a bit slow at times. I enjoyed the British accents and british vocabulary. The story is interesting and there are some clever twists. I wouldn't pay full price for this but as a discount book it provided hours of good rntertaient

    National best-selling author Frank Peretti is an undisputed master of supernatural thrillers. The Oath has sold nearly a million copies and won the ECPA Gold Medallion Award for best fiction. When a nature photographer is killed and mutilated while camping, common sense points to a rogue bear on the prowl. But the search for answers uncovers a century of sin-and a beast of ghastly power. Filled with chilling suspense and unforgettable imagery, The Oath is an epic tale of good versus evil.

    This book exceeded my expectations! The ending is exciting and eerily makes on think of our own moral dragons, it's often difficult to determine who can be trusted, making it intriguing to hear more. The life death struggles are well written and easy to picture. The performance is excellent as well. I highly recommend this book

    Vowing to make a fresh start, Sarah McAdams has come home to renovate the old Victorian mansion where she grew up. Her daughters, Jade and Gracie, aren’t impressed by the rundown property on the shores of Oregon’s wild Columbia River. As soon as they pull up the isolated drive, Sarah, too, is beset by uneasy memories - of her cold, distant mother, of the half-sister who vanished without a trace, and of a long-ago night when Sarah was found on the widow’s walk, feverish and delirious.

    I enjoyed the mystery and interesting twists. One character was murdered and body found but superseded by more excitement. I don't think that was fully dealt with but it was a non issue for the plot so I'm just being a detail person. I enjoyed it and would read more of her books.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Summer Knight to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but I enjoyed the audio version. It might be easier to keep the characters straight in the print edition, but it was worth the effort to mentally keep everyone straight to be able to enjoy the story on my commute and while running. I enjoyed it, just not as much as some others.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed the character development, I could identify with each character, it was just a little difficult keeping them straight. The "good" could be "bad" and the "bad" might not really be "bad". It was interesting!


    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

    I'm not sure which James Marsters performed.


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

    I didn't laugh or cry during this book, but I enjoyed it. I especially liked the mystery.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book, but realize it takes some patience to get into the story and to keep the characters straight. At first, I thought I made a mistake because there was so much fantasy, but the author does a good job of eventually weaving the fantasy into a plausible version of reality. I really wantd to know how the story/battle ended and what the motives were. It was a nice mystery to solve as well. Give it a chance, it's a clever story, great characters, and a twisted ending.

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Story
    Where does The Gods of Guilt rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorite audible books so far. I really enjoyed the intriguing story with portions I could figure out, but there were surprises all the way to the end. The characters are well-developed, so it isn't hard to follow and keep everyone straight. I noticed that Connelly did research so that legal terms were accurate and process/organization was plausible. I found myself realizing why attorneys choose to defend seemingly evil people.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was riviting by providing facts and information at a pace that helped the listener figure out some of the mystery, empathize with some arguably bad characters, and leads listener though and interesting and exciting story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the trial scene because it was legally plausible and interesting to see strategy, unveiling of more key facts, and clever tactics.


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

    I didn't have an extreme emotional reaction to this book. This is a book that appeals to the intellect. It leads the listener through mental gymnastics and unveils the answer at the very end, if you didn't figure out all of the details by the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this one! I'll listen to Connelly books again.
