    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos.

April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would and have! The beginning was a little slow but managed to bridge a long gap of time between the first and second books. Once you get past that though, Cronin does another masterful job of bringing you into a world that exists in and of itself. I was entirely consumed and equally disappointed when I found myself arriving at the office and having to pause it until the ride home!


    Any additional comments?

    This trilogy had me from the get go. Number two did not disappoint. I can't wait to read the third!

    When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who's occasionally called Jack. While it's doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity, or even if he's still alive, he's in his mid-30s and lives completely off the grid, a criminal's criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with.

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

    Great heist story


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

    It was a bit over the top at times, but it had it's moments.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I felt the narrator did a decent job creating accents and afflictions for the characters and maintaining them through the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Surface level adventure story about a couple of bank heists. Entertaining certainly, but no moral high ground attained.

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

    The Stand


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Swan Song?

    The planting of the corn seeds.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    If you could take any character from Swan Song out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Older Swan. Read the book and the Why should be obvious!

    The Past...Caught behind the lines of Hitler’s Final Solution, Saul Laski is one of the multitudes destined to die in the notorious Chelmno extermination camp. Until he rises to meet his fate and finds himself face-to-face with an evil far older, and far greater, than the Nazis themselves...

    Story
    Where does Carrion Comfort rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Carrion Comfort orbits around the classic ideas of the vampire but never comes right out and says it. In fact the creatures in this story do not act as true vampires at all, but instead simply have some similar characteristics. The story was a big long winded at times but over all SImmons does a great job of drawing the listener into twisted world. I really enjoyed the sinister ways the victims were killed throughout the story, but I could have done without the overly dramatic play by play chess game.


    What does Mel Foster and Laural Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Both narrator's did a good job of associating a specific voice to each different character they read. In my opinion this always adds a certain richness to a book that the reader might not get without listning to the audiobook.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    What did you love best about Daemon?

    First off I thoroghly enjoyed this book. That being said, if you are looking for a deep story with timelessness that will be appreciated for generations this is probably not the book for you. If however, like me you are simply looking for a fun fast paced and timely thriller then this book will likely be just the ticket. The character development was just deep enough to draw you into the characters without slowing down the story. The story itself was very unique and clearly though out and planned very well. I love the way the author makes it so easy to believe in this autonomous computer virus that can kill at will! Creative, fast paced, shocking and fun fun fun!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    !! SPOILER ALERT !!

    I liked Loki the best. Sure he was a "bad guy" but sometimes we find ourselves enjoying the bad guys right? I think I like him the most becasuse he acted as the face and body of the virus and was eventually in charge of that wild chase scene!


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

    I usually listen to audiobooks during my daily commute. A select few books will find themselves being listened to as I sit on the couch with the dog. This was one of those books! I kept wondering what was going to happen next and never wanted to stop!

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    What did you love best about Snow Crash?

    As with most Stephenson novels, the character development was superb! I could picture every detail of a character and felt llike I knew them all.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The unique technical gadgets were an interesting addition that helped to complete the overall world that Stephenson draws you into.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a Stephenson novel so if you are not interested in phenomenal detail in characters, places, and things; this book may not be for you. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to hearing Interface by Stephenson next.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    This book was recommended to me by my older brother. We generally have similar tastes and this was no different. This is now the best vampire book I have ever read. It brings with it a phenomenal twist to generic vampire lores. It is an epic novel that spans years, and I was hanging on for what would happen next at every age it passed through.

    Having been a horror/mystery fan for years, I can easily say that this was the creepiest book I have read, and has surpassed my previous favorite vampire "The Strain" by Guilermo Del Toro, and Paul Hogan, to stand far out in front as my new favorite.

    The narration didn't bother me at all, and I actually appreciated the fact that they had multiple voices to handle different characters throughout. I'm looking for to the next time I listen to it!
