    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    I usually listen to my audiobooks only in the car, but The Confession was so good I couldn't turn it off. Very credit-worthy!

    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.

    Loved it. King's best long novel in years (including Dome, which was good but not great). One of those you never want to end because you're enjoying it that much. Super deal for 1 credit - don't even hesitate!

    Grady Adams lives a simple, solitary life deep in the Colorado mountains. Here the 35-year-old carpenter works out of a converted barn, crafting exquisite one-of-a-kind furniture. There's little about this strong yet gentle man to suggest the experiences that have alienated him from the contemporary world. But that is about to change.

    Overall

    What an abrupt, disappointing ending. Lots of classic DK buildup via animals, science and conspiracy....then it just ends abruptly with no explanations of why or what happens next. I literally thought I must have missed half the download. Save your credit.

    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Wow - what to say. I read the reviews mentioning the annoying background music, but I shrugged it aside thinking "how bad can it be?" Well let me tell you - it is BAD. Not like the chapter transition music you get with some books - this music is jarring, LOUD, and loathsome. It is so much louder than the narration at some points that you can't even hear the reading. I kept having to rip my earbuds out b/c it hurt my ears so much.

    Another problem. I have read every single one of his books - I think this was the only one I hadn't read. I love the author, and after listening to Under The Dome I wanted to see if there were any of his I had missed. Unfortunately, Insomnia was tedious, and I couldn't wait for it to be over. The singular POV is unusual for King, and I kept wishing the narrative would switch to another character and give Ralph Roberts a much needed rest (no pun intended).

    I rarely write reviews, but I just had to on this one. If you're like me - you listen to some books and read some others - put this on your reading list. The noise (I can't even call it music) on this recording is MISERABLE. MISERABLE! Save your credit on this one - I sure wish I had!!

    2 stars only b/c I've heard worse...but not many.
