    The year is 1924 and the race to summit the world's highest mountain has been brought to a terrified pause by the shocking disappearance of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine, high on the shoulder of Mt. Everest. By the following year, three climbers - a British poet and veteran of the Great War, a young French Chamonix guide, and an idealistic young American - find a way to take their shot at the top.

    The detail was exceptional without going overboard. I experienced a broad range of emotions while listening to Abominable.

    After a tragic car accident claims the lives of his wife, Jane, and son, Ryan, Marcus Taylor is immersed in grief. But his family isn't the only thing he has lost. An addiction to painkillers has taken away his career as a paramedic. Working as a 911 operator is now the closest he gets to redemption - until he gets a call from a woman trapped in a car.

    What didn’t you like about Paige McKinney’s performance?

    Although narrator enunciated well and successfully differentiated characters with voice inflections, it felt as though she were reading to an audience of young children. She sounded like a pre-school teacher.

    He doesn't wear a warning sign. He looks perfectly normal. He's the man standing behind you in the check-out line, the neighbor who borrows your tools, the stranger who stops to offer you a lift. He smiles and nods and winks-and then he kills! Charlie Blackhawk is such a monster. Twisted fantasies have lured Charlie to the neon-splashed alleyways of Hollywood. When his path crosses that of Meg Stinson and her 12-year-old daughter, Sabrina, their lives change forever. What's the connection between the Stinsons and a girl named Amy?

    What did you love best about Deranged: A Novel of Horror?

    Great twisted psychological/horror book. Listened to it from beginning to end without taking a break. Narrator suited the story & characters were well developed considering the short length of the book.

    This gripping novel is not only one of the best books written about Vietnam; it is also one of the most powerful anti-war novels in American literature. Walter James has no face. Braiden Chaney has no arms or legs. They lost them 22 years ago, in Vietnam. Now, in the course of one long night in a V.A. hospital, these two soldiers, one black, the other white, reveal how they came to be where they are and what they can only hope to become.

    What did you love best about Dirty Work?

    I'm not often a fan of short stories but this one packed a helluva punch in a little package. Not a tear jerker, the ending left me with the sense a huge rock had been dumped in the pit of my stomach. Needless to say, it took days to digest.

    Excellent narration only added to the story.
