    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.

    "No plot"
    Overall

    Depressing, depressing and depressing. No plot.

    Three Junes is a vividly textured symphonic novel set on both sides of the Atlantic during three fateful summers in the lives of a Scottish family. Three Junes "almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains...extraordinary," says Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours.

    Dagmar says: "Beautiful Narration of a Wonderful Story!"
    "Great narrator"
    Overall

    I loved the book even if it didn't have a plot. The characters were brought to life by the narrator who seems able to do so many accents. I couldn't tell until the credits which one was his true accent.

    After losing one of its own, Lindsay Boxer and the Women's Murder Club make a courageous return for their fourth and most chilling case ever, one that could easily be their last. A young girl is killed in crossfire after a routine arrest goes terribly wrong, and Lt. Lindsay Boxer has to defend herself against a charge of police brutality. In a landmark trial that transfixes the nation, Lindsay fights to save her career and her sanity.

    Wende says: "Nice addition to series..."
    "Just so-so"
    Overall

    This book was not the best of the series. Many improbabilities such as she is on trial for a killing but her sister is on vacation instead of by her side???? Did not like the woman reading the story. Her voice sounded like a well to do person not a cop.

    Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

    flimfrik says: "Wanted to like it but constantly disappointed."
    "light reading"
    Overall

    No heavy reading (listening) here. A simple story that made me want to learn how to knit.

    A blisteringly paced tale of one family's struggle to stay together in the face of the most terrifying psychotic killer to haunt a novel in some time, Mr. Murder is one of Dean Koontz's most harrowing, thought-provoking stories.

    Salty says: "Enjoy Dean's visual imagination"
    "a little dated"
    Overall

    This was not Dean Koontz's best work. While the suspense was there the climax was not exciting as his usual stuff. Hated the ending it was unbelievable.

    With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

    David says: "Excellent read!"
    "good listen"

    I liked this story there was a good twist in the middle.

    Dylan O'Connor, a gifted young artist, is attacked by a mysterious "doctor" and injected with a strange substance. He is told that he is now a carrier of something that will either kill him...or transform his life. Then he is told that he must flee before the doctor's enemies hunt him down. Stunned, disbelieving, Dylan is turned loose to run for his life - and straight into an adventure that will turn the next 24 hours into an odyssey of terror, mystery, and wondrous discovery.

    Mary S. Murray says: "Superb"
    "heroes"
    Overall

    If you like the tv show "Heroes" you'll like this story. The author creates suspense by having an autistic young man control the groups fate at times.

    Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable 9-year-old, expects never to fit into her gifted family: her autodidact father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism; her brother, Aaron, the vessel of his father's spiritual ambitions; and her brilliant but distant lawyer-mom, Miriam. But when Eliza sweeps her school and district spelling bees in quick succession, Saul takes it as a sign that she is destined for greatness.

    Cathy says: "Fascinating concept but something missing"
    "sad but interesting"
    Overall

    This is an odd little story about a seemingly normal family that is really anything but normal. Not a tear jerker but certainly not uplifting.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    chris says: "Entertained"
    "King is back"
    Overall

    Finally the old Stephen King is back. This is a great story I couldn't stop listening to it. From the current references it sounds like it was written last week. The reader however, was just okay. I think it was the editing, sometimes a word or phrase was edited in that was obviously not Campbell.
