    Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

    Kevin says: "If you read this, you're hooked"
    "Completely spellbinding"
    Overall

    This book, written by King but lived by Muller, is absolute mind candy. From the moment I start listening to the anxious times I must pause this story, I'm completely immersed and feel as if I'm traveling along the beach with the forming Ka Tet.

    I'm listening to the entire series and loving every minute of it.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."
    "And end worth waiting for"

    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've been listening to the Wheel of Time series books for two years, and I waited patiently for this final volume to be released. I have to say that I was not disappointed. Brandon Sanderson was spot on in the last few books with keeping to Robert Jordan's narrative, all while adding a bit of himself to the mix. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading as always delivered the most compelling performance. It was a long time coming, waiting for months / years for the end to be written. It was certainly worth the wait.


    What other book might you compare A Memory of Light to and why?

    All other books in the Wheel of Time series.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, and they were awesome


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    And ending of one age, the beginning of another. The ultimate struggle between the Light and Dark culminates in one incredible Last Battle.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to start listening all over again so I can relive the whole thing. What a great series

    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    BSquared67 says: "A rollicking thriller"
    "Fun listening experience"
    Overall

    This compilation was the first hyper colaboration I've ever read or listened to. I enjoyed every change in the different authors perspective and the way the story wound in non linear tangents. This was a lot of fun to listen to, and well read by Mr. Molina. I'd love to see more works like this in the future.

  • State of Fear

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    F says: "Did I read the same book as some of you?"
    "Kept me wanting more"
    Overall

    This was a wonderful book written by Crichton and expertly read by George Wilson. Crichton again amazes me by his technical analysis of the subject, married to a fantastic plot and a story that begged to be listened to. It amazes me how one author can speak so expertly about almost any subject.

    FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years: the one that tells her the Poet has returned. Years ago she worked on the famous case, tracking down the serial killer who wove lines of poetry into his hideous crimes. Rachel has never forgotten Robert Backus, the killer who called himself the Poet, and apparently he has not forgotten her either.

    Jon says: "Bosch again"
    "Captivating"
    Overall

    This book really hit a home run with me, based mostly in Los Angeles and Las Vegas made this story real in my mind. Harry Bosch is at it again, with FBI Agent Rachel Walling hunting for The Poet, a serial killing phsycopath with Walling's number. The imagery of this audio book keeps me in my car listening long after I reach my destination. Michael Connelly's incredible writing coupled with Len Cariou's narration made this a great experience.
