    Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache, and a pair of horns growing from his temples. At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances.

    I loved this book. The story is awesome and the narration is top notch. This is very worth the credit.

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    The world is changing - the government has seized control of almost everything and kids are disappearing. For 15 year-old Wisty and her older brother, Whit, life turns upside-down when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no reason they can comprehend, except that the new government is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Jason says: "Quick listen, but seems quickly written."
    "New Harry Potter?"
    Overall

    UGH! Boring and way too goofy. There is a "prophecy" of course and the characters are cardboard. The cliffhnager ending left me just not caring. Don't waste the credit.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "Another hit!"
    Overall

    The narrator had a heck of job to do and he did we.. King really did well with this one. This was better than his last one. Well worth the credit.

    Within seconds, normally rational, self-controlled people become frenzied killers. Christened "Haters" by the media, the attackers strike without warning, killing all who cross their path. People are afraid to go to work, afraid to leave their homes, afraid that at any moment their friends or family could turn on them. In the face of this mindless terror, Danny McCoyne must secure his family, seek shelter, and watch as the world falls apart. "Attack first, ask questions later" becomes the order of the day.

    Lesley says: "Terrifying! In the spirit of King or Koontz"
    "Not that good"
    Overall

    It was a little laboring in parts and not as good as the reviews said.

    In Christopher Moore's ingenious debut novel, we meet one of the most memorably mismatched pairs in the annals of literature. The good-looking one is one-hundred-year-old ex-seminarian and "roads" scholar Travis O'Hearn. The green one is Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets.

    colleen says: "I named my cat after the demon Catch"
    "FUN!"
    Overall

    This is another great book by Moore. I strongly suggest A Dirty Job, this is a close second.

    "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

    C. Campbell says: "Holy crap my life sucks"
    "Not believable at all."
    Overall

    Firstly he should NEVER had attempted to narrate. The man sounds like he has excess saliva. Gross. Secondly these come off as the meandering boasts of a barely functioning alcoholic. Unfunny and plain old stupid. Wasted another credit on a book to dumb to even listent too.

    She's a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway "accident" leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she is transformed from the beautiful center of attention to an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists.

    Heather says: "Fantastic"
    "UGH!"
    Overall

    I think he was attempting to be creative with the narrative instead it comes off as confusing and boring.
    Rotten waste of a credit.

    Jesus is a fresh and inspirational re-imagining of a young man's transformational journey from carpenter's son to revolutionary leader to the man many believe to be the savior of the world. Very little is known or recorded about Jesus in his formative years. In the Gospel stories, we witness the birth of Jesus and then see him as a young boy of 12 intensely questioning the Rabbis in the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

    susan says: "From a scholar"
    "DO NOT GET THIS"
    Overall

    Deepak should definately NOT narrate his own books. His reading is not clear and it is distracting because of his thick accent. The story is also a bit convaluted. Don't waste the credit, I suggest you buy the book instead

    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "UGH!"

    Holy smokes! This was a complete waste of a credit!
