    Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

    I really enjoyed this book for a quite original take on the average haunted house story. I was taken in immediatley by the foreword from the author.
    Although never quite falling in love wih any of the characters, they were reasonably well drawn with enough back story to have the reader care about what happens to them.
    The shocks were well spaced and didnt resort to unecessary gore to highlight them.
    I liked the authors performance, as opposed to some reviewers. I tend to think that a lot of male narrators go beserk with lisping female characters and I found Kafers more straight forward reading refreshing. The only caveat on this would be that the man should never sing on a story ever again.
    All up a very entertaining way to pass the time.

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    This is a true original daddy of the genre, one of the first truly well written end of the world novels.
    Enough scientific data to be credible to the layman without getting bogged down in detail.
    Interesting characters get the reader involved, even if the plot is a little set up at times.

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    This novel is Dean Koontz going through the motions. The story is quite unimaginative and found myself predicting where it would go.
    There was certainly not a great deal of tension and I felt as though the characters had been seen in many other similar works.
    The narrator did as well as he could with the material but even he sounded disinterested in some places.
    There are quite a few other books in the genre that I would recommend ahead of this one.

    This classic novel has been wonderfully performed to truly lift the readers overall experience. A tremendous tale that has stood the test of time and will remain one of the all time great novels.
    Quite long but I found myself completely absorbed for the entirety. Highly recommended.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    I have recommended this to many friends and family members whether or not they are 'god people'. The story is strong and very original and provides great entertainment.
    I am really surprised that a story told in such an unusual way could have me so engrossed and involoved.
    I was genuinely sorry when this story was concluded.

    Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.

    Before 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and 'Sarah Palin', Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true.

    Tina Fey is a very talented writer and performer and this is really highlighted here. She is honest and open about the events that have moulded her life and the fact that she reads it herself provides an extra dimension of interest. Very highly recommended.
