    Overall

    Dean again writes a wonderful story for guys. It has all 5 of the necessary parts to make it great.
    1. A guy with an Issue.
    2. The Dog.
    3. A Gun
    4. A Creature to use the Gun on
    5. A HOTTIE to protect.
    What more could you ask for, suspence, action, it's all there. Read this book, you will love it as I did.

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or Korey Jackson?

    I love Dean Koontz novels. I have most of them in Hardback, Paperback, and Audio. This one however was a struggle to get through.


    What was most disappointing about Dean Koontz’s story?

    It took several days for me to force myself through the book. When you get to the end there are redeeming qualities, you really get a grasp of what Koontz is trying to get across, but getting there is a painful journey. I don't mind that kind of journey in life, but it shouldn't be in a novel.


    Have you listened to any of Korey Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I did enjoy his voices, and performance.


    Was The City worth the listening time?

    No, not really, the book was a struggle to get through.


    Any additional comments?

    Koontz is a wonderful author. I have enjoyed the majority of his Novels and I still think he is the best. Unfortunately this is not one of the best.

    Story

    Moonlight Bay: a safe, secluded small town that is at its most picturesque in the gentle nighttimes that inspired its name. But now, somewhere in the night, children are disappearing. Christopher Snow believes that the children are still alive. He is convinced the disappearances have everything to do with the catastrophic effects of secret research conducted deep within Fort Wyvern. To keep those secrets, violent and powerful forces are willing to conceal even the most heinous crimes.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this book. It's a wonderful tale. Koontz brings you into a world that could be, and sends you through the mind and heart of a true hero.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat, but it most certainly kept my interest. My concern for the characters felt real. I found myself in my truck, telling the characters to watch out.


    What does Keith Szarabajka bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His tone of voice really fits the character. At least my vision of him. He's very low key with a big heart, and Keith brings it out for you to identify with Chris.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely. Rarely do I wish my commute were longer, but, this was one of those times.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Easter Eggs. I read the Odd Thomas series before this, and now I'm waiting for Oddy and Chris to meet.

    The hair-raising action continues for Michael Vey in this charged third installment of the #1 New York Times best-selling series. In the third book of the electrifying Michael Vey series, Michael and his friends must continue to fight the Elgen and try to disrupt their plans to rule the world.

    What did you love best about Battle of the Ampere?

    Consistent story and character development


    What other book might you compare Battle of the Ampere to and why?

    The first two books. Follows the story progression


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No offence to the new narrator, I'm sorry but its like changing the lead actor in a movie. He didn't pull it off. Needs to be re-done by the original. He got the characters right. Unique voices. You knew who each was by the voice. New narrator did a poor job defining each characters voice from the others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definately, at leat til I heard the new narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Please get the original narrator back. So disappointing
