    What made the experience of listening to Speaks the Nightbird the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was exceptional. It was such a pleasant listening experience. I couldn't wait to get out on my mail route to listen to more of the story. I love the fact that the book was over 30 hours long. It could have been twice as long and I would have still been bummed when it ended.


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

    The plot was very well devised.


    Which character – as performed by Edoardo Ballerini – was your favorite?

    Matthew Corbett was my favorite character.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely loved this book more than any other book that I have read or listened to. You will not be disappointed with this book!

  • The Exorcist: 40th Anniversary Edition

    Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty's thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.

    Where does The Exorcist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has to be in the top 5 audiobooks that I've listened to. Awesome!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Exorcist?

    The demonic scenes are gripping and very creepy.


    What about William Peter Blatty and Eliana Shaskan ’s performance did you like?

    WPB gave an absolutely amazing performance! I thought several times during the story about what a talent it is to be able to tell a story and bring it to life in the manner in which he was able.


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

    Yes, absolutely if I had the time to listen in one sitting but I listened over the course of three days on my mail route.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I've never seen the movie and am not sure that I want to see it now that I have completed the book. I've formed images of each of the characters in my head and I think watching the movie would ruin it for me.

    On a frigid New Year’s Eve in Minneapolis, a young woman’s brutalized body falls from the trunk of a car into the path of oncoming traffic. Questions as to whether she was alive or dead when she hit the icy pavement result in her macabre nickname, Zombie Doe. Unidentified and unidentifiable, she is the ninth nameless female victim of the year, and homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are charged with the task of not only finding out who Zombie Doe is but who in her life hated her enough to destroy her. Was it personal? Or could it just have been a crime of opportunity?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was really bad. I had to speed the book up to 1.25 speed just to keep my head from exploding. The story moves so slowly that it's painful. I really regret buying this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tami Hoag again?

    No way!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was just plain awful. I detested his accent and his manner of reading. It was slow, stereotypical and annoying.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    DISAPPOINTMENT!
