    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Story

    Took ma about 45 minutes to finally stop hearing King's voice and start listening to the story.

    First what i didn't like. The wrapper.
    the 4 tolling down the yellow brick road eating samitches and watching the bumbler wig out. Seemed to set up.

    2nd thing i didn't care for was the story about the salties. that seemed thin to me.

    What i absolutely loved was the inner story! it was fantastic. i could listen to a whole 30 hours of these fairy tales. wish WTKH was just that. about 7 kick ass little stories.

    I appreciate the one, just was hoping for more. yes i am greedy,

    Nice treat at the end was the first chapter to the follow up of the Shinning.
    very much looking forward to it.

    Over all, defiantly worth the credit.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    the last thing i heard from hill was horns, which was pretty bad. This was great! good solid story, though i felt the ending was a little short/abrupt. over all if he keeps writing like this, he has a life long fan. the reader was excellent!

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    Story

    After listening and really enjoying ready player one, i thought i would jump to reamde. seeing the great reviews here and on amazon. really wish i could get my credit back. Its not a bad story, just slow, not very clever, and sorta boring. there are bits that are interesting. but the virtual bit is flat. the action real life are to far between. the characters are thin. i like the farming parts, or descriptions of country side. but the Russians are getting boring. i am only through the first part (8 hours), will listen to the rest, but its getting hard to hold my attention. probably wont pick up any thing else by this author. kinda surprised so many listeners like it..

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    haesel says: "Where was this woman's editor?"
    "if you are nto twilight i guess it might pass."
    Overall

    i thought since it has such great reviews it might be worth a listen. its not my style. maybe i need to be a teen age girl to enjoy, but this has no new story. every thing is divided into class. demon, witch, vampire. every group is Flat and boring. another vampire that can walk around in the day... wish i could get my credit back from this one. 1/3 of the way through and i am going to have to put this one back up on the shelf. Maybe my daughter will enjoy it in another 12 years...

    With this outrageous new novel, China Miéville has written one of the strangest, funniest, and flat-out scariest books you will read this—or any other—year. The London that comes to life in Kraken is a weird metropolis awash in secret currents of myth and magic, where criminals, police, cultists, and wizards are locked in a war to bring about—or prevent—the End of All Things.

    Caveat Emptor says: "A New Favorite Author"

    not awful, just not very good. i like the effort, just not my style. riddlin might help.
