  • The Man in the Black Suit: 4 Dark Tales

    A haunting recollection of a mysterious boyhood event, The Man in the Black Suit leads off this masterful collection from Stephen King. Other dark tales include: All That You Love Will Be Carried Away, in which a man checks into a Lincoln, Nebraska Motel 6 to find the meaning in his life; That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is in French, presents the ultimate case of deja vu; and The Death of Jack Hamilton, a blistering tale of Depression-era outlaws on the run.

    Anthony says: "Not Your Classic Stephen King"
    "Classic Short Story writing by King....but...."
    Overall

    This was classic King but "The Man In The Black Suite" was by far the best, not even close.

    In gripping, never-before-heard detail, President Bush brings listeners inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the hotly contested 2000 election; aboard Air Force One on 9/11, in the hours after America's most devastating attack since Pearl Harbor; at the head of the table in the Situation Room in the moments before launching the war in Iraq; and behind the Oval Office desk for numerous historic and controversial decisions.

    Shirley says: "straight forward"
    "Great Book From a Great Man"
    Overall

    I thought this was fantastic, I learned much more than I thought and I like how he structured the book around major decisions. No matter what you political views are it is a good coming of age story where a man becomes a President.

    A brilliant meteor lights up the Maine coast and two young women borrow a boat and set out for a distant island to find the impact crater. A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars and it appears to have been activated. Sixty hours and counting.

    adam says: "Not good"
    "Not Preston's Best"
    Overall

    I thought this story was pretty good but a little forgetable. I REALLY wanted to like it more than I do.

    I love the "End of the world" books but this one could have been better. Not Preston's best work at all.

    This is Gordon Ramsay's autobiography, the first time he has told the full story of how he became the world's most famous and infamous chef. He also discusses his difficult childhood, his brother's heroin addiction, and his failed first career as a footballer.

    Wes says: "Humble Ramsay"
    "Come on Gordon Give Us More"
    Overall

    This was very good and I am a great fan of Ramsay, in fact I think he is the most talented chef in the world but this was far to short.

    Come on Ramsay have another slice of pie and give us more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    James Wesley Rawles, founder of survivalblog.com, shares with you everything you need to know to be ready for the worst. The book includes information on proper food storage and sanitation, gardening and livestock basics, investment strategies to protect your assets, medical advice, communication techniques, home security, and how to get "outta Dodge" when, in the parlance of the movement, "the shit hits the fan".

    This was like a military manual, not compelling at all, in fact I still have not finished it because I have already wasted like 2 hours of my life that I can not get back. NO MORE. In fact I deleted it off my iPhone for good measure.

    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    Flatlander says: "Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle at Their Best"
    "How Long Was This Book"
    Overall

    This was maybe the longest book I have ever listened to. I had a hard time picturing small elephants taking over the world........did say this book was long. I am thinking it was about 283 hours long....give or take an hour or two.

    Did I mention this was on the long side?

    Reeling from a painful break-up, English instructor and avid book lover Wesley Smith is haunted by his ex-girlfriend's parting shot: "Why can't you just read off the computer like everyone else?" He buys an e-book reader out of spite, but soon finds he can use the device to glimpse realities he had never before imagined, discovering literary riches beyond his wildest dreams...and all-too-human tragedies that surpass his most terrible nightmares.

    Across America a mysterious disease is turning ordinary people into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, themselves, and even their own families.

    Jessica says: "Confused? This review might help."
    "A little over the top.....but fast pace."
    Overall

    This being my first Scott Sigler book I thought it was fast paced and the characters were well thought out for the most part. That being said I also thought it was a little over done and Sigler added gore just to shock instead of bettering the story line.

    Lastly a bit of advice for Mr. Sigler.....please do not narrate anymore of your books, it is simply not good. Stick to writing.

    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.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "Pretty Good But LONG.....even for King"
    Overall

    I was excited about this book when I saw it, cool idea and I love King so it had to be a great book. It was ok.....way to long and many of the key people were over developed.

    I would have loved this book if it was HALF the length.
