    In the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention. Onthe world of Hyperion, the mysterious Time Tombs are opening. And the secrets they contain mean that nothing - nothing anywhere in the universe - will ever be the same.

    "This is a GREAT book. Enjoyed very much"
    Overall

    Having read this right after finishing Hyperion, I kept looking at the front cover to make sure the author was the same, the story was, ( is ) great and very compelling but the writing style and story seemed to be in a competly different style then Hyperion.
    It continues the story of Hyperion and expands on it. If your only have two credits left, get Hyperion and the Fall of...
    Listed as Sci-Fi this book is Horror. Better then any thing King has written in years, If you have not read a good horror story lately, this is it.
    Ps. to Dan Simmons and Audible, "Carrion Comfort"

    In the third volume of The Dark Tower, Roland, the last gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower that haunts his dreams and nightmares. But he is no longer alone. He has trained Eddie and Susannah, who entered Mid-World from their separate whens in New York City in The Drawing of the Three, in the old ways of the gunslingers. But their ka-tet is not yet complete.

    What made the experience of listening to The Waste Lands the most enjoyable?

    Like Kings “Fire Starter” , “The Waste Lands” Kicks you in the butt and drags you across Mid world so fast you can not catch your breath.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Gasher Man. Had a way with words.


    What about Frank Muller’s performance did you like?

    He is the BEST. Went to WaveDancer Foundation in New York.. We lost a great talent. Respect to his family. If you put in Frank Mullers name as a search he did great works on all the books he did. Very sad and I miss him. Was like a friend telling me the story. Did voices, inflections and what ever else he felt would carry the story. God Bless


    If you could take any character from The Waste Lands out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Hard question when you take the stooges out of the equasion. I would like to take Murcy. She could spin a tail.


    Any additional comments?

    Just that this was the first book of the series that I read. Then went to 1 and 2. I beleave If i had tryed 1 the 2 in order with out reading 3, I do not beleave I would have finished them. As I say 3 draws you in and gets you to care about these people. 1 and 2 are long prologs. With out the feeling i got from book three I would not care about the back storey, or the prolog of how the band met. went 3,1,2,3 (enjoyed just as much as the first reading), 4. no other books out soon due to , well , you know. so I read 3 again then 1,2,3,4 and by then 5 was soon to come out.
    have read or listened to each book 5X or More. Book 3 I would say 8X at least.
    Its OK......

    Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers; and Oy.

    oy


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

    no- to much to absord


    Any additional comments?

    As stated, this is at least the tenth time for this story. My fav. is book 3, had to listen to that 12X. Not going to give a single word away of story or plot. Enjoy.

    Her name is Elise Freeman, and her chilling cry for help to whoever may be listening comes too late to save her. On a DVD found near her lifeless body, the emotionally and physically battered woman chronicles a year-and-a-half-long ordeal of monstrous abuse at the hands of three sadistic tormentors. But even more shocking than the lurid details is the revelation that the offenders, like their victim, are teachers at one of L.A.s most prestigious prep schools.

    Jonna says: "Really disappointed"
    "As always, a pleasure to listen to"
    Overall

    Really enjoy all of the Doctor Delaware books. and as usual John Rubinstein does a great job.
    thanks JK

    Anthony Award-winning author Charlaine Harris has earned a devoted fan base with her USA Today and New York Times best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. All Together Dead features more dark but frequently hilarious adventures of buxom, blonde, beautiful, and telepathic cocktail waitress Sookie, who prefers the company of vampires to that of the living.

    I am a 49 year old male who loves Sookie. Being a life long Dark Shadows fan this series of books is great. It's entertaining, funny, sad. I will admite when it reaches the bedroom I fast forward, but other than that I am enthralled.

    I enjoyed True Blood on HBO so while listening to this book I can see the characters in my mind. Its a fun ( very dark at times ) adventure of Sookie and her strange friends. A+. I am a Man over 40 and a Fan of Dark Shadows. If you like DS you will like this.

    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.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "you have got to be kidding me"
    Overall

    This is like a long cheezy twilight zone. Think of Kings "The Mist" under glass. The reader is fine. I did listen to the whole thing so I guess I got my credit's worth. Still.....

    Have seen the true blood series on HBO and enjoyed. A big Dark Shadows fan and really enjoyed T.B.. This book more or less takes place after the last season. I listened to and the narrator sounds so much like Sookie from the show it uncannie. I usually do not like female readers, they do not do men voices well but J. Parker does a good job. In fact she does a great job all around.From the show I can picture the characters in my head and really enjoy the book more for it. I have ended up getting the whole series.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    No spoilers, just enjoying the book and reader.
