    Story
    (2102)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Overall

    Dean Koontz usually tells such strange and chilling stories that I shy away from reading them. The editors review of the story line interested me, so I took a chance. It turned out to be a good mystery/ghost story without all the gore and I really enjoyed hearing it. It is one of those stories that I would go back in the future and listen to again,or maybe a sequel.

    Thank you Mr Koontz.

    "Taylor is the name. John Taylor...My card says I'm a detective, but what I really am is an expert on finding things. It's part of the Gift I was born with as a child of the Nightside - the hidden heart of London where it's always three a.m., where inhuman creatures and otherworldly gods walk side-by-side in the endless darkness of the soul. Assignment: Joanna Barrett hires me to track down her teenage daughter, who decided to forgo the circus and run away to the Nightside."

    I can't decide which was worse the typical story,bad writing or the terrible narrator.

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Overall

    This is a interesting story that seems to reflect the attitude of today in our society. It rightly predicts the ultimate out come of such a pitiful mind set. I could have given it a higher rating if it had less preaching and long unnecessary descriptions. By the time I reached the 5th section I was ready for it to end. By the 7th I had to make myself finish it.

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all...his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

    This book reads like a story written by a first year writing student. Did you find it among your school notes Mr Koontz? I expected better from one of my favorite authors.
