    On a warm October day, Jessie Burlingame lies in the bedroom of her secluded lake home, listening to the far-off sounds of the country; the cry of a loon, the growl of a chain saw, the bark of a lonesome dog. Nearer, she hears the banging of the screen door, left unlatched in the autumn breeze; nearer still, the click of the key locking the second pair of handcuffs that chain her to the bed.

    Would you listen to Gerald's Game again? Why?

    I would not listen to this book again. I love Stephen King. In my eyes he can do no wrong. Though well written, this story didn't wrap me up and wisk me away like most of his novels and the ending really left me hanging.


    What other book might you compare Gerald's Game to and why?

    I have not read another book quite like this one.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did a fine job with the material.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Jason Spencer says: "Action packed, edge of your seat "page-turner""

    Would you listen to The Gray Man again? Why?

    I might. It was actually pretty exciting.


    What other book might you compare The Gray Man to and why?

    Well I'm a horror girl through and through so Cell by Stephen king is my best refrence.n


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jay Snyder?

    Maybe his accents sucked pretty bad but overall I think he did a great job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you like violent, macho cliche-ishly good action movies you've come to the right place!


    Any additional comments?

    Not the type of book I usually read but it still managed to keep me engaged for the duration. If you can find it on sale grab it!

  • This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It

    Warning: You may have a huge, invisible spider living in your skull. This is not a metaphor. You will dismiss this as ridiculous fearmongering. Dismissing things as ridiculous fearmongering is, in fact, the first symptom of parasitic spider infection - the creature secretes a chemical into the brain to stimulate skepticism, in order to prevent you from seeking a cure. That’s just as well, since the “cure” involves learning what a chain saw tastes like. You can’t feel the spider, because it controls your nerve endings.

    Would you consider the audio edition of This Book Is Full of Spiders to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version of this book however, I did read David Wong's previous offering "John Dies at the End". The narration does add a little something extra to the writer's humor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the book did not take itself too seriously and that the writer allowed the story to be told from the perspective of all the different characters including the dog!


    What does Nick Podehl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You might miss some of the more subtle humor without his narration.


    If you could rename This Book Is Full of Spiders, what would you call it?

    The name is actually great! I would not change it!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a wonderful companion on a 9 hour solo road trip!

    Six years after four family members died of arsenic poisoning, the three remaining Blackwoods—elder, agoraphobic sister Constance; wheelchair-bound Uncle Julian; and 18-year-old Mary Katherine, or, Merricat—live together in pleasant isolation. Merricat has developed an idiosyncratic system of rules and protective magic to guard the estate against intrusions from hostile villagers. But one day a stranger arrives—cousin Charles, with his eye on the Blackwood fortune.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I just never got the plot or what was going on. It may have been over my head.
