    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    If you could sum up The Twelve: A Novel in three words, what would they be?

    It's Worth Buying!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Latisha - she was one bad character, always up to something. Always a behind the lines leader.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    He keep the audio moving, easily distinguished between the multitude of characters. This was a very interesting audio. I could have listened to it for 100 hours. Never wanted it to end.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made you wonder what in the world could possibly happen next. There seemed to be a new adventure in each paragraph. It might not be an audio for just everyone however the majority would find it intriguing.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read the next adventure and see where Lish ends up. Probably Presdient of the new world order.

    Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumor, and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He’s had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

    Chris Reich says: "Stunning. I'm Guilty. Are You?"
    "It just wasn't interesting."

    What disappointed you about The Sense of an Ending?

    It couldn't hold my attention. The narrarator spoke with a monotone and I never knew when he was changing characters. It just wasn't an audio that I could recommend to anyone. I couldn't even finish it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Pines


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Morant?

    I'm not certain a different narrator would have made much of a difference. It was just an overall bad listen.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    My only reaction could be "boring"


    Any additional comments?

    In good faith I couldn't recommend that anyone waste a credit on this audiobook.

    Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. He’s a murder detective with an extraordinary case clearance rate. He’s obsessive, instinctive, and intense. Nobody who ever stood at his side has a bad word to say about him. And yet there are rumors that Luther is bad - not corrupt, not on the take, but tormented. He seethes with a hidden fury that at times he can barely control. Sometimes it sends him to the brink of madness, making him do things he shouldn’t - things well beyond the limits of the law.

    Where does Luther rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great listen. Possibly only average but then I listen to many many audios. It was well worth the credit I used to obtain it.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Certainly not in the middle of the seat.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Luther came across his suspect face to face


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

    His female partner made a big impact on the story line.


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest this audio to others. It is worth the listen. Entertaining and keeps you guessing where Luther might end up

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Would you listen to The Passage again? Why?

    I would definitely listen again. Actually kept going back so I didn't miss a single word.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Passage?

    When the members of the colony struck out on their own.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Great Performance. Possibly the best narrator for audio books.


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

    I think the "PASSAGE" says it all.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio of 36 hours is well worth the credit I used to obtain it. I would suggest it to anyone.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    If you could sum up Northern Lights in three words, what would they be?

    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line of the characters. It was hard to turn this audio off. I wante dto just sit and listen to the entire audio all at once.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The fact that a Baltimore city cop could move to the Northwest and find meaning.


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

    Yes - All at once.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio is worth using a credit for.

    For over a century, the New Hope Island vanishing has tantalized the world. How did 150 people disappear from a lonely Hebridean island, leaving no trace and no clues? Media magnate Alexander McIntyre decides to solve the mystery, and gathers a team of experts to mount an expedition to the island. He hopes running the story as a rolling exclusive will revive the fortunes of his flagship news-stand title. He hopes to find conclusive answers to questions that have teased a curious world for decades. And he wants his own secret theory triumphantly vindicated.

    What would have made The Colony better?

    I tried so hard to like this and figure out which character was doing what and it just never jelled. Very disappointing listen. Was definitely not worth giving up a credit. Poor choice on my part.


    Has The Colony turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Without a doubt.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Rintoul?

    This narrator actually did a good job the audio itself just didn't grasp my attention. I found myself thinking about other things and not being rivited to the content of the audio.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that I can associate with.


    Any additional comments?

    Too many characters to follow. Too many present day and past history events to keep the content straight. It was not what I wanted it to be.
