    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    Overall

    I really liked this story. Stephen King has once again spun a tale of bizarre expanses with believable characters and circumstance. This is well worth your time but I do have to say that I was disappointed in the ending....there is so much that is left undone I can only hope that King plans another entry into this saga that will take us to the next level.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Overall

    I am an Audiobook Junkie, I have well over 100 Audiobooks in my library to date and this one will remain one of my favorites. Philip Pullman's narration is exquisite and the full cast adaptation of this story brings it to life more that any I have heard. I highly recommend this book for your listening library...and don't forget the other two parts of the Trilogy - The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass...both with the same full cast adaptation.

    Best selling author John Grisham (A Time to Kill, The Brethren) returns with a new tale for modern times, offering a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become a part of our holiday tradition.

    "It was pure entertainment....."
    Overall

    I gave this book a listen the year it was released. I was not sure what to expect but I can say I was pleasantly surprised. A book like this is not meant to change the world or be accurate in all of it's detail, I mean after all it IS a fictional story. This is like a situation comedy that was very well written and delivered what I expected...entertainment. If you want to just simply enjoy a short novel and laugh at some crazy doings..go for this one.
