    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

    Overall

    I loved everything about this book. It's dark and unhappy but told beautifully. I felt like I could step into Camille's shoes and really understand her.

    While many will find this book too creepy or morbid, I think it speaks to the real truths of the nasty things that happen in the world and their consequences.

    As a side, if you're a cutter, this book may trigger you.

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    Chris Moore rocks my world and frequently makes me expel beverages through my nose. The man is hilarious!

    I loved BLOOD SUCKING FIENDS. I love YOU SUCK even more. The addition of Abby Normal made this for me. And the narration is better then spot-on! Just finished this and I'm on to the third installment, BITE ME: A LOVE STORY.

    Now in theaters, a re-release of the classic horror flick The Exorcist is promising to be scarier than ever. Restored by the film's director, William Friedkin, the new cut includes a full reel of previously unreleased footage, eliminated before the film's first release. To prepare for the frightening film, listen to the audiobook version, read by the author.

    Parusski says: "Why did I wait so long to read the book?"
    "Brrrr... that's scary!"
    Overall

    THE scariest book in the history of the planet. Blatty's reading is spine tingling. I get chills just thinking about it...

    Two years ago, Eva Khatchadourian's son, Kevin, murdered seven high-school students, a cafeteria worker, and an algebra teacher. Because he was only 15 at the time, he received a lenient sentence and is now in a prison for young offenders. Telling the story of Kevin's upbringing, Eva addresses herself to her estranged husband through a series of letters. Fearing that her own shortcomings may have shaped what her son has become, she confesses to a long-standing ambivalence. How much is her fault?

    Sherry L. Wright says: "Fantastic!"
    "Top five ever!"
    Overall

    I love this book so much. It's the only audio I've listened to more than twice. A fantastic, believable piece of fiction. It's the very first book I recommend to anyone and everyone who asks. Hell, I recommend it to people who don't ask. This one is damn near perfect!

    When Elspeth Noblin dies of cancer, she leaves her London apartment to her twin nieces, Julia and Valentina. These two American girls never met their English aunt; they only knew that their mother, too, was a twin, and Elspeth her sister. Julia and Valentina are semi-normal American teenagers - with seemingly little interest in college, finding jobs, or anything outside their cozy home in the suburbs of Chicago, and with an abnormally intense attachment to one another.

    A User says: "What a waste"

    Overall

    I loved the story. Thought it was well told, even. But I hate every character in it. I couldn't relate to them. I know a lot of people who really loved everything about this book. I just couldn't dig the folks living in it...

    "The Breathing Method", from Stephen King's bestselling collecton Different Seasons, takes place in an exclusive gentlemen's club in New York, where no one pays any dues. Membership is based upon a telling of tales, and one nightmarish tale about a disgraced woman determined to give birth - not matter the consequences - pays for them all.

    Story

    Gemma is the story of a child abduction written from two widely divergent points of view: 12 year-old Gemma and Hazen Wook, the 36-year-old man who abducts her. Hazen is a violent pedophile, a sexual obsessive, and Tilly does not white-wash or sanitize his thoughts in any way. This book is scary and not for the faint of heart.

    I've never written a review on audible before and I've listened to countless books. I felt that I needed to on this one.

    The story itself made me sick, sad and at times disgusted with myself for continuing to listen. I couldn't put it away though. It's like a car accident on the side of the road. You just have to see if somebody's ended up a bloody mess.

    This book was written with a viscious, foul and truthful voice. It's painful to think of a helpless child in this type of predicament and it's sickening to hear the thoughts of the predator but I think it's a necessary story. I think there are far too many people in the world who don't realize the horrors that await children around every corner.
