    Dr. Rhea Lynch left a suffocating life in Charleston to practice medicine in the ER of a small South Carolina Hospital. Now, Dawkins County is her home, a place that holds the only real family she's ever known. But when she returns from vacation, Rhea is shocked to discover that her best friend, Marisa, is near death and unable to communicate. The official diagnosis: a paralyzing stroke. Despite the family's attempts to keep her away, Rhea is determined to make her own diagnosis.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not with this narrator/reader.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Protagonist very engaging.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carol Hendrickson?

    Someone who does not have rapid pressured speech. She was almost aggressive in her narrative.


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

    Not really. It was just a good story that kept me engaged despite the horrible reader.

  • Doctor Sleep: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Stephen King

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

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

    I am not sure who would enjoy it. It was truly boring. SK has lost his way for sure.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen King again?

    Yes, but only his early stuff. I really did not like his books written after the late 80s.


    What aspect of Will Patton’s performance would you have changed?

    I found it a bit flat. More pizzazz needed.


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

    Disappointed because The Shining was so good.
