What made the experience of listening to The Wind Through the Keyhole the most enjoyable?

The best thing about this for me was having Stephen King read it to me!! Many times when the author reads a book it isn't too great, but he really brought life to the characters! It was like having a master story teller tell me a story!

What did you like best about this story?

The story, within the story within the story...as told by our old friend Roland

Which character – as performed by Stephen King – was your favorite?

Bill Stoutheart Ross

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

Yes...but I couldn't cause I listened it in my car

Any additional comments?

It was very entertaining...I loved being able to hear from Roland, Jake, Eddie, Susannah and Oy again...I thought their story was done and we would never hear from them again!

Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

  • Length: 18 hrs and 19 mins

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

The world is a mess. It seems that everywhere listeners turn, there's another problem. What is needed now are solutions. If only there was a man who could simplify things, cut through the rhetoric, and fix everything. Then, if he was just able to put all of that insight into something that people could buy...in a store and online...man, that would great. Wait a minute!
