I enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator is easy to understand and seems very knowledgeable on the topic. I've used a couple of essential oils in my hair but I'm
fairly new to them, so he mentioned a lot of oils I've never heard of. I did write down some recipes because I do plan on trying them.

America's favorite bounty hunter is back behind the wheel in her fifth hilarious, high-octane thriller. Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum strikes out on her own. Okay, so a scumball blows himself to bits on her first day of policing a crack house, and the sheik she was chauffeuring steals the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect.

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

I would recommend it, in fact, I have recommended it because you're guaranteed to get a good laugh.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Stephanie, of course, but there are plenty of others.

What aspect of Debi Mazar’s performance would you have changed?

I really do not care for Debi narration of the book. I might be spoiled with C.J. Critt's reading because she does an excellent job! Debi's voice is the same for every character. C.J's isn't.

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

I mostly listen to these books while I'm at work and sometime I let them put me to sleep at night.

Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty's thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.

What did you love best about The Exorcist?

This book is scary! It's even more chilling than the movie!

What other book might you compare The Exorcist to and why?

None that I've read. This book is in a class all by itself.

Which scene was your favorite?

Once the possession really came "out"

Who was the most memorable character of The Exorcist and why?

The demon...makes the hair on your neck and arms stand up.

Any additional comments?

I refuse to watch this movie at night and after listening to this I'm positive I wouldn't listen to this audiobook at night either. As he's reading I can see the scenes in the movie...vividly!

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking? #1: Don't go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy. #2: Don't pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be certifiably crazy. So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Crazy #2? When Blake Crouch and Jack Kilborn face-off, the result is a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an "After School Special," SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.

Would you consider the audio edition of Serial Uncut to be better than the print version?

Yes. Reading it doesn't do it justification as hearing it...especially if the right person is reading it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Donaldson - a complete whack job. Would love a book focusing on his character. I like Lucy too. She's a good 'supporting' actor.

What does Patrick Lawlor and Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They make the characters believable. Patrick makes his character seem like they're real people.

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

Yes and I did while at work.

Any additional comments?

This book was funny but to be a serial killer I guess you have to be crazy. Love the interaction between Donaldson and Taylor and Donaldson and Lucy. To me those were the best parts.

It's the pharmaceutical breakthrough of the millennium. DruTech Industries proudly presents N-SOM, a pill that completely replaces eight hours of sleep. Feel totally refreshed, both physically and mentally, in just fifteen minutes a night. The profit potential is boundless. Mankind's productivity will go through the roof. One third of a person's life could be recovered, for only ten dollars a dose. The FDA sends CDER agent Dr. Bill May to green light N-SOM for American use. The pressure, both political and monetary, is tremendous.

Would you listen to Disturb again? Why?

Yes. First time I listened to it I did it for 'background noise' the next time I will pay closer attention to it.

Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

Manny/David. I love this narrator. He did an awesome job on "The List".

Any additional comments?

I became a Kilborn/Konrath fan after reading Afraid and have since read other books by him. I'm pretty sure I read this book years ago but don't remember it. It was humorous but not as much as some of his other books. Still a decent listen.

At Butler House a series of grisly murders over a century have led many to believe it's haunted. To one scientist it's the perfect place for an experiment in fear. Eight people, each chosen because they lived through a terrifying experience, are offered a million dollars to spend one night at Butler House. They can take whatever they want with them - religious items, survival gear, and weapons. All they need to do is last the night.

What did you love best about Haunted House?

I've read a lot of his books so I'm familiar with the characters. I like how they've all been through different tragedy's but all have that one thing in common.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have two: Moni Draper and Dr. Belgium. I love Moni because she's the odd-ball of the group. At one point everyone else was gainfully employed except Moni. She 's the street girl who learned and lived the hard way. Oh and she funny and foul-mouthed too. Dr. Belgium was just funny.

Which character – as performed by Rob Shapiro – was your favorite?

Hard to pick just one but I guess Dr. Belgium (especially once he's doped up.)

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

I laughed a lot. I've listened to this book several times already and plan to listen to it several more times.

Any additional comments?

I've read all the Konrath/Kilborn books that involve these characters previously (including Haunted House) and have been waiting for this to become an audio book. Rob Shapiro did one hell of a job narrating this book. You could not have picked a better narrator.

THE LIST is a bit of a departure for Konrath, who is known for his Jack Daniels mystery series. It's a technothriller about a group of ten people who each have tattoos of numbers on the bottoms their feet, and don't know why. One of them, a Chicago Homicide cop named Tom Mankowski, has had one of these strange tattoos since birth. When he investigates a violent murder and discovers the victim also has a tattooed number, it sets the ball rolling for an adventure of historic proportions.

What made the experience of listening to The List the most enjoyable?

The narrator. B Darcie did an excellent job.

What did you like best about this story?

I actually read this book a few years ago and enjoyed it. It's different from the other Konrath/Kilborn books I've previously read but I still enjoyed the story a lot. I will listen to this again...eventually.

What about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance did you like?

This book dealt with several characters and he was able to execute different tones for each one.

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

I laughed a lot. Loved the Abe Lincoln character. Too bad he didn't have a bigger part in the book.

It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal. Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Trapped?

When the "real" Martin was revealed.

With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull's razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.
