I am a fan of Torchwood on BBC. The audiobook was very good and I would recommend it. However, sometimes it felt like the author was trying a little too hard to make things exciting. Still a good listen.

Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

A Haunting Tale

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-14-08

Joe Hill's "Heart-Shaped Box" was a huge surprise. He is an outstanding writer, and the tale he weaves is hypnotic. Joe is a detail writer, and in the frist 3rd of the book, it would have been easy to stop listening. But I was hopelessly drawn into the tale. I stuck with it, and what a fabulous and haunting tale it turned out to be! Well worth a listen.

Advanced Energy Anatomy guides you to a new understanding of how archetypes and other unconscious forces relate to problems of health, addiction, self-esteem, and victimhood, while opening you to partnership with the divine power that makes everything in life possible. It is "so well organized and intimately expressed," says AudioFile, "that repeated listening and sharing with friends will be hard to resist."

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.

Stephen King's second novel, Salem's Lot, is the story of a mundane town under siege from the forces of darkness. Considered one of the most terrifying vampire novels ever written, it cunningly probes the shadows of the human heart and the insular evils of small-town America.

From the minds of multi-million selling suspense authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker comes House, an epic supernatural thriller that gives a new meaning to the phrase "haunted house". In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods. They seek refuge in an old house that's been vacated for years, or so they think.

Though the story is interesting at times, but the reader can be hard to understand. He reads quite quickly through the action sections of the book, and I had to rewind several sections to get the gist. Listen to a sample. You be the judge.

Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.
