The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar or a parking lot or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.

Good narration but not happy with story ending. I never liked NJ any way a little too plastic.

Being the middle child has its ups and downs. But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether. After putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family, including: Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, who has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother.

As an adoptive parent I feel this story was realistic and empathetic to all involved. Well done.

Beautifully written story. As the adoptive mother of a, now adult, Korean girl I feel the adoption experiences were portrayed accurately and with sensitivity. That storyline together with the intriguing history of the Yunnan Province in China I simply couldnt stop listening.

Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

I'm not a huge fan of the genre but Steven King has a way of touching home with whatever he writes. I laughed, cried and was afraid. The narration was spot-on. The whole book was an experience and I left feeling changed. An unfortunately rare experience in my opinion.

A small Georgia town erupts in panic when a young college professor is found brutally mutilated in the local diner. But it's only when town pediatrician and coroner Sara Linton does the autopsy that the full extent of the killer's twisted work becomes clear. Sara's ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, leads the investigation - a trail of terror that grows increasingly macabre when another local woman is found crucified a few days later.

Very good book, but the rape scences are way too graphic for me. and I suspect, other abuse survivors.
