I absolutely love Douglas Adams, I think that his writing shows how much of a genius he is, not just when it comes to sci-fi but comedy as well. This book was clever funny and the only downside was it just wasn’t long enough. I can’t wait to listen to the next one.

This was not what I was expecting but over all a really good book. The reader dose not do any voices but his own which is a little bit of a bummer. But it’s still really good!

But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote...and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

I found it to okay. Mr. king barrows heavily from other writers and I feel that, that takes away from his overall story telling. The story was fun but not what I would call scary which is what I was expecting, and in that, it was disappointing. However over all I liked it just fine and it was fun to listen to.

Although I am not a huge fan of the Harry Potter books, I find them poorly written, and they have a menial story line, berry little character development, and let's face it Harry is a whiny little bitch....

I do find this to be the best book out of all of them it was really fun to listen to after having read it a few times over and I think that Jim dale dose an awesome job reading them.
