This is my second Ceepak and Danny book. I really like the way you get to know the characters in the story. It is very easy to follow. I love mysteries and I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The narrator did such a good job with the voices. I always knew who was speaking. Well worth a credit!

Enjoyed this very much. It was a bit on the dark side, very strange and creepy at times. My brother is a therapist so I know there are people in the world who have been emotionally damaged to the point of madness. Very good read!

The story started out pretty good but soon fell apart. The sound effects were irritating and hard to follow. Too unbelievable even for a ghost story. I will be getting my credit back for this one.

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

What a different time travel story. I loved the history, and living in the Dallas area myself for 30 years a lot of the places were familiar to me. I won't say too much about the story so I won't give anything away but I loved it and also loved the ending!! I have recommended this book to many of my book reading friends. Enjoy!

From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine.

I love the mixture of murder mystery and romance. Rourke is the perfect man for Eve. I will say that these books are not meant for youngsters, the love scenes get pretty steamy!

Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

Transported from the mid-twentieth century to New York City in the year 1882, Si Morley walks the fashionable "Ladies' Mile" of Broadway, is enchanted by the jingling sleigh bells in Central Park, and solves a 20th-century mystery by discovering its 19th-century roots. Falling in love with a beautiful young woman, he ultimately finds himself forced to choose between his lives in the present and the past. A story that will remain in the listener's memory, Time and Again is a remarkable blending of the troubled present and a nostalgic past....

I really wanted to like this book because Stephen King said it was good, but I guess I am too used to more fast paced books. I realize this book was written in the 1970's where things did move slower but I was always thinking "just get on with the story". I am 6 hours into the book and decided to quit. I hate that I won't get to find out what happened, but I just couldn't finish it. I do think it would make a good movie..
