I really enjoy reading but don't have the time so audible is a perfect solution, listen while doing boring tasks.

    Story

    This is a great novel from Joe Hill, it's a little uncomfortable in places (ok, I'm a bit prudish and the unnecessary sexual usage made me squirm a bit) but overall it's a great book. It takes you right into Vic McQueen’s life from 8 to 34, it really in depth without waffle which can sometimes happen even from the best writers.
    It's one of the most engaging scary stories I have read in a long long time and I was really wondering what was going to happen, I felt the end was a little too tidy - it was wrapped nicely and left with an opening for a second novel and the thing that lost it one star; one of the characters which was built up (like all the others) layer by layer to give you the whole complete, damaged person suddenly doubled in intelligence and made a great play which really really bugged me, big time, if you write a character, they are that character, you don't get to add in s**t like that just because you can, it's not right. It was even more annoying because it is such an in depth, engaging story that this almost booted me out of story, also it felt lazy, the scene worked really well but that character just could not have pulled it off like that, he could not and it could have been done 'right'.
    But I'm emphasising the negative, this is a great story, as I've said completely engaging and enthralling, I'm been deliberately finding reasons to listen to it from making trips out to going to bed early.
    Oh and the reader, Kate Mulgrew, she is just - well I won't use my favourite expression just in case - but she is incredible, absolute incredible, blew me away. She’s got an amazing voice, it was so well suited to this story and the characters, considering the range, she has an angry girl, who becomes an angry, trouble woman, a chilled fat guy, children, a deranged child stealer, an incredibly stupid but dangerous guy, cops and she’s gives them all distant personalities and does a great job with each and every one. I would consider listen to something purely based on the fact she is reading it because she is that good.

    So go on, buy this!!!

    Summer. Massachusetts. An old Silver Wraith with a frightening history. A story about one serial killer and his lingering, unfinished business.Anyone could be next. We're going to Christmasland . . .NOS4A2 is an old-fashioned horror novel in the best sense. Claustrophobic, gripping and terrifying, this is a story that will have you on the edge of the seat while you read, and leaving the lights on while you sleep.

  • "Typical SK"

    Overall

    Typical short story by SK with another horror writer JH. I enjoyed this story but thought it was cheeky to release this alone therefore giving very little for your money considering most short stories come in at least 4s and you would never buy a short story alone but I had to have it.

    In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are growing more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

  • "BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!"

    Overall

    I'm Scott Sigler's new biggest fan, it's sci-fi, horror, real life. He's influenced by Stephen King and it shows but he's completely go his own voice and style. I absolutely love it and am eagerly awaiting the next book. I love the fact the author narrates them. The characters are real and likeable, the action is fast paced, it's gripping. The science is sound without getting confusing (for those of us who aren't too clued up). It's great, just buy it! No wait, it's a sequel, just buy everything he has written that you can get your hands on.

    The modern audience hasn't had a chance to truly appreciate the unknowing dread that readers would have felt when reading Bram Stoker's original 1897 manuscript. Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

    In Stephen King's mesmerizing new masterpiece - his biggest, most riveting novel since The Stand - a Maine town and its inhabitants are isolated from the world by an invisible, impenetrable dome. Celebrated storyteller Stephen King returns to his roots in this tour de force featuring more than 100 characters - some heroic, some diabolical - and a supernatural element as baffling and chilling as any he's ever conjured.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive-and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills-and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit-he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    There are some odd things about Nate's new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn't perfect, it's livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don't nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela's apartment. And Tim's. And Veek's.

The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs.

    Aus dem Schatten einer Baumgruppe lösten sich jetzt ein paar Reiter. Sie hatten ihn schon eine Zeit lang beobachtet: wie er im Gras schlief, dann aufwachte und etwas orientierungslos in der Gegend herumlief, als ob er jemanden suchte. Aber vielleicht war der Fremde auch nur ein Köder, um sie in eine Falle zu locken. Diese wildaussehenden, am ganzen Körper behaarten Kreaturen suchten mit unruhigen Blicken die Umgebung ab, ob sich nicht irgendwo im Buschwerk der Feind versteckte.

    Ven Khalida is a land of magic and gods. Settlements abound, both large and small, each with a life of their own and hidden secrets. Except Rottwealth. A backwater village, surrounded by mountains and ignored by most, nothing of merit ever leaves the valley. Aside, of course, from the mystical plant which shares its name. A plant that can heal even the most dire wounds in a matter of moments, and flourishes within the swamp that takes up part of the valley.
