I found this book a sruggle to read which is why I decided to get it on audio. It did help me to get to the end of the book and I have now got the last book in the series. I did find the reader a bit off putting however as their vice was not really to my liking. That is just my opinion however, others may disagree x

They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.

I am a huge fan of dean koontz and this did not dissapoint. With a mix of the supernatural, sci fi and a Foch of crime scene investigation this listen is well balanced. Because of this audio I have now started listening to other dean koontz books and I must say he is as amazing as ever x

I usually find terry Pratchett hard to read but listening to this made all the difference. I have now stared to listen to his other books also. Dodger is nothing like any of his other work however. This is a new spin on the old tale of Oliver Twist and I must say he has done a brilliant job. I could not stop listening until the very end x

This book is so funny just like the author. I loved listening to this as it is the sort of book you can stop and come back to and still know what is going on. I cannot wait for Dawn French to bring out bother book. Her first two were fantastic and I just know her third will be amazing x

A handful of people. From different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them, drawing them to the Tranquility Motel - where the terrifying truth was waiting.
