Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood county in their pick-up truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around-until Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks right up their alley.But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg.

I loved all the characters. Sucked me in after a few minutes. Hilarious and well rounded characters. I feel like there needs to be more stories on these two.

Claire has her share of challenges. Like being a genius in a school that favours beauty over brains; homicidal girls in her dorm, and finding out that her college town is overrun with the living dead. On the up side, she has a new boyfriend with a vampire-hunting dad. But when a local fraternity throws the Dead Girls' Dance, hell is really going to break loose.

I rather enjoyed the story . The characters are fun and it was all very entertaining. The only thing that seriously bothers me is the narrator. She puts on this very whiny voice. It's extremely grating. Her male voices are akin to Monty Python , though vice versa. I swear dogs can hear her when she does Eve's parts. If you can get past the god awful narration, then the book is good fun.

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius. Warlock Holmes is an idiot. A font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart companion. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety and save him from a gruesome death every now and again.

Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

He thinks he sees a flash of emotion in her eyes. Sympathy? Then it's gone. 'Whatever you think this is going to be like,' she whispers, 'it's going to be worse.' When beautiful serial killer Gretchen Lowell captured her last victim - the man in charge of hunting her down - she quickly established who was really in control of the investigation. So why, after ten days of horrifying physical and mental torture, did she release Detective Archie Sheridan from the brink of death and hand herself in?

J.W. Wells seemed to be a respectable establishment, but the company now paying Paul Carpenter's salary is in fact a deeply sinister organisation with a mighty peculiar management team. Paul thought he was getting the hang of it (particularly when he fell head over heels for his colleague Sophie), but death is never far away when you work at J.W. Wells, unlike the stapler - that's always going AWOL. Our love-struck hero is about to discover that custard is definitely in the eye of the beholder. And that it really stings.

I love these books. Very disappointing that they only have a few Tom Holt books. I'd love to purchase the whole collection. For fans of Terry Pratchett. Oh, and the narrator is perfect in the role and I love his goblin voice!

A kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth from best-selling storytelling legend Neil Gaiman. A BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Anansi Boys, featuring an all-star cast lead by Lenny Henry, will premiere on Christmas Day 2017. Fat Charlie Nancy is not actually fat. He was fat once but he is definitely not fat now. No, right now Fat Charlie Nancy is angry, confused and more than a little scared - right now his life is spinning out of control, and it is all his dad's fault.

Lenny was the perfect fit for this book. He really brought the characters to life. I especially loved when he did tiger. The whole book sucked me in after a few minutes and I couldn't stop listening. Good Omens used to be my fav Nail Gaiman book, but this has taken it's place big time. If your a Pratchett fan you'll love it. What a great wee adventure.

Jack and Michael Whitehall perform their laugh-out-loud autobiography Him & Me as a unique dual-voiced comedy audiobook, filled with ad-libs, asides, and comic dialogue to create a uniquely funny listen. Jack and Michael open up the rich and plentiful family lore archives on topics such as Jack’s nanny’s enormous feet, Michael’s lifetime touchline ban from Jack’s prep-school and the Whitehall collection of downright weird and eccentric relatives.

Doug Stanhope is one of the most critically acclaimed and stridently unrepentant comedians of his generation. What will surprise some is that he owes so much of his dark and sometimes uncomfortably honest sense of humor to his mother, Bonnie.

Darkly funny. Really diffrent book. It feels like sitting in a room with my guy pals and they're telling me drunken stories. Not for the faint heart... But for those who have a dark sense of humor. I loved it.

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent, and while they sleep they go to another place....

This book is so absobing. I could not stop listening. Even when I wasn't listening, I was thinking about when I could find some time to hear more. Highly recommend this. Not just to King fans, but to all. This is a modern classic. I truly hope they make a tv show of it.
