The Dead Zone is a classic Stephen King, published in 1979, now available in audiobook and read by James Franco. The Dead Zone isn’t my favorite Stephen King, but that’s like comparing chocolate ice cream. With the narration by James Franco, they did a major push to get this one out there and “reread” by the masses. There is always a difference in reading and hearing it on audiobook, I think of audiobooks as performances – like a play of a book. And it’s even better when I’ve read the book, and now get to hear it on audiobook. Like an encore. This was an all-star encore!
The second in the series, but a stand-alone by all rights, BURNING BRIGHT by Nick Petrie definitely channeled books like the Jason Bourne series. It was action-packed and had a modern, unique perspective about the political climate.
Kresley Cole is a powerhouse in the PNR genre. If you are a fan of the genre and you haven’t started the Immortals After Dark series, you are missing out. WICKED ABYSS is the 18th book in the series and not really characters most of the fans of the series could get behind. We’re always hoping that one of the “left-hanging” characters will get their HEA, but then she throws at us, characters that we haven’t really heard about, or really, haven’t gotten attached to.
If you are looking for your next audiobook download, look no further. The full cast production of Sylvian Neuvel’s science fiction masterpiece is a MUST READ/LISTEN. Written in the journalistic narrator style that has been popularized by apocalyptic fiction., I think the Themis Files is the perfect book to experience in audiobook form, especially with the full cast line-up. The production was perfect and gave this novel star-power with the delivery.
One of the best books I've read in a long time, All Our Wrong Todays, was a far-reaching, insightful, and witty, novel, disguised as a shallow time-travel piece. I cried, I laughed, I yelled in frustration, as I read, Elan Mastai's debut, in was an emotional roller-coaster.read more
Finding Gideon was marketed as a stand-alone, even though there are more stories in this series, and technically it is, but I did feel that I fell feet first into a story that I wasn’t ready for. I think it had to do with the main POV in the beginning which was Medianoche, which starts out in a place I didn’t want to be. I didn’t like him, I didn’t want to read about him…and it kept increasing.
Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series has been a favorite of mine for several years, and by book 10 (10!!!) these characters are like old friends. I love paranormal stories, and Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thomson series is one of the best. She had my attention at the first line:
