Even Jeff Harding does a terrible job on this load of drivel, he sounds sarcastic throughout the entire book, cant say I blame him, it goes back and forth between uninteresting characters, I wrote a scathing review about the previous book and this one is even worse. Appalling book, dont waste your credit. Too disappointing to even bother going further indepth with this review.

Should have been a short story

After just listening to If It Bleeds, which was terrific, my next book was this one. I expected great things, I got 10 hours out of the 13.23 hours of repetitive drivel. Stephen padded this thin story line out way beyond what is an enjoyable book. Very disappointed, This would have been a good short story for his next compilation.

All four stories are typical Stephen King at his outstanding best. I was not that enthralled with The Outsider and Mr Mercedes as audiobooks but when I purchased both miniseries for viewing, I loved them both, and the continuation of Holly's battle with an outsider in this book is excellent. . I also listened to both the above audiobooks again and got so much more from them after viewing the series. Stephen is Stephen, the whole world will have listened to his books by now, and you get what you paid for. Brilliant. The reader is also fantastic.

I have liked all Lynda's early Jane Tennyson books, but this one is a craker, the best of the early Jane books. The storylines tie together wonderfully, the details are brilliant and Jane is now coming into her own. Highly recommended if you like Jane Tennyson stories, even if you havent read any previous books, the story stands alone on its own merits as a good read.

Like Preston & Child ..... but this time

Audible really need to read these third rate stories before sucking people in to purchase them. The synopsis looked great and I have read these authors previously and liked the books to varying degrees. The storyline for this booked looked very interesting, however, it is truly formulaic and weak in every way. Nothing new at all, the plot line is fourth rate at best I was very, very disappointed and returned this non event book.

This book doesnt directly follow Nightriders but the modern day ancestor of one of the characters in Nightriders. Its exciting, has a terrific plot and the reader is excellent. Nightriders does not need to be read before this one, its a totally stand alone book, and is a fantastic read. I cant wait for Ashley Blake's next book, both this one and Nightriders are brilliant.

Never heard of the Catalpa Rescue, now I know why

I have read many of Peter Fitzsimons books and cant think of any I havent loved, except for this one. Batavia and Mutiny on the Bounty were fantastic, together with his books about the First World War. The whole Catalpa story was totally uninteresting and did not involve me at all. Peter's forwards are always fantastic and I was looking forward to this book. My opinion was the whole book lacked excitement and I couldnt relate to anyone in it.

This is read by an Aussie, about Aussies, I dont know what connection Candice Fox has with James Patterson, but it totally works. I have listened to all four in the series and they move along at a cracking pace that kept me interested from first to last page. A excellent listen and its great to hear an Aussie reading it, Kathryn Hartman does a perfect job. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and the previous three in the series. To get the best out of these four books it would probably be best to start with book one, as this gives the background to Harriet Blue, the heroine.

This is one of the best books Dean koontz has written, and he has written some good ones. It compares with Swan Song, Carrion Comfort and The Stand, although much shorter than any of those superlative classics. For me, this book is breathlessly exciting. A deep sense of doom and hopelessness for mankind is contrasted by the two main characters hope for their futures and their clever, relentless pursuit of the villians. I always wished Dean had followed through with a second book.
