When Dr. Louis Creed takes a new job and moves his family to the idyllic, rural town of Ludlow, Maine, this new beginning seems too good to be true. Yet despite Ludlow's tranquility, there's an undercurrent of danger that lingers...like the graveyard in the woods near the Creeds' home, where generations of children have buried their beloved pets.

Unsettling and scary, an unflinching portrayal of a man driven to unspeakable lengths after tragedy befalls his family. One of King's absolute best, made all the more gripping with excellent narration.

Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny empathetic powers that made The Right Stuff a classic.

An intriguing story of test pilots who became astronauts in the dawn of the space race. Tom Wolfe tells their stories in his typical entertaining, vivid and thorough fashion. Dennis Quaid does a great job as narrator though sometimes the wordy passages get the better of him.

Tom Wolfe's best-selling modern classic tells the story of Sherman McCoy, an elite Wall Street bond trader who has it all: wealth, power, prestige, a Park Avenue apartment, a beautiful wife, and an even more beautiful mistress - until one wrong turn sends Sherman spiraling downward into a humiliating fall from grace. A car accident in the Bronx involving Sherman, his girlfriend, and two young lower-class black men sets a match to the incendiary racial and social tensions of 1980s New York City.

Tom Wolfe's dynamic writing style was brought to life and made even more vivid by the excellent narrator. Fantastic listening.
