    In this groundbreaking historical expose, Douglas A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history - an Age of Neoslavery that thrived from the aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II.

    What did you love best about Slavery by Another Name?

    the in-depth of what happen and how it somehow got lost in time until now...


    Any additional comments?

    Its sad that this was allowed to happen from the President all the way down to normal people who called themselves Christians...What I don't understand is: Jewish People got a country, Native Americans got land of their own without Government control, and Black Americans got nothing for all the abused they received and continue to take to this day. Now after listening to this I see why Black American don't own or control any part of there life in American, because if they do it can all be taken away at a blink of an eye with laws the ruling class can place on them at any point in time. As a Black American I could not understand why we have been in this land for more than 400+ years and have nothing to show for it, other than government welfare and drugs to show our status as Americans in the eyes of the ruling class. I kept asking how did we get here with the masterful minds and hard willing people to endure all that pain and suffering of slavery and Jim Crow laws. The rules of the land can keep you down, yes some Black Americans can slip by and make it, but if a lot start to move then the ruling class change the rules to continue to hold back the many.

    In Book Six of Adrian's Undead Diary, no one near Adrian is safe. Many will make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that he can keep his loved ones protected at any cost, and rebuild a new, better world. In the Arms of Family also follows Kevin and Michelle as their stories entwine and bring them ever closer to the horrors that surround Adrian across the vast Atlantic Ocean. How long can they survive before the dead finish what they came to do?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, I love zombie stories and this one has teenagers in it and evil spirits as well...


    What about James Foster’s performance did you like?

    I think he is a good reader who is getting better as the book goes along.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    You must read all of them to understand this book, and I wish the writer would release a new book every four months or so, because I find myself having to listen to the previous book before listening to the new book since there are so many similar stories out there like "The Dead Series" zombie books

    Matt Hamilton's last words have led Daniel Ash and his team to the snow-covered town of Everton, Vermont. On a field just outside city limits sits an unassuming hut. But this is no innocent building. Inside is the entrance to the secret Project Eden base known as Dream Sky, the key to the project's success. Or its defeat, as Ash hopes. To give the team the best chance to succeed, resistance groups have moved into position outside project installations around the globe.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Down to be better than the print version?

    yes, if you multi task like me Audio give you more freedom...and Down will end up surprising you at the end if you have listen to the other books before this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Down?

    how easy it was to spy on the Project Eden, to know what I mean you need to listen to the book.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO, great narrator, and I would add him to one of the reasons I would buy a book read by him.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome series, but you would need to start at the beginning to understand how each book end up at Down...worth your time and money.

    What made the experience of listening to Zombie Fallout 5 the most enjoyable?

    The in-fighting among the characters with the smart comments that made you laugh throughtout.


    What other book might you compare Zombie Fallout 5 to and why?

    I love zombie books, this one get my opinion because it made me laugh. While listen to this book, you kno that feeling you get when you are on the cell phone bluetooth and people think you are talking to yourself, this what everyone around me felt when a part in the book made me laugh out loud.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end of each book the main character tell you his pass life story. He did some crazy things to make him who he was in the books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The reactions to the kids being killed by there parents when the end was near...but I think that was in one of his early books though. I listen to all five books back to back so I might be mixing books.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish it had a happy ending, but at least the only black guy of the book didn't die.
