    A riveting audiobook about the dramatic changes that will transform the world as we know it. Americans are anxious about the future - the world's and their own. Rosenberg explains the enormous political, economic, and spiritual changes that are underway in the world's most important countries. He answers why these changes are happening, what they mean, and provides insights from exclusive interviews with world leaders.

    Where does Epicenter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the none fiction books I've read I would put it in the middle.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the background information although a lot of it was conjecture.


    What does Joel C Rosenberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would not have finished the book if I had just read it. The voice kept my interest up.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Another apocolypse movie...

  • A Higher Call: An Incredible True Story of Combat and Chivalry in the War-Torn Skies of World War II

    Story

    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

    JerryL says: "An Absolutely Incredcredible Audiobook!"
    "Amazing true story."

    Story
    Would you listen to A Higher Call again? Why?

    I definitely plan to listen to A Higher Call again! The first listen was to find out the stories of the pilots. The second time will be to absorb the surrounding circumstances. I've never read a book that contained the German (please note - not Nazi) viewpoint of the war and I found it fascinating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am a WWII history buff and that is what first attracted me to the book. But the flight knowledge and background of the individual situations kept me rapt with attention.


    Which character – as performed by Robertson Dean – was your favorite?

    All characters were well performed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Seeing or even just reading about the aircraft of this period always brings me to tears. The B-17 in particular is such a beautiful machine. Combine that with thoughts of the lives they took...and the lives they saved is just tumultuous for me. The stories of the men and how a moment's decision affected so many lives is so moving.


    Any additional comments?

    If Hollywood were to ever make a movie of A Higher Call I don't know if I would want to go see it or not. I don't think any script could do justice to the book.

  • A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5

    Story

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    James says: "Not as good as previous books"
    "Why, Roy? Why?"

    Story
    What did you like best about A Dance with Dragons? What did you like least?

    I'm forcing myself to keep listening to a Dance With Dragons because I addicted to the series. Dotrice has destroyed my enjoyment by making all the women sound like old hags! Even when describing Dany as a beautiful, young girl....he manages to make her sound like a horrid old crone.
    And way, way too many new characters introduced. And none that I can find an affinity for.


    If you’ve listened to books by George R. R. Martin before, how does this one compare?

    The other books and readings were wonderful but this one is just inexcusable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Roy Dotrice’s performances?

    Before I purchase another Dotrice Dragon book I'll wait to read reviews about the narration of book five....if there is a book five.
