    Nazca, once only an isolated settlement in the midst of the Peruvian desert, is today the meeting place for archaeologists from around the world. From here you can fly over the celebrated Nazca pampa and appreciate the massive scale of the extraordinary markings on the surrounding landscape. Some of these lines are over twenty kilometers long! Drawing on over thirty years of study, Erich von Daniken examines the various theories that attempt to explain the Nazca phenomena in terms of religious ritual, ancient roads, and astrological symbols.

    Story

    For a first publication this was an awesome piece of work. The author doesn't assume that we are ridiculously stupid and actually fits the pieces of this mystery together very well. Surprisingly, there were a couple of twist that we didn't see coming and I was very impressed at the hidden foreshadowing.

    Story

    Decent sci-fi, but far from Patterson's usual storytelling.

    Worth a listen in the background while working on a project, but I think I might have put the book down and not picked it back up, for the effort to read it might not be worth it.

    Just my opinion.

    The sound of snapping twigs closed in on the five teenagers enjoying an evening around a glowing campfire at Gitchie Manitou State Park. The night of music and laughter had taken a dark turn. Evil loomed just beyond the tree line, and before the night was over, one of the Midwest's most horrific mass murders had left its bloodstains spewed across the campsite. One managed to survive and would come to be known as the "Gitchie Girl".

    S. Winchester says: "Tense, horrific, inspiring. A real horror movie"

    The Gitchie Girl is someone I would aspire to be like, after reading her story of resilience through traumas and ending in the triumph of life!

    Exciting "story" and well written & narrated.

    Six true crime authors come together to present the second annual Serial Killers True Crime Anthology, which depicts 13 horrific cases of serial homicide told in detail. Each case will take the listener from the background of the serial killer to the crime scene, investigation, trial, and sentencing.

    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Don Kline?

    NO....... NEVER.... in fact, I recommend this guy gets a new career, or some better coaching on how to narrate- his first performance I purchased was WORSE than this one, and ruined the story... I don't know how anyone can publish such a performance- doesn't anyone listen to the product before completion????

    Let outlines help you write a better book! Writers often look upon outlines with fear and trembling. But when properly understood and correctly wielded, the outline is one of the most powerful weapons in a writer's arsenal.

    Nothing really matters says: "Doesn't explain how to outline"
    "Only problem was the reading speed BETWEEN sentences or paragraphs."

    Story

    The information was excellent- a great collection of easy to understand "how-to-outline-a-novel" instructions. The only concern was the speed between sentences or paragraph (topics)... It felt like listening to a high school project's poor audio splicing job... I had to check the speed of the reading setting, incase I had accidentally changed it to 1.5X, but I hadn't.

    Once you get used to that distraction, it's easy to follow and the information is as good as any other outline guide I've listened to.

    WORTH THE LISTEN.

    A New York Times best-selling author of both fiction and nonfiction, Anne Lamott was also the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. As much a guide to writing as an exploration of the emotional challenges of being a writer, Bird by Bird offers a candid and often humorous look at how to tackle these varied obstacles.

    Alice says: "A funny listen, but no writing samples to speak of"
    "Unexpectedly Funny & Informative"
    Overall

    Any aspiring writer will appreciate the author's insight into the experiences of writing... Seriously- a nice break from the "how-to" books, yet, still gives you the "how-to's"
