    For listeners new to the Dark Tower saga, The Wind Through the Keyhole is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. It is a story within a story, which features both the younger and older gunslinger Roland on his quest to find the Dark Tower. Fans of the existing seven books in the series will also delight in discovering what happened to Roland and his ka-tet between the time they leave the Emerald City and arrive at the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis.

    Story

    I'm not sure why but I did not find this book very enjoyable. I loved the Dark Tower series very very much and found it hard to put the book down, but I found this one a chore to listen to for the most part unfortunately...

    I am not sure if my experience would have been any different if I listened to it after Wizard and glass but I doubt it. Stephen King is the author bit his performance is no where near as good as the narrator of the rest of the dark tower!

    At least I quenched my curiosity.

    A scientific experiment begins, and as the button is pressed, the unexpected occurs: everyone in the world goes to sleep for a few moments while everyone's consciousness is catapulted more than twenty years into the future. At the end of those moments, when the world reawakens, all human life is transformed by foreknowledge.

    I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more than, I enjoyed Calculating God, by the same great author!

    I will definitely be looking to listen or read his other books, and perhaps Hominid will be my next title of choice!

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Story

    I have learned a few things from this book, but found so much hate and arrogance in it. There is also a lot of repetition, self praise from the author to his own self, obvious exaggeration, and almost zero positive things to say about Iraqis, as opposed to the numerous harsh and hateful things narrated.

    This is the first Audible book that I find myself compelled to request from Audible to swap.

    After finishing this book, I find myself completely uninterested in watching the Bradley Cooper movie with its same title, based on it.

    Lucas Corso, middle-aged, tired, and cynical, is a book detective, a mercenary hired to hunt down rare editions for wealthy and unscrupulous clients. When a well-known bibliophile is found hanged, leaving behind part of the of the original manuscript of Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers, Corso is brought in to authenticate the fragment. Soon the unsuspecting Corso is drawn into a swirling plot involving devil worship, occult practices, and swashbuckling derring-do.

    The Ninth Gate, starring Johnny Depp, was more enjoyable than this audiobook in my opinion.
