  • The Templar Legacy

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Steve Berry
    • Narrated By Paul Michael

    The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was, and its true nature could change the modern world.

    Jane says: "Overall, a good read"
    "A surprise"

    I didn't think there was room for another book dealing with the "Rennes-Le-Chateau mystery", but thoroughly enjoyed this author's approach centering on the Templar's perspective. Of course, there will be some readers who will disagree because although this is a work of fiction, it may challenge some canonical beliefs. I have observed in other reviews that this can be the sole criteria for panning a book regardless of its other virtues. That said, although long, I enjoyed the listen. I also appreciated the authors notes differentiating historical, scriptual, and fictional source material.

  • The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries

    • ORIGINAL (3 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By The Great Courses, Neil deGrasse Tyson
    • Narrated By Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson

    Everything we now know about the universe - from the behavior of quarks to the birth of galaxies - has come from people who've been willing to ponder the unanswerable. And with the advent of modern science, great minds have turned to testing and experimentation rather than mere thought as a way of grappling with some of the universe's most vexing dilemmas. So what is our latest picture of some of the most inexplicable features of the universe? What still remains to be uncovered and explored by today's scientists?

    Kristi Richardson says: ""The Universe is in us!""
    "Too broad a subject"

    The lecturer who clearly has knowledge of modern physics, cosmology, etc has tried to introduce these concepts in a very short lecture series. The result is that as a primer I believe it is confusing and sounds like he is rambling at times.

  • The Higgs Boson and Beyond

    • ORIGINAL (6 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By The Great Courses
    • Narrated By Professor Sean Carroll

    In this 12-lecture masterpiece of scientific reporting, you'll learn everything you need to know to fully grasp the significance of this discovery, including the basics of quantum mechanics; the four forces that comprise the Standard Model of particle physics; how these forces are transmitted by fields and particles; and the importance of symmetry in physics.

    Jerome Robbins says: "Masterfully done"
    "Masterfully done"

    This lecturer provides sufficient background to make comprehensible a very arcane body of knowledge based on.complex mathematics while only alluding to the math and not requiring the listener to get lost in those details.

  • The Wheel of Darkness

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child
    • Narrated By Rene Auberjonois
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    FBI Agent Pendergast has taken Constance on a whirlwind Grand Tour. They head to Tibet, where Pendergast intensively trained in martial arts and spiritual studies. At a remote monastery, they learn that a rare and dangerous artifact the monks have been guarding for generations has been stolen. Pendergast agrees to take up the search. The trail leads him and Constance to the maiden voyage of the Queen Victoria passenger liner - and to an Atlantic crossing fraught with terror.

    Henrik says: "Answer to two of the questions you might have ..."
    "Can't wait"

    After finishing a Preston/Childs novel, I always look forward to their next release. I wasn't disappointed with this one, except that I now have to wait once again for Pendergast to re- appear. Of course some of the plot may seem far-fetched; but if you seek reality in a book whose protagonist is a wealth scion cum F.B.I. agent/mystic with an in depth knowledge of just about everything, perhaps this series is not for you. If you want an enjoyable thriller, don't miss it! Also, although I am a big fan of Scott Brick, I agree that the narrator did an excellent job.

No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

    "Great listen!!"

    This is the first book that gave me "sore ears" because I couldn't stop listening! If you enjoy murder mystery genre, this ia s real winner!

  • Brimstone

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child
    • Narrated By Rene Auberjonois

    Behind the gates of a fabulous Hampton estate, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers the carnage of a gruesome crime, a nightmare of seemingly supernatural origin. The smoldering remains of infamous art critic Jeremy Grove, a melted cross branding his chest, are found in a locked, barricaded attic. The hoofprint singed into the floorboards and the smell of brimstone recall the legendary horrors that befall those who make a pact with the Devil.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Couldn't put it down"
    "Entertaining plot-but the ending?"

    I enjoyed this book, but was also troubled by the introduction of a character that didn't appear to be part of the plot, but rather a setup for the sequel (unless I missed something). Reminiscent of the old movie serials- get them excited waiting for the next installment.

  • The Teeth of the Tiger

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Tom Clancy
    • Narrated By Stephen Lang

    Charged with spotting terrorist threats, the top-secret "Campus" has its hands full when Middle East thugs and Colombian drug lords join forces. New Campus recruits include Jack Ryan Jr., son of master spy John Patrick Ryan, now President.

    J. Anderson says: "The Teeth of the Tiger"
    "Good-Bye Tom!"

    I agree with previous reviewers. After wasting a credit on Red Rabbit, I reluctantly decided to give this book a try since I was such a big Clancy fan. MISTAKE! I feel that abridging a Clancy novel is removing the essence of what makes his boks unique. If the unabridged versions can't be released, he would do himself a favor to forget about Audible offerings. The plot and character development were almost amateurish. I felt like I was listening to a high school term paper. And the ending! ( there was none) brought me back to the old movie serials. The difference is that I am definitely NOT waiting for the next episode.
