    Story
    (625)

    When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story
    (637)

    A writer visits his retired grandparents in Florida to document their experience during the infamous siege of Leningrad. His grandmother won't talk about it, but his grandfather reluctantly consents. The result is the captivating odyssey of two young men trying to survive against desperate odds. Lev Beniov considers himself "built for deprivation." He's small, smart, and insecure, a Jewish virgin too young for the army, who spends his nights working as a volunteer firefighter with friends from his building.

    Paul says: "Stunning Tale. Great Narration."
    "Couldn't Stop Listening"

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

    The book is everything you want. Funny and sad but keeps you entertained from beginning to end.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Thieves?

    Too many to just pick one.


    What about Ron Perlman’s performance did you like?

    I wasn't sure at first if Hellboy could pull it off. Now I want to hear him again!


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

    It's too long for one sitting but I found myself finding time to listen more than other books.
