  • Ireland

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Frank Delaney
    • Narrated By Frank Delaney
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    One evening in 1951, an itinerant storyteller arrives unannounced at a house in the Irish countryside. In exchange for a bed and a warm meal, he invites his hosts and their neighbors to join him by the wintry fireside, and begins to tell formative stories of Ireland's history. Ronan, a 9-year-old boy, grows so entranced by the storytelling that, when the old man leaves abruptly under mysterious circumstances, the boy devotes himself to finding him again.

    S. Marie says: "A wonderfully read history of Ireland"

    I have a 50 minute commute. This is a great relaxing and fun read. The author's voice is wonderful and I love the vignettes. If traffic gets a little heavy, or somebody cuts me off, it doesnt seem to be important compared to the wonderful stories' flow. Sometimes I get to work and have to stay in the car a little longer to get to a natural pause in these lively stories.

  • Odd Thomas

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Dean Koontz
    • Narrated By David Aaron Baker
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "great listen"

    It started out a little weird when the living dead starting showing up, but got to be tremendous fun and intrigue. I'm about 75% through with the book and almost look forward to driving 50 minutes to a job that has become dreadful.

    Clever and excellent use of the language and moves well.

  • The Murder Room: An Adam Dalgliesh Mystery

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 15 mins)
    • By P.D. James
    • Narrated By Charles Keating
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The Dupayne, a small private museum in London, is in turmoil. As its trustees argue over whether it should be closed, one of them is brutally and mysteriously murdered. Yet even as Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team proceed with their investigation, a second corpse is discovered. Someone in the Dupayne is prepared to kill and kill again. Still more sinister, the murders appear to echo the notorious crimes of the past featured in one of the museum's galleries: the Murder Room.

    Jim says: "Classic P.D. James"

    I found the writing tedious, the plot silly, the characters self absorbed. The only fun part of the listen was deciphering British speak.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Orson Scott Card
    • Narrated By Stefan Rudnicki, Harlan Ellison, Gabrielle de Cuir
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "enders game"

    Man - I am having a great time with and my OTIS thingy. I have listened to about 10 books so far during commutes and only one was a stinker. Enders Game is wonderful, and I don't really dig Science Fiction much any more. I did as a kid, but now I am really into political intrigue and legal intrigue novels. This book is great and you will enjoy it.

  • The Da Vinci Code

    • ABRIDGED (7 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By Dan Brown
    • Narrated By Paul Michael

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Jonas says: "Overall Good"

    I found the plot to be thin. Kept hoping for things to pick up, but all in all a very disappointing book.

  • Thunder in the Deep

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 39 mins)
    • By Joe Buff
    • Narrated By John Bedford Lloyd

    The Challenger is the weapon of the future, a ceramic-hulled nuclear submarine with the most advanced electronics ever created. Acting captain Jeffrey Fuller's mission is to rescue the fast attack sub Texas, now lying on the bottom of the Atlantic. But a newly resurrected and fanatically militaristic Germany knows where the Texas is, too, and it knows the Challenger is coming. It is the Challenger the Germans want, dispatching their own high-tech supersub to destroy her.

    Todd says: "Just didn't cut it!"
    "boom boom bang, but no plot"

    This book was devoid of any notion of a plot. It was just a mix of macho killings, nuclear and tactical and hand to hand. Waste of time - amateurish except perhaps for details of submarine weaponry. But that has been done and done better before.
