    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    Overall

    A man of cloth capable of doing such things stretches one's imagination. It has a surprising ending though I already figured it out way before. Our hero here is truly a regular man. His actions are frustratingly mocked with errors. I won't recommend this to people who has respect and love for priests. It will be devastating.

    Henry Grim has never discovered a forbidden room in a foreign castle, or received a death threat over breakfast. All Henry knows is life as an orphaned servant boy at the Midsummer School, bullied by the privileged sons of aristocracy. But all that changes when Henry is the first commoner to pass the entrance exam for the prestigious Knightley Academy, where he will be trained as a modern-day knight alongside the cleverest and bravest fourteen-year-olds in the country.

    Overall

    This story is for kids. Dont wast your credit on this. The story is so childish It makes me cringe just to finish this off. I guess I was hoping for intricate plots. The premise of an orphaned boy making it to knight school should have set the stage for a good fantasy. Alas, No. The boy acts like a spoiled kid too and there goes your underdog story out the window.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Tiresome"
    Overall

    Like the pillars of the earth the story gets tiresome. Same as pillars, the story revolves around a few characters and the their misfortunes. Same plot of building and rape the story gets boring. 40 hrs of listening to this nonsense gets into your nerves.

    Defying their Black King in order to rally an attack on the peaceful Blue Isle, warrior-prince Rugar and his fearless daughter, Jewel, do not suspect that the islanders, under young prince Nicholas, have prepared to defend themselves.

    Lori Cheney says: "Bizarre but intriguing"
    "Lousy Story"
    Overall

    The narrator is ok. However, the story is very lousy. The author makes her principal characters brilliant in one and idiots the next just to make twists in the plot. It's like, there's no real characterization. I see now, how this novel can be made into multiple sequels. The author doesn't stick to the personality of her characters. Thereby, making multiple twists in the story. What a waste of credit.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    "Good story for 1 credit"
    Overall

    It starts slow at first I was tempted to stop at 5 hrs but it gets interesting from 7hrs to end. It's annoying at times how the author jumps to a future date and backtracking on a plot. This 40hr novel doesnt end in a sense. I think there's a sequel to this. I like Scott Brick as a narrator so It was worth the listen. The story dwells on a screwed up military science experiment that practically wiped out the world. It dwells on how people cope up with it and how a little girl can save the world.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"
    "Annoying"
    Overall

    Jim Butcher is one of my favorite authors for the Alera saga but this start of Dresden files is simply lacking. Add the narrator's annoying heavy sighs, grunts, and swallows makes this audiobook very annoying. Sorry, Jim...I wont be a fan of Dresden.

    An annoying narrator that intermittently makes a swallowing sound that's very distracting. I have to endure the whole audiobook listening to this sound. Better off reading.

    Sharon Shinn returns with a new novel set in the Twelve Houses world, where a troubled Warrior Rider named Wen faces her greatest challenge in the last place she ever expected: behind the walls of a great family estate known as Fortune, where Wen has been hired to guard the young heiress. Once there, she will find that fate has other plans for her.

    "Annoying Narrator"
    Overall

    This series is great. As an epic fantasy fan I greatly enjoyed the Twelve Houses. However, I am rating this particular audiobook. You can hear the narrator's subtle breathing at the end of every sentence like she's short of breath. It's very annoying. And I'm only using the standard Ipod earphones. But there's no choice but to endure the narration. Great series.

    Sprung from a timeless dream, Shadowbridge is a world of linked spans arching high above glittering seas. It is a world of parading ghosts, inscrutable gods, and dangerous magic. Most of all, it is a world of stories.

    No one knows those stories better than Leodora, a young shadow-puppeteer who travels Shadowbridge collecting the intertwining tales and myths of each place she passes through, then retells them in performances whose genius has begun to attract fame . . . and less welcome attention.

    Jake says: "A truely great story."
    "Confusing Story"

    The narrator is good but the story is so confusing. It's a story within a story that gets jumbled.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Lulu says: "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    6 hours into listening this book and I gave up. 6 hrs of listening to mundane storytelling is enough. Thats one credit to waste.
