    Best-selling author and inspirational speaker Tommy Tenney teams with Mark Andrew Olsen to deliver a mesmerizing tale of historical fiction. Favorably compared to Anita Diamant's The Red Tent for its unexpected plot twists, Hadassah is the fictional account of the Bible's Esther, the Jewish peasant girl who became queen of Persia.

    Overall

    I was surprised by how much I liked this audiobook. I even listened to it a couple of times.

    The book was written with a "Christian" audience in mind, the authors are not well know, and reviews on Amazon.com were mixed so I didn't expect greatness. However, the book works as a historical novel.

    I liked the characters and the action kept moving. The narration was excellent; it was very easy to listen too and helped to keep the story moving along.

    I enjoyed listening to this story and I learned a bit about Queen Esther. I would definitely recommend this audiobook. If you liked this, try any Tracy Chevalier book, Orson Scott Card's Women of Genesis series (Sarah, Rebekhah), and "The Red Tent".

    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....

    "Excellent - But has graphic violence & abuse"
    Overall

    Outlander was captivating and I got addicted enough to get the two even longer sequels. However, be warned - some of the action is very violent and the abuse is very graphic.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Absolutely Perfect"
    Overall

    I've listened to this over and over. The Narrator's english accent really adds humor to Bill Bryson's funny and extremely knowledgeable book. You can listen to this in bits or straight through and always enjoy it.

    This is the perfect audio book.

  • The Feynman Lectures on Physics: Volume 1, Quantum Mechanics

    For more than 30 years, Richard P. Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity, and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight.

    "scratchy, but awesome"
    Overall

    The audio is scratchy, but it is so awesome actually getting to hear Feynman talking. Following the lectures is easier if you have his lecture books.
