    I like Trump, he is a brilliant promoter , even though he claims he is only a builder..The truth is this book contains only 1 hour of how to to be a billionaire , the rest is self promotion. I enjoy listening to him, he is entertaining, that is why his show the Apprentice is so successfull.So if you get a kick out of listening to how The Donald makes phone calls and drops names this is for you.
    If not forget it.

  • Solomon's Song: The Australian Trilogy, Book 3

    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Solomon's Song to be better than the print version?

    yes I love listening to audio books , Humphrey Bower is a wonderful narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Solomon's Song?

    The trilogy was so captivating I listened to the 3 back to back ...I found the description of the war a bit too much to handle , perhaps its because I was uneducated about the first world war.a little let down at the end but on a whole I really enjoyed them .

    Fifty-nine days. That's how long Rennell Price has to live after spending 15 years on death row for the horrifying sexual assault and murder of a girl whose body was found floating in San Francisco Bay. But attorney Terri Paget has dedicated her life to fighting for people like Rennell Price. This time, Terri has a client she believes may actually be innocent, which means that an unpunished killer may still be free.

    Brenda says: "CONVICTION"
    "Boring & Dissapointing"
    Overall

    If you are a lawyer perhaps you would enjoy the constant droning on in legalese, for the rest of us this book is tedious. I listened in pain waiting for something interesting to happen it never did. Perhaps the writer is trying to expose how unfair & politically polluted our court system.Who knows? When I purchase a book I want to be entertained . This is not the book.

    This book may have kept me awake if the narrator had some life,
    I found the reading very clumsy & slow . The story was interesting except for the writers use of the word (And) very redundant!
