  • The Audacity to Win

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By David Plouffe
    • Narrated By Erik Davies

    The story of the most important political campaign in modern times, by the man who went through it side by side with President Obama.

    Susan says: "Fascinating book; don't care for the narration"
    "Informative book"

    This book gives us (political wonks) great insight into the strategies of their campaign.
    It does at times get too technical but it doesn't take long before the the authors bring you back into their heads of winning this campaign.
    Really enjoyed listening.

  • Gray Mountain

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By John Grisham
    • Narrated By Catherine Taber
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.

    Jan says: "Sorry John... wanted to like it... love you anyway"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Get a different person narrating the story.

    What could John Grisham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I love Grisham and his work but this is too dry and the story line drags.
    Now I understand this isn't the most romantic story line being about the coal industry but to me it was not an interesting story and you than he put's that together with flat narrator = boring.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Catherine Taber’s performances?

    Not really..

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment which is not like all the other Grisham storys.

    Any additional comments?

    If I were you pick out a different book for your money.

  • The Family Corleone

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By Ed Falco
    • Narrated By Bobby Cannavale
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important than his family's future. While his youngest children, Michael, Fredo, and Connie, are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation, and his adopted son Tom Hagen is a college student, he worries most about Sonny, his eldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny - 17 years old, impatient, and reckless - wants something else: To follow in his father's footsteps and become a part of the real family business.

    steve says: "Outstanding: An Instant Classic!"
    "Good Read on the Early history of Sonny Corleone"
    What made the experience of listening to The Family Corleone the most enjoyable?

    Being somewhat familiar with the Godfather series this story gets to the early times for Sonny Corleone and his family..

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, not a problem wanting to know what came next in the life of Corleone family.

    What does Bobby Cannavale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Liked his tone and correct Italian pronouncment of the words. Wish there was more Italian words added in the story, that seems to bring you in the book even more.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Luca and his girlfriend his storyline in particular moved me.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King
    • Narrated By Craig Wasson

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Better than expected!"
    Where does 11-22-63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm not usually a Stephen King fan or time traveler reader but this book held my interest through out the entire listen. You could imagine everything leading up to 11-22-63 as being the real story.
    Great Book.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sadie was my favorite character. Her character was human and warm.

    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favorite?

    Mr Wasson brought out each character to life so it's hard to pick only one.

  • World Without End

    • UNABRIDGED (45 hrs and 40 mins)
    • By Ken Follett
    • Narrated By John Lee
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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"
    "Slow Start"

    It took me awhile to get into this book. Not as good as Ken follett's campanion book "The Pillars of the Earth". I found I had to repeat part of chapters to keep up with the characters and story line. Not worth the credits.

  • Middlesex

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Jeffrey Eugenides
    • Narrated By Kristoffer Tabori

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Quite the story!"

    From the begining this audible book takes your mind back in time to another culture and the journey of the consequence it produces.

  • The Politician: An Insider's Account of John Edwards's Pursuit of the Presidency and the Scandal that Brought Him Down

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Andrew Young
    • Narrated By Kevin Foley
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Like a nonfiction version of All the King's Men, The Politician offers a truly disturbing, even shocking, perspective on the risks taken and tactics employed by a man determined to rule the most powerful nation on earth.

    MICHELLE says: "A real eye opener!"
    "Interesting look"

    into John Edwards personal/political life. At time's this book doesn't keep your interest.
