    Best-selling author Orson Scott Card tells the story of a unique woman, one who is beautiful, tough, smart, and resourceful. Sarah takes on vivid reality as a woman desirable to kings, a devoted wife, and a faithful follower of the God of Abraham, chosen to experience an incomparable miracle.

    Tom says: "Entertaining, interesting and though provoking"
    "Wanting More..."
    Overall

    This is my first book by the author and it literally left me wanting more. I have heard and read the story of Sarah and Abraham many times, however rendition left me with a deeper understanding of what it must have been like for Sarah...even if it was fictious. Because I find myself barron as well I complete understood how it can consume someones every thought and how even though you have faith...you may still have doubt but in the very depht of your heart still hope for the impossible. And inspite of all that still be known by name by GOD himself. Orson's portrayal of Sarah made her human to me and still presented her with the virtue of a Godly woman.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    S. Droski says: "Great choice for Stephanie, Lorelai or Buffy fans!"
    "Loved It!!!!"
    Overall

    I was looking for a book to keep my interest after Twilight, Black Dragger Brotherhood, Sookie Stakehouse, etc....this book was it!!! I cannot wait for the next book.

    Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them. Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)

    Lisa says: "Not As Amusing As I Had Expected"

    Overall

    This book is terrible. The main character is weak minded and unbelievable. I had to make myself listen but many times I wanted to just delete it. Trust me...don't do it.

    If your are getting this book to laugh please don't bother...its actually sort of sad. It was really hard for me to continue listening to this title because I didn't see the point of it all and the ending was the saddest of all...a complete waste. Please save your credit!!!

    An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

    Luke A. Reynolds says: "Stupendous, but be warned."

    Overall

    I have over 100 titles in my library from several different genres, and I can tell you this is the worst book I have ever TRIED to listen to. I couldn't even finish the first 10 chapters. The narrators were terrible and the storyline all over the place. Trust me save you credit or wait until audible puts this title on sale.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Suze says: "Mesmerizing"
    "A book that makes you wanna talk to your kids"
    Overall

    I usually don't write a review for books, but this books made me wanna talk to my childern about the affects of bullying. Jodi P. characters draw you in and have you loving them one minute and despising them the next. It was worth every minute and kept my attention throughout. A book that has you thinking long after its done.

    With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

    David says: "Excellent read!"
    "All in the name of LOVE."
    Overall

    This book is great. The world really does not have men like Mitch. Dean Koontz kept me on the edge of my seat and sitting in my car long after i reached my destination.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Mitch says: "My Not-So-Guilty Pleasure"
    "Loved It.."
    Overall

    I just finished this book today and it left me missing the characters. Edward made me fear him and love him at the same time. Just enough teeth to make you aware of the possiblity of a threat but not enough to gross you out.

    Bravo.....Audible should get more books like this.
