    In the words of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the United States is “an empire on the edge of chaos.” Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because we’ve turned our backs on the Constitution. Yes, our country is financially broke, but that’s just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has centralized power at the expense of individual rights.

    What did you love best about Broke?

    I really loved how in the beginning of the book Beck talks about the Romans and there government. How the policies of finance lead to fall of a great empire. Then to detail the fiscal policy, in short, of each president from the first to the last; a great relation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again, it was the beginning.


    Which character – as performed by Glenn Beck and Brian Sack – was your favorite?

    Glenn Beck. I love hearing him talk.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book definitely gave me a better insight to the polices of President and how debt really is crushing America.

    The second novel set in the Old Republic era and based on the massively multiplayer online game Star Wars: The Old Republic ramps up the action and brings listeners face-to-face for the first time with a Sith warrior to rival the most sinister of the Order’s Dark Lords: Darth Malgus, the mysterious, masked Sith of the wildly popular “Deceived” and “Hope” game trailers. Malgus brought down the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in a brutal assault that shocked the galaxy....

    I really loved the 1st so coming to the 2nd was a given. I really felt that Kemp did an awesome job writing this story. I hate to admit it, two very key moments towards the end actually made me a little teary eyed... funny to think about. Anyways, great book.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print because I do not have the patience for sitting down and reading a book. However, I listened to the entire audible book and I loved it. Very catching and interesting. I looked forward to each chance I had time to listen to this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lisbeth is my favorite character and in my life I have encountered a few women just like her. Usually they always are memorable.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first audible book and I have nothing to compare.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this book and I look forward to listening to the entire set.
