    In books 1 and 2 of the Chiveis Trilogy, The Sword and The Gift, Teo and Ana find the Old and New Testaments, which had been lost for centuries. Their discoveries lead to new friendships and renewed faith within a small band of men and women working to spread the knowledge of the one true God. But now an ancient pact has united enemies of the Christian faith. Through the discovery of a powerful military technology, this dark alliance now threatens to consume the known world.

    What made the experience of listening to The Kingdom the most enjoyable?

    It is a fast pace series in through out, with the exception of a few slow areas. I enjoyed the whole series and would rather buy and listen to all of the books instead of waiting for another book to come out. There are times that things are repeated to much but overall I liked it.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the narration of Mr. Porter and will listen to him again. In fact listening right now to another book his is doing.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author had or is going to do more books.

    When the body of hotel owner Piet Jansen is discovered amid the ruins of an archaeological site by the Nile, it looks like a routine investigation for Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police. But the more he learns about Jansen, the more he is reminded of the brutal murder, some years earlier, of an Israeli woman at Karnak for which he always suspected the wrong man was convicted.

    The mission seems simple enough: Extract a pharmaceutical magnate from Russian soil. But nothing is as it appears to be. A desperate call thrusts Captain Tucker Wayne and his stalwart military dog, Kane, into a frantic race to rescue the brilliant-but-deluded Abram Bukolov from a cadre of skilled assassins. Hunted and betrayed at every turn, Tucker and Kane must discover the truth behind a horror out of the ancient past that can be weaponized to terrorize the modern world. As time rapidly runs out, the deep and intimate bond between dog and soldier will be tested to the extreme.

    Story

    I was disappointed in the narrator. He didn't seem to have the right kind of emotion for the story. I have read all of James Rollins books and listen to many of the on Audible and have learn that the narrator makes a big difference with the book. I prefer Mr. Fernandez who has done other Rollins books and makes them exciting and interesting. This book drags in some spots. I do like Tucker and Kane and just happen to listen to Bloodline right before I got this book where they are introduced with the Sigma team.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    I listened to "Green" first and am now on the last book of the series. I am enjoying the books so much I am having a hard time getting other things done. Ron Lamont's narration keeps things exciting and moving along. This is the first books I've read from Ted Dekker and have add other of his books to my Wish List.

    I would suggest you listen to the samples of the other books before purchasing them.

    A young orphaned boy was abandoned and raised in an Ethiopian monastery. He has never seen outside its walls - at least, not the way most people see. Now he must flee or die. But the world beyond is hardly ready for a boy like Caleb. When relief expert Jason Marker agrees to rescue Caleb from the monastery, he unwittingly opens humanity’s doors to an incredible journey filled with political intrigue and peril. Jason and Leiah - the French-Canadian nurse who escapes the monastery with him - quickly realize Caleb’s supernatural power to heal. But so do the boy’s enemies, who will stop at nothing to destroy him.

    Long before he starred on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series such as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and went on to distinguish himself in a variety of film and stage roles, Tony Danza was a walking contradiction: an indifferent student who dreamed of being a teacher. Inspiring a classroom of students was an aspiration he put aside for decades until one day it seemed that the most meaningful thing he could do was give his dream a shot. What followed was a year spent teaching 10th-grade English at Northeast High - Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3,600 students....

    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it.


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

    I laughed and cried for him and his students!

    After four decades in the music industry, Michael Bolton has become one the most successful musicians of our time. The Soul of it All is his backstage pass into his life lived thus far-into the venues, busses, limos, and hotel rooms of stardom, and finally into his home and heart. His story will go long and dive deep, not only into his self-proclaimed "vagabond vampire" life, but also into the belly of the beast that is the music industry, with its joys, follies, and torments.

    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.

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

    I had never listen to any of his other books but I unnderstand why Mr. King picked Mr. Wasson to narrate this book. His performance was outstanding. He matchedd the book perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't really care for the gory books of Steven King however I love his story and movie Shashank Redemption. I think he is a great story teller and should write more books that tells the story with out the gory stuff. I know he has a big following for that kind of writing but do like when he writes these kinds of books.

    It is Tokyo in 1939. On the Street of a Thousand Blossoms, two orphaned brothers are growing up with their loving grandparents. The older boy, Hiroshi, shows unusual skill at sumo wrestling, while Kenji is fascinated by the art of creating hard-carved masks for actors in the Noh theater. In an exquisitely moving story that spans almost 30 years, Gail Tsukiyama draws us irresistibly into the world of the brothers and the women who love them.

    What about Stephen Park’s performance did you like?

    I would leave it just the way it is.

    Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate Friday's level of contentment and joy every day of the week. Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows listeners how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.

    Would you listen to Every Day a Friday again? Why?

    I listen to it twice and would listen again. It was a great book to hear.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joel Osteen


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

    He is very easy to listen to, and its easier for me to get the message when spoken.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Keep smiling, and a reconfirmation of what the Lord says for us to do.
