    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

    Jennie says: "Unbelievably riveting!"

    Overall

    Everyone should know this journey. A little bit textual at times, as non-fiction often can be. However the story is so interesting you don't mind. Put this on your list of stories from the past that you need to know

  • The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist

    The Rite describes the reality of demonic possession. It also traces the history of exorcism and and treats related topics such as satanic cults and black masses. Since Fr. Thomas was a skeptic and the author is a fact-seeking journalist, this book is more compelling even than the previous best-seller on this topic, The Exorcist.

    VH says: "Excellent"
    "The Rite"
    Overall

    Text like in delivery, but informative with regard to the Catholic religion and it's stances on the subject both past and present. Not a read for pleasure, but rather a read for knowledge.

    Known throughout Tennessee as "Old Kate", the Bell Witch took up residence with John Bell's family in 1818. It was a cruel and noisy spirit, given to knocking and gnawing sounds before finding its own voices. With these voices and supernatural acts, the Bell Witch tormented the Bell family. The extraordinary tale recounts the only documented case in U.S. History when a spirit "actually caused a man's death".

    Donna says: "Quite Interesting"
    "The Bell Witch"
    Overall

    Well done, keeping you in the "other world" till the very end. Made me go on line to research the subject further. so "kudos" for that.

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"
    "Fall Of Giants"
    Overall

    Good, not a "Pillars" and not a "World", but an epic can't be written every time. I'm anxious to read the sequels to hopefully change my mind. This book felt "rushed" making me wonder if there was a deadline looming.

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    sadee poulsen says: "Koontz is back!"
    "What The Night Knows"
    Overall

    Certainly not his best, Koontz simply provides an entertaining and spooky break from any "heavy reading". A Girl Scout campfire could have produced the same.

    This magnificent novel by one of America's finest writers is the epic of one man's remarkable journey, set in 19th-century America against the background of a vanishing people and a rich way of life. At the age of 12, under the Wind Moon, Will is given a horse, a key, and a map, and sent alone into the Indian Nation to run a trading post as a bound boy. It is during this time that he grows into a man, learning, as he does, of the raw power it takes to create a life, to find a home.

    P. Bergh says: "A fascinating, great epic tale"
    "Thirteen Moons"
    Overall

    Sophisticated and often poetic prose season this well developed story line. The narration takes a short time to get use to, but once you do, it complements the book. The author has obviously well researched and delivered this time in American history with a sensitive pen. Worth reading
