    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    As a lifelong conservative and a 21 year veteran of the military, I am finding it more and more difficult to believe how crooked our justice system can be. It pains me to say, but after much discussion, debate and reading stories like this, these do not seem to be isolated incidents. I understand that this is fiction, but a litle research will show that Texas Oklahoma and Alabama are full of these types of cases. Grisham seems to have learned a great deal from the research required to write the innocent man, and that research came in handy for this. Although a work of fiction, there is more truth than any conservative would care to admit!

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    What did you love best about The Help?

    Characters were all...... well.... Characters! It was awesome!


    What other book might you compare The Help to and why?

    I have 300+ audiobooks and I have never listened to anything like this. The closest might be a Confederacy of Dunces.


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

    N/A


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

    I am embarassed to say that I laughed out loud many times, and had to wear sunglasses to hide the tears!

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    I bought this book simply because I enjoyed Seabiscuit! I have literally 100's of audibooks and I would have to say that this is one of the best ever. Magnificent story, Great reader, never a dull moment. I will admit that I was a bit fearful when the Billy Graham portion began, but it ended up fabulous!

    I was proud to be an American, proud of my Italian heritage, proud to be alive!

    I would recommend this to anyone!

    He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson.

    Diana says: "Nelson does it again"
    "Wow! Just Wow!"
    Overall

    This was THE audiobook that I just did not want to end! I have listened to literally hundreds of books over the years, and this is up there with the all time best maybe THE best. I will admit that I have enjoyed just about everything DeMille has written (except some airline pilot story), and I think Scott Brick is the audiobook version of Sinatra. But this was a magnificent listen, I found myself avoiding my weeken golf game to listen, taking extra time riding to work and even taking long lunches just get get a few more minutes of it. I rate this up there with Demille's best!
