    The three Geste brothers, orphaned early in life, are raised by an aunt. Their raucous youths are filled with the literature of adventure and ritualized horseplay centered around these myths and legends. So when the family's prized Blue Water sapphire turns up missing, each of the young men confesses to being the thief in order to protect the others and one by one they head off to join the French Foreign Legion.

    great story, the book was read very well. It flowed like a great read should, and was over before i knew it. well worth the credit, or the money.

  • World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

    Story
    (3581)

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Steve says: "Good but Too Short!"
    "Only 4 out of 5 because it's abridged."
    Overall

    I did not read any reviews on this book before I purchased it. I needed a book quick(traffic jam a hour and a half long) and this was a book I had looked at before so it was in my mind when i went looking for a book to listen to. It turned out to be a great choice. It is well written, with an easy flow of the story that I look for in a book. the narrators a very good, I did not know who they were until I started to recognize voices and looked them up. I have many books in audible, and this one is going on my list of titles i will recommend to others. My 1 comlaint is it's abridged, I never have bought an abridged version before, and i wish this one wasn't so. It does not need to be shortened , it needs to be longer. I'm happy with what I have, but I wish it was the unabridged version. Thats all the reason for my giving it a 4 out of 5.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Peter says: "Brilliant, insightful, intriguing."
    "very informative, great story"
    Overall

    I'm a history buff myself, and this book did open my eye's somewhat. It is worth listening to, and it is well read. I can say I have learned a lot from this book and will read it again in the future, as it shows how much of the way we are, is a result of Genghis. The west would not be the great place is is today if not for HIM.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    Overall

    If you like christopher Moore, you will like this one. I have read all of his work so far, and this one made my laugh more then most. Well worth the money. The narrator did a great job as well, no complaints there.
