    It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the premiere episodes of The Adventures of Superman! Debuting on March 12, 1940, the exciting radio serial was an instant hit. Starring Clayton "Bud" Collyer in the dual roles of Superman and Clark Kent, this initial nine-episode sequence tells the story of the destruction of Krypton and the Man of Steel's arrival on Earth.

    I listened to these years ago and loved them then too. The sound effects are great and develops a strong picture in the mind while listening. What I like best is older heritage of the US in its halcyon days! Loved it.

    The audios are cleaned so there no static.

    The only downfall is that it's less than 2 hours. These episodes are free on the internet so I'm boggled as to why you don't get more.

The Akashic Records, also known as the Book of Life, are the storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived upon the earth, containing every word, deed, feeling, thought, and intent that ever occurred. Learn how you can tap into your records - your past lives, your present experiences, and your future - to create the life you desire now.

    This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer and his family in old agrarian China. The humble Wang Lung glories in the soil he works, nurturing the land as it nurtures him and his family. Nearby, the nobles of the House of Hwang consider themselves above the land and its workers; but they will soon meet their own downfall. The working people riot, breaking into the homes of the rich and forcing them to flee. When Wang Lung shows mercy to one noble and is rewarded, he begins to rise in the world, even as the House of Hwang falls.

    How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes uses illustration, humor, and accessible storytelling to explain complex topics of economic growth and monetary systems. In it, economic expert and bestselling author of Crash Proof, Peter Schiff teams up with his brother Andrew to apply their signature "take no prisoners" logic to expose the glaring fallacies that have become so ingrained in our country's economic conversation.

    This is a clssic by the Master himself, Peter Schiff!

    Highly recommended!

    Peter and Andrew Schiif outline the simple and easy to understand basics of economics.

    After listening, you will understand economics much better than college trained 'experts'!

    The story is easy to follow and Andrew Schiff does an excellent job narrating, with Peter's commentary on each chapter!

    I really enjoyed this audio book!

    Now under the leadership of the reluctant Lieutenant Kelvan Cleasby, the Sixth Platoon of Storm Knights has been ordered to accompany an archeological expedition from the Royal Cygnaran University deep into the Wyrmwall Mountains to investigate an ancient site of potentially great historical value. But what seems a simple enough assignment will rapidly turn into a test of the platoon's survival skills - an abandoned fort, the lone survivor of a horrifying attack, and a ferociously territorial tribe may be more than even the Malcontents can handle.

    Story

    Volume 1 in this series was week, as the main character Madigan goes week. It had started good, but then went downhill.

    This book, volume 2 is great and awesome through out until the end!

    The author builds a super super nemesis and then comes up with such a week completely unbelievable ending!

    I was so bummed. Monster Hunters and Grym Noir series stayed awsome right to the end. But not this book.

    I love Larry Correia's books. It's a real bummer to end in such a non believeable way.

    The book had my interest and attention throughout, the greater was awesome, but, argh! The ending stinks!

    Titan is the first full-length biography based on unrestricted access to Rockefeller’s exceptionally rich trove of papers. A landmark publication full of startling revelations, the book indelibly alters our image of this most enigmatic capitalist. Born the son of a flamboyant, bigamous snake-oil salesman and a pious, straitlaced mother, Rockefeller rose from rustic origins to become the world’s richest man by creating America’s most powerful and feared monopoly, Standard Oil. Branded "the Octopus" by legions of muckrakers, the trust refined and marketed nearly 90 percent of the oil produced in America.

    Story

    If you love business and investing, you will come to strongly admire Rickefeller! He showed that a person could start at zero and accumulate massive wealth. And, in the process, benefit humanity to astounding heights.

    He competed with those like himself and was the winner, kind of like Pele in soccer or Michael Jordan in basketball.

    I think he would have been great if competing in today's world.

    Without the encomberamce of super large government of today, he showed what heights in achievement one could obtain, and what industry could do to elevate humanity.

    The narrator was awesome and kept me captive throught! Great job!

    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.

    After the War of the Gods, the demons were cast out and fell to the world. Mankind was nearly eradicated by the seemingly unstoppable beasts until the gods sent the great hero, Ramrowan, to save them. He united the tribes, gave them magic, and drove the demons into the sea. Ever since, the land has belonged to man, and the oceans have remained an uncrossable hell, leaving the continent of Lok isolated.

    This book was a great listen! I've listen to most of the other Correia books and this one is another great one.

    The story is full of action and the characters are well developed.

    I had to put my daily podcasts on the backburner until I finished this audio as it held my attention so well.

    The narrarator did an outstanding job!

    Dolores Claiborne's elderly employer dies suddenly, apparently from falling down a flight of stairs. This tragedy sparks memories of the day Dolores' husband died...the day of the total eclipse. Suspected by police and townspeople alike, she delivers a story of a disintegrating marriage, and the breaking point reached by a docile woman.

    If you are a Stephen King fan, you'll love this. The story draws you in and there are so many good insights into marriage and the love a mother can have for a daughter.

    Dolores is so real and honest and likeable. we can all relate to her and her trials in life. She perseveres and never gives up and is honest with herself.

    It is told from the first person and you feel like you are right next to her listening intently to her every word.

    What I absolutely and truly enjoyed were the similes! This book used them so extensively and this is my MOST favorite writing style. I love seeing the picture in my mind of what the author is covering without adverbs and descriptions. This was what I enjoyed by far the most from this book. King is the MASTER of this style! I loved it!

    You can't go wrong with this book! it's Great!

    Thanks Stephen King!
