  • Robert Kennedy: His Life

    Story
    (36)

    Traditionally, Robert F. Kennedy has been viewed as either the "Good Bobby", who saw wrong and tried to right it, or the "Bad Bobby" of countless conspiracy theories. Evan Thomas' achievement is to realize RFK as a human being, to bring to life an extraordinarily complex man who was at once kind and cruel, devious and honest, fearful and brave. The portrait that emerges is unvarnished but sympathetic, packed with new details about Kennedy's early life and his behind-the-scenes machinations.

    Donald says: "Excellent"
    "Wonderful Book"
    Overall

    This book contains great information on RFK. It neither demonized nor cannonized him. It just told his story both good and bad. The narrator is the absolute worst. Suffer through it though, it's well worth it.

    Upon its first publication 20 years ago, And The Band Played On was quickly recognized as a masterpiece of investigatve reporting. An international best seller, a nominee for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and made into a critically acclaimed movie, Shilts' expose revealed why AIDS was allowed to spread unchecked during the early 80s while the most trusted institutions ignored or denied the threat.

    Overall

    This is an EXCELLENT book. The narrator did a beautiful job. The movie was great, but the book is so much better.

    For ten years, Senator Bob Graham served on the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he oversaw the conduct of the CIA and had access to some of the nation's most closely guarded secrets. In this explosive, controversial, and profoundly alarming insider's report, Senator Graham reveals faults in America's national security network severe enough to raise fundamental questions about the competence and honesty of public officials in the CIA, the FBI, and the White House.

    Greg says: "Open your eyes"
    "good material"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the content of this book. However, the narrator needs to learn what to do when he finishes a sentence. Drop the voice, don't raise it!

    The story of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some information about the audiobook, but in this case we think that would spoil the listening. We think it's important that you start to listen without knowing what it is about.

    Jessica says: "Much Better than the Movie"
    "Excellent!!"
    Overall

    If I could rate this 10 stars I would. Gripping story; a must read for older children and adults alike. Much, much better than the movie. I highly recommend this book.

    Over the course of a lifetime of service to his country, Colin Powell became a national hero, a beacon of wise leadership, and, according to polls, "the most trusted man in America". From his humble origins as the son of Jamaican immigrants, to the highest levels of government in four administrations, he helped guide the nation through some of its most heart-wrenching hours.

    Rami says: "Nice, informative, entertaining"
    "Very Interesting Book"
    Overall

    I loved this book. It wasn't too long or boring at all. Tons of great info and back stories. The narration was wonderful. I highly recommend this book.

    Eric Clapton is far more than a rock star. Like Dylan and McCartney, he is an icon and a living legend. He has sold tens of millions of records, played sell-out concerts all over the world, and been central to the significant musical developments of his era. His guitar playing has seen him hailed as "God". Now, for the first time, Eric tells the story of his personal and professional journeys in this pungent, witty, and painfully honest autobiography.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Very enjoyable"
    "Ok Book"
    Overall

    This book was nothing special. If you want to get some insight on addiction you'll get plenty here.

  • Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

    Story

    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Lawrence D. Clayton says: "On an equal footing with Helter Skelter"
    "Excellent!!"
    Overall

    This book was one of the best I've downloaded. The narration was the best. I highly recommend this book. It great contains great information.
