    West Virginia, 1966. For thirteen months the town of Point Pleasant is gripped by a real-life nightmare that culminates in a tragedy that makes headlines around the world. Strange occurrences and sightings, including a bizarre winged apparition that becomes known as the Mothman, trouble this ordinary American community. And journalist John Keel, arriving to investigate the freakish events, soon finds himself an integral part of an eerie and unfathomable mystery.

    Marc says: "Smart, compelling, disturbing"
    "very insightful and well read"
    Overall

    I'm a zoologist, and I ejoyed this book thoroghly. It was insightful and knowledgable. Some people complain that the title was "decieving", due to lack of information on the Mothman. Keel only spends a chapter talking about this winged creature, but what was there was very interesting. Being in the field of zoology, I come across cryptids like the Mothman all the time. the most popular being obviously, bigfoot and nessie. If these subjects interest you then you should find this to be a very interesting listen.

    They mustn't harm a human being, they must obey human orders, and they must protect their own existence...but only so long as that doesn't violate rules one and two. With these Three Laws of Robotics, humanity embarked on a bold new era of evolution that would open up enormous possibilities, and unforeseen risks.

    Herb says: "Forget the violence - Read this one for the humor"
    "Beautiful!"
    Overall

    If your into technology and science, you will love this book. It is amazingly written and well researched. I think of Isaac Asimov as one of the greatest minds in history. He has such a thorough understanding of robotics and psychology, and that is what makes this book such a great read. This book has almost nothing to do with the movie, just so everyone knows. The only things taken from the book to the movie, was one or two of the characters and the robots.

  • The Twelfth Planet: Book 1 of the Earth Chronicles

    Do you reject both evolution and creationism? The product of 30 years of intensive research, The Twelfth Planet argues persuasively that humanity sprang from extraterrestrial forebears.

    Scott says: "abridged version"
    "Great read for an open and inquiring mind."
    Overall

    If you you have a thirst for knowledge and an open mind, you will most likely find this book very intriguing and thought provoking. It presents a theory that only a very open minded person could accept. But be prepared, because when you tell people about this book they will probably laugh and tell you you're crazy.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "A great, feel good story."
    Overall

    This book is definetly one my favourite audible purchases. Even though I usually read science fiction, suspense and horror, I absolutely loved this book. If your tired of all the serious and depressing books, this is the one to listen to. By the end, you will feel like a million bucks. I reccomend this book to anyone with a heart.

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Valerie says: "Just As Wonderful as I Remembered!"
    "Best book series ever."
    Overall

    I just finished listening to the third book in this series and I must say that so far this series is (in my opinion) rivaling The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I recommend these books to anyone who loves action mixed with fantasy. It is written in a way that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting to download the next book. I hope that everyone loves this series as much as I do. I cant wait for the last book to come out.
