    Just As I Am, picks up where Invisible Life left off, introducing Harris's appealing and authentic characters to a new set of joys, conflicts, and choices. In this vivid portrait of contemporary black life, with all its pressures and the complications of bisexuality, AIDS, and racism, Harris confirms a faith in the power of love - love of all kinds - to thrill and to heal.

    Pam S says: "enjoyable"
    "Wonderful Listen"
    Overall

    This was my first E. Lynn Harris book. What a delightful and touching story. I can't wait to read more from this author. Narration was superb.

    A Big Little Life tells the story of unexpectedly falling in love with a dog in middle age. It details Trixie's life with Dean and Gerda, the tremendous impact she had on them, and the things she taught them along the way. A lively and joyful read, it presents Trixie in all her complicated glory - her smarts, her lack of vanity, and her uncanny knack for living in the present.

    Brian says: "Loved this book"
    "Must Read for Dog Lovers"
    Overall

    If you love dogs, you will never forget this gem from Koontz.

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "Good Action"
    Overall

    Lots of action and language make this a good listen.

    Grady Adams lives a simple, solitary life deep in the Colorado mountains. Here the 35-year-old carpenter works out of a converted barn, crafting exquisite one-of-a-kind furniture. There's little about this strong yet gentle man to suggest the experiences that have alienated him from the contemporary world. But that is about to change.

    Michael says: "Lifeless"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    To think I almost didn't download this wonderful book. I pity those that didn't "get it" and felt the book's ending was lacking. I suspect these individuals have not experienced or sensed the magic animals have to offer us. Thank you Mr. Koontz for writing this book.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Laughable"
    Overall

    Dan Brown's attempt to have his readers embrace the bible is laughable. Even fiction has strains of realism. Don't waste your credits and more importantly don't waste your time on a book apparantly inspired by the religious zealots. Those that believe in Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck are sure to like this trash.

    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.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Heartbreaking Reminder"
    Overall

    I can see why this book has remained on the best seller list for more than a year. It is a gruesome and heartbreaking reminder of the stain the South and religion has made (and is continuing to make) on our country. I would give this book 6 stars if I could. A must read.

    From his grandmother, Alex Cross has heard the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggles for survival in the era of the Ku Klux Klan. Now, Alex passes the family tale along to his own children in a novel he's written - a novel called Trial.

    "A Sad Reminder"
    Overall

    A sad reminder of the racism that was and is still prevalent in America today, especially in the South. Makes you wonder just how stupid and ignorant people were and are. A must read so as not to forget how horrible injustice can be.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    My wife and I were a little unsure because of the few negative reviews that turned out to be baseless and without merit. We would rate this book 6 stars if we could. Great suspense and even greater characters. Be sure and read Girl with the Dragon Tatoo first. ENJOY!

    John Houck became a Marine to become a hero. But his life changed when he failed to notice an explosive device that ended up maiming the captain of his Force Recon Company, a respected Marine who nearly sacrificed himself to save John's life. Home from Iraq, John pays a visit to his former captain, only to discover the captain has been gruesomely murdered.

    N. Houghton says: "If I were Straight..."
    "Good Read"
    Overall

    I would give 5 stars if the first part of the book wasn't so hard to follow (which may be due to my own shortcomings). Many twists and turns make this book a very good read.
