    At 23, Jane Goodall made her first voyage to Africa and began her determined steps to achieve her goal of studying animals by living among them. In My Life with the Chimpanzees, she shares the remarkable journey which took her from her childhood in London to the realization of her dream in the wilds of Gombe, Tanzania.

    Janice says: "My 10-year old loved it!"

    Overall

    This audio is one the whole family can listen to and enjoy. My family and I learned many things about her life and about chimpanzees. She does a good job reading her own story and is inspiring to listen to.

    When ABC News' Good Morning America asked its viewers to write essays describing true-life experiences, the network never imagined receiving more than 20,000 pages of inspiring stories. After a panel of best-selling authors and editors chose three finalists, America was given the opportunity to vote on which aspiring author's story would be published. This audiobook is the result of the most ambitious search ever conducted to publish an extraordinary life story.

    Tony says: "Outstanding"
    "Incredibly Good"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading about this brave, independent young woman. It gave me a better view of how life was in Kabul and what life is like for children living amongst war. One cannot help but like and admire Farah. I always ask myself whether a book would be better to read or listen to. The advantage of listening to this book is hearing the narrator's pronounciation of afghan words.

    Ever wonder who was the first kid to keep a wallet on a big chunky chain, or wear way-too-big pants on purpose? What about the mythical first guy who wore his baseball cap backwards? These are the Innovators, the people on the very cusp of cool. Seventeen-year-old Hunter Braque's job is finding them for the retail market.

    Our family listens to audiobooks while on road trips. It is challenging to find books the whole family can listen to. (there are no "ratings" on book/audiobooks - something I would like to see) Anyways, we all loved this book: 12yo,17yo,#2 48yos. Scott Brick is excellent as a reader with just the right amount of sarcism. The book is very funny and the plot entertaining. It was fun figuring out the companies that were being referred to and the facts presented were interesting.

When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

    Overall

    This audiobook was a very pleasant listen. I did not want to put it down. The characters were likeable and the narration easy to follow. The twists of the plot were not always predictable. If you like corporate suspense, you will like this book.

    At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, 14,000 people were inside the twin towers; reading e-mails, making trades, eating croissants at Windows on the World. Over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages, one witnessed only by the people who lived it, until now.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "A story about people and steel."
    "Engaging!"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and plan on listening to it again. I do not know anyone that worked in the World Trade Center so it was not as emotional for me to listen to as it would be for others closer to the events. This book brought the events closer to me and made them more real. I also found the educational aspects of the book enlightening; such as, how high rise fires are fought, the architecture of the buildings, lack of communication between departments, etc. Definitely worth your time.

    When Annette gets Lucien into trouble at school, he decides to get back at her by threatening the most precious thing in the world to her: her little brother Dani. But tragedy strikes. Annette knows she can never forgive Lucien for what he did to Dani, and she is going to make sure that no one else does either. She is so filled with rage that she sets out to alienate and humiliate Lucien at every turn. But then some surprising things began to happen to both of them.

    I am periodically on the lookout for an audiobook that can be enjoyed by the whole family and is appropriate for the whole family. My two daughters and I listened to this book while on a road trip and we all enjoyed it very much. It was interesting to hear about life in Switzerland in the 1930s. The characters were interesting and the book imparted good values.
