Steven King endorsed this book in the afterwards of his new novel 11-22-63. I'd already listened to this but thought King's novel was a tad bit better.
Isaac Asimov crafted an excellent time travel novel that will keep you listening and begging for more with a surprise ending.
I'm such a "Johnny come lately" to "Les Miserables". Only recently did I watch the movie starring Liam Neeson. What an outstanding story Victor Hugo crafted about Justice and Mercy and Redemption as well as the struggle we all have against Social Injustice, the Cruelty of the World, and our own Sensuality and Prejudices. This story will truly inspire you to want to strive to become a better human being. Regardless of how bad a person may be, God can take the worst sinner and transform them into a beautiful saint. This is the story of that very thing: a sinner who became a saint.
As a Navy Veteran, I used to idolize the Navy Seals until I listened to this book by Retired Sgt Major Haney (founding member of the Army's Delta Force). These guys make make the Navy Seals look like a bunch of prima donnas. Navy Seals typically want glory. Delta force are the true unsung heros of our Armed Forces. They keep their identities secret. Even their families don't even know they're in Delta Force. Delta Force is by invitation only and the attrition rate is 95%. They receive tens of millions of dollars worth of training including secret agent training at Camp Perry (aka CIA's Farm) in Williamsburg, VA. They are truly Super Soldiers and Super Spies. They're the best of the best of the best! I'm just glad they're on our side to protect us from all the bad people in the world.
[saint] Stephen King is at the peak of his writing career. This book has it all: mystery, suspense, horror, action, romance, love, science fiction, history/alternative reality (viz Harry Turtledove). I've never been a fan of Stephen King because I don't like his typical Horror genre, but I've become a fan with this book. It's the best $45 I've ever spent on an audible book and provided me with hours of entertainment.
I learned about the psychological trait of Introversion about 18 years ago. The author, a lawyer by trade, did excellent research on this subject and presented it in an interesting format. Overall the book is outstanding and I've recommended it to quite a number of others.
The subject matter of God's providential care for us is laudable, but the author couldn't restrain his Protestant (sometimes anti-Catholic) views.
I enjoyed the first two books of the trilogy so much I had to listen to the third and I wasn't disappointed.
I enjoyed the first book of the trilogy so much I had to listen to the second. It was great too.
Although I'm more prudish, I'm somewhat familiar with European/Scandinavian culture, so I understood the different social mores they have there. The late author, Stieg Larsson really did a great job writing this story. It was quite entertaining and thrilling. The protagonist Bloomquist and Salander are quite flawed, but somehow redeem themselves. I liked it so much, I listened to the two squeals which I also enjoyed.
