  • Emily Gets Her Gun: But Obama Wants to Take Yours

    Story
    (36)

    Emily Miller tells her personal story of how being a single, female victim of a home invasion drove her to try to obtain a legally registered gun in Washington, D.C. The narrative - sometimes shocking, other times hilarious in its absurdity - gives the listener a real-life understanding of how gun-control laws only make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get guns, while violent crime continues to rise.

    gene says: "Fantastic - a MUST READ!"
    "Wealth of Knowledge."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book not just to a friend but to everyone. The reason is that it has a lot of knowledge about facts and the steps of getting a handgun in Washington DC. It also shows how the laws does not make sense for the law abiding citizens.

    Story

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Story
    (40)

    Gerrold, a science fiction writer from California, adopts a son who has a slight behavioral problem. He believes himself to be a Martian. Gerrold begins the long, involving work of trying to earn the acceptance of Dennis, a hyperactive eight-year-old who desperately wants a father's love, but is so insecure he feels he must be an alien. Gerrold's semi-autobiographical memoir of the first two years with Dennis is a funny, endearing, heartbreaking, and beautifully written testament to fatherhood.

    Michael says: "Good yet far from great"
    "One Of The Best Audiobooks!!"

    What did you like best about this story?

    The love of the father to the adoptive boy.

    Try to have that kind of relationship between father and son.
