  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Overall

    I picked this book purely based on other peoples reviews, its really not the kind of thing that I am into but it was FANTASTIC! The narration is perfect, the story lines were a pleasure to follow. I was addicted to the book from the introduction onward, truly amazing.

  • The Flight of the Century: Charles Lindbergh and the Rise of American Aviation: Oxford University Press: Pivotal Moments in US History

    In late May 1927 an inexperienced and unassuming 25-year-old Air Mail pilot from rural Minnesota stunned the world by making the first non-stop transatlantic flight. A spectacular feat of individual daring and collective technological accomplishment, Charles Lindbergh's flight from New York to Paris ushered in America's age of commercial aviation.

    What made the experience of listening to The Flight of the Century: Charles Lindbergh and the Rise of American Aviation the most enjoyable?

    Its a good story


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bob McGraw???s performances?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The narrator has the worst pronunciation I have ever encountered. Its unbelievable. Closer to the literal pronunciation computer voice synthesizers than to actual English.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be re-recored. An otherwise good book is ruined by poor narration.

  • Flying Drunk

    Story
    (3)

    Since he was a young boy, Joe Balzer dreamed of flying. He pursued his goal with passion and earned his pilot licenses, piling up hours of flight time with a wide variety of planes and jets with one overarching goal: to one day fly for a major airline. But Joe had a problem. He was an alcoholic and refused to admit to himself that he had a problem. His alcoholism caught up with him in March 1990, when Joe was arrested with two other pilots for flying a commercial airliner while under the influence of alcohol.

    William says: "Surprisingly provocative..."
    "Warning: Christian Propaganda"
    Overall

    Turns out its Christian propaganda book. Fine if you are into that thing, but no good if you wanted to actually understand what happened.

    Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the U.S. president that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board.

    Bob Wagner says: "Exciting!"
    "Good Story - Sound Effects Ruin Listening"
    Overall

    This is actually a pretty good story, not nearly as random and unbelievable as most of Ludlem's stuff. The listen experience is very nearly ruined by the ridiculous sound effects added to the recording (gunshots, helicopter rotors, explosions, etc.) These effects make this is a hard book to listen to

    In a single cataclysmic moment, First Sergeant Samuel Adams "Goose" Gander finds himself center stage in the opening act of the Apocalypse. Goose and the men of the 75th Army Rangers fight to survive a massive attack on the Turkish-Syrian border. Battling his own failing faith, Goose prays for the lives of his men and the innocents who are caught in the rain of bullets and missiles.

    Jim says: "Adding Guts to the Glory"
    "Evangelical Agenda Disguised as Fiction"
    Overall

    This was a complete waste of several hours of my life, read between the lines; this book is Christian evangelical babble masquerading as a thriller. That would be okay if it were even a half decent attempt but it’s terrible, the plot is more of a social agenda impugning “godless” culture and extolling the virtues of blind faith. If it were possible to give a book zero stars this would be it.
