    George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words! This must-read is also a must-listen!

    Where does Animal Farm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I just loved the story! It was my first time reading/listening to it but I have heard great things about it for years. Animal Farm is ranked pretty high on my list now. I loved the narrator as well...really well acted. It is relevant to this day and age so I recommend listening to it.

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Story

    I loved this audiobook! I have to say, it does start out a bit slow but then it really picks up and you can't put it down! The narrator was PERFECT! He got all the accents correctly and every character had his/her own voice. This is one of those novels when you finish, you sit back and think about it and absorb it for a while before starting a new book.

    Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At 50 years old, she's a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children. When she begins to grow disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis changes her life - and her relationship with her family and the world - forever.

    Story

    I read all the reviews before starting this audiobook. And the reviewers weren't kidding about the poor narration. The author's voice was very flat with little emotion in very emotional parts. The story itself was really good and very sad. It's just sad to see relatively young people go through memory loss and dementia.

    What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

    Story

    I loved this story! We got the view point from three different people: Alice, her sister and Frannie. I think it was just creatively done and it was a multidimensional story with the three viewpoints and you not only got to know Alice through their eyes, you got to know the other two and what they've gone through in the present and in the past.

    One negative of the audiobook version which could be overlooked because the story was just beautiful. I didn't love the narrator unfortunately. In fact, in the beginning, I didn't really realize when Alice's viewpoint switched to her sister's viewpoint....the narrator had the same exact voice and tone for both of them.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

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

    YES! At the time, I rarely read nonfiction books but this book changed that. I have never ever been so enthralled by a book/audiobook before. I couldn't put it down. Laura Hillenbrand really takes you into Louie's life, you feel everything that Louie felt, especially during the hardest times in his life. This is a must read/listen to!


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

    cry mostly, you felt every pain

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    What did you love best about Killing Lincoln?

    Detailed history put in an interesting way. I get bored with non-fictions very easily. This book was not dry at all...it was well written and I could see the story come alive. I can see book coming out as a movie someday.


    Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No - I think his performance was adequate. He isn't an actor so that's understandable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - it took about a week. I listen to other books and read other books as well.
