    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    this has to be the single worst audio performance in my 12+ years as an Audible customer. the narrator tries to fake a southern accent with insultingly laughable results. don't waste your time with this one.

    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 50 years, you're aware of the many hypotheses that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was not done by one man. Whether you've listened to one or a dozen of the audiobooks on this topic, there's no way to fully grasp the depth of this conspiracy. For the first time ever, New York Times best-selling authors Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have teamed up with some of the most respected and influential assassination researchers to put together the ultimate compendium that covers every angle - from the plot to the murder - of JFK.

    Story

    this is a very weak effort at piling on for the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. far too often will you hear the phrase: "a possible connection between XYZ and the military industrial complex". again, not worth the effort it took for me to download this book, would have rated it a zero, but i thought someone would think i just skipped that step.

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

    very weak offering. this book just stopped. there was no real ending, if it was setting up for the next installment, it did a lame job of that too. stay away...

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This is the worst excuse for a book I've ever downloaded from Audible. I have no idea how it got such high ratings. VERY slow to get started; doesn't get remotely interesting till midway in part two of three. Characters are so calculating and flawed it makes you want to scream.

    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.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "best book?"
    Overall

    this could be the best Audible offering i've ever listened to. an incredibly well written story about a great American.

    Charlie Wilson's War is the untold story behind the last battle of the Cold War and how it fueled the rise of militant Islam. George Crile tells how Charlie Wilson, a maverick congressman from east Texas, conspired with a rogue CIA operative to launch the biggest, meanest, and most successful covert operation in the agency's history.

    Chuck says: "Best Non-Fiction Book - Extremely Compelling!!!"
    "most impressive"
    Overall

    very interesting story. reads like something from Clancy, only better. almost hard to believe that this sort of thing really happens in modern time. highly recommended.

    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    Laura says: "Not Unabridged"
    "run away, run away fast"
    Overall

    This book never got started. It's painfully slow when it's moving and menacingly slow the rest of the time. It brought up painful memories of "Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates"; another one where the cd's got tossed in the can before anyone could borrow the book. Save your credit this month. If someone mentions this title to you, run away, run away fast.
