    This is a sweeping narrative history of the events leading to 9/11, a groundbreaking look at the people and ideas, the terrorist plans, and the Western intelligence failures that culminated in the assault on America. Lawrence Wright's remarkable book is based on five years of research and hundreds of interviews that he conducted in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, England, France, Germany, Spain, and the United States.

    An amazing book and incredibly detailed yet fluid description of the multiple layers to 9/11 and the ultimate failure of the US CIA and FBI to potentially prevent that event. Not politically biased one way or the other. Narration is outstanding.

  • Moby Dick

    • UNABRIDGED (24 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Herman Melville

    "Call me Ishmael." Thus starts the greatest American novel. Melville said himself that he wanted to write "a mighty book about a mighty theme" and so he did. It is a story of one man's obsessive revenge-journey against the white whale, Moby-Dick, who injured him in an earlier meeting. Woven into the story of the last journey of The Pequod is a mesh of philosophy, rumination, religion, history, and a mass of information about whaling through the ages.

    Jessica says: "Excellent, EXCELLENT reading!"
    "Tour de force reading performance by narrator"

    Where does Moby Dick rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For those who love the story of Moby Dick and audiobooks in general this is a great book. William Hootkins' performance is deep, nuanced, and adds a tremendous amount to the cast of characters and the layers of this book. One of a kind production in my view.
