    Over the course of this gripping narrative, Dave Cullen approaches his subjects with unrivaled care and insight. What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

    "Truth in Horror"
    Overall

    The directness of Dave Cullen's Columbine gives it the credibility it richly deserves. His deeply detailed research is presented with objectivity and as little emotion as possible. Of course you can't help but scream, cry and pray after you read it but for the first time I think I understand the story of Columbine but even moreover I think I understand some of the reason behind it. Even though I believe the story could have been told a fewer pages I highly recommend this fascinating read.

  • Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Overall

    I served in the service during the Viet Nam war. I lost my best friend at 19 years old and to this date no one has ever been able to describe the way it felt to be on the ground and in the bush. I knew there were good moments and bad but not until I listened to Karl Marlantes straight talking gut wrenching novel did I feel what my friends tried to explain to me over 40 years ago. I do not often shed tears when reading but this story caused many. Even so, when I finished the last page I knew that not only had I found an answer to my question but actually felt like I could live with it. Mr. Pinchot, nice rendition.

  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Stieg Larsson

    Story
    (7439)

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "A Work of Art"
    Overall

    The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson is a excellent close to the Lisbeth Salander trilogy. Even though she is physically limited in this installment her personality is pervasive throughout and the ultimate conclusion is satisfying indeed. Also, as long as I have been listening to audible books there has never been a narrator better than Simon Vance. His portrayal of these characters made the stories come alive. My most humble appreciation to both Stieg Larsson and Simon Vance.
