    From the author of the number-one national best seller Three Cups of Tea, the continuing story of this determined humanitarian and the schools he has established. In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson recounts his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders.

    Cathleen says: "Better than Three Cups of Tea"
    "Love the Story, and it's True!"
    Overall

    I love this book! I read Three Cups of Tea and listened to this book, the sequel, at work. It's inspirational, exciting, and the woman reading has a wonderful voice and an interesting accent.

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    D. Ramirez says: "I normally wouldn't, but..."
    "Good Recording, Gigantic Book"
    Overall

    All of Robert Jordan's books are huge. Without the audiobooks, I never would've gotten through the series. They're reminiscent of Lord of the Rings but with way more words. The story's pretty good, just really, really long-- 12 books all from 700-1000 pages each! Literally could not have gotten through these stories without the audiobooks. The recording's good, too. The two readers do a good job.

    The kinetically gifted, trained in mind/machine gestalt, are the most valued citizens of the Nine Star League. Using mental powers alone, these few Prime Talents transport ships, cargo, and people between Earth's Moon, Mars' Demos and Jupiter's Callisto.

    James P. Dyer says: "Not a bad start"
    "A Great Book and a Passing Audio Recording"
    Overall

    I love Anne MacAffrey's books, and I loved this one when I read it. But the audio recording, perhaps because it was a tape first, is warped and awkward most of the time. The enhanced download is passable. By the end, I had almost gotten used to it.
