    Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion on the Appalachian Trail resulted in the best seller A Walk in the Woods. Now, we follow him "Down Under" to Australia with this delectably funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance that combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. More from Bill Bryson.

    Overall

    Perfect for short drives (20 minutes) snippets. Bryson is humorous, and I found myself transported easily from here to Australia. Great book, great narration.

    In 1991, acting on a tip from a local fisherman, two scuba divers discovered a sunken German U-boat, complete with its crew of 60 men, not too far off the New Jersey coast. The divers, realizing the momentousness of their discovery, began probing the mystery. Over the next six years, they became expert and well-traveled researchers, taught themselves German, hunted for clues in Germany, and constructed theories corrective of the history books, all in an effort to identify this sunken U-boat and its crew.

    Douglas says: "GRIPPING!"
    "Best book in 2 years"
    Overall

    Member of Audible for 2 years. Best book so far (out of 30+). Story is exceptionally interesting and well-written. Naration is splendid. I suspect the only thing lacking would be photos typical for a book of this type. I plan on letting my 11 year old listen to this soon.

  • John Adams, Volume 1

    With the sweep and vitality of a great novel, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough presents the enthralling story of John Adams. This is history on a grand scale - an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas.

    Kevin says: "John Adams"
    "Best Audible book I've heard"
    Overall

    Audible member for 14 months. This is the best book of the more than a dozen I've heard. Can't wait to download Volume 2 next month
