    Overall

    The whole series was fascinating. I listened practically non-stop to all 5 books and found myself in the land of Blue Isle along with the characters. It was an amazing experience, one that I will never forget.
    The narrator, David DeSantos did multiple voices great.

    This mesmerizing first novel tells the epic journey of Lin, an escaped convict who flees maximum security prison in Australia to disappear into the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The keys to unlock the mysteries that bind Lin are held by two people: his mentor Khader Khan, mafia godfather and criminal-philosopher; and the beautiful, elusive Karla, whose passions are driven by dangerous secrets.

    "Prequel / Sequel ?"
    Overall

    I bought this book because it was on sale for a really good price and it was 43 hours long. I had no idea if I would like it or not and I wound up loving it. I am going to re-listen to it and take notes of all the beautiful quotes on life.

    I bought the hard cover version of it to read and, I also bought the soft cover version so I could mark it up and take notes. At amazon.com under this title it says: " Stay tuned for the prequel and the sequel."

    Can I ask when will these come out and will they be on audio?

    Defying their Black King in order to rally an attack on the peaceful Blue Isle, warrior-prince Rugar and his fearless daughter, Jewel, do not suspect that the islanders, under young prince Nicholas, have prepared to defend themselves.

    Lori Cheney says: "Bizarre but intriguing"
    "Thank you audible"
    Overall

    I have never been interested in fantasy books, and have never read any. Then when audible offered this book for free for a week, I figured I would try it. At the beginning of the book, the narration was so good that it gave me the patience to sit and listen. Then as the story started to unfold I found it so interesting that I had a hard time turning it off. At times I was sitting at the edge of my seat. The writing was so good, that I was able to visualize everything. Now I will give the second book of this series a try. I love finding new and interesting books to listen to. Thank you audible.

  • Here's the Deal: Don't Touch Me

    A frank, funny, no-holds-barred memoir that reveals the Deal or No Deal host’s ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD–and how it has shaped his life and career.

    Howie Mandel is one of the most recognizable names in entertainment–respected by his peers and beloved by audiences as the host of the enormously popular prime-time game show Deal or No Deal. With a career that spans three decades and many different show-business platforms–he’s a renowned stand-up comedian who continues to perform more than 150 sold-out shows a year, he created the award-winning TV show Bobby’s World, he’s starred in feature films and the hit TV series St. Elsewhere, and he’s also hosted his own daytime talk show–he’s one of the most versatile performers anywhere. But there are aspects of his personal and professional life he’s never talked about publicly–until now.

    Eleven years ago, Mandel first told the world about his “germophobia.” He’s recently started discussing his adult ADHD as well. Now, for the first time, he reveals the details of his struggle with these challenging disorders. He catalogs his numerous fears and neuroses and shares entertaining stories about how he has tried to integrate them into his act. “If I’m making myself laugh,” he writes, “then I’m distracted from all the other things going on in my head that are, at times, torturous.” And he speaks frankly and honestly about the ways his condition has affected his personal life–as a son, husband, and father of three.

    Fans who’ve been dying to know “the deal” behind Mandel’s remarkable rise through the show-business ranks will be rewarded with many never-before-told anecdotes, each one generously leavened with Mandel’s trademark humor. There are tales from every phase of his colorful career–from his early days ...

    Kathy says: "A surprisingly good audible book!"
    "Interesting and Funny"
    Overall

    Though it is a serious subject, Howie Mandel had me LMAO at times. I am looking forward to another audio book by him.

  • The Origins of Totalitarianism

    This classic, definitive account of totalitarianism traces the emergence of modern racism as an "ideological weapon for imperialism", beginning with the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe in the 19th century and continuing through the New Imperialism period from 1884 to World War I.

    Roger says: "Vast and intricate analysis of horror"
    "Poor narration"
    Overall

    This seems like a very interesting book, but I could not follow it because of the narration. Her accent is hard for me to understand, and she speaks fast and flat. There are a few other books I would like to purchase that are read by this narrator, but I won't due to the fact that I cannot follow her narration.
