    Story

    Slow to build, as a good love story should be. The story skirts the boundaries of the believable, but that's alright. Who reads romance for realism? It's less focused on physical intimacy than many other audible titles of this genre, and much more focused on the emotional quality of a building love story, which I appreciated. All in all a gentle and articulate romance which is worth the download. Would purchase more titles by this author if they were available, and would reccommend.

    This book will expand your understanding of the universe. Wilcock has blown the lid off a segment of science that we are only beginning to understand. Highly recommended.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    I purchase a lot of comedy titles on Audible... after many years as a member, this one is on the top of the short list. I have listened to it repeatedly, I enjoy it very much. Tina reads her book to you and you get to enjoy her impressions of randoms (Mr.... Mkrrrrshkvgggghrrrshh) that will make you spit your triple shot nonfat vanilla soy latte no foam all over the dashboard of your hybrid subcompact sedan. If you are remotely intelligent, enjoy quirky humor, and touching disclosures of awkwardness... you're alone on a Friday night just like me. Burrr URRRRR... Also, you'll DIG THIS $--T.

    In addition to being awesomely funny, touching, and authentic, if you're a writer of any kind, I believe you'll find this work inspiring. After listening to Tina perform her book, many of my friends said "wow, that's just the kind of stuff you write." Tina, are you listening? Get me a book deal, you GermaGreek Hillary apologist!

    Buy this. That is all.

    Quentin and his friends are now the kings and queens of Fillory, but the days and nights of royal luxury are starting to pall. After a morning hunt takes a sinister turn, Quentin and his old friend Julia charter a magical sailing ship and set out on an errand to the wild outer reaches of their kingdom. Their pleasure cruise becomes an adventure when the two are unceremoniously dumped back into the last place Quentin ever wants to see: his parent's house in Chesterton, Massachusetts.

    Story

    I deeply loved Les' first book in this series. It was touching, fascinating, and thrilling all at once. The performance was superb as well. This title is nearly as well constructed, and if it's at all inferior to the first book, it's only because the surprise of the incredibly interesting world The Magicians set-up is already established here and we can't be as thrilled by it. But Grossman creates an alternate world which, while less novel, is doubly more divergent and interesting. It is well crafted, but I found the climax and denouement slightly less satisfying than that of the first book- however, a sequel is clearly planned and it will be the first on my to-download list.

    If you liked the first book, you'll like this as well. Think of The Secret History with a little less darkness and a little more magic and exposition. It's intelligent and entertaining, a difficult combination to execute well. Definitely recommended.

    2057. Humanity has raised exploiting the solar system to an art form. Bella Lind and the crew of her nuclear-powered ship, the Rockhopper, push ice. They mine comets. And they're good at it. The Rockhopper is nearing the end of its current mission cycle, and everyone is desperate for some much-needed R & R, when startling news arrives from Saturn: Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, has inexplicably left its natural orbit and is now heading out of the solar system at high speed.

    Story

    A supremely well-crafted story which is slow to build but pulls you in quickly. I found the performance to be superb; each character is voiced well and sounds distinct. The story often meanders when you want the pace to be quicker, which is a good sign that you're invested in the title. If you are a fan of Robert Forward or other intelligent sci-fi, this is a must buy. It is a bit abstract and intellectual for a fan of less intricate storytelling, but immensely satisfying and stimulating.

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    Jeff says: "Wonderful book, but hardly abridged"
    "Excellent travel narrative for the outdoor set."

    I love travel narratives and am an avid camper/backpacker; this title from Bill Bryson was right up my alley. It is funny at times, poignant at others, always ringing true- buy it. You won't regret it.

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Reney says: "Be careful with logical leaps"

    Terrific, relevant, fascinating audiobook that is essential for anyone who is... alive, basically. Very incisive studies of human perceptual abilities and shortcomings which will help you understand yourself and others better, and entertaining besides.

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    Brian says: "State of Fear - A Refreshing Point of View"
    "A Major Disappointment from a Serious Chricton Fan"
    Overall

    First things first- ignore reviews that say this book is a platform for Greenpeace and treehuggers. Whoever says that did not read/listen to this book because in fact, it discredits quite a few principles held by environmentalists for decades. Even though I consider myself environmentally aware, that particular aspect of the book was actually interesting and I learned a bit from it. The rest is disappointing. I bought this title to listen to on a roadtrip expecting the same high level of storytelling I've always enjoyed from Michael Crichton, but it was too corny to be enjoyable. It was confusing at first and then a bit weird, with cheesy romantic subplots whose descriptions made me laugh out loud. Try another of his books, you won't be disappointed- but skip this one.

    The Supreme Court endorses terrorists' rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You're right: it's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power.

    James says: "A concise account of an originalist viewpoint"
    "Look elsewhere..."
    Overall

    ... for a good read. This book endorses a political philosophy that has been put forth by some of the most corrupt leaders of our time, for example that the judiciary should be accountable to the legislature. Besides being patently short-sighted and foolish, this idea runs completely counter to the system of checks and balances developed by the founders and integral to the U.S. Constitution. Another idea presented here is the "activist judge" who is apparently any judge who makes decision based on the law rather than the will of an out of control political majority. This is the kind of drivel you will find here. I'd give it a -1 out of 5, but I don't think the rating system goes that far down.

    Out of nowhere, like a fresh breeze in a marketplace crowded with advice on what to believe, comes Byron Katie and what she calls "The Work". In the midst of a normal life, Katie became increasingly depressed. Then one morning, she woke up in a state of absolute joy, filled with the realization of how her own suffering had ended. The freedom of that realization has never left her, and now, in Loving What Is, you can discover the same freedom through The Work.

    Overall

    BUY THIS TITLE. It rocks, it will so change your life if you let it. I am not a nutty new age weirdo, but I do like getting different perspectives on ways to truth. I have books by Deepak Chopra (good), Wayne Dyer (great), Stuart Wilde (good), and of course Byron Katie (awesome.) The beauty of this book is many fold. First, it is non-religious, non-preachy, no-nonsense, and simple. I find that assimilating information like this is easier with an audiobook than a hardcopy and this is especially true of "Loving What Is" because you actually get to hear Katie doing The Work with people on the program (that's the best part, in my opinion.) I have listened to it over and over and over, and each time I get something different out of it to complete the picture. There are moments you want to just laugh and laugh because you see so much of what is said in your own life and your own beliefs.
    This is probably one of the best investments of my life, not to mention my book collection. I highly reccomend it. There are a lot of wackos out there, and some teachers that actually have something but don't know how to communicate it well. Katie has a simple message and she knows how to get it across. Katie is the real thing. I had the privelege of having dinner with her once and she is extremely present, she lives this Work every day and every moment. You will thank yourself for buying this title. I know I do all the time and have encouraged my friends and coworkers to check it out too.
