    If you think you know George Washington, think again. This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It's a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And, of course, the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all.

    Inspirational, motivating, great


    Any additional comments?

    It made me want to be a better man, a better American, and a more active in my community.

    It's more than just a story or biography, it's a motivational book. Inspiring us to be the best we can be.

    This is the complete Wizard of Oz collection of 22 stories written by L. Frank Baum. This is the only complete collection that includes all the Oz stories. All 22 stories are fully complete. They include the dedication and the introduction of each story/book. In this collection, you will find stories not available in other collections. It even includes stories published after the death of L. Frank Baum.

    Would you try another book from L. Frank Baum and/or Eric Vincent?

    No


    What could L. Frank Baum have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Too much effort to make the characters react and say things to match the worst behavior of any character. This made it impossible to like any of the characters.
    The dialog felt forced and very mean spirited.


    Did Eric Vincent do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The narration was the only good part of the book


    Did The Complete Wizard of Oz Collection inspire you to do anything?

    No, I didn't even get through the half way point before giving up on the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not finish the book. It was too unenjoyableto continue. I could not reach the point that cared about the characters.

    To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....

    Where does Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This week this one is my favorite.

    I am listening to this one for a second time and it is just as good. Both the story and Fred Berman's narration. His voices and character development is incredible. I love this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them, each comes alive so well, with Fred's talented voice control.


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    Voices and ability to express emotion in his voice.

    Once a slave girl in the village of River Away, Kale is freed when she discovers a dragon's egg. She is given the unexpected opportunity to journey to the great walled city of Vendala to become a servant to Paladin. Yet this young girl has much to learn about the difference between slavery and service.

    What would have made DragonSpell better?

    To not be published


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The second book in the dragon keeper series, by Robin Hobb.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, not good


    Any additional comments?

    I spent most of the first few chapters wondering what was going on.
    I kept asking myself, how can there be so many words without saying anything.
    I also felt like I was missing something.
    It reminded me of listening to an Abridged book. What should have been big scenes, where only a couple sentences long. I actually rewound it a couple of times thinking I had dosed off and missed an important part, only to find I hadn't.

    Save your credit for something else. You will regret it.

    I actually gave up half way though the first part before giving up on the book completely. My daughter had the paper back of this book, and she agreed with all my comments.

    The narrator did nothing to help the book.
