    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    "Great book!"
    Overall

    This is not my usual reading material being a 59 year old female, but I appreciated it immensely. The reader did an excellent job and the writing was riveting. I learned a lot about the Vietnam War that was probably quite authentic based on comments from friends back then. This is not a happy story with a wonderful ending but a realistic view of war in a jungle far away. I would recommend it to everyone to read!

  • Outlander

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    "Harlequin romance for sure"
    Overall

    I am giving up after the second section turned into harlequin romance novel porn with absolutely no redeeming aspects. The whole story is ridiculous anyway. I really don't care if she stays in lala land or finds her way back to her own time...sorry but this is one of the worse books.

    Born a slave on the island of Saint-Domingue, Zarit - known as Tt - is the daughter of an African mother she never knew and one of the white sailors who brought her into bondage. Though her childhood is one of brutality and fear, Tt finds solace in the traditional rhythms of African drums and in the voodoo loas she discovers through her fellow slaves.

    Madelaine says: "good story, ok narration"
    "Not sure I'll make it through"
    Overall

    Bad narration overcomplicated by the foreign words and the seeming importance of over using them. I have made it several hours into the book and am not sure if I will continue, it is so boring. So in short, boring story, bad narration and not completely in English. Save your money!

    Against the sumptuous backdrop of Charleston, South Carolina, South of Broad gathers a unique cast of sinners and saints. Leopold Bloom King, our narrator, is the son of an amiable, loving father who teaches science at the local high school. His mother, an ex-nun, is the high school principal and a well-known Joyce scholar. After Leo's older brother commits suicide at the age of 13, the family struggles with the shattering effects of his death, and Leo, lonely and isolated, searches for something to sustain him

    Pamela says: "Authors Need to Review Pronunciations"
    "Epic Novel"
    Overall

    I enjoyed every minute of this book. Yes, sometimes it detailed a lot, but you get in the southern drawl groove and it all fits. Great reader.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Great Series"
    Overall

    This is the second of three books about Lisbeth Salander. It will be hard to find another book or series as good as these were, now that I am done.
