    The record-breaking, chart-topping comedy phenomenon returns for a fifth season - all four episodes are here as a single download. Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office (upon which the current NBC hit series is based) and HBO's Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.

    "Strange Program"
    Overall

    The program is quite different in format from other talk shows. It is too strange for my taste. Too much emphasis on deviant behaviors (alternative life styles), in my opinion.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Not bad in an odd sort of way.

    Rock is something of a nerd - or so his best friend, Kelli, has always claimed, simply because he's a brainy guy. He's an up-and-coming businessman, determined to go far fast - and he's the total opposite of fun-loving Kelli. To his regret, Kelli has always seen him as a best friend, never as a potential lover.

    Overall

    I don't know how anyone other than a woman could enjoy this. Fictional romance in all its glory purely from the female perspective.

    The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: a large colony of humans; the Pequeninos; and the Hive Queen, who was brought there by Ender Wiggin. Once again, the enemy (the Starways Congress) has gathered a fleet and is threatening to destroy Lusitania. Ender's oldest friend, Jane, an evolved computer intelligence, is trying to save the three sentient species of Lusitania, but the Starways Congress is destroying the computer world she lives in.

    Jim says: "Hmm"
    "For What Purpose?"
    Overall

    This is the most boring of the series written on
    Ender Wiggens. I couldn't find the plot nor the purpose for this portion in the series. It does have some value, but not much. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they enjoy debates on theories.

    Xenocide is the third installment of the Ender series. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequeninos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last. Or so he thought. But Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus which kills all humans it infects, but which the pequeninos require in order to transform into adults.

    "OK Sci-Fi"
    Overall

    This is one of a series of books written about the future and a group of people who grew up in it. It has some really good portrayals of what aliens might be like, but seems unrealistic when it comes to the inter-communications among species. It does get boring in many places with so much detail, but the plot is OK and the author does think out his characters pretty well. I didn't enjoy the series of books as much as I had hoped from reading the Audible write-ups, but it is OK and once you get through some of the boring stuff, you might like it. Don't bother with reading Children of the Mind. It is the most boring in the series and doesn't bring anything to the next in the series. It is mostly a discussion on theories with no substance.

    In this original audiobook, Dr. John Gray and John Selby have designed a series of guided experiences that lead you to new heights of passion and sexual surrender.

    Nathan says: "More Elevator Music then hypnosis"
    "Yuppie Therapy"
    Overall

    It appears to be just another book by people trying to make money on the word Sex. There is some good "aroma therapy" type music, but I could get more relaxation from sniffing a tea rose than listening to this book.

    True inner peace awaits you! You can avoid spiritual quicksand and experience the incredible freedom found in total forgiveness. Is total forgiveness easy? Of course not...but this book will give you a game plan...and the encouragement to cast out areas of unforgiveness that have kept you from enjoying the best God has to offer you.

    James T. Jenkins says: "OK Read for Self Help"
    "OK Read for Self Help"
    Overall

    If you have a minor problem where you need help forgiving someone, this is a good listen for you. The book starts out pretty good and provides some excellent advice on what to do, though it is a little shaky on how to do it. It doesn't get any better after about the first hour. From thereon, it seems to repeat alot and just present examples of other peoples' plights. I was hoping for more, but did garner enough advice to make the listen worthwhile.

    When the Muslims swept out of the Arabian peninsula in the eighth century, one of the first areas to fall under their power was the Holy Land; it was an event that would have long term consequences for three distinct civilizations.

    Larry says: "Need To Know Basics First"
    "Boring!"
    Overall

    I don't know why, but I expected something different. It probably does present a more accurate presentation of events and the history that led up to the crusades, but it so boring and dry that I couldn't finish reading the book let alone remember what I had just listened to 10 minutes earlier. If you just want plain historical facts, then this is the book for you. If you are looking for entertainment, seek elsewhere.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "Really Great!"
    Overall

    Brown out does himself with this novel. I couldn't stop listening to the end after just a few minutes into the book. The movie doesn't do this book justice at all. There is so much more to the story. This follows on from his previous novel, Angels and Demons, and does so without a hic-cup. Really great stuff and one of the more superior readers brings the story to life.

    After Tripoli declared war on the United States in 1801, Barbary pirates captured 300 U.S. sailors and marines. President Jefferson sent navy squadrons to the Mediterranean, but he also authorized a secret mission to overthrow the government of Tripoli. He chose an unlikely diplomat, William Eaton, to lead the mission, but before Eaton departed, Jefferson grew wary of the affair and withdrew his support.

    Stewart Kennedy says: "EXCELLENT"
    "Great History!"
    Overall

    Really an entertaining book. This is one of the best listens that I have heard in a long time. I never knew this history before and would never have guessed that anyone could lead such an exciting and dangerous life in those times. The history was presented in such an interesting way that I laughed and cringed at the same time as the narrator presented the story. The story teller does an above excellent job in making the history come alive for the listener.
