  • Uncle Tom's Cabin

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Harriet Beecher Stowe
    • Narrated By Richard Allen
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Uncle Tom's Cabin opens with a Kentucky farmer named Arthur Shelby facing the loss of his farm because of debts. Even though he and his wife, Emily Shelby, believe that they have a benevolent relationship with their slaves, Shelby decides to raise the needed funds by selling two of them - Uncle Tom, a middle-aged man with a wife and children, and Harry, the son of Emily Shelby's maid Eliza - to a slave trader.

    Steven says: "More on Richard Allen"
    "loved the book the lecture was very outdated"

    I absolutely loved the book and the reader. It is an acurate and solemn look into the past. I however was suprised that the last chapter was so outdated. We have a black president. I am glad these times of oppression are past. It is time to move on past the sins of others, and enjoy the current times.
    It is so sad that this last chapter was not removed as it spoils the entire feeling of the book.

  • Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 1 min)
    • By Glenn Beck
    • Narrated By Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, Steve "Stu" Burguiere

    Idiots can't be identified through voting records, they can be found only by looking for people who hide behind stereotypes, embrace partisanship, and believe that bumper-sticker slogans are a substitute for common sense. If you know someone who fits the bill, then Arguing with Idiots will help you silence them once and for all with the ultimate weapon: the truth.

    James says: "Good facts...average humor"
    "very informative"

    you would have to be an idiot to not see the truths in this book. The liberals are scared of this man for good reason, he tells the truth. All of the facts in this book are backed with actual data not make believe data like other media outlets spew.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Stieg Larsson
    • Narrated By Simon Vance
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "slow but interesting"

    good story line, but could have been done in about 1/4 the time. Half way through the second part it got interesting. Had the narrator not been so good I would have never listened to the whole book. Great short story , terribly long unabridged novel.
    Figured out the ending 6 hours into the 21 hour novel.......I really wanted to listen to part two, but it will have to wait until I am desperate enough to trudge through it.

  • Glenn Beck's Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Glenn Beck
    • Narrated By Glenn Beck
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Glen Beck, the number-one New York Times best-selling author and popular radio and television host, revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government's easy solutions, two-part monopoly, and illogical methods, and take back our great country.

    Jason says: "Conditionality"
    "must read"

    this is not a one sided book based on political views but a road map to what is currently happening to our country and what we can do to keep it the greatest nation on earth

  • One Second After

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By William R. Forstchen
    • Narrated By Joe Barrett
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Sara says: "A terrifying story"
    "chilling emotional rollercoaster"

    This is by far the most chilling and scary book I've listened to thus far. There is not one slow spot in this book. You will be changed in your view of national security and the need for a plan to deal with large scale disasters.
    The narration was amazing and added tone of drama to an already dramatic story....well done

  • The Shack

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Wm. Paul Young
    • Narrated By Roger Mueller

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "my whole family loved it"

    I listened to this book with my wife and daughter on a road trip. Everyone took away something different and valuable. I have since listened to it 2 more times. One of the best books I've listened to.

  • The Golden Compass: His Dark Materials, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 41 mins)
    • By Philip Pullman
    • Narrated By Philip Pullman, full cast
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Arnold says: "A Terrific Book"
    "dont be afraid of others veiws"

    I liked the book. It was a great adventure. I am a Christian, but I don't believe that hiding from the fact that not everyone is a Christian helps anyone. We have to be aware that there are athiests out there and some of them, as is the case with this author, are talented. Instead of running and hiding we should be writting stories of our own. perretti and dekker on hot on their tales. When their movies hit the big screen I hope we still have freedom of speech in this country so we can portray our side of the story. A lot of men died for our right to free speech. All preaching aside this is a fun tale that I fully intend to take my 11 year old to see. I will explain to her, or better yet read to her, how Genesis actually goes. Then we will get popcorn and enjoy the show.

  • Water for Elephants

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Sara Gruen
    • Narrated By David LeDoux, John Randolph Jones
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "something new"

    I loved this book because it was something different, not the same old rehashed idea. If your looking for a great story and a new topic, than this is a great read. Can't wait for more from this author

  • The Cleaner

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By Brett Battles
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    Bernie says: "excellent from start to finish"
    "non stop action"

    loved this book. It keeps you wondering and is an exciting read
