    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Garth Stein

    Story
    (3486)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "Great story!"

    Story
    (282)

    Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood - facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf - his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong.

    Natalie says: "Surprisingly Even-Handed"

    Story
    Would you listen to Eating Animals again? Why?

    Yes, I found the story and the variety of the information informative and entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I suppose the author, because in a sense it was his journey.


    What does Jonathan Todd Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There is an added intensity and playfulness that keeps the listener from wondering off in thought at the mention of a concept or idea.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but in fairness I did truly appreciate a fresh approach to a stale topic.

    Story
    (2363)

    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.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Matterhorn the most enjoyable?

    The writer's ability to develop characters that you can't help but love and hate in the same breath.


    What other book might you compare Matterhorn to and why?

    All Quiet on the Western front, because they are both incredibly atmospheric novels.


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    To many amazing characters to pick just one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "A true portrait of Vietnam"

    Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty's thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.

    Purdy Oaten says: "Add 3 Hours&40 Years&Let Simmer Till Very Dark"
    "Stands the test of time!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is a testament to the power of a narrator to bring the listener in the room.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I felt the characters were individual and very real as a result of the narration.


    Have you listened to any of William Peter Blatty and Eliana Shaskan ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    If you could rename The Exorcist, what would you call it?

    The possession, but alas this is another fabulous book.
