    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Story

    This audio book caught me from the first sentence. This has never happened to me before, though I have listened to a few of Edward Hermann's narrations and many other great audio books. He has the ability to not take over the book, but deliver it with the proper emotions and feelings for the subject. This book was fantastic, never lagging.

  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language

    This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

    When I purchased this audio I wasn't sure what to expect, but it quickly fascinated me to learn how English became such a widely used language, how it evolved and where the origin of many of our words today came from. Wonderfully read and informative. Just what I was hoping for.

    In 1991, acting on a tip from a local fisherman, two scuba divers discovered a sunken German U-boat, complete with its crew of 60 men, not too far off the New Jersey coast. The divers, realizing the momentousness of their discovery, began probing the mystery. Over the next six years, they became expert and well-traveled researchers, taught themselves German, hunted for clues in Germany, and constructed theories corrective of the history books, all in an effort to identify this sunken U-boat and its crew.

    Story

    My husband really enjoys true stories and so I often choose with him in mind. This book captured my attention from the very first and kept it all the way to the end. It was written so well we could picture the characters and feel their reactions to all the happenings they encountered. An excellent audio and the conversation at the end with the author and some of the divers was the icing on the cake. Well worth the listen.
