    A mind-blowing collection of drug stories, illegal-substance-related rants and raves by a psychedelic posse of progressive performers. Proceeds benefit the Drug Policy Alliance, an awesome group of freedom fighters who believe that you shouldn't be punished for what you put in your own body.

    DON’T WAIST YOUR MONEY.
    This is a waist if time and Money. All you get is random bits and peaces of a comedy act. What a disappointment. In some parts the sound is so bad that it is hard to hear what is said. At least edit it so it is presentable.
    A greet Disappointment I never expected Audible to let bad quality like this be sold on there wed site.
    Maybe a co-op was doing this for there summer project.
    Please do your self a good turn and delete it from your on line library.
    Most Sincerely Iwan Altman
    I rate this a -5 ***** That is the same as a full moon.

    One Colonel Ardenti, who has unnaturally black, brilliantined hair, a carefully groomed mustache, wears maroon socks, and who once served in the Foreign Legion, starts it all. He tells three Milan book editors that he has discovered a coded message about a Templar Plan, centuries old and involving Stonehenge, a plan to tap a mystic source of power far greater than atomic energy.

    Kenneth says: "too much missing"

    Foucault Pendulum I was looking forward to hearing this book and reading along with a hard copy (it’s how I learned English) . But not this time the book was completely chanced made in to some kind of translation audible style. I understand I can’t chance audible reasoning behind that, but please for future reference Identify in bold letters

    “This book is an audible translation and nowhere near the real book as it was meant to be read by the Author”

    That way I and many other who want to know the real writings know not to by this audible book.
    Now let’s see if you will publish criticism, as well as compliments.
    Thank you for reading this,
    Sincerely Iwan from Independence, Kentucky

    Raised in Manhattan by her overly protective, sex therapist mother who wore "seven layers of shoulder pads" and her two doting grandparents, life in Wendy Spero's world has never been dull. As a child, she passed the time organizing impromptu "garage sales" on city sidewalks, sniffing fruit-scented magic markers to intoxication, parenting dozens of high-maintenance stuffed animals, and seeking out other "microthrills", which she writes about in this hilarious book of odd but true stories.

    Austin says: "hilarious"

    Microthrills Wendy Spero

    Yes defiantly, totally, it’s like I’m totally listening to my little sister conversation with how care she is taking to, and yes 6 hours of it you heard me right 6 hours not 4 not 5 but yes 6 hours and on and on. God help poor Wendy. I wish I can get my credit back for this one it is by far the worst ever. As in I’m going like so crazy with this live of what is her name? Wendy is it like in Hamburger ye that’s it Wendy like in Hamburger

    That is what she stalk like in this book all of it you can’t really tell at what point this teen is a teen or a grown up.

    John Wells is the only American CIA agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda. Since before the attacks in 2001, Wells has been hiding in the mountains of Pakistan, biding his time, building his cover.

    This is a greet book I have listen to it twice already, and that is not just because I did not have the money to by another book.
    Is that the real James bond? This seems more realistic then the old one. You remember him 007 (only when you play with it)
    Or maybe it is because I can relate to this it seems to be more percent day. After some time I was wondering if this is really or fiction.

    The world has changed forever. Across America, technology has been eclipsed by magic, and people are changing into the embodiments of their darkest desires and deepest fears. In this new time, former lawyer Cal Griffin has united a small group of outcasts to battle the chaos.

    Some time it got boring “get on with it already” kind of thing. I had to get away from it. But all in all It was good would make a good movie of the week.
