    A vivid and incisive portrait of Winston Churchill during wartime from acclaimed historian Max Hastings, Winston's War captures the full range of Churchills endlessly fascinating character. At once brilliant and infuriating, self-important and courageous, Hastings' Churchill comes brashly to life as never before.

    Charles Fred Smith says: "A Definitive History of Winston's War"
    "Winston's War Churchill 1940 - 1945"
    Overall

    I have listen to books all about HItler and wanted to get a balance so this Churchill booked helped balance my feeling regarding history for WW II - Churchill was quite a guy.

    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!!"

    Loved the book it kept me listening almost through the entire book. -As for the movie was OK and it made it much more easy to follow the movie due to fact i listen to the book.

  • Shooter: The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper

    Now Coughlin has written a highly personal story about his deadly craft, taking readers deep inside an invisible society that is off-limits to outsiders. This is not a heroic battlefield memoir but the careful study of an exceptional man who must keep his sanity while carrying forward one of the deadliest legacies in the U.S. military today.

    Loyd Phillips says: "Definately worth reading"

    Overall

    This was not what i thought it would be - Dick Hill for me narrated the book with heavy east coast words turned me off. To me i guess the writer thought alot about himself and got into himself too much. Sorry

    There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

    Get story about a young man fighting for his country. He helped put the sniper as important personel for us and the future fighting for the USA

    The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain’s death. In celebration of this important milestone, here, for the first time, is Mark Twain’s uncensored autobiography, in its entirety, exactly as he left it. This major literary event offers the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain’s authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave, as he intended.

    Sorry this audio book was not very good. If i could get my credit back I would be very happy.

    The organized criminal gangs of the former Soviet Union are bound by what they call the thieves' code. The first rule is this: A thief must forsake his mother, father, brothers, and sisters. He must have no family - no wife, no children - because only other criminals are his family. If any of the rules are broken, it is punishable by death.

    Mystery Addict says: "Not Elvis but a good listen"
    "The first rule"

    This was a good book just a little slow but OK. I think my liking is more info history

    One day in 1957, in the third-grade classroom of St. Brigid's parochial school, an exasperated Sister Mary Lurana bent over a restless young William O'Reilly and said, "William, you are a bold, fresh piece of humanity." Little did she know that she was, early in his career as a troublemaker, defining the essence of Bill O'Reilly and providing him with the title of his brash and entertaining issues-based memoir.

    James says: "Avid Reader Explains Bold Fresh is a must Listen"
    "Bold fresh piece Bill O'Reilly"
    Overall

    Very good as it told you about Bill O'Reilly as he was growing up and his background. Very good and just gives you a better understanding about Bill

    Based on three years of research and reporting, as well as 850 interviews with sources, many of whom have never before spoken for publication, Oprah is the first comprehensive biography of one of the most influential, powerful, and admired public figures of our time, by the most widely read biographer of our era.
