    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    "horrible"
    Overall

    Dan Brown is a great writer, but this audio book isn't even laughably bad -- it's just horrible. The narrator is atrocious. Read this one the old-fashioned way. You won't regret it.

    The polls indicate that 60 percent of Americans are "upset or angry" about this land in which we now live - a land where crooked courts select the president and money rules the day. If you're feeling the same way, here's the book for you. Michael Moore, the award-winning provocateur behind Roger & Me, returns to size up the new century - and that big, ugly special-interest group that's laying waste to the world as we know it: stupid white men.

    Irene says: "Frustrated: oversimplifing and diluting of issues"
    "No Reservations"
    Overall

    Moore takes no reservations when it comes to criticism of the sad state of our government--and Dubya himself. Unfortunately, his relentless potshots paint him as an immature smartass. It makes for a but-gusting listen, though. That is, if you voted for Gore or Nader.

    To that end, the Narrator couldn't be more perfect. I usually tend to stay away from audiobooks in which the Author him- or herself hasn't narrated it, but the exception I made in this case was well-rewarded. Not only do I have any reservations about recommending this book, but I also can now see why it was such a huge best-seller for so long.

    Enjoy!

  • Naked in Baghdad: The Iraq War as Seen by National Public Radio's Correspondent

    One of only sixteen unembedded American journalists who stayed in Baghdad's now-legendary Palestine Hotel throughout the American invasion of Iraq, NPR's Anne Garrels was at the very center of the storm. She brings us the sights, sounds, and smells of our latest war with unparalleled vividness and immediacy.

    Native Texan says: "My favorite book of the year!"
    "Spectacular!"
    Overall

    A fantastic, ever-evolving story as told by one of the finest reporters alive today. She touches on every aspect of the war, but focuses a great deal on the politics that foreign reporters face every day--whom to pay off, whom to avoid, whom to trust, etc.

    The pace--while I doubt it would have needed tweaking in the first place--is broken up nicely by the chapters of Garrels' husband reading the "Brenda Bulletin" e-mails he sent to family, friends, and devoted fans.

    I'm a fairly new Audible-phyte, but this is easily the best title I've had the chance to listen to yet. You won't regret checking it out.

    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    Carl says: "I am politically to the left - this is just bad"
    "A Solid Read, but with an Amatuer Feel"
    Overall

    Not nearly as good as "Stupid White Men," this is still an entertaining, insightful, and thought-provoking listen. At times, Moore's writing-style feels amatuerish; his sentence-structure is at times awkward to listen to, but perhaps that is also part the Narrator's fault, whose recycled, passionate-less, and unvaried tones almost suggest a lack of intelligence.

    But I digress... If you're into political books, this should definitely be on your reading list. Witty, Classic Michael Moore. And, to disagree with another one of the reviews on this page, Moore does, actually, give a venerable plethora of suggestions on how one can go out and do his or her part to change what is a less-than-satisfactory status quo.

    Enjoy!
