  • Glenn Beck's Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government

    Glen Beck, the number-one New York Times best-selling author and popular radio and television host, revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government's easy solutions, two-part monopoly, and illogical methods, and take back our great country.

    Jason says: "Conditionality"
    "An impassioned plea for common sense"
    Overall

    Great read. Straight forward. Should be mandatory for every person in the federal government.

    If it was mandatory for high school students this country would be turned on its head.

    Since its completion in 1971, the New American Standard Bible has been widely embraced as "the most literally accurate English translation" from the original languages. Millions of people, students, scholars, pastors, missionaries, and laypersons alike, trust the NASB, learning from it and applying it to the challenges of their daily lives. Discover what the original text says, word for word.

    Ricardo says: "Good to Have Bible on Audio"
    "I love my bible..."
    Overall

    The NASB is a great bible translation. The narration is of good quality. Unfortunately audible divided the audio presentation is such a way it is nearly impossible to find a particular book or chapter in the presentation.

    Unless you intend to use this as a listen from beginning to end don't get it. If you would like to be able to find books and chapters select a different presentation on audible.

    The St. Charles Players present a unique telling of Owen Wister's classic Western, in a new multi-cast dramatization performed in exciting Radio Theatre style.

    Overall

    If you've read the book this audio presentation will be a tremendous let down.

    The full book is excellent. I suggest dumping this audio and finding an unabridged audio. Unfortunately it is not available on audible at this time.

  • One Second After

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "A novel for the ill-prepared"
    Overall

    This is an interesting take on what an EMP attack on the US might look like. It is not a "how to survive" manual, rather it is a book about what will likely happen to ill prepared individuals.

    This book will make you think about your own personal responsibility toward yourself and your family.

    After the Robinsons - a minister, his wife, and their 4 young sons - are shipwrecked on a desert island, they must adapt to their new environment, which includes exotic birds and animals, but none of the comforts they enjoyed in their native Switzerland. Without modern conveniences or even clocks and calendars, the Robinsons must use common sense to build a home, find food, and tame the island's wild animals.

    Tabatha says: "Awesome version!!!!!!!"
    "Well worth the time."
    Overall

    This is a particularly good book for younger boys. Much is here to help build character while being most entertaining.

  • It's Superman!

    Opening with the young Clark Kent on a date, this novel takes an entirely fresh approach to the emergence of his superpowers and the start of his newspaper career, following him from rural 1930s Kansas across America to Hollywood in its golden age and then to New York City. He meets a worldly Lois Lane and conniving political boss Lex Luthor, and begins his battles against criminal masterminds, mad scientists, and super villains inspired by fascists.

    G. Bledsoe says: "It's Superman!"
    "Probably not what you are expecting."
    Overall

    After about two hours into this book you will probably realize that this is not your traditional superman - man of virtue and steel, nor is Lois Lane the modern, charming yet moral person.

    First, Clark Kent is a rather weak minded individual. His actual role in the book is very limited. One thing is certain Clark Kent is a self-proclaimed atheist - "I don't believe there is a God" - exactly what would expect from our superhero. But what else should we expect when early on we are told Clark's father is a pagan.

    My dear Lois is a fairly loose woman, having sexual encounters with at least 3 different men, but not Clark. If fact Lois sleeps with a guy who is to be Clark's best friend. Sleeps with another guy who is to be the husband of one of Lois's best friend. And lets not forget the older professor. Of course as Lois says "A modern girl should have experiences with a variety of men, including older men"

    The only thing that draws you into this story is the excellent narration and the hope that the story will actually take you somewhere.

    The narration is awesome and really the only redeeming quality of this book.
