    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours.

    What made the experience of listening to The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich the most enjoyable?

    This is well written, and fascinating history. The narrator was also excellent. Who'd have thought that after 57 hours I would not want it to end. I found myself asking "what happened next?"

  • Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose

    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    What did you love best about Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose?

    This is about the best I can imagine audible has to offer. The story is great. The reading was wonderful. I've read reviews about the translation not being so great well all I can say is it shines through for me wonderfully!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose?

    There are so many memorable moments it is impossible to pick just one.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    I started another book and went back to listen to this a second time. Part of that is because I miss the voice. He has a wonderful storytellers voice. I also liked how he did the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is hard to believe that a book so long can continue to keep me so engaged but it did right up to the end.

    Worm: The First Digital World War tells the story of the Conficker worm, a potentially devastating piece of malware that has baffled experts and infected more than twelve million computers worldwide. When Conficker was unleashed in November 2008, cybersecurity experts did not know what to make of it. Exploiting security flaws in Microsoft Windows, it grew at an astonishingly rapid rate, infecting millions of computers around the world within weeks.

    What made the experience of listening to Worm the most enjoyable?

    This is an interesting story about a world I know little about. I like the way the author weaved some information in as to how things work in the computer world, as I like to understand how things work. It is an engaging story, a mystery. Well written and well narrated.
