    This was recommended by a friend and I loved it. The book had a great storyline, the ending was not what I expected at all. I could not put this down, and had to keep listening until I finished it.

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Loved it. The book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The narrator was a little annoying but I got over it because the book was so good. A must listen/read. I couldnt wait to get into my car to go to work to listen to the book. I finished it a little too fast.

    I got this book on the 4.95 page and it was one of the best books I have read ever. The narrator was awesome too. I could not stop listening. When the book ended I paid full price for Part 2 Key of Knowledge, and now I just finished that one and am on to Part 3 Key of Valor. The book made me feel like I was in the book. I cant wait to get started on Part 3. I know I will be so upset when it's over. This is a must read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love Dean Koontz, but this was one of my favorite. The narrator was good and the story wonderful. The dog and his master, I felt like I was part of the book while I was listening to it. I could not stop listening from the time I started.

    At first I was a little bored with the beginning and then after the first and second chapter I was hooked. It had so many twists and turns and it all ended with a fantastic ending. Wow. This is the first book by Kevin Guilfoile but I will definitely look into other books from him.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story

    I read a lot of reviews about this book saying how wonderful it was. I am disagreeing 100%. The narrations were fine but the story was horrible. I do like science fiction type books, thought maybe it was going to be like Hunger Games, but I couldnt even get to the end. I kept trying and trying but I just ordered another book for running with of the $4.95 list. I wasted a credit and I'm not happy.

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

    I just could not get into this book. I thought it was repeatative and pretty much common sense that we have heard our whole lives. I never finished it. Definitely would not recommend. Eat healthy and exercise. Best advice and you dont have to read the book.

    This book was one of the best books I have listened to yet. The narration as well as the storyline was fantastic. The book gave me a better understanding of the Holocoust (informative) and what happened during that time. I could not put my earphones down, even snuck them into work because I had to finish the book. I would recommend this book highly.

    Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were unlikely boyhood friends. Larry was the child of lower middle-class white parents, Silas the son of a poor, single, black mother - their worlds as different as night and day. Yet a special bond developed between them in Chabot, Mississippi. But within a few years, tragedy struck. In high school, a girl who lived up the road from Larry had gone to the drive-in movie with him and nobody had seen her again.
