    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."

    I've been an audible member for 3 years, and this is the first review I've submitted, largely because this book was such a huge disappointment. After reading the glowing reviews I expected much more than I got. Many passages of the story were redundant, and the sexual content seemed sophomoric at best. I managed to get through to the end, but it was difficult. I didn't much care for the reader, either so I definitley won't take on the sequel.

    Jussi Adler-Olsen is Denmark's premier crime writer. His books routinely top the bestseller lists in northern Europe, and he's won just about every Nordic crime-writing award, including the prestigious Glass Key Award-also won by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo. Now, Dutton is thrilled to introduce him to America.

  • The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption

    Story

    Animal lovers and sports fans were shocked when the story broke about NFL player Michael Vick’s brutal dogfighting operation. But what became of the dozens of dogs who survived? As acclaimed writer Jim Gorant discovered, their story is the truly newsworthy aspect of this case.

    Kim says: "Great Book!!!"
    "Bless you Bad Rap, and all the others"
    Overall

    Wonderful book, made me love pit bulls. The caregivers for these mistreated animals should be given an award. The love given to these dogs (and received from them as well) took a lot of courage, but it all paid off. Hopefully this story will inspire more people to donate time to rehabilitate injured or abused animals. Johnny (Rotten) Justice rocks.

    Adam March is a self-made “Master of the Universe.” He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mounting—until the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words: your sister called.

    Shelby says: "A cynic and a cynical dog - PERFECT!!"

    Overall

    Being a loving pit bull owner, it was wonderful to listen to a story that so accurately described the bonding between man and dog. Ms. Wilson described the true traits of the breed when in a happy environment. Well written!

    Story
    (3486)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    Overall

    Of the 125 books I've listened to, this one is my favorite. The human characters were beautifully developed, but Enzo the dog will steal your heart. The story brings out a full range of emotions; I laughed many times, and cried when it was over. My husband is listening to it now, and he thinks it's great too. Don't miss it.
