  • The Waddi Tree

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Kerry McGinnis
    • Narrated By Humphrey Bower

    Two branches of the McAllister family lead very different lives on cattle stations in Central Australia. Rob, a stickler for correctness, manages a wealthy, company-owned property while his easygoing brother Sandy struggles to support his wife and son on an impoverished leasehold. When tragedy throws the families together, it ultimately drives them even further apart.

    Louise says: "Enjoyable"

    I grew up in Whyalla Australia and moved to Canada when I was 13. The writer has such a great knowledge and was able to paint a picture of the country,the weather,the relationships life on a station and so on. I really liked the book up to the ending.
    I had hoped sentimentally I suppose that the writer could had provided more detail around the conclusion between Jim and Rob, the with the marriage to Ruth and her acceptance of the brother.Would have been nice to have closure on this perhaps in an epilogue if you didn't want to do a chapter. Leaving it to s to figure let me down a bit.
    All in all a great yarn with true blue use of the language.
    I reackon some not Australian would have some problems with the lingo. I assume in the written format you have a slang dictionary or they can sure find one on the net. Nice work look forward to more form the writer.

    James says: "Different Direction"
    "Paint drying"

    Reminded me of a large box full of those plastic or foam bits to protest the content.Lots of light air little substance.
    Will writers ever stop repeating a thought over and over and over as if the reader is incapable of geting it the first time around??????
    The worst Dexter yet could have been a short story Mr Linsay...a 25 min read, Brtually slow dimwittted read.

    "Good listen"

    Well as someone that grew up down under and moved to Canada in 1966 it was a pleasure to read a rather well put together novel weaving the history of early Australia.Liked it so much I listened to the second. Glad to see you had the intestinal fortitude to kill off the husbands and feature some strong females here. There were a lot of tough women down under back then.Good on ya!
    Nice job Tamara!
    Look forward to the third in this series.
    Recommned it to all that like a good story a bit of history and yes a bit of romance.

  • Bitten: Women of the Otherworld, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Kelley Armstrong
    • Narrated By Aasne Vigesaa
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey. Elena Michaels is a werewolf.

    Autumn says: "My favorite Audio title"
    "more like a needle prick"

    Harlequin romance disguised as and Anne Rice wanna be novel. Take a miss and save yourself the boredom. Author should pay us to listen to it.
    more filler than a strawbery mousse.

    A User says: "Great Listen"
    "good bad and ugly"

    There are some very good parts some ugly and some bad.
    The one thing I found absolutely distracting that this author and others seem to do is repeat repeat repeat. STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT...there my contribution. We are not idiots we can remember facts outlined earlier in a work. Kills a book for me.
    Guess the writer gets paid by the word.

  • The Kite Runner

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Khaled Hosseini
    • Narrated By Khaled Hosseini

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    P. C..S. says: "A Worhty Read"

    Well I cant agree with those glowing reviewers. It must be some sort of jump on the Afghanistan is now topical syndrome. All that aside and it is nice he got out with the illegitimate brother in tact well sort of.

    Although I needed an aspirin with all the repetition in this book. Why is it that some writers think it is necessary to painfully repeat items over and over to the point where it was like listening to a speaker say a...ah.... ah....while they wonder what else to say.

    I felt for the guy and his flight from an upper class life to one of roughing it tough. Some of us have lived tougher lives mate.. The beating and having to deal with the issues of sexual predators and rape based on race creed or culture. Nice to know Islam is about a crazy sexually as the west. In the end though I found this work probably wouldn't get a look at if it wasn't about that place we have sent our armies to. Fairly boring actually slow, plodding,simplistic, repetitive story which sounded like it was written by a college student.
    If you are interested pick it up second hand somewhere don't pay the full price.

  • Plunder: The Specialists, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Chet Cunningham
    • Narrated By Gene Engene

    When an American dies under suspicious circumstances in Berlin, the Specialists are called in to investigate. The victim was trying to track down a missing fortune that belonged to his Jewish grandfather during World War II. It was part of a secret stash extorted by a corrupt Nazi unit offering escape to Jews bound for concentration camps. Except the Nazis kept the loot and sent most of their prisoners to their deaths. After the war, both the Nazis and the fortune disappeared.

    George says: "Terrible"

    Forget this one. Simplistic and devoid of any imagination. The narration stunk-bad German accents. Cant figure out how it was published other than who do you know.Waste of time and money. I suppose my hats off you managed to hook me for the cost of one but I would not read any more.
    The set up is some special group selected top of their craft experts yet they are like Keystone Cops really.It was almost embarrasing to read.

  • The Da Vinci Code

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By Dan Brown
    • Narrated By Paul Michael
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "Fine bit of Capitalism."

    I have to agree with the naysayers here. Lame. My hat is off to him though all you need is a hook and some bait and what better than religion as the worm.Caought most of us and ended up making a bundle. Got to love the golden fleece. Best seller No way. But hey pet rocks sold the same way and made a bundle.
