    Where does The Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found this high on my list.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I very much liked the main character and how she was built up. Was realistic and liked how the author helped me understand the character and was consistent in how she developed her.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    Very strong. First time I heard her and liked her.

    Story

    From the locked archives of the Vatican to the overgrown jungles of Ethiopia, an unlikely trio begins a deadly search for the Holy Grail. Two journalists and a beautiful photographer are traveling together in a broken down Jeep while covering the 1975 Ethiopian civil war. Both men fall in love with the woman and that complicates things. When the trio winds up lost in the jungle, in the no man's land between the fighting factions, they take cover and dig in for the night. In their hiding place, they encounter a dying man who tells them an amazing and quite unbelievable story. But for some reason - one that they grapple with for the rest of their journey - that night they believe.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was really a terrific read and as always, Scott Brick brings it to life. The story line is fun to follow and keeps the listener engaged. I read the reviews and hesitated to purchase, eventhough DeMille is one of my all time favorite authors. I am writing this only as a reaction to the reviews discouraging this book. This my first post.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Quest?

    The build up an preparation to the Quest. The details and in classic DeMille, the fun of personalities of the team. You listen, smile, laugh and sometimes say ugh.....


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is the best hands down, never disappointed.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15689)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs)
    • By Laura Hillenbrand

    Story
    (7630)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    This was an amazing book and impossible to stop listening to. Both the incredible writing and the outstanding reading made this my favorite of 2011 so far. I think Laura Hiienbrand is absolutely amazing.
