    A tongue-in-cheek private detective with all the answers...and all the problems! This hilarious sleuth show combines the best of old-time radio acting with modern sound effects, music recording and editing.

    Jason says: "Some Genuine Laughs"
    "Great radio show!"
    Overall

    Take Sam Spade and mix in some Kenneth Horne and you get Garson Krebs. This is a great radio show. I highly recommend those fond of old British radio farce shows to get Garson Krebs, Private Eye!

  • A Murder of Quality

    Carne School kept itself carefully apart from the small Dorset town it dominated and prided itself on preserving proper standards and social distinctions. But something terrible had happened in this enclosed world. Murder had been done and the victim was the wife of a junior master. There was an obvious suspect and everyone hoped that the whole grisly business could be cleared up quickly and discreetly.

    David says: "Good mystery but not a good Carre?"

    Overall

    I was a tiny bit disappointed in the story. I love the other Smiley novels but this one fell a bit short. Still its a good mystery and worth listening too but don't give up on the story too soon. It took me a while but I eventually got into it.

    In one way or another, everybody abused Carrie. Her fanatical mother forbade this 16-year-old misfit everything that was young and fun. She was teased and taunted by her classmates, misunderstood by her teachers, and given up as hopeless by almost everyone.

    Montilee says: "Wow. Just wow."

    Overall

    Excellent reading and the intro by King was very interesting.

    Story
    (1980)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "Good but not great"
    Overall

    Odd Thomas is a good book but its not a good Dean Koontz book. When I picked it out I was expecting something with a little more bite in it. Something that got my adrenaline going like Dragon Tears or Tick-Tock. Its still a good book, it was just an unexpected change of pace.

    Grant Archer merely wanted to study astrophysics, to work quietly as an astronomer on the far side of the Moon. But the forces of the "New Morality", the coalition of censorious do-gooders who run 21st-century America, have other plans for him. To his distress, Grant is torn from his young bride and sent to a research station in orbit around Jupiter, charged with the task of spying on the scientists who work there.

    Kevin says: "Great Stuff!"
    "Amazing"
    Overall

    Like any SF junkie, I've heard of Ben Bova for a very long time. Unfortunately I've never got around to reading/listening to his stories, till now. I picked Jupiter for one my membership books and didn't know what to expect. Well, I'm glad I picked it, because this is great SF! A captivating story and interesting ideas.

    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.

    Jonas says: "Overall Good"
    "Rather weak."
    Overall

    This books feels though it was "dumbed down". The characters are really shallow and the little "puzzles" are a bit too easy. The books is rather like the movie "National Treasure". Its fun and entertaining but once you start to think about it, you'll find there isn't much there. I would like to point out, that the reader did an excellent job. On the whole, its a great book to clean house with. You can half-listen to it and you won't miss any thing.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    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.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Excellent reading."
    Overall

    This is a wonderful audio book. The actors really brought the book to life.

    Michael Palin is off again, this time to the seemingly desolate Sahara Desert. There's no easy way across, as he and his team discover on their most challenging expedition yet.

    David says: "A wonderful journey."
    "A wonderful journey."
    Overall

    I've known that Palin was doing these "travelogues" for some time now. But I've never gotten around to watching his shows or reading/listening to any of his books. I never really could stand the travel channel, any way.

    One day I was poking around Audible, and there it was - "Sahara". I downloaded right away. I wasn't quite sure what I expected but with the name Sahara, it had to be intresting. What I found was delightful real-life story that had me hooks for hours. I finished the whole thing in one sitting. Palin is an excellent story teller and I can't wait to listen to his other adventures.

    Ambassador Spock travels back in time to subtly warn Earth's inhabitants of impending doom while calling into question humanity's priorities. However, before the truth is told, the all-powerful being, Q, appears and reminds Spock that he is prohibited from interfering in Earth's history. Besides, Q doesn't see mankind as something worth saving.

    David says: "Very different Star Trek"
    "Very different Star Trek"
    Overall

    I was a bit shocked when I started listening because this isn't really a Star Trek book. Its more a vaudeville/farce. Once I got over the shock and started listening, I thought it was rather fun.

    It would be much better seeing the performance live but I think anyone who likes the Star Trek characters would enjoy this.

    The Navy Lark, one of radio's longest running laughter-makers, kept the nation on the crest of a comic wave from 1959 to 1977.

    David says: "Side-splitting."
    "Side-splitting."
    Overall

    I first heard the Navy Lark on my university's radio station. I was laughing so hard it hurt within the first 30 seconds. I had completely forgotten about it till I stumbled upon it on Audible and I bought it right away.

    If you've watched Dad's Army then just think of this show as the navy counter-part.
