    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    What made the experience of listening to George Carlin Reads to You the most enjoyable?

    George Carlin in his own words.


    Any additional comments?

    After buying this title I was somewhat disappointed that most of the material is straight from his stand ups. Being an owner of some of Carlin's recorded live performances I found very little fresh material in this audiobook. My lower rating is only due to the lack of fresh material. I would recommend this title to anyone who doesn't already own his live recordings.

    Rebellion is the turning point in the great interstellar war between all living creatures and the machines. Star Force is on the side of the machines...but for how long? In the third book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs learns just what kind of war Earth is caught up in. At the mercy of the Macros, his marines fight against new alien races, big and small. They battle the innocent and the vile alike, until their situation becomes grim. Rebellion is a military science-fiction novel by best-selling author B. V. Larson.

    If you could sum up Rebellion in three words, what would they be?

    Bloody Meat Grinder


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark Boyett is a great performer who continues to breathe life into characters in yet another Star force novel.


    Any additional comments?

    "Rebellion" keeps the action coming. Rigg's Pigs are in for another bloodbath in V.B Larson's third installment of the "Star force" series. If you've made it this far you know the score, and life for Star Force Marines is about to get worse. Book 3 does a good job of adding more humor, drama, and gore into the mix without slowing things down. Better than book 2.

    In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission--one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.

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

    If you like old school action where the main character kicks butt and gets the girl, this is probably a good series for you. If you're looking for complex characters, dialogue, or scientific theory, you might want to save your credit.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If "Swarm: Star Force, Book 1" picked you up and wouldn't put you down, "Extinction: Star Force, Book 2" will inject you with Nanos. V.B. Larson does a great job of creating a world where action is king, and one suicidal man is just crazy enough to try filling the leading role. This is a fast paced, fun read that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's sprinkled with science, space, and tech, but keeps things flowing.

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Would you listen to The Historian again? Why?

    I don't think so. The Historian has a fun concept, but was a little slow for my taste.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters come to life fairly well.


    Any additional comments?

    The author does a decent job of building up anticipation; however I found myself putting this book down more than others in the genre. If you're looking for a casual listen, enjoy old books, and vampires... you should pick up a copy of The Historian.

    Arguably the most organized man in America, Andrew J.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book might be great for anyone suffering from clinical OCD.


    What could Andrew J. Mellen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The author should have taken out the trash. Instead of making a point in a single sentence the author beats his topics to death over long stretches of time.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He took the time to write it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you think this book might have value to you, check it out from the library before you decide to buy. The audible sample snippet is the only interesting moment in the first 32 minutes of this title. In the first 45 minutes the reader learns that they're not their stuff and that it's okay to get rid of an extra copy of a book.
