  • Captain Vorpatril's Alliance

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Lois McMaster Bujold
    • Narrated By Grover Gardner
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Captain Ivan Vorpatril is happy with his relatively uneventful bachelor's life as a staff officer to a Barrayaran admiral. Cousin to imperial troubleshooter Miles Vorkosigan, Ivan is not far down the hereditary list for the emperorship. Thankfully, new heirs have directed that headache elsewhere, leaving Ivan to enjoy his life on Komarr, far from the Byzantine court politics of his home system. But when an old friend in Barrayaran intelligence asks Ivan to protect an attractive young woman who may be on the hit list of a criminal syndicate, his chivalrous nature takes over. It seems danger and adventure have once more found Captain Vorpatril.

    Barbara M. Sullivan says: "We are finally allowed to see Ivan without Miles."
    "Read the entire Vorkosigan series, then read this"
    What made the experience of listening to Captain Vorpatril's Alliance the most enjoyable?

    I can't wait to get back in the car to listen to the next chapter. A new plot twist just at the right moment . . . over and over again.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captain Vorpatril's Alliance?

    If you love Bujold's Vorkosigan universe, this book brings together the events and the people of a dozen prior books with new viewpoints and revelations.

    Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favorite?

    The role of Ivan Vorpatril had been under-developed before this book. You will like the trouble Ivan can get himself into . . . . and out of.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just when all seems lost, Ivan finds a novel use for breakfast cereal.

  • Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By Bill O'Reilly, Martin Dugard
    • Narrated By Bill O'Reilly
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Daniel says: "History Made Interesting"
    "No Apologies Hero Worship"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Lincoln to be better than the print version?

    Bill O'Reilly's voice adds a dimension of hero worship to a text that gives irony and texture to the deep emotions that ran through Washington in 1865. I find it easy to relate to the history when Bill O'Reilly shows his take on the conspirators, the southern sympathizers, and the generals on both sides. I'll bet that Martin Dugard did great research, but I think Bill O'Reilly's narration adds greatly to the storytelling.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abe Lincoln is, of course, the hero of any story of his hopes and dreams for welcoming the South back in to the union without acrimony.

    Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first Bill O'Reilly book I have listened to.

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

    I found myself anxious to get back into the car so that I could hear the next snippet of the book on my commute to and from work.
