    Why is it so difficult for men and women to get along? In this phenomenally popular and effective work, Dr. John Gray illustrates how differences in communication styles, behavior, and emotional needs can drive the two sexes apart, and offers ways to help keep them together.

    "loved the hard-copy and loved the audio book"
    Overall

    almost everyone has heard of this title unless you live in a cave on an island without any access to society and the opposite sex ... listened to it 3 times (on different flights) - makes me laugh even now just thinking about it ...

    Orson Scott Card tells a tale long awaited by millions of fans: the story of how Bean turned away from his first friend, Ender, and became the tactical genius who won the Earth for Ender's brother, Peter, who became the Hegemon.

    Michael says: "Great book, poor transfer"
    "a must have"
    Overall

    ... if you have the rest of the series ... much better than speaker for the dead but somewhat predictable and repetitive at times ... kept interesting by the very excellent narrators who do an outstanding job for every book in this series ... buy it for that alone if you enjoy audio books ...

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    CoCo says: "Excellent and engaging"
    "not a winner"
    Overall

    ... predictable and corny ... outside of the "lion's" unexpected method of arrival ...

    In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

    Joe says: "The Enderverse"
    "interesting series component"
    Overall

    ...but not nearly as entertaining as ender's game ... a must have only if you are planning on listening/reading the entire series

    In the latest from Nelson DeMille (author of The Lion's Game), Paul Brenner is called out of CID retirement to investigate the murder 30 years ago of an army lieutenant in Vietnam. Brenner's trip up country, with a beautiful American expatriate for company, will lead him to uncover an explosive, long-buried secret.

    James B says: "You Must Read Up Country"
    "long, detailed, but enjoyable"
    Overall

    my first experience with this author ... the detail added realism but also some level of tedious blah, blah, blah ... will require some patience to listen to all of it but when finished it leaves you with the pleasant surprise of wanting more ...

    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"
    "outstanding!!!"
    Overall

    a winning combination - both the narrators (and there are a few) and the book - an unexpected pleasure all around ... i say unspected because i did not have anything from this author before but i will most definitely purchase the rest of the series ...

    The Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first volume in the five-part Hitchhiker "trilogy" made Douglas Adams a science fiction sensation, and is a must-listen for any and all fans of the genre. Don't forget to bring a towel!

    loved the hard-copy and loved the audio - an absolute must have for both libraries - the narrator does a superb job of capturing the very soul and essence of the book ... give me more!!!

    When Michael Garrick, a young White House lawyer, begins dating the irresistible First Daughter, Nora, he's instantly spellbound, just like everyone else in her world. A world where power is an aphrodisiac, your father is the President, your close friends wear earpieces and carry guns, and everyone watches your every move...

    Ms Discus says: "Not even Scott Brick could save it"
    "the first counsel"
    Overall

    choppy and loose ... all together uninteresting at times ... other than the narration the book was just plain boring ... this one is a sweeper not a keeper ...

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "The Company"
    Overall

    a winner - both the book and narrator - perfect all around ... give me more!!!
