    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What made the experience of listening to The Witness the most enjoyable?

    At first it seemed like a very predictible book with situations hard to believe, but the main character quickly wraps you and the story develops smoothly. In general a great story with an excellent balance of suspense and light reading.


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

    Excellent performance, when listening to her, my mind was placed right with the characters and the story.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold ""human error"" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

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

    This audiobook ranks among my top 3 reads.


    What other book might you compare The Martian to and why?

    It is not easy to compare because it has many funny moments, and a lot of technical data.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Watney answered back to NASA about his condition in Mars.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent read! at first there's too much technical stuff so one has to be patient because later the book flows nicely with plenty of funny moments and interesting physics data. I've enjoyed it very much.

    Chief of State Natasi Daala has been overthrown, and the Jedi Order has taken control of the Galactic Alliance. But while the new governors dismantle Daala's draconian regime, forces still loyal to the deposed official are mobilizing a counterstrike. And even the Jedi's new authority may not be enough to save Tahiri Veila, the former Jedi Knight and onetime Sith apprentice convicted of treason for the killing of Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon. Meanwhile, Luke and Ben Skywalker are relentlessly pursuing Abeloth, the powerful dark-side entity bent on ruling the galaxy.

    Matt Z says: "You know who you are..."
    "Great story and sound effects"
    Overall

    I'm a Star Wars fan and I liked the story. At first keeping up with the characters is difficult due to their unfamiliar names and races, but once you understand who's who, the story evolves well. For a Star Wars novel, it is a good book.

    Former FBI Special Agent Will Piper solved and survived the "Doomsday Killer" case, and his reward was a forced early retirement. But the shattering truths he learned about the government's most covert operations won't let him rest and now he's on the trail of a mysterious volume that's been lost for six centuries.

    Brian says: "Must Read!"
    "Excellent book!"
    Overall

    It is the second part of his book Secret of the Seventh Son and I loved both. Book of Souls at the end the story sort of looses grip, but overall it is a great read.

    Alex Hawke has all but given up on life. The British-American MI6 counterterrorism operative lost the woman he loved almost a year ago and has sought refuge at the bottom of a rum bottle ever since. But late one night at his home on Bermuda, he receives a wake-up call... literally. His Royal Highness Prince Charles, an old friend, desperately needs his help. The prince has discovered a not-so-subtle threat directed toward the British royal family.

    Constance says: "I got my Alex Hawke fix!!!!"
    "Entertaining"
    Overall

    The plot is simple and entertaining but sometimes the author makes it difficult to follow by sudden jumps from past to present. For this type of novel, some situations are hard to believe as plausible, but is good reading. The narration by Mr. Shea was excellent.
