    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Story
    If you could sum up Killing Kennedy in three words, what would they be?

    Adventure in History. The book is written more like an adventure story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The book was not really character driven


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

    Yes. This book is right on par with Killing Lincoln.


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

    Yes. I had to force myself to put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are into history, you will really enjoy this and Killing Lincoln as well. I really enjoyed Bill's narration as well.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    Very Dated. Very stupid. Kinda like Buck Rodgers meets the Ewoks. After 5 years of Premium membership this is only the 2nd book I could not finish. If you are looking for Lucifer's Hammer, move along. This is not the book you are looking for.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Story

    Not being a YA maybe I'm am missing something. I really wanted to like this but sadly could not. I enjoyed the Hunger Games Series but this book was noticeably deficient and lacking in so many different areas. The basic setting for the story is somewhat believable but the circumstances make no sense. Adults (what few there are) are portrayed as idiots. The story wonders around way to much and then brings everything together in the last 20 min. Characters show almost super-human skills. All this adds up to an unbelievable story. I kept listening thinking it would get better, it never did.

    In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out.

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    Outnumbered by the superior forces and firepower of the Syndicate Worlds, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous retreat across the enemy star system. Led by the legendary Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who returned to the fleet after a hundred-year suspended animation, the Alliance is desperately trying to return home with its captured prize: the key to the Syndic hypernet, and the key to victory.

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    I found the story was a little long winded, and the characters were bland. I will give the next book in the series and hope it picks up a bit.

    1893 is a tough year in Montana, and any job is a good job. When Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer sign on as ranch hands at the secretive Bar-VR cattle spread, they're not expecting much more than hard work, bad pay, and a comfortable campfire around which they can enjoy their favorite pastime: scouring Harper's Weekly for stories about the famous Sherlock Holmes.

    This is an enjoyable romp through the old west with a Holmes feel to it. There was plenty of light humor mixed in. Not a deep thriller, just good entertainment. William Dufris was right on the money. There was some rough language, but not vulgar. Enjoyable to find a book not filled with sex, vampires, zombies, etc.

    The world has changed. The mercantile kingdom of Charis has prevailed over the alliance designed to exterminate it. Armed with a multitude of small technological improvements - better sailing vessels, better guns, better devices of all sorts - Charis faced the combined navies of the rest of the world at Darcos Sound and Armageddon Reef, and broke them.

    I don't think I will continue the series as I see that Oliver Wyman isn't narrating the rest of the series and book five has a different narrator than 3 and 4. Wyman is the only reason I gave 4 stars.

    5th in series. Not much I can add. Book 4 left some unresolved plots that Book 5 ties up. New alliances, new enemies and hopefully some new toys. William Dufris' narration is perfect!!! OK where's # 6?
