    Seasoned journalist Tom Flynn shares his experiences on that "forever September morning" from his perspective as a journalist and neutral observer who stands apart from the event, but also as a participant, a survivor, and now a defining chronicler of the morning that changed our nation forever: September 11, 2001.

    Mebythesea says: "Absolutely wonderful"
    "If you can get past the over the top language....."
    Overall

    I really wanted to like this book. I purchased it in early 2010. I tried to listen to it back then and the over the top, flowery language was just too much. I couldn't even concentrate on the story.
    In April 2011 I decided that it deserved another try.
    Unfortunately, the result was the same. This book just didn't work for me.

    Willie says: "Excellent Read...Highly Recommended!"
    "Excellent review of the early part of his life...."
    Overall

    However, If you are looking to learn about Frederick Douglass' life and accomplishments as an adult you won't get that from this book.
    Having said that, this book is excellent. It gives a first hand account of the brutality of slavery without being overly graphic or depressing.

    My next step is to find other books that chronicle Frederick Douglass's life in the adult years.

    Over the course of this gripping narrative, Dave Cullen approaches his subjects with unrivaled care and insight. What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

    Book reader says: "Truth and heartache"
    "The REAL story. Compelling, Sad."
    Overall

    Listening to this book makes one wonder if the news media ever gets anything right. I remember watching hours of coverage on this story when it happened. After reading this book I feel as though nothing I saw on TV was the even close to the truth. This book is so in depth and interesting. It takes you into the minds of the killers. It does not in anyway glorify them. It just shows how troubled and sad they were and how people like this can live among us completely un-noticed.
    It also shows how very trusted news sources and jump to outrageous conclusions before knowing all of the facts. Anyone who remembers this sad period in our history should read this book.

    Inside Boston Doctors Hospital, patients are dying. In the glare of the operating room, they survive the surgeon's knife. But in the dark, hollow silence of the night, they die. Suddenly, inexplicably, horribly. A tough, bright doctor will risk his very life for a dedicated young nurse who unknowingly holds the answers.

    Lia says: "Enjoyable"
    "Michael Palmer fans won't be dissapointed"
    Overall

    I'm a big fan of Michael Palmer and this is another good book. The narrator does a good job. Part 2 keeps you on the edge of you seat as the story really starts to unfold.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Fantastic! Fun! Don't pass on this one!"
    Overall

    Probably the most entertaining audio book I've ever listened to.
    You will laugh and cry. The narrators are extremely talented and help bring the story to life.

    Story

    From the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic for The New York Times comes an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of the world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In this book, Huxtable looks at the architect and the man, exploring the sources of his tumultuous and troubled life and his long career as a master builder, as well as his search for lasting, true love.

    Stephen B says: "Wonderful book! Excellent reader!"
    "Not exactly what I expected"
    Overall

    As a Chicago native I've always known about Frank Lloyd Wright. Although interested in understanding more about his work, I wanted a deeper look into his personal life and his notorious relationships with various women throughout his lifetime.
    I admit I didn't finish listening to this book because it just seemed to focus so much on his work.
    If you're a true architecture buff this book is definitely for you. Otherwise you might want to look for another book on FLW's life.
