    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    The Bin Laden event sounded so simple and clear cut. Read the book. Amazing, scary, insightful and - as though I didn't respect SEALS enough already - that respect has multiplied exponentially.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Story

    I have no idea how this book got any stars from anyone. Stupid premise along with over the top, hoakie drama, this writing lacks any believability or credibility. I can't knock Loreli King's performance - but she really doesn't have anything to work with! I paid $4.95 for this book & want $20.00 refunded to me for the aggravation of listening to this junk. Don't waste your time or money on this loser!

    Joe Trona is scarred in more ways than one. Rescued from an orphanage by Will Trona, a charismatic Orange County politician who sensed his dark potential, Joe is swept into the maelstrom of power and intimidation that surrounds his adoptive father's illustrious career. Serving as Will's right hand man, Joe is trained to protect and defend his father's territory - but he can't save the powerful man from his enemies.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book - from the development of the character to the twisted story line. I found Joe to be a particularly likeable central character - who gained your sympathy without being pathetic, and the different and difficult story line. Read it! You'll enjoy it.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    Joan says: "Been there read that!"
    "Best Evanovich"
    Overall

    Great story line and unfolding plot - fun, funny, easy listening - I think this is the best Stephanie Plum book in a long time. Her crazy relationships are pushed to new limits, her ability to find trouble is bigger and better than ever and overall - I found it to be a very delightful book.

    Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home. Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too - and he's certain he's on the right trail. Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in.

    Bob says: "Compelling and difficult to put down"
    "Intense - on the edge of your seat...."
    Overall

    Great book that catches your interest from the second paragraph through to the end - which is a huge surprise by itself. My only complaint is that my maiden name is Haller and hearing the pronunciation is like chalk on a blackboard. Other than that - I absolutely loved it. I listened to the last chapters several times - amazed at the twists that I didn't see coming. Highly recommend this book to anyone who likes good intrigue and really knows how to pronounce HALLER.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Fabulous - spell-binding"
    Overall

    High energy, intense plot, great story. I was spellbound by this book. The story is cleverly crafted; as the story unfolds, you see how the pieces fit together - but still the end is amazing. There are points in the dialogue that are stunning - I listened again and again. Larsson is brilliant - making it all the more sad in his loss. He was an incredible writer.

    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!"
    "Amazing, fascinating, important history"
    Overall

    As a child of the 1960's, I knew, on some level, that people lived like this. Listening to this book brought forth questions, ire, sorrow and a joy that - for most people, we have evolved beyond this. Well read, solid, and so interesting that I stayed up to the wee hours of the night to listen. Excellent book.

    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Maxine Fuentes says: "Wonderful"
    "Fabulous"

    I have 2,000 characters in which to describe this book. I will do it in 9 characters and one word. FABULOUS!
