    Story

    Warren St. John decided to find out why people care so much about the outcomes of games they're not playing in by joining a group where the particulars of the fan psyche would show themselves in sharp relief: the caravan of hundreds of RVs that follow the Alabama Crimson Tide across the South, taking over college towns with a moveable feast of Weber grills, karaoke machines, Igloo coolers, and fast-draining liquor bottles.

    James says: "Well done"
    "Don't miss it!"
    Overall

    Marvelously funny and absolutely true to life. One of the most enjoyable books I've listened to. I'm making a bore of myself repeating some of the funnier passages at lunches and dinners.

  • Gone for Good

    Story
    (203)

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Ed says: "Excellent twists and turns"
    "What an Audiobook should be!"
    Overall

    This is about as exciting and mysterious as possible, and it is read by a master.

    Can't wait for the next unabridged Coben.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Bill Bryson

    Story

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Outstanding. Smart and funny!"
    Overall

    Bryson is a fine writer and this is among his best. Not only does he inform you wonderfully on all sorts of topics, notorious and arcane, but he does it in a manner as entertaining as it is learned.

    What a joy!
