    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Hoping I missed something"
    Overall

    I hope that I missed something here because I just don't get how this book would be entertaining. I was bored, depressed and couldn't get myself interested. Missed me.

  • The Clockwork Universe: Isaac Newton, The Royal Society, and the Birth of the Modern World

    The Clockwork Universe is the story of a band of men who lived in a world of dirt and disease but pictured a universe that ran like a perfect machine. A meld of history and science, this book is a group portrait of some of the greatest minds who ever lived as they wrestled with natures most sweeping mysteries. The answers they uncovered still hold the key to how we understand the world.

    Alison says: "The Royal Society comes alive."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think that this book is so education and mind opening. It's fantastic. I learned a lot but was also interested as I went. I feel like I got nuggets of history that I wouldn't have gotten any other way.


    What about Alan Sklar’s performance did you like?

    Yes he was great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the facts and data and the way it was delivered.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Whew, what a story. The memory of it will be with me for a long time. It was definitely very good material!

    Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murder. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

    This was a damn good book. I really like Connelly. Definitely wasn't my favorite of all time, but it was a very good listen.

    Story

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "JUST ROCKS"
    Overall

    This book is awesome. Wow, couldn't event press the pause button. I just couldn't do it people. I just couldn't do it.
