    Willy Patrick, the author of the Caldecott-winning young-adult novel In the Night Room, thinks she is losing her mind again. Two weeks before her second marriage, on her way home one day, Willy is drawn into the parking lot of a warehouse. Knowing that her daughter, Holly, is being held in that building, she wants to rescue her. But what she knows is impossible, for her daughter is dead.

    I almost didn't get this book because of the review I read. I am not quite certain what his problem was but I found this book rather good and entertaining. The first 45 minutes to an hour, one had to follow closly but all came clear and became more and more engrossing.
    I am happy that I relied upon past experience with this author and not the listener review.

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    What made the experience of listening to Theft of Swords the most enjoyable?

    Well written and performed...went directly to the second book

    I'm pretty picky since I've been listening to books for 27 years..this series look to be a good one

    Would you listen to Equal Rites again? Why?

    good story and good narration. Something technical was wrong as the volume kept changing. Will get the next book.

    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    Flatlander says: "Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle at Their Best"

    Overall

    I 100% agree with the the other review. The reader's attempt at the alien names was distracting and annoying. I really didn't find a character I cared much about and by the end I was just hanging on to see if the human's won

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Ron says: "Good McMurtry, not great"
    "Where's the plot"
    Overall

    Annie Potts is a very good reader. I love Lonesome Dove. But i must say this is weak. There is no plot and just ambling around the old west meeting every famous person. Nothing really happens. I suppose it may be enough to have penned Lonesome Dove, one of my all time favorite books but if you're not going to try to wright something close to that PLEASE STOP.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Overall

    The narrator is terrific. The book starts out well. But it is not what it seems. I thought that it was to be an adventure that would also have insights into the 1700's in Scotland. After part one, it became a flat out romance novel with romantic interplay between the two main characters going on and on and on. Put another way, guys beware, this is a literary 100% chick flick. By late in part three I found myself very tired of the romance and pining for more plot, and then just wishing that it would be over.
