  • The English Patient

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 27 mins)

    Story

    With ravishing beauty and unsettling intelligence, Michael Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an Italian villa at the end of World War II. Hana, the exhausted nurse; the maimed thief, Caravaggio; the wary sapper, Kip: each is haunted by the riddle of the English patient, the nameless, burned man who lies in an upstairs room and whose memories of passion, betrayal, and rescue illuminates this audiobook like flashes of heat lightening.

    "Very different from the film..."
    Overall

    but, in a good way. The prose is commendable and the narrator kept me engaged. So if you are repelled from this book for having seen the film already, don't be.

    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    "I think I know where this is going..."
    Overall

    A good read, but not as captivating as the first in the series. I am intrigued to finish the trilogy and to discover if the story continues on its trajectory. Note - thanks to Carolyn McCormick for dropping that baby voice she used when speaking for Katness in the first book. She's a teenager, not a toddler.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    "Wonderful Narrator"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book and I was especially pleased to discover the voice of Lou Diamond Philips. I was skeptical going in, but Lou did a smashing job and I would now consider him amongst my top 3 Audible narrators. This book is worth a listen for this reason alone, but I will also add that as a first time Clancy reader, you don't need to know the back story to enjoy this one. Story is contemporary and characters are dimensional. I recommend this one.

  • Daemon

    Story
    (4423)

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Really Fast Paced Sci Fi!"
    "Good, until the end"
    Overall

    I had a hard time getting used to the mechanical style of the narrator at first, but his voice and style soon won me over. I work in tech and was really impressed with the author's research and vision for technologies potential for evil. l don't want to print a spoiler, so all I will say is that I enjoyed the ride, but was left unfulfilled in the end.
