    When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club - a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following.

    Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. A senior in high school, he's still secretly preoccupied with a series of fantasy novels he read as a child, set in a magical land called Fillory. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the craft of modern sorcery.

    This book was such a bore fest, I have never checked my mp3 player so much to see how much longer it was. I actually had to pull over to take a nap on more than one occassion.
    The only thing that kept me going was that Mark is a good reader and enjoyable to listen to, I was going to put this book down and return it to get something else but I saw that this book was part of a series and the other books have better reviews.

    So I decided to finish it, the overall story isn't terrible it's that there is so much world and character building that it gets boring to listen to, I'm going to give book 2 a chance to see where the story is going.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    I don't listen to a lot of books with female readers but Johanna Parker has been enjoyable and entertaining, I just don't care much for how she does Sam's voice it makes him sound dimwitted.

    I got all 13 books when they were on sale, and just started listening to them so I can finish book 13 before the final season starts. If you're current on TrueBlood the hbo series to simply put it this is a different story which you'll find out quickly in book 2 which threw me into a loop, Overall this is a good series to get into just don't expect things to be the same as the show.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    I listened to The Art of Racing in the Rain in 1 day this one kept me on the brink of tears through the whole ride, I've gone through books in the past that made me feel emotional but just at parts, but Art of Racing is 7 hours of it non stop. This is a must listen.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Story

    It's Matterhorn.

    Tired of always hearing, reading and seeing the american hippy anti war stuff,
    I wanted to know more about the Vietnam war, it's not something that was ever talked about
    in school. The people I knew that had served in that war would never talk about it.

    When I was a teen I was at my grandparents house and a huey military chopper was flying over head my Grandfather pointed up at it and said "I was a gunner on one of those helicopters, during vietnam" A few years latter when gun laws changed he pulled out his M4
    Garand to clean it and found a somewhere to sell it, as it was no longer legal for him to have it. He was always a quiet man, said very little.

    A few years back I met another Vietnam vet, I found out that they started out using the M4 Garand at the start of the war and switched to the M 16 that we know and use today. The M 16 that was originally issued someone in the military decided to have the bolts painted black
    to save costs the specs called for the bolts to be chromed. Some of the Marines kept thier
    M4's along with the newly issued M16. This person that I met along with some of his platoon
    kept their M4's and carried the M16 the bolts on this M16 were good for jamming and being difficult to fix. This person I spoke to lost most of his platoon due to this, the only people that were able to fight back had the M4's with them.

    I have to say that Matterhorn has helped me understand my Grandfathers silence, and why some of these vet's are the way they are.

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    Story

    The only thing I didn't like about this story is that by the end of chapter 2 you understand the madness of the main character, and it just ends... Leaving you with the feeling that a dozen or so chapters are missing.

    I had to come back to audible to make sure I got the entire story, I'm hoping that this was meant to be a sample to a larger story or there's going to be a series.

    This is an exclusive, original adventure for the 10th Doctor, read by David Tennant. Featuring additional music and effects, Doctor Who: Dead Air has never been previously published. Hot on the heels of a creature that exists through sound, the Doctor lands on a pirate radio station boat in the late 1960s. The creature has already killed some of the DJs, and the Doctor befriends the survivors. But then the lights go out, and a desperate race for survival begins.

    Would you listen to Doctor Who again? Why?

    I'm a big fan of the tv series, and don't always have the time to watch, and figured I'd give an audio book a try. I've gotta say for the first audio I tried Dead Air could not be presented in any other form this one was written to be listened to.
