    Overall

    Although I truly enjoyed the film (with the same title) it is the worst adaption of a book I have ever seen. Now I say this after watching the movie about a dozen or more times and not having read "heard" the book. If you enjoy movies and seek out the book versions like I do, this book will BLOW your mind!!!!!! This book is beyond the common trimuph over of adversity. Please take the time to enjoy this novel. It is even worth not waiting for credits to become aviable before you add it to your library.

    Story
    What did you like best about Rise Again? What did you like least?

    The Story was fast paced and had amazing potential..... But the narrator drove me away :(


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I am sorry but I could not make it that far.....


    What didn’t you like about Kirsten Potter’s performance?

    poor at best; like other female narrators her attempts of voice differential was below sub-par. Had someone like Mr. Brick been chosen I most likely would not have only finished the novel but would have listened multiple times & would have given it a much higher rating.


    Could you see Rise Again being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no.....


    Any additional comments?

    I was able to make it over half the way through War & Peace roughly 43 and change hours of it before I have up. I could not make it past 4hours and 44min due to the narrator. I am truly bummed!

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals - until the extraordinary day when a whale lifts its tail into the air to display a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite Me.

    This would have been a good novel if it were not trasded by the Tree hugging end.

    All By My Selves is comedy superstar Jeff Dunham's story as told by Jeff himself! This unique comedic audio release takes fans behind the curtain to explain how he turned a tired, vaudevillian art form into something truly modern and hip. Not only will Jeff reveal how he developed his act and lovable characters over the years, he'll also share the details of his life as working comedian and family man on the road.

    Michelle says: "Completely Enjoyable"
    "All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and Me"
    Overall

    This is an enjoyable novel about Jeff's life & all the interesting happenings during it. The novel also takes you through the creation of his "little guys". Since it is red bu Jeff he deffently adds his personal touch & of course the guys add their two cents each along the way. This book is a good listen for the whole family.

    Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life-saving transplant organs for a nominal fee...and imagine what a company would do to get a monopoly on that technology.

    Dawn M. Hongo says: "Scott Sigler is Crazy"

    Overall

    This novel starts off rather slow as you are introduced to one of the main characters is going through a psychotic episode; only to find herself as an iatrical part of a research team. I have listened to the other two titles available by Scott Sigler and found that this novel was more sedate in comparison the pace was ¾ of the others. Over all I did enjoy this novel as well; it is filled with intrigue and kept me interested.

    Talibanic enforcers burning books? The Supreme Court deciding that sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state"? The Hollywood Left embracing polygamy? If you think these things can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious and provocative columnist Mark Steyn shows to devastating effect in this, his first book on American and global politics.

    It is about time someone compaired the world to the muslim world. I understand that not ALL muslims are terrorist. However, you do not see the throngs of outcry when one of the psychos goes off either. Until I see thoes throngs of outcry I cannot & will not beleave islam is a religon of love & peace. The western worlds need for a PC life will be its downfall.

    This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

    J. Johnston says: "Great Book, Somewhat Misleading Title"
    "If only......"
    Overall

    I wish I had instructors as lucid & brave as Prof. Sowell. His ability to bring hot button subjects to a level of discourse never brought before is unequaled.

    Thomas Sowell takes a tough, factual look at whether the civil rights movement has lived up to its hopes or its rhetoric. In the decades since the historic Supreme Court decision on desegregation, who has gained and who has lost? Which of the assumptions behind the civil rights revolution have stood the test of time, and which have proven to be mistaken or even catastrophic to those who were supposed to be helped?

    Corey says: "You will not learn this in school......."
    "You will not learn this in school......."
    Overall

    That statement is not true if Prof. Sowell is your instructor. This is a novel that really gets one to think. One must really listen to what is said & not. This novel is written with love & pain. Many will knock this novel and refuse to listen; please do not be one of them.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Uncle O's Best work"
    Overall

    Even if you only like sci-fi a bit this title is a must listen. A great beginning; to arguably the best series. Even though the topic is about children this story is for all ages.

    Based on a a novella from Different Seasons, this unabridged tale focuses on a man convicted of murder, who finds himself in a prison ruled by a sadistic warden and secretly operated by a clever convict.

    Eric says: "This makes the movie better"
    "Thank Goodness there is a movie"
    Overall

    I have been waiting for this book to come out on audio. However, I found the story lacking. The narrator rambles on & on; not to mention a need to jump around, which causes the tempo to move along as if it suffers from tremors.
