    Story

    Before smartphones, back even before the Internet and personal computer, a misfit group of technophiles, blind teenagers, hippies, and outlaws figured out how to hack the world’s largest machine: the telephone system. Starting with Alexander Graham Bell’s revolutionary "harmonic telegraph", by the middle of the 20th century the phone system had grown into something extraordinary, a web of cutting-edge switching machines and human operators that linked together millions of people like never before. But the network had a billion-dollar flaw, and once people discovered it, things would never be the same.

    What made the experience of listening to Exploding the Phone the most enjoyable?

    The Narration provided by Johan North, himself a former phone freek, brings a passion and personal knowledge to the subject that no other narrator could possbily bring!!!


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

    There was no particular moment in the book which I found moving, but, the entire story just grabs you right from the beginning.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is well worth your time to read. I cannot recommend it enough.

    By the age of four, Rory Hoffman was the official drummer for his family's band. A year later, he played on his first record album. This is the story of how this multi-instrumentalist Nashville studio musician and performer, as well as a two-time winner of the ICMA Musician of the Year award, learned to not just live - but thrive - without sight, in a world full of adventure and opportunity.

    What made the experience of listening to Rory's Story the most enjoyable?

    The purservierence of the Offman Family through the difficult times they had to go through and their trust in God


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rory. I have an idea that absolutely nothing could bother him at all


    Which character ??? as performed by Josh Kilbourne ??? was your favorite?

    Did reasonably well with all; but frankly, a female narrator would have been a better choice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I'd keep the title of the book as originally written


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly, if you want a book which will inspire you to trust in God absolutely, this is the one for you. This book will leave you feeling like your spiritual batteries are fully charged again. Very soon after starting, you completely forget that you are reading a book; and, you actually experience the emotions of all the characters in the book.

    Meet Lord Peter Wimsey, stylish, eccentric, seeming a fool, but in fact one of the great English detectives. The discovery of a body in a bathtub wearing only a pair of spectacles launches a motley set of sleuths and suspects toward a ghastly conclusion.

    Sarah says: "Great story; not so great narrator"

    What did you love best about Whose Body??

    The narration of this story realy comes to life with the way in which Roe Kendel handles the many characters in the tale


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lord Peter Wimsey. Almost nothing bothers him and he, in his exentric way, manages to solve what looks like a double mystery but turns out to be really one.


    What about Roe Kendall???s performance did you like?

    She handled the narration of the book in such a way that you quickly forget you're listening to a narration and get pulled in to the story.


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

    The way in which Bunter responds to a sudden nervous attack which Lord Peter suffers while staying up too late; Just at the moment when he realizes who the murderor is.


    Any additional comments?

    Although the audio quality of this recording is perhaps a little fuzzy, this fact quickly fades in to the background when you really begin to loose yourself in the story. This happens quite quickly.
