  • Stealing Shadows

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Kay Hooper
    • Narrated By Cristine McMurdo-Wallis
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    From best-selling author Kay Hooper comes a thrilling tale with a paranormal bent and a touch of romance. Cassie Neill has a powerful but troubling gift. She can see inside the minds of serial killers as they are planning their crimes. Tormented by her ability, she takes refuge in a secluded North Carolina town. But there’s no escaping her visions, and when a body surfaces just where she predicted, Cassie is suddenly a suspect.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like stories about psychics or paranormal stuff, you would probably like this. I had picked up a book by Kay Hooper one summer as a beach read. While I likes it, I felt like I was missing too much back story, so I decided to start with the first novel, Stealing Shadows. While the first novel in a series, it is a stand-alone story that does not leave the reader / listener thinking that a sequel is required to finish the story. I liked that.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stealing Shadows?

    Nothing really comes to mind.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    For me, the narrator definitely distracted from the book. While she did a good job with the voices, the microphone was too close to her mouth so I could hear her breath intakes and lips smacking. Very annoying.

    Did Stealing Shadows inspire you to do anything?

  • Temple of the Winds: Sword of Truth, Book 4

    • UNABRIDGED (28 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Terry Goodkind
    • Narrated By Dick Hill

    The dangerous, fanatical Imperial Order, under the leadership of the power-mad Emperor Jagang and his multitude of demonic underlings, unleashes a deadly plague. To find a cure, Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan Amnell must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a fortress of evil sealed away for three thousand years. But the path of the Seeker of Truth is never an easy one - even if he can reach the Temple at all, there is no guarantee he'll ever return.

    Danielle says: "Good book, poor narration"
    "Poor Narration"
    Where does Temple of the Winds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Four books, four different narrators. The first three narrators, while bring their own style to the story, at least got the names right. Dick Hill doesn't pronounce Kahlan's the same as the three other narrators. This is probably the result of bad direction instead of the narrator's skill, but I wish he had taken the time to listen to prior work before accepting this job.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story was ok. It dragged along in a few places and was sometimes predictable.

    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    He was inconsistent in how he pronounced the character's names.

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

    Sword of Truth - direct to video.

  • Raising Atlantis

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By Thomas Greanias
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    A secret U.S. military dig has uncovered ancient ruins two miles beneath the ice of Antarctica and activated the ultimate weapon. Now rogue American archaeologist Conrad Yeats and beautiful Vatican linguist Serena Serghetti must team up to unlock the secret origins of human civilization before a global cataclysm ends it.

    Autumn says: "Stargate+Da Vinci Cod= Raising Atlantis"
    "I was entertained"

    I thought the book was pretty good. While not a literary masterpiece, it was fast moving and kept my interest.

  • One Second After

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By William R. Forstchen
    • Narrated By Joe Barrett
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Sara says: "A terrifying story"
    "Extremely disturbing"

    This book was exceptional and I highly recommend it. It is a quick paced story with interesting characters, and is not heavy-handed about political messages.

  • A History of the Arab Peoples

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 47 mins)
    • By Albert Hourani
    • Narrated By Nadia May

    Despite the turmoil of Arab nationalism and fundamentalism, Middle Eastern wars, and oil crises, the history of the Arab world has been little known and poorly understood in the West. One reason may be that, for more than half a century, there has been no up-to-date single volume work that chronicles the story of Arab civilization - until now.

    Tim says: "Daunting quantity of information!"

    The reader does the best she can with the material, but it is as if she were reading a textbook. As far as the material is concerned, it presumes that the listener will be familiar with places and naming conventions based on a brief disclaimer in the preface. I really wanted to finish this book, but only got about half way through the second part of the three part download before giving up.
