  • Escape from Camp 14: One Man’s Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Blaine Harden
    • Narrated By Blaine Harden

    North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. It is also armed with nuclear weapons. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped - but Shin Dong-hyuk did.

    Amanda says: "Worthwhile, but difficult on many levels."
    "A Story that needs to be told"
    Would you listen to Escape from Camp 14 again? Why?

    I highly recommend this book to anyone.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it not. This book has too much raw emotion and I could not handle it all in one sitting

    Any additional comments?

    Something needs to be done about the repressive government in North Korea. How can we just sit on their hands and do nothing about it. We have been hearing stories for some time now about conditions in North Korea. If we continue to do nothing it will be like ignoring the stories that were coming out of Nazi occupied Europe during WWII of the extermination camps. History will judge us on how we responded to this tyranny How will that story be told, will it be one that we are proud of, or will we be so ashamed of our inaction?

  • Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By Bill O'Reilly, Martin Dugard
    • Narrated By Bill O'Reilly
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Daniel says: "History Made Interesting"
    "Best O'Reilly so far!!!"
    Would you listen to Killing Lincoln again? Why?

    Yes, I debated getting this book for some time. I have listen to many Lincoln books and did not think that this would add anything new. I am a big O'Reilly fan, but was hesitant to get this one. Was I wrong, this is his best book so far.

    What does Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way that Bill O'Reilly makes the story almost like a novel, he brings it alive. I could not stop listening to it.

  • Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Mark R. Levin
    • Narrated By Adam Grupper, Mark R. Levin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    #1 New York Times best-selling author Mark Levin explores the philosophical basis of America's foundations and the crisis that faces government today.

    Virginia says: "Man's basic nature : Liberty"
    "A must listen to!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Ameritopia the most enjoyable?

    Having read most of the political philosophers in College, this book condensed all those major works into easy to understand bites.
    One can easily see the path that this country is on and what the ultimate result will be.
    I feel that the author respects his audience and is not being preachy, He lets the audience come to their own conclusions.
    Mr. Levine has exposed the basis of today's liberal administration. How the over regulation of our lives is an attack on our liberties.

    What did you like best about this story?

    This book did not go into the typical name calling or blame of current administration. What the author does it let one discover what is really going on without going into partisan rhetoric.

    Any additional comments?

    I have been a member of since 2006, this is my first review. This book made such an impact on me that I felt that I had to write about it.
