    In October 1886, Edgar Drake receives a strange request from the British War office: he must leave his wife and his quiet life in London to travel to the jungles of Burma, where a rare Erard grand piano is in need of repair. On his journey to Burma, Edgar encounters prophets and thieves, soldiers and tale-spinners, and an enchanting woman as elusive as the surgeon-major who owns the piano will turn out to be. Edgar encounters a place more mysterious and dangerous than he could ever have imagined.

    Overall

    This is a real tale that takes you through Jungles, full of interesting characters and twisting plots with interesting cultural information. I would have to say I savored this one like a good piece of cake. When it was over I was looking for more titles by this author. Enjoy!

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Absolutely Riveting!!!"
    Overall

    Firstly, I am a big fan of Hero Stories and people who against all odds prevail. Herein this book is a full encompassing story that if not true would not be believed. Struggle, triumph, despair and reserved joy are all words I would describe this book with.
    I found myself listening at work, in the car and then at home. I was on the internet looking for pictures of the people, places, planes war criminals ect. I felt so proud to be an American and a humane being after this experience. I loved it and I highly recommend you give this one a try.

    Even in Empire City, a town where weird science is the hope for tomorrow, it's hard for a robot to make his way. It's even harder for a robot named Mack Megaton, a hulking machine designed to bring mankind to its knees. But Mack's not interested in world domination. He's just a bot trying to get by, trying to demonstrate that he isn't just an automated smashing machine, and to earn his citizenship in the process. It should be as easy as crushing a tank for Mack, but some bots just cant catch a break.

    Overall

    Fun, light and a quick read. This was a very enjoyable experience with a romance full of twists and turns coupled with a wonderful futuristic setting. This was my first Lee Martinez book and I will be checking him out soon.

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    I listened to this book with a smile, a frown and the feel of real agony. The who range of emotion was made available to me and what a wonderful experience it was. Bill has the ability to use his extensive vocabulary to keep you smiling while the whole time dazzling you with facts, figures and interesting stories.

    You'll love this one.

    Enjoy!

    The characters in this book are so real, so believable. I have just finished this book and let me tell you I am a devoted television watcher and I have not seen a show all week. I have been listening to this book for days now and I feel like have been on the adventure of a lifetime.

    I found this story so intense and captivating I was dreaming about this story and talking with my friends about it. What a great amount of history that is shared in this book, I learned so much!

    This book is a must read and so is the Lions Game! Enjoy!

    In 1991, acting on a tip from a local fisherman, two scuba divers discovered a sunken German U-boat, complete with its crew of 60 men, not too far off the New Jersey coast. The divers, realizing the momentousness of their discovery, began probing the mystery. Over the next six years, they became expert and well-traveled researchers, taught themselves German, hunted for clues in Germany, and constructed theories corrective of the history books, all in an effort to identify this sunken U-boat and its crew.

    Overall

    When I got this audio book I had no idea that my next week was going to be one of wishing work was over so I could get in the car and get back into the adventure. I appreciate so much more what this book is about and how many people are affected by the findings of these divers not to mention the way they live their lives, all out!. Lastly, this book leaves your totally satisfied as all questions are answered and you feel satisfied like after a seven course meal. Highly recommended!

    This is just a wild ride. It starts out quickly and smartly and as soon as you think you have it figured out it turns and twists just the way we all love.
    I like the ending in this book, it's comlete and not hollow.
    Great, Great Book!
