  • Silhouette in Scarlet: The Third Vicky Bliss Mystery

    Vicky Bliss is a Doctor of Art History who happens to be statuesque and beautiful. But her job at the National Museum in Munich is not enough to keep this intrepid academician entertained. It takes the thrill of an ancient mystery or dangerous romantic adventure to keep Vicky on her toes.

    Edmund says: "Not the best of the set"
    "Classic Peters"
    Overall

    Love Elizabeth Peters writing style with such great characters and dialogue. Rosenblat is an amazing narrator

  • In Cold Blood

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s a story that most people know, told here in an unforgettable way – an audio masterpiece that rivals the best thrillers, thanks to Capote genre-defining words and Brick’s subtle but powerful characterizations. On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues.

    Lisa says: "Still the Best"
    "True story told well"
    Overall

    Crazy true story, but a little slow at times. Had to keep listening to find out what really happened.

  • Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"
    "Couldn't keep my attention"
    Overall

    Interesting story about Vietnam, but just couldn't keep my attention. Not sure if it was the narrator who was very monotone or just the slow storyline. Maybe both. Car ride material maybe, but not while running, cleaning or cooking.

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Story
    (4498)

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Louis says: "Loved it and learned alot."
    "Waiting for conclusion"
    Overall

    Waiting for the second and third installations. Like others have written - ends rather suddenly without much resolution.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Good Story Good Performance"
    Overall

    I usually don't take time to review books, but I since I often use the reviews to help me decide on books I thought I would take the time for this one. I kept seeing it in the stores and on the audible website wondering what was making it so popular as it personally doesn't sound all that intriguing. Not only is it a well written and endearing story, but it is a perfect audiobook. The three main characters are casted so well and bring out the southern culture as I never would have experienced just reading it. Fantastic audiobook.
