  • Seabiscuit: An American Legend

    Laura Hillenbrand beautifully renders this breathtaking saga of one horse's journey from also-ran to national luminary. Seabiscuit: An American Legend is an inspiring tale of unlikely heroes, a classic story of three embattled individuals overcoming the odds in the Great Depression.

    I haven't read the book because I was waiting for the Audio Book, but now that I see it is abridged I will wait for a non-abridged edition. My wife read the book and it was one of her favorites of all time, so I guess if I can't LISTEN to the whole book I will have to READ it. I agree with the reviewer that said the book lost a lot in it's present audible version. That's why I make it a point not to order abridged books. If authors wanted their material cut in half they would have written half.

  • Jolie Blon's Bounce

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 23 mins)

    Return to James Lee Burke's "timeless, parallel universe" with detective Dave Robicheaux, as he investigates the murders of two women, tries to prove one man's innocence, and faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. Gothic, dense, brutal, touching, and always compelling, Jolie Blon's Bounce is classic storytelling from a writer who has been dubbed "the Faulkner of crime fiction."

    Overall

    I love the Audible service. It turns driving time into enjoyable time every time. I called customer service to complain about the narrator of this book and of course Audible has no responsibility for the person the publisher chooses as the reader. The sales rep on the phone pointed out to me that the member can always hear an excerpt from the book before purchasing. To be honest I never noticed that little button on the page, but now I listen to the narrator every time BEFORE I purchase a book.
