    November 1958, New York. Into the rarefied atmosphere of wealth and tradition at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden comes the most unlikely of horses—a drab white former plow horse named Snowman—and his rider, Harry de Leyer. They were the longest of all longshots—and their win was the stuff of legend.

    Story

    This is a story for all animal lovers and all Americans. It is the story of the underdog - the American 'rags to riches' dream, all told in an eloquent, inspiring tone. The narrator wasn't the greatest, but he improved throughout the story and there was nothing irritating about his style. Unlike other reviewers, I loved the American history lesson that went along with horse story. It added depth and meaning to the story. Even if you don't care for horses, or don't know much about them, this story will make you a horse lover, or at the very least develop compassion for animals. It will inspire you to be a better person. As an avid, this is in the top five books I have read in the last 2 years!

    From one of the most admired and beloved couples in recent American history, an extraordinarily moving story of public service, risk-taking, romance - and the journey toward recovery. This book delivers hope and redemption in the face of the tragic shooting, and introduces two unforgettable heroes.

    Story

    Given this book was written hastily due to the contemporary nature of it, this was a great read! The narrator's voice was a bit sing-songy, but knowing he is an astronaut telling his own story and not a professional narrator, it was no problem. Besides, the emotion of the story easily overcomes any shortcomings the narrator might have. In trying to find adjectives for this book, I can only keep coming up with one - INSPIRATIONAL! GO GABBY! GO MARK!

    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!"
    "Fabulous Read!"
    Overall

    This is the best narrated book I have ever heard and an absolutely riveting story! I can't wait for Kathryn Stockett to write her next book. The story unfolds in a most entertaining and thought provoking way and is interesting on many levels. This is an absolute MUST read/listen! It will no doubt be a best seller for months or years.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

    This is the only gift I have received from a large corporation. What a wonderful gesture in this day and age of impersonal companies. I am recommending audible.com to all my friends and family that enjoy books!
