  • The Art of Mingling: Proven Techniques for Mastering Any Room

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Jeanne Martinet
    • Narrated By Jeanne Martinet

    Does the idea of going to a large party make your palms sweat and your mouth go dry? You are not alone. Many people suffer from minglephobia, a secret terror of large parties. Jeanne Martinet's tried-and-true cure is her unique system of techniques and strategies for overcoming social fears. Now you can relax and thrive at any business or social event!

    Chris says: "Very helpful for the mildly shy."
    "Ends Justifies the Means"

    I do not enjoy listening to anyone who's attitude is that of I'm here to have fun, don't get in my way!
    This is how the book comes across to me:
    I am at this party to have fun.
    I will do what it takes to enjoy myself and avoid those of you I find boring whether that be to lie, hide from you or anything else.

    Plus, I just didn't find the time spent listening to this book as productive.

  • Nightwing

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 18 mins)
    • By Martin Cruz Smith
    • Narrated By Richard Ferrone

    A community in the southwestern United States falls prey to a plague of vampire bats with a virus which compels them to feed on everything in their path. Martin Cruz Smith, author of the best-selling novels, Gorky Park and Polar Star, mixes Indian mythology with virology in this masterful thriller.

    S. Burrows says: "Excellent book."
    "Did not enjoy the pace of narration."

    the narrator preferred lots of pausing during character dialog moments. I found the pace awkward and distracting.

  • The 5th Horseman: The Women's Murder Club

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By James Patterson
    • Narrated By Carolyn McCormack
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse. Accompanied by the newest member of the Women's Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer probes deeper into the incidents. Could these cases just be appalling coincidences? Or is a maniac playing God with people's lives? When someone close to the Women's Murder Club begins to exhibit the same frightening symptoms, Lindsay fears no one is safe.

    Amazon Customer says: "Meh"
    "Series getting old"

    I've listened to several in this series. The 'murder club' stories are too predictable.

  • The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Francis S. Collins
    • Narrated By Francis S. Collins

    Dr. Francis Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, is one of the world's leading scientists, yet he is also a man of unshakable faith in God and scripture. Dr. Collins has resolved the dilemma that haunts everyone who believes in God and respects science. Faith in God and faith in science can be harmonious, not separately but together, combined into one worldview. For Collins, science does not conflict with the Bible, science enhances it.

    Stephen says: "For those on the fence"
    "Printed format would be a better choice"

    As a believer and someone with a solid grounding in science this was something I highly anticipated.

    This one is worth two listens for me. A lot of the subject matter needs more contemplation than the timing of an audio book allows. I would have preferred to have this book in print so that it would be easier to stop, re-read a area and think about it further.

    The content was wonderful - I just don't think it was a good fit for the audio book format.

  • The Artifact

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Patrick Astre
    • Narrated By Patrick Cullen

    Deep within a heavily guarded compound of the Brookhaven National Laboratory lies the nation's most protected secret: an active alien artifact. Estimated at several millions of years old, impervious to all efforts to penetrate its secrets, the artifact taunts researchers with bursts of mysterious radiation that may be efforts at communication.

    Richard A. Bamberg says: "Mystery of the Year?"

    This storyline was too predictable. I expected a meshing of 'alien sci-fi' with computer hacking. Both were pretty lame and expected.
