    The setting is Hong Kong, 1963. The action spans scarcely more than a week, but these are the days of high adventure, from kidnapping and murder to financial double-dealing and natural catastrophes: fire, flood, and landslide. Yet they are days filled as well with all the mystery and romance of Hong Kong, the heart of Asia, rich in every trade: money, flesh, opium, power.

    Lily says: "Great story, great narrator"
    "Great listen"
    Overall

    In the tradition of shogun, this a superb book that I really enjoyed and could not wait to go through. It has all possible elements of a good book, intrigue, deceit, great charcters, really amazing description of asia and a compelling story. This is a really long book to listen to but I enjoyed every moment of it.

    This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

    Leslie says: "Amazing Novel, Excellent Narration"
    "A Great Roller Coaster Ride Of A Book"
    Overall

    I love this book. It grabbed me from the start. This book made you love and hate every character in it. My only complaint from the book was that it was little too long towards the end, other than that an exciting listen.

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"

    Overall

    I truly enjoyed this book and loved every minute of it.
    I highly recommend it.
    The similarities between the authors father and my father are uncanny.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Good Listen"
    Overall

    I had high expectations of this book because of the previous title by the author, and this did not live up to the expectations. This was a good listen all through and had me paying attention, but the end was disappointing and that is what disappointed me.

    Throughout history - from the bone-crushing age of antiquity to the sack-tearing modern era - there have been larger-than-life ass-kickers with a natural talent for unleashing their epic bloodlust on anyone who crossed them. They built empires, smashed armies, and ravaged civilizations for wealth, glory, and ultimate supremacy. Sometimes villains, sometimes heroes, sometimes criminally insane, they had one thing in common: They were all Badass!

    Scott says: "The name says it all"
    "decent listen but nothing special"
    Overall

    This book is an interesting listen, I learned some new things. It is not the best book you will ever read but it is a fun and easy listen.

    In Tripwire, Reacher is settling into lazy Key West when his life is interrupted by a stranger who comes looking for him. When the stranger turns up beaten to death in the Old Town cemetery - fingertips removed - Reacher knows whomever the man was working for is not a friend.

    Mark says: "OK...but..."
    "An Ok Book"
    Overall

    I did not mind listening to the book but this was nothing that had me really wanting more. It was almost too much like a B class action flick, with almost superhuman heros and crazy scary looking villians.

  • I Am America (And So Can You!)

    Story

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Ty says: "Funny, but disappointing."
    "Colbert at his best"
    Overall

    This book is typical Colbert style laugh out loud funny. I listened to it on the train and I am sure people around me thought I was crazy for just laughing to my self.

    This book is a typical Clancy book. And any Clancy fan will enjoy this.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Judith says: "Couldn't Take My Buds Out"
    "Great Work By Follet"
    Overall

    I loved this book and it got me to listen to the world without end, also a great isten. I really enjoyed the way the author set the scenes I felt as if I was watching the events rather than listening to them. This is a must listen. I had heard a lot about the book and was not disappointed.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "A Must Read For Fiction Lovers"
    Overall

    this book had me at the "edge of my seat" from the start and I found my self cheering for and against the characters. I highly recommended this book.
