    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    Overall

    I have listened to over 300 audio books from Audiable and this was the best by far. I was expecting a dry and black and white history lesson. But to my surprise the author brought the whole time period to life. Many of my questions about World War two were answered. I have never written a review before. But this book really was really worth it. I highly recommend it even if you don???t care for history.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Too much hype"
    Overall

    This is a perfect example of a book that was way over hyped. I liked the book, but remember this is a childrens book. There was no action and no violence. There was no real science fiction. The author could have made it more believable if the character of Ender was older. Mankind will never have a child command armies into battle. I could have rated it 3 stars, but I wanted to offset the 5 star rating other listens have gave it. This book was ok thats it.
