    Story

    Listen as Frank tells in his own inimitable voice his story of how at the age of 19 he traveled from Limerick to New York in pursuit of the American dream. Despite the abundance of unsolicited advice he gets to "join the cops" and "stick to his own kind", Frank knows that he should educate himself and somehow rise above his circumstances.

    Overall

    The previous review by Philip of Ft. Worth Texas shows that the man didn't even read the book. Frank McCourt didn't drown in the bottle. If he did, he wouldn't have been writing the most wonderful memoirs of his life. Frank McCourt rules when it comes to narration. Frank Mccourt can teach us all a thing or two about life. LISTEN TO HIS BOOKS!! There are no better. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

  • The Mummy Case: An Amelia Peabody Mystery

    Story
    (40)

    The irascible husband of Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody demonstrates again why he has been nicknamed "Father of Curses." Denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor, Emerson is awarded instead the "pyramids" of Mazghunah: countless mounds of rubble in the midst of nowhere. Nothing in this barren spot seems worthy of interest - until an antiquities dealer is murdered in his Cairo shop.

    Mary Twain says: "Better versions"
    "Need that same narrator"
    Overall

    I've listened to Book 1 and 2 of the Amelia Peabody series with Susan O'Malley narrating. I have also sampled the narration of Barbara Rosenblat. Rosenblat's cadence turns Amelia into a cold, unsensuous old maid. Her narration lacks the passion of Susan O'Malley's fetching and lively "conversation."

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Audible said thanks and we hope you have enjoyed this program. I thought it was over. There is a part II. NOW, that makes me a happy camper.

    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    Mark says: "Some people are too picky -- This is a must"
    "Edge of your seat thriller..."
    Overall

    I listen to audio books while commuting back and forth to work. The first half of book was good - I like Dan Brown's style of writing - the second half of the book had me white knuckled, talking to the characters - yelling to the characters - and looking forward to my next commute.... Take me away Calgon.... Digital Fortess is next despite negative reviews. I listened to Deception Point despite negative reviews and thoroughly enjoyed it. Give it a try.

  • The Passion of Artemisia

    Story

    Set against the glorious backdrops of Rome, Florence, and Genoa, and Naples, peopled with historical characters and filled with the details of the life of a 17th-century painter, The Passion of Artemisia is the story of Gentileschi's struggle to find love, forgiveness, and wholeness through her art.

    L. Worthington says: "Not exactly a biography"
    "La Dolce Vita!"
    Overall

    As an artist and also a victim of rape, I identified with Artemisia. Her story is endearing and inciteful, unfolding the life of a female artist in the 1600's plus dealing with the struggles of women, whether 400 years ago or today. I recommend this book to those who embrace art and womanhood. The narrator's voice is pure emotion.
    Downside - I hated the ending. It left me wanting more.
