    Deep in the jungles of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is underway - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon. Guiding a US Army is Professor William Race, a young linguist who must translate an ancient manuscript which contains the location of the idol.

    James says: "Indiana Jones action story"
    "Fasted Paced fun Read"
    Overall

    This was one of the first audio-books that I listed to. It was very fast paced not always believable but that is the beauty of fiction. Now one of my favourite authors.

    Before John Glenn orbited the Earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as "human computers" used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets and astronauts into space. Among these problem solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation.

    Story
    What would have made Hidden Figures better?

    This was read in such a dreary way it was so hard to keep listening. The story is more of the hard times for these women than their brilliance. Clever coloured girls that were first given opportunities due to the war. This story could have been wonderful but it needed a big edit. The film on the other hand is brilliant so for once, skip the book.

    Gray Duffy never thought he'd end up as the co-lead guitarist of Oblivion, one of the hottest rock bands in the country. Even better? He's sharing the experience with his best friend, Jazz. Since the day she'd showed up as his family's new foster kid, Gray has protected her. Loved her. And not just platonically either. After all these years of wanting her in his bed, he still doesn't know what it would be like to have her mouth on his.

Nearly falling in love with her on this chance meeting, he learns more about her life through his investigation of her mysterious demise.

    Not quite the epic story of the Bronze Horseman but still a good crime story. I didn't like the male voices used by the narrator they were just annoying. Would love to have more Audio books by this author

    With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife, Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence, with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie's death, along with his kin.

    Story

    I have loved this series but the previous books are desprately in need of a good editor. I am a little sick of the over use of terms like "His long straight nose" It must have been said by claire about 50 times in the other books.
    This story jumps around quite a but but so does the full unabridged Gabaldon books I actually wished there was an abridged version of the next book. I am not sure if I have the time for another 40+ hour marathon.
    I enjoyed this narrator but perferred the Davina Porter who does the unabridged stories.
    As always she ends making you want to find out what happens next.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Deborah says: "Searching for the right words....."
    "Search for a new narrator"
    Overall

    Whilst I loved the story. The narrater was so dull.Preferred the narrater on Nora Roberts book Chasing Fire she was a joy to listen to.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Lore says: "Your first step down a very long and winding road."
    "I gave up!"

    You may as well listen to Lord of the Rings with the names changed. I did not like the voice of the narrator I found his accent painful to listen to. There are so may other better books.

    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.

    "Depressing Americana Preaching."
    Overall

    Depressing listen. It may have been enjoyed by your American listeners but not me as an Aussie! A free book is always nice but I would have preferred a choice of a few selected books. Something a little less Sunday School preaching would have been enjoyed more.

    In Chocolate Wars best-selling historian and award-winning documentary maker Deborah Cadbury takes a journey into her own family history to uncover the rivalries that have driven 250 years of chocolate empire-building.

    Petter says: "The problem with this book"
    "For the love all all things chocolate!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this story. Beautifully written and perfectly narrated.
    As a bit of a choc-o-holic there is so much more to one of our favourit foods. It was also a wonderful insite into such remarkable visionaries that were the Quakers who worked so hard and risked so much to make the world a better place. Highly recommended story.
