    Story

    The plot is somewhat contrived, with improbable last-minute escapes, etc. However, if you are looking for good, plain fun and an entertaining read (as I was), you will like this book.
    The narrator is superb.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Story

    He doesn't gloss over JFK's weaknesses, but he portrays a man who grows into the office. I lived through those events as a pre-teen, and I got a real thrill hearing him put them into their context. I happen to like O'Reilly's voice and naarative style, but I guess that's a matter of personal taste.

    High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches. Its task, programmed so many millennia ago, is to guard the human settlement on this planet, to protect this fragile remnant of Earth from all threats...to protect them, most of all, from themselves.

    Story

    First of all, you have to listen to them in order:
    The Memory of Earth
    The Call of Earth
    The Ships of Earth
    Earthfall
    Earthborn

    Stefan Rudnicki is my all-time favorite naarator, and he certainly didn't disappoint me in this one. I really enjoy hearing the Russian-sounding names rolling easily off his tounge.
    Card returns to a recurring theme in his books. An honest, good-hearted brother who wants nothing more than to earn the love of his cynical, self-serving brother
    (Alvin/Calvin Ender/Peter...) All the elements of a classical OSC novel - some mysticism, good solid sci-fi, romance, and self-discovery. His character development is superb, as usual.
    Warning: If you purchase the first one, be prepared to purchase the other four. You won't be able to stop.

    New York Times best-selling author Brian Jacques has millions of copies of his phenomenally popular Redwall series in print. Fans cannot get enough of the feasting, fighting, and fantastic adventures that fill every book.

    Story

    Two swashbuckling Scotsmen to the rescue.
    The story has the usual mix of suspense and loyalty.
    I love Brian Jaques Scottish burr, but this book features two charming Higland Scottish accents.
    BJ fans won't be disappointed.

    I couldn't stop until I heard all three books. A young girl finds strength and courage and some unlikely allies. I love the naarator. She sounds like a young girl because that is the main character!

    In a not-too-distant future that is not quite ours, there has been a major scientific breakthrough. It is a way to open windows into the past, permitting historical researchers to view, but not participate, in the events of the past.

    In one of the most powerful and thought-provoking novels of his remarkable career, Orson Scott Card interweaves a compelling portrait of Christopher Columbus with the story of a future scientist who believes she can alter human history from a tragedy of bloodshed and brutality to a world filled with hope and healing.

    Alan says: "A Novel of What It Means to Be Human"
    "Card supasses himseslf"
    Overall

    Orson Scott Card is incapable of writing a bad book, and Stefan Rudnicki is incapable of rendering a bad naaration. Pastwatch is a masterpiece even by their lofty standards.
    The historical research alone which went into the writing of the book is breathtaking.
    Card has crafted one of the most compelling and brilliant plots I have ever read.
    Don't start listening at night if you expect to get to work the next day.
