    From July 10, 1943, the date of the Allied landing in Sicily, to May 8, 1945, when victory in Europe was declared - the entire time it took to liberate Europe - no regiment saw more action, and no single platoon, company, or battalion endured worse, than the ones commanded by Felix Sparks, who had entered the war as a greenhorn second lieutenant of the 157th "Eager for Duty" Infantry Regiment of the 45th "Thunderbird" Division. Sparks and his fellow Thunderbirds fought longest and hardest to defeat Hitler.

    Where does The Liberator rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an excellent book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Felix Sparks, of course!


    What does Fred Sanders bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed Fred Sanders performance. Listening to the foreign names is preferable to reading them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story broke my heart a hundred times over. How did anyone survive this? Much less come back and create such a normal life?

    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    Excellent book. Excellent performance. Held my attention completely. Only disappointment was at the end - did not want it to end but go on and on...

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)

    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....

    Story

    One of the best books ever written. The way the characters interact over many years is brilliant. An image of life so many many years is enlightening. A must read.
