    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no . . . too long . . . too complaining and political at the end.


    Was Unbroken worth the listening time?

    the beginning was great.

    Once upon a time Martians and Venusians met, fell in love, and had happy relationships together because they respected and accepted their differences. Then they came to Earth and amnesia set in: They forgot they were from different planets.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "Fabulous. Great Readers!"
    Overall

    Fabulous book. There are a variety of great readers which adds a lot to the enjoyment of listening to the book read.

    Embarrassingly, I have to admit the details in the book brought back some memories of days of ignorance in the south.

    Very well written and a pleasure to hear.

    Soap opera style. I only finished listening to the book because it was on my book club selection. Wish I had used the library for this one.
