  • The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate

    He's the media's darling, an inspiration to many, and the answer to everything from healthcare to taxes. He is Barack Obama - the silver-tongued senator with a phrase for everything and a promise for everyone. Sound too good to be true?

    Maegan Duryea says: "Raises a few serious quetsions..."
    "Great book but a too sarcatic sounding reader"
    Overall

    The book content was good and provided a lot of information I wish was known to more people before it is too late. My only problem is that the reader had a very sarcastic voice that for me distracted from the facts.

    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    Ray says: "It Could Happen Soon"
    "Unrealistic"
    Overall

    I am a fan of Glenn Beck TV, but the plot of this book seemed unrealistic to me. I think that was his intention. I believe he thinks that if he makes far enough out of our realistic possibilities that something more mild that we previously would have thought was not possible, but only just so, becomes possible. I am not really a judge of political thrillers, but the plot in this book seemed too much of a stretch for me to really enjoy.

  • To Try Men's Souls: A Novel of George Washington and the Fight for American Freedom

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 23 mins)

    Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen have turned their sharp eye for detail on the Revolutionary War. Their story follows three men with three very different roles to play in history: General George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Jonathan Van Dorn, a private in Washington's army. The action focuses on one of the most iconic events in American history: Washington crossing the Delaware.

    George says: "Bloody Feet and All"
    "Captivating telling of history."
    Overall

    This is a a very captivating and moving story and left me wanting more. I have never studied the American battle for independence before, but this book really made me want to.

    Story

    This is the story of Margaret Hale, a young English woman who accompanies her family's move from rural southern England to the industrial north. It proves to be a difficult change, with all the attendant social conflicts and cultural misunderstandings consequent to such situations. It is a study in contrasts. Mrs. Gaskell created one of the Victorian era's greatest heroines in Margaret Hale, a young lady of passionate intensity.

    Cariola says: "An Awesome Classic"
    "Wonderful book, poor voice for Margeret"
    Overall

    The book itself is very good. The narration, however is poor for the main character, Margaret. All of the other narration is good. He does a good job imitating different English accents.

    In this exclusive audio publishing event, Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate, shares an evening of his poetry in a benefit reading for WNYC, New York Public Radio. Often compared to Robert Frost, his poetry has been embraced by people of all ages and backgrounds, and his readings are most often standing room only.

    Melinda says: "Does Not Get Better Than This"
    "Understandable, funny, and poignat poems."
    Overall

    Billy Collins proves that poetry can really be enjoyable. The is one audible selection that I have listened to over and over and and still look forward to the next time.

    In this magisterial book, Roy Jenkins' unparalleled command of the political history of Britain and his own high-level government experience combine in a narrative account of Churchill's astounding career that is unmatched in its shrewd insights, its unforgettable anecdotes, the clarity of its overarching themes, and the author's nuanced appreciation of his extraordinary subject.

    Karen says: "Best of British Political Soap Opera"
    "Excellent reading of an Excellent book"
    Overall

    The reader, first of all, was wonderful. He provided realistic voices to the characters including the women (which many male readers get wrong).

    The book was fascinating. A wonderfully complete biography of Churchill. I gained a very good understanding of Churchill's strengths and weaknesses without distracting from his incredible role in history.

    This radio dramatization of the classic musical features Judy Garland re-creating the role for which she received an honorary Academy Award. It aired on Dec. 25, 1950, a dozen years after the movie was released.

    Sage Wood says: "A super classic gem!"
    "Like sitting with my grandma listing to the radio"
    Overall

    Growing up in the TV era made me wonder what it would be like to sit and "watch" the radio. This made me feel like I was right there doing that.
