  • Endurance: Green Universe, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 41 mins)
    • By Jay Lake
    • Narrated By Katherine Kellgren

    Green is back in Copper Downs. Purchased from her father in sunny Selistan when she was four years old, she was harshly raised to be a courtesan, companion, and bedmate of the Immortal Duke of Copper Downs. But Green rebelled.Green killed the Duke, and many others, and won her freedom. Yet she is still claimed by the gods and goddesses of her world, and they still require her service. Their demands are greater than any duke's could have been.

    MrBoobo says: "Enjoyable"
    "I could not get off the first chapter!"
    Would you try another book from Jay Lake and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    I don't think so.

    Has Endurance turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, between the story and the performance I just found I could not get off the first chapter

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I found her reading performance as artificial.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I did not get far enough to find out.

  • Patton at the Battle of the Bulge: How the General's Tanks Turned the Tide at Bastogne

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Leo Barron
    • Narrated By Tom Weiner

    Hitler's forces had pressed in on the small Belgian town in a desperate offensive designed to push back the Allies, starting the Battle of the Bulge. So far, the US soldiers had managed to repel waves of attackers and even a panzer onslaught, but as their ammunition dwindled, the weary paratroopers of the 101st Airborne could only hope for a miracle - a miracle in the form of General George S. Patton and his Third Army.

    Michael says: "False Advertising"
    "False Advertising"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The book could have discussed General Patton's challenges during this battle.

    What could Leo Barron have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't try to sell a book by putting a popular generals name on the cover!

    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weiner’s performances?

    Narration was fine.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book should have been from the German point of view.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy history book and especially books on WWII but was a little frustrated with this one, since the title of the book says it is about General Patton. The story spends all its time discussing German troop movements! I will be very careful about buying books that claim there about General Patton in the future.

  • New Earth: The Grand Tour, Book 18

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Ben Bova
    • Narrated By Stefan Rudnicki
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    We’ve found another Earthlike planet, but what secrets does it hold? The entire world is thrilled by the discovery of a new, Earthlike planet. Advance imaging shows that the planet has oceans of water and a breathable, oxygen-rich atmosphere. Eager to learn more, an exploration team is soon dispatched to explore the planet, now nicknamed New Earth.

    Brian says: "Not my thing"
    "Disappointed in Ben Bova!"
    What disappointed you about New Earth?

    We travel eight light year to encounter more humans...really?!?

    What was most disappointing about Ben Bova’s story?

    This is the author who brought us "Jupiter" and "Leviathan" so the aliens presented in this story are a big disappoinment for me.

    What three words best describe Stefan Rudnicki’s voice?

    His narration is fine as always.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big Ben Bova Fan, but this is not an example of his best work.

  • Congo

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Michael Crichton
    • Narrated By Judith Ivey

    Deep in the heart of the darkest region of the Congo, an eight-person field expedition dies mysteriously and brutally in a matter of minutes. A gruesome video transmission of that ill-fated team reveals the grainy, moving image of a dark, blurred shape. A new expedition is sent into the Congo, descending into a secret world where the only way out may be through the grisliest death.

    Nicole says: "How they managed to make this boring, I don't know"
    "Classic Crichton!"
    What made the experience of listening to Congo the most enjoyable?

    This is one of my favorites. Wish this was unabridged!

    What about Judith Ivey’s performance did you like?

    Her reading is easy to listen to.
