    A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion.

    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.

    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    I've listend or read almost all of her books and she is a great author. The characters are great you can almost know what there going through and just feal like your there. But the foul language I can't stand. I got so sick of it I stopped listing to this book. And I knew when I bought it there was going to be some but I can only take so much. So if you don't like hearing or reading those words don't get this book, spend your credit on something elese.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    no


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    yes


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    don't know


    Any additional comments?

    no

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have waited along time for Audible to come out wtih a version of this book i thought i would like. And i loved it. The Narrator was great. He did a good job on all the different charecters.
    In fact i like it so much i've listend to it three times already. And now i'm gettin Book one in the Two Towers. Thanks Audible.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    He really did a good job on all the different Charecters. There is alot of them in this book and he really did a good job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end when Bilbo finally got home.

    The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

    Overall

    Brandon Sanderson does a great job in capturingh the imagination and takes you away as if you where there. At times it seemed to go on and on and i wanted to just get to the point, but in the end i see why he does this. I've listend to a couple of his books and recommend any of them. Because if the two diffrent series i listend to are that good well i'de think they are all good.

    I enjoyed this book as much as the frist one. I love the charecters, and the narrator can almost take you away and you can imagine your there with all the action, and suspence. I would say this is one of the best aligorical book sieres ive read. And im going to buy the books this weekend. ( sorry about my spelling, i'm not a good one).

    Young Michael, an illegal immigrant escaping the troubles in Northern Ireland is strong and fearless and clever, just the fellow to be tapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs struggling against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx. The time is pre-Giuliani New York, when crack rules the city, squatters live furtively in ruined buildings, and hundreds are murdered each month.

    "One of the worst !!!"
    Overall

    This book was one of the worst books i've ever bought on audible. IF you don't like alot of foul language and i meen alot . I highly recommend you don't buy this book. It was very boring. Yes there was action in it, but it to went way over bored. I bought book two also just because and put both on mp3 and listend mabye almost two hours and couldnt take anymore. And deleted both of them. I really wish i would of bought two other books.

    An Englishman plans to assassinate the dictator of a European country. But he is foiled at the last moment and falls into the hands of ruthless and inventive torturers. They devise for him an ingenious and diplomatic death but, for once, they bungle the job and he escapes. But England provides no safety from his pursuers - and the Rogue Male must strip away all the trappings of status and civilization as the hunter becomes a hunted animal.

    I never had heard of Geoffey Household. I really enjoyed listening to this book that i bought the rest of what audible had. I've listened to only part of another so far and it is very interesting so far. I recommend these books.

    Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the U.S. president that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board.

    I did enjoy this book. I listened to the frist two and enjoyed them two. I just wish the bad language would be shown ( like on movies or games ) before a person bought a book. I won't listen to anymore of these books by this auther. ( i am sorry for my bad spelling)

    It was a time of legend, the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain. While, across a vast sea, bloody war shattered a peace that had flourished for 2,000 years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis. This is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the courageous princess from Atlantis who escapes the terrible devastation of her land, and of the fabled seer and druid prince Taliesin, singer at the dawn of the age. It is a story of an incomparable love that joins two astonishing worlds....

    John says: "A Classic interpretation of a Classic tale"

    Overall

    Stephen Lawhead is a amazing author. He can write in soo many different catagoeries and make you want more. And not care if its a catgoerie that you don't like your going to like it if you like Lawhead. I can't wait to get book two. I highly reccomend Lawhead if u like books that keep u guessing,laughing,crying.

    Steven James' Christy Award-nominated crime thriller pits FBI Special Agent Bowers against a serial killer who enjoys torturing women. After visiting the mountain vistas where the murderer posed his dead victims, Bowers receives a taunting call from the "Illusionist." Although Bowers gets close, his insidious foe continues to elude him.

    Bill says: "Entertaining Enough, But Don't Listen Too Closely"
    "Can't wait for book four The Bishop"
    Overall

    All three books where great in this series. Steven James writes them in away that you get to know the charecters better and better. He also makes it so you keep on guessing who the villian is. I had thought i had it figured out in book one but boy was i wrong. If you like a good mystery i recommend these books.
