    First published in English under the title The Accident, Elie Wiesel's third novel in his trilogy of Holocaust literature has now adopted Wiesel's original title: Day. In the opening scene, a Holocaust survivor and successful journalist steps off a curb in New York City directly into the pathway of an oncoming cab. As he struggles between life and death, the journalist recalls the effects of the historical tragedy of the Holocaust on himself and his family.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Good read"
    Overall

    Excellent! Chilling and every thing I was hoping for out of this book.

    Thirteen years have passed since David Webb was last forced to assume the alias of the assassin Jason Bourne. Now, with one phone call, Webb is thrust back into the madness.

    Mark says: "Ultra Abridged"
    "Horrible dramatic reading"

    The horrible dramatic reading destroys any value that the text itself might have.

    He is a man with an unknown past and an uncertain future. A man dragged from the sea riddled with bullets, his face altered by plastic surgery - a man bearing the dubious identity of Jason Bourne. Now he is running for his life, the target of professional assassins, at the center of a maddening, deadly puzzle. Who is Jason Bourne? Listen to the sample below to hear Ludlum explain how an event in his life gave him the idea for The Bourne Identity.

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    Carrie says: "Nice break from the usual-"
    "Good Fun! Great Storytelling!"
    Overall

    I thougt I would just check this book out, but little did I realize what a fortune I was uncovering!

    A great read, good storytelling, and excellent narration!

    Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.

    Ronald says: "interesting topic - dull, boring, confusing book"
    "Pathetic!"
    Overall

    Next isn't worth the attempt, money, or time.

    What is wrong with the book: horrible reader, no action, pathetic plot development, disjointed writing, obnoxious overuse of the F-word, and a dull read.

  • Angela's Ashes

    Story
    (1423)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"
    "Dissapointing"
    Overall

    I selected this book because I thought I was going to be moved by human courage and strength to overcome great odds. This book had great potential to move the reader, however about half way through and clear up until the end, the book shifted and the author got caught up in the "excitement" of "wanking" (i.e., masturbation). This felt like such a disservice to the reader.

    Lily Owens has shaped her entire life around one devastating memory - the day her mother was killed. When she and her "stand-in-mother," a fierce-hearted black woman named Rosaleen, are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily enters a secret world of bees and honey, and of the Black Madonna who presides over this household of strong, wise women.

    France says: "Secret Life of Bees"
    "Magnificent!"
    Overall

    A compelling read! I couldn't put it down! This is 100% thought provoking, funny, highly sentimental, tearful, fantastic character development, lots of quotable quotes and the story leaves you...changed.
