    Story

    An evil queen wishes to be the fairest in all the land, but her enchanted mirror tells her that there is one fairer: her stepdaughter, Snow White. This is the classic fairy tale of jealousy, seven dwarves, and a handsome prince.

    Story
    Where does Snow White rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one is very cute. A witch reads the story and she does a fun introduction where she is sympathetic to the evil queen. It is very fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow White?

    It had an ending I didn't expect and really liked. This is not Disney's version.


    Have you listened to any of Catherine Lutz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but I would.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It is a nice length for a short car ride or for a child to listen to before bed.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this version of Snow White and I think it is a story children would want to listen to over and over.

    Story
    (14)

    War of the Worlds by Herbert George Wells (H.G. Wells) was published in 1898 at a time when he wrote a series of novels related to a number of historical events of the time. The most important of these was the unification and militarization of Germany. The story, written in a semi-documentary style, is told in the first person by an unnamed observer. It tells of the events, which happen mostly in London and the county of Surrey, England, when a number of vessels manned by aliens are fired from Mars and land on Earth.

    John says: "Poor audio for a classic book"

    Where does The War of the Worlds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved this audio book. It is not read by a professional but the story is so good that I couldn't wait to hear who was reading the next chapter. While some of the readers were better than others they were all wonderful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The War of the Worlds?

    I loved the ending when he finds his wife and also realizes that this is not the end. The martians will be back.


    Which character – as performed by Daniel Avrahams and Steven Davis – was your favorite?

    I liked the narrators brother. He went out of his way to help complete strangers when others did not.


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

    After the martians are dying the narrator goes into a fugue state and some kindly strangers take care of him. I love hearing about human compassion during great catastrophes.


    Any additional comments?

    I took a chance buying the $.98 version instead of the $4.95 version. I was not dissappointed. This is a great reading by amateurs and I felt I got more than my money's worth. I look forward to hearing it again.

    Would you listen to Crush It! again? Why?

    Yes. The author reads the book and he is very entertaining to listen to. He often goes off script so it sounds like you are listening to a podcast, not a book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While it does have good advice the best part of this book is how he gets you excited about following your dreams.

    I have not listened to any others. I assume they would be similar.

    When a lightbulb falls in a subway tunnel, it releases a pathogen that could kill millions. While the mayor postures, people begin to die, especially on the city’s grim West Side. Hospitals become morgues. L trains are converted into rolling hearses. Finally, the government acts, sealing off entire sections of the city—but are they keeping people out or in?

    Drina says: "too many plots that don't interconnect."
    "A killer ride through Chicago"

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

    This is a great book for all Michael Harvey fans. Make sure you read The Third Rail first since this is more of a part 2 than a stand alone novel. Still, his books are amazing. He gives you all the ingredients you need, and then starts cooking a complex and intense mystery. You think you know where the story is going and it veers off into an alley filled with danger and deceit. You won't want to put this book down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character, Michael Kelly, reminds me of old time dectectives. He hunts down the answer no matter how his life is affected.


    What does Stephen Hoye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is easy to listen to and to me sounds like Michael Harvey should.


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

    A deadly pathogen release isn't the most dangerous issue in Michael Kelly's Chicago. Will he have time to find out what is?


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend you read the Michael Kelly mysteries in order, and when you do you will be eager to read We All Fall Down.

    A magnificent saga of American fiction, the Sacketts series is one of the greatest treasures by legendary storyteller Louis L'Amour. In The Daybreakers, L'Amour spins the tale of two brothers who couldn't be more different - yet remain bound by their restlessness of spirit.

    Yes. Listening to this book takes you back in time. It is perfect for a long drive and has a storyline that everyone will enjoy.

    The wisdom of Ty Sackett. He sees the world different than the people around him and it is profound.


    Which character – as performed by David Strathairn – was your favorite?

    Ty Sacket, the narrator, is my favorite character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I didn't want to stop listening until it was over.
