    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Tale of Momumental Evil, Stupidity and Hatred"
    "Detailed and well narrated"
    Overall

    Collectively a very interesting narrative of the Third Reich. My only complaint, and why it slipped a star on my scale, was I felt the author weighed in too much with his own opinions.

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 18 mins)

    Story
    (5242)

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Haden says: "My friends thought I was crazy."
    "Interesting topic... Fair story"
    Overall

    Seth Smith took the literary interest of Lincoln, mixed in the popularity of the Twilight series, and told it along a story line that paralleled The Da Vinci Code, and out came an interesting idea but marginally performed. The narration and story was good enough to keep me listening until the end. If you enjoy vampire books then it is likely worth a listen, otherwise spend your money on something else.

  • Nostromo

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 15 mins)
    • By Joseph Conrad
    • Narrated By John Lee

    Joseph Conrad’s multilayered masterpiece tells of one nation's violent revolution and one hero's moral degeneration. Conrad convincingly invents an entire country, Costaguana, and sets it afire as warlords compete for power and a fortune in silver.

    Señor Gould, adamant that his silver should not become spoil for his enemies, entrusts it to his faithful longshoreman, Nostromo, a local hero of sorts whom Señor Gould believes to be incorruptible.

    Darwin8u says: "An Almost PERFECT Novel."
    "An odd twist"
    Overall

    At times a good book can fall flat due to poor narration. This listen was my first experience of excellent narration of a story with little purpose. In Nostromo, Conrad seems to have spent too much time on language and not enough time on storytelling.
