    It was an ok book. Hard to keep up with the way the story flowed. Was disappointed, the expectation of the adventure didn't come through.

    Narrator was pretty good.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    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.

    Story

    It was really slow in the beginning, but after an hour and half or it was a lot easier to get in to. Once the book got going though, it was really good. Narrator wasn't bad, I guess it was the story that was slow in the beginning.

    This best seller tells of the young Dutch factory worker's incredible efforts to transport Bibles across closed borders - and the miraculous ways in which God provided for him every step of the way. Brother Andrew's story remains as inspiring today as it was 35 years ago, and with this new release, it will motivate a whole new generation to risk everything to follow God's call.

    Pastor Kyle Idleman doesn't just want to be a fan of Jesus, he wants to full heartedly commit to him and be a follower of Jesus. But how can you make the leap from fan to follower? In Not a Fan Idleman uses biblical examples to show how the people who met Jesus also had to decide if they were fans or followers, and what it meant for them to then become followers.

    Author Matthew Robert Payne says: "I am a follower and not a FAN"

    This was a great book. My sunday school class was doing a series on this book and I had to be away for the majority of the time so I picked it up. The author reads it to you, makes great sense and you don't want to stop reading it. Sad that I had finished it. I did however go and by a paperback for a friend overseas.

    Don't think about it, get it

    This story is told in the words of a tragic figure in American history - a hook-nosed, hollow-cheeked old Sauk warrior who lived under four flags while the Mississippi Valley was being wrested from his people. The author is Black Hawk himself - once pursued by an army whose members included Captain Abraham Lincoln and Lieutenant Jefferson Davis. Perhaps no Indian ever saw so much of American expansion or fought harder to prevent that expansion from driving his people to exile and death.

    In early May 2006, a young British climber named David Sharp lay dying near the top of Mount Everest while forty other climbers walked past him on their way to the summit. A week later, Lincoln Hall, a seasoned Australian climber, was left for dead near the same spot. Hall's death was reported around the world, but the next day he was found alive after spending the night on the upper mountain with no food and no shelter.

    What did you like best about Dark Summit? What did you like least?

    I'm not sure, it wasn't a bad book but I didn't have anything I loved.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    ehh


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know all that went on during that climbing season. It was interesting to hear about and I would recommend this book if you want to know more about the dangers of Mt. Everest.

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    Any additional comments?

    I really did try to read this book but it was slow and hard to get into. The speaker did a great job with the southern accents, however it couldn't overshadow the unexcitingness of the book
