  • His Excellency: George Washington

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Joseph J. Ellis
    • Narrated By Nelson Runger

    Acclaimed author Joseph J. Ellis penned the National Book Award-winning American Sphinx and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Founding Brothers, a fixture on The New York Times best seller list for an entire year, and one of the most popular history books of all time. Now this master historian turns his attention to the most exalted American hero, Founding Father and first President George Washington.

    Gerard says: "Distracted By Narrator"
    "Not what I expected"
    Overall

    After listening to founding brothers,(highly recommended),I expected more out of this book. It seemed to take Washington and tell us all the reasons why the listener shouldn't think of him as in any way great, and all the while dismissing to quickly the very reasons that we do. This seems to stray from Ellis's earlier assessment of the same man. This book also seemed to be more in line with a book meant for classroom discussion than the entertaining and informative book I had expected after listening to his last. I would rather recommend "John Adams" or the afore mentioned Ellis book instead.

    New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint has received glowing critical praise for his Ring of Fire alternate history series. In this first installment, a West Virginia town is transported from the year 2000 to 1631 Germany at the height of the Thirty Years’ War. Thrust into conflict, the town residents must also contend with moral issues such as who should be considered a citizen.

    Ben says: "Finally on Audible!!"

    What did you love best about 1632?

    Wasn't sure what to expect, but was really good. Excellent narration. And a unique story line. If you like the "Destroyer Men" series you'll love this.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Fellowship of the Ring in three words, what would they be?

    It is a timeless classic. So much more here than the movies (still great) can get into. You get such deeper insight into the characters. It can be a bit more whimsical than the movies, if that is your only exposure to this story. Great narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sam is still the unsung hero.


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

    There are a lot of different characters in this book, and Inglis does a great job at keeping them separate.


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

    There were times that it drug a little long, but over all it was great.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the credit.

    Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries are critically acclaimed. Longmire's third outing takes him from Wyoming to Philadelphia to investigate a brutal assault on his daughter, Cady. Walt believes her ex-boyfriend is behind the crime and searches him out. But when he turns up dead, Walt is back to square one.

    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Henry Standing Bear is still the ultimate side kick. The stories just wouldn't be the same without him in there.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love this series. I get a new book and its done in just a couple days and then I'm chomping at the bit waiting till next months credits to arrive. I'm so glad that Audible recommended this series to me or I would have never found it.

  • A Christmas Story: The Book That Inspired the Hilarious Classic Film

    The holiday film A Christmas Story, first released in 1983, has become a bona fide Christmas perennial, gaining in stature and fame with each succeeding year. Its affectionate, wacky, and wryly realistic portrayal of an American family's typical Christmas joys and travails in small-town Depression-era Indiana has entered our imagination and our hearts with a force equal to It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.

    Paul says: "Its not the movie but its still good"
    "Just like an old friend!"

    What did you love best about A Christmas Story?

    I absolutely love this story. When I was a kid my older sister took me to see the movie in our down town single screen movie theater. Like most of what is in the book, that theater as well as the down town is gone and moved to the mall, but the memories remain. This will be my generations
