    In an evocative and fast-paced adventure on the high seas and on a faraway island an orphan boy named Peter and his mysterious new friend, Molly, overcome bands of pirates and thieves in their quest to keep a fantastical secret safe and save the world from evil.

    Deborah says: "A fast paced frolic on the high seas!"

    Overall

    A very fun story, I’m a 50 year old kid and I couldn’t shut this off. What a great story of Peter Pan. I will definitely get Book 2. I suggest this for any age you’ll appreciate the greatness without bad language, sex, gruesome violent.

    Over 13 days, as various decisions are second-guessed and sometimes regretted, both passengers and guides find that sometimes the most daunting adventures on a Colorado River trip have nothing to do with white-water rapids, and everything to do with reconfiguring the rocky canyons of the heart.

    glamazon says: "Great! A Rolicking Ride."
    "I can’t believe I listen to the whole thing"
    Overall

    The name of this book had a lot of promise being that I have rafted a few times before although never in the Grand Canyon. I have hiked the Canyon so again promise. The narrator was very stiff he did do a good job in changing voices for the charters. The author tried to make this a coming of age story but failed miserably.

    Even in Grundy, Alaska, its unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem.

    Mariya says: "Preternaturally Funny"
    "Why did I finish this book?"
    Overall

    This book has absolutely no value. I learned nothing that I could take away from the book. The narrators high pitch voice can grate on you. Her attempt to do male voices is terrible. The authors attempt to write a sex scene is the worst I have encountered. Good luck if you decide on this one.

    A moving coming-of-age story set in the 1900s, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn follows the lives of 11-year-old Francie Nolan, her younger brother Neely, and their parents, Irish immigrants who have settled in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. Johnny Nolan is as loving and fanciful as they come, but he is also often drunk and out of work, unable to find his place in the land of opportunity.

    Nancy says: "Leaves you wondering what happened next -"
    "A Must Hear"
    Overall

    I'm so glad I decided to get this classic. You will not be disappointed. This would be a great book for a book club. I would guess most clubs have already had this on their read list just not mine. Then I have only been a member for a year

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    B.J. says: "Good, but with reservations"
    "Another Great Purchase from Audible"
    Overall

    This is a great historically accurate book with insight of slavery and the ownership of them, tragedy and love. Although I found Lavina to be dense which hurt the story. If you liked “The Help”. You will certainly like this book.

  • Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

    Story

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"
    "Sweet Story"
    Overall

    The narration on this book is fantastic. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is very much like Secret Life of Bees.

    Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His potential heirs, to no one's surprise - especially Troy's - are circling like vultures. But Troy shocks them all when he leaves his fortune to an estranged, illegitimate daughter.

    Richard says: "Best Grisham Ever"
    "Could this really happen"
    Overall

    I loved this story as I usually get tired of Grisham’s court drama books. The old man in this story rocks. I would love to see this in real life.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "YA Book for sure"
    Overall

    Differently a YA book. Glad I listen to it to discuss with my niece. I won’t listen to the other two unless I just can’t find anything else to listen to. HA!!! like that’s going to happen.

  • The Second World War: Milestones to Disaster

    Churchill's history of the Second World War is, and will remain, the definitive work. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction.

    John M says: "Brilliant! Only Churchill could have done this."
    "A Lot of Information"
    Overall

    So much I did not know about the Second World War the problem is there is so much political information I got lost in a lot of the story.

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "The word "Odd" will never be the same."
    Overall

    Very clever… I can’t wait to listen to the next one. I cannot hear the word “Odd” without thinking of Odd Thomas. The narrator is awesome hope he reads the rest of the series.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    Zachary says: "Matterhorn"
    "Matterhorn ???"
    Overall

    Couldn’t finish, too many characters therefore I couldn’t connect with any of them to get into the story.
