    "This book will give you nightmares," cautions The New York Times. Richard Preston takes us inside the ongoing war against bioterrorism, investigating the anthrax attacks of October 2001 and the potential for a future bio-attack using smallpox or, worse yet, a new superpox virus resistant to all vaccines. "As exciting as the best thrillers, yet scarier by far, for Preston's pages deal with clear, present and very real dangers," says Publishers Weekly.

    John S. Atherton says: "Pretty interesting listening in a horrific way"
    "Frightening"
    Overall

    Richard Preston has done it again. This book is scarier than Hot Zone by a longshot. Great Book and great narration! Out of five stars? I really would give it 10

    I cannot imagine reading this book in the traditional way - the different voices added so much to this book! I haven't seen the movie and honestly don't want to now that I have heard that they strayed so far from this incredible story. Wish I could give it more stars!!!

    Florida Gothic Stories contains 11 of Vicki Hendricks’ best, some previously published and some new to this volume. Hendricks’ stories are riveting and unsettling - some offer surreal sojourns into the dark side of magical realism while others are pure Florida noir, with a full menu of characters twisted and damaged, yet with a gritty determination to survive.

    Thank you Audible for allowing me to return something that was not for me - I should have read reviews more closely and checked the reviews on Amazon as well on this one. While this may be for some people, I just could not get into this book at all.

    I guess I need to go back and look at the definition of gothic - I was thinking more in line with ghosts and spooky, and maybe it gets there later in the book but ......

  • Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

    Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

    Great book! Bought this book on whim, and m so glad that I did! This book has changed the way I look at both food, and the industrial food machine. Some may find the science book style a little difficult, but I enjoy it, and it is well worth it. That said, I did have to go back and re-listen to a chapter or two to make sure I understood what was being said.

    The narrator is perfect - his delivery is not dry or boring, and he keeps you engaged with the reading.

    All in all, definite 5 star book

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Story

    When I first tried to listen to this book the murdered family at the very beginning really bothered me, and I just couldn't get into it. I read a few more of Neil Gaiman's book and decided to give this one another chance. So glad that I did, this is a very good book.
    I really hated to see it end and wanted to follow Nobody on more adventures and learning experiences.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Story
    What did you love best about Go the F--k to Sleep?

    Samuel L Jackson


    What did you like best about this story?

    the expression of just pure desperation of trying to get a small child to just lay down and go to sleep


    What about Samuel L. Jackson’s performance did you like?

    Samuel L Jackson has one of those voices that just emotes whatever he is saying, you don't even need to see his face to feel the emotion


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

    The eternal conflict of parent and child


    Any additional comments?

    This is on my iPod and my iPad, I carry it with me always. If I am having a bad day, I can take a few minutes listen to this and have no choice but to laugh and remember there are much more frustrating things than what I am dealing with at the time. Love it!!!

    Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

    Where does Side Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a REALLY good book, I would put it in the top five without a doubt


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved Harry Dresden - especially when things weren't quite going his way


    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

    Surprisingly - Murphy. His portrayal of her was great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed at quite a few parts - loved Harry trying to have a day off - could identify completely!! Not so much the werewolves making out in the living room, but the total cluster of the day was very funny!


    Any additional comments?

    For not having read any of the Dresden books previously, this was a great sampler of the stories and characters. Will be starting with book one and check out the series. Especially liked seeing that James Marsters is reading the whole set of books, I like that. His voice is great and he gave each character their own unique personality.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story
    If you could sum up Ready Player One in three words, what would they be?

    nostalgic fantasy escapism


    What other book might you compare Ready Player One to and why?

    Hard to do - this was such a unique book


    Which character – as performed by Wil Wheaton – was your favorite?

    Absolutely Wade! Even though I have enjoyed everything Wil Wheaton has narrated to date, NO ONE could have brought Wade to life like he did. Perfect choice of narrator!


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

    When Wade and Samantha finally met in person. It was a wonderful moment in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is by far one of the best books I have read in ages. I cannot rave enough about it. The nostalgic references, the gaming references, it is almost like a warm and fuzzy memory book, that just makes you feel good.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Hope says: "A Worthy Book, indeed"
    "LOVED IT"

    This is a great book! I cannot imagine anyone else narrating, Fisher Stevens is fantastic!!! I have not 'read' Dirty Jobs yet but it has moved to the top of the wish list after this one.

    A superb, high quality hypnosis program by Glenn Harrold, the UK's best-selling self-help audio author. After being safely guided into a very deep state of complete mental and physical relaxation, you will be given multiple suggestions to release any need or desire for sweet, fattening food and feel good about eating smaller amounts of healthy food instead.

    I figured if nothing else it would be helpful for going to sleep at night. But this has proven to be working. I have suddenly noticed at different times that I have not been 'grazing' all day like I normally would be. Or I have not been having something before bed. I have no problem with heavy accents, or different pronunciations of words, so that part did not bother me like it has other reviews. All in all, I am very happy I got this one.
