    Story
    (132)

    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

    Story
    What did you love best about American Conspiracies?

    I liked the way the author ties together the history of conspiracies and events which show a cohesive picture of what really happened over our recent past.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The 9/11 portion of the book made so much sense based on only facts that it begs the re-opening of a real investigation however it would also reveal a deeper motivation and agenda.


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

    Look Under the Stones


    Any additional comments?

    I would have appreciated a more unbiased review of recent politics as it is clear the author favors a Democrat over Republican slant. A bias of "our side" vs. "their side" is moot considering the subject matter. In addition it comes across as somewhat disingenuous as Obama is obviously a socialist and continuing the decline of the consitution building on the actions of all the past offenders.

    Story
    (3393)

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Daniel says: "History Made Interesting"
    "Good chronological narrative of the events."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Lincoln to be better than the print version?

    In some ways the audio was better as the text is written more like a news report rather than a narrative and the narrator reads it in that fashion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The chronology and research is very thorough.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing except to learn the difference between Cavalry and Calvary as he makes this mistake repeatedly.


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

    Yes but too long for one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Some events which are still in dispute regarding the conspirators and motivations were not touched on and probably should have been included even if only as speculation at this time.

    Sharing memories from early childhood through her life as a Carmelite nun, Therese opens her heart to us. This bride of Christ reveals her passion and longing for union with God. Her simplicity is charming and we begin to believe that we can travel the path to salvation that she points out to us.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux in three words, what would they be?

    Honest Faithful Hopeful


    What other book might you compare The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux to and why?

    Psalms as St. Therese states almost every recollection as a thankful prayer to God.


    Have you listened to any of Sherry Kennedy Brownrigg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time.


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

    All of it was inspiring in particular how I can hear the voice of the young woman come through and easily hear my young daughters and their concerns in the writing.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book to read / listen to and put down to come back to over a period of a month as it is inspirational and trying to read it too quickly robs one of the full experience.
