    For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop, a brilliant detective, had to be destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grew, so did the outrage about the scapegoating of Mark Fuhrman. Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in a damning expose.

  • Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

    Story

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I think it gives a lot of information on how the Mormon religion began and it also looks into how a fanatic of any belief could do something horrible in the name of religion.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this series to a friend. I really love True Blood and these books are great to listen to when waiting for the show to air again. As they are on the last season now the books will be sure to keep me entertained.


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

    She voices the characters really well. Everyone has a distinct voice and it makes the story that much better.

    If you think ghosts are only responsible for hauntings, think again. The Demonologist reveals the grave religious process behind supernatural events and how it can happen to you. Used as a text in seminaries and classrooms, this is one book you can't put down. For over five decades, Ed and Loraine Warren have been considered America's foremost experts on demonology and exorcism. With over 3,000 investigations to their credit, they reveal what actually breaks the peace in haunted houses. Don't miss the Warrens in the new blockbuster movie The Conjuring.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Demonologist in three words, what would they be?

    My three word summary would be Very Interesting History. These people worked for years and the stories they have are very interesting. I listened to this right after The Amityville Horror, a few questions I had after that book were cleared up. I don't know if I believe everything but the stories are very fun to listen to.


    What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

    The reader was not slow or dull, he kept you interested in the story.


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

    I feel like the film based on certain aspects of the book was already made and it was made well. The Conjuring was a really great horror film.

    In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their new home on suburban Long Island. George and Kathleen Lutz knew that, one year earlier, Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers, and sisters in the house, but the property - complete with boathouse and swimming pool - and the price were too good to pass up. This is the shocking true story of an American dream that turned into a nightmare beyond imagining for the Lutz family, who were forced to flee their new home in terror.

    What did you love best about The Amityville Horror?

    I loved getting the whole story, The movies changed so much and the book is actually a lot scarier than the films. I really enjoyed it.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the First time I listened to a book by Ray Porter, and he reads very well.

  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    Where does Tough Sh-t rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love this book. I'm a very big fan of Kevin Smith and am super upset that his other books are not available on Audible.


    Any additional comments?

    This book, like any of Smith's books is a look into his life which is so interesting and with him reading it it's like he's telling to all of these stories personally. Plus, he's hilarious which is the best part of any of his books!

    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.

    Where does The Hunger Games rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's actually one of if not my favorite book, so far! It wasn't expected to be either. I only bought it because I promised my little brother I'd read it. I didn't expect to love it so much but it soon became a book I didn't want to stop listening to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hunger Games?

    One of the most memorable moments was when Katniss thought Peta was working against her. When she heard him with the other Tributes and didn't realize he was actually trying to help her win.


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

    The way she tells the story makes you feel like you're there. It might've been the same if I'd read the book myself but I listened while driving and it kept me awake on a long trip.


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

    I feel like the actual film tagline it pretty perfect. "May the odds be ever in your favor."

    In the instant #1 New York Times bestseller Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve Harvey gave millions of women around the globe insight into what men really think about love, intimacy, and commitment. In his new book, he zeros in on what motivates men and provides tips on how women can use that knowledge to get more of what they need out of their relationships.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and have recommended this book to friends, I really enjoyed the humor and the truth in this book.


    What other book might you compare Straight Talk, No Chaser to and why?

    I would compare it to He's Just Not That Into You or Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. I was really sad to find that the latter is not available on Audible.


    What about Steve Harvey’s performance did you like?

    I like that the Harvey is the one reading the book. It is a story that he wrote from personal experiences so it plays like he's talking to you, telling you all about this and that. That's what kept me listening and laughing.


    What did you learn from Straight Talk, No Chaser that you would use in your daily life?

    It's a lot of common sense that you tend to forget when you're dating, when you like someone, etc. The book makes you think about when you've messed up and what you've learned also it gives you something to look forward to.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, I listened to it while getting ready and driving to work. The humor made me look forward to my day!
