    He was born Temujin, son of a khan, raised in a clan of hunters migrating across the steppe. Temujin's young life was shaped by a series of brutal acts: the betrayal of his father by a neighboring tribe, his family left to die on the harsh plain. But Temujin endured, and from then on, he was driven by a fury to survive in the face of death, to kill before being killed, and to conquer enemies from beyond the horizon.

    I love historical books, fiction or non-fiction. This book drew me in right from the beginning. The author made you feel as if you were there. I wanted the story to continue. Just found out that it does!!! Can't wait to listen to them.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book if I actually heard the whole thing. Apparently the download was a bit to be desired. I thought I was getting the whole book but it paused and unbeknownst to me, it skipped around. As I thought I was listening to Part one on my MPG player, it always said resume, highlighted in Part one, however I soon discovered that I was in Part two and at the end. With all the skipping around it sort of connected as I did not make the connection that it was skipping so much. A lot of military and personal dialogue sort of meshed it all together. At any rate, Mr. McCullough's narrative and insights were superb! I will try again, at a future date, to try and listen to the 'whole' book again.


    Could you see 1776 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It should be made into a TV series.


    Any additional comments?

    If members, at any time, have trouble with the downloads of a book, I think it is Audibles responsibility to try and fix them before anyone else downloads that particular book.

    Sophia Giambelli has never worried about competition. As a savvy businesswoman, she knows she must be prepared for anything...but she isn't prepared for Tyler MacMillan.

    Marty Kalish is a young man suffocating in the heat of an affair with a married woman named Rachel. When Rachel's husband disappears one night, Marty is one of the first to be questioned. With few likely suspects, the police arrest him for murder. We want him to be innocent, but the more he tells us, the more we fear he is guilty. And as the twists and turns of the plot unfold, we can't be completely sure.

    Very slow and uninteresting to start, then some interest, in the end, a big WOW!! Very cleaver.
