    Even in Empire City, a town where weird science is the hope for tomorrow, it's hard for a robot to make his way. It's even harder for a robot named Mack Megaton, a hulking machine designed to bring mankind to its knees. But Mack's not interested in world domination. He's just a bot trying to get by, trying to demonstrate that he isn't just an automated smashing machine, and to earn his citizenship in the process. It should be as easy as crushing a tank for Mack, but some bots just cant catch a break.

    "Unexpected!"

    I wasn't sure about listening to this book, but after reading the other reviews I decided to give it a try. I was unexpectedly surprised by the "old detective" feel to this sci-fi book. It was a joy to listen to and I expect it will be on my "repeat listen" list in the future.

    From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war"....

    C. Johnson says: "Standard Archer "class-clash". Stellar narration!!"
    "Better than "The Winds of War""

    What did you like best about this story?

    This story has been compared by others to


    What does Roger Allam and Emelia Fox bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Both are excellent narrators that bring life to an excellent line up of characters.


    Who was the most memorable character of Only Time Will Tell and why?

    Old Jack was my favorite character. He ended up tying all of the characters in the story together.


    Any additional comments?

    As I said before I cannot wait for the next installment of the Clifton Chronicles!

    I highly recommend this book.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Pamela says: "The circus of your dreams"

    Story

    I read all of the reviews before listening to this book. They all claimed it to be the "next big thing". I do not agree. Probably the only reason why I made it through the whole book was the excellent narrator, Jim Dale. I found the storyline to be tedious and boring with too many loose ends never resolved. Hopefully, my next book to listen to will be another narrated by Mr. Dale.

    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Darinda says: "Love it!"

    Overall

    This book sat on my wish list far too long! Now that I finally read it, I was sad to learn Katherine Howe has no other books posted on audible.com.

    Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

    Dr. says: "Initially engaging, but ultimately not satisfying"
    "Ace!"
    Overall

    I first downloaded and listened to this book in 2006. I have listened to this book at least 3 times and love it more each time. The premise of this book is simple, but you will need to dig a little deeper to get at the message.

    Tiffany Aching, the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil, is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn't expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

    Joyce says: "More Crivens!"
    "Wish there was another"
    Overall

    A Hat Full of Sky was a very cute and entertaining listen...I wish there was another volume in this series.

    Make sure read Wee Free Men first!!!
