  • The 5th Wave

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Rick Yancey
    • Narrated By Brandon Espinoza, Phoebe Strole
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, only the lucky escape. And after the third, only the unlucky survive. After the fourth wave, only one rule applies: Trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the fifth wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother - or even saving herself.

    FanB14 says: "Not Your Typical YA Dystopian Fare"
    "Too much of a monologue"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. For most of this book nothing actually happens. The first 90% of this book is predominately two separate monologues, not just because it is being read by one person but because it is written mostly as the thoughts of a single person without very much interaction with other characters. The book being written as a monologue is not the worst part its that during most of this monologue NOTHING happens....literally nothing significant at all.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was what actually won me over. I originally was only going to give this book one or two stars but the ending was so good that even though reading most of this book was pointless and waiting for something to happen the ending was really good. A lot happened and it "finished" the book to a point where you weren't left wondering too much what would happen to the characters.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Brandon Espinoza and Phoebe Strole ’s performances?

    Another one of Brandon's performances yes I would try but not another one of Phoebe's performances. No insult intended but she read the character in a very annoying way that originally was unbearable to listen to. I had to get used to it but even sometimes I would get distracted from the actual book by the fact that I found her reading of the character horrendously annoying.

    Could you see The 5th Wave being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No I definitely could not. The book moves too slowly, the monologue style would not be entertaining to watch and the book is not well written enough or the plot well thought out enough to compensate for the other flaws.

  • The Child: An Audible Drama

    • ORIGINAL (6 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Sebastian Fitzek
    • Narrated By Rupert Penry-Jones, Jack Boulter, Emilia Fox, and others

    My name is Simon. I’m 10 years old. I’m a serial killer. Robert Stern (Rupert Penry-Jones), a successful defense attorney, doesn’t know what lies in store for him when he agrees to meet a new client in a derelict estate on the outskirts of Berlin. Stern is more than surprised, when his old love interest and professional nurse Carina (Emilia Fox) presents him a ten year old boy as his new client. Simon (Jack Boulter), a terminally ill child, who is convinced he has murdered many men in a previous life.

    Rolando says: "Disappointing"
    "Great performance mediocre story"

    The story was ok but the performance was great. I liked that they had multiple voices for the different characters. Not a must listen to but if you are interested by the background then I'd say give it a try!

  • Just One Kiss: Fool's Gold, Book 11

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By Susan Mallery
    • Narrated By Tanya Eby
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw’s otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he’s back in Fool’s Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again - and her daughter, too?When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up.

    R. Smith says: "Light fluffy read"
    "Good story but ruined by the trashy novel moments"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The storyline is good though a little bit cheesy and predictable but the trashy novel sex descriptions ruin it. I'm not into books like that anyway but listening to someone else read those descriptions out loud was just too creepy for me so I couldn't even finish the book.
