    The Two Towers is the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic saga, The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship has been forced to split up. Frodo and Sam must continue alone towards Mount Doom, where the One Ring must be destroyed. Meanwhile, at Helm’s Deep and Isengard, the first great battles of the War of the Ring take shape. In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien’s great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe - hobbits, elves, and wizards - spring to life. Rob Inglis’ narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

    What did you love best about The Two Towers?

    The choice of Rob Inglis to narrate the book was perfect. He sings the songs well, and it is easy to follow as characters change, and as the plot twists and turns.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is a timeless tale that I enjoyed reading when I was younger, but never finished. I really enjoyed listening to the exciting parts without all the graphic violence, many of todays writings have. It kept my interest throughout the entire book.


    Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

    Sam - He went from a servant, almost a simpleton to a hero in the story. The way Rob portrayed this character was spot on. The development was perfect.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend the entire series. I will probably listen to it again in a year or so.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    What made the experience of listening to The Innocent: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    They audible experience was perfect! The female charactors were female, the male charactors were male and it was easy to get completely emmersed in the tale.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nikki Vance, she is a cop that was completely believable, her charactor was the glue between the other two pivotal charactors (Roby and Julie) who were both extraordinary
    in thier respective roles. She was the "pepper in the gumbo", by adding spice to the entire story.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    I thought it was riveting.


    Any additional comments?

    Cant wait for the next one.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What did you love best about 11-22-63?

    I really enjoyed the plot, the characters, and the way the this story progressed. I thought it was very well thought out and took me on a very nice adventure.


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

    There is a point, no a couple of times in this book that really have your complete attention, you CAN NOT stop. It was wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    I was less than thrilled with the love interest, it seemed to get in the way sometimes.

    Distinguished historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough tells one of the greatest American stories in this stirring audio adaptation of Truman - a compelling, classic portrait of a life that shaped history.

    I thought it was a great tale. I thought it was well written and was incredibly informative. I always thought of Harry Truman as one of my favorite presidents, and this shed light on many facets that I had no knowledge of. A really great read.
