  • The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve

    • UNABRIDGED (24 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By G. Edward Griffin
    • Narrated By Mark Bramhall

    This classic expose of the Fed has become one of the best-selling books in its category of all time. Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story - which it really is, but it's all true.

    If you could sum up The Creature from Jekyll Island in three words, what would they be?

    Eyeopening, shocking, disquieting

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Creature from Jekyll Island?

    The explanation of how banking and the economy actually work.

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

    Mark's narration brought the concepts and information presented into clear focus.

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

    They really are out to get you.

    Any additional comments?

    This book has been on a shelf in my home for over 10 years and during that time I manged to read maybe the first 3 chapters. I'm so glad I found it on Audible and that it has been updated with information about the world's current economic situation. I've learned more about banking and the economy from this book than I did from my college economics and finance classes. Well worth the investment.

  • The Flight of the Silvers

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By Daniel Price
    • Narrated By Rich Orlow

    A thrilling genre-bending saga about six extraordinary people whose fates become intertwined on an Earth far different from their own. Without warning, the world comes to an end for Hannah and Amanda Given. The sky looms frigid white. The electricity falters. Airplanes everywhere crash to the ground. But the Givens are saved by mysterious strangers, three fearsome and beautiful beings who force a plain silver bracelet onto each sister' s wrist. Within moments, the sky comes down in a crushing sheet of light and everything around them is gone.

    Lisa says: "Glad I took a gamble"
    "The sisters made me want to stop reading"

    Two of the main characters of the story frustrated me so much with their stupidity, bickering and stubbornness that only because I am a compulsive finisher did I get to the end of the story.

  • Extinction Point: Extinction Point, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 36 mins)
    • By Paul Antony Jones
    • Narrated By Emily Beresford
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Emily Baxter’s dream life turns into a waking nightmare the day the red rain falls. Like a biblical plague, the scarlet downpour spreads a hideous virus that demolishes life in New York City, the nation, and the world. Suddenly the last soul in an annihilated metropolis - and possibly on Earth - the onetime newspaper reporter must learn to scavenge, survive...and plan for a future of utter solitude. Then, from far-flung Alaska, another living voice reaches out, and Emily grasps at her only glimmer of hope. But she may be even less alone than she thinks.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If a story in which the primary character is a naive dim bulb who repeatedly takes, what in my estimation are, idiotic, ignorant, short sighted actions, sounds interesting to you then this book might be right up your alley. Personally, I found myself repeatedly saying "idiot" out loud each time the central character did something ill advised or conceived and then had to deal with the consequences of her incompetence. In all fairness, I may not have fared any better in similar circumstances. Hopefully I'll never have to find out.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Extinction Point?

    Had the author written the story with a central character who had a bit more understanding of life in general, this could have a much more enjoyable and interesting book.
