  • The American

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 4 mins)
    • By Martin Booth
    • Narrated By Ralph Cosham
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla - Mr. Butterfly - for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous: mornings are spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafés, and evenings talking with his friend, the town priest, over a glass of brandy. Yet there are other sides to this gentleman’s life.... Part thriller, part character study, part drama of deceit and self-betrayal, The American shows Martin Booth at the very height of his powers.

    Ramon says: "Slow start but after a few pages your hooked.
    "The most action is found in the cover art"
    What would have made The American better?

    a little action please. less whoring.

    What do you think your next listen will be?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    boring, unable to do voices

    What character would you cut from The American?

    the main one

    Any additional comments?

    I am glad I didn't buy this on the BOGO--not worth it.

  • Space Vengeance: Scrapyard Ship, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Mark Wayne McGinnis
    • Narrated By L. J. Ganser
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Captain Jason Reynolds is back! In the third installment of the Scrapyard Ship sci-fi adventure series, Space Vengeance, Jason, his family, and The Lilly's crew face the impending destruction of their internal nano-devices. What's worse, what remains of the Craing fleet, some 1,500 warships, is back and headed straight toward the already decimated planets within Allied space. In what looks to be a one-way suicide mission, Jason must leave Nan and Mollie behind on Earth and out of harm's way.

    David says: "very engaging, not too weird!"
    "very engaging, not too weird!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, lots of action, and good characters. Believable aliens, although some are a bit outlandish. Why not.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Teardrop is my favorite because he saves the day, but can build a house too.

    Have you listened to any of L. J. Ganser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is good. Voices are distinguishable and varied. He does women well and even a young girl.

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

    The loss of some of the main characters was sad. Not as well developed as it could have been--I was sad but didn't cry (read sob my guts out) like when Haldir or Theoden died in LOTR.

    Any additional comments?

    The main problem with these books is they all end as cliffhangers--very annoying. I thought that this one, as the end of the introductory trilogy would really, you know, end, but it didn't. Dear Mr. McGinnis: your stories are good enough that you can end them and we will still read the next one. Pleeease stop the cliffhanger gimmick!

  • NOS4A2: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 41 mins)
    • By Joe Hill
    • Narrated By Kate Mulgrew
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Jacqueline says: "Finish to Start Excellent is Novel This"
    "creepy bad guy, 2 stories, when do they link up"
    Would you try another book from Joe Hill and/or Kate Mulgrew?

    probably from Kate, but I will wait a while to try Joe Hill

    What was most disappointing about Joe Hill’s story?

    I don't like creepy bad guys; I prefer CIA action to psycho-, socio-, sleazeballs.

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

    Her voices are good

    Do you think NOS4A2 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    wouldnt know, I didn't finish it.

    Any additional comments?

    If you like child killers and rapists, this is the book for you.

  • The Sum of All Fears

    • UNABRIDGED (38 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Tom Clancy
    • Narrated By Scott Brick

    Against all odds we have made it into the last half of the 1990s. The Cold War looks solved, Arabs and Jews are talking, confrontation is on the wane. In this new harmony, one discord -- what becomes of unemployed terrorists?

    Ray says: "Thoughts on The Sum of All Fears"
    "too long getting there"
    What did you love best about The Sum of All Fears?

    his plot is plausible and has proven somewhat prophetic

    Would you be willing to try another book from Tom Clancy? Why or why not?

    Yes, but he talks too much in the beginning of each book and doesn't get to the point and the action.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    stop using New York Yiddish question intonation for every character!!!

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

    Nobody really wants WWIII

    Any additional comments?

    Clancy is good, but you can skip much of the first 3/4ths and tune in at the end for the action and wrap up.
