    Story

    I found the story to be somewhat juvenile. As much about a middle aged, hairy, man with a lack of sexual self control, as about the crimes committed by members of the Sioux Nation. The reader was the best part.

    Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terrell McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor. But McCaleb's calm seas turn choppy when a story in the "What Happened To?" column of the LA Times brings him face-to-face with the sister of the woman whose heart now beats in his chest.

  • Black Elk Speaks: Being the Life Story of a Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux, The Premier Edition

    Widely hailed as a spiritual classic, this inspirational and unfailingly powerful story reveals the life and visions of the Lakota healer Nicholas Black Elk (1863–1950) and the tragic history of his Sioux people during the epic closing decades of the Old West. In 1930, the aging Black Elk met a kindred spirit, the famed poet, writer, and critic John G. Neihardt (1881–1973) on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

    Story

    My rating is based on the fact that as I am not a believer in mysticism, it was nearly a given I would not enjoy this book. I am very much interested in Native American history and culture, but simply could not get interested in the book.

    What a wonderful, wonderful book. One of the most enjoyable Audible books I have heard. The story is creative, hardly a weak moment in it (there is the odd lapse), but what really sets the book apart from others is the incredible reader. The man is divine. Absolutely superb. What a performance. If you listen, be prepared for a pleasurable & unforgettable experience.

    A newly minted graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1890, Dr. Thomas Parks heads to the big timber country of Puget Sound to practice trauma medicine. An hour after stepping off the boat, he's nearly crushed to death by a less-than-sure-footed mule and finds himself a patient rather than a physician. As he convalesces, he discovers that his host, a venerable physician friend of his father's, is running an elaborate medical scam, selling worthless concoctions nationwide, with enormous sales.

    Story

    My title says it all. I listened for two hours and decided I didn't need to keep on going, I had invested enough time. To date, the reader is the worst of the poor readers on Audible that I have heard. I'm happy to say that the great & very good readers far out number the bad ones.

    Edgar Award-winner Bruce DeSilva returns with Liam Mulligan, an old-school investigative reporter for a dying newspaper in Providence, Rhode Island. Mulligan knows every street and alley, every priest and prostitute, every cop and street thug. He knows the mobsters and politicians - who are pretty much one and the same. Inspired by a true story, Providence Rag finds Mulligan, his pal Mason, and the newspaper they both work for at an ethical crossroad.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Tremendous Series, great narration."

    Story

    This is THE most scary story I have listened to. DeSilva kept the tension high throughout the book, only letting it down when the listener couldn''t bear another moment of it. The pacing of the story is very good. Nary a dull moment to be heard. And the reader, well, if there is a better one around, I haven't heard him/her. After listening to dozens of Audible Books by other readers, eff Woodman has become my reader of choice. I will definitely be looking for more of his books. His reading was flawless. He had perfect diction, perfect timing, perfect gender voice imitation, perfect pitch, perfect Everything. He didn't miss a beat anywhere in the telling of this tale. His reading was absolutely masterful. Who ever selected Woodman to do the reading definitely chose the best person for the job.

    There are no negative comments I can make about this book. But potential listeners should expect nothing more than a simple story, well read, that is more likely to be enjoyed by kids between the ages of 9-16 than by adults.

    In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees when a young woman literally stumbles into him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes - and match him wit for wit. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern 20th-century woman proves a deft protégée and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective.

    I listened for about half an hour and then gave up. I couldn't stand the reader's voice a moment longer. I really shouldn't downgrade the story because I heard so little of it, so I withdraw my negative rating in that category.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Grupper brings every character alive. Not only are the accents wonderful to hear, but the attitudes of each comes through to the degree you are seeing them as well as hearing them. The story becomes true, the participants are real.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Indeed I would. Story & performance kept me involved the whole way. Couldn't wait to get back to it when I had to other things (like sleep!).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of American Assassin?

    Too many to mention


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Every single one of them.


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

    You bet.


    Any additional comments?
