    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lost World to be better than the print version?

    This was very good. For the great low price it was the best value so far for me. I wish I could find more books this good and this cheap!

    Noah Primeval is a speculative retelling of the beloved story of Noah for a new generation. In an ancient world submerged in darkness, fallen angels rule as gods, and breed giants and monsters. Mankind is enslaved to evil. Noah, a tribal leader, has been prophesied to bring an end to the rule of these "gods" and save humanity from coming destruction. But Noah's wife and son are captives of these dark forces.

    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    What would have made George Carlin Reads to You better?

    This guy used to be funny. This is just hateful ranting by a very vulgar and troubled mind. According to him if you are not from the worst parts of New York you are stupid sheep, but if you are mean and hateful and sinful you are hip and cool like him. What a shame, everybody is stupid but him. Everything good is bad and everything bad is good.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    thought this would be interesting but what a crock. This author makes too many contradictions and mistakes to be the truth. It's a sad version of a dull small town sermon. I feel insulted that he thought Christians are this stupid.

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    Richard Delman says: "A singular voice; a horrendous story."
    "Still Missing"
    Overall

    This book focuses solely on the awful abuse of the victim, without developing attachment to the victim, enough to make you sick and have nightmares. Awful, awful, awful

    Inspired by the classic silent film of 1919, this original audio play won the Independent Publishers Award in 1998 for best direct¿to-audio production. John De Lancie stars as a young poet who visits a fair one night with his friend and girlfriend. Entering Doctor Caligari¿s tent, they meet the mysterious Cesare, a kind of zombie, who is neither alive nor dead¿and who forecasts doom for our high-strung protagonist and his friends.

    Here, in 11 stories, a true memoir, five brand-new commentaries, and a linked horror story of Jack the Ripper by Ellison's great friend, the late Robert Bloch, the mesmerizing audio performance by the author provides in full measure the reason why Ellison has won Listen Up, Audio, and a shelf full of other awards, including investiture as one of the few Grand Masters of the literature of the fantastic. This one is the best yet.

    John says: "Yepper"
    "very odd but original"
    Overall

    Harlan reads his own work and that's always good. He always sounds a little unstable to me but it's a good kind of unstable if there is such a thing. It's a prickly kind of fun.

    It's Phantom of the Opera, Discworld style, when an aspiring singer and part-time witch wins a part in the big city opera, and quickly learns of a shadowy figure haunting the house. Now her sorceress companions Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg must come to her aid, before the fat lady sings her last rites!

    Glen Phipps says: "A Couple of Nights at the Opera"
    "great as always"
    Overall

    The story is a fun version of the phantom of the opera and Nigel Planer is a fantastic narrator. It's not a reading it is a great performance of a funny story.

    Stephanie Plum once again takes to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ, armed with attitude (not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and her untrustworthy .38) to find Kenny Mancuso, who recently left the army, inadvertently shot his best friend, and is on the run in violation of a bond.

    Susan says: "Fun Fun Fun"
    "fun series"
    Overall

    Lori Petty is perfect for these first 3 books. I wish she did them all.
