    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story

    This book is a romance novel. It was classified by Audible as a mystery/thriller but it most definitely is not. I've listened to worst books but I's simply not into romance novels.

    Story

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Story

    This is one of King's best novels. I avoided the book for a while because it just didn't seem that it could be that interesting. I was wrong, the book is very well researched and written. The narrator was excellent.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Amazon Customer says: "End of one of my favorite fantasy series ever."

    Story

    This book was a worthy end to the Wheel of Time. The vision of Robert Jordan and written by Brandon Sanderson, this book sewed up all of the numerous threads that were everywhere in this story. The narration was great.

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"

    Story

    What is about the thriller genre that makes every lousy writer want to write a thriller? To say this book stinks is an insult to the hundreds of thrillers that only stink. This audiobook even uses an echo chamber effect when the narrator announces a new chapter. This is on top of using awful music to mark the transitions.

    Do not waste your time. Your time on earth is limited so don't waste it.

    In Killing Rain, Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which needs an operator who can remove 'problems' in Asia, and a new partner: Dox, the ex-marine sniper and party animal first introduced in Rain Storm. He also has a new hope, that by using his fearsome talents in the service of something good, he might atone for all the lives he has already taken.

    Story

    The character that was developed in the first two John Rain novels has completely disappeared from view. Brian Nishii, the narrator in the first two books, brought John Rain alive.This narrator simply does not become John Rain. McConnohie is simply some guy reading a book out loud. The story is pretty good but cannot overcome the narrator.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Story

    Most bad books you simply put down. But this book, "The Gray Man" was so bad that I listened as if it was truly an artful parody of a thriller. It keep reaching new highs in being ridiculous. The narrator sounded exactly like Ted Night (the judge in the movie Caddyshack) who died in 1986. Don't say that you weren't warned.

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.
