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

    I would recommend the book as the book is well written and tends to have you guessing as to what will happen next


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A King's Ransom?

    When Eramus finally showed emotion at the lost of friend Mr. Mcintier


    Which character – as performed by David Pittu – was your favorite?

    Dan has become my favorite, he is now torn between doing what is right and what needs to be done. With the formula of the serum in his head he slowly collects the parts needed to reform the serum. But he is also struggling how to let the family know it needs to used.


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

    The loss of William Mcintier


    Any additional comments?

    When the story ended I actually yelled out "NO" because it ended in a cliff hanger that the others books did not give. This is the first of the series to do that and I LOVE IT!!!! I am ready for the next book in the series.

    Amy and Dan find themselves in a new global race but this time, everything’s different. Those closest to them might be working for the enemy, and Amy and Dan are forced to ask themselves how far they’re willing to go to save the kidnapped Cahills. How much can you risk when there’s no one to trust?

    Would you listen to 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers again? Why?

    There is so much going on in the story that it when you listen to the other books in the series it will make you come back and wonder how they came to those conclusions.


    What other book might you compare 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers to and why?

    Book 8 in the 39 clues series is comparable to this book in the way certain elements interfered with the progress of the cahills. This gives this new series a tie in with the previous series.


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

    He brings emotions to play into the story as its being read. His tone is not that of someone reading lazily. he makes you want to know what is going to happen next and make you re-listen to part to understand other parts that have come up.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made want to get the next book in the series to see where it would lead the cahill team next.

    Fourteen-year-old Amy Cahill and her younger brother, Dan, thought they could return to their regular lives when they found the 39 Clues that safeguard their family’s great power. But they were wrong. Powerful enemies – the Vespers – have been waiting in the shadows. And they’ll stop at nothing to grab the Clues. Four powerhouse authors unite to expose the 500-year-old secret struggle between the Cahills and the Vespers. The Vespers are rising . . . and the world is in jeopardy.

    Gordon Wood's wondrous accomplishment here is to bring these men and their times down to earth and within our reach, showing us just who they were and what drove them. In so doing, he shows us that although a lot has changed in two hundred years, to an amazing degree the virtues these founders defined for themselves are the virtues we aspire to still.

    A. Ware says: "Not as informative as I'd hoped for"
    "What a waste of a credit!"
    Overall

    Avoid this book at all possible! I wish i didnt even have to give it 1-star. I ordered this book to learn more about the founding fathers except what i got was a tearing down of the founding fathers. The author, clearly borrowing from other authors, could not form a single clear and new thought of his own. Yes, the founding fathers were human after all but to berate them to the point that their accomplishments are so minor to their imperfections. I totally regret this ordering this drivel. If i could get my credit back I would!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Mark says: "Front Seat on History"
    "A pivotal year..."
    Overall

    Having never read (yet) Mr. McCullough's John Adams, this look at our fight for freedom forces the listener to question why some of the things happened as they did. Mr. McCullough use of the little known officers and soldiers allows us to fill in what has been missing since we learned about the revolution in school. Great listen, will definitely add the John Adams book to my library in the future.
