    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. The story itself was novel (for me, anyway), and well written. I love a book that really gets me invested in the characters and between Sanderson and Andrews, this story was really brought to life. Andrews' narration was exemplary. As this is the start of a series, I really hope he reads for the next book, as well. I usually listen to books while running and I found myself listening to this one also while driving, cooking, cleaning...I couldn't walk away from it. Very enjoyable read and I would highly recommended it.

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Story

    A great listen. This was a very intriguing book I listened to while running. I'm very happy to say it inspired me and brought many a smile to my face during my runs. At times, McDougall stops in the middle of a story, to tell another story which helps provide further background and detail to the original story. Sometimes I forgot there was an original, unfinished story to begin with until he returned to it. Of course, part of this could have been from the fact that I was running and getting tired. Either way, I got so much enjoyment out of it the first time, I will listen to this book again and suggest you do, too.
