    Chicago, 2064: Talon Avalon is a timecaster-one of a select few peace officers who can operate a TEV, the Tachyon Emission Visualizer, which records events (most specifically, crimes) that have already happened. With crime at an all-time low, Talon has little to do except give lectures to school kids and obsess about his wife's profession as a licensed sex partner... until one of her clients asks Talon to investigate a possible murder.

  • The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor

    Story
    (388)

    At 6:00 a.m. on the morning of October 3, 2009, Combat Outpost Keating was viciously attacked by Taliban insurgents. The 53 U.S. troops, having been stationed at the bottom of three steep mountains, were severely outmanned by nearly 400 Taliban fighters. Though the Americans ultimately prevailed, their casualties made it one of the war's deadliest battles for U.S. forces. And after more than three years in that dangerous and vulnerable valley a mere 14 miles from the Pakistan border, the U.S. abandoned and bombed the camp.

    Ryan says: "Good, could have been great."

    What did you love best about The Outpost?

    The book drew you in by letting you know who the soldiers were and the made you cry that so many brave and incredible men died for our country.


    What other book might you compare The Outpost to and why?

    Any Historical war book. First book on Afghanistan that I have heard about.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Shapiro’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could give The Outpost a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Heartbreak valley for the Brave Americans of Outpost Keating.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have loved ones going to Afghanistan I would listen upon their return this will just heighten the worry.

    James A. Garfield may have been the most extraordinary man ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. But the shot didn’t kill Garfield. The drama of what hap­pened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in tur­moil.

    Melinda says: "Marvelous, Magnificent, Millard"

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "One of the best book I ever"

    Which character – as performed by Edward Herrmann – was your favorite?

    Mr. Louis Zamparini


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    A truly fantastic book that if you have anyone in the military you should listen to it and remember the sacrifices that are made.
