I love listening to a good book read by a great narrator while driving or doing mundane tasks like housekeeping. Characters come alive!

    New York is the book that millions of Rutherfurd's American fans have been waiting for. A brilliant mix of romance, war, family drama, and personal triumphs, it gloriously captures the search for freedom and prosperity at the heart of our nation's history.

    Story

    Having been born and raised in New York City, the story intrigued me. Mark Bramhall does an excellent job, making the characters come alive. The novel spans generations, with a thread of love and family through more than three centuries. I enjoyed hearing about the history of the great city. Why not make this required reading in high schools throughout America?

    This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this compelling story set in Rome about 200 A.D. The narration was excellent, and the characters came to life. I couldn't believe the ending, though, it was a tremendous let down - at least for me.

    In this emotional debut, a New York executive, restless in his success, is sent to West Virginia,where a small-town girl and her son open his eyes to a richer life than hecould have imagined. On the surface, Charlie Burden and Natty Oakes could not be more different: she, the daughter of many generations of rural farmers; he, an executive at a multinational engineering firm. But in each other they find the new lease on life they both so desperately need.

    I thoroughly enjoyed most of this novel. As always, Mark Bramhall's narrating was outstanding, and the story itself was entertaining and interesting. But I didn't like the ending ... at all! It ruined the "Overall" experience for me.

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Story

    This book is wonderfully written and expertly narrated. The story takes place about 100 years ago, and the very real characters were from all over the western civilized world. World War I causes their lives to intermingle often in the sweetest of ways. I was disappointed when it ended, but am now into Book 2 of the trilogy and it's just as good.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I can't imagine a more enjoyable book. The narrators were more than excellent, the story riveting, and the time listening flew by. It's one of those "don't want it to end" books that I "couldn't put down." I have absolutely nothing but wonderful things to say about "The Help."

    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.

    Story

    This book tells the story of JFK's murder from a whole different perspective, as only Stephen King could. The narration is excellent, and the story will hold your attention until the end. Speaking of which, I didn't like the end of the story at all, but overall, it was a great read.

  • Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Kelly says: "Compelling"

    Story

    Dr. Alexander's articulate account of his "journey to heaven" while in a coma for 7 days is a must read! Heaven, God and such inanimate things are impossible to describe with mere mortal words, but he does an excellent job of coming quite close. As a neurosurgeon he was a huge skeptic; but after his vividly-remembered experience, he has no doubt but that heaven exists. Well-written, but could have been read by a more seasoned narrator.

    In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - a single mother, a lonely Japanese bachelor, and an isolated U.S. soldier....

    Story

    Okay, so the story held me for a while, because it's a great story. But because about halfway through the book I realized that the events in the first chapter occurred at the end of the book (or at least close to the end), I lost interest shortly thereafter, and abandoned it. I thought I was sure I knew how it ended, and the story no longer held my interest. I even realized that, perhaps, I didn't know how (when) it ended, and it could have been a big "surprise" ending past that part we'd heard about in the first chapter. But it wasn't worth my (very cherished driving time) any more, I wanted to move on to something new! And I would have liked to give the narration a score of 2-1/2, as it was neither good nor bad, but that choice wasn't available.
