    Great performance by the narrator. I'd listen to anything he reads after hearing this one. The story was great if you are a Star Wars fan which I am. A couple of points where things were a bit obvious or left hanging but it's Star Wars so we aren't expecting to change the world except through ticket sales. It was entertaining and that's what I was after. If you are after the same thing and you enjoy the series pick it up.

    At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, the convicted killers on E Block await their turn to walk the Green Mile and keep a date with the electric chair. Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working as a guard on the Mile, but he's never met anyone like John Coffey.

    Story

    My only other Steven King experience was The Shining. I'm not usually into thrillers such as The Shining even though it was a great book. As a result I've always avoided Steven King's books. I tried The Green Mile and found it to be amazing. Starts a little slow but gets better and better as it wraps up in a a great ending. A great reminder that life is amazing and fragile and will help you appreciate the value of those you care about. The performance is a true compliment to a great book.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

    Story

    I was so grateful for so much of what Ayn Rand wrote in this book. It was a perfect pairing with The Fountainhead. The writing is amazing, the characters engaging, and the narration is great. The recording was bad and if you are a new listener then you might try the Scott Brick version. The Hurt version was great though and I was able to get past the bad audio after only an hour. I can absolutely understand why this book has sold more copies than the Bible. I'll probably try to get a hard copy now to keep in my library and highlight great passages. Don't think about it just listen to it.

    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.

    This is easily the best audiobook I've heard. The performances are perfect and the story is great. It easily jumped into my all time favorites list for a book and the audiobook was perfect. I enjoyed the movie even though not typically a fan of most "chick flicks". The audiobook is better.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Entertaining. The narrator does a descent job. The story is a bit predictable and never became quiet as action packed as I was expecting but I was still entertained and it kept me wanting to listen. Overall I'd go with better than average. I picked it up so I could see where Harry Bosch started and to learn more about that character it was great.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Story

    This book started off with a lot of interest and I thought it would dive deeply into Lincoln's assassination. Turned out to be more a monolog of the civil war and was interesting but unexpected. In the end what I was intrigued to learn about never materialized and the book ended as somewhat of a let down. It might have been a bit more entertaining had a professional narrator been involved.

    Treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Delaware when they are shocked to discover a World War II German U-boat. Inside, they find a bottle taken from Napoleon's "lost cellar." Fascinated, the Fargos set out to find the rest of the collection. But another connoisseur of sorts has been looking for the bottle they've just found.

    C. Johnson says: "A little bit National Treasure..."

    Overall

    Good entertaining book. Descent adventure with history and myth mixed into treasure hunting. If you're just looking for something fun it's worthwhile.
