    Now at last Keith Richards pauses to tell his story in the most anticipated autobiography in decades. And what a story! Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records in a coldwater flat with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones, building a sound and a band out of music they loved. Finding fame and success as a bad-boy band, only to find themselves challenged by authorities everywhere....

    Audio books don't get much better than this. Fascinating look at music legend's life - ups and downs. Seems very honest in the telling. Narration is spot on. KR comes across as much more than just a drugged up rocker. I enjoyed this as much as the Andre Agassi autobiography. Highly recommended!

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Patrick says: "Just an Incredible Story!"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    I'm by far not the first reader of this book who never played tennis and really didn't pay attention to pro tennis while growing up. But - this book is absolutely compelling from start to finish. One of the best I've listened to and I've been an Audible member for 6 years at 2 books a month... Agassi is a very interesting person with an extraordinary story. His honesty is fascinating. I hated to turn this one off between commutes. Can't recommend a book more highly. Very, very well done.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Overall

    I've been an Audible customer for many years and this gem is among a very small handful of books I consider the best. They just don't get much better than this one. Follett absolutely drew me in with his characters, sense of place and story. I enjoyed every single minute of this book and was disappointed when it finally ended. I have started his next book, World Without End. So far, another great read. Enjoy!

    This dramatic sequel to Jeff Shaara's best selling Rise to Rebellion continues his chronicle of the key characters of the American Revolution and animates some of the most compelling scenes in America's history: Washington's harrowing winter at Valley Forge, Benedict Arnold's tragic downfall, and the fiercely-fought battles at Trenton, Brandywine Creek, and Yorktown.

    Overall

    Absolutely outstanding. Not a dull moment. Highly recommended and the narrator is very good. Gave me a very strong appreciation for George Washington and other American patriots who literally risked everything, including their lives, for the Glorious Cause. I had forgotten how much in doubt the outcome of the Revolutionary War was until the French became our allies. Great history lesson.

    One of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain is a masterpiece that is at once an enthralling adventure, a stirring love story, and a luminous evocation of a vanished America in all its savagery, solitude, and splendor.

    M. Dunn says: "Cold Mountain (Unabridged)"
    "A Wonderful Story"
    Overall

    I read this novel about 5 years ago and enjoyed it immensely. This is just a wonderful story, rich with details - I often found myself completely swept away with the author's reading. One of my favorite books of all time.
