    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....

    But it's a hell of a ride.
    Yes it's vulgar. Yes, to some people it is probably obscene, it sure is fun.
    I'm not a big Stones fan but I really enjoyed listening to this book. Never boring, always fun and just how did he remember all this stuff?
    Unvarnished and painfully truthful Keith does not make excuses he just tells the story of his life.
    Makes me want to sit down and drink a few rum and cokes on the beach with him and ask questions.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    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....

    CynNC says: "Captivating"
    "Perfect for those who enjoy historical fiction."
    Overall

    I do a lot of work that many would consider mindless tasks. For the past week I have listened to this book while gardening, cleaning house, driving and more.
    The characters are engaging and the premise intriguing. Some might find it simplistic though I would disagree.

  • The Help

    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.

    "It sucked--me right in"
    Overall

    I loved listening to this book. The different characters in different voices with dialect was an excellent way to keep the character's story lines seperate and distinct. It was a nice long book and took me several days to finish while I was working in the garden and doing dishes, laundry and such. The whole time I was thinking, "At least I'm not a black maid in the South in the 60s."
