    If you think you know George Washington, think again. This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It's a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And, of course, the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Being George Washington the most enjoyable?

    The book isn't a dry regurgitation of historical facts. The facts are there. But the story is brought to life due to the real like like reading of the book. You feel as if you are there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked most was how Washington was really just any man. Yet he wasn't He made choices that lead him to where he was. He could have told his mother he was going to leave with his brother. But he did what he knew was right. He obeyed his mother.
    He could have said no to Adams and others and not taken the charge of the Continental army, but he did so. And he did so humbly.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The death bed scene with Washington.You really get to understand just how old and weak he had become. The strong, tall man was now reduced. But he died the same humble man he had always been...


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

    Yes, I hated having to leave it. The more I heard the more I wanted to know what would happen next. Even though I knew much of the history already.

  • Stalin: History in an Hour

    Arguably no person in history had such a direct and negative impact on the lives of so many as Joseph Stalin. Under the Red Tsar terror knew no limits, it did not discriminate; no one was safe, no institution, no single town or village was immune. Yet, following his death in 1953, Stalin was deeply mourned. He had "received the country with a wooden plough, and left it with a nuclear missile shield." And no-one else, some claimed, could have led the Soviet Union to victory in the Second World War.

    I get it. "History in an hour". But it was so rushed, so glossed over key points... I ended up screaming at the book more than enjoying it.

    John Carter and the Giant of Mars is part of the famous Barsoom science fiction series, written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Co-written with his son, John Coleman Burroughs, it follows the story of the adventurous Carter and the princess he loves, Dejah Thoris. As the book opens, the two of them are attacked, and Dejah is carried away, leaving Carter to wonder whether he will ever see her again. He calls on his friend Tars Tarkas to help, but their journey to recover the princess is an eventful and sometimes dangerous one.

    I love the John Carter series. The story is very original.
    But with the last few books. as with this one. You can tell Burrough's is getting tired of JC.
    Still loved to hear the story. But this one is my least favorite

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    Loved the story. The book was awesome...
    But what the hell is Dotrice doing in this one? Not only did he change voices in the last book but he also changes voices from chapter to chapter. Drove me crazy when he changed Stannis's voice from chapter to chapter.
    But over all a good read.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Story

    Everyone keeps thinking that Dotrice didn't do book four. He did! And it stinks. He changed almost all the voices to the characters. The story was great but the audio just makes me grit my teeth. Like Dull Ed going from sounding like an idiot to sounding like a whiskey drinking old man. It just stinks!
    Lets hope book 5 is better.

    Ugh, what a let down. I mean really. I won't ruin the story for anyone. But Jack, really! And the husband??? And nothing but a damn phone call!?!?!
