    A brutal warrior, Kratos is a slave to the gods of Olympus. Plagued by the nightmares of his past and yearning for freedom, the Ghost of Sparta would do anything to be free of his debt to the gods. He is on the verge of losing all hope when the gods give him one last task to end his servitude. He must destroy Ares, the god of war. But what chance does a mere mortal have against a god?

    I have listened to this book multiple times and I have never even played the game! I love the narration by Stephen Hoye and the storyline itself. It is a wonderful light listen while going on about your day. I highly recommend it!!

    Story

    By the time James Frey enters a drug and alcohol treatment facility, he has so thoroughly ravaged his body that the doctors are shocked he is still alive. Inside the clinic, he is surrounded by patients as troubled as he: a judge, a mobster, a former world-champion boxer, and a fragile former prostitute. To James, their friendship and advice seem stronger and truer than the clinic's droning dogma of How to Recover.

    Story

    While i understand the controversy over the author's failure to note exaggeration/falsification initially when releasing the book, I don't think that takes anything away from the brilliance of this book. The story is a wonderful look inside the life and mind of someone suffering from addiction. It portrays the characters and addicts, not as lifeless, morally inept monsters, but as the confused and struggling individuals they are. I personally believe this book should be required reading and survive the test of time to become an American classic.

    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    Story

    this was a wonderfully written and performed account of the life and theological ideology of Bonhoeffer. As someone who studied some of Bonhoeffer's writings and Theology in Seminary, I was very impressed with the historical, cultural, and familial context the author delineated beside Bonhoeffer's ideas. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

    Story

    This was my first book in the Oregon files series and i very much enjoyed it. Scot brick did an excellent job narrating and the stoey was very exciting. The plot slightly stretched reality a bit too far so I couldn't give it 5 stars but still a good listen.

    Genghis Khan was the greatest conqueror of all time, who, at his peak, ruled an empire that stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the Caspian Sea. His conquests are the stuff of legend, his tomb a forgotten mystery. Until now. A mysterious Mongolian harbors a dream of restoring the conquests of his ancestors, and holds a dark secret about Genghis Khan that just might give him the wealth and power to make that dream come true.

    Not my favorite cussler story. It was okay but i found myself getting bored a lot. For diehard cussler fans it is another chapter in the dirk pitt story but not an overly memorable one.

    A Japanese cargo ship cruises the eastern Atlantic near the Azores- when it bursts into flames. A gang of pirates speeds to take advantage of the disaster- when their boat explodes. What is happening in that part of the world? As Kurt Austin, Joe Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA(r) Special Assignments Team rush to investigate, they find themselves drawn into the extraordinary ambitions of an African dictator, the creation of a weapon of almost mythical power, and an unimaginably audacious plan to extort the world's major nations. Their penalty for refusal?

    When the Imperial prison barge Purge - temporary home to 500 of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels, and thieves - breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a star destroyer found drifting, derelict, and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back - bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine.

    Story

    As a huge Star Wars fan, I read the overview and excitedly started listening to this book. Midway into it, the story just becomes ridiculous. It is atavistic and peurile writing at its worst. It was just plain stupid. The author disgraces the otherwise exemplary universe the Star Wars series has created.
