  • Drunk with Power

    • ORIGINAL (46 mins)
    • By Margaret Cho

    Story
    (10)

    Margaret Cho has a way of disarming her audience, dismantling preconceptions, and delivering punchlines that sting with wit and veracity. She derives much of her material from her upbringing as a second generation Korean American in San Francisco.

    Jo says: "Warning! I nearly crashed my car over this one"
    "Loved it!!"
    Overall

    I have always been a fan of Margaret Cho and this was another of her great works. I recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor.

  • Memoirs of a Geisha

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 41 mins)

    Story
    (951)

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    Stephanie says: "Best Book in a while"
    "Wonderful book!"
    Overall

    I loved every bit of this book. I believe listening to it on audio enhanced the story. I went into the story thinking it was true, and came out wanting it to be true. It was well narrated and a truly great, great story. It had everything I look for in a book. It was very well rounded and lacked nothing. I recommend it to everyone.

  • Pimsleur Quick and Simple Chinese Mandarin for English Speakers

    Understand and speak Chinese Mandarin starting with these eight quick and simple audio lessons. You're not just learning "phrases" with the Pimsleur Method, you're acquiring essential, conversational Chinese Mandarin.

    Logan/Lucas Griswold says: "Terrific!"
    "Good beginning language tool."
    Overall

    It was a little hard to jump into this book because I had already had previous Chinese courses, the pronunciation and order of teaching sentences made it a little bit harder for my beginning/intermediate stage. I recommend this to those who are starting out for the first time with no prior Chinese language experience, or to those who are in the advanced learning stages as a review, this is an excellent learning tool.

    The men and women honored in Tom Brokaw's The Greatest Generation speak in this collection of letters from and about the Depression and World War II.

    Sean says: "Not for everyone"
    "Great book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this audible book very much and despite the grating voice of Tom Brokaw, he came out with what turned out to be a wonderful and touching book. A great read to and from work.

  • Fast Food Nation

    Story
    (164)

    To a degree both engrossing and alarming, the story of fast food is the story of postwar America. Fast Food Nation is a groundbreaking work of investigation and cultural history that may change the way America thinks about the way it eats.

    Bruce says: "Should be required reading for all"
    "Always a great book"
    Overall

    We listened to this book on our drive down the west coast. Very informative. I enjoyed every minute of this book. I would recommend this book to anyone.

  • New Spring: The Wheel of Time Prequel

    Story
    (1310)

    For three days battle has raged in the snow around the great city of Tar Valon. In the city, a foretelling of the future is uttered. On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, a child is born, an infant prophesied to change the world. That child must be found before he can be killed by the forces of the Shadow.

    H. Brown says: "Well done!"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I have listened to many audible books before this and wasn't impressed with the narrator's voice, it droned on and took away from the story. Also a good point to make is that, like a couple of Jordan's previous books where he spends half the book recounting the previous book, he has devoted this entire book to the characters from before the first book...eight books later. He really needs to stay on track; it was hard to stay focused on the book. I listened to it while exercising and driving to and from work. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who has already read or heard his previous books from this Wheel of Time series. The content does not give you anything new. Wait until the next comes out.
