    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "I Want a Sequel!!!"
    Overall

    I loved this book. It is out of the genre that I normally read (listen to), but it was well worth it. I would be thrilled if the author decided to write a sequel that takes up where this one ends... I so want to find out how the rest of this man's life went and to hear more antedotes from the nursing home. The author did an excellent job decribing the man's feelings while in the nursing home!!!

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    I could not tear myself away from this audiobook... sorry, honey and kids! The reader was excellent and the story beautifully written. I was brought to tears several times. I read The Kite Runner, now I have listen to this book. Now I await this author's next book.

    Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have seen their lives splinter around them. Michelle lies unconscious in a hospital bed after a night of suicidal violence. And Sean is forced to take on a thankless investigation into the murder of a scientist just inside the CIA's razor-wire fence near Williamsburg, Virginia. But they will need to team up again to stop a conspiracy of traitors operating in the shadow of the White House itself.

    R.E. Vazquez says: "not Baldacci's best"
    "1st Audio Book..."
    Overall

    This is my 3rd Sean and Michelle book, 1st by audio and I will definitely buy the next one (anyone know it is coming out) if the reader is the same. This gentleman was excellent! The book itself is great as this writer just gets better and better!
