  • Notes from the Universe: New Perspectives from an Old Friend

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 25 mins)
    • By Mike Dooley
    • Narrated By Mike Dooley

    The Universe is here to remind listeners that they are in control. To have the life they desire, all they have to do is ask. The secret to manifesting change is not focusing on the "how", but instead the end result: the kind of life listeners want. Then, once they are truly focused, the Universe will conspire on the listener's behalf.

    David says: "Wonderful"
    "From Trite to Inane"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I could not stand to listen for more than fifteen minutes as the silly, insipid, annoying, trite one liners got under my skin. I thought I would rather listen to finger nails scratching a blackboard.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably not this author's other book.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He wrote it. That was a detraction enough.

    What character would you cut from Notes from the Universe?

    The author and narrator.

    Any additional comments?

    Can I get my money back?

  • Confessions

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Sasha Campbell
    • Narrated By Jennifer Kidwell, Simi Howe
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Sasha Campbell’s sizzling debut follows Nikki Truth, a radio talk show host who has no trouble dishing out relationship advice on the air, yet can’t seem to follow that advice in her own life. With Nikki’s marriage on the rocks and her husband overseas, her best friend Trinette urges her to seek happiness elsewhere. But once Nikki realizes she’s not ready to move on, she may have already lost her husband for good.

    ann coleman says: "Nice Surprise!!"
    "Not listenable"
    Would you try another book from Sasha Campbell and/or Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?

    Not if it was a similar attempt to distort the English language. The dialogue was an overt attempt to present ghetto- like circumstances but did not enhance the story.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Sasha Campbell again?


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ’s performance?

    I'm not sure if they were intolerable or the dialogue made them sound that way.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can't say.

  • The First Deadly Sin

    • UNABRIDGED (24 hrs and 11 mins)
    • By Lawrence Sanders
    • Narrated By Marc Vietor
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    One of the most popular suspense novels of all time. A well-dressed man stalks the high-class neighborhoods of New York City. He is armed with an ice axe. His victims are strangers. And one cop, Captain Ed Delaney must solve a series of bizarre, gruesome murders that defy logic or method. This shocking story has captured the imaginations of millions like no other modern thriller.

    Parusski says: "Evening with an old friend!"
    "Never Ending"
    Would you try another book from Lawrence Sanders and/or Marc Vietor?

    I don't think so.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Lawrence Sanders? Why or why not?

    His dialogue is too wordy with much detail on extraneous characters.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't think I had a favorite scene.

    Do you think The First Deadly Sin needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No it needs a shorter book.

  • The Battle of Bretton Woods: John Maynard Keynes, Harry Dexter White, and the Making of a New World Order

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By Benn Steil
    • Narrated By Philip Rose

    When turmoil strikes world monetary and financial markets, leaders invariably call for "a new Bretton Woods" to prevent catastrophic economic disorder and defuse political conflict. The name of the remote New Hampshire town where representatives of 44 nations gathered in July 1944, in the midst of the century's second great war, has become shorthand for enlightened globalization.

    James says: "Fascinating!"
    "Dry history"
    Would you try another book from Benn Steil and/or Philip Rose?

    This book was OK but the narrator was staccato and hard to listen to. The book could have focused more on Bretton Woods and not skip around chronologically.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Philip Rose?


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

  • In the Woods

    • UNABRIDGED (20 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Tana French
    • Narrated By Steven Crossley
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Barbara says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"
    "Disappointing ending"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Too much dialogue and a meandering story that does not answer the the main question.

    Was In the Woods worth the listening time?

    not really.

  • God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Christopher Hitchens
    • Narrated By Christopher Hitchens
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    ben capozzi says: "...Though Hitchens Is!"
    "Better read than heard"

    An excellent book that convincingly proves there is no god. More importantly it shows why religion is at the root of much of the world's problems.

    It is a shame that the author chose to read the book. He does not hold his volume constant making it extremely difficult to hear many of the words, especially at the end of sentences.

  • Dark Side of the Moon: A Dark-Hunter Novel

    • ABRIDGED (4 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Sherrilyn Kenyon
    • Narrated By Maggi-Meg Reed

    Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks until she gets a lead on the biggest story in town: The Seattle Slayer. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a tip on the latest rash of killings. Instead, she gets a story about the mayor feeding citizens to a ring of vampires. Yeah, just another day in her life.

    Amazon Customer says: "Abridged? Butchered!"
    "a full length comic book"

    This book should have been labeled a comic book in the genre of the Fantastic Four. I would not recommend it to anyone interested in a real fiction novel.

  • The Final Detail

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Harlan Coben
    • Narrated By Jonathan Marosz

    Myron Bolitar, sports agent and reluctant sleuth, is happily basking in the Caribbean sun with a beautiful woman he hardly knows. Interrupting this bliss, Win, his loyal but morally questionable sidekick, arrives to tell him that Esperanza, Myron's best friend and partner at MB SportsReps, has been arrested for the murder of a fallen baseball star and Bolitar client.

    Lia says: "Great book"
    "The Final Detail"

    I always enjoy Harlan Coben and this book is as good as any previous.

  • I Am Charlotte Simmons

    • UNABRIDGED (31 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Tom Wolfe
    • Narrated By Dylan Baker

    Dupont University: the Olympian halls of learning housing the cream of America's youth, the roseate Gothic spires and manicured lawns suffused with tradition....Or so it appears to beautiful, brilliant Charlotte Simmons, a sheltered freshman from North Carolina, who has come here on full scholarship. But Charlotte soon learns, to her mounting dismay, that for the upper-crust coeds of Dupont, sex, Cool, and kegs trump academic achievement every time.

    Eric says: "Decadence through the eyes of a ?good girl?"
    "I Am Charlotte Simmons"

    I have never felt compelled to review a book before now. Charlotte Simmons is long, tedious, boring and makes one ask "why did I listen to this". Thomas Wolfe thinks he is clever with his choice of words but uses words such as "insouciant" repetively until you start counting them. His names for sexual body parts are asinine. Avoid the full length version at all cost.

  • The Vagina Monologues

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr and 45 mins)
    • By Eve Ensler
    • Narrated By Eve Ensler

    The Vagina Monologues is a moving, poignant and often hilarious play, which celebrates female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Originally drawn from a collection of interviews conducted by Eve Ensler, the Obie Award-winning play gives voice to some of the most intimate, rarely shared fantasies and fears of women from all walks of life.

    Colleen says: "The Vagina Monologues"
    "The Vagina Momolgues (unabridged)"

    This is one of the worst audiobooks I've ever listened to. I did not finish it which I was the first time after more than 100 previous books. It's just blather.
