    In K2: Life and Death on the World's Most Dangerous Mountain, Viesturs explores the remarkable history of the mountain and of those who have attempted to conquer it. At the same time he probes K2's most memorable sagas in an attempt to illustrate the lessons learned by confronting the fundamental questions raised by mountaineering - questions of risk, ambition, loyalty to one's teammates, self-sacrifice, and the price of glory.

    Bradley says: "Good book"
    "Great listen for climbers & non-climbers."
    Overall

    Everest gets all the hype but K2 has always been where climbers go to prove themself. Great narration of the history of triumphs and tradgedies on mountain climbings "holy grail".

    The prologue of the long-awaited conclusion to Robert Jordan's fantasy masterpiece. This selection features a bonus recording of Robert Jordan's widow and longtime editor, Harriet McDougal, discussing the process of continuing the Wheel of Time series after Jordan's death, and how they came to select Brandon Sanderson to carry the torch.

    Brent says: "Exactly what I expected, something extraordinary"
    "Wheel of Time lives on."
    Overall

    I am a huge wheel of time fan and was listening especially hard to see if I could spot any differences with Brandon Sanderson's writing and to tell the truth, other than a couple descriptions, I could not tell the difference. I am looking forward to the book release on the 27th and for those WoT fans who have not read any of Sanderson's work, I highly recommend his "Mistborn" trilogy which is also read by Michael Kramer who does the WoT audiobooks and is also available on Audible.com

    Story

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    Troy says: "Chapter and part breaks are incorrect"
    "Don't believe the hype"
    Overall

    After hearing several people rave about this series I had to give it a try and I really don't get what all the hype is about. I have listened to some 75 hours of a narrarator who you often cant understand what he is saying, This coupled with the endless references to characters genitals and thier frequent visits to prostitutes; not to mention grown men being encouraged to procreate with a 12 year old was pretty disturbing. The story itself has not progressed much since the end of book 1 and I dont plan on wasting anymore time with this series. I know it gets alot of hype but I dont see why. I guess if I was a 18-25 male it might be somewhat more appealing but I am not and it isn't.
