    Will Self reads from his introduction to Revelation, the final book of the Bible, which prophesises the ultimate judgement of mankind in a series of allegorical visions, grisly images, and numerological predictions. According to these, empires will fall, the 'Beast' will be destroyed, and Christ will rule a new Jerusalem. The introduction is preceded by a reading from the book by Richard Holloway, former Bishop of Edinburgh.

    Overall

    This was the biggest waste of money I ever spent at Audible. This guy is a worthless whiner. No preaching, no faith building. Its like going to a rotten church. I am studying Revelation right now so that is why I tried it. This is a total waste of money!!! Don't buy it!

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    Elaine says: "One of Nora's best in years"

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Story

    The plot line has been done over and over. That was the stale part as we have heard the story before. Bad guy switches sides and saves the day. It was cool as a common Scott Brick type of book and Scott brick can really read life into a story. But not really the best.

    If at audible your reading this please return my credit. Had to read book prior to getting married so I reads it my way. The real Les Parrott & Leslie Parrott are like espresso great public speakers that can deliver. The book has merit. The performance was like two day old pizza, some old Brit guy blathers on like his accent makes him important, no just grating, Sean Connery (Who has a Scottish accent) he ain't!

    George Gilder is one of the great technological visionaries, and "the man who put the 's' in telecosm" according to Telephony magazine. His long-awaited Telecosm is a bible of the new age of communications. Equal parts science story, business history, social analysis, and prediction, it is the one book you need to make sense of the titanic changes underway in our lives.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Litigators to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Audio books are better than going to the movies.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Litigators?

    The comment in court when the heart attack occurred.


    What about Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance did you like?

    He fit. The story flowed. He gave us the performance that made this story come alive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It made me want to drive. Usually it is a drag and draining, but books like this one set me free, make me relax in the worst traffic. I give grace to morons on the road, as I enjoyed the bliss of this book. You know those signs on the freeway that say tune here. They should broadcast this so people relax and calm down.


    Any additional comments?

    John Grisham books just get better.

    Tessa Lancaster's skills first earned her a position as an enforcer in her Uncle Teruo's Japanese Mafia gang. Then they landed her in prison for a crime she didn't commit. Now, three months after her release, Tessa's abilities have gained her a job as bodyguard for wealthy socialite Elizabeth St. Amant and her three-year-old son. But there's a problem or two... or three....

    What did you love best about Protection for Hire?

    I love reading her books as they are like the joy luck club letting us understand the Asian American world.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character is a martial artist, once part of the Japanese yakuza, but now a Christian.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Durante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am wondering if I am odd on this one, as the read was flowing and easy to listen to, but she was not Asian, or I could not hear it if she was. I felt like I was watching an old western where the Indians were Italian.


    If you could rename Protection for Hire, what would you call it?

    Thank you God for Christian writers who can write. No embarrassing points in the books that you will have to mute for kids.


    Any additional comments?

    I want more Camy Tang audio books as her books are great.
