  • The End of Faith

    Here is an impassioned plea for reason in a world divided by faith. This important and timely work delivers a startling analysis of the clash of faith and reason in today's world. Harris offers a vivid historical tour of mankind's willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs, even when those beliefs are used to justify harmful behavior and sometimes heinous crimes.

    Great book, good ideas. Wish Sam Harris had read it himself. The narrator doesn't seem to be able to inflect and give proper emphasis to Sam's words.

  • The Vintage Caper

    The story begins high above Los Angeles, at the extravagant home and equally impressive wine cellar of entertainment lawyer Danny Roth. Unfortunately, after inviting the Los Angeles Times to write an extensive profile extolling the liquid treasures of his collection, Roth finds himself the victim of a world-class wine heist.

    James H. Breda says: "Tres Bon"
    "Definitely not the Mayle we've come to expect"
    Overall

    This book is like grocery store sushi, OK if you need a fix, but in the end bland and disappointing and leaves you wondering why you bothered. Hopefully Mayle will rediscover the inspiration of his earlier books before dumping another of these on us.

  • Outlander

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Lulu says: "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"
    "What a bore"
    Overall

    I am approaching 200 audiobooks, like many books others don't seem to enjoy and generally enjoy highly rated books, but am at a complete loss to understand what other raters and reviewers find so compelling about this one. This book should have been abridged by its editor in the first place and saved us at least 2/3 of the 32+ hours of sheer boring nothingness that comprises most of the story. And that is to say nothing of a, for a lack of a better word, dumb (stupid) premise upon which the entire story is based. Maybe I missed something, but I can suspend my disbelief with the best of them and listen to some pointless fiction for entertainment, but this is one that can be skipped entirely without having missed a thing. I should have turned it off 6 hours in as I started to realize this...
