  • The Incrementalists

    The Incrementalists - a secret society of 200 people with an unbroken lineage reaching back 40,000 years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, and communicate with one another across nations, races, and time. They have an epic history, an almost magical memory, and a very modest mission: to make the world better, just a little bit at a time. Their ongoing argument about how to do this is older than most of their individual memories. Phil, whose personality has stayed stable through more incarnations than anyone else’s, has loved Celeste - and argued with her - for most of the last 400 years.

    I loved the voices, and the acting, but I really, really wanted to like the story, but I just didn't understand what was happening

  • I Am America (And So Can You!)

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Stephen Colbert
    • Narrated By Stephen Colbert

    Story
    (505)

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Ty says: "Funny, but disappointing."
    "Loved this listen!!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was so funny, I was very careful to go back if I missed even a few words. Had me laughing.


    What does Stephen Colbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is best listened to because you get to hear it read by the author, and for all those who like Stephen Colbert, as I do, it is treat, its like a personal performance of the book.


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

    Yes, but unfortunately, I did not have the time.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!!!

  • The End of the Affair

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 28 mins)

    Story
    (2396)

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Karen Downes says: "Colin whispers in my ear, and I melt"
    "Love Colin Firth as narrator"

    What about Colin Firth’s performance did you like?

    No extreme reaction to this book
