Listen and be inspired by the soothing baritone of award-winning narrator Mike Vendetti as he reads George Samuel Clason's classic The Richest Man in Babylon. Unless you were born wealthy or hit the lottery, this audiobook can be your path to financial security and success. The parables set in ancient Babylon and originally published in 1926 are as applicable today as they were in ancient times.
I can't believe the book is so old, but yet the wisdom is still stand to 21th century. I'm glad I ventured on it.
The narrator is deserves five stars from me.
Imagine that you are a little boy. Your handsome father is dead, and each day your beautiful mother grows weaker from grief. The two of you have little money, and even less hope for the future. Would you want to give up, or can you be brave? Now a surprising message comes from England. You are heir to a title, a lordship. Soon, you will be on your way to live with a wealthy but grumpy old uncle, whom you have never met. But you are going to live with him in a castle! This is the story of Little Lord Fauntleroy.
I'm glad I ventured on it after I finished with The Lost Prince. Now I'm sort of a big fan of children Classic stories. Oh the narrator really did a great job to bring the story to life , and even more enjoyable.
The Lost Prince is the enchanting story of a young boy discovering his true destiny. Twelve-year-old Marco knows he is being trained for something, but he isn't sure what. All his life he has traveled with his father in secrecy, learning many languages and the ways of a gentleman, but forbidden to speak about their country of origin, Samavia. Samavia has been fraught with war for the last 500 years, ever since the prince mysteriously disappeared.
I love everything in it, I've never expected clsssic children story can be so engaging for adult like me. I'm venturing another by this author.
When the handsome Frederick Mackintosh offers to marry Aggie McLaren, she is certain 'tis greed or insanity that motivates him. Besides land and a chance at a chiefdom, she believes she has nothing to offer. She soon learns nothing could be further from the truth. Hope she thought long lost blooms with her husband's kindness, his honor, and his fierce determination to make their marriage and their clan a success.
I love the story, the twist and turn in the plot beyond my expectation, in short the story is unpredictable, so I just let myself to be carried off into the story. Fredrick is incredibly wonderful man, I fantasized to be loved so tenderly. This is my first with the author and also the narrator. Brad Wills had done it superbly with female voices, old man, and little children. I wonder how the heck this guy had done it all by himself.
Well overall the story is wonderful (sorry no spoilers). I long for another story that equally takes my heart out.

Determined to have his revenge and teach her a much-needed lesson, the earl decides that his best course of action is to seduce her....
This is my first with the author, and surprisingly I like the audiobook, I even laugh often and enjoy every bantering moment by the main characters. I love the author's writing style that explaining things in main characters POV, which is sometimes funny. I can't share anything that could lead to spoilers, so every historical romance fans out there should listen for yourself and see for your own opinion.
Michael Page is really really good, his sexy rumbling voice had hooked me from the first page, it reminds me of Timothy Dalton from Jane Eyre.
Self-made billionaire Nathan Trainor feels restless and disillusioned. His company may be thriving, but he can't find a woman who sees him for more than his wealth. With his love life in the red, he meets two other billionaire bachelors at the ultra-exclusive Bellwether Club. The three of them make a wager of the heart: they must find women who love them for who they are, not their money.
At the beginning I was reluctant to finish the audiobook, because I think it's just another unworthy romance with steamy sex scene through the entire audiobook AND OMG the language so disgusting that bothering me, so I kept fast forward, but then I found out something in the story that arouse my respect for Chloe, and later for Nathan.
At the end I had to admit the story is quiet good sans the sex scene, and the narrator has done very good job. And I'm looking forward to venture another two of the series. I'm eager to find out how Luke Archer and Gavin Miller find their true love and also winning their wager.

When her parents and twin brother die within weeks of each other, Alicia and her younger sister are left in the hands of an uncle who has brought them all to financial and social ruin. Desperate to save her family from debtor's prison, Alicia vows to marry the first wealthy man to propose. She meets the dashing Lord Amesbury, and her heart whispers that this is the man she is destined to love, but his tainted past may forever stand in their way.
I can't say enough how lucky I am to find this audiobook, even though this is my first with the author, but she can plotting such a wonderful storyline, and for the record no need steamy sex scene to make the story so unforgettable. Even I need to start listening again because somehow during my chore I missed some points.
The Narrator does the job so well, even though at the beginning I got the creepy impression as if she narrated some kind of Jane Eyre story. Her voice sounds mysterious, but then I can manage and adjust myself throughout the story.
All in all the audiobook is credit worthy.

In Why Not Me? Kaling shares her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether it's falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in lonely places, attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever, or, most important, believing that you have a place in Hollywood when you're constantly reminded that no one looks like you.
The old saying said not all that glitters is gold.
After listening to this I will never believe whatever I see on TV. Everything that Hollywood make us believe and see it as truth should always reconsider discreetly
As a woman I always envy that other women are more beautiful. I never consider myself pretty or beautiful, but while listening to this audiobook, I've got the insight that there are more than just being beautiful and famous, beauty and fame that TV shows or magazines perceive are only skin deep.
I felt ashamed to myself, and I thank the author for sharing her it to us. I also need desperately sharing this to my teenage daughter.
Audie Award, Humor, 2016. In Furiously Happy, number-one New York Times best-selling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.
I just finished the audiobook and found some insight of a person with multiple mental illness. I can't believe myself laughing at most of the audiobook. This is my first (audio)book with a very unique content and oddly I like it.
