Many people, even Christians, deny the devil's power. John Ramirez doesn't have that luxury - he experienced the prince of darkness up close and personal. In the impoverished streets of the South Bronx, John Ramirez found "acceptance" from a family of witches and warlocks. These practitioners of dark arts trained him to be a high-ranking satanic priest - a story told in his first book, Out of the Devil's Cauldron. However, everything changed when he met the living Christ.

Don't waste your money on this heretic.

Gives more credit to the devil then any so called Christian should.

The whole book left me unsettled.

Don't waste your money or time.

Do your research on the author.

Read your Bible that's your best defense from the devil.

In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

This book was recommended to me be several people. The narrator drives me insane and I have no clue what is happening in the story. I listen to about thirty minutes all the while hoping it would get better.

Benton McCaleb and his band of bold-spirited cowboys have traveled long and hard to drive thousands of ornery cattle into Wyoming’s Sweetwater Valley. They’re in the midst of setting up a ranch just north of Cheyenne when a ruthless railroad baron and his hired killers try to force them off the land. Now, with the help of the Shoshoni Indian tribe and a man named Buffalo Bill Cody, McCaleb and his men must vow to stand and fight.

The narrator was ok at time he could get annoying the over all story was ok. I hated how the story would would progress and at times wouldn't fill in the blanks so you had to use your imagination which defeats the purpose of listening to book I want to be entertained I don't want to figure out what the author is up to. Plain and simple he doesn't compare to Louis L'Amour

General Stonewall Jackson was like no one anyone had ever seen. In April of 1862 he was merely another Confederate general with only a single battle credential in an army fighting in what seemed to be a losing cause. By middle June he had engineered perhaps the greatest military campaign in American history and was one of the most famous men in the Western World. He had given the Confederate cause what it had recently lacked: hope.

I,m related to Jackson and named after him. As a result this book has great meaning to me and makes me want to know more about this great man. Putting that aside you will struggle to find a better listen than this book. Great narrator and all around great story with infinite detail.
