Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib.

The liberal media machine did everything they could to keep this book out of your hands. Now, finally, Dangerous, the most controversial book of the decade, is tearing down safe spaces everywhere.

I have to say, I'm surprised Audible let this book onto their liberal database. I'm glad that Milo was somehow able to slip this one past the goalie! a must listen for anyone who is sick of the brainwashing of the social justice warriors and mainstream media. don't be sheeple! learn how to think, not what to think.

this book was pretty slow moving through the first half of the title. definately not Out of Shadows, but the production was still well done. if you are a fan of the Alien series, you will enjoy this title. it gives you an insight into what happened leading up to Aliens.

The Netflix series Making a Murderer quickly became a huge hit, with over 19 million viewers in the US in the first 35 days. The series left many viewers with the opinion that Steven Avery - a man falsely imprisoned for almost 20 years on a rape charge - was railroaded into prison a second time by a corrupt police force and district attorney's office. Viewers were outraged, and hundreds of thousands demanded a pardon for Avery. The chief villain of the series: Ken Kratz, the special prosecutor who headed the investigation and prosecution.

Arthur C. Clarke, it has often been pointed out, possess the best attributes of poet and scientist. Clarke is also a profound philosopher. This story is a rare example of sympathetic insight mingled with the best science-fiction traditions. It may shock or disturb you, but it will not leave you unmoved. One thing, however, is certain: it could have been written by no one else.

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

Where does 11-22-63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I had long since written off Stephen King books, but this one has made me rethink my position. Definitely one of the best King books in recent memory

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

The narrator took a little time to grow on me. By the end, I was totally invested.

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

It is too long to listen to in one sitting, but it definitely kept me coming back for more.

Any additional comments?

Unlike many other books about time travel, King really does a great job of closing the "paradox" loop. Without giving any spoilers, you won't be left scratching your head with the "what if you go back in time and killed your father" questions.
