New American Standard Bible audiobook cover art

I love my bible...

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

The NASB is a great bible translation. The narration is of good quality. Unfortunately audible divided the audio presentation is such a way it is nearly impossible to find a particular book or chapter in the presentation.

Unless you intend to use this as a listen from beginning to end don't get it. If you would like to be able to find books and chapters select a different presentation on audible.

The Virginian (Dramatized) audiobook cover art

Disappointing

If you've read the book this audio presentation will be a tremendous let down.

The full book is excellent. I suggest dumping this audio and finding an unabridged audio. Unfortunately it is not available on audible at this time.

One Second After audiobook cover art

A novel for the ill-prepared

This is an interesting take on what an EMP attack on the US might look like. It is not a "how to survive" manual, rather it is a book about what will likely happen to ill prepared individuals.

This book will make you think about your own personal responsibility toward yourself and your family.

Great read. Straight forward. Should be mandatory for every person in the federal government.

If it was mandatory for high school students this country would be turned on its head.

This is a particularly good book for younger boys. Much is here to help build character while being most entertaining.

It's Superman! audiobook cover art

Probably not what you are expecting.

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-20-07

After about two hours into this book you will probably realize that this is not your traditional superman - man of virtue and steel, nor is Lois Lane the modern, charming yet moral person.

First, Clark Kent is a rather weak minded individual. His actual role in the book is very limited. One thing is certain Clark Kent is a self-proclaimed atheist - "I don't believe there is a God" - exactly what would expect from our superhero. But what else should we expect when early on we are told Clark's father is a pagan.

My dear Lois is a fairly loose woman, having sexual encounters with at least 3 different men, but not Clark. If fact Lois sleeps with a guy who is to be Clark's best friend. Sleeps with another guy who is to be the husband of one of Lois's best friend. And lets not forget the older professor. Of course as Lois says "A modern girl should have experiences with a variety of men, including older men"

The only thing that draws you into this story is the excellent narration and the hope that the story will actually take you somewhere.

The narration is awesome and really the only redeeming quality of this book.
