This is a fast moving, fun story of a crazy, mad space adventure. The book could be a 5, but author needs to tone down the sarcasm! Honestly, it seems there is a snarky comment every three minutes for 10+ hours. The narrator never seems serious, even in serious situations. I don't think he was a good choice. Lastly, this book ends in the middle of an important "event" in the story, leaving readers without an ending. I may read the second one, but would appreciate a stand alone book with some kind of an end after listening for over ten hours! I felt a little cheated.

Since the day Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign, the left has waged an unhinged, hysterical war against him. Now, with her trademark candor and wit, Ann Coulter defends Trump's policies in the face of liberal hypocrisy and exaggeration. Liberals used to pride themselves on their ultra-hipness; they mocked right-wingers for supposedly overreacting to headlines and believing in conspiracies. But as soon as candidate Trump emerged, 100 percent of the moral panic has come from the left. They think everything Trump does isn't merely wrong - it's a national crisis.

Ann Coulter can make me laugh while explaining so many things. Her book is a look at the media's "version" of the facts on many of the Trump issues (stories). She quotes (and names) media folks and then tells the real outcome of the situation. If you want to laugh some and learn some, listen to her book. I like the fact that she "reads" her own books! Thanks again, Ann.

After the death of her adoptive mother, Ava Saunders comes upon a peculiar photograph, sealed and hidden away in a crawl space. The photo shows a shuttered, ramshackle house on top of a steep hill. On the back, a puzzling inscription: Destiny calls us. Ava is certain that it's a clue to her elusive past. Twenty-three years ago, she'd been found wrapped in a yellow blanket in the narthex of the Holy Saviour Catholic Church - and rescued - or so she'd been told. Her mother claimed there was no more to the story.

This mystery has a very complicated and difficult story line. Sometimes it is difficult to know who is speaking, but the narrator did a good job with this book. I personally found the characters impossible to care about. The ending is not what I wanted or expected. I got this as an audible daily deal, glad I did not spend a credit for it.

I loved Daniel Suarez's Daemon, so gave this one a try. It was so intense, I just could not stop listening. The subject is quite timely as we know drones are here to stay and even now may be doing things we don't know about. I recommend this book, great narrator and story, thirteen hours well spent! Enjoy!!

James Rollins is a great storyteller and knows how to write an exciting, action story with wonderful characters. I have enjoyed all of his books, including this one. John Meagher, the narrator, did a great job, very easy to understand and pleasant to listen to. The Amazon is such an amazing (and scary) setting for an intense story. If you can suspend belief (some things are not realistic) as I did, this is an amazing story that will keep you reading/listening past your bedtime! I recommend this book if you like exciting action stories with some mystery thrown in!

Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty and extra efficient. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes - meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven. But plain Jane is hiding something. Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. So she can take it all away. Just as he did to her.

Be prepared for a very dark story and a main character who is difficult to like, much less understand. Both the author and narrator were new to me and I was hesitant to purchase this one, but wanted a "page turner" to really get into and this met my expectations. I recommend it, with warnings that this is a dark story about a person with mental illness, no happy ending, really! I would read more about Jane Doe and enjoyed the narrator, too.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett reveals the real story behind Hillary Clinton’s deep state collaborators in government and exposes their nefarious actions during and after the 2016 election. This audiobook reveals how persons within the FBI and Barack Obama’s Justice Department worked improperly to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. When this suspected effort failed, those same people appear to have pursued a contrived investigation of President Trump in an attempt to undo the election results and remove him as president.

This is such an interesting look at the situation we find ourselves in concerning the Russia Hoax. Gregg Jarrett gives an explanation of the laws involved, and this allows for a clearer view of what has happened. I think that this book can appeal to both readers/listeners who support President Trump and those who don't! When you can look at this situation from a legal perspective, some questions are answered. Thanks, Gregg Jarrett, for your excellent book.

Now, in his grandest, most intensely thrilling adventure yet, Bob the Nailer must face his deadliest foe from Vietnam - and his own demons - to save his wife and daughter.

Great story, lots of background.....this is my favorite Bob Lee Swagger book, full of action, too. If you are watching the TV series "Shooter" you will see many differences in the story. The TV series is also good, but the books are even better!
I recommend all of the Bob Lee books. Thank Stephen Hunter for your great characters and thanks Jon Lindstrom for wonderful narration.

Narrator Dan Stevens ( Downton Abbey) presents an uncanny performance of Mary Shelley's timeless gothic novel, an epic battle between man and monster at its greatest literary pitch. In trying to create life, the young student Victor Frankenstein unleashes forces beyond his control, setting into motion a long and tragic chain of events that brings Victor to the very brink of madness. How he tries to destroy his creation, as it destroys everything Victor loves, is a powerful story of love, friendship, scientific hubris, and horror.

Everyone knows the story, but I recommend listening to Dan Stevens reading of Frankenstein. The story is entertaining and I always hear something I missed before. Dan Stevens is a new narrator for me and I liked his voice and reading style very much. The story, although thought of as a "monster" tale is really about so much more!

I love it when an author narrates his/her own book, but ONLY if the narration is great. Jeanine Pirro is wonderful reading her book. I think she has enough inside information as well as great insights to make anyone enjoy this book. She is a supporter of the President, and a long time friend, and this gives her the ability to compare the before and after (the election) Trump. Read/listen to this book. It is certainly worthwhile and seemed to go by so quickly I found myself wishing it had been longer! Thank you, Judge Jeanine!
