A concise summary of all those observations that people of the Christian faith share in today's America.
if you want more tangible proof youre being targeted for your traditional values, then this book will certainly convince you of that.
Well written and filled with clear damning examples of the hatred for Christianity but unfortunately not a lot of what to do about it.

Rip Roarin 3rd installment in the Red Rising trilogy.
This is a very detailed and character laden saga that contains vivid images of war, love and loss.
An excellent and fun romp through the world of Colors.
Star Wars'esque coupled with The Song of Ice and Fire and maybe a bit of Joe Abercrombie.
An excellent audio experience with a phenomenal narration. Get it!

Such a good writer!
Arthur C. Clarke has a way of making you feel that youre inside the story.
What a fantastic sci fi author.

2001 is such an iconic story/movie, but reading/listening to it is only makes it better and understandable.
Definitely worth a few precious hours.

Written by Hoover Institute Fellow
Victor Davis Hanson
This is a very fair and well written summary of Trumps presidency through 2018.
Likening Trumps methodology to a kind of necessary 'toxic chemotherapy' for the country, only time will tell if the country may ultimately respond either in Trumps overall favor or not.
Like a hero of old, sauntering in at a particular time in history to possibly change the course of events and possibly the fate of a people.

A good story but not nearly the masterpiece I was expecting from so many gushing reviews.
Some good chapters for sure, but the sappy try at adolescent romance was eye rolling bad, and it took up too much of the latter part of the book.
3 stars, could have been 4,
I was quite surprised at the fairly basic and rambling prose and was really expecting more.
Worthwhile but hardly blown away by the Name of the Wind.

A pleasure

So very well written, this is an incredible recount of one brave womans grand portrayal of her time in 1930-40's British East Africa and the world as she saw it through her beautiful prose.

Long listen. Very informative, very anti religous.
Well written but, oh such a hard narrator to listen to.
The history of the Jews and the land around modern day Israel brilliantly told in multiple storylines dating back thousands of years.
if you want a better understanding of the Jews and their play in our modern world then look no further than this mammoth work.
Michener was not religous and his dislike of religion shows glaringly as he flushes out many of the difficulties surrounding Judaism, Christianity, Islam and how they all relate to one another, yet are so very different in practice.
Id recommend this door stop, mammoth, 54 hour listen to anyone who seeks wisdom in this difficult Judeo Christian, Islamic, convergence zone, ie. the land of Palestine/Israel, and how it all fits together. On another note, I would also recommend you speed up the play to at least 1.5, or higher like I did, 1.8 if you can handle it.
Yes, the narration is that bad!

This performance by Michael Page may be the finest of any performance Ive heard to date, and Ive listened to many of the greats.

The writing is excellent with some of the finest, sometimes crude yet elegantly wrought raw dialogue youll find.
Believable and likable characters (multiple) and believable unlikable villains (multiple)

An almost Victorian dialogue with a raw edgy flair that really works.
Fantasy, yes, but written with rare exceptional literary characterization. I did much enjoy this story.
It will draw you in, stay with it till youre hooked.

Fun, witty space romp
