Where does The Power of One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Clearly # 1. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this is the best yet. It is hard to describe adequately how good this audiobook captures the heart. If you are only going to listen to one book in your life, this is the one

What other book might you compare The Power of One to and why?

None. This story is compelling and the narration superb.

Which character – as performed by Humphrey Bower – was your favorite?

Doc! Humphrey Bower captured the essence of the professor's character - or as Doc would say "11 out of 10" "Absolutile"

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

Yes but over 21 hours - not practical

Any additional comments?

The narrator was wonderful and brought the book alive. I compare him with Patrick Tull as my all time favorite.

Where does Buried Secrets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a classic "page turner" action book. Joseph Finder does an excellent job of the ebb and flow of the book with high points of tension and then relaxation. The plot is believable and the characters are spot on!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nick Heller - of course!!!

Which character – as performed by Holter Graham – was your favorite?

He does a great job with all characters except the nephew of Nick. His breaking of the voice is over done. I know why he does it but - still too much

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Final few chapters - I could not stop listening until finished

Any additional comments?

Nick Heller is the next Jack Reacher

This book has "unabridged" as its description and it is a dramatic rendition. While it is ok, it certainly does not qualify as unabridged in the classic sense.

Alexander Hamilton audiobook cover art

Nothing has changed

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-06-08

This is a great book about the political and social environment surrounding our early republic. If you changed the names and left out the duals, you could be talking about today's politics - intrigue, backstabbing, personal attacks. This book really fills in the gaps between the revolution and the War of 1812. The narration is supurb.

Our Mutual Friend audiobook cover art

Vintage Dickens

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-28-08

Our Mutual Friend is vintage Dickens with subplots, intense character development, and wordy. While the main plot lines converge at the end of the book, there are some plot lines that ramble on without a real tie in to the main lines. Having read or listened to all of the novels, I certainly was not surprised by the pace. I would strongly recommend this Audible version because the reader is supurb.

Fantastic series!! This book is the best of the three and wraps up all loose ends. I really enjoyed the reader. I strongly encourage people to listen to them in order or it will not make any sense at all.

Predictable but very funny book read by C. J. Critt. We found ourselves laughing out loud at the antics of the various characters. If you like the Stephanie Plum books you will certainly like this earlier book by Janet Evanovich.
