Prepare yourself for the ultimate multicast performance. We've gathered many of Audible's most popular narrators to bring to life some of the most extraordinary words ever written. 19 words, in fact, carefully selected and arranged alphabetically as in their original source: the 11th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica. We created this enlightening journey from AUDIENCE to LITERATURE because you asked for it.

When I was a kid, I would pull a random encyclopaedia off the shelf and and read a random section. If this is a test to see if people will listen to someone read an encyclopaedia to us, you have one fan right here.

As a goodreads friend recently told me, "books like these are junk food for the mind". I couldn't agree more or make a better statement. I gobbled this one up and then licked my fingers. If you love survival horror, I think you may love this novel.

A blueprint. A bible. What Sun Tzu’s Art of War was to ancient China, Pimp is to the streets. As real as you can get without jumping in, this is the story of Iceberg Slim’s life as he saw, felt, tasted, and smelled it. It is a trip through hell by the one man who lived to tell the tale—the dangers of jail, addiction, and death that are still all too familiar for today’s black community. By telling the story of one man’s struggles and triumphs in an underground world, Pimp shows us the game doesn’t change; it just has a different swagger.

A little piece of alternative history. Title of the book pretty much says it all. This is an autobiography of.........a pimp. Enjoy! Narrator does a great job and the life of Iceberg slim is anything but uneventful.

On a frigid New Year’s Eve in Minneapolis, a young woman’s brutalized body falls from the trunk of a car into the path of oncoming traffic. Questions as to whether she was alive or dead when she hit the icy pavement result in her macabre nickname, Zombie Doe. Unidentified and unidentifiable, she is the ninth nameless female victim of the year, and homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska are charged with the task of not only finding out who Zombie Doe is but who in her life hated her enough to destroy her. Was it personal? Or could it just have been a crime of opportunity?

I bought this book off the daily deal not expecting much. Wasn't I surprised! This book was awesome! The narration was easy to listen to. The story is very well written and leaves you very satisfied. It was hard for me to stop listening. I completed this book in two days at 1.5 listening speed. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did and I would definitely recommend and buy more books from the author Tami Hoag.
