Just a delightful reading of the classics we all know and love. Stephen Fry' narration is a treat!

Exactly what you'd expect - in the best way!

So glad I pre-ordered this gem! If you are unfamiliar with these internet darlings prior to reading you may be in for a surprise or two but if you're a fan you know largely what to expect. At times a sincere and heartfelt glimpse into their private lives, and at other times a goofy and ridiculous extension of their videos and podcast. I love that they included individual Try's for each of the boys that were truly comfort-zone-stretching. Definitely cheesy, definitely entertaining, and definitely worth your time and credit.

Fast-paced!!

Holy smokes, what a story! An interesting concept and a novel take on the much-patroned spy-games story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the narration, though at times I wish it had been expanded out into a longer tale. I wanted more background, more steps toward plot, and more explanation at times. I wish this was a series because then we could have gotten so much more of everything. That being said however, this story kept me entertained and guessing (for the most part) throughout. Can't wait to read more from David Morrell!

holy smokes!

Oh the twists! This is an incredibly well written story which expands wonderfully on the universe created in the last book. Not a direct sequel per say but the tie-ins, both overt and subtle, are so so SO rewarding. Alastair Reynolds will be getting all of my audible credits for the next few months, assuming I don't burn through them so quickly as to require their outright purchase. Well done, sir! Also John Lee is stellar as usual, one of my favorite narrators ever.

A new classic

Roy Dotrice brings the many many characters to like in a way that doesn't feel cheap or cheesy. this sorry is sure to be a classic! though admittedly biased as a fan of the show, the books are on another level entirely. Superb

Such an ambitious story. The universe Scalzi has created here is wondrous! Will Wheaton brings an entreating performance that captivates quickly and assuredly

Great, but not King's scariest work

While this was an enjoyable read I would say that it's on the weaker end in terms of King-scariness. Well written and definitely still spooky but at no point was there any legitimate terror. I was looking for terrifying so that's the only downside.

True to her form, Mary Roach delivers an enjoyable listen that is witty, insightful, and and initiative. Up there with Stiff and Gulp, Grunt is fantastic.

Powerful and thorough

Insightful and informative, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is a powerful and thorough account of Hitler's rise, his rule, and his ultimate downfall. The author's first hand accounts give texture to a subject which is well known to many.
A job well done by William L. Shirer

What a story!

A wonderful piece of speculative fiction by Omar El Akkad. I may have hummed and hawed at some parts but in the end I was left dumbstruck. Not by a crazy twist or an unforseen conclusion but by the way this journey was able to, at least partly, humanize an indefensible act. I don't want to go any further and spoil anything for future readers so I'll leave it at that. I just wish we had gotten some more background in a few areas. Damn fine nonetheless!
