I wouldn't have selected this book if it weren't for the great reviews and boy, was I glad I decided to read this. I thought it would be a typical chick lit but I was pleasantly surprised. Cannot really describe it but it's a must read.

Couldn't stop listening to it

Quite an interesting story and the narration was flawless! Although a little predictable and obvious, the action packed exploits of James Reece to avenge his team and family are quite thrilling. The author's experience as a SEAL are clearly noticeable from the writing and description of tactics & equipment.

Not your usual Space Sci-fi book!

This book is full of humour right from the start and does not rush into the story. The battle sequences and training are especially fun & when the new recruits find out about all the new tech they've been given, it's is quite interesting. It makes for a good lighthearted read, don't expect too much in the lines of story or character development. The narrator, William Dufris, is excellent at changing tones and portraying different characters.

A grim story and very well written

Starts off a little slow but builds up till the very end and is quite engrossing. It emphasizes a range of themes like adultery, depression, isolation and alcoholism; and the dynamics of imperfect relationships. The ever looming suspense of the missing woman has a great payoff at the end, I would definitely recommend it if you like psychological thrillers..

Fantastic bedtime stories & here you'll find them!

I enjoyed these short stories. Especially the notes by Dumbledore at the end of each story. Really good narration by the cast of actors from the movies; makes it feel that much more connected to the Harry Potter universe. These tales act like the perfect bedtime stories for fans of the wizarding world. Just wish there were more.

Entertaining, funny and heartfelt.

Trevor takes you through his life as a naughty but smart kid in South Africa, born to a black woman and a white man in the time of Apartheid. There are moments where you just sit there smiling at his childhood stories. The significance of Church in his early life, the roles the women in his family played to make him who he is and his stories of teenage romance; this is a book that will take you through a roller coaster of emotions.

It's a masterpiece. Highly recommended!!

A very promising adaptation of Neil Gaiman's comics, I'd give this audiobook 5 stars just for the performance! A great cast of actors, brilliant sound effects and engaging storyline; an audiobook production doesn't get any better. Just put on a pair of headphones and immerse yourself into the Lord of Dreams' world. And if you are a DC fan, you'll enjoy it even more. Great stuff Audible!

Delia Owens paints a beautiful picture about the marshes of North Carolina and takes the reader on an incredible journey with the main character(Kya). I like how the two different narratives slowly intertwine and give a fitting end to the Marsh Girl's story. The narration by Cassandra Campbell is a cherry on top with her delightful voice and her range of accents.

Loved the story, the science behind every small detail, the uncertainty that followed every action of Mark Watney and the perfect narration by Will Wheaton. I remember someone described it as Robinson Crusoe in Space but its so much more!!
