Completes the Movie

Movie is one of the greatest ever. Good that they had some of the original cast also on the production. You won't find any juicy or salacious gossip here, just a nice narrative of the making of the movie. Lots of nice stories about Andre, and well performed by Cary, who is good at impressions. Worth it if you like the movie.

Probably the best book I have read on here. If you grew up in the 1980's you will love this book. The story is amazing, and Wil Wheaton does a master class in performing it. I can't really speak highly enough of it, I loved every second of it and shed a tear at the end.

As far as I am concerned, this book is an excellent example of the very best an audio book can be. The narration is the best I have heard, the performance is amazing. At times I thought there must be more than one narrator the different voices were that good. And the story is up to Cornwell's high standard, it is excellent. This series gets better and better.

Should be required reading in every school on the planet. How to think critically, how to avoid faulty thinking and scams. Well written, quite thorough but starts at the basics. You need to read this, and get as many other people as you can to read it also.

Excellent performance, the narrator was able to change believably from a four year old girl to an old man! And a nice story for Christmas too. Also not too long, just the right length for a Christmas night. Thank you Audible.

Didn't know what to expect when I started listening but I was very pleasantly surprised. It is an excellent book that covers personal computers from the very beginning with lots of information I hadn't heard before. Covers the USA and Europe and goes right up to when the book was published. The narrator seems a bit... staid? when you start, but it's an apt performance for the subject matter. If you have any interest in computer history, you will love this book.

Loved his first book, original and funny, and Chris Matheson reads it well, as he does this book. However, if you have read the first book, then this book is basically more of the same, just not as good, and a bit repetitive. He very briefly takes shots at other religions, but very briefly, but mainly sticks to the same formula as book one.

There aren't many better than Robert Harris when it comes to historical novels. This is really good, and makes you feel like you are there, the performance is once again superb. My only quibble is with the 'B' plot, it seems to be there to make the story longer but in the end has no effect and there are no consequences. I think the 'A' plot would stand on it's own and could be fleshed out more. However it is still a cracking read and well worth a listen.

Making fun of religion is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel, but at least it is done well by Chris Matheson. It's satirical and comical and does a good job of pointing out the... flaws and illogic in the bible from gods point of view. Atheists of course will love it, some of the more open minded or liberal christians might enjoy it (maybe?). I imagine hard core christians will be praying for lightening to strike... It is narrated by. the author and he does a very good job, keeps it very interesting. Only negative point is that it is quite a short book.

I liked this final book in the series, it had twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. The performance was again top notch, Carolyn McCormick is one of the best narrators on Audible. If you have read the first two books then you have to read the third and finish it. You won't be disappointed.
