Five-Star Faves

So very satisfying.

Once We Were Brothers

"The narrator was excellent and powerful. I finished the book in just a few days, while gardening, ironing, cooking. I just didn't want to stop listening. This was instructive, moving, important, and thought-provoking." -- Cork

Poetry for the heart and mind!

Orlando

"New author for me. First time reading/listening to this book, although I saw the movie first. I should have read the book first, and I would have better understood the movie. I must say, I had to wrestle with some of my shocked emotions when I came across some passages. She described emotions so beautifully and with such simplicity I was speechless for several moments . I had to stop the book and roll the words in my mind for several minutes. A masterpiece that requires your full attention with a marvelous sense of humor!" -- Lenox

Touching

Fly Away

"As I listened to this book, so many things were explained in a way that helped me understand how others deal with their pain, and why they may cause themselves additional pain. Well written and touching are the two words that come to mind for this beautiful story of friendship and healing." -- MichL

Loved it!

Lake in the Clouds

"I read this series years ago and am now listening to the audio version to refresh my memory before I read the latest book. They are just as good the second time around and possibly even better on audio. I think this is my favorite in the series. It's a fabulous story!" -- Susan

Powerful!

The Elephant Whisperer: My Life with the Herd in the African Wild

"I've always believed there is much more to communicating with animals than we realize and The Elephant Whisperer captures these incredible moments with exhilarating beauty, intense drama, and powerful emotion. Congratulations on exceeding my expectation!" -- Lisa

Hard truths no fluff, a gut check for founding CEO

The Hard Thing About Hard Things

"If you need to know how paranoid you needed to be before considering being the CEO of a startup, then this is a must read. Not too long, great insight into the dread, critical, life altering decisions that you must make as a forms prime leader." -- Hal

A Wonderful Read of a Great Book!

Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West

"I was able to visit many of the places talked about in the book and the descriptions of the characters and the locations is extremely well crafted. I enjoyed the book as well as the audio presentation." -- Daniel Moore

Important book about the American we don't hear about often

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis

"Vance's life story is critical for anyone interested in the complexity of poverty, class, education, and childhood in America. It's a story rarely told and a community rarely discussed when we talk about the challenges Americans face." -- Jonathan

Well read and so important

Americanah

"Important story in today's America. With global outlook, questions of identity, race and cross-cultural encounters. And very well read: the different accents make this an engaging listening experience." -- Nicole Coleman

Superb!

Anne of Green Gables

"I have, for as long as I can remeber, been in love with the Anne of Green Gables movies. For the first time I decided to read the books and am pleased that I am just as much in love with them than I am the movies. I am probably more in love with the books than I am with the movies. There is so much more detail and description that only adds to my love of this series. Highly recommended!" -- Olivia G.
