  • The Nuremberg Trial

  • By: John Tusa, Ann Tusa
  • Narrated by: Ralph Cosham

Here is a gripping account of the major postwar trial of the Nazi hierarchy in World War II. The Nuremberg Trial brilliantly recreates the trial proceedings and offers a reasoned, often profound examination of the processes that created international law. From the whimpering of Kaltenbrunner and Ribbentrop on the stand to the icy coolness of Goering, each participant is vividly drawn.

The narrator reads well but has an exhausting lisp and an annoyinh tendency to add "ah" at the beginning of most of the sentences. "ah-subject", "ah-trial", "ah-goering". At some stage I even had to check if it was Jackson or "ah-Jackson"... The book iyself is brilliantly written, never boring, to the point that I persisted with it and tried to filter out narrator's flaws.
Overall, great book and if you have a chance and are interested in the subject, get it in paper.

What an awesome book! If you missed the old Stephen King, this is the right thing for you. A combination of mystery and friendship right from "It" combined with brilliant detective plot from "Mr Mercedes". And Will Patton should read all King's books, pure awesome he is! You have to listen to this.

The most advanced scientific enterprise ever mounted, Sir John Franklin’s 1845 expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage had every expectation of triumph. But for almost two years his ships, HMS Terror and Erebus, have been trapped in the Arctic ice. Supplies of fuel and food are running low. Scurvy, starvation and even madness are beginning to take their toll. And yet the real threat isn’t from the constantly shifting, alien landscape, the flesh-numbing temperatures or being crushed by the unyielding, frozen ocean. No, the real threat is far more terrifying.

The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas.

Published in 1844, it is often considered one of the great thrillers of all time and, along with The Three Musketeers, Dumas' most popular work.

Falsely accused of treason, the young sailor Edmund Dantes is arrested on his wedding day and imprisoned in the island fortress of the Chateau d'If. After staging a dramatic escape, he sets out to discover the treasure of Monte Cristo and catch up with his enemies.

A beautiful story about revenge tasting best when it's served cold.
The audiobook itself would do with a bit of editing. It must be the first audiobook in the world, at least this is how it sounds like. You can hear the guy turning pages, drinking, stammering and at two points there's even a burp! :) he is doing a great job though, his voice is perfect for the story, so you can forgive him that.
Highly recommended!

Most people ignored the outrageous reports on the news. But they became too frequent, they became too real. And soon, they began happening down the street. Then the Internet died. The television and radio went silent. The phones stopped ringing. And we couldn't look outside anymore. Malorie raises the children the only way she can; indoors. The house is quiet. The doors are locked, the curtains are closed, mattresses are nailed over the windows. They are out there. She might let them in.

At first I didn't know what was wrong with this book but I persevered because I had nothing else to listen to. And then it dawned me: the idea and the story is actually quite interesting but it's horribly written! Top it off with a terrible narration and you have a recipe for postapocalyptic disaster! So disappointing!

From New York Times best-selling author Nick Bilton comes a true-life thriller about the rise and fall of Ross Ulbricht, aka the Dread Pirate Roberts, the founder of the online black market Silk Road. In 2011, Ulbricht, a 26-year-old libertarian idealist and former Boy Scout, launched 'a website where people could buy anything anonymously, with no trail whatsoever that could lead back to them'. He called it Silk Road, opened for business on the Dark Web, and christened himself the Dread Pirate Roberts.

Breakfast of Champions (1973) provides frantic, scattershot satire and a collage of Vonnegut's obsessions. His recurring cast of characters and American landscape was perhaps the most controversial of his canon; it was felt by many at the time to be a disappointing successor to Slaughterhouse-Five, which had made Vonnegut's literary reputation.

I love the book. I read it multiple times in different languages, watched the movie so I was really curious how this will be. Especially having JM reading it. And his performance is awesome. I was wondering how it'll be done with the lack of drawings but the way JM explains them is probably the best part of the audiobook. Because, to be honest, this brilliant piece of literature simply is not an audiobook material, even if you have the perfect performer... And I don't think there would be anybody better than JM. I never thought that I would submit a review like that, the highest scores in story and performance but only one star for overall. And yet there I have it and it actually makes perfect sense.
