Continuing the story begun in The Hobbit, this is the first part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, available as a complete and unabridged audiobook. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power - the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring - the ring that rules them all - which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

For the love of god will the tech people at audible please step up and earn their paycheck. This has to be one the most famous and iconic books ever written, and they can't put chapter titles on it. I'd say something if they even got the chapter numbers right but no. I'm getting sick and tired of this.

What can I say other than this is brilliant story. I know there is a book 2 out there on audible but the reviews are not favourable due to its ending so I'll probably leave it here. I feel this story is over and I loved every hour of it. So I don't want to ruin it with a poor sequel. I had not listened to Michael Page since Scott Lynchs book and I had forgotten how damn good he is.
I would highly recommend this. Great value for money.

The hunt is on for Jaeger. Ruth - his wife - has been kidnapped, and after a secret Nazi cache of uranium goes missing, it seems the enemy is on the move once more. That much uranium in enemy hands could devastate the world. It's up to Jaeger and his team to stop them before their worst fears are realised. But they are always one step ahead, pushing Jaeger to the limit of his endurance. The danger is real, and the people who hold Ruth have a score to settle. It's a race against time. And the clock is ticking....

Bravery. Honor. Sacrifice. These are more than mere words to trained Marine sniper Nathan McBride. He’s never backed away from danger and he’s not about to start now, even if it means confronting the cold-blooded interrogator who tortured him to the brink of death more than a decade ago.

More than two centuries after World War III poisoned the planet, the final bastion of humanity lives on massive airships circling the globe in search of a habitable area to call home. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago. The only thing keeping the two surviving lifeboats in the sky are Hell Divers - men and women who risk their lives by diving to the surface to scavenge for parts the ships desperately need.

Seriously, I have returned a lot of audiobooks mainly due to poor narration. I can safely say if RC Bray had narrated those I would have stuck with them. He brings stories to life and authors should thank their lucky stars to get him. This is a great book and you will find yourself totally immersed almost immediately. 👍

When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

I like this type of story. It's short and to the point with not a lot of padding. I was going to give up early on due to the narrators narrow range but the good story kept me wanting to find out what happened next.
