Like all of the author’s books he takes an incredible amount of time to research every connected part of a story. He puts them all together like a giant million piece puzzle and is able to tell you the story like most others cannot. Amazing story about CMH Roy Benavides, and many other amazing service members. This will make you proud of our country’s it’s armed forces and maybe give you new insights into what happened in Vietnam as it did for me. Highly recommend this, but be prepared for the reality of what happens in war and after.
Great way for moms to read! 5/5
By awakening mama
I loved audible when I was working and had a long commute for fantasy stories to give my brain a break. Now that I’m a mom of three I love it so that I can read nonfiction books. I actually had to sit down with the paper back and read it I never read anything. Thank you audible for keeping me informed and entertained.
Stats are broken 3/5
Stats are broken. It’s not capturing listening time correctly. It only has the most recent 15 days and today is captured 44 minutes from deleting app and reinstalling, not listening.
Great, chapter titles a hit and mit 4/5
Great app, but it’s hit or miss when the titles of chapters will appear or not appear. Today I only see Chapter 1, 2, 3, and so forth but yesterday Audible showed the chapter titles for the same audiobook.
Sleep timer fade out 3/5
I liked the previous timer, where it just stops without the long fade out. Please fix it.
By SG gravel rider
One of the most impactful books I’ve ever read or listened to. Going back for round two after I finish this review.
Stop nagging for a review. Here’s a 1 Star for your trouble
I started this audible on Thursday, it is now Sunday morning, I finished this a few moments ago.
I can relate to this story, my Mother was abused by my Father, there was infidelity and at a young age I protected my Mother from my Father. The strength Tina Turner has always portrayed has always been inspiring, she is articulate and kind... I am saddened by the loss of her Son, the terrible marriage to Ike... I’m glad she found true love and is living in a beautiful place. What a hard worker.
The part that was my ah-ha moment was when she said at the age of 38 she just wanted an American Express Gold card. I remember having an American Express Platinum at the age of 24 and not being really impressed. She worked all those years and was a celebrity and she didn’t have some of the things I did at a young age. Humbling.
Thank you Tina Turner for sharing your story. I will be gifting this book during the holidays to those who need it most.
Too simple 1/5
The audiobooks chapters aren’t labeled they go by chapter 1,2,3etc.
When I’m in locked screen mode it doesn’t show what point of chapter you’re on. Meaning how much of the chapter you’ve listened to and how much of it left.
I’m only allowed to speed up by margin of “.25” seconds.
For a company like Amazon this seems like the worst piece of crap I’ve ever used.
There are so many more problems with the app.
Use computer 5/5
So. The app itself works really well to play your books on the go but you can’t go into your wish list, make one on the app but you can on the computer. So I recommend look for book on the computer and making a wish list then change things from there because the app honestly is pretty bad for searching.
I didn’t realize the subscription didn’t give you free audio books; and that you still have to purchase your titles. I was thinking more along the lines of apple music or subscription streaming services in which you pay monthly and “have at it”. It’s fair when you consider the comparison to paper book pricing, and having to physically read (hurts my eyes after a while)
Will keep subscription although I think amazon is the devil and wish they hadn’t acquired audible
What a great book! Michelle Obama takes us along in her journey of life since she was a little girl. Very inspiring
I don’t want to pay money and I want events to earn credits!! 3/5
Thank you 🙏🏼
Trump and Russia mafia 5/5

FINALLY an adjustable sleep timer! 4/5
I’ve only wanted this feature for YEARS. It’s finally here. Thank goodness!
Next, can you please fix the bug where the app always resets itself to display books on “Cloud” instead of “Device”? It’s kind of annoying to have to click on “Device” every time I open the app. It should remember what I want!!
(I still use this app every day.)
Add support for Siri Shortcuts 4/5
I love listening to the audiobooks, and it’s a great app. I just want to be able to ask Siri to resume a book or play something based on a shortcut that I run.
expensive audio and confusing app 2/5
Audiobooks are very expensive and the purchasing is confusing. I find something in the app to listen to but you can’t buy in the app so instead it says “add to wish list” so I’m thinking the book is in my amazon app’s wish list ready for me to buy. But no. No idea what it means by add to wish list...
Very slow upload speed 2/5
Incredibly slow upload speed. Days not minutes.
Love it 5/5
Great but flawed 4/5
Audible has a great mix of literature, language courses, and Great Courses lectures. I probably use it daily, though I have two significant critiques:
1. The chapters are numbered, but never named. This means that if you lose your place (let’s say you hit the wrong button and the book jumps forward or back) you need to hunt and search to find it again. This can be a major pain.
2. It would be nice if very large books were broken up into parts so that we could clear up space on our devices. They download in parts, but you can’t select or delete parts you’ve read
Thank you for writing this book! 5/5

The Last Black Unicorn 5/5
By Merqueldra Daigre
I really enjoyed this book!! I really enjoyed Tiffany’s story. I can respect a person who can laugh at their trials and tribulations and learn from them. Very positive. A great read. YOU GO TIFFANY!!! We are rooting for your continued success!! I feel that I related to most of your stories. Oh and please surround yourself around intelligent, wise ladies like Jada. She’s very smart😉 SMOOCHES
Worst customer service 1/5
By chris the mick
I started their free trial and right away knew books on tape wasn’t for me. I canceled the subscription and thought I was done with em. Then they charge my account anyway. When I called to tell them they made a mistake they tried to tell me it was my fault. Which I can understand but still don’t say things like that to customers. Then they told me that they cannot process the refund at all and that they have to disconnect the call. I call back. They tell me I must have hung up that they don’t do that. So we get started again and after pulling up my account they tell me that they can process the the refund but that it’ll take 7 to 10 days. I process refunds for thousands of dollars at my work and it goes into the accounts that day so I know this is a lie. But they get rude and tell you to call your bank and then hang up on you. I still have not received any refund and my bank has no record of any transaction. These people are horrible. DO NOT USE THIS APP
Zia by Scott O’dell 3/5
Extremely boring to the INFINITY AND BEYOND. Worst book ever. The story is a PLATEAU. Very, very, very boring!! I wish I never wasted my money on the book. The audio version is more tolerable than physically reading the paper back. Each time I try to read it i fell asleep without even finishing A CHAPTER 😭😭😭 Boring, sad and very DEPRESSING . i WILL NEVER RECOMMEND this plotless book. Extreme Waste of my time. I should get a refund or they should pay me to read the book. NO THUMBS UP😱
By Dark and Gray
Awesome to hear the author read her biography.
Some much that was said has happened to me. I too am an overcomer by believing in myself. Being a dark skinned woman didn’t stop me. I stopped others from attempting to stereotype me.
They grew to understand my color will not be the factor that they could judge me by. It was the content of my character that drove them to look beyond the color of my skin.
Praise God for my mom. She is 100 and still dark and lovely. She taught me early on that people treat you by how you treat yourself.
A Great Ghost Story!!! 5/5
By Jeep girl 82
I wanted to get into audiobooks. But, the first story I didn’t like. The 2nd one I didn’t like the reader. I had read the first Max Porter books and loved it. So I saw this offer for 3 books and jumped in. What a gripping story and I loved the flawed in all the characters. Can wait for the next episodes. Do yourself a favor and listen to a great story.
Extraordinarily Insightful 5/5
I was at first happily surprised by Michelle Obama’s reading.
I was there in the story because I could feel it, hear it, see it, smell it. I recently visited Chicago for the first time and had the experience of driving down Lakeshore Dr., visiting Northwestern University, seeing Grant Park and man, many other things she mentioned, I could relate to.
The book totally captivated me and made me feel, not only that I finally had some questions answered that I was always curious about her and her family and their experiences and responses to things I was somewhat familiar with, but I also felt like I was a best friend she was talking to.
I loved the book! It was so amazing. And I just adore the Obama Family including Michelle’s super cool mom.
Since I received this audiobook,between my son and me, we have purchased at least five copies to send to family and friends.
This is, no doubt, a Best Seller!!!
One of the best books ever! 5/5
Michelle Obama is so eloquent & honest in her memoir. The undertone is positive throughout the book despite the fact that there some rough times that have been narrated. Every woman & girl should read this book before believing that they are not enough. Michelle’s story will prove you wrong.
Can’t hurt me 5/5
This is the best purchase I’ve made in a long time! This book along with an incredible life story gives you the tools for a better more fulfilling life. Now it’s just a matter of implementing them.
By Poop on a cup
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that Michelle writes more.
It was good but wish there was more of an ending 4/5
I wish the book told more about what happened after she brought magic back, I assume it came back and everyone has magic powers but I wish it went a little more into the future and showed Amari becoming queen and how everyone having magic affected Orisha.
I love y’all but I’m very frustrated right now! 1/5
I’ve been with audible since 2016 and I love audiobooks but this application has a long way to go. I can’t believe in the two years I’ve been a member they still have not addressed the issue with having their chapters numbered instead of named. It makes navigating certain titles so unnecessarily difficult, like when you’re trying to revisit specific chapters from a past read. I also wish the interface was more minimal. Sometimes there are titles I want gone from my library but even when I delete them they appear all greyed out. It’s just unattractive and takes away from what would otherwise be a delightful experience. Thanks for reading, have a good one.
The best audiobook I’ve ever read 5/5
The actor is amazing And the writing and storytelling topnotch. Get read. Set. Now go.
Amazing Journey! 5/5
By Llb 123
Listened to this audiobook from start to finish in one long car trip! We didn’t want it to end. It has everything; adventure, love of family, commitment to travel while giving back and learning, loving, living and as individuals, as a couple and as a family while traveling the world.
The book checks all the boxes; humorous, sweet, and may even make you shed a few tears. As a fellow Mainiac and traveler, i thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommended it to many friends and family. .
New car mode is almost perfect 5/5
I wish the time scrubber bar was easier to use. It’s hard to see where I tap and even harder to control sliding around in time. I love the new car mode feature but don’t like that when I create a clip, the app doesn’t give me the option to label the clip and most of the time when I’m driving and listening, I create clips all the time and use the native voice control to write a note. It would be nice to use voice as soon as I tap clips and and add note in car mode. Anyways, keep up the good work guys. Looking forward to your next release.

Good story 4/5
By Melora the dog lover
Interesting story and the story teller makes it pleasant to listen to.
Great app 3/5
The new updates are awesome. Long time fan of this app!!! I want to be able to purchase my books in the app.
The App is great but... 3/5
The App is great but the integration with the watch needs work. It says it syncs through wifi but I never finishes. Keeps telling me to put it on the charger: no one has time for all that. Many apps sync with no issue. This is unfortunate...
Terrible performance 2/5
Ever since the iOS 12 update.
The app keeps crashing 5/5
Crashes Everytime I change the chapter. Constantly skips through the chapters as if I'm fast forwarding it but I'm not touching the forward button at all. Have to try over and over again and sometimes it will finally play right. Then, for whatever reason every time this happens Siri pops up to interrupt the process even more. All this Only happens when I'm in this app.
I had to turn Siri off to use the audible app. I never use Siri anyway... But for those experiencing this problem that use Siri may not like to have to do this. In addition, Siri only acts up (even now sometimes when she's supposed to be shut off) when I use headphones that are plugged in...I restarted my phone a few times and that seemed to help. If I use my airpods I never have issues. Whether it's a glitch of audible or I glitch of apple, it was all really annoying.
This is a great short read! It’s filled with insight and tools for finding great treasures in life. I so loved it that it’s sure to bring me back to it over and over again.
I seldom write reviews, but this one deserves the effort. I hope it serves you well.
Mighty fine. 5/5
By southshore burke
Great dialogues, great soul-searching introspection. ...Wordy, but to me, that is truly great entertainment- Perfect storytelling, exerted from the deft tongue of a Dubliner....only verbose in the waning denouement.
Book position doesn’t get synced to Apple Watch 1/5

The missing piece! 5/5
By Snob New Heart
A plan and motivation are not enough. You have to get emotional leverage, link pleasure to the change, condition the new pattern and daily visualize already having it. My mind is blown. This book has changed the way I coach people now. That information is game changer!
