When time is moneyI really am enjoying audible as I drive to and from work. It has changed my life and I feel I can benefit so much despite being short on time to sit and read. Now I love getting into my car to drive to work as I look forward to what I will hear. Extremely well read, engaging are two words that come to mind. Professional and on topic with good quality sound makes this an amazing platform. Thank you! Daisy.Version: 3.11.2

Listen carefully to all samples.I love audio books. I listen to them when my work requires concentrated hand eye coordination but my mind needs stimulation and also on longer journeys. In the majority of titles the narration is superb but just occasionally you find a duff, mind numbing, monosyllabic or stilling narration which is akin to drawing a rusty saw over 200 year old hand carved mahogany. Just weep worthy! Along with this there can sometimes be other problems present, born of the editing suite but you rarely get to experience these until you have purchased and downloaded the entire title. This is where the returns policy is at its best as the refund is immediate in the case of members credits. Beware however, as there is a limit to how many titles they will refund, hence the title of my review. The classics for example have many many different versions, ensure you have tried all the narrators to get a feel for the one which appeals to you the most. I have been an audible member since 2010 and have not had to contact customer relations once! I am very happy using audible. I can use my purchases over several devices and they are quick to download. I can go off into the wilds prepared with enough titles to see me through many weeks before I return to WiFi world to collect some more. Highly recommend to those who love stories and expanding their experience of narrative story telling, biography, history, travel logs and the list goes on!.Version: 2.28

ScepticalWhen my daughter said audible was my Christmas present,I wasn’t jumping for joy, grateful but not excited. I started the Harry Potter series,bought the first two but didn’t read them, then Covid struck, fed up watching day time telly, I started to listen instead, and what a revelation, I had read the books as they came out ,only because my daughters bought them and wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and enjoyed them, so having them read to me, let’s say, a ? was at the back of my mind. How wrong I was, the stories are still very imaginative, but Stephen Fry, brings each and every character to life, his verbalisation of everything within each book, lets you use your imagination to its fullest, I became so enthralled with how he changed each voice, and the twists and turns in the stories, which the movies missed had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I patiently await book 7, and I am suffering withdrawal symptoms till it’s available. Never again will I say,” I’d rather have the book in my hands.” Audible you have a convert..Version: 3.29.1

The Drop OffI had the absolutely pleasure of listening to the “Drop off” by Fiona Harris and Mike McLeish. It blasts us into our diverse Melbourne and to the life’s of three wonderful characters, Lizzie, Megan and Sam who all have to deal with the monotony of the ‘drop off/school life’ but in the process, discover the absolute joy that these precious moments create. This Hilarious book so cleverly written by Fiona Harris and Mike McLeish highlights how we strive to be successful parents and try to act like mature adults but can so easily slip back into the child within, aching to be accepted, respected and loved and back into the politics of the playground! The superb delivery of the text, with its many characters (and accents ) and the connection to the emotion of each character is so beautifully handled. There are some very emotional, gut wrenching moments from Sam( Mike Mc Leish) amidst the hilariously portrayal of Lizzie’s family (Fiona Harris) and Gyton Grantley’s Rick. As a past ‘drop off’ school mum, it reminded me of the friendships that crept into my life on the morning drop off, and that developed into some of my most precious friends..Version: 3.32

Would have scored 5 stars, except it’s expensiveI love this app, but hate the price being so high for the monthly subscription. The one credit a month is extremely nice to have included, but not worth the price because most of the audible books, minus the newer and popular titles, are cheaper or free in the kindle Unlimited monthly subscription. I have to give a score of 10 for the people that read the books. Even my son loves how the readers use different voices for each different character. The readers also do an excellent job setting the tone and mood of the books. I also love how I can do almost anything, working, driving, cleaning, working on puzzles, supervising the kids doing their schoolwork, falling asleep, or drawing while I am listening to books with my wireless earbuds in or connecting my phone to my car stereo or any Bluetooth device with a speaker. Maybe include the audible subscription in the monthly Kindle Unlimited subscription, the one credit for an audible book a month, and more free classics for $15. Just a thought to get more subscribers..Version: 3.45.1

Peace of heart, clarity of mindThis is my first audio book and a beautiful place to begin. I’m struggling to find words to explain my view of this book because what’s its left me with is a sense which transcends words. Listening to the introduction I was surprised to learn how many different translations there have been and impressed by Jacks dedication to reaching an understanding that speaks to western minds in today’s world. Because of his quest I was able to hear it’s meaning. There’s nothing “new” here because it’s where other thinking has been born from. For me it’s stripped back some of the other spiritual/new age/inside out/non duality and religious texts in a way which brings them all together through their roots. Because this has been a work of love from and for him, Jacks voice conveys the message in an engaging way which adds to the message. I’m so glad time opened so I could sit and listen..Version: 3.3.1

Audible has many positives and much to strive for.Audible has a great selection but MUST ensure that it does not cut readers off in the middle of a series with a lame excuse about not having the rights to an audio book. Audible is responsive to questions and criticisms but must act more quickly on addressing problems. I’ve been a member for about eight years and will remain a member for as long as I can afford it..Version: 3.9.1

Beware citizens of the worldHistory repeats and I feel the world is yet again facing a perilous onslaught of dangerous far left agendas all converging at once. Cancel culture and woke culture are amongst a variety of groups that have sinister groups backing them. How spoiled are the youth of today, a generation who have never had it so good, yet complain about how unfair life is and how unjust things can be. I say grow up and give thanks to those who walked before you that had something to actually complain about, where injustice was real. This book lays out in broad daylight how tyrannical govt can be and how easy it is to wake up and it’s... too late. Smarten up as this book should be a reminder to never get complacent. I appreciate you making this available and hope all of humanity get the opportunity to read it. With thanks and appreciation..Version: 3.47

Relatively terrific appMake sure you own a desktop computer, you may be able to subscribe from your phone through their mobile site or through their app but when you need to cancel your subscription they will only allow you to do so through a desktop computer. Also make sure you redeem all of your credits before you cancel your subscription because they won't honour the credits that you already purchased if you haven't found a book that you like. Unredeemed outstanding credit gets taken away with your subscription. They don't sell books. To buy books, you need to use your browser, not the app. It is very weird. Other than that the app is okay.Version: 3.24.1

How Many Years Has It Been?I can’t remember how many years it’s been that I’ve been listening to books through this App. I was there at the beginning. Audible puts me to sleep at night and Audible has accompanied me on thousands upon thousands of road miles. This app is still doing the job - nothing fancy, it's a vehicle for enjoying the varying content in the audiobooks..Version: 3.37

One minute out?Ok I may have missed it but I didn’t get the title. Normally it’s it’s pretty strait forward in Mark Greaney novels. If your a fan of the series you’ll likely be irritated by the first person dialogue for at least the first few chapters. Eventually, if you’re anything like me you will slowly grow to appreciate the first person style. Not the best and not the worst of the series by any stretch. What I like liked about this one is that Gentry was flying solo throughout most of the mission, much like the first few in the series. This seems to allow for more daring and/ or desperate missions like the one that originally drew us in to the series. A good read for sure, just have some patience with the change in writing style in the beginning or you’ll miss out on something very good..Version: 3.19.1

This book was reviewed by the New YorkerThe book is well written and drifts to a conclusion that is unbelievable. I think Riley ran out of ideas to finish it about 50 pages from the end. I would not say I enjoyed the book at all. However I will read another of his books to see if this is a pattern..Version: 2.27

OutstandingAudible is the best subscription service I’ve ever known. I’m so happy with it. I’ve subscribed for 3 years now and I find it great value with the monthly credits and excellent choice of books. Ideal for me as I’m always on the move, whether driving or walking or some other activity or chore, I rarely have five minutes to sit down with a good book. With audible I can keep my brain ticking and keep everything going at the same time. I often struggle to complete lengthy academic books ( my attention span can be limited) but with audible I’ve devoured and absorbed so many books. I’ve listened to more books in three years than I’ve read in a lifetime. I have a huge thirst for knowledge just haven’t got the time or the patience to sit down long enough. So win win for me with the ingenious idea of an audio book. If you haven’t guessed already I love love love audible :-) Outstanding service *****.Version: 3.30

Difficult to rateReally torn on this one. Loved the first section about the young Holly with all the 80s references. Enjoyed some of the Crispin story and Ed but caught myself glossing over sections and almost giving up before being sucked back in again. I think the sci fi weirdness just wasn’t for me but I couldn’t help admiring the quality of the writing. Although there are multiple stories they all tie together and I also liked the references from Black Swan Green and Thousand Autumns both of which I loved. Some of the weirder sections made more sense as they were explained later on in the book and what started off sounding like six separate stories did make one cohesive whole. Cleverly done but a bit too much of the sci fi for me to rate as a 5 especially as half way through I couldn’t see past a 3. Some reviewers have criticised the differing voices and accents for Holly but I thought this worked well to distinguish age, time and place..Version: 3.5

Everyone should love booksI love the Audible app because it allows me to enjoy a good book even while driving or other activities that prevent reading a book while doing them. RIF was a program I loved in school, many of my classmates would have me pick out books and they would get them and give them to me because they didn't like reading and knew I loved to do so. At the time I was happy to get more books to enjoy though looking back I wish I had tried harder to share my love of reading with my classmates. My one real gripe is regarding two issues related to playback, the volume max can vary quite a bit from one narrator to another I presume due to production methods or settings so I would appreciate an ability to make the volume louder than currently possible especially when using the built in speaker on a mobile device. The second issue is that when listening to a book in the background and playing any of a number of games that sadly force you to watch ads occasionally to play for free it can sometimes fail to allow restarting the narration after the ads and rather default to any random music file you have on the device..Version: 3.38

Terrible UXIt should not be this difficult to BUY something from a company. I should be able to make purchases inside the app or at least click a button that would take me directly to an outside URL where I can pay for the item I want. Will delete app after listening to a podcast series only on Audible..Version: 2.27

I’m here at last!Many friends told me that they listened to Audible in their cars, during the day at night etc but at the time, I really didn’t think I had the ability to listen & hear whatever was playing, so it’s taking me a while to get here and a few quite major changes to my daily routine. Now I have time and space to play Audible and I am grateful to be able to listen. So far, I’m listening to non-fiction which has been very positive. I enjoy the ability to save clips to come back to later. I listen on a number of different devices iPhone, iPad and Alexa mainly and it’s here that I have found my only negative issue; the app does not sync across the devices which has caused some minor frustration. I don’t know why it’s not happening but I would like to know how to rectify the problem..Version: 3.31.1

Enroll In Drive-time UI absolutely love audible! Rarely do I listen to music any longer because I always have an audiobook on the go. In my case, almost everything I listen to is related to business or personal development and it is such a good way to stay engaged in my continual growth and education. Having said that, the vast majority of my listening time comes solely while I’m driving, time that I would have otherwise wasted. What an incredible way to work on yourself, your goals, and your aspirations without having to take additional time out of your busy day to sit down and read. I have also started using audible as a means of filtering the books I am willing to read as I tend to be the write in the margins, take notes, and underline kind of guy while reading, and that’s just a time consuming effort. Now rather than going through that process with a book that I don’t find to be quite as beneficial, I am able to listen to more and filter out only those which are going to be the best so I can focus my reading/study material on only that which will be the most beneficial and applicable to me at the time..Version: 3.36

Full of all the ingredients of a top notch adventure a highly recommended readThoroughly enjoyed this intriguing exciting book. It has everything a good sci fi tale needs-mysterious deaths, abandoned spaceship, cryogenic sleep disasters, the heartbreaking loss of loved ones, weird seemingly magical happenings and fantastically scary monsters all brought brilliantly to life by Jonathan’s narration You are captured and swept along with Darius and his daughter who after waking from cryosleep find they have been asleep for 1000 years and are now in unknown space on a seemingly dead spaceship whose occupants have been mysteriously slaughtered and with no idea how they got there. With lots of twists and turns and a plot line that grows ever more strange as the tale continues you are kept on the edge of your seat throughout, ending on such a brilliant cliffhanger that you must find out what happens in the next book which I have already downloaded. A highly recommended read(listen).Version: 2.37

One of my Top 3 Apps- BUT...I love my Audible App & use it daily. There really is something incredibly special & satisfying about hearing your favourite stories brought to vivid life by a talented narrator. My job involves spending all day looking at a computer screen so my eyes struggle to cope with the added strain of reading on top of work- my audible app means I can still emerge myself in so many of the literary worlds I love. My ONE complaint? Since the last 2-3 versions have been released, sometimes I can’t get newly purchased books to download. REALLY annoying. Most of the time (90-95%) I just wait a day or so & the problem fixes itself. Once or twice now I’ve had to delete the App, shut down my phone & then RE-install the App again once I’ve turned my iPhone back on. This seems to be a recurring theme in a lot of the most recent reviews- wish they would fix whatever bug it is, because otherwise this App is the best thing to happen to my ability to keep reading for enjoyment in a long, long time!.Version: 3.42

Disappointed with App ChangeI’ve been an avid member for I’m thinking at least a decade and I just discovered that you have removed all my reading statistics and levels of accomplishment in the app. Naturally I won’t quit but I loved that aspect of the app and it gave me a continued sense of achievement and accomplishment. Please return this feature it means so much to me or show or tell me where you moved it to. Thanks for listening. I have now discovered that my review above is not exactly correct the statistics are still there. However, because I had two accounts, recently consolidated into one the one I have remaining shows me as having achieved scholar while in fact I have long since passed Master level. That bothers me greatly. May seem a small issue to but not I. Also, what’s the level above Master as when your records are updated I will surpass that easily. Even if you don’t make the update I will still obliterate Master level and there must be others. Anyway once I hear from you I will update to 5 stars. Finally, I wish you would find a way where I can find and purchase books inside the App if apple don’t like it so what, just buy them out and make a better policy..Version: 2.34

Couldn’t stop listening!!!I have only read a couple of Nora Roberts novels before but have read ALL 48 novels she has written under the name of JD Robb following Eve Dallas and Roarke ( stunning series can’t recommend enough!!!) I only chose to listen to this because I’m up to date with this favourite series and waiting for her to write the next one !!! However, I am blown away with this book.... I didn’t want it to finish in fact I wish there had been another chapter detailing and continuing the story further so that we had satisfaction with all the loose ends tied up!!!! Actually hearing how every character ended up after the big event near the end would have made it perfect!!!!! I would love another book with Elizabeth/Abigail and Brooks story evolving . I loved her character!!!! I loved all the characters. Please Nora write another book following this one???? So sad it’s finished ..Version: 3.1.1

5 books in 3 weeks!!This is the greatest way for me to read/listen to books. With my phone in my back pocket I can listen while cycling, gardening, cooking, walking, driving and in bed without my arms getting tired holding up a book. Thanks Audible!.Version: 3.10.2

New HopeI downloaded this book sitting at the airport where I booked a flight to get away for the weekend as my wife & I were preparing to separate & most of the decisions have come from the way I feel and the fact that I have no fight left in me to save our marriage, after listening to this audiobook on the way down it has ignited my fight levels through the roof & a day later Re booked a flight to go home, all I want to do is go home and share this book with my wife and hope it’s not to late Most inspirational book I’ve read Hopefully I’m not to late to put this into practice.Version: 2.28

Have to hit play twice EVERY timeThe app works fine except for one major annoyance - when I press play, it plays for a split second then stops again. I have to press play a second time for it to start properly. This has been a persistent bug for a long time over many versions. The play/pause button is the one button you use the most in this app, and having it be persistently broken is a pain. This seems like a truly core piece of functionality that should work flawlessly every time, like the accelerator pedal on a car. I think it’s time audible finally knuckled down and fixed this one..Version: 3.0.1

Thoroughly enjoyableI’d never read any of the Sherlock Holmes stories having never really been interested in older crime solving stories. I tend more towards supernatural or paranormal romance (with the occasional mystery or crime thrown in.) But I really enjoyed Stephen Fry narrating his own publications “Mythos” and “Heroes.” His voice is soothing, warm and entertaining. He does the different characters voices so well, you never mistake a character for another. He just seems to draw you into the story. I was surprised to find I thoroughly enjoyed the different mysteries solved by the famous detective. The thing I liked the most was the relationship between Sherlock and Dr Watson. You felt the genuine love, comradeship and mutual respect between them. The sincere sorrow that Watson felt when Sherlock “died” bought a tear to my eye. The only thing I would like to have seen in this particular anthology, is the stories in a more chronological order. No complaints otherwise..Version: 3.38.1

This should be a 5-star review-30 second rewind goneUnfortunately recent updates of the app changed what was an elegant solution to an important feature to one that doesn’t work at all. In past versions Audible app had a feature that quickly allowed you to change the rewind or advance buttons from ones that rewound to the beginning or ends of a chapter to one that changed the buttons to rewound or advance 30 seconds only. Even better you could tap these buttons multiple times and, for example, quickly replay a short passage you need to hear again. The most recent updates killed this value-added feature and made it so you have to swipe backwards and forwards an indeterminate time. This feature is value taken away! I am an avid listener and have purchased almost 600 books from Audible. The content and some of the narration are excellent. I hope they pay attention to their frequent listeners and fix their clunky new software versions to the great tools they had until recent releases. It is frustrating when an app you use regularly changes from excellent to mediocre..Version: 3.23

Gratitude for audio booksI’m very grateful for audiobooks. As a child I struggled with reading. I always had difficulties and shame because I didn’t read as fast as other children and found it difficult to retain the information I read. I would have to re-read sentences, passages, pages, and chapters because I would read the words but not formulate a picture or the information being imparted. I disliked and refused to read book up into a young adult. As an adult reading books has become significantly easier, but I still struggle with speed reading and retaining the information. Time has also become very limited in which to sit, or lay down and pick up a book and read. I find myself able to listen to audiobooks while getting ready in the morning for work, driving to and from locations, doing daily activities while at home or running errands, and getting ready for bed. Without audio books I could have never gone through the multitude of books which impart so much knowledge and stories to enchant the mind. Thank you Audible.Version: 3.5

Issue with the new updateI love the app, and the selection of books, but I don’t like that the new update removes the option to sort your library by unfinished books. I have books in my collection that I started a while ago but stopped, planning to listen again later. Now they are very hard to find as I cannot just see the unfinished titles. Can this please be fixed?.Version: 3.20.1

Small change.Love this app and have enjoyed the fact that I can download and listen in poor service with no loss of quality. However I do love to enjoy many books over a weekend and would love to organize a folder to enjoy linked books together or to be able to shuffle titles to reflect an order of listening to. Have enjoyed the quality of narratives and refer to all my friends. I also wish I could let friends borrow my paid for books and share my new fave with them to get them hooked and loving new titles. Thanks..Version: 3.29.1

So amazing👏😎💙Best app ever, I can always listen to it when ever I want and it’s just so handy! The books are ever so entertaining and I listen to them whenever I can!!! I highly recommend the twilight series fir ANYONE over the age of 10 because they are so thrilling, romantic, emotional and scary all in one series of audiobooks! I can listen to audible whenever because you don’t need WiFi or data or even service to listen to a book! The only improvement I can think of is don’t make people pay for books, I reckon if they sign in they can listen for free buy it’s understandable why you make people pay! The books aren’t expensive though so don’t worry about cost! You can listen to a range from kids fairytales to adults drama realities! I listen to audible in the way to school in the car, on the bus, when I’m out running, when I’m cooking, when I’m in the shower, we. I’m cleaning out u horse’s stables, before bed, in the mornings and basically any chance I can get! I highly recommend it and if you download the app HAPPY LISTENING👏❤️👍🏻.Version: 3.5

Handy for listening on the moveThis app would have got five stars from me but for one major hiccup, the thumbnails for the library don't contain the books number in a series. I have listened to stories that were the last in the series because of this. Many people like me listen whilst out walking, jogging or cycling. We download the series in advance and go to the next book while out. This app does not help. Other than that it's perfect. Another problem is the hit and miss way that the program picks up where you leave off listening on other devices. Typically when moving from listening via Echo to the phone. Sometimes the software recognises that I had listened elsewhere and asks if I would like to carry on where I had left off on the other device and sometimes it doesn’t and I have to search out the location physically. This can be a nuisance when in a hurry. As I said before it is a brilliant app for listening on the go..Version: 3.23

Really nice way to hack my lifeI started using Audible a month or two ago when I realized that there are significant blocks of time in my life that I am not using as well as I would like. Specifically, the time I spend driving or exercising constitutes up to two hours per day that are necessary but not very intellectually stimulating. I had been listening to music when I exercised, and then it dawned on me that I could just as easily listen to audiobooks. There are any number of books I want to read but don’t because I have a hard time getting to them. Audible has helped solve that problem for me. Initially I thought listening rather than reading would be an inferior experience, but in fact after listening to a few books I’m finding that my attention and retention are comparable. Whenever possible I try to co-purchase the audio book with a Kindle version so I can switch between reading and listening. I think Kindle’s “whispersync” system for switching back and forth could be improved, but I can live with it. Overall I’ve been really pleased with the Audible experience..Version: 2.31.2

EvolutionI downloaded the app when I started a journey of self discovery. I was lucky enough to have a 3 hour commute each week where I dove into books on mindfulness, psychology and self discovery. I no longer commute for work but carry the books and there teachings closely with me. I’ve just now returned to audible to accompany me walking my long rural driveway. On this morning after the completion of Joe Dispenza’s ‘you are the placebo’ I stand here In a pure state of gratitude for all I am and the journey that delivered me here. Thank you Audible, blue tooth and all the people in this world that take the time to write down there thoughts for others to share. Wes Bending.Version: 3.24.1

Subtitles SupportI wish with the kind of price we paying for the monthly subscription it should come with subtitles support or something like kindle and Audible paired together so we can read and listen according to the need. But it an excellent masterpiece and whoever developed it must be a fan of bed time stories. A salute to the inventor. It would be another masterpiece if you can merge Kindle & Audible together. Thanks.Version: 3.34.1

Many faultsWhere is the free category? Can’t buy and download directly in the app? Seriously!?!? Work it out with Apple! I’m sure you can find a way..Version: 3.1.2

‘Reading’ books I would have never readI used to read maybe 1 book every two years, now I listen to up to 20 a year. Anything from Homer’s Odyssey to Harry Potter... I can ‘read’ ANY book. Boring novel assigned by uni? No problem, I can finish it in a week if I want to. I CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH how amazing Audible is. Especially every book narrated by Stephen Fry .. (this includes the entire Harry Potter series.....) please get Audible. Most paperback books can retail for up to $30.. I pay half that and get them read to me.... GET AUDIBLE.Version: 3.3.2

Absalom, AbsalomWritten in a modernist style, akin to Joyce or Conrad, Faulkner’s novel tells the tale of an opportunist settler, Thomas Sutpen, who colonises a small town by building a ranch, buying farm land and marrying a local girl. His mysterious past conflicts with his present when his daughter falls for a young man who turns out to be Sutpen’s son by a Haitian woman. The novel is framed through the eyes of Quentin Compson who pieces the narrative together with the aid of different narrators. This is for one thing a fascinating depiction of racial tension in the American south as the jealous brother, Henry, confronts his attitudes towards his sister’s love for the mixed race, half brother. It also has elements of the gothic tradition as Sutpen is both a romantic protagonist and the ultimate source of disorder. Faulkner leaves his reader feeling like the Compson character as shards of the past are scattered about until the combined destruction starts to form some sort of meaning. This is well worth it: follow the punctuation when reading..Version: 2.30

Better than singing out loud!!Used to listen to music while I was out walking, but then often found myself singing along out loud - not good for those around, so tried listening to audiobooks and was hooked from the start. I now don’t need to worry about singing out loud, but can’t guarantee my facial expressions don’t make people wonder what I am listening to, as I get engrossed in the story line, I have even Caught myself saying “Oh no!” Or “Good” but hopefully people will just think I’m having a phone conversation. Basically what I am trying to say is give audiobooks a try, you get the first book free, like me you might become hooked. I’m have certainly listened to more books lately than I would have read, some books I might not otherwise have read and found them compelling listening.. my only suggestion to anyone giving it a try, listen to the sample first, that way you know whether you are going to be able to listen to that persons voice for a number of hours. I did return one book simply because I hadn’t done that and just couldn’t get away with the readers accent..Version: 3.16.3

Open book is just that! Completely open and raw!Thank you Jessica for opening up your life, your struggles, your truths, fears, and greatest joys! You are truely inspiring. I lost my mother to alcoholism and wish she could have found a way out of the darkness. You gave me some insight into what she may have been going through. I believe she had a very toxic relationship with my step dad that started her drinking, with a very fast and sad progression. You are so very lucky to have such a beautiful husband and children and group of BFF’s and family to support and love you ! We all grow and change and cannot be expected to be the same people we were 20 years ago wanting the same things. I Take my hat off to your honesty and thank you for sharing with the world what a true light you really are!.Version: 3.18

Brilliant!I listen to Emily, Frank and Alun on the podcast because they are so funny and entertaining. I had no idea about anyone’s background. When I heard about Emily’s book I was intrigued due to my love of dogs and the loss the title gave away as I have had this experience with a sibling. She blew me away... I was left so stunned... an incredible writer, I felt like I was there, like I lived it with her, she is so talented..! Just stunned! She’s no longer just that funny woman on the radio with Frank. So so so much more. It literally is the best thing I’ve ever listened to on audible and a total must have for anyone thinking about giving it a go! Can’t say enough good things about it.. you laugh and cry.. even if you’re on a packed train it seems (which I was for the entire book) god knows what people thought, but who cares! It was brilliant...!.Version: 3.5

Most used app on my phone by far!!Download Audible now and you won’t regret it!!! I have been a listener since early 2012 and have been addicted ever since. I love the never ending expanse of books on a huge range of subjects. The vast majority of narrators are superb but I always sample a book before I purchase because a wonderful book can be completely ruined by a poor narrator. I love that you can return a book but I don’t think I’ve ever used that function. Some of the new podcast are great as well. It is a little annoying that you can buy a book straight from the app but have to go to the main website, but it doesn’t take more than a minute or so. Can’t say enough good things about Audible (I have even got friends and family addicted also!) All in all is a brilliant app and the amount of free promotion and word of mouth praise I think I should be on the payroll!! Free book by any chance?!! (Worth a try!) 😉 Download Audible now and you won’t regret it!!!.Version: 3.2.1

Just a little less than perfectFirstly, let me say that I love Matthew McConaughey (MC). I love the way he looks, the way he sounds and the way he acts. What man wouldn’t? He’s cool! I enjoyed this book. In one way, it’s an easy read - it’s like drinking warm cream: smooth and delicious, comforting and satisfying. Did I say satisfying? Well, not quite. Having just finished the book I’m struck by how unsatisfied I feel. Did I want more? Was there some unfinished business? What is niggling at me? I think it’s this. Throughout the book MC is living multiple lives, his own and the characters is plays. He is searching for himself in many ways, examining what it means to be MC. And by the end of the book, it feels like he is telling me that he has found the real MC. It’s like a kind of coming of age. The problem for me is that I didn’t believe it. Maybe it’s because some of his stories within the book are so unbelievable. Did he really do that? Did he really say that? At the end, I wondered whether he was still living a character he wanted to be, rather than himself. Nothing wrong with that - it’s a great character. I hope he brings out a sequel in 20 years. I will certainly buy it because I really want to know who he becomes. He has left me wanting more. Maybe that’s the hallmark of a great book. Can we have a longer book next time please? This book is a little less than perfect. But if I’ve learned anything about MC from his book, I think he would be ok with that..Version: 3.40

Audio books - outlander series.I have enjoyed the books for years now, reading and re reading again and again, but eyes are getting weak so I have purchased the audible versions. These versions are every bit as enthralling as the actual books. And the lass who vocalises the characters does an amazing job. Some light background noise on occasion can be heard, but not enough to detract from the stories. Can’t wait for the next volume. I wish other authors put so much detail in their books, it is the detail that allows you to lose yourself in the story. Thank you..Version: 3.8

Then it would be Perfect ...I love the app. And all the extras. I love that I can add notes. It would love if they had “CC” closed captions. They mentioned it in a YouTube... but must be bata still ?.Version: 3.38

Thoroughly researched story told wellI really enjoyed listening to this book. It taught me a lot about so many different things - geography, archeology, anthropology, navigating by stars, sea currents, diet, linguistics, how history is passed down and so on, and how all of these aspects came into play when researching and trying to understand the evolution of Polynesian peoples (from a European perspective). One thing I longed for was a map to look at to understand more fully where all the islands are in relation to each other, though it was well explained how far apart they are and how and why it was challenging for European explorers to discover them in the first place, hence the premise of the book in the first place. I also wanted to see written down some of the Polynesian names and terms to gauge accuracy of pronunciation..Version: 3.17.1

Design this app for humans!!!The app is pretty bad right now! I’m frustrated and annoyed that I have less accessibility since I updated, 15 mins ago. Navigating to an author I like is not possible from a book page or my library, I have to go type the name in search now. I can’t see my credits anywhere, I think I have 2, but I can’t tell by looking anywhere and the help page seems to be for a previous version of the app as it references non existent buttons. I can’t tell if the book I’m looking at is part of a series, book 1, or book 10? I have dabbled in app design in uni, by no means an expert, but it looks like audible is taking a nose dive in user design by oversimplify to the point of being too difficult to search for a new book to listen to. Why would you give people less navigation and access to information?.Version: 3.41

Brilliant Alternative To ReadingI started listening to audible books a couple of years ago. After a day at work in front of a computer screen, my eyes need a break. I used to read the same page of a book over & over again & then fall asleep. I find listening to books a fabulous way to relax & have often favoured this pastime at the end of the day when winding down. I’m also hopeful that by listening to audio books, my listening skills continue to improve, which can only be a good thing! The only reason why I’m not giving a 5 star rating to Audible is because sometimes the quality of sound is crackly & then cuts out completely. I think it’s happened with all the titles that I have listened to. Aside from that, top marks!.Version: 3.5

Great bookI loved this book and have now renewed respect for our NHS Doctors and Nurses. After listening to this couldn’t help wanting to do more and my dislike for Jeramy Hunt has gone up a notch. I really believe that if you are going to have control of something you should at least first find out how it works to understand it. Now back to the book I listened to it while driving backwards and forwards to work and must at times looked like a right numpty smiling away and at times laughing out loud this is a book that’s really easy to listen to and it also entertains but has a sad side to it too. I felt sad when it came to an end which doesn’t happen to me very often. The next time I go to A&E I’m going to be seeing it in a very different light. This book is a must read/ listen to book. I loved it..Version: 3.1.1

Best app I have, but can’t transfer from my iPhone or iPad to my WatchI’ve been an Audible member for over 15 years (well before being merged w/Amazon). It’s my favorite App and I use it more than any other. I have ADHD and LOVE to read but get stuck trying to read traditional books and retain the story or information. With Audible I’ve averaged almost 5 books per month with each book’s average length of about 11hrs. Here’s the big “but”. I have Audible Apps on my iPhones, iPads and MacBook but it won’t relay to either of my two watches. I get unnecessary Apps like JetBlue but no Audible. If anyone knows what I can do to fix this I would be grateful. Being able to listen to Audiobooks without my iPhone nearby would be incredibly useful but I just cannot figure out why it won’t show up on my list of Apps on my Watches. Despite my Watch problem I give this App my highest recommendation. This goes especially for my brothers and sisters that suffer from ADHD, impaired vision or other maladies that makes tradition reading difficult or impossible. It’s an awesome subscription service and App especially if you’re more successful than me in getting it on your Apple Watch..Version: 3.5

Life by Keith RichardsThe hilarious opening chapter sets the feel and themes of what’s to follow and left me shaking my head incredulously. Keith can clearly spin a great yarn. Rich descriptions of his childhood in Dartford, detailed a seeming no man’s land of post war Britain trying to find its way from the old to the new. Keith’s guiding lights were the Chicago blues artists, who faded in and faded out across the Atlantic airways through the antennae of his transistor radio. Together with the influence of his musical family, and a chance meeting with Mick Jagger (who lived in a posher part of town) a partnership was forged that became the Rolling Stones. Keith rambles at times, yet he rambles with a fierce hearted loyalty and insight into the populace of musicians, women, staff and personalities, who came and went from his life; some of whom who also shaped the face of the sixties and seventies. It’s a gripping tale. I loved hearing Keith speak himself - such a rich, gravelly and warm voice - a welcome relief from the monotony of Depp’s narration and the south London accented overkill of the second narrator..Version: 2.33

LOVE IT!I have been using audible for well over 10 years now...before there was an Australian site for it and have always enjoyed it. As an avid reader who was losing her sight, it allowed me some of the enjoyment I used to get from books. When the sync with kindle became available, I was so excited, I could make the font HUGE...and read til my eyes tired and then listen and go to and from. The ONE issue I have with sudible, is that when you buy a book from kindle, you can now get the audiobook for a few dollars. If, however, I use my credits, and want the kindle book, I have to pay full price for it. It makes my subscription a way of wasting rather than saving money because I ALWAYS want both. I don’t want to stop my subscription however I find myself accumulating credits because it’s just cheaper to buy the book and add the audiobook. Could the reversal be organised, so that when I use my credit, I can buy the kindle book for a few dollars? I have made this suggestions quite a few times through various means of contacting audible....and always told, it’s something that is being worked on.... I’d be so greatful when it happens. Thanks audible for many hours of listening.... Lisa.Version: 3.12.1

Don’t bother waste of timeI heard that this app was really good (from youtubers my first mistake!) and it’s a waste of time I brought a book to listen too. that’s a massive issue as there is no buy button you have to jump through hoops to find that option and when you do finally get that it doesn’t let you listen to it. it will only let you listen to the sample which was 3 minutes and then you must buy to get more funny thing it I already brought it... Don’t waste your time.Version: 3.19

Heart changer!Lysa does an amazingly transparent, simple, compelling and vulnerable job in describing and walking out forgiveness. While so much of this book is stuff that we know the way she goes about it is very refreshing and encouraging. Sharing her own journey and experiences in an honest and raw way is Incredibly helpful, challenging and inspiring. The inclusion of bitterness and codependency is a powerful component of this book.I will read the book again. I will do the study. And I will recommend it to others. You don’t have to be going through or have gone through what Lysa did in order to benefit from this book. I believe it’s a book that everyone should read. While every part of it will be for everyone I believe everyone can get something life-changing from it. here are two quotes that I loved from the end of the book about forgiveness. “ Even the most imperfect messy forgiveness filled with hesitation and resistance is better than letting bitterness have its way with your heart.” “You don’t have to cooperate with forgiveness perfectly just progressively for it to be good.”.Version: 3.40

A book worth readingIt is a joyful experience reading this book, it touches most of the questions I have in my mind about eastern and western, how and why we sapiens do things our way. It greatly lifted my happiness feeling because I was led into a new world of thinking. Highly recommended to anyone who is still curious..Version: 3.2.1

The right format for the right timeI love reading. I love books. But sometimes it’s hard to carry the books you love with you or find the space for them at home and so I turned to Kindle. Then I took a job that saw me in the car for two hours a day and I turned to Audible. And it is great. Fantastic! It takes a little getting used to and it can be easy to drift off and loose your place (or even fall a sleep - but not whilst driving) and you have the extra advantage/disadvantage of the skill of the narrator (which can make or break a good book) however when it is good; it is glorious! I now listen when I walk, when my partner watches something on TV I’d rather not, when people watching anywhere, when running on a treadmill. Every media has its place. But I still love books :).Version: 3.9

Time travel but not as you know it.I’m a huge fan of time travel books and have read or should I say listen to most if not all genres around this subject and therefore reading the reviews of this adventure I thought I would get my toe into this the pool once again to which end I was extremely satisfied with this version of time travel the author is as good a wordsmith is not better than many of the more prominent well-known and expected authors of this genre likewise the reader (this will become obvious if you read the book) performs his role superbly to which extent on occasion I thought there was more than one male voice that story is very portable and perhaps like many people who enjoy time travel one believes oneself or hopes oneself might one-day become a Time Traveler in this case it offers a more exciting and realistic proposal. Please forgive any grammatical errors as I am dictating this as I drive to work.Version: 3.4

There could be major improvements to this appThe app worked better before, after all these updates the app for IOS is very flaky. Cuts out, freezes, stops, won’t load, a whole mess of things. My rating has gone down for this app since the quality has gone down significantly..Version: 3.1.1

Thank youI just wanted to say thank you for sharing your story with the world. I had a totally different upbringing to you. I was raised in a loving family that always empowered me and always told me how special I am. I went through life without a care in the world never pushing myself. I never studied as hard as I good, I never worked as hard as I could. It’s made me soft. Over the last few years I have become aware of my own flaws and have been actively changing my life and habits in order to reach my true potential. By listening to your story and seeing how much you suffered and kept going, it has made my efforts seem minuscule and I thank you for it. Just like you say, it is when we get comfortable that we get soft, and just because I have become better than I was it does not mean I have become everything I can be. Thank you for reminding me to always stay hungry and to keep pushing myself. God bless you..Version: 3.2.1

Stunning moving funnyI’ve been a fan of Kate Clanchy and her students’ poems since I discovered them through Twitter and then bought the anthology “England Poems from a School” which I’ve been urging on friends and family ever since. So I was keen to read this account of her teaching career. I downloaded the Audible version rather than Kindle edition mainly because I had a free credit but I’m so glad I did as the book really benefits from Clanchy’s wry, precise delivery and the restrained anger of some passages. She is honest about her own relatively privileged position, and the dilemmas, dangers and tensions of teaching creative writing - but above all the book sings with the lives and experiences of her students. I cried quite a lot, and laughed - can’t recommend it highly enough - especially if you are a teacher or a parent.Version: 3.5

Give the Audible tech team a break...Like everyone else, I was really frustrated by the app not working all day yesterday. But this is apparently the first time this has happened for people who have using this app for years, and yet some of these reviews are acting as if Audible is an absolute shambles because of one bad update, with, ‘don’t you test your apps before updating?’ etc. Oh please, just get off your high horses!!! Yes, they probably *do* test their updates, and that’s why this is such an unusual occurrence. My guess is that the audible tech team have been getting grief and working around the clock to get this fixed and get back online (which it now is), so honestly, can we all just give them all a bleeding break and remember that firms are made up of occasionally fallible human beings who are usually doing their excellent best?!.Version: 3.12.1

Loses my placeI love listening to books and have been enjoying that there are so many available on audibles. I keep encountering problems though...I prefer to listen at 1.25 speed and it reverts back to 1.0 with every pause. I’ve learned I must bookmark frequently because I will undoubtedly be at the beginning of a book no matter where it left off (it divides books into fours and each of the 4 has chapters 1-11 or so, so book 2 has chapters 1-11 too instead of 12-21 making it close to impossible to figure out where you are...at minimum very time consuming.) and have to listen to recognize whether or not I’ve been there yet. Also, I’ve learned to listen to what chapter the narrator names just so I will be able to find my soon to be lost place in the event that the bookmark too fails. The version of the app that comes up on my iPhone quickly doesn’t have bookmarks, so I have to hit the home button, find the actual app and only there can I reset the speed and set the bookmark or retrieve a bookmark. I find the most frustrating thing is that it keeps returning to the beginning of the “book” I was in instead of the place in the chapter..Version: 2.29

A Little Happier moreso!Having relished Derren's original hard copy of "Happy" I was delighted by the cornucopia of intelligent research and insights that were proffered in the text. I went on to listen further in the audio version on my daily commute, absorbing and mentally ingesting every topic that might alleviate my overactive thought processes on those nagging questions of my own self. How fortunate that Derren furthered indulged us with "A Little Happier" as a sweet dessert for those who wish not to have the guilt of not digesting the original. This time narrated by Derren himself and hoping that there would be no subliminal phrasing that might cause me to crash my car. Yes it took 56 miles from start to finishing the audio version, the original safely with other loved books at home, and felt delighted I chose this very day to listen to it. Now I really ought to break as many habits as I have the many ways I justify my actions, from this refresher. My dear Mother always tells me to KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) and I would hope to think that this is the assurance Derren also gives us in this wonderfully neat edition of his original book..Version: 3.37

Great selectionWonderful selection.I love to listen while going for a walk. Only criticism is that it is a bit pricey...hence the 4 stars review..Version: 3.24.1

Breaking the Habit of being yourselfFinding Dr Joe Dispenza’s work to access my inner world of the Divine has been a source of great gratitude. Through his years of study about the effects of stress on our lives and bodies he have provided scientific evidence of how we can change our reality from destructive behaviours and habits lived in stress to creative mastery over our lives through understanding of quantum physics, epigenetics and the effects on the brain. Dr Joe Dispenza write clearly the dynamics of how this can be achieved through investing our energy into this work through meditation. I look forward to meditation on a daily basis as I am finding that the more I practice this skill I am rewarded with a wholeness and energy that is overcoming years of anxiety, fear and frustration and extreme tiredness..Version: 2.33

Bookmarks......doesn’t work. One day they’re there, next they’re gone! What’s the point of adding a function that doesn’t work? I suggest you add a bookmark button and show a dialog popup telling listeners to get their pen and paper out because you can’t be bothered to deliver what you set out to do..Version: 3.24.1

Literally changed my lifeAnyone who knows me knows I'm dyslexic and I hate to read, I hate typing even more and have never liked it. Since graduating highschool I've probably gone threw 8-12 books as I found them to be a pain. This year I decided that my new years resolution was to listen to audio books. I've gone threw over 80 books and it's only September. I'm crushing them while I'm driving and working out. I've lost 40lbs and my dog is even healthier because we're walking more. I got a promotion at work because I have more information and I'm helping out in more ways. Honestly I wish someone would have told me that this was a real option sooner..Version: 3.33

Annie Grace This Naked MindThis audio was life changing for me. I highly recommend it !! I have learned so much as far as the unconscious mind and how it controls our emotions and feelings of how we see alcohol in our lives!! By changing your unconscious beliefs it allows you to let go and be free from the “poison”!! Our minds are so powerful!! Changing the way you think about alcohol gives you the power to eliminate alcohol from your life!!.Version: 3.32.1

Music???? Never heard of itAudible has taken over my phone as the #1 source of sound entertainment while driving, exercising and even gaming. Listening to a book and letting your imagination run rampant in the world that book creates is such a joy. Everybody should use audible, no matter what books you’re into..Version: 2.33

A Great ListenReturned to driving a truck for a living and loved enormously listening to this book being read to me on the thousands of kilometers I have driven over the past few days. It's made the journey pass well and carefree. The reader bringing both the story and all the characters to life as I have driven both through the day and night - well worth the money 👍👍.Version: 2.27

Great but....I love to listen to the books but it would be better if I could read along at the same time. I’m dyslexic so use read and write software that can highlight the book as it’s read to me. If audible could do this too, it would be perfect. I am a visual dyslexic and a kinaesthetic learner. Listening on its own, doesn’t store in my short term memory so makes listening and retaining material impossible. Sometimes I need to re read a line to understand it and audible is on to the next sentence before I can process the information I need to! So frustrating...also being read to, on its own, I have found, sends me to sleep! I would really like to enjoy the books more and remember what they have said. I hope these simple changes can be made in the future? J.Version: 3.2.1

Bring back option to hide finished titles, for 5 Stars.I’ve been an audible member for about 20 years ( whenever the service started). I have well over 1000 titles in my library (most purchase, prior to new system, with free titles). I occasionally listen to portions of one book, before switching over to another (especially, when a desired preorder becomes available). Previously, it was easy to locate books that I needed to return to, by hiding all finished titles. Since the new system was unveiled, this has been reversed. I don’t quite understand the utility of being able to see all titles in your library that you have already completed. Showing titles that you haven’t started is if some use, but it fails to show anything that even has a few seconds played. So if I accidentally tap on the wrong title and get past “This is Audible”, prior to going back and selecting the title I actually want, it will no longer show up as not started. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!! Please fix this for your most loyal members!!! A secondary improvement would be to extend the Apple Watch Complication, so that it will permit control / book selection of titles on your paired iPhone, rather than having to download the book to your watch..Version: 3.36

Mind blowing!This is seriously one of the best books I’ve read that bases actions of success on the mentality and thought patterns required. It gives a very clear outline of what to do practically, how to think before, during, and after success is obtained, and the effects/outcomes of actions habitually made. It offers a very real, and relatable mindset and offers hope that Grant Cardone’s mentality can be adopted and adapted to each individual to the attainment of their own dreams. I highly recommend this book to any aspiring entrepreneur and a healthy dose of application of the principles mentioned therein. Worth the time and the money!.Version: 3.0.1

ABSOLUTELY LOVE-please fix sleep timerI ABSOLUTELY LOVE my audible app!! I’m an avid listener & overall have not had any issues. Once I purchase a book it automatically (within seconds) appears in my library for download which is EXCELLENT transition time. My only minor complaint is when I use the sleep timer and turn it off BEFORE the time has run out, it ALWAYS goes to sleep 2 minutes after I turn OFF the timer. I turn off the timer because I want to continue listening without sleep timer on. Yes I know TWO minute is minor issue but can be very annoying waiting for story to stop in 2mins so I can restart play! So would appreciate the fix in next update. My thought on new update is a way to arrange our library. Right now they’re arranged by purchase date until you listen& then it’s most recent listen. I would love ability to separate by author, type, book series etx. Something like that would be great for finding old favorites. EVEN BETTER IDEA...if you could develop an alert to let readers know when there is a NEW BOOK RELEASE IN SERIES we already own! When you have large library it’s hard to remember what books your waiting on the next in series! Would DEFINITELY increase my already long list of purchases. Overall GREAT JOB! I RECOMMEND ALL THE TIME! Just fix the 2mins turn off glitch when I turn OFF timer (before it runs out) & please consider library organization ideas!.Version: 3.9

Love this appI love this app because you can use it offline and it is very user friendly. It’s very easy to jump forward or back in your book and the selection of books is amazing. Overall one of my favourite apps and I would definitely recommend.Version: 3.45.1

Change for change sakeThe app still plays books and you can download them. Well done, five stars for that. But, I’ve deducted three stars for the new re-design - late June 2019... The app had been absolutely fine. And yet, the decision was made for the default page to be Home, rather than My Library. On the Home page, I have the option to “Pick up where you left off...” but it’s not aligned properly on the screen (I use an iPhone 7 at the moment) and chops off the title next to it. I could pick up where I left off more easily from My Library, and see more titles, to be honest. Next, I can look at “Your recent additions” but again this looks odd and chops off half of the title next to it - the alignment is off again, much like the “Pick up...etc” option. There‘s quite a lot of empty white space that you can enjoy scrolling through to get to recommendations and Best Sellers, but you still can’t buy anything through the app. These are exactly the same as you’d find on the webpage, but just fewer of them and therefore less choice. The change to the Home page default was unnecessary and brings nothing to the app. So, please, just default to the Library page. It’s all there. If I want to look at the oddly aligned Home page, I’ll go there if I need to. Please stop making it the default. It’s not a pleasant or useful place to be. It’s not difficult to buy, or choose, titles from the website. (And the Home page looks just as awful on a 2018 iPad Pro. So there’s that.).Version: 3.8

C+ Could ImproveLike the intelligent but unmotivated kid in high school, this app does everything it needs to get a pass mark, however having gained the C+ grade, then refrains from putting in even a tiny bit more effort. Examples of how a little bit more effort would go a long way: - Show the remaining time on books, the second and subsequent times it is performed. Currently just shows ‘Finished’ - Allow sleep timer to be set to any time. Currently only 8 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins etc instance, the second and sub - Allow a variable playback speed option via slider, or just gradients of 0.1x - Make an easy one-click option to change between regions. Currently have to log out, change region, log back in If you think I’m being hard on the app, I am, but it’s only because I know it can do so much better.Version: 2.33

The book thief: great story but bad narrationI would have given this book 5 stars if it wasn’t for the rushed narration. He was racing through the narrative making words unintelligible, also he was not able to change his tone like other good narrators do to suit female characters so the voice was noticeably only male and rushed. In an audible book half of listeners experience is through a good narrator the other half the book itself..Version: 3.11.1

My reviewThis app is really good fore people who like listening to stories while doing homework, drawing or relaxing. in general it is easy to use and the books are also very well presented. I’m always listen to it while I’m drawing it relaxes me. you can change the settings to your liking for instance the speed of how fast they read to you’re and more. Since I’m deslexic it is harder for me to read books so this app is a very useful way of making my life easier in reading I’ve had it for 2 years and have not ones regretted downloading it and if you install it I ashore you that you won’t regret it ether..Version: 3.16

An extraordinary soliloquyThis book is exquisitely written. I chose to ‘consume.’ it by Audible and I’m glad I did. The narrator did a superb job portraying the unwitting eccentricity of the title character (and the others). It shouldn’t be compelling from the off, the main character’s existence being at best, mundane, but it is exactly that which grabbed me. Whilst I could guess her backstory quite early on in the book, it remained totally compelling, as this character is one you feel you must nurture by at least reading to the end. This book brings the main character to life from chapter one. It is sad and uplifting, shocking and inevitable - I “LOL” on several occasions, but most of all, it made me think that behind those comments one hears in everyday life, from time to time which you judge to be inappropriate, there could very well be a reason akin to what this book ably reveals. In a nutshell.... Loved It!.Version: 2.37.1

Wish there was a percentage numberI adore Audible, it’s kinda expensive but the selection is unprecedented. It’s so great for encouraging more reading, as you can multitask while consuming a story. I love how there is brand new and popular books on here, and you also don’t have to wait like you might on Libby. In terms of the app, I wish you could purchase through the app. I wish that you could change the timer to view the percentage you were through the book, and that the overall progress timer was visible on books that were loaded in 2 parts. Finally, I wish that there were cost effective subscriptions for multiple books per month as I read maybe 2 audiobooks a week and find that Audible gets expensive so I rotate between this, Libby (which is connected to your library card, meaning that it’s free BUT they will only have a certain amount of copies of a book and you need to wait until a copy is available - like a normal library book - which can be loooong with new or popular books but has a STUNNING app interface that I believe is more intuitive than Audible), and less frequently I’ll listen to Scribd but the selection is average compared to either of the first two I choose and the app isn’t as pleasant as even Audible. Overall, I love Audible because of the range and I would keep it purely based off of that however I also enjoy the interface and the experience of the books. Overall, I.Version: 3.4

There’s no better way to to spend commutes and evening walksBooks on tapes used to require all kinds of physical tapes, taking up too much room, a total nuisance. No more. Audible solves the inconveniences of the old, replaced by a convenient way to read books while walking or driving without the dangers that would normally accompany pairing such tasks. Even if you do like reading normal books and ebooks, imagine being able to safely continue reading while in traffic instead of listening to mind-numbing music or even more mind-numbing news. You can! Plus, Audible takes up no room; no more will your car’s floorboard be filled with tapes, nor do you need to carry a bulky Walkman on your walks while stuffing your pockets with the tapes for the next few chapters. Just cue the app and start listening anyway, anytime. Speaking of time, Audible is my new favorite way to pass the time when I have nothing else to do, and to keep my mind sharp when my body is busy, but my mind is free. Give it a try. You’ll love it..Version: 3.38.2

Useless and rude customer serviceI loved the app until I upgraded my phone. (iphone XR)The app wouldn’t let me play back anything. I called and they attempted to help me troubleshoot the problem. It’s the app not the phone. Nothing worked so they had to create a ticket. They told me it would take up to five days to hear back from the back office team. Five days seem like a lot. I used this app daily. The next day I called back to see if someone else could help me. He looked at the ticket and told me the full details of my issue weren’t even on the file. We updated the ticket tried to help me troubleshoot still no results.7 days later still no call back. So I called again and was given answers like “I don’t know when they’ll call you” or “I don’t know,maybe” when I asked to speak to someone else because this gentleman did not have any answers for me his reply was “why do you want speak to someone else”. I had to hang up because he wouldn’t let me talk to anyone else. I purchased over $50 in credits before this happened. I canceled the morning that fees but let’s see how that goes..Version: 3.4

Audio Bible is brought alive by Ronnie MeekThe tones and vocal variety used by Ronnie Meek add to the enjoyment of the Scriptures which comes alive with his voice. Add to this the music used to counter any boredom that might raise its ugly head, I thoroughly enjoyed the 12 sections that the Bible is divided into, which brings me to my first recommendation. We are constantly told that that because of the size of the download it is divided into 12 segments. The listener has to work out which of the downloads start with the books of the Bible. It has taken me many months to work out which book aligns with which book of the Bible in the 12 volumes in the download😩 I would suggest marking some of the downloads with the names of the books they contain, in that it makes it easier to find. But apart from that Ronnie Meeks voice add to the enjoyment of this audio Bible. Many thanks to the very high quality of this product👏👏👏.Version: 3.5

The ultimate introduction to Western philosophy (if you have 38 hours to spare)This is a remarkably long audiobook, clocking in at nearly 40 hours, but it is worth every second. Russell’s commentary is insightful (and often accompanied by an amusing dry wit), Made all the better by Keeble’s superb delivery. Offers an insight into not only philosophy, but history and politics, giving something of a roadmap of the progression of Western thought in relation to other developments. Highly recommended..Version: 2.28.1

Great learning resource and entertainingI’ve used audible for about 3 years. In that time I have greatly expanded my knowledge base on a number of topics while doing menial tasks such as driving, tending to the yard and even while at work. With an extensive range of topics and multiple books on each, it’s easy to find something informative and interesting. I’ve never had a problem returning a book that I had not been satisfied with, even if I had listened to most or all of it. There is also nearly an endless selection of fiction books narrated by some excellent narrators. The way the narrators bring characters and situations to life is very impressive. (My favourite being R.C.Bray) If you haven’t listened to a story told by a good narrator before I’d highly recommend it. I’m very satisfied with audible, for the amount of education/entertainment I receive from an audiobook it’s very good value for money..Version: 3.16.1

Game changer for parents of young children who miss reading!A huge, and long-standing user of Audible. I used to love reading, turning pages in silence and becoming engrossed in whatever I was reading. Since having a child my reading time has become far more sporadic and often subject to endless interruptions. So I adapted. I listed to wonderful books while I drive around, do the shopping or while cooking. This app is easy to use, reliable and allows me to listen to the same book on several devices. I even have the choice to re-read from a different spot on my iPhone without losing my current place on the iPad if I feel like refreshing a different chapter. I wish all books were automatically created as Audible options. I highly recommend the monthly subscription option. It helps to remind me to keep reading and to make time for at least one new book a month. Great way to make time for yourself again..Version: 2.27

Must Read for all who seekThis is quite simply one of the best most confronting and horrific books I have ever read. I have averaged a book a fortnight for several years and this stands in the top few. If you are a fan of Napoleon Hill this will blow your mind. If you are not this will blow your mind. I have taken 100’s of pages of notes and doing all I can to implement the ideas in this book and it has changed my life on so many levels. Its horror lay in the truth that which I knew but could not explain. The greatness comes from intrinsic deep answers that come when you hear them and you will hear them. If you don’t then you are not human. This book is for anyone seeking greatness in themselves. It’s dialogue seems to be aimed at Men, but mums, wives and sisters and girlfriends would benefit greatly from this great book..Version: 2.32

Super handy, love it except for...Really not a fan of the new library storage system. I switch between my and my husband’s accounts regularly and it used to be if I downloaded an audiobook but switched to the other account I could still access the downloaded audiobook, but it no longer does. Mine and my husbands accounts are very intermingled: books for both of us, times we wanted a book but had no credits so bought it with the other’s account. Also because we’ve both been members for years we have 100+ books each so we have to scroll and scroll and scroll only to realize the book is on the other account. Please go back to the old way it was much easier for families like ours. On the upsides though the app is quick, simple to use, never fails to remember where I'm up to(which is super handy when reading epic fantasy) and the sound quality is exemplary. Very pleased with it and will stick with Audible for the foreseeable future (tho I'd love a fix for my downloading issue ;p ).Version: 3.20.1

Buy the bookFirst thing to say is that David Goggans is awesome. However, while I am truly in awe of the life he has lived compare to mine, at the same time I am frustrated with the mistakes he has made through his stubbornness. Although the audiobook provides that little bit more content than the written word, I am not sure but I enjoyed the breakout sessions where the narrator interviewed David. I think the narrator was a little too much in awe of David tried to hard to be his ‘bro’. I know that David Cassidy is a lot but I don’t think there’s any need for the narrator to do so-it wasn’t very impressive. Nonetheless the narrator does a good job generally of the narrating the book. It is for this reason that I might suggest buying the book over the audiobook. Thank you David for sharing your story. This is by far the best and most interesting autobiography I have ever read or listen to..Version: 3.2.1

Would certainly recommendWorks great on my phone. massive choice of non fiction, and an option to request books. Expensive books, costing in excess of £50, still cost just 1 credit, allowing anyone with little money the opportunity to own books they’d only otherwise get from a library. I can’t rave enough, but maybe I am overjoyed because I have had since 2014 and didn’t get chance to use it, and forgot all about it. I’d set up a direct debit and didn’t even notice the bill go out each month, so by the time I remember to check it out I had a collection of credits to use which feel almost free. Also you can return the books if you listen to them and didn’t like them, and have your credit returned for a new book. I might also add that if you have ran out of credits, the books are also all at reduced prices. The chapters are listed in a menu, there’s a sleep timer, I can’t find anything I don’t like. Would recommend!.Version: 2.29

Good appRecently got into audiobooks as I realised I need to make better use of my time on the drive to and from work. But please enable the feature to purchase directly from the app as it is quite clunky to have to go to the website to do that. Also I don’t know if the monthly rate is worth as I am likely to listen to more than 1-2 books a month..Version: 3.8

Amazing 💖💖💖If you are looking for a an app where you can search and buy thousands of audio books this is the perfect app 👌. The audio books have quality sound and always have a tester to start, so many features; sleep timer, speed of voice ect. Super easy and what you see is what you get. Couldn’t recommend more use it every day. Thank you audible 🙏.Version: 3.2.1

Laugh it upFrom the first day I heard the cackling laughter of Candace Payne, I was hooked. I was having a really bad week, I mean REALLY B.A.D. week. The pure joy from the Chewbacca Mom broke through a crack in my darkness and filled me with a glimmer of hope. Thank you for sharing this very personal and inspiring book with us all. I enjoyed the narration on Audible from Mrs. Payne herself. It made it all the more sweet. Thank you for your wisdom. I truly believe we would be best friends IRL.... totally in a non-stalkery way!!! All the way from Australia. “What if’s steal our hope and they drive a wedge in our relationship with Joy. Joy doesn’t fear the what if’s, she thrives on what can be” Candace Payne.Version: 2.28

Almost perfectGreat app, does what it needs to, BUT... The app is missing two important features. First is the ability to purchase titles from within the app. Probably has something to do with apple taking a cut of in-app purchases but it would be nice to at least be able to spend credits this way. I am astounded this next missing feature still hasn’t been added as I’ve seen people requesting it for literally years. Please please please please PLEASE, give us the ability to organise the books in the library on our devices into folders. Scrolling through a long list of books to find the right one gets old fast, and being able to organise them into groups of folders of author/series/genre/whatever would make this app perfect in my opinion. I wouldn’t even mind if the folders were local only and not shared between devices. On the whole, probably the best audiobook app and service out there, 4 stars for having almost everything but loses one for the lack of folders..Version: 3.10.2

So many choices to entertain, enlighten and enhance your brain power!I have so many titles read, yet an abundance just waiting for me to “crack open” and begin my journey. I usually have two or three titles in progress at a time, so Audible’s ability to remember where I left off, no matter what platform I last used, is an amazingly powerful tool. Almost every print book I purchase, I also get the Audible version, when available (and most are) and I find that I usually end up listening to the book. I love to read, but you just can’t do that while driving, or mowing the lawn, or anything other than sitting and looking at the book. For those who find a title that they need to absorb the content, listening while reading is a great aid for some learners. It really helped many of my students when I was a teacher and I believe that it helps most people to concentrate. For leisurely enjoyment, put in the earbuds and enjoy a great book or two, or three!! You won’t be sorry you at least tried!.Version: 3.43

Merge library optionsAs a pensioner I have family and friends who gift me books from their credits so I have books in libraries in Canada and Australia (no New Zealand Audible yet😔). Please can audible make it easier for the likes of me with multiple libraries to merge or access without a cumbersome logout process. Btw I love that you can swap back books, or return with credits given, thankyou for this..Version: 3.7

Fix Apple Watch Sync Please!!Love the app, been using it for years. However, the long anticipated Apple Watch app falls a long ways short. It takes forever to load a book (about an hour for standard size book), but once it completes the download, it plays perfectly. But then the trouble starts. The next time you return to the Watch app, the latest play position has been lost. I’ve seen it both return to the position when I first loaded the book on the watch, and also to the very beginning of the book. Either is extremely frustrating as you're left with scrambling around trying to find where you left off. Going to the app on the phone, restarting, syncing play position, tried them all and nothing corrects the loss of play position on the watch. Audible, please fix this. The app is so close to my favorite on my phone that this is more than a disappointment. Apple Watch Series 4, iPhone X, both with latest iOS and Audible app versions (as of today)..Version: 3.0.1

The “woke-est” book I’ve ever consumedWill probably need to listen to this book three times over to soak in all the wisdom it has to offer..Version: 3.32.1

Like a port in a stormLove audible, can’t speak highly enough - great books for myself and my son, awesome podcasts and love how easily it integrates across iPhone and windows computer with no issues. Only thing I wish is that we could share books more easily with friends - maybe a ‘mates rates’ for second hand books??.Version: 3.46

Incredibly helpful and easy to use ap!I am so impressed with this ap! I had caved on one of the ads for this ap on fb and saw that they had a free trial with two free books so I decided to try it. I listened to part of one book and then haven’t had much time to listen since and actually kinda forgot about it. I received an e mail today from audible which reminded me I needed to cancel my trial before being charged bc I wasn’t ready to pay the monthly subscription just yet and unlike most apps I found the customer service for this company was incredible! Right under settings in the ap lists a phone number and easy access to ur subscription information. I called the number to find out where I was in my trial and was impressed with how quickly they answered and told me I still had a few weeks left and she could cancel it now or I could enjoy the rest of it and call back to cancel the day before. She also returned the book I originally ordered bc I wasn’t that into it and now I have my two free book credits left! I highly recommend this ap to anyone bc of its easy to use settings, outstanding customer support, and wide section of books available! Great Job audible!.Version: 3.10.2

Not to be read lightlyI have hesitated to recommend this book to certain people because of the harrowing aspect of the stories of the women, each one of them. As a therapist I was profoundly impressed by the writing of Miriam’s experience, capturing the invisible torture, like watching someone drowning, then momentarily surfacing for breath, then going under again, and repeating over and over. It is something I have witnessed. The interview with the author at the end helped me take on board the idea of Hope in Hell. It felt as if I was in a ‘debrief’ following a traumatic event. When the story became difficult to hold, I continued reading because IT IS compelling. The author has such a marvellous way of understanding women and what women experience in some very difficult circumstances, yet this is NOT a ‘woman’s book’. The small details in the stories of the two main women characters were wonderful to read, like the difference the right seasoning makes in a great meal: the detail of a herb or spice. A very good book. I’m glad I read it..Version: 3.24.2

Amazing!!!At first I was in a debate on getting the audible monthly subscription but after using audible everyday it’s totally worth it. If you love books or just don’t have the time to read books but want to, then get audible!!! I love reading books but between school and work it’s hard to have the time to sit and read. Since I’ve got audible everyday I listen to it between classes and at work! I love audible, as of right now I’m listening to the Harry Potter series. Everytime I have to pause the book I get upset bc I just want to know what happens next. If you are too sure about the monthly subscription try the free month. If you don’t get done with that book after the first month or you aren’t into it cancel it. But if you get through the first book and you dig it keep it! Yeah it’s $15 a month but that beats paying $30 everytime you want a book! You get a new credit after each month and you get any book you want to listen too for that month. It’s totally worth it so give it a try!.Version: 3.18

Updates delete current infoIt's 3:30 am. Another nightmare wakes me. I reach for Audible on my iPad to distract my mind and help me find sleep. The usual library list is missing when I select 'cloud'. The two books I had going, one for sleep, the other for migraines gone from 'device'. The last thing I wanted to do was to have to wake up, rediscover the password, sign out of into my audible account so I could sign back in, refresh, and download both books again. If it were a migraine I'd woken with (and I do frequently) I wouldn't have a hope of seeing well enough let alone have the brain power to do what I've just done. Please, please, please, please, stop making signing in and out a condition of updating the app. I thought automating updates made life easier but it hasn't with Audible. That was March 2019. Of course, once I put the login details in it worked as usual. July 2019 and Audible app tries to open but shuts down almost immediately. Was there an update? Can't say it's a password issue since it's not open long enough. I don't how to live with out an Audible book in my daily life. :((.Version: 3.1.2

Really good bookI would firstly like to state this is a five star rating, although my comments may not read that way. It’s very hard to sum up this book but I will try. I spent a lot of time shouting at some of the characters out loud, finding myself truly frustrated at what I felt was their stupidity. Why would you do that? Why would you put yourself through that? But in the physiological horror that is involved in this story line, you are immersed in the characters minds. You start to understand the feelings and vulnerabilities of some people and the pure evil of others. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes thrilling story lines, and story’s told in a refreshingly different way. The narrator has a wonderful voice, and switches characters effortlessly. All in all a great read!.Version: 3.2.1

Loved thisAbsolutely loved this, both the story and the reading. This is a story about what could have been the way that Hamlet came to be written. It’s about Shakespeare’s life, his wife his children and it’s all imaginary but possible. It’s a story that really pulls you in and it stays with you after it is finished. The reading is perfect..Version: 3.38.2

This is what you've been looking for...This catalogue will provide the reader an intelligence level briefing that you will need to logically evaluate the current data coming from the Pentagon as well as the "New Age" folks. You will also find this useful if you've been lucky enough to have seen them yourself, because you will find that it has been reported by someone else in the past. This may aid in putting your sighting in context because we all know you can't let it go. All the craft classes are catalogued here, allowing the reader can begin to find patterns in history or geography. Don't mind the negative reviews, the author is quoting the most reputable researchers in addition to his own research. The greatest contribution of this work is the neatly organized fashion of data points allowing a picture to emerge. You can interpret the data yourself. The author does not inject analysis except for the last chapter. But even that is musing on possibilities. You will have a fuller picture of the phenomenon after listening or reading this work and isn't that what your after?.Version: 3.27

Generally great, buggy right nowI’ve been happily using the Audible app on various iPhones for some years now, and it has always performed flawlessly. I love being able to purchase books from the app using credits and the sleep timer (which prevents me from dropping off and missing hours of story). However just lately there’s been a bug. If I pause the playback, sometimes it fails to play the audio. The play button is on, but the timer doesn’t advance and there’s no sound. To fix it I have to restart my phone, which is inconvenient. I am currently using an iPhone Xs, running iOS 13.5.1..Version: 3.27.1

Rangers Apprentice: The Royal Ranger by John FlanaganAn all time favourite author of mine and a forever beloved series, I felt extreme nostalgia reliving the stories and adventures regarding Will Treaty, and loved how even my favourite characters have aged as I have. I loved the introduction of Maddie and as always, enjoyed the plot line in all its heartaches and triumphs. It was even better to listen to it on audible for the first time. I loved the little musical inserts in between chapters, made me feel like part of the adventure somehow. Any book in this series is always a five out of five for me. It’s a recommended book series for any book worm out there, or for those who aren’t book worms! Start with John Flanagan..Version: 3.32

Save your eyesTruthfully speaking, I have never been a fan of reading. This is a bit ironic being I hold a MSBA in business. But then after discovering Audible, wow I’m amazed with all that I am listening to. In my profession, I’m on the computer several hours in any given day. So by days end the last thing I want to do is pick up a physical book and read. Seriously, I use to turn articles into PDFs , use the computer ‘listen to’ feature, bout music in the background and write notes for my class. An occasional glass of wine certainly helped. One podcast for a required class (book was online) the professor who narrated the book was so monotone you’d fall asleep. By the end of the class session in the podcast I would have a great nap. So instead I went to the gym, Wales on the treadmill and stayed awake. The pint is that wa 14 years ago and technology as well as people’s skill have evolved over time for the greater good. I would especially live to thank audible for creating this platform and the many authors and narrators who provide valuable content. I’m constantly inspired and appreciate being an Audible ‘Superfans.’ Thank you from the bottom of my heart..Version: 3.41.1

Downward Beneficial MutationsAn insightful read. Beneficial mutations produce favourable changes but at the cost of junking a gene. Irreducible complexity is still going strong. The chances of multiple (2 or more) mutations occurring to produce a better gene is vanishingly small. Darwinism can make small ‘adaptive’ changes and fragmentation/ speciation but has no chance of macro evolutionary change. When are more biologists going to realise that macro evolution of molecular genetics is illogical and actually impossible"?Wishing it to be so doesn’t make it so. The Emperor has no clothes! Has good up to date info on Darwin’s Finches and mutations and what is Science. Thanks..Version: 3.4

Doesn’t sound particularly robust.I want to try it. I just enjoyed a Kindle purchase which had an audio option but the idea of having to use a computer to download and the other complexities and the difficulties force me to say, not yet thanks. Already tried to install this but without success. Perfect the technology and I will sign up- but I don’t use a computer only an iPad and have had enough frustration with the Kindle call centre trying to straighten things out on tech failures. Recently it took three calls, the first two “helpers” having hung up on me..Version: 3.2.1

Permanently life changingI healed from so many general ailments plus severe back problems after first listening to this audiobook 5 years ago. A thousand specialists could not do what Dr Sarno did for me and thousands of others overnight. Every other specialist treats the symptoms, Dr Sarno reveals the cause, and your brain simply hears it and gives up its grip on your pain. Miraculous book which I listen to regularly..Version: 2.33

Great story - could have better Australian connectionsGreat story and very well narrated. I like to choose Australian crime fiction especially where it is set in rural settings. A big suggestion I would make to Jane is a little more Australian research. We don’t have fields in Australia - we have paddocks. If this book changed every reference of fields to paddocks that would make a big difference. A bit of geographic research too - 500km north of Melb takes you to NSW. Yes yes I know it’s fiction - but. The fire scene at the end was a bit far fetched reflecting not a great understanding g of fire behaviour in the Bush. Lastly the reference to snakes - might be safer to refer to brown snakes not tiger snakes. The latter either don’t exist in that country or at best they are rare. Anyhow other than these things I loved the story..Version: 2.27

Audible BooksI’ve been a member on/off for many years. You pay a monthly/annual fee and get credits based on your subscription. The fee you pay is often less than the price of most audiobooks. You can pay for the book or use a credit. There are lots of reviews, some are fake but most seem to be genuine. I like that you can hear a 3-5 minute sample before purchasing. I have gotten credits refunded for books I was unhappy with, (books I didn't listen to completely). Customer service has been great. I had to discontinue membership for a while and lost nothing during the time I canceled my membership. I kept the credits I already had and all of the books I had in my library. Starting my membership again was easy. I do wish that reviewers would add ore detail instead of simply saying ”I like the book”. That’s not a review. Why do you like/dislike the book? Was it clean, full of profanity, sex, violence? Was this book fit for the whole family? Did the story flow, was the narrator easy to listen to; did they have an annoying voice, were the characters voices distinguishable? That’s a review! A review is meant to help other customers decide if they want to purchase the book or not..Version: 3.12.1

Love it!UPDATE: another several years in, and Audible is still the app I use EVERY day. Because it is the best! Bug fixes and design tweaks have kept it moving forward, without ever making me think “aw it was better before the update.” (Looking at you, iPhone!). Audible is the only app I would take with me to a desert island. Yes. It’s that good. UPDATE: it’s been 8 years now and other than the text messaging apps, Audible is easily the most frequently used and loved app in my phone, by far. With the recent improvement so it’s now possible to buy new audiobooks with credits through the app, it’s even better. Audible, I’m your #1 fan!! (Apologies to Stephen King.) I've been using this app daily for over 2 years now and love it. Are there bugs? Yes. Is it perfect? No. But the problems others complain about are really minor to me. Sleep isn't on the main screen, but one touch brings it up. For me what's relevant is how vast an improvement this player is over the only other I've used, Overdrive, which feels like something out of the Middle Ages by comparison. I know the Audible app's quirks and don't have a problem with them, because it works beautifully. Every day. <3.Version: 3.38.2

I love AudibleI love Audible! Listening to Audible books allows me the freedom to do all the boring things I do, while being entertained in the process. My jobs are made less onerous with the distraction of stories by the amazing storyteller’s writings of other people, worlds, places, & times. The reading of the books are brought to life through the wonderful voices of modern day bards. I was introduced to Audible by a friend many years ago who shared a book with me; that I had already read. The reader was so great that it brought a whole new dimension to the book for me; allowing me to sink into the story & deepen my imagining of the words of the writer. I have been hooked ever since. I invested in the monthly subscription straight away - it is the most user friendly & cost effective way to listen to Audible. I have never looked back!.Version: 3.8

Joyce FThis is a very good listen. It gives you very good insights into the benefits of reducing internet use significantly, why it is so addictive and how to overcome it. When you learn that companies like Facebook and Google base their whole model on the attention economy which essentially means the more time you spend on it the more money they make, it makes you think deeply about the amount of time you’re wasting away to these companies and how in years to come if you continue that way your life wouldn’t have changed much, you wouldn’t have achieved anything significant. This book isn’t anti technology as such, but gives you compelling evidence as to how our compulsive use of it is impacting our lives and minds in a negative way and gives you ideas for how you can use it to benefit you rather than allowing it to take away a part of your soul so to speak. A highly highly recommended book! You won’t look at internet and social media use the way same after!.Version: 3.33

Changing my life due to this bookI cannot recommend this book highly enough. I have suffered for most of my life with binge eating . It Started at 16 after falling into dieting for no reason except that my sister was doing it. This started a 30 year struggle that I could never quite understand. I have an audio library and countless hard copy books on how to stop binging but this is the first book I have ever found that has nailed it for me. I have a way to go to get the weight off but I finally don’t feel trapped by my need to binge at any given time. I feel free for the first time in my adult life. Thank you for taking the time to write this book. I truly appreciate it..Version: 3.18

Updated review.Still great. Still no Audible for Apple Watch! I really hope you will provide this great service on Apple Watch!Please make an Audible app for Apple Watch there are some nice improvements, but I can't focus on them as long as my chief gripe isn't addressed. At the very least, please tell your loyal customers whether you are trying to do this--or if you are even considering it. Audible is one of the apps I use out often. I bought an Apple watch so I could listen to audiobooks while walking my dog and could leave my iPhone at home sometimes. I have seen some work-arounds, but so far have not been able to listen to audiobooks on my watch. Audible doesn't show any inclination to develop an Apple watch app. I have asked. I guess I will try purchasing an audio book from iTunes, and see if that works. If it does (which I am not optimistic about) I might have to make my walking purchases from iTunes instead of Audible. I wouldn't like to ditch my Audible account to completely, as I love it. The hundreds of dollars I have spent on Audible books proves that. But I disappointed at this apparent indifference to the requests of Audible's most loyal customers..Version: 2.34

ExpensiveI love this app but the cost per month is just not worth the only one book per month that you are given..Version: 3.30

Worthy of a PhDI wondered when I bought this book whether I would learn anything new. Well, I sure did. In the 90s I was involved in domestic violence services in Queensland. The understanding now of coercive control and domestic abuse is a much better framing of what is going on that leads to the death of one woman a week in Australia at the hands of an ex lover. The author blends detailed qualitative stories from survivors, bystanders, family members, and X perpetrators. Supporting This understanding is the statistical data which is presented clearly and six synced Lee. The authors passion for her subject and for those who have been subjected to domestic abuse is quite moving. Jess deserves all the accolades she is accumulating..Version: 3.23.2

A pleasure to have.It's a simple task. Deliver audio books to listen to. This app and the business behind it do an unparalleled service to listeners and students a like. Reduced from 5 to 4 stars. I have an extensive library of books and finding my way through them is difficult. I would like some work done to make my library clearer, some sort of filing system and also to be able to tag finished books as to be ‘read again’, ‘on shelf’, or ‘box away’. The data from our managing of our library would surely be useful to audible also. I start with this app at 2 stars for various glaring omissions. And have watched over the years as both app and service have improved. Thank you for that. If we could just get more involved library organisation. Every library ever has been defined by its elegant organisation of books, so why not my audible library? And please please, we need to be able to access our books support material through the app. Ultimately an audio indicator notification that there is material to support an audio section and link to the material would be preferable, possibly with a cache so listeners could read this at their convenience. Audible is a corner stone of modern literature. We really need to see these, and I’m sure other refinements to this phenomenal service..Version: 3.18

BrilliantSince I joined audible I have listened to LOTS of books. I often take advantage of the daily special offer and am very pleased I joined. I find it so much better to listen rather than read. I can listen to a book whilst out walking and doing the housework is much less of a chore !! Update - finding it very tedious trying to download to my watch- takes ages- keeps saying not syncing!! Then sometimes won’t play- very frustrating. After last update watch app keeps freezing and won’t play properly- worse than before!! Update please please sort out the ‘downloading to watch’ problem!!!!! Update - since latest update app won’t open on my watch at all!! Update - deleted the app from my watch and reloaded it- seems to be ok now 🤞 January 2021- won’t download to watch at all now!!.Version: 3.40

Used to be a great app... gets worse with updates..Never used to have any problems with the simple app it used to be... recently it has been made more complicated and intrusive with advertising pop ups/or change of front screen (audible books which can’t be bought on the app) which is frustrating when just want to continue listening where I left off! The app on the iPhone works fine but the iPad app is often unresponsive when I open it (frozen) so I need to delete the app and re-download it eight times out of ten. Also, the syncing of ‘last place listened’ to of books between iPhone and iPad used to be reliable - it isn’t anymore and can spend 5-10 mins trying to find the right place for continuation of the listen..Version: 3.15

BecomingJust listen! This is the most compelling and human autobiography you’re ever likely to read/ hear. It is frank and honest and fantastically interesting. It feels as if a good friend is confiding her truth. I found myself responding out loud , affirming , agreeing, feeling it as if she were in the room telling me personally about her life experiences. The story of how an “ordinary “ life can journey in impossibly extraordinary directions is hope giving , and also challenging. In terms of Michelle Obama’s learning curve, to be true to herself, to the integrity that she was brought up to have rooted deep within her, and allow and celebrate her own voice and strength as a black woman this has challenged me right where and when I need it, to begin to first accept, and hopefully ultimately celebrate too my own voice as a strong woman..I hope and imagine that it will do the same for yes girls and women, but people the world over. This autobiography is EMPOWERING and hopeful..Version: 3.42

Amanda Lee - HappinessHQI don’t know how I’d love without it! I use audible every single day both for my personal and professional learning. I recommend it as almost an essential resource to every client I work with. It enables them to absorb huge amounts of knowledge and concepts on the go during their busy days. This would obviously not be anywhere near possible if relying on reading. The only time I’ve needed to return a book the refund was prompt and without hassle. The only thing I would say is that the set up / initial using of audible has caused issues for nearly every person I’ve recommended it to. Also some confusion arises in terms of Australian audible versus US. Otherwise brilliant!.Version: 2.28.1

Another levelTo ‘listen’ to a book is a skill in itself. It’s too easy to tune out and let your thoughts drift away. Listening, like reading, takes time to master. But when you do, you learn a whole new medium which is rich and limitless. That said, the Audible experience depends on the chemistry between writer and author. Their skill and gravitas must be equal and compatible. For a narrator to bring the book to life is a true artform. They must to be multi talented if they are to embody each character, make them unique and bring them to life within the tone and world of the novel. When it works, it creates another level of escapism, to the point where one can argue that the Audible experience is even better than reading the book, which is something I thought I’d never say..Version: 3.1.1

Rising out of hatredAn amazing account of personal transformation. I too grew up with a racist father, surrounded by all of the rhetoric in this community. Awful. I love the courage it took for Roland-Derek to challenge his indoctrination and to find the strength to cut ties with beloved community, even family. That is the hardest part. For real. He said there is guilt in the interviews I’ve seen of his regarding what he helped create. Well, that was happening anyway. The good he has created through his total honesty, vulnerability and accountability - and willingness to speak publicly about it - stands taller and provides more light than any darkness the white nationalist... movement could ever create. He is a light bearer, and it is especially powerful and illuminating BECAUSE of his history. Roland-Derek provides an example of someone to challenge and think for himself within a fear-based, constraining movement. My hat is forever off to this gentleman, a man of TRUE wisdom and bravery while surviving the very human heartbreak of leaving a beloved community that no longer serves. He and Alison are putting their lives on the line by speaking out. I am grateful to Eli for penning this book, and all the others willing to allow their names into this story. Your courage and truth DEEPLY inspires me..Version: 3.35.2

This going to hurtThis book is both hilarious and heart wrenching. Provided you can handle the stranger than fiction but obviously true anecdotes, Albeit some of which are pretty near the bone and require a strong stomach to digest, then you are rewarded by a fascinating and eye opening insight into the trials of a junior doctors progress through the NHS system together with a profound and serious appreciation of the extraordinary expectations the said NHS demands of its staff. I have always had a genuine admiration for the NHS and have, on numerous occasions of being on the receiving end of hospitalisation treatment, subsequently put my appreciation into the written word to be passed on to those involved. I hope sincerely that a book of this type will contribute to the governments realisation of what is required to save what was the envy of the worlds Public Health Service..Version: 2.37

Read this!It is an amazing app, it helps me getting things done quicker e.g. if there is some homework I need to do about a book I can listen to it on audible while cleaning or working out. Something I found annoying about this app (although it has only happened once over the five years of me using it) is that there are some book series they don’t finish. They do the first few books but then the last one isn’t on here. Overall this app is amazing and I suggest buying it. It is a great way to save time. Getting this app also allows you to avoid the cliffhangers when you finish reading a chapter and have to go to bed. You can listen to the story while going to sleep and enjoy it all. I hope you discover some amazing books on this app..Version: 3.0.1

Better and better- not perfectThis app gets better and better but it isn't perfect. The app has great features and a few clunky ones. More good ones than it used to have. They are being improved over time. All in all, I'm happy with my experience. I can return books I didn't like if they are returned within 6 months. I don't read (listen to) them that quickly. I buy faster than I listen to them. Some times I finish them and the "finished" indication doesn't stay associated with the book through app revisions. Not Cool! The stories included in the titles are often well done but some presentations need serious rework - not many - but the choice for presenter could sometimes be improved. I've listened to a couple dozen different presenters by now ( a couple hundred books ). If those that were "flat" could be trained or replaced with more skilled people a lot of the stories would be better but, sometimes the story is the problem and that is a shame. It becomes easier to tell the difference between problems in story and presentation as you hear more of each. The short samples offered before you buy are most helpful ( at least to me ) only after my ear has become trained by listening to a goodly number of books by many presenters..Version: 2.27

A new bug (May 2021)A new bug has appeared. The player shuts off when the iPhone screen goes dark in sleep mode. This can be remedied by “throwing away” the app ie in latest iPhones go to the general desktop view of all apps and swipe up from bottom of screen to show rectangles of open apps. Now swipe the Audible app up and away. When you reopen it the player will work as expected. I think (but am not certain) that the bug appears after Audible has been in CarPlay mode. Previous review (May 2020) The latest update (3.24 May 2020) finally gives us the chance to organise books into collections. As I have hundreds of Audiobooks that were previously in one endless list, this is a big improvement. It’s not perfect - eg you can only add to a collection by searching for titles - not by eg going to a genre folder and selecting items or by selecting items in the All Titles list and moving them individually. I hope this gets added. Next - please put back both seconds skip AND chapter skip onto the listening page. This was a very annoying change that wastes a lot of time. If the old way of tapping the picture was not intuitive enough, why not simply add FOUR buttons instead of two? But thanks for the upgrade. I haven’t seen yet if “collections” carry over to PC or other devices. After spending a long time making collections, I really hope they do!.Version: 3.48

Beautiful story full of hopeThis book was very helpful for me in understanding both Parkinson’s Disease, which my mother has just been diagnosed with and also a trip down memory lane of all the shows, movies, etc, that Michael J Fox was in. I grew up watching Fox and still enjoy his appearances whenever I find them. Thanks Michael, for sharing a bit of your life with us..Version: 3.1.1

Wow well done!I found the book interesting be able to give an account of processed used in a conflict like Iraq then the principles and the various applications to a variety of business application it was thought provoking and in all chapters I could relate to some of these scenarios in my work place. The other thing I got out of the book was reinforcing some of my own actions, views and plans are correct. Awesome book well written and presented. This was my first audiobook and wasn’t sure if I liked the concept but how it was read and presented was fantastic so thank you well done.Version: 3.3.1

Updates added and removed featuresI really like the layout from recent updates and the ability to buy from my wishlist -in fact I like viewing my wishlist on the app better than on the website now. However, I don’t understand why the option to jump back or ahead 30 sec has disappeared from the main screen when playing a book and are only available in the driving and button free options. I use it frequently when trying to quickly find the last spot I remember when falling asleep and quickly tapping the book cover to bring that option up is faster than pulling up either of those options where it still exists. I’d also like to amplify the request to be able to sort by book category and author. I know I can search by author, but a quick sorting by author would also be nice. I can also type book categories in the search engine and it kind works, but it doesn’t work well. As an example, searching for biography will pull up Harry Potter and A Darker Shade of Magic (also fantasy) so it doesn’t work really well..Version: 3.21

Matida by Roald Dahl read by Kate WinsletHaving heard the B F G by Roald Dahl on the radio when our children were small I tapped on the Sample of Matilda. Kate Winslet trapped me with her dialect for Matilda. Completely Irresistable and into my basket it went. It has everything story, reading and more. I like how you pause the reading or select a chapter. Audible is ideal for “Reading in Bed”.Version: 3.47

Upheaval by Jared DiamondRigorous disciplined analysis of successful and disastrous coping strategies by nations jostling for space. A must for national leaders; alas, history shows us that the ones who should take note; don’t. I look at my own country struggling with the brexit situation. The obvious solution for a nation that sees itself as democratic would be a balanced, unbiased open appraisal of the pros and cons. Unfortunately, self interest and ego fuelled blindness are resulting in a refusal to debate as so. So yes, hopefully Jared’s book will get read by people who need to read it. May I suggest your next book Jared be on the effects of education on nations; that is when a nation focusses on educating its people and when it actively restricts education. Much of the problems I am seeing now are due to dropping interest in knowledge and reliance on beliefs. Bravo! This book got me thinking.. a great read and important one..Version: 3.7

LoveTbh, I keep "forgetting" to cancel it because I love it so much but basically my only criticism is when a book has diagrams or images they should show up on your screen/lock screen etc so you can see them if you wish because I've been listening to all these great books by dr joe dispenza and they are diagram heavy and every time he refers to a diagram I'm like aghhhh why I can't I see this right now? Anyway, yes to audible, thanks, will probs "forget" to cancel again this month...Version: 3.10.2

Love Audible but there are some snags with the appI have hundreds of Audible books and I am a huge fan. This is my review of the app, however, and it needs some work. There are real issues with the sync feature. It doesn’t sync well with my kindle books; it certainly isn’t seamless and usually ends up just not doing it at all. Not sure the “whisper technology” even truly exists. I often buy the same book in multiple formats and shift between audio and print depending on where I am. The app doesn’t download my new books once purchased at times, but not always. It also doesn’t, and has never removed Kindle Unlimited titles I’ve borrowed and returned. They remain indefinitely, but give an error message if opened. I frequently have to completely delete the app and reinstall it. When I do that, all becomes well in my world and everything is in its place. But I don’t have any other apps that require that. I expect after years of using this app, and generations of updates, that these things would be fixed..Version: 3.29.1

On a Beautiful DayI really enjoyed this book. As well as being a Mancunian and recognising places and the people, who I can testify, in all modesty, are just wonderfully warm, the story line kept my interest right up to the end. I really don’t like books, films, wherehalfway through I can guess the ending/outcome. With ‘On a Beautiful Day’ right up to the end I was never sure how each characters story was going to end, I really liked that. But more importantly these ladies stories were so refreshing, I could feel myself amongst them in all ways. I hope Ms Diamond has written more of the same. Lynne.Version: 3.1

NOT for the faint heartedThis book makes you look a lot closer at now and the future. Homo Deus also tests some religious and spiritual beliefs. Listening or reading this book requires an open mind and logical thinking. However after hearing this book I’m not sure if I’m capable😊. There is a lot of great information to be learned in this book. Enjoy your journey 🤔.Version: 2.37

RubbishKeeps freezing & is very slow to navigate iPhone 6+.Version: 3.30

What HappenedSuch a courageous book! If you have any questions about how the most popular candidate could come 2nd to the candidate who used ‘ratings’ tactics to manipulate his way into a role far beyond his ability or competency, then listen to this but be prepared for facts going hand in hand with a barrage of questions! Not being an American, the only commonality I can glean is from being a woman, and I believe that this was probably the biggest threat the author faced in her attempt to become president! Thanks for you courage, on going drive & determination!.Version: 2.29

ConvienentI love reading but mum with 4 children, this allows me to listen to books when i am cleaning or taking care of the children. I would of never of read as many as I have if if it weren't for audible books. My favourite are spiritual or self development books & I have now created a Inspirational; self development book club by Hear my voice, which allows me to share what I am learning with others that are interested in the same books. Which I am also taking online so I am connecting with people all around the world that listen or read these books. I have made so many friendships through the book club. Audible book have made my life so much easier & for just £7:99 a month so I can also get a book that would normally cost £20/£30 for just £7:99. One very happy mummy :).Version: 3.11.2

Valuable lessons not found in school!My mother gave me this book when I was a teenager over 60 years ago and it was very effective in overcoming my extreme shyness. Listening to it now as I enter my 80’s has been a valuable refresher to my daily responses in interacting with my peers and new friends. Most people I know would find a wealth of skills here to improve their lives and those they interact with. It’s a no brainer 😳👍.Version: 2.29

Highly recommendA friend sent me a link to my first free audiobook a few months ago and I’ve been listening to several books each month since. Because of the nature of my job I can listen to audiobooks all day while I work, it’s fantastic. I like the feature that it syncs between devices and takes me to the place where I last read. I gave this app 4 stars because I think there is room for improvement. I listen to several books which I refer back to at a later stage, but finding the part I’m looking for, takes ages. It would be very helpful to display the title of each chapter and not just the number..Version: 3.9.1

DavidLove the app. , their deals are spectacular, the books are at a proper price, and I think the only thing I really had trouble with was transferring the books to my computer. But; I think they're a little laxed on their security protocols. I had been paying with my credit card. This is also the only thing I was using was said certain credit card. And it just so happens this is the only credit card that somebody was trying to steal. They need to think about accepting PayPal. Or beefing up their security. The main thing they need to do I think it’ll make it so that you can put books in the order that you would actually read what you collect. so many of the title’s i like so many numbers to target which goes in which order. my favorites The iron Druid it self is a wonderful and creative. It makes you think about all of the myths you've heard stories. Not many folks make me smile or laugh. But this is one of the few. Almost, but not quite; a rival to Jim butcher's Dresden files. He brings his characters to life, truly. His explanation of magic is very thought out in that direction best series going..Version: 3.30

Mobile Version FantasticI really like like the fact that I can download Audible books using my iPhone. It used to be you had to download a book to your desktop or laptop, load it into iTunes and then sync my iPod with my MacBook. I was admitted to the hospital from my doctor's office through emergency. I couldn't go home and pick up my MacBook and iPod. I was so surprised and very happy to find the Audible mobile app in the Apple App Store. I was able to download books to listen to. It took my mind off being stuck in the hospital and after years of living on the road for work I’ve come to find listening to an audiobook to block out annoying sounds. I want to add another great feature I’ve found. This mobile app not only knows which books I already have in my library it also knows which book is next in the series for books that are in a series. Update: At some point the Apple Watch app was dropped so I can no longer control the volume and skip forward and backward on my watch while the audio book is playing on my MacBook, iPad or iPhone. I’d really like to see thes feature added back..Version: 2.29

Game ChangingI think this Brene Brown Book is so relevant. I have a 4yr old and I’m excited by the possibility of raising my own game so that I may “hold the boundaries” for my child as a commitment to what I signed up for. It’s a privilege really. Not always easy but worth it! Thank you for describing compassion in a way that I have some work to do on :) Your definition of “play” was massive as I generally don’t feel v playful yet there are things where I lose time and am not so “purposeful”! Again, thanks for being the kind of human who not only researches but uses the learnings in real time w her family!! Keep bringing the goods as we are listening (even all the way in Australia!)!.Version: 3.11.2

App needs workI LOVE audible, but their app developers are too hit and miss. Every time everything works well, they do something to add a bug or make a detrimental change. This is a pattern that has persisted over years. Currently, even if you turn off or change the sleep timer, it still turns off at the original time you’d selected. This is frustrating and made further so by the fact that the app has had multiple updates since this bug was introduced (including at least one that claimed to fix it) and yet it remains. I’m sorry to be so critical, but I think they need a new development team. Whenever I get a version that works, I’m super reluctant to update, feeling as if it is likely to go terribly wrong. This lack of confidence in an app that accompanies such an otherwise brilliant service is such a shame..Version: 3.10.2

EnlightenedI found myself through many parts of this book, writing down quotes that really stood out to me. I don’t think I’ve read a book this long in years, but somehow bother the writer and reader make the story flow so easily, that even as I was coming to the end, felt as though I was only halfway through. At many points I felt enlightened by the range of perspectives from both Lori and her patients. All in all, I would recommend this book to even therapy skeptics, because it made me think, “Hey, everyone could benefit for some therapy.” Such a great book. Can’t believe how much I learnt through the anecdotes told throughout. I truly do feel enlightened after reading this these past couple of weeks..Version: 3.24.1

SpeechlessI really am speechless, first thing I’d like to say is what an amazing difference it is when the author tells it in his own words. To keep this short and sweet. What amazing stories this man has I could listen to him forever. But one thing I didn’t expect to take from an autobiography is life lesson, he has and will change my life forever. I feel no matter what I say nothing will sound good enough for what I feel inside. I would love to talk to the man himself and thank him directly. Matthew McConaughey your my green-light.Version: 3.40

I know what your doing The series by Zane MichaelsonWow what can I say, this was my first Audio book to listen to. I wasn’t sure if it would do the book justice, but it totally did. Jack Nobles voice had me mesmerized, I felt like I was a part of the story. This series is one of my favorite ever, it totally shattered and devastated me in parts, I cried and felt angry and anxious in other parts but overall I couldn’t switch it off. Jenna is one of the most forgiving and strongest Women I know, the lengths she went too, to fight for her Marriage and Family, was admirable. The love that both Zane and Jenna have for each other has survived a very devastating time in there lives, I wish them love and happiness always, because they both deserve there HEA..Version: 3.1.1

Love this appI love Audible! Audible has one of the largest selection of books that I have ever had on a audiobook app. There is something for everyone. I have been reading Harry Potter and I am on Prisoner of Azkaban. For the past 2 books that I have read, I have gotten to sleep a lot faster. Before Audible, I would stay up all night because I was bored, but now I go to bed at 9:30 at the latest! Also, the people reading the books really match the vibe of the book. Great examples include the Dork Diaries series and Harry Potter series. Both of those readers read the stories in voices that match the book. Next, like I said, on Audible there is something for everyone. I have really enjoyed reading a book called the Golden Orchard and before, I would have never imagined myself reading a book like this. After your first book, I think that Audible takes you interest and suggests you books that are like the books you like or something totally different all together. Overall Audible is a total must have if you struggle with getting to sleep. 😃.Version: 3.37

Great app, few suggestions for improvementsI absolutely LOVE this app, I can’t get enough of it and it has made me re-discover books again through listening! The only reason I have given it 4 stars and not 5 is because it would be really helpful if a few improvements could be made as follows: - the ability to sort books by those which you’ve finished so that you can easily see the ones you haven’t yet listened to, or even be able to put books into folders (like with the Kindle); - the ability to see when you started/finished a book as it would be interesting to see those books you finish in a few days compared to others in a few weeks (could connect to the stats/badges); - the ability to be able to purchase audible books from within the app - this would be a HUGE benefit as it is quite irritating to have to keep going to the web page to look at your account and use your credits; - the ability to be able to make notes about the audiobooks within the app, so that you can recall the ones you liked and why and the narrators you liked. Just a few suggestions that maybe the developers would like to consider. It is a fantastic app though and I would strongly encourage anyone wanting to find their love of books again to give Audible a go!.Version: 3.14

Great iPhone app, but Watch app is uselessI’ve been using Audible for years on my iPhone, and was looking forward to using the app on my new, series 5 Apple Watch. What a disaster! When syncing a book to the Watch, the process is in two stages. First, your content is ‘prepared’ then it syncs. The prepare stage seems to complete, but then the sync just hangs and eventually displays a message saying that contact with the Watch has been lost (this is not true, as the link between the phone and watch is still live). I tried several times, always making sure the watch was on the charger as recommended in the guidelines. Looking at a few forums, it appears that this is a common problem that the developers are just ignoring. Really quite disgraceful and unprofessional. It spoils what is, otherwise, quite a good app..Version: 3.10.2

Hate new App front pageAudible app is definately in my top 5 apps I go for on a daily basis on my iPhone and iPad. First thing when I get in the car I select my latest book to listen to. When I'm at my desk I set my phone on it's dock and continue 'reading' while I work and the same goes when I'm cooking. I use this more than iTunes nowadays. It isn't perfect - I don't download to my phone anymore because usually I get an error message after it's downloaded the first 5-10% of a book, and then just stops - nothing will get a download past the first 10% no matter how I tweak the settings. So now I just download to my Mac and drop it into iTunes, to load up when I sync next. It's a bit of a nuisance but.... This never used to happen, just since 2 or 3 revisions ago. I can live with the inconvenience though. What I couldn't live without now is the App itself - it's so convenient to listen to a book rather than have to give a book your whole attention as with a paper book or eBook - although I read plenty of them too. My only real hate is the ‘dashboard’/home page the app starts on now. I’m not interested in whatever it has to say...all I want is my Library when I open the app..Version: 3.38.1

Love love loveI have read and reread “Yes Please” many times, but l loved listening to this audiobook so, so much. I highly recommend it to anyone, at literally any stage in their life (but, maybe 17+). As a twenty-something, this book is was an absolute gift. Hearing Amy’s story with such honesty, her humility and grace, positivity and compassion is something that cannot be compared and the lessons in these chapters are important and, for a young person, quite profound. I know that it’s the kind of book I can come back to in my 30s and 40s and still take away something important. And yes, I did listen to it in my car. But also on my way to work, on my way home from work, and whenever I needed to step away discreetly for a while. And honestly, there was no better way to spend my time than by getting a pep talk or dose of reality from Amy Poehler, in amy Poehler’s voice. I loved it. Thank you, Amy..Version: 2.29

Why I like Audible booksI knit and sew, wash up and iron whilst listening, a pleasant way of multitasking. Hardly ever actually WATCH the TV, most of it is rubbish anyway. The choice of titles is huge and I am having lots of fun finding new things to learn as well as just being entertained. Unlike tv or films my mind gives me the pictures and I am not bombarded by loud noise, 'flashing images', violence, unnecessary interminable bonking, tongue tonsillectomies and most actors looking so like each other that I forget who is who. I have only come across one narrator's voice that I did not like, most are excellent and I think I prefer male voices, probably because they are lower pitched. I get through at least 3 books a month and often more. Some books are well over 20 hours long so I can have 2 or 3 on the go, listening to whichever one I am in the mood for. You can go back to previous chapters if you like at any time. I have some books I have listened to 2 or 3 times. Cost wise, £7-8 a month will give you 1 book credit per month but then you can buy 3 further book credits for £18 whenever you want. Actual full price of each book can be up to about £30. If you are not sure about a book there is usually a sample to listen to before purchasing. Would I recommend audible? You bet!.Version: 2.27

Can’t access my libraryI would love to be able to use the app but I cannot access my library. I have paid my sub and am still unable to use the app. Very frustrating as I know plenty who are using. Any help to fix would be appreciated.Version: 3.38.1

More creditsI have been using audible for nearly a year now and I can say it has without a doubt opened my mind up to another universe that I hadn’t known about til now, I highly recommend it to anyone who loves books but either doesn’t have the time to physically read them or even has issues concentrating on reading print like myself. This app has changed my life I recommend it to all of my friends regularly and with the subscription you get a new book each month. One suggestion I would have for the makers is possibly adding an option to buy credits in bulk for cheaper prices, sometimes I want to read a new series of books but find myself not wanting to waste credits/$15 on books between 5-10 hours as I can finish that in a day or so, if I had the option to buy more in one go I wouldn’t find myself skipping series that have shorter books at the beginning. Aside from that it’s basically flawless in my eyes, keep up the good work guys!.Version: 3.5

Barefoot investorI have bought the book rarely have enough time to sit and read as I have a full-time job, spent two hours a day driving to and from my full-time job my days off are spent keeping house paying bills going shopping etc. The audio version of this book gave me the opportunity to read this book with my ears on the two hours I have spent every day driving to and from work. As I have a book I can refer to the book I know what it’s all about because I’ve listened. There fore the Barefoot is definitely worth the money as it gives you great ideas and I’ve already saved the money I invested into both the audiotapes and book just by switching banks..Version: 3.4

A must for avid readers!I have been a member of Audible for more than 5 years now. I love the range of books & being able to listen on practically every device! I listen to books at work, on my daily walk & in the car. Whispersync also allows me to switch between the e-book & audiobook - without losing my place in the book. Audible has a fantastic range available and all of the books are reasonably priced. There are always loads of discounts - especially if you borrow or buy the Kindle version as well. Highly recommended!.Version: 3.16

If it goes wrong, you’re alone.I spent my membership credits on some nice books. They never turned up in my library. I contacted them through phone. The guy was insufferably rude. I am still owed my books and none of the help or service pages they offer have any solutions. I’m left in the lurch and am owed my goods. For what it’s worth, Audible has stolen from me..Version: 3.8

Can’t wait to get my hands on her next!This was one of those books that you not only savor, but you swap between physical and audio because you can’t get enough. The setting was perfect, the characters were hilarious, and the depth was just right. You follow Marin as she takes on a role she never thought she would be in.. PR and media manager for a rock band. But she not only crushes the position, she gains a crush on a band member. You follow along with the band and crew as they make their way all over the country on tour. You see them banter, you see them prank and you see them fall in love.. or lust. I usually have something to knit pick about whether it’s lack of charter build or creating an atmosphere you feel a part of, but Lisa did nothing for me to knit pick. This world was so well thought out, I can’t wait to dive into every single book I have of hers and also... I really need a prequel to see how Craig and Phoebe started. The only reason I gave this book a 4 rather then a solid 5 was I had a bit of a rough time with the big problem and how quickly it seemed to be resolved, I wish it would have been a little longer and we got to see more effort and what happened to.. patch things up on all accounts. I’m a girl who doesn’t trust easily and loses trust quickly so I have a hard with any story that someone’s forgiven too quickly..Version: 3.23

Love audible but. No in app purchase! No category/genre filter.I want a one-stop shop app but... 1. hate that I can listen to a sample but can’t download from the app. My kindle lets me buy a book in the app - just want the same from audible. Including displaying the price i will pay in my country- not $US as currently occurs. 2. Sometimes I want to listen to specific genre in my purchased library like crime or sci-fi. I can’t filter/display by category/genre, only by recent/author/title. Please add this function to improve usability. 3. Hate that I can’t get entire series due to publishing rights, especially when it is the earlier eg 1st or 2nd in the series! 4. Once in a book it is great! Love bookmarking & sleep timer. Audio is excellent too..Version: 3.1.1

Worth a listen butA great idea & I think an approach worth implementing. The book itself was repetitive, slightly condescending with little regard for the neuroscience of behavior change. I wasn’t particularly engaged or motivated by the text/reader. I would have liked more details on the actual implementation of time blocking & scheduling, but maybe I just need to get started and those will sort themselves..Version: 3.2.1

I Love Audible...But...I’ve had Audible for nearly 5 years. I started as a way to help me get back to reading since physically reading was somewhat limited by reality. But now when I walk my dogs, run errands, go to the work related matters, drive for a long road trip, ride my bicycle, or even work in the kitchen, I always make sure to have books to listen to. My library has at least 300 by now, and I love seeing it grow. I also love the whisper sync for Kindle which lets me read or listen. I also love the integration with my Alexa devices. I can go from room to room without wasting my phone battery, and have her keep reading to me. Here are my only two recommendations:1- this is the most important. Please for the love of all that is holy let us organize our books by subject matter/ category or whatever we call it like we can in Kindle! I need to do this on my PHONE as I cannot scroll through the ALL my books to find old books I’ve forgotten are even there. I need to put them by category. Please please please do this most basic thing for your subscribers. 2- please have more whisper sync and more affordable ways to purchase kindle after purchasing the audible. Thank you..Version: 3.11.1

Useful app with issuesThere is one major irritation. The app appears to take an age to start, and when it does it is not a single click to continue listening. Rather you need to select the book and wait while it prepares then find a small play icon. There is considerable lag between ‘click’ and the book playing. So on more than one occasion I have clicked the play button a second time only to have the book play and then immediately pause. Pros: it works and plays the audio books. Provides a ton of statistics about your reading/listening habits. Cons: interface with iTunes is buggy and does not copy titles correctly. What the app needs. It would be useful to have an audio interface to increase loudness or compress the audio because some books are perfect in the living room but the audio is too low for driving. The update has broken the app. Changed it from five star to 1 star. It is just broken. 😤 Update was an improvement, but had to download some books again so they would play. The app now seems to refresh the screen rather than remembering where I last left. A little irritating..Version: 2.27
