An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

  • "This review is for all New York Tim..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I enjoy listening to the news every morning. It usually runs about 55 minutes on average with several US stories, a few World stories, a Journal entry, 2-3 Sports stories and 2 business stories. The best part are the opinions, 3 a day with the best of the Times Paul Krugman, Gail Collins, Maureen Dowd as my favorites.

    The narrator is unknown and he does an adequate job. My only complaint would be it's not as loud as my book narrations.

    If you are interested in concise summations of the news, then this is a must have. It's free with your subscription and not to be missed!

J. Shammas's greatest hits:
  • The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, 1-Month Subscription

    "WSJ stories, but not news"

    Overall

    I was wholly disappointed. The tape could have been recorded a week (or months) earlier given its lack of timely news. The rougly 1-hour audio contains about 8-10 articles (a story or two from each section and an opinion column), each about 6-7 minutes long. Except for the lead story in the Business News and the World News columns, no current events were covered. Comments about the previous day's stock market were under 1 minute. While it might be interesting, DON'T SUBSCRIBE IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE BUSINESS WORLD OR ON WALL STREET.

  • "Good coverage of business and news"

    18 of 18 helpful votes

    I've been been subscribing to Audible's WSJ for over a year now, and have found this to be a great resource to maximize one's time. I found that I was often not able to get through the print edition for lack of time, but with audible's edition of WSJ, I can listen in the car or exercising. Delivery has almost always been there in the morning so good for morning commutes. Friday's edition also includes the extra weekend edition, which includes movie reviews and wine commentary, which are enjoyable features to hear.
