    Story

    As a conservationist tries to settle a family of "rogue" elephants onto his game reserve, he learns valuable lessons about family, loyalty, and friendship.

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. The story really was an inspiring journey touching on many emotional levels. Smiles, tears, anger, disbelief and wonder all rolled into a story that kept me engaged throughout. I even had to find the Thula Thula reserve online because I found myself wanting to plan a visit here at some point.

    Simon Vance really brings this book to life. His style and voice are perfect compliments to the feelings of the story.

    I dont think you can go wrong picking up this offering.

    >When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Rhinos to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version - but I'm going to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lawrence - of course. He is the epitomy, the father, the mentor, he is the voice for conservation and animals of all types. The planet was better with him on it - but it will forever has his spirit with it.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Everything about Simon Vance is superb.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and cry. I've bought Babylon's Ark and will read it next - I wish it was on Audio - but alas it is not. This book is a must read for anyone with a heart. The closing of the book felt like we lost the last great Rhino.... anyway - his books will make you want to get up and do something greater than what you're doing presently.... no matter the capacity.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot urge you to read this enough.... there are not enough words. ;)

    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    Simon Vance is my new crush lol... every character is outstanding....


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story is love, it's humanity, and loyalty... it's kindness and shows the connections we CAN have with life...where ever we find it. Gah, I love this book! It makes me want to go to Thula Thula!

  • "If You Appreciate Quality Lecture"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    Unlike most other offerings from Audible, this is a lecture series, not a performed book. So, if you expect a book, it may not be to your liking. I appreciate education and good lecture and therefore greatly enjoyed this selection. Each lecture is of equal length. (Book chapters vary)

    I am interested in the topic and know a bit about it. So for me, some material was not new. However, the material is presented so clearly that I enjoyed the refresher. I especially like professor McElroy's style. He's a superb, to the point speaker.

    I recommend this title with all possible stars if you enjoy learning, want to to learn about energy use world-wide and can appreciate a lecture-style delivery.

    Something to note: most lecture titles are simply recordings of delivered lectures. This seems to be designed for audio distribution. This is a very important point because you do not get long moments of hearing someone write on a blackboard you cannot see or working through a diagram you do not have. That makes these lectures very easy to follow and free of the usual frustrations that go with 'taped' lectures.

Whether discussing the "oil shocks" of the 1970s, the current reliance on imported oil, or the growing buildup of carbon dioxide in the planet's atmosphere, it is clear that energy represents one of the world's most daunting challenges.

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

Everyone, that is, except a few reckless wildcatters - who risked their careers to prove the world wrong. Things looked grim for American energy in 2006. Oil production was in steep decline and natural gas was hard to find. The Iraq War threatened the nation’s already tenuous relations with the Middle East. China was rapidly industrializing and competing for resources.

It is the major book of the 19th century and one of the most readable and accessible of the great revolutionary works of the scientific imagination. Though, in fact, little read, most people know what it says—at least they think they do. The Origin of Species was the first mature and persuasive work to explain how species change through the process of natural selection. Upon its publication, the book began to transform attitudes about society and religion.

    Few consumers are aware of the economic forces behind the production of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy. Yet omnivore and herbivore alike, the forces of meatonomics affect us in many ways. Most importantly, we've lost the ability to decide for ourselves what - and how much - to eat. Those decisions are made for us by animal food producers who control our buying choices with artificially-low prices, misleading messaging, and heavy control over legislation and regulation.
