    "Excellent Book & Narrator"

    Overall

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of On Writing to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version of this book, but King's narration really makes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Writing?

    One of my favorite parts was in the beginning when King stated that his book would be short because most books about writing are long and mostly full of BS.


    What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His narration helps personalize the experience, especially when he's talking about his own life. And his great sense of humor comes through beautifully.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hearing about his near-death experience, and how he came back from it, was fascinating and inspiring.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book for aspiring writers as well as Stephen King fans. It's a wonderful book.

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    I gave a star for each part of the file that wasn't a review of material from the book. So here is how it will go. You'll listen to some material from the book for about 5 minutes then the rest of the time you will be getting asked review questions from things you'll need to read from the book. The description is very misleading. I would have ranked higher if I wanted and expected a person asking me questions about what I read from the book.

    In the summer of 1942, a band of citizen soldiers were brought together by the desire to be better than the other guy. At its peak, Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 through Utah Beach, Market-Garden, the Bulge, and Hitler's Eagle's Nest, WWII historian Stephen Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company.

    This landmark book is for those of us who prefer words to equations; this is the story of the ultimate quest for knowledge, the ongoing search for the secrets at the heart of time and space. Its author, Stephen W. Hawking, is arguably the greatest mind since Einstein. From the vantage point of the wheelchair, where he has spent the last 20 years trapped by Lou Gehrig's disease, Professor Hawking has transformed our view of the universe. A Brief History of Time is Hawking's classic introduction to today's most important scientific ideas.

    These days, English professors prefer to teach anything and everything but classic English literature. They indoctrinate their students in Marxism and radical feminism, show them Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, and teach them the "post-colonial literature" of South Asia. When they do teach a genuine work of English or American literature, they use it to propagandize against our "oppressive" Western culture.
