    Little is known about the Ancient Greek oral poet Homer, the supposed 8th century BC author of the world-read Iliad and his later masterpiece, The Odyssey. These classic epics provided the basis for Greek education and culture throughout the classical age and formed the backbone of humane education through the birth of the Roman Empire and the spread of Christianity.

    "pretty boring"
    Overall

    I couldn't stay focused on the story. I never made it past the Iliad. I have heard the Odyssey is better. Maybe I'll get a chance to find out one day.

    Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure.

    "Great book well read"
    Overall

    Wow. This may be my favorite audiobook ever. The narrator was excellent and the story captivating. Few books make me look forward to a day in the car, and this was one of them. It starts a little slow, but bear with it.

  • The First Americans: Prehistory - 1600, A History of US, Book 1

    Story
    (68)

    Thousands of years, way before Christopher Columbus set sail, wandering tribes of hunters made their way from Asia across the Bering land bridge to North America. They didn't know it, but they had discovered a New World. The First Americans is a fascinating re-creation of pre-Columbian Native American life, and it's an adventure of a lifetime!

    Alice says: "Target Audience"
    "for children"
    Overall

    I was profoundly disappointed that this book was aimed at children. I was hoping to get a good review of the early history of the North American continent.Maybe I shold have read the summary more closely.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.
