    It started in 1845 and lasted six years. Before it was over, more than one million men, women, and children starved to death and another million fled the country. Measured in terms of mortality, the Great Irish Potato Famine was one of the worst disasters in the 19th century-it claimed twice as many lives as the American Civil War. A perfect storm of bacterial infection, political greed, and religious intolerance sparked this catastrophe.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story

    I gave this a try from all of the raving reviews. I guess I have learned my lesson. I thought I was getting a fun sci-fi fantasy something or other. I don't really know what that was.
    I am not a negative person, so I'll just say it wasn't for me.

  • Sterling Biographies: Frederick Douglass

    From slave to freedom fighter: that was the long and hard journey taken by Frederick Douglass. Douglass was America's first great civil rights leader, and he threw off the physical, mental, and legal chains of slavery to become one of Americaï¿¿ï¿¿s greatest champions for human rights. It was said that his life was proof that once black people could read and write about their injustices, they would have the power to end slavery.

    What made the experience of listening to Sterling Biographies the most enjoyable?

    It was very basic. It is a story I want to know more about.


    Any additional comments?

    Very dry listening. If that's possible. I may try another Sterling biography.
