  • War and Peace

    Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's genius is clearly seen in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle, all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

    I've tried to link this reading to the various translations available on Amazon with no luck. Any advise would be appreciated - I would like to read and listen at the same time.

  • Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 31 mins)

    With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

    A funny, insightful and entertaining book that I highly recommend. Unlike some critics, I thought the reader was just fine.

  • Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 40 mins)
    • By A. J. Hartley, David Hewson
    • Narrated By Richard Armitage

    Story
    (1229)

    It is a tale of ghosts, of madness, of revenge - of old alliances giving way to new intrigues. Denmark is changing, shaking off its medieval past. War with Norway is on the horizon. And Hamlet - son of the old king, nephew of the new - becomes increasingly entangled in a web of deception - and murder. Beautifully performed by actor Richard Armitage ("Thorin Oakenshield" in the Hobbit films), Hamlet, Prince of Denmark takes Shakespeare’s original into unexpected realms, reinventing a story we thought we knew.

    Robert says: "Fantastic whether you like Shakespeare or not!"
    "This is a Fantastic Audiobook"

    I am in the middle of this book, and it is absolutely entrancing and addictive. The prose and the reading are superb. I would rank this among the finest audiobooks I have listened to over the years, and recommend it without reservation.

    On a quiet fall evening in the small, peaceful town of Mill Valley, California, Dr. Miles Bennell discovers an insidious, horrifying plot. Silently, subtly, almost imperceptibly, alien life-forms are taking over the bodies and minds of his neighbors, his friends, his family, the woman he loves, and the world as he knows it.

    Where does The Invasion of the Body Snatchers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    "Do not start this audiobook unless you have 6hrs free to sit and listen!" Excellent novel, superb reading by Mr. Tabori. Really cannot praise this audiobook highly enough.
