    Story
    (357)

    Charlemagne was easily one of the most fascinating figures in Western civilization, as well as the most heroic and romantic. The 47 years of his reign marked some of the most significant and far reaching events of the Middle Ages. Undoubtedly, it was his enlightened vision for Europe that resulted in the Carolingian Renaissance, a period of cultural flowering that never really ceased to develop, and which led in a straight line directly to that period of astonishing achievement we now call the High Gothic.

    Frank says: "A wonderful biography"
    "Takes Some Effort, But Well Worth It."
    Overall

    The effort in this terrific book is in becoming familiar with Germanic names. Events I suffered through in college over 40 years ago came alive and took on the meaning for me my teachers could only dream about. In some ways the book is a study in true leadership as well as the revelation of an extraordinary person in an extraordinary time. The details in this biography are welcome enhancements to the story, rather than mere historical events. The writer bridges the gap of more than 1300 years so well that the book actually seems modern. I look forward to a second listen.

    Story

    David Sedaris' collection of essays - including live recordings! - tells a most unconventional life story. With every clever turn of a phrase, Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other to every unforgettable encounter. You can also listen to Sedaris in an interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air.

    My personal standard for a good movie is, Would I see it again? Applying a like standard to this audible, Would I listen again? Yes. and I will.
