  • Slouching Towards Bethlehem

    Universally acclaimed from the time it was first published in 1968, Slouching Towards Bethlehem has been admired for decades as a stylistic masterpiece. Academy Award-winning actress Diane Keaton (Annie Hall, The Family Stone) performs these classic essays, including the title piece, which will transport the listener back to a unique time and place: the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco during the neighborhood’s heyday as a countercultural center.

    Victoria Wright says: "Didion deserves better."

    I bought this book having grown up in the area. I thought it would be interesting. It is but some on the stories just dragged. I still very much enjoyed the book overall especially Diane Keaton did a wonderful performance

    The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.

    I guess I wasn't paying attention $10 for 45 minutes is not a value.
    not George RR Martins best for sure

    It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades - an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation’s naval arsenal even comes close. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing - and the man who developed it is dead. At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard... burned to a crisp.

  • Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son

    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

    I enjoyed this book so much being a fan of the family thinking I knew them, so much information, love, tragedy. I learned a lot and enjoyed the ride. Looking forward to seeing many of this films I have missed along the way.

    When the young orphan called Pip encounters the escaped convict Magwitch, the child's life is altered forever - in ways he cannot even imagine. In the course of his story, Pip encounters such memorable characters as the eccentric Miss Havisham and her beautiful ward Estella - and a mysterious benefactor. This recording includes both of the endings Dickens wrote for this classic novel.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    very enjoyable read


    What other book might you compare A Game of Thrones to and why?

    reminds me of the lord of the rings


    Have you listened to any of Roy Dotrice’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is the first time I have heard him read, but really enjoyed his acting performances. So knew he would be great!


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

    no really just enjoying the entire series
