  • Godless: The Church of Liberalism

    Godless is the most explosive book yet from #1 New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter. In this completely original and thoroughly controversial work, Coulter writes, "Liberals love to boast that they are not 'religious', which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion.

    Overall

    As a Canadian, it took me a little bit of time to become fully acquainted with all of the terms that the author uses for each political party, and each political point of view. Fortunately, she repeats herself so often, that it sank in within the first hour.

    She is rabidly anti-Liberal - which is a fine opinion, and one she is entitled to. I tend to see the idiocy in most of the policies of both major parties, and wonder why the rest of the population doesn't rise up and install new leadership. Oh well, it's tough to change things sometimes.

    Either way, she points to some of the more obvious faults of the Liberal world view, and of course says nothing to besmirch the Republicans.

    I probably could have gotten through her rabid diatribe, except that she repeats herself far too much. Twice, three times, I probably could have handled... I draw the line at six... on every single topic.

    This is the first audiobook I've deleted without listening to the entire thing.

  • The Selfish Gene

    Richard Dawkins' brilliant reformulation of the theory of natural selection has the rare distinction of having provoked as much excitement and interest outside the scientific community as within it. His theories have helped change the whole nature of the study of social biology, and have forced thousands to rethink their beliefs about life.

    If you could sum up The Selfish Gene in three words, what would they be?

    Truly mind altering


    What other book might you compare The Selfish Gene to and why?

    None other. It stands alone in any field related to this subject matter. Other books may well be compared to it, however...


    Have you listened to any of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This narration is excellent. The use of alternating narrators is very helpful when switching from primary text, to footnotes, to updated revision notes, etc.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This was my first Dawkins book. I have since begun to search out and listen to others. His clear thinking and deep insight make any topic, even one with which I am modestly familiar, even more interesting.

  • The 47th Samurai: Swagger

    Bob Lee Swagger and Philip Yano are bound together by a single moment when their fathers met in the bloody and chaotic battle for the island. Only Earl Swagger survived. More than 60 years later, Yano comes to America to honor the legacy of his heroic father by recovering the sword he used in the battle. His search has led him to Crazy Horse, Idaho, where Bob Lee, ex-marine and Vietnam veteran, has settled into a restless retirement and immediately pledges himself to Yano's quest.

    Overall

    An aging Bob takes up the sword, and becomes a master swordsman...? It's actually pretty good, and well narrated... but it was strange listening to a story of BLS in which he isn't peering through a scope for paragraphs at a time. The action was good, and a rather detailed account of swords and their history in Japan is given (I can't vouch for accuracy). Enjoyable.
