    This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer and his family in old agrarian China. The humble Wang Lung glories in the soil he works, nurturing the land as it nurtures him and his family. Nearby, the nobles of the House of Hwang consider themselves above the land and its workers; but they will soon meet their own downfall. The working people riot, breaking into the homes of the rich and forcing them to flee. When Wang Lung shows mercy to one noble and is rewarded, he begins to rise in the world, even as the House of Hwang falls.

    In San Francisco newlyweds are being stalked and slaughtered. Enter four unforgettable women, all friends: Lindsay, a homicide inspector in the city's police department; Claire, a medical examiner; Jill, an assistant D.A.; and Cindy, a reporter who has just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Overall

    I've read these before in tree-ware and they were even more thrilling to listen to. Was extremely disappointed that the series based on the books was canceled but I'm glad the series survives in the novels.

    And bundling them as they've done here with the first six (2 boxed sets) makes it easier to consider diving into a new series without having to buy 8 audio books just to catch up to the most recent.

    In 81 brief chapters, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, as well as a serene and generous spirit. It teaches us how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao: the basic principle of the universe.

    Amazon Customer says: "Relaxing Listen"
    "Slow"
    Overall

    An important book, but the narrator reads at a snail's pace. I ended up stopping listening to it on my Kindle and switched to my Clip to I could take advantage of it's "Fast" speed option.

  • Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism

    Story

    With irreverent wit, an engagingly personal style, and a battery of real-life examples, Ha-Joon Chang blasts holes in the "World Is Flat" orthodoxy of Thomas Friedman and other neo-liberal economists who argue that only unfettered capitalism and wide-open international trade can lift struggling nations out of poverty.

    Joshua Kim says: "Would Be Better As An Article"

    Overall

    Does a great job of de-bunking the free market myth.

  • War and Peace

    Story
    (642)

    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.

    Overall

    The book, of course, is excellent. And the narrator's voice is perfect. The files, however, contained many flaws - hisses, squeaks, and so forth.
