    Would you consider the audio edition of The Call of the Wild to be better than the print version?

    Better! The feelings and emotions of the story teller help get you involved in the story.


    What other book might you compare The Call of the Wild to and why?

    The Grapes of Wrath. I thought Henry Fonda was talking to me and me only.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favorite?

    Buck... How he became leader of the pack and survived was fun to see happen in my mind.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Survivalist in the dog world.


    Any additional comments?

    Makes my three hour road trips go by too fast. I want to drive around the block so I can end the chapter.

  • Of Mice and Men

    Story

    While the powerlessness of the laboring class is a recurring theme in Steinbeck’s work of the late 1930s, he narrowed his focus when composing Of Mice and Men (1937), creating an intimate portrait of two men facing a world marked by petty tyranny, misunderstanding, jealousy, and callousness. But though the scope is narrow, the theme is universal: a friendship and shared dream that make an individual’s existence meaningful.

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

    I got caught up in the friendship of two completely different personalities.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Of Mice and Men?

    The ending! Could I kill someone I loved under the same circumstances.


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

    Only one so far but with this performance, I wouldn't be afraid to listen to more.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes...but it took two trips and sync in my Ford F150 pickup to listen over my sound system. When I travel, my wife and I listen to Audio books. Trip goes by too fast because we want to finish the story.


    Any additional comments?

    When I listen to an Audio book, I want to get the movie to see how they told the story in visual format. Love the Classics!

    George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words! This must-read is also a must-listen!

  • The Old Man and the Sea

    Story

    The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal, a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

    Dave says: "Truly a Classic"
    "Theater of the mind was great"

    Any additional comments?

    Went and got the movie a week later to see how they portrayed their theatre of the mind vs. mine
