    "Papa, please tell us a tale." When Papa's seven little mouse boys ask for a bedtime story, Papa does even better than that, he tells seven stories, one for each boy!

    It has a wonderful collection of short stories for very young children. I am an ESL teacher and my students love it. The stories get progressively more challenging, so it helps to improve the students' listening skill.

    An introduction to the complete program. Includes two-and-a-half hours of spoken-language practice in five 30-minute lessons. Contains lessons 1-5 from the Pimsleur Comprehensive Level I program. Also includes a User's Guide to introduce you to the Pimsleur Method.

    "Not boring and easy to follow"
    Overall

    This is definitely one of my greatest learning experiences with a new language. As each lessons is about 30 minutes in length, it is easy to sit through without too much stress. The pronunciation is easy to follow and the explanation is clear. That is to say, I enjoy learning the new language very much through this program.

    Each successive lessons repeat a lot of what was taught in the previous lessons, so it makes it easier to remember the learned phrases and words. Every lesson starts with a Japanese conversation that probably sounds like gibberish, but by the end of the 30 minutes lesson, I guarantee that if you don't understand the whole conversation, you'll at least understand 80 to 90% of it, which I found very gratifying.

    The only complaint I have is that the accompanied info is just a program user guide, rather than a learning aid, but I guess we really don't need a written learning aid for the program.

    Highly recommended.

  • Political Incorrections: Bill Maher's Best Opening Monologues from "Politically Incorrect"

    For everyone who's had their fill of politicians, TV trials and the daily events seen on the evening news, Simon & Schuster Audio offers some relief with this collection of the funniest opening monologues from Comedy Central's hit show, Politically Incorrect starring Bill Maher.

    Overall

    Maybe I wasn't in the mood to listen to a collection of monologues or something, I found this very boring. Each monologue was very short and there was no continuation. The monologue background naration (before every several monologues) definitely kills the mood. I would just pass on this one if I had known.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Overall

    This is quickly becoming one of my favorite audiobooks. It is very very long. There are a lot of characters to follow on. The story is very intricate and full of twist and turns. The character developments are amazing. It is a good story even if you are not particularly familiar with spy's stories, like I am.

    Moongobble and Edward are off on another Mighty Task, even more dangerous than the first. Urk the toad, Fireball the dragon, and the Rusty Knight are coming along, too, of course. This time their adventures will lead them right into the fearsom Forest of Night.

    The is the second of the series. Try "Dragon of Doom" first if you haven't yet, although it is not necessary to listen to them in order since there is brief introduction about the background and the characters weaves into the story as well. I highly recommend it for young adults.

    When an almost-magician named Moongobble and his talking toad, Urk, move into the abandoned cottage near Edward's home, it seems like a dream come true. After all, Edward has been longing for some excitement.

    Overall

    This story is perfect for young adults or adults who are young at heart. The light hearted story has perfect voice casting. I highly recommend it. This is the first story of the series and I belive there are three. The second is the Weeping Werewolf. The third is not available on audible yet but I'll be the first one to download it when it is available.

    Valley girl meets vampire? Buffy is blissfully unaware that there's trouble brewing, even though 4 teenage girls in L.A. have disappeared in the past 2 months, until she meets a stranger named Merrick. He tells her that she bears the mark of the order, which means she's the only one who can stop the vampires who are terrorizing her city.

    BusyStix says: "good story, bad narration"
    "Sound quality could be better"
    Overall

    The story is exciting, and of course, the story is about a teenage girl fighting vampires. I think the story is very good in portraying Buffy immaturity at the beginning to becoming a thoughful being, and her struggles to make sense of things. There are some pauses here and there but it doesn't diminish the overall naration of the book. However, since it is only available in format 2, the sould quality at times is muddle.

    The tales of the Norse gods, of the giants, demons, trolls and dwarves, still have the power to fascinate more than a thousand years after they were first told. Here are the stories of the one-eyed god Odin, Tyr the god of war, of the cunning Loki, of Thor the mighty thunder god and a host of others.

    "Confusing at a times but exciting stories"
    Overall

    The audiobook is divided into various sections and each section is a different story. The sections can be listened alone but the later sections should be listened in sequence to make the story flow better. The name of all the gods at times were confusing but after a while, the main gods pretty much appear in most sections, such as Odin, Thor, Loki and Baldur. There are giants, magic cloaks, giant wolf and all sort of mytical creatures. The story gets more interesting when it progresses. Overall, it is a very good collection of stories.

    Anne Rice lures us once again into the seductive world of vampires with her short story, The Master of Rampling Gate. In 1888, siblings Richard and Julie are drawn to the beautiful but foreboding 400-year-old family mansion. What was the "unspeakable horror" their father saw in the luxurious home they are so drawn to? Available in audio exclusively from Audible.

    It is my very first audioboook listening and I absolutely love it. The narrator did a wonderful job in making the story exciting and suspenseful. The pronunciation is very clear. The story is a little predictable but still it is wonderful.
