    (49)

    Actor and wine expert Julian Curry has devised a unique audiobook guide to wine. The whole subject is introduced and explained – how wine is made, the different grapes, the different blends, vintages, wine-growing areas and types. In an entertaining and informal style, he also teaches how to taste wine, and how to choose and store it.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Without any doubt for us -wine lovers, any guide to learn more about wine is always to be read or listened to; however this book has a tremendous amount of info that does not give you time to digest, rather keeps pounding and pounding. It got to a point which I decided to stop listening to it.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Very interesting information about grapes variety, regions, wine reports and so on.


    Do you think A Guide to Wine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    More than a follow-up book, it needs to be divided into 3 or 4 volumes in order to appreciate it


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I am not an expert on the matter, is is DEFINITELY not for begginers. Needs more basic information to guide the listener step by step.

    The great power of transformation in nature - in Wicca what is called "The Goddess" - can help you make transitions in your own life, connect more deeply with your own inner power, and bring healing to yourself, your community, and the world around us. In The Beginner's Guide to Wicca, Starhawk invites you to look at life from the perspective of this earth-based tradition that draws from wisdom and nature.

    Even before the Beatles hit the big time, a myth was created. This version of the Beatles legend smoothed the rough edges and filled in the fault lines, and for more than forty years this manicured version of the Beatles story has sustained as truth, until now.

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

    Very amusing and even though you might be a Beatle fan, it sheds some light on those inner details during the Beatles' life which rounds up your perspective, besides, the narrator voice is easy to listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Beatles?

    Their first visit to America with Ed Sullivan


    Which character – as performed by Alfred Molina – was your favorite?

    Brian Epstein


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

    Their visit to The Phillipines and when Yoko got her nose stuck to the point of even deciding to discard -in front of George Martin, Beatles'songs.


    Any additional comments?

    Great one audiobook.
