    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    What made the experience of listening to Dune the most enjoyable?

    I have long been a fan of Dune the movie by DeLaurentis, Disney, and the SyFy channel versions, but listening to the book comes in at a very close second.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dune?

    The whole thing.


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

    No. The narration is excellant and makes it hard to stop listening.

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book is like taking a trip without the drugs (if you have seen the movie) just close your eyes lean back and listen.

    The text of the books contained in The New American Bible is a completely new translation throughout. From the original and the oldest available texts of the sacred books, it aims to convey as directly as possible the thought and individual style of the inspired writers.

    If you could sum up New American Bible in three words, what would they be?

    Excellant to listen to


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The narrator has a great sounding voice and makes it very interesting to listen to.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing he does an outstanding job.


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

    I couldn't because it's too long, although I think it could have been combined into 7 audio books instead of 14.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio volume could be better if there was a dictionary section included as in the St. Joseph's bible. Some people might not understand some terms used.
