  • Boy Meets Boy

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By David Levithan
    • Narrated By Nicholas Robideau, the Full Cast Family
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    What if you went to a school where it was actually all right to be who you really are? That's the enchanting place David Levithan has created in his highly acclaimed first novel. But even if the gay kids and the straight kids all get along just fine, even if it's all right for the quarterback to be a cross dresser named Infinite Darlene and the cheerleaders to ride Harleys into the pep rally, the road to true love is still a strange and winding path, as Paul discovers when he meets the boy of his dreams.

    Brian says: "Kudos to Full Cast Audio"
    "Tame and wonderful."

    I fantastic book brilliently performed. I enyoyed this so much. Its so often we get books on gay subject matter which are depressing but this is an uplifting story which gives you a feel of Hollywood happiness that doesn't make you feel like you are being programmed into a Christian life style.

  • Intellectuals and Society

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Thomas Sowell
    • Narrated By Tom Weiner

    This is a study of how intellectuals as a class affect modern societies by shaping the climate of opinion in which official policies develop, on issues ranging from economics to law to war and peace. You will hear a withering and clear-eyed critique about (but not for) intellectuals that explores their impact on public opinion, policy, and society at large.

    Chlo-bell says: "An efficient attack on liberal philosophy."
    "Very Annoying"

    There are very few facts here and condradiction after contradiction leaves your mind spinning. The writer uses so many critical points of argument that sometimes only paragraphs later he is doing the exact same thing. Statements like, "Intellectuals never even bother to look into why China and India are successful.." then "Intellectuals make broad statements about catagories of people and what they do."

  • Letting Go of God

    • ORIGINAL (2 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Julia Sweeney
    • Narrated By Julia Sweeney

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Mark says: "A Brilliant Personal Journey of Discovery"
    "Definitely down load this..."

    This has been my favourite audio book. Julia delivers it like a stand up routine, with thoughtful moments that are inspiring. I never knew of her work before I happened upon this, and will now look into everything else she has done. Its really fun, intelligent and humble.

  • The Swimming Pool Library

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By Alan Hollinghurst
    • Narrated By Samuel West

    This novel centres on the friendship of William Beckwith, a young gay aristocrat who leads a life of privilege and promiscuity, and the elderly Lord Nantwich, who is searching for someone to write his biography.

    Aoife says: "Beautifully Written and Read"
    "Interesting but..."

    I kind of enjoyed it, I spent most of the time facinated by the lifestyle of the era (1970's) and the research into the days of the time before. I kept expecting their posh bubble to burst but disappointingly it is not the point of the story, then again any point would have been good. Unless the point is that posh lives are pointless.
