    He is a man capable of abandoning two sailors in an open boat, yet he is an avid and thoughtful reader of the moral philosophers. He is Wolf Larsen, captain of the seal-hunting Ghost and the unforgettable protagonist of one of the world's great sea novels. Tormented by his own convictions, Larsen is an enigma both fascinating and repellent to his reluctant crewman, Humphrey Van Weyden. Throughout their long and perilous voyage together, the captain's ruthless belief in the survival of the fittest is pitted against Van Weyden's "civilization".

    Overall

    Jack London is a terrific writer! I really enjoyed the story of The Sea Wolf, as well as, the character development. The characters became so real I felt as if I was on the schooner, the Ghost, with them. The sences were artfully described---very well done! I also enjoyed the narrator, who changed his voice just enough with the different characters to distinguish them apart. It was very easy to listen to.

    I would rate this book one of my personal top 10 best.

    Charlemagne was easily one of the most fascinating figures in Western civilization, as well as the most heroic and romantic. The 47 years of his reign marked some of the most significant and far reaching events of the Middle Ages. Undoubtedly, it was his enlightened vision for Europe that resulted in the Carolingian Renaissance, a period of cultural flowering that never really ceased to develop, and which led in a straight line directly to that period of astonishing achievement we now call the High Gothic.

    Overall

    I found this book a great read. It was a very informative and entertaining history of the period, the 8th century. The author incorporated all facets of the day....living conditions, social conditions, economics, advancements, etc. It seems the "dark ages" were not as dark as I previously believed. The narrator was awesome. I could have listened to him for another 15 hours!!
