  • ENIAC: The Triumphs and Tragedies of the World's First Computer

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 17 mins)

    The world's first programmable computer was the legendary ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), built by John Mauchly and Presper Eckert. Based on original interviews with surviving participants and the first study of Mauchly and Eckert's personal papers, ENIAC is a dramatic human story and a vital contribution to the history of technology, and it restores to the two inventors the legacy they deserve.

    "Computing history has never been as entertaining."
    Overall

    This is a fantastic audio book. Not only is the story interesting and the writing fluent, but also the narrator speaks with an intrigued anticipation, making this audio book an engulfing peace of obscure history. The only disappointment is that the last hour is dedicated to citations, so you really only get about six-and-a-half-hours of story. Although, I hate to call journalistic integrity a disappointment.

    If you care anything at all about computers this is worth a listen.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    I had not become a fan of this story until recently, and this rendition has made me appreciate it a lot more. Tim Curry gives a wonderful performance. Thank you Audible for the great gift!

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    Deborah says: "Do They Give Awards For "Best Reader"?"

    Overall

    This was my first Christopher Moore story, and I enjoyed the heck out of it. It is quite funny, and generally entertaining. Susan Bennett does a great job with all of the voices; they're very distinguishable, and they all have their own subtle nuances. I was hocked on Christopher Moore after this book.
