    In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Jerry Lewis recounts with crystal clarity every step of a 50-year friendship, from the springtime, 1945 afternoon when the two vibrant young performers destined to conquer the world together met on Broadway and 54th Street, to their tragic final encounter in the 1990s, when Lewis and his wife ran into Dean Martin, a broken and haunted old man.

    Please..get the unabridged version, if only for the narrator, Stephen Hoye-he is magnificent and brings the characters to life, especially Jerry. Now that I've purchased and listened,curiosity led me back to the narrator sample of the abridged vesion. Suffice to say, I made the correct choice.

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

  • Defying Hitler: A Memoir

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 5 mins)

    Story
    (60)

    When the famous German author Sebastian Haffner died at the age of 91 in 1999, a manuscript was discovered among his unpublished papers. The book was begun in 1939, but with the advent of World War II, Haffner had set it aside. His family made the decision to publish it, and the book became a best seller in Germany in 2002. Spanning the period from 1907 to 1933, it offers a unique perspective on how the average educated German grappled with the rise of Hitler.

    Douglas says: "Great Read"
    "Great reader"
    Overall

    Undeniably, the best reader I have ever listened to- you actually feel as though he is the author. As for the book, I have always been fascinated by this period in history; wrongfully accusing the entire German population for the attrocities witnessed. Finally, a story that provides insight into the hellish Nazi peiod that divided a once proud people.
