  • The Short Stories, Volume II

    Before he gained wide fame as a novelist, Ernest Hemingway established his literary reputation with his short stories. Set in the varied landscapes of Spain, Africa, and the Americam Midwest, this definitive audio collection traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style: from the plain bald language of the first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude.

    Story

    Overall, this was definitely credit worthy. Hemingway's stories were very descriptive and thought provoking. Stacy keech's performance here was outstanding. Boring or annoying narration really irks me. But this was fantastic. I would recommended this to anyone who likes Hemingway or wants an introduction into his work. Very good.

    Covering interesting and varied philosophical terrain, Cycling - Philosophy for Everyone explores in a fun but critical way the rich philosophical, cultural, and existential experiences that arise when two wheels are propelled by human energy.

    Story

    I was sold on this book by the preview, where cycling quotes were read. That was the best part of this book. It was so frustrating to listen to this that I couldn't make it through 3 chapters. Really disappointing.

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 9 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Story

    This was my first audio book and it spoiled me. Taken, I am a runner...the topic appeals to me. But, overall, this is just a great story for anyone who likes learning about different cultures and sub-cultures. The narration is great...not boring or annoying for one second. The story is engaging. Great for anyone interested in running, adventure, cultures, lifestyles etc. Very good.

    Story

    This was a wasted credit and 8 hours that I managed to endure. The author is a scammer and BS artist. This book won't help you. The information really only applies to corporate upper management. The narrator is absolutely horrible. It is torture to listen to this garbage.
