    The best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse.

    Valerian says: "This is not unabridged"
    "Sad yet Powerful Book"
    Overall

    This book more than any other provides a true look into why we live and what is important.

  • True at First Light: A Fictional Memoir

    A blend of autobiography and fiction, the book opens on the day his close friend, Pop, a celebrated hunter, leaves Ernest in charge of the safari camp and news arrives of a potential attack from a hostile tribe. Drama continues to build as his wife, Mary, pursues the great black-maned lion that has become her obsession. Spicing his depictions of human longings with sharp humor, Hemingway captures the excitement of big-game hunting and the unparalleled beauty of the scenery.

    Dr. says: "Sad last book"
    "Something Missing"
    Overall

    Hemingway always leaves you wanting more, but this book does not seem to close in the same fashion. Would have been 4 or 5 stars without the last section.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Jeremy says: "Even Better The Second Time"
    "One of the Best Business Books I have Read."
    Overall

    The way in which examples were given drive home the points that are being put across.

    Suppose, neck deep in a tough day, you resolve to give it a chance. You choose not to drink, work, or worry it away. Instead, you decide to give it a fair shake. You trust more. Stress less. Amplify gratitude. Mute complaints. Before long, the day is done and surprisingly decent. In such a fashion, good lives are built. One good day at a time.

    The book provides much to think about, and provides more questions than true answers.

  • The Sun Also Rises

    The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway's masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful style. A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the story introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. Follow the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of the 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates.

    Gerald says: "Bravo Papa!"
    "Fun in Paris with a Finish in Spain"
    Overall

    I really liked the characters and how Hemingway introduces and then holds true to their persona in the book. I liked the flow and pace of the book, I think the descriptions of Paris and the Spanish country were telling.

    Though Ulysses is widely regarded as a "difficult" novel, this fresh and lively reading shows its comic genius as well as its great moments of poignance, making it more accessible than ever before.

    Jay says: "Fine Performance But Too Abridged"
    "Kind of Crazy"
    Overall

    I understood the book, but really did not like the pace and the nonsense for nonsense sake in the book.

    Jay Gatsby is still in love with Daisy, whom he met during the war when he was penniless. Having made himself wealthy through illegal means, he now lives in a mansion across the bay from the home of Daisy Buchanan, who has since married for money. Holding on to his illusion of Daisy as perfect, he seeks to impress her with his wealth, and uses his new neighbor, Nick Carraway, (our narrator), to reach her.

    Tad Davis says: "Didn't realize how good this was"
    "Classic for then and now"
    Overall

    Still a great book, and a great listen.
