  • The Master and Margarita

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 51 mins)

    Story

    The Devil comes to Moscow, but he isn't all bad; Pontius Pilate sentences a charismatic leader to his death, but yearns for redemption; and a writer tries to destroy his greatest tale, but discovers that manuscripts don't burn. Multi-layered and entrancing, blending sharp satire with glorious fantasy, The Master and Margarita is ceaselessly inventive and profoundly moving. In its imaginative freedom and raising of eternal human concerns, it is one of the world's great novels.

    "Excellent narration of my favorite book"
    Overall

    To me, this book is so brilliant and magical that I wasn't sure any narrator could do it justice. However, the narrator captured the spirit and exuberance of this book and brought it beautifully to life. I know it shouldn't be possible to have a favorite book, but this is mine - the best novel ever written. Bulgakov is a genius and the reader, Julian Rhind-Tutt, is absolutely wonderful.

  • The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    Story

    Like many books I choose from audible.com, I know this is a book I would never have gotten though by reading it. But, it's a terrific listen. This is a thought-provoking book that will stay with you for a long time because it presents so many well-reasoned lessons on how we live our daily lives. The best thing about the book is its ultimate lesson - keep trying, the odds are with you. That's very encouraging. I highly recommend this audio book.
