For those of you who are fans of Dirk Gently, be prepared for a wonderful aural experience that will amaze your inner mind (or at least the part that isn't full of penguins). This adaptation of the late Douglas Adams' second Dirk Gently story offers wonderful insights into the many characters introduced in this story. It also offers an excellent look at the characters we came to know and love in the first Dirk Gently dramatization.
I love time travel. But putting the arrival date so far away from the point the character is supposed to change and then basically having me read his diary? Yaaawn! Nice try, sir.
There are all kinds of survival guides in this world ranging from living in the frozen tundra to not being baked or eaten alive if you have to make an emergency landing in the Sahara. But none of these even come close to preparing you for what awaits you in life like How To Survive a Horror Movie.
If you enjoy horror and want to get a tongue-in-cheek look at how to deal with some of your old faves, you will enjoy this richly presented audio version of this wonderful book.
Also, listening before bed may help alleviate nightmares since the steps within can be converted to dealing with those also.
I wonder what that nice police constable thought about the trip he got sent on. If you want to know where he was sent, be sure to read this incredible tale of mind-over-matter as told by H.G. Wells, the incredibly gifted author who gave us that wonderful novel, "The Time Machine". And be sure to read his other short stories as well.
Some of Poe's best works are to be found in this anthology of tales. Included is a tale of detective work that would do Sherlock Holmes Proud ("The Murders in the Rue Morgue"), an introspective of man's quirks and faults ("Some Words with a Mummy"), and two excellent tales of revenge ("The Cask of Amontillado" and my personal favorite "Hop Frog") that will terrify and amaze you.
Having only ever seen the David Lynch movie, I wasn't sure how 3 hours of somewhat okay content was going to translate into over 20 hours without seeming superfluous or worse. Was I in for a surprise. There was so much in this book that I didn't know about the Attreides family. I thought, as I said, that the Lynch film was okay, but now that I've read this, I don't think I'll ever be able to fully enjoy either video version as fully as I did beforhand.
This is some of George Carlin's best work. Funny and timeless, its views on society are still true to this day. From tips on how to best imitate Ed Sullivan to a hilarious weather report from his character "Al Sleet: The Hippy-Dippy Weatherman" Carlin delivers some of the finest comedy in this sterling performance.
