  • Dirk Gently: The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (Dramatised)

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 17 mins)

    Story
    (114)

    Harry Enfield exuberantly returns as Dirk Gently, who, fallen on hard times and dressed as a gypsy woman, is using his irritatingly accurate clairvoyant powers to read palms. He is saved when a frantic client turns up with a ludicrous story about being stalked by a goblin waving a contract accompanied by a hairy, green-eyed, scythe-wielding monster.

    "More to enjoy!"
    Overall

    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.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Story

    This is a beautifully irreverent look at the childhood of Joshua (Jesus). Told from the point of view of a good friend, it is a marvelously amusing reminder of His humanity. Makes me feel even closer to Him.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (16613)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    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.

  • How To Survive a Horror Movie: All the Skills to Dodge the Kills

    Seth Grahame-Smith delivers the definitive, essential guide to making it through a horror movie in one piece. As hilarious as it is useful (if you’re trapped in a scary flick, that is), How to Survive a Horror Movie covers all the bases. Trapped in a haunted house? Check. Stalked by an evil doll? Check. Wandering aimlessly through the remains of the old world as a plague of zombies sweeps over the planet? Check.

    Story

    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.

    After George McWhirter Fotheringay discovers that he is able to perform miracles in a local bar after he professes not to believe in them, he experiments in his home with whimsical results. He seeks the advice of local clergyman, Mr. Maydig, who decides to begin a campaign of using Fotheringay's powers to reform the world. But with best of intentions, Mr. Fotheringay has little knowledge and less foresight. Before long a miracle backfires and he must use his power one last time to undo the cataclysm.

    Kindle Customer says: "probably revolutionary in its time"
    "Food for thought"
    Overall

    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.

    One Voice Recordings presents amazingly versatile voice actor David Ian Davies performing 10 of Edgar Allan Poe's most famous short stories: "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Sphinx", "The Descent into the Maelstrom", "Hop-Frog", "The Man of the Crowd", "Some Words With a Mummy", "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether", "Shadow: A Parable", and "Silence: A Fable".

    Jay says: "Pure enjoyment"
    "Some great tales"
    Overall

    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.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Joshua says: "Wonderful production!"
    "Better than the film"
    Overall

    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.

    FM & AM found Carlin officially poking fun at, while incorporating, his early material, performed in the lounges of America and on The Ed Sullivan Show. It also marked Carlin's metamorphosis from straight-laced to hippie, as he intentionally embraced the growing counterculture. The recording is divided into two separate manifestations of humor, making it a sort of comedy concept album.

    Sebastian says: "Some of his best"
    "Some of his best"
    Overall

    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.
