  • Wuthering Heights

    Story
    (270)

    When Mr. Earnshaw brings a black-haired foundling child into his home on the Yorkshire moors, he little imagines the dramatic events which will follow. The passionate relationship between Cathy Earnshaw and the foundling, Heathcliff, is a story of love, hate, pity, and retribution, the effects of which reverberate throughout the succeeding generations.

    Stephanie says: "Classic"
    "Best listen so far"
    Overall

    Listening to this version of Wuthering Heights was absolutely riveting. Normally I don't like multiple readers but it worked very well for this production. I am left trying to decide if this is a love story or a tale of horror because the portrayal of Heathcliff as a seriously mentally ill man was so strong.

  • Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century

    Story

    He was a tough-guy Welshman softened by the affections of a breathtakingly beautiful woman; she was a modern-day Cleopatra madly in love with her own Mark Antony. For nearly a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty, and their fiery romance - often called "the marriage of the century" - was the most notorious, publicized, and celebrated love affair of its day.

    Brenda Miller says: "Paul Boehmer needs more practice"
    "Narrator makes this work"
    Overall

    I loved this book. I might have taken it just as tabloid except for the effective narration. Paul Boehmer manages to "be" both Elizabeth and Richard without resorting to annoying voices. I was particularly struck with the power that Richard had with language which comes through in his letters and the delivery with a deeper voice and a lovely accent.

    Story

    Brewster Kahle, Digital Librarian and Director & Co-founder of the Internet Archive, explains how he first developed the idea and tools to archive the Web. He also explains why archiving is important to our every day use of the Internet. The title of his talk is "Universal Access to Knowledge". A panel discussion follows. This is the second lecture in the Library of Congress Digital Future series.

    Mark says: "The series is fantastic"
    "Thank you for making this available"
    Overall

    I listened to this lecture on my long walk home from work. I have never walked so quickly as I got more intrigued by the ideas being expressed. There were so many projections for the future that Brewster Kahle suggests are reasonably within our grasp. His ideas beg the question of why we haven't made more of an effort to achieve the goals. This was an excellent program.

    In a thrilling narrative showcasing his gifts as storyteller and researcher, Erik Larson recounts the spellbinding tale of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Also available abridged.

    D says: "A Rich Read!"
    "Know yourself and enjoy!"
    Overall

    Are you intested in solving problems? Can you handle a little gore? Do you want to know how great minds (sane and otherwise) solved problems. This is a great listen but be sure that you are OK with lots of detail about building challenges and detailed solutions. I enjoyed this thoroughly as an eye opener to another age that led to so many of the things that we are familiar with today. However those of you not keen on building detail might find it dry.
