  • Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life

    • UNABRIDGED (36 hrs and 48 mins)

    Story
    (211)

    Che Guevara was a dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution. Jon Lee Anderson traces Che's extraordinary life from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle.

    Matthew says: "Encompassing and Fair Look at an Historical Man"
    "Too Many Che T shirts"
    Overall

    The author tried to keep an even look at Che's life but his constant excusing of the shelfish and brutal acts of this "hero" shows his real agenda. Even with his excusing of these acts I found it quite interesting to read about this Communist community organizer. The work is probably more balanced than most about Che and I recommend this to anybody who is interested or who doesn't know much about Che.

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I got bored with it and didn't listen to the second half. I'm sure the story is interesting to hackers but I became boged down with all of the technical phone talk and lost interest.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kevin Mitnick and William L. Simon again?

    Probably not


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance was very good. I don't recall listening to his other work.


    Was Ghost in the Wires worth the listening time?

    Not for me

    Story
    (89)

    When a midshipman plunges six stories to his death, the U.S. Naval Academy begins investigating an apparent suicide. But there's a bizarre twist: the young man's body is found wearing undergarments belonging to Midshipman Julie Markham, a senior at the academy.

    Greg Rossvanes says: "Talk about edge of your seat!"
    "A good read"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the narative and the story. The characters were well explained, and of course Dick Hill does a masterful job with the telling. This is my first read of a Deutermann novel but I will definately be listening to more of his work

  • Waking Giant: America in the Age of Jackson

    Story

    The years from 1815 to 1848 were arguably the richest period in American life. In Waking Giant, award-winning historian David S. Reynolds illuminates the era's exciting political story alongside the fascinating social and cultural movements that influenced it. He casts fresh light on Andrew Jackson, who redefined the presidency, as well as John Quincy Adams and James K. Polk, who expanded the nation's territory and strengthened its position internationally.

    Tad Davis says: "Lucid narration"
    "Interested in American History?"
    Overall

    If you are interested in U. S. history this is a must book for you. Details and insights without judgment or an agenda. A terrific volume about a part of American history that is generally ignored. I couldn't stop listening.
