  • The Women: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 34 mins)

    Told through the experiences of the four women who loved him, this imaginative account of Frank Lloyd Wright's raucous life blazes with Boyle's trademark wit and invention. Boyle's protean voice captures these very different women and, in doing so, creates a masterful ode to the creative life in all its complexity and grandeur.

    "Not just one, but three women behind the man..."
    Overall

    Frank Lloyd Wright is well known for setting new standards in architectural design. This book tells of how he pushed the envelope on social and even moral issues of his time - mistresses, divorces, equality of the sexes and races... The narrative is told by one of his apprentices in a very unique third party tale whose chronology jumps back and forth.

  • Our Noble, Essential Decency: A 'This I Believe' Essay

    This essay comes from the NPR series This I Believe, which features brief personal reflections from both famous and unknown Americans. The pieces that make up the series compel listeners to rethink not only what and how they have arrived at their beliefs, but also the extent to which they share them with others.

    Cather says: "The Dean"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    Not only is this a chance to hear the great Heinlein himself speak, but his words are thought provoking. A must listen.

    So what is it that makes Jane Austen a Great Writer? Step back in time and enter the elegant chapter of history known as the Regency period and find the "lady" who breathed life into such sparkling characters as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, who have in turn gone on to inspire more recent romantic novelists to follow in Jane Austen's footsteps. Whether you're a Jane Austen fan or simply looking to discover more about this incredible writer.

  • Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries

    Neil deGrasse Tyson has a talent for guiding readers through the mysteries of outer space with stunning clarity and almost childlike enthusiasm. This collection of his essays from Natural History magazine explores a myriad of cosmic topics. Tyson introduces us to the physics of black holes by explaining what would happen to our bodies if we fell into one; he also examines the needless friction between science and religion, and notes Earth's status as "an insignificantly small speck in the cosmos".

    Lind says: "Well written and well read"
    "Explaining the Unknown"
    Overall

    The author does a great job of explaining scientific concepts so someone without an advanced degree in physics can understand. Great non-fiction read for those who want to continue to expand their knowledge about the world(s) around us.

  • Citizen of the Galaxy

    Story
    (525)

    Citizen of the Galaxy takes place far in the future, when the human race has spread out to colonize other planets. In a slave market in the capital of Jubbul and the Nine Worlds, an auctioneer announces, "Lot 97. A boy." Slavery is commonplace in Jubbul, and the sight of the ragged, starving boy, Thorby, on the auction block is not unusual. What does puzzle bystanders and Thorby himself is his purchase by crippled Baslim, the beggar who sits every day in a corner of the marketplace.

    L. says: "One of Heinlein's best"
    "Great Story!"
    Overall

    Heinlein does an excellent job in weaving yet another tale that travels throughout space. His character development is superb. This is a "can't put it down yet" story. Enjoy.
