    He's one of America's most recognizable and acclaimed actors: a star on Broadway, an Oscar nominee for The Aviator, and the only person to ever win Emmys for acting, writing, and directing, during his 11 years on M*A*S*H. Now Alan Alda has written a memoir as elegant, funny, and affecting as his greatest performances.

    Overall

    I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this audiobook. I enjoyed the story very much, but wish I had known there is another version read by Alan Alda himself. Although Marc Cashman is a goood reader, I could here Mr Alda's style in the prose and kept imagining what it would be like to hear him read it. The material needs his unique way of delivering his lines to bring the story to life.

  • The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew and How Far She'll Go to Become President

    Like it or not, Hillary Clinton is almost assuredly going to run for president in 2008. It doesn't matter that her negative poll numbers are high or that her past 15 years in the public eye have been anything but smooth. Since she was a little girl she has dreamed about becoming the first female president, and now that dream is well within reach.

    One of the worst I have read. Full of inuendo and alegations, very few facts. don't waste your time.

  • A Christmas Carol [Listening Library Version]

    This is Jim Dale's incomparable telling of the beloved A Christmas Carol, a "little book," as Charles Dickens himself called it, which has been treasured by generations since December of 1843. Listeners of all ages will be enthralled as they meet for the first time, or are reunited with, that miser of all misers, Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge.

    R. Adams says: "Jim Dale is a great narrator"
    "Best Reding"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of this story. I have a collection of different versions of A Christmas Carol. This is easily the best read version I have come across. Jim Dale is superb.

  • The Memory of Running

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    This book was wonderful. I started it with no expectations, just looking for something different. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the characters and story. This is a book I will never forget. I highly recommend it.

  • Blackwood Farm

    A story of youth and promise, of loss and the search for love, of secrets and destiny, Blackwood Farm brings together the Vampire Chronicles and the story of the Mayfair Witches, and is Anne Rice at her mesmerizing best.

    K E Courchaine says: "She is back!"
    "Intriguing"
    Overall

    I disagree with most of the other reviews. The fact that Lestat makes only a nominal appearance here is not important. If all Anne Rice ever did was to write stories about Lestat, I would be bored. However, Ms Rice has a wonderful ability to create characters and her portrayal of Quinn is no exception. Blackwood Farm not only allows the reader to explore a new life but brings together the 2 great stories that she is famous for, the Mayfair Witches and the Vampire Chronicles, with a touch of the eroticism of her less well known works. I was intrigued throughout and couldn't wait to get into my car for the next chapter as I made my daily commute.

  • Interview with the Vampire

    Interview with the Vampire is a novel that evokes the brilliance, the decadence, the horror of The Vampire's world - as he pours out the erotically charged confessions of his first two hundred years as one of the living dead.

    Tara says: "Where's the ending????"
    "Disapointed with Reader"
    Overall

    I loved this book when I originally read it years ago. After reading all the rest of the Vampire Chronicles, I was anxious to revisit this one. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. The reader came off like an old Dracula movie, not the all too human vampire that Lestat was in the book. In addition, the abridged version left way too much out. If an unabridged version comes out with a better reader, such as the man who read The Vampire Armand or Memnoch the Devil, I will gladly trash my copy of this version in favor of a better rendition.
