  • Angela's Ashes

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"

    Story
    (363)

    Sarah Vowell travels through the American past and investigates the dusty, bumpy roads of her own life. Her essays confront a wide range of subjects, icons, and historical moments: Ike, Teddy Roosevelt, and Bill Clinton; Canadian Mounties and German Filmmakers; Tom Cruise and Buffy the Vampire Slayer; twins and nerds; the Gettysburg Address, the State of the Union, and George W. Bush's inauguration. The result is an engrossing audiobook, capturing Vowell's memorable wit and her keen social commentary.

    Erik says: "A great listen"
    "Why Didn't I Find Sarah Vowell Sooner??!!"
    Overall

    I have just finished this audiobook and the first place I came was back to Audible.com to download any other books by Sarah Vowell! This book is AMAZING! Don't be put off by reviewers that claim that it is a left wing political book or that Sarah's voice is whiney or irritating. Neither is true. The book is personal and has no political axe to grind that I could see. As for Sarah's voice, c'mon this is a person that is a professional voice over artist and radio personality! As an American, I was moved by the content and the author's reading made it that much more personal for me!! Try this book!

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 51 mins)

    Story
    (313)

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Give Me More Al"
    Overall

    I have listened to this book twice and I just can't get enough! It is funny, informative, sad and really, really funny. Thanks Al, please write more books like this!!!!
