    Alice begins her fantastic journey by following an unprecedented White Rabbit with a pocket watch. While in the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, Alice takes advice from a caterpillar and attends a mad tea party. She meets the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon, and participates in a ludicrous courtroom scene. Each character has its own charming voice, as B. J. Harrison delivers one of his most whimsical performances.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It is truly weird.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, twice.


    Any additional comments?

    I became curious after hearing commentary on Carrol's' math roots but picked up the book for my youngest daughter. Oh my God, I was floored by the originality in content. Especially in Sci-fi so many stories try to create an original world but none compare to this. I loved it.

    In this audio edition of the totally revised underground best seller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business, from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed.

    It is 83 years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind.

    Story
    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the books of Dune are like a soap opera, you just listen (read) waiting for the end to tell you where the world of Dune sits. Then you start the next story. The arch is the same and very few scenes stand out. But the compulsion is base and I always need more.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, two
