  • Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War

    From the perilous ocean crossing to the shared bounty of the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim settlement of New England has become enshrined as our most sacred national myth. Yet, as best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick reveals in his spellbinding new book, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a 55-year epic that is at once tragic, heroic, exhilarating, and profound.

    John M says: "Fascinating book about a little-understood time"
    "Good history, the author's superior air detracts"
    Overall

    The history is fascinating and the research is much appreciated. But the cynicism and the judgmental arrogance of the author get very tiresome long before the book ends.

  • Decision Points

    Story
    (667)

    Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

    Dave says: "Not a bad choice"
    "Very foul language."
    Overall

    If gutter language is good, then this book is good. Disappointing that Mr. Bush could not tell his story without stooping so low.

  • The Conservative Mind: From Burke to Eliot

    Story

    Kirk defines "the conservative mind" by examining such brilliant men as Edmund Burke, James Fenimore Cooper, Alexis de Tocqueville, John Quincy Adams, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Benjamin Disraeli, Cardinal Newman, George Santayana, and finally, T.S. Eliot. Vigorously written, the book represents conservatism as an ideology born of sound intellectual traditions.

    "Worth the time and effort"
    Overall

    This book should be read/listened to - not for correctness - and not for conclusions - but because it broadens the background of almost every reader by presenting competing viewpoints to those propagated by academia and the popular media.

  • Angela's Ashes

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 57 mins)

    Story
    (1251)

    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"
    "Where's the character development?"
    Overall

    How can a book be this long and focus on one character and have the character remain so shallowly depicted? There is action, but very little depth to make us care about the main character. And no other character in the book grows, either. For what it's worth, though, the narration is very good.
