  • The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture

    For the past 30 years, David Mamet has been a controversial and defining force in theater and film, championing the most cherished liberal values along the way. In some of the great movies and plays of our time, his characters have explored the ethics of the business world, embodied the struggles of the oppressed, and faced the flaws of the capitalist system. But in recent years Mamet has had a change of heart.

    Expertly articulated and well supported conservative views. No longer brain-dead. . .

    Great narration -- as if it was Mamet himself speaking.

  • Master and Commander: Aubrey/Maturin Series, Book 1

    (864)

    This, the first in the splendid series of Jack Aubrey novels, establishes the friendship between Captain Aubrey, Royal Navy, and Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and intelligence agent, against the thrilling backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Details of life aboard a man-of-war in Nelson's navy are faultlessly rendered: the conversational idiom of the officers in the ward room and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the road of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, 100%. Master and Commander begins a great adventure that takes most people years to complete -- what joy!


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Tull – was your favorite?

    Maturin, but he does all so well it's hard to choose. I've read this whole series in print numerous times, and I'm finding them a wonderful new adventure because of Tull's perfect interpretation.


    Who was the most memorable character of Master and Commander and why?

    Aubrey and Maturin. Their personalities are so well developed and portrayed -- sets up the rest of the series exceptionally well. Bet you can't read just one. . .

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    • UNABRIDGED (41 hrs and 22 mins)

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    What did you love best about The Company?

    Even though very long it moved along well and kept my attention.


    What aspect of Scott Brick’s performance would you have changed?

    Brick wasn't the right reader for this book. I tired very quickly of his sighing endings and mispronounced words. . .


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

    No way!


    Any additional comments?

    I would have enjoyed the printed version better.
