    As the lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison's searing poetic vision and voracious appetite for sexual, spiritual, and psychedelic experience inflamed the spirit and psyche of a generation. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Jim Morrison the most enjoyable?

    The overall story is so compelling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Comprehensive view into the Doors career.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Can relate more emotionally I think.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, extremely upset about Jim Morrison's self-destructive behavior on every other page. What a talent but what a shame.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed every minute of this and would recommend it to any Doors fan or classic rock fan.

  • Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand

    This brilliantly conceived book is based on a lecture course given by Dr. Leonard Peikoff in 1976 entitled, "The Philosophy of Objectivism". The lectures were attended by Ayn Rand, who helped prepare them and who also joined Peikoff in answering questions.

    Story

    I am an Ayn Rand and Leonard Peikoff fan. I could not make it past the first chapter or two of this audiobook. The concepts are broken down into such primitive elementals that attention flags. Do you really want to know how a child classifies a table? I suppose these elementary concepts are all put together again to establish the philosophy of Objectivism that we all know and love, but I just could not endure the punishment of listening to it all.

    Story
    (2416)

    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Tale of Momumental Evil, Stupidity and Hatred"
    "Captivating from Start to Finish"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich again? Why?

    Probably not - kind of long.


    What other book might you compare The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich to and why?

    I don't know maybe "Les Miserables" for length.


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure that I have.


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

    That would be physically impossible.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to echo a previous reviewer's comments about "start to finish". This book does hold your attention and interest the whole way through despite its length. Of course, there is a natural revulsion to the subject matter in spots, and so that slowed things down a little bit here and there as I had to take a break and regroup.
