This book provides great insight into the new Bush Doctrine with compelling cases and theory. Even if you don't agree with the Bush Doctrine this is an excellent read for gaining insight in what can be expected in the future. This book uses reason, facts, and historical cases to back up its claims not unsubstantiated assumptions. Written before the war it makes some erroneous claims about the immediate results of war but is very good nonetheless.
A Song of Ice and Fire is one of the finest fantasies ever put to paper, but the nature of Feast, being actually half of one whole book, lacks the breadth of the other novels. The story is transitional, a hill to scale before the finale, but the writing is still excellent. Perhaps the greatest failing is the lack of Roy Dotrice as narrator. I was introduced to the series through his voice and his narration quivered with life, its not the same without him. Any other person trying to do justice to the same characters cannot hope to match it. Dotrice's narration would make exciting listen about 100 times better.
The Inferno is an excellent work in itself and is extremely interesting for anyone. The narration of Mr. Cleese is however somewhat difficult to follow. His overly-excited and passionate voices for the suffering denizens of hell are difficult to make out. It is however very fun to hear a voice from a Monty Python movie or the like come through. Listen carefully and follow along and you shouldn't have too many problems.
This is an absolutely hilarious listen. P.J. uses humor to cut through most of the political rhetoric and modern ecological mumbo-jumbo and junk science and create a scathing critique of all the doom and gloom mongers in the world. O'Rourke takes on the normally tired and boring "save the world" arguments we've been hearin since we were children and eviscerates them with their own failed predictions and by exposing the actual state of the world asit is. His optimistic and hilarious outlook on the world is refreshing and necessary. Please listen, you won't regret it.
This book is truly a materpiece, it and its successors in McCullough's Master of Rome series will prove to be on a level all their own. The sheer amount of detail, care, research, and excitement is astounding. Colleen is a genius and this project is on a level unprecedented in recent History. Only O'Brien's Master and Commander Series can compare in the relm of Historical Fiction. Listen and enjoy this great work. It may prove well to buy the book since its guide to names and Latin phrases are intensely useful.
