  • The Surgeon's Mate: Aubrey/Maturin Series, Book 7

    Story
    (219)

    Jack Aubrey, Post Captain in the British Royal Navy, is suffused with happiness. The Shannon's engagement with the U.S. Chesapeake off the New England coast has resulted in victory, just another in a long string of them for Aubrey, nicknamed Lucky Jack for his tendency to win big. But Jack is less sure-footed by land than by sea.

    "tale by a 19th century seaman"
    Overall

    You are immersed in a very convincing English nautical tale with delightful characters. Sometimes the thick seaman's language leaves you guessing on what is gong on - but the smoke quickly clears and you know you have really been at battle with a ship of the line. This is my first read of the series (picked for the high ratings) and I probably should have started earlier - for the author assumes you have been aboard for awhile.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By Al Franken

    Story
    (332)

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "disapointing"
    Overall

    petty picking on the opposition: does the same as the conservatives
