  • Mysteries of the Middle Ages

    After the long period of cultural decline known as the Dark Ages, Europe experienced a rebirth of scholarship, art, literature, philosophy, and science, and began to develop a vision of Western society that remains at the heart of Western civilization today.

    Amber says: "the dark ages illuminated"

    As another reviewer noted, the author shares his "entirely inappropriate" contemporary political views, beginning in the introduction and continuing on and on. He's not very bright for an historian: in 20 years, those views will be either discredited, in which case his book is laughable, or ephemeral, in which case his book is simply irrelevant.
    Read some Churchill instead: that man could write good history, and better English.

    Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium.

    "fun"
    Overall

    You know, it's not the most mysterious mystery, and it's not a deep book. But the main character is funny, and the book's read well.
    A great throwaway summer read!

  • Captain Blood

    Story

    George MacDonald Fraser, author of the Flashman novels, praises this hearty saga as "one of the great unrecognized novels of the 20th century." Doctor Peter Blood's quiet life is shattered when he is convicted of treason for helping a wounded nobleman in the 1685 rebellion against King James II.

    Gary says: "Outstanding rendition of classic swashbuckler"
    "A real page-turner...."
    Overall

    ..or whatever the term is for an audiobook. Sabatini really knows how to tell a tale, and the narrator is superb at doing the voices. Great download.
