    Fifty years after her death, Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe still beguiles the world, her image enthralling millions. Many books have attempted to explain her allure and tell her story, but none has succeeded as well as this work by acclaimed biographer Donald Spoto. Spoto’s exhaustive research uncovers a conspiracy of silence, allowing him to present the facts, free from often-repeated myths and speculation. Granted access to more than thirty-five thousand pages of formerly sealed files containing letters, diaries, appointment books, and other intimate papers, he also interviewed nearly two hundred people who had never before spoken on record.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Marilyn Monroe to be better than the print version?

    I do not have the print version so I cannot compare.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author did a lot of research and it shows. Also I liked that he spoke about well known rumors and told which ones had no fact behind them and put them to rest. I am glad I chose this as my first Monroe listen.


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

    Emotion.


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

    yes.

    Vincent van Gogh is best known for two things – his sunflowers and his ear-cutting. But there are many other ways of knowing this remarkable son of a Dutch pastor, who left his chill homeland for the sunshine of Arles in the South of France; and left us over a thousand frank letters of struggle and joy, to help us glimpse his inner world. Vincent came late to painting after spending time in London trying to be a Christian missionary.

    Douglas says: "An Imaginary Premise..."
    "A fascinating way to tell his story."

    Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-U.N. envoy turned private eye, has changed careers, and bodies, once more, trading sleuthing for soldiering as a warrior-for-hire and helping a far-flung planet's government put down a bloody revolution.

    Story
    What did you love best about Broken Angels?

    I loved Broken Angels because it trusts the audience to figure out what is happening without giving to much description of this new world. It is like Richard Morgan said, "Here are some basic essentials, now go ahead and have a look around this future I have created." The main character is a total bad a**. I enjoyed this ride.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character because he is an experienced soldier without prejudice of what race of woman he wants, confident, and sarcastic.


    What about Todd McLaren’s performance did you like?

    He is a talented voice performer who knows how and when to be suspensful or dramatic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they enter the martian ship. So erie.

    Story

    When an unexpected medical crisis sends Naomi Wolf on a deeply personal journey to tease out the intersections between sexuality and creativity, she discovers, much to her own astonishment, an increasing body of scientific evidence that suggests that the vagina is not merely flesh, but an intrinsic component of the female brain - and thus has a fundamental connection to female consciousness itself.

    Story
    What did you like best about Vagina? What did you like least?

    I was at first embarrassed to listen to this book, but was quickly reassured with facts I had never known. I found myself seperating the facts from some extreme feminist opinions sprinkled here and there but maybe thats just me. Over all a truthful, beautiful, and real history of the vagina.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have kept it more historical and scientific as it is in the beginning, and omitted the author's extreme feminist views and opinions.


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

    She brings to this book a health issue I was unaware of and a breakdown of nerves in the vagina and how they attach to the spine and several other facts and scientific findings I found very amazing.


    Was Vagina worth the listening time?

    I listened to it the entire way through.
