  • American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies That the Government Tells

    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

  • The Kite Runner

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

  • Gallipoli: Our Last Man Standing: The Extraordinary Life of Alec Campbell

    Story
    (6)

    With Alec Campbell's death, a door has closed to which no one has the key. Australia has lost the last direct link to one of the nation's most significant events and to a breed of Australians who have become larger than life - legends in our national psyche. He was not at Gallipoli long, though he dodged his share of bullets, saw his mates get shot and suffered fever and sickness as did so many of his peers.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I mistook the book for a story about the battle of Gallipoli.


    Which character ??? as performed by Peter Byrne ??? was your favorite?

    I'm just a big fan of Peter Byrne


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a story abut a great man, who spend most of his life, improving the life of the working class.


    Any additional comments?

    No doubt that Alec Campbell was a great man. But the battle of Gallipoli was a tiny bit of his life. Maybe not in his mind, but at least in time spend there. So the front cover of the book, is kind of misleading, since there where other things in his life, that took a great deal of his life. The Unions and the sailing. I was searching for a book about the battle of Gallipoli and about the daily life of the ANZAC troops. I just got the wrong book.

  • God Is Not Great: The Case Against Religion

    With robust clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which Hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. God Is Not Great marvels at the possibility of society without religion.

    Would you try another book from Christopher Hitchens and/or Christopher Hitchens?

    Absolutely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That It gave me some new reasons to be opponent of religion.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Mr. Hitchens could have been more clear in his reading. He mumbled a bit :-).


    Was God Is Not Great worth the listening time?

    Yes indeed.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately for me, I don't speak that well English. So there where some part of the book, that I didn't understand. But I can hardly blame that on Mr. Hitchens :-). After listening to his book, I began viewing a lot of his debates on the internet. I have then become a great fan of him. What a loss, that he just died. But searching on his name, gave me a lot of other persons with the same views. So all is not lost ;-).
