  • Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold

    Set in the pre-Christian world of Glome on the outskirts of Greek civilization, it is a tale of two princesses: the beautiful Psyche, who is loved by the god of love himself, and Orual, Psyche's unattractive and embittered older sister, who loves Psyche with a destructive possessiveness. Her frustration and jealousy over Psyche's fate sets Orual on the troubled path of self-discovery. Lewis's last work of fiction, this is often considered his best by critics.

    Where does Till We Have Faces rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Above average.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Till We Have Faces?

    I particularly enjoyed the ending for its uniqueness. It's so rare when someone doesn't manage to say everything they need to before expiring.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Getting water in the morning and sort of seeing it, then convincing herself it wasn't real.


    If you could take any character from Till We Have Faces out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Psyche. She is the most wholesome and true character.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 22 mins)

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"

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

    No.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The final story told, in the epilogue, was my favorite. it made the author more relatable.


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

    No. Lots of information was presented, and multiple breaks helped to process it thoroughly.
