  • At Home: A Short History of Private Life

    Bill Bryson was struck one day by the thought that we devote more time to studying the battles and wars of history than to considering what history really consists of: centuries of people quietly going about their daily business. This inspired him to start a journey around his own house, an old rectory in Norfolk, considering how the ordinary things in life came to be.

    Rachel says: "Best use of a credit"

    Overall

    A witty, wonderfully excursive wander around the home. Bryson has uncovered so many enthralling stories and apparently endless pieces of fascinating trivia that this audio book is positively addictive!

    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.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"

    Wonderful, harrowing, absorbing, terrifying. This book is a rollercoaster ride all the way. I'm glad that I am blessed by living in Australia.

  • Schulz and Peanuts: A Biography

    Charles Schulz, the most widely syndicated and beloved cartoonist of all time, is also one of the most misunderstood figures in American culture. Now, acclaimed biographer David Michaelis gives us the first full-length biography of Schulz: at once a creation story, a portrait of a hidden American genius, and a chronicle contrasting the private man with the central role he played in shaping the national imagination.

    Bruce says: "Not as dark as you've heard"
    "Schulz and Peanuts"
    Overall

    A very interesting book. Schulz was very unlike I would have imagined from his cartoons, which I think are wonderful.

    In this book, C.S. Lewis tells of his search for joy, a spiritual journey that led him from the Christianity of his early youth into atheism and then back to Christianity.

    An excellent book. Wonderful insights into CS Lewis' life and what shaped his writing. Inspirational!
