I loved this listen. Professor Lewin made physics the living fascinating thing it is. The vivid examples and explanations gave me a new appreciation for rainbows and cans of paint.
If you loved Physics in school I recommend this book as an interesting listen. If you hated Physics. I highly recommend this book as an eye opening explanation of so much of the world that surrounds us.
Not a criminal mastermind but more a man who wanted to "Be someone" more than anything else. Clyde Barrow led an interesting and somewhat charmed life. The tales of his adventures criss-crossing the midwest were interesting and filled in all I didnt know.
If you are interested in biographies you will find this and interesting look into the lives of two of our countries most notorious criminals.
I found the narration easy to listen to and somehow "Newsy" enough to fit the topic perfectly.
Samuel L. Jackson has raised use of the F-Bomb to an art form. Welcome to his museum.
Serge Storm is a Florida trivia spouting bad guy with a scientific curiosity, friends everywhere, a twisted sense of morality, and a knack for killing creativley. His friend Coleman is clueless but always there to help.
A fast moving raucous story that takes you from one end of Florida to the other with a historical tour along the way. The characters are vivid and endearing the narration is spot on.
This was my second listen of a Serge Storm book. there will be more.
Pompous, arrogant, foolish, oblivious to all but himself and so much more. Ignatius J. Riley is one of the more memorable literary characters of our time. At times I felt sorry for him, raged over him, or just shook my head. Mrs. Riley, the mother of Ignatius should be sainted.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the performance which made the characters come alive. By the end of the book I found myself looking for other book by Mr. Toole and others narrated by Mr. Whitener.
I found Mr. whiteners voice and style flowing and an easy pleasant listen.
I found myself overcome with emotion moments into the book. One of our bravest one one of the most difficult duties. This is an intense and interesting story of some of America's finest giving their all for our country and for each other.
I soon found myself sitting in the car until the last possible moment unwilling to turn it off. A great story with equally good narration. I highly recommend "Lone survivor"
Several stories spanning many years are all intricately woven together in Narrows Gate. Well, intricately like a jigsaw puzzle rather than a doily. Often predictable and slow the story though engaging enough was easy to predict. None of the characters were particularly clever. Narration was at times labored and voices of different characters were indistinguishable.
That said I still found the story interesting enough that I finished the book and would not rate it lower. There was an occasional interesting turn of events but like an episode of Star Trek it wound up quickly. It took five minutes for Captain Kirk to get them into trouble and 5o minutes to get them out of it. Here the trouble started right away and ended suddenly 8 hours later.
An engaging story about a hopeless geek who makes good, and an engaging romp down memory lane with thousands of culture references. All too many of which I am afraid to admit that I knew.
Will Wheaton’s narrations is spot on with the wonder of discovery, the depression of loneliness, and the wonderment of meeting “On line friends” for the first time. The story flowed well with a smooth writing style.
I heartily recommend this book to others, particularly those of us “of a certain age” who will enjoy the stroll down memory lane
Though the term of President Garfield seems ancient history to most of us this story brought to light just how recently it was. Political intrigue, invention, egotism and the state of medical practice all played large parts in the life, and death of our twentieth President.
The writing was clear and flowed well at times evoking awe of the man himself and sorrow at his passing. The narration was well done and switching to tonalities af alternate voices seemed effortless. I enjoyed this book greatly and now find myself wondering why I let it languish in my library of “purchased but un-listened” for so long.
If you are interested in history then I heartily recommend you put “Destiny of the Republic” on your listen to it now list.
