    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Stephen Redding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"
    "WOOW-- life changing"
    Overall

    This book is FANTASTCI-- Very well written, VERY interesting, and has changed how I see myself and my food in this world of ours. SCOTT Brick is wonderful reader as always. AAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    The indomitable Amelia Peabody and her husband, known to many as "the Father of Curses", are into archaeology and mischief again. This third in the series brings the reader once more into Egypt and the shady world of black market antiquities. The winter excavation season has hardly yet begun when Amelia stumbles onto what looks suspiciously like a ring of thieves.

    Fay says: "The Emersons and the mummy case - a must listen"

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    Middlemarch is a recognized masterpiece that explores the complex social world of 19th century England. It is concerned with the lives of several ordinary people, albeit ones with high social standing. The novel explores the very fabric of Victorian society in the 1800s, showing how various human passions, heroism, egotism, love, and lust, interrelate within this society.

    Francis says: "Such books make reading sacred..."
    "George Elliot always great"
    Overall

    Loved this book. One of the very best books I have listened to. So entertaining, So much depth to the characters. Kate Reading is a wondeful reader, I always enjoy what she performs. THE book is GREAT, much to reccommend it

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    Matthew says: "Darn funny if you're open to the idea."
    "Stiff: a great DROP DEADS BOOK"
    Overall

    loved this book, so interesting, well written and very well read,, loved it, looking for more of Mary Roach books

    The Charlemagne talisman, with its gold filigree volutes and enormous azure-blue sapphire, has caught Vicky Bliss' attention. When a man is found murdered with an enchanting copy of the antiquity in his pocket, along with an odd set of hieroglyphs, Vicky follows the trail of the gifted genius who created the fake to the narrow streets of the anitquity markets in Rome.

    Michelle says: "Much better than the first Vicky Bliss"
    "Elizabeth Peters and B. Rosenblat are fantastic"
    Overall

    a wonderful reader and a wonderful book, the entire Vicky Bliss series is a must, read by Barbara, for any Elizabeth Peters fan. I am a long time fan of both Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Rosenblat. Highly recommend.
