    Marcus, a Roman officer in Nero's army, risks his career, his family, and even his life when he falls in love with a Christian woman named Callina. In order to win Callina's love, Marcus must come to understand the true meaning of her religion, even as Rome sinks under the excesses of Nero and Christians are thrown to the lions. Quo Vadis brims with passion and life as it explores one of the turning points in history.

    The narration is poorly performed. Could not get through more than about an hour of the book.

    An instant hit in the UK, this is the true account of a German shepherd who was adopted by the Royal Air Force during World War II, joined in flight missions, and survived everything from crash-landings to parachute bailouts-ultimately saving the life of his owner and dearest friend. In the winter of 1939 in the cold snow of no-man's-land, two loners met and began an extraordinary journey that would turn them into lifelong friends.

    Great story.
    It is impossible to find a more loyal friend than a dog.
    I remember and miss everyone that I have had the pleasure of sharing my life with.

    Good enough story but definitely not good for a long drive. Asleep at the wheel type of yarn.
    Very good narration

    The U.S. scientific community has long led the world in research on such areas as public health, environmental science, and issues affecting quality of life. Our scientists have produced landmark studies on the dangers of DDT, tobacco smoke, acid rain, and global warming. But at the same time, a small yet potent subset of this community leads the world in vehement denial of these dangers.

    If you could sum up Merchants of Doubt in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing how the term "follow the money" can be applied to most anything in politics and daily life.
