    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    This audio performance was probably the best I've ever heard. A perfect audio book. Highly recommended.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Story

    Bought this on a whim... I'm now a devoted fan of John Green. "The Fault In Our Stars" transcends its "young adult" genre. It's just simply great fiction -- ageless and full of existential morsels which the author stirs in like your mother's best casserole (where you don't even taste the vegetables). The audio performance is nearly flawless. The characters are perfectly imperfect -- and the kind of people you can love enough to let them teach you some things about life. In short: highly, highly recommended. This is a book you won't forget anytime soon.

  • The Modern Scholar: The Anglo-Saxon World

    Had the Angles and Saxons not purposefully migrated to the isles of the Britons and brought with them their already-well-developed use of language, Angelina Jolie may never have appeared in the movie Beowulf. Professor Michael D.C. Drout is at his best when lecturing on the fascinating history, language, and societal adaptations of the Anglo-Saxons.

    "The Anglo Saxon World"
    Overall

    Fabulous course! Absolutely enthralling -- this is the kind of history teacher you always WISHED for in school. He makes the material accessible and consistently answers the "So What" question, ie: how does this history affect us now, in this century? Archeological, anthropological detail with crisp relevance! Highly recommended!
