    Italian Conversation is a three-hour, all-audio course which you can use at any time, whether you want a quick refresher before a trip or whether you are a complete beginner. The 20 dialogues will teach you the Italian you will need to speak and understand, without getting bogged down with grammar.

    "Good Car tool"
    Overall

    Very easy to use. The best teach yourself product I have used to date. Starts out with basics in a logical presentation. Just what you would need in the order you would use it. Speed increases un-noticed. Conversations are practical. Annunciation is very good.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    If you could sum up The Pillars of the Earth in three words, what would they be?

    Best one yet


    Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

    Pryor Phillip


    Any additional comments?

    This seems like a long book - a big investment in time but you will not regret this purchase. I was sorry it ended.
    John Lee's performance adds a great deal to the story.

    They were legalized pirates empowered by the Continental Congress to raid and plunder, at their own considerable risk, as much enemy trade as they could successfully haul back to America's shores. They played a decisive role in America's struggle for independence and later turned their seafaring talents to the slave trade, revealing the conflict between enterprise and morality central to American history.

    Matthew says: "Great topic - poor treatment"
    "I find myself wanting to hear it again"
    Overall

    The book gave me a deeper understanding of the period, the politics and the characters involved. I find myself recalling details I heard often. I never knew how many of our founding fathers were involved in our early Navy. It is a bit long however I will listen again.
