    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry rescues Charles Dickens from the jaws of Disney with his one-of-a-kind performance of the treasured classic. Our listeners loved this version so much that it inspired our whole line of Signature Classics.

    You have heard this story a thousand times before but you have not truly heard the story until you listen to Tim Curry. He is a genius. Get this book for the holiday season!

  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames

    Story
    (1240)

    Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him all over again. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine.

    Overall

    This is, hands down, the worst book I have ever read. I did not laugh one time, not even a chuckle. I had to muscle my way through so I did not feel like I wasted my $14.95 credit. His earlier books may have been masterpieces, but this was a master piece of crap, don't waste your credit, and for the love of god, ignore the people that gave this book a good review because they liked his earlier works!

    Joe Torre is the most successful and most respected baseball manager of the modern era, steering the Yankees to six American League pennants and four World Series championships. When he left the team in 2007, it was front-page news around the country. Famously diplomatic during his tenure with the Yankees, Torre finally speaks out about what it was like building and managing the dynasty during those 12 glorious and tumultuous years.

    Lynn says: "Great listen"
    "Wonderfully Insightful!"
    Overall

    What I thought was going to be a book chock full of boring facts turned out to be a wonderful journey inside the clubhouse of the Yankees 1996-2008 seasons. The story is written in chronological order and does not jump around. Joe Torre goes into detail about his relationships with each one of his Yankee stars that made an impact with the team for the 12 years he was manager. He also goes into detail about how difficult and rewarding it was to work for the Steinbrenner family. My favorite section of the book detailed each one of the 4 World Series season (1996, 1998-2000). If you are a Yankees fan, this is a must read.
