    In Planet of the Damned, Brion Brandd, the winner of "The Twenties", a kind of planet-wide Olympics of both mind and body, barely has time to savor his victory when he is called away by a previous winner to help save Dis, a planet that seems intent on its own destruction and the destruction of it's neighbor.

    Excellent presentation of a great sci-fi story by Harry Harrison, one of the true masters of the genre. Very suspenseful...found myself looking for excuses to take long drives so I could listen to more!

    Kept in the Dark is a probing psychological portrait of the near destruction of a marriage - a novel that combines keen insights with vigorous emotional strength. Jealousy, guilt, excessive pride, and compulsion all sweep across its surface.

    Virginia says: "Fascinating Story"
    "Two A's and a B"
    Overall

    I give an A to the story and an A to the reader but just a B to the audio. It was clear enough but obviously done during pre-digital days since there was some "print-through," a slight echo effect that books done ten years or more ago have.
    However...I soon stopped noticing that and was caught up in the book. So..if less than perfect audio bothers you, I suggest you listen to the sample first. If you don't mind an older recording...it's a wonderful story and well read.

  • The Kama Sutra

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 31 mins)

    The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature. It is over 1,700 years old, yet it remains a best seller to this day. Part of the reason, of course, is it's incredible advice and creativity in the art of loving. But it is much more than that.

    Empowerment says: "Great Book"
    "WOW"
    Overall

    Wow! This was quite a listen! Sex positions and advice were incredible and insightful but a lot of the rest of the book is about ancient practices some of which which seem very strange today - even a bit absurd - like how to get your wife..or one of them..to help you seduce another woman!
    I must say, though, that ancient time certainly did not have the puritanical attitude and guilt about sex many have today. They LOVED it and went after it full bore! Kind of refreshing. I agree with another reviewer that the narrator was just right for this kind of book.
