    President Bill Clinton's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals.

    This dramatized audio edition of the Gospel of Luke brings out the rich, carefully researched details that have secured Luke's reputation as a preeminent historian. Beginning with the circumstances that surround Jesus' birth, from the political to the prophetic, Luke traces the footsteps of Jesus from his childhood to his ministry years to his death on the cross...and to history's most stunning event, his resurrection.

    Overall

    This book is one of the best I've heared in all the religious series.
    The narration and the quiet background music is very soothing. A great book anytime, day or night.
    Also a good lesson for children.

    In a voice as rich as it is recognized, James Earl Jones lends his narrative talents to the King James Version of the New Testament. In over 19 hours enhanced with a complete musical score, James Earl Jones interprets the most enduring book of our time utilizing the acclaimed actor's superb storytelling and skilled characterizations. Hailed as the greatest spoken-word Bible version ever, and with almost half a million copies sold, this exquisite audio treasury is certain to enthuse and inspire.

    "Background music"
    Overall

    The narrator is excellent. His voice is deep, yet very soothing.
    The only thing I found annoying is the music playing in the background. Personally I think it would be a much more enjoyable listening if there was no music at all.
    If you can, lisen to the sample before buying.

    Not the best quality but a fun book to lisen to especially if you make a CD so the whole family can lisen with you. It was a nice change instead of watch TV.
    If you like the old time comedians you love this one.

    Join actors from television's Star Trek - including Leonard Nimoy, Brent Spiner, and Gates McFadden - as they recreate this classic radio thriller. The breathless pace and convincing details make it clear why the 1938 broadcast caused a nationwide panic. You may panic too...

    I was little disappointed. I thought Orson Wells original radio program was what I purchased. It was ok lisening to but nothing like the original. This is why I'm rating it lower then probably deserves.

    John Nash was a mathematician teetering on the brink of international acclaim, but he fell instead into madness. Saved by the love of a beautiful woman and the loyalty of the mathematics community, he went on to win a Nobel Prize and worldwide fame. This is his true story.

    If you seen the movie (which I enjoyed) this book can answer any questions that were left out of the movie. It's quit long but worth lisening to.
