    Before The Company, Robert Littell made a name for himself with The Defection of A.J. Lewinter. Hailed as "a perfect little gem" and a "concise, smart, and funny [novel that] turns Cold War spy cliches on their head," A.J. Lewinter tells the story of an insignificant American scientist whose defection to the Soviet Union becomes a terrifying political chess match of deceit and treachery. Not to be missed!

    Michael Koscielski says: "The Defection of A.J. Lewinter"
    "Droning"
    Overall

    I found the story slow and full of tangents. Some of the social philosophies and spook actions were at times interesting, but I quit listening to it. I found the reader's voice to be a bit droning and character's inflections started sounding the same. The accents were helpful, however, when figuring out who was saying what.

  • The Time Traveler's Wife Part 1

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Wonderful "read", best time travel story I've listened to. Made me want to take the long way to work while listening in the car.

    A History of the Middle Ages is the amazing story of European man in transition. It is a dramatic chronicle of 1,000 years of political, social, and economic transformation beginning with the dissolution of the classical Mediterranean civilization and ending with the first flowering of the Renaissance. It is also the story of two new religions, Christianity and Islam, both of which were destined to dominate the mind of every person in those new civilizations arising in their wake.

    Theresa says: "A Stunning Achievement"
    "dry"
    Overall

    I can't seem to get past the couple of hours, I am finding the book dry and too "scholarly" for a "common" listener. I find myself having to listen much too hard to follow along. The author seems to make assumptions that the reader already studies history.

    T. Philips says: "Refreshing"
    "Interesting perspective, but speculation"
    Overall

    There are some stories in this book that are speculatory at best. Some "facts" are generalized for the sake of a good story. Do some research of your own before making declarations that you know what really happened in history, based on what is said in this book.
