    Story
    (181)

    Rand's Protagonist, Equality 7-2521, describes a surreal world of faceless, nameless drones who "exist through, by and for our brothers who are the State. Amen." Alone, this daring young man defies the will of the ruling councils and discovers the forbidden freedoms that prevailed during the Unmentionable Times. In other words, he finds and celebrates the power of the self. In doing so, he becomes the prototypical Rand hero, a bold risk-taker who shuns conformity and unabashedly embraces egoism.

    Steve says: "Great Narration"
    "Anthem - Classic story"
    Overall

    Anthem is a classic story. I have previously read the book but I must say that the narrator made all the difference in the world. You "felt" every emotion that the main character felt.

    I would highly recommend this story and this narrator.

    Story
    (230)

    With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

    "Good Author Bad Reader"
    Overall

    I've been a fan of Nora's for years. I would have rather read this book than listened to it. The person reading it was terrible. Way too slow, no inflection in her voice. She made what would have been a fun, insightful book into a bore to listen to.
