    It is 1793 in France, the year of the guillotine. Already, Louis XVI has been sentenced to the scaffold, and Terror reigns. The architects of the Revolution (Marat, Danton, and Robespierre) have set up the Convention, an embryo parliament, designed to stem social chaos. But ideals topple in the face of political necessity, alliances founder, and intrigue is a way of life.

    This is a great book and well narrated. I'm almost finished listening to it for the second time and am enjoying it even more this time than I did the first time. FIVE STARS!

    I loved this course, but I really wish they would produce Phase 2. Hungarian is a very difficult language, and this audio course makes it much easier.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone looking for a great listen won’t be able to resist Jane Austen’s delightful classic of love and manners in Regency England. Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    What was most disappointing about Jane Austen’s story?

    The story lacked an interesting plot. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, and it never did.

    This book is overrated.

    The Art of Teaching Music takes up important aspects of the art of music teaching ranging from organization to serving as conductor to dealing with the disconnect between the ideal of university teaching and the reality in the classroom. Writing for both established teachers and instructors on the rise, Estelle R. Jorgensen opens a conversation about the life and work of the music teacher.

    What disappointed you about The Art of Teaching Music?

    This is by far the worst book I have ever downloaded. This book is nothing but meaningless blather. I was hoping to learn something, and I kept waiting for the book to get better. It got worse. Here's a tip for the author: have a point!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This book had no redeeming qualities.

  • Blood Feud: The Man Who Blew the Whistle on One of the Deadliest Prescription Drugs Ever

    Blood-boosting Procrit is Johnson & Johnson's biotech superstar. Behind its various brand names, it ranks as Medicare's most reimbursed drug. But Procrit performs frighteningly well, and can stimulate so many blood cells that thousands of patients die in unexplained and painful ways. Blood Feud is award-winning journalist Kathleen Sharp's nail-biting expose of the Procrit case. Packed with corporate espionage, plot twists, and larger-than-life characters, it's as gripping as it is terrifyingly true.

    Would you listen to Blood Feud again? Why?

    I'm planning to listen to it a second time. The fact that the book reads like a biography made it very entertaining. This is a pretty damning indictment of big pharma and the medical industry. The love of money is the root of all evil. I wish more Americans would be aware of the info in this book.

  • The Gulag Archipelago: Volume III: Katorga, Exile, Stalin Is No More

    In this final volume of a towering work that is both literary masterpiece and living memorial to the untold millions of Soviet martyrs, Solzhenitsyn's epic narrative moves to its astounding and unforseen climax. We now see that this great cathedral of a book not only commemorates those massed victims but celebrates the unquenched spirit of resistance that flickered and then burst into flame even in Stalin's "special camps."

    Dr. says: "Great Art smashes Tyranny"
    ""Katorga" is one of the best parts"
    Overall

    The section on Katorga is one of the best parts of the whole book. Some of my favorite chapters are "the committed escaper" and "the white kitten"

    5 stars!!!
