    Labeled variously a realistic story of whaling, a romance of unusual adventure and eccentric characters, a symbolic allegory, and a drama of heroic conflict, Moby Dick is first and foremost a great story. It has both the humor and poignancy of a simple sea ballad, as well as the depth and universality of a grand odyssey.

    One of the most important and poetic novels of the nineteenth century, this is also one of the best audiobooks I have encountered. Worth every penny.

  • John Keats: Poems

    Born in 1795, tragically dead of consumption by age 26, John Keats was one of the greatest English Romantic poets. During his brief life, he composed many poems and odes that are considered among the finest and most passionate ever written. Lush, sensuous, rhythmic, and surprising, they captivate the senses and fascinate the mind.

    Story

    I'm a big fan of Keats and this audiobook is the reason why - first purchased in the early nineties, I have listened to this incredible collection of poems hundreds of times - all the greats are here from Ode to a Nightengale, Ode to a Grecian Urn, Isabella, La Belle Damme sans Merci and Eve of St. Agnes - although the book is labelled "abridged," the only abridgement is Endymion - a must have for any lover of the romantic poets and Keats in particular - beautifully narrated, too

    One of the most distinctive periods in English poetry was the age of Romanticism, a movement which rebelled against the neoclassical forms and celebrated the imagination as a spiritual force

    Story

    Keats is one of the greatest English poets and here is very well read. The title Selected Poems is a bit misleading, however, as the text consists of a handful of poems and the full text of his unfinished work Hyperion. Many many great Keats poems are missing. Still, a good book for a great price.

  • Tess of the d'Urbervilles

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 44 mins)

    Socially critical and emotionally complex, Tess of the d'Urbervilles is Hardy's masterpiece. It tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, forced by her family's poverty to claim kinship with the wealthy d'Urbervilles. Violated by the son, Alec, her hopes of rebuilding her life with the gentle and bookish Angel Clare founder when he learns of her past.

    Story

    This is one of the best nineteenth century English novels and very well done but I really would have preferred a straight reading, without the silly voices
