    The best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse.

    Valerian says: "This is not unabridged"
    "Audiobook experience at the highest level"
    Overall

    This always remarkable book comes alive with this reading. I love audio books for their convenience and I get through many more books in audio format than I do with physical books. Comparing what I get from sitting in a chair reading to listening to a book generally is a toss up for me often with reading the book getting a slight edge. But once in a while the audio format far exceeds the page turning experience. This book is a perfect example of how well audio books can be done.

  • The Great Gatsby

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 44 mins)

    (924)

    The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's portrait of the Jazz Age in all its decadence and excess, is, as editor Maxwell Perkins praised it in 1924, "a wonder". It remains one of the most widely read, translated, admired, imitated, and studied 20th-century works of American fiction.

    Redhawk Readers says: "Something you won't fall asleep to..."

    Overall

    The debate over text to speech being anything similar to a "performance" (as the law is attempting to distinguish) is completely put to rest here. If you have only seen the movie then you owe it to yourself to find out the complete story and the complete character(s) of Gatsby. The performance brings this book to life. One of the best readings of any book I have heard (out of hundreds). Tim Robbins, not usually a favorite of mine, is perfect. A genuinely subtle and penetrating reading of Gatsby. Voices for each character that are spot on. So often narrators changing voices draws too much attention to itself. Not here. Highly recommended.

  • The French Revolution: 1789 - 1799

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 30 mins)

    Story
    (6)

    In 1789 a group of sober-minded, concerned citizens set in motion a series of events which were to end up leading to the deaths of thousands of perfectly innocent persons. How did this reasonable movement of level-headed civic leaders spin out of control? At a glance, the French Revolution appears a bewildering series of political factions sweeping in and out of power, massacre and counter-massacre, terror and guillotine, and one economic crisis following another.

    Larry says: "A good overview"
    "Ponderous"
    Overall

    History in sloooow motion. Pretentious reading weighs down a great subject.
