  • The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design

    The Blind Watchmaker, knowledgably narrated by author Richard Dawkins, is as prescient and timely a book as ever. The watchmaker belongs to the 18th-century theologian William Paley, who argued that just as a watch is too complicated and functional to have sprung into existence by accident, so too must all living things, with their far greater complexity, be purposefully designed. Charles Darwin's brilliant discovery challenged the creationist arguments; but only Richard Dawkins could have written this elegant riposte.

    Story

    I have read the God Delusion and The Greatest Show on Earth. Professor Dawkins referenced this book and I wanted to listen to it on my commutes to work to further my understanding of evolution. This work has great information and good flow. I usually don't like when there is more then one narrator but this works out very well as there are times he is quoting something and then the narrator switches. This makes it easier to know this is occurring when you hear the voice change. Both narrators are wonderful to listen to.

    In December, 1999, a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who, or what, is out there?

    The only thing I can say bad about this work is that it's abridged. Carl Sagan is my hero so I can't say anything bad about the man. This book is awesome and I loved Jodie Fosters performance at times it was hard to follow certain characters but she does a great job.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    The Narrator did a fantastic job in my opinion. Really made it come alive for me. The story itself was alot of fun for me. King + Zombies = WIN. Some will love ending some will not. I loved it.

    The second Dune installment explores new developments on the planet Arrakis, with its intricate social order and strange, threatening environment. Dune Messiah picks up the story of the man known as Muad'Dib, heir to a power unimaginable, bringing to fruition an ambition of unparalleled scale: the centuries-old scheme to create a superbeing who reigns not in the heavens but among men. But the question is: DO all paths of glory lead to the grave?

    Story

    I absolutely loved book one on Audible. All of the actors and sounds really took this book to a new level. Unfortunately I can't say the same about "Dune Messiah" the story itself was lack luster in comparison to book 1 and the reading approach was not to my liking. As others have reviewed. The acting approach all went out the window. Instead they had different narrators take turns on different chapters. I know I would have enjoyed this book more if 1 narrator was reading. But because it was different ones it really took me out of the story and I was frankly tired when i finished. Frankly this is first time I have been so disappointed in an audio recording. Id give 3 stars because I felt all the narrators did a good job, but I'll give 2 stars for overall story and this disjointed narration style.

    Stephen King's second novel, Salem's Lot, is the story of a mundane town under siege from the forces of darkness. Considered one of the most terrifying vampire novels ever written, it cunningly probes the shadows of the human heart and the insular evils of small-town America.

    Story

    I'm fairly new to Stephen King. Having loved the Dark Tower series I thought I would read other DT related books. All so far have been awesome! Especially Insomnia. I picked up Salem's Lot, always having heard of it but never actually reading it. I knew it was a classic but I thought It would be outdated. I read this during halloween season so the timing was perfect and yes it gave me a few bad dreams haha. All in all this book is a classic and a fun read. It was neat to see what things were going on in the 70's. Neat to see how times change but our nature doesn't really.

    A dark and sweeping adventure, Dreamcatcher is set in the haunted city of Derry - the site of Stephen King's It and Insomnia. In it, four young boys stand together and do a brave, good thing, an act that changes them in ways that they hardly understand. A quarter-century later, as grown men who have gone their separate ways, these friends come together once a year to hunt in the woods of Maine.
