    In this series of lectures, professor Eric H. Cline delves into the history of ancient Greece, frequently considered to be the founding nation of democracy in Western civilization. Ancient Greece lives on in modern culture, evidenced by an ever-present fascination with the tales of Homer, Greek drama, and the stories associated with Greek mythology. In the rise of Sparta and Athens, people today find a wealth of material for understanding not only ancient Greece, but the modern world.

    David says: "Excellent survey"
    "Extremely informative"
    Overall

    This series of lectures is extremely informative and enjoyable. A detailed overview of Greek history it is a very good introduction to the ancient Greeks. If you already have a working knowledge of Greek history it's a pretty good review if you don't it's an even better place to start. Well worth the time and money. I'd buy it again.

    In this, the first novel of the best-selling Incarnations of Immortality series, Piers Anthony combines a deeply moving examination of the meaning of life and death with a gripping story of romance and loyalty, all set in a world of magic and technical wizardry.

    "My name is different every month: Brandy, Honey, Amy. Sometimes Joe doesn't even bother to ask, but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I'm called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing....My real name is Sadie, and once a month, over lunch, Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn't know is that, in my mind, I'm the star of every one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I'm practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life."

    There's a fine line between art and pornography this book definitely crossed it. The plot in this book was a thin excuse for the actions of its characters. In many places it insults the intelligence of the reader. I wouldn't buy this book again. Indeed I regret listening to it the first time.

    Of all the civilizations that have ever existed, none have inspired as much wonder and awe as Ancient Rome. No society has replicated the achievements nor enjoyed the longevity that the Roman Empire did. This course explores the world of Ancient Rome as students investigate important events and key figures of the epoch. At the end of this course, students will possess a thorough understanding of Ancient Rome's legacy to the modern world.

    A quick overview of Roman history this series of lectures was absolutely fascinating. The professor did a wonderful job of presenting the material in an informative and humorous manner. I've listened to it several times since its purchase and would buy it all over again.

    In this course, Professor Lawrence H. Schiffman imparts a clear understanding of what the Dead Sea Scrolls are, and even more importantly, what they are not. Indeed, everything about the Scrolls, from their long road to full publication to the haggling over dating and translation, has been shrouded in controversy. In these lectures, Professor Schiffman gives a fascinating explanation of the content of the Scrolls and the times in which the Scrolls were kept.

    Jacobus says: "A well-balanced account of the Qumran Scrolls"
    "Not too bad"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this series of lectures even if biblical scholarship is not one of my main interests. It helps if you have a little Old Testament understanding when listening to these lectures. This book was worth the money but I'm not sure I would buy it twice.

    The Trojan War, captured forever in Homer's epic poem the Iliad, resonates to the present day in the popular imagination. But did Troy actually exist? And if so, where is it located? Was the Trojan War actually fought? And why? In this course, professor Eric H. Cline examines the history of Troy and delves into the archaeological discoveries that help to answer the questions above. Through an incisive analysis of known data, Professor Cline provides a fuller, richer understanding of this historic clash.

    In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery - a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog.

    "Better than her last."
    Overall

    After her last book I was afraid this author was written out that the well was dry. How glad I was to find out that I was wrong. This book has all the depth and power of her early work and was well worth the money and time the reader will invest. I buy this book again.

    Who stole one of Egypt's most priceless treasures? That is the question that haunts the authorities after a distinguished British gentleman with an upper-crust accent cons his way past a security guard and escapes into the desert carrying a world-famous, one-of-a-kind historic relic. But the Egyptian authorities and Interpol believe they know the identity of the culprit.

    After too long of an absence Elizabeth peters returns us to the world of everyone's favorite art historian Dr. Bliss. If you enjoyed her earlier books you will love this one. It is full of all the stock characters we've come to know and love. Elizabeth brings us breakneck adventure and intrigue without insulting our intelligence. I can recommend without any hesitation that others buy this book.

    Controversial author and scholar David Etheridge is not the kind of company an aspiring politician wants to keep. But ambitious senator Robert McCrutchen has a history with Etheridge that he's desperately trying to keep under wraps: 22 years ago, both men were investigated in the still-unsolved death of a young coed.

    Gene says: "Really slow"
    "I can not believe I listened to all of this book"
    Overall

    This book was awful with occasional flashes of adequacy. The story seemed forced,the dialogue was flat, and the characters were barely believable. I won't buy another book by this author.
