  • Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 21 mins)

    Story
    (1161)

    Best-selling author Mary Roach returns with a new adventure to the invisible realm we carry around inside. Roach takes us down the hatch on an unforgettable tour. The alimentary canal is classic Mary Roach terrain: The questions explored in Gulp are as taboo, in their way, as the cadavers in Stiff and every bit as surreal as the universe of zero gravity explored in Packing for Mars. Why is crunchy food so appealing? Why is it so hard to find words for flavors and smells? Why doesn’t the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before your stomach bursts?

    I don't think so.


    What was most disappointing about Mary Roach’s story?

    Her attempts at humor did not work making the story dull.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader was flat.

  • The Winds of War

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Would you listen to The Winds of War again? Why?

    I may, even though I don't usually repeat something I've read or watched.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kevin did a fantastic job with all of the many languages and characters...no two ever sounded alike!


    What about Kevin Pariseau’s performance did you like?

    Everything!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and cry. Also it taught me so much about WW II and the Holocaust that I hadn't known, while being completely entertaining.

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Would you consider the audio edition of War and Remembrance to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, because Kevin brought all the characters to life!


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Pariseau’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kevin is the best reader of all of the books I have listened to. He deserves an award!


    If you could take any character from War and Remembrance out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    FDR or Aaron Jastrow were the most engaging and intelligent!
