    For decades, people have tried to persuade the leader of the Cuban Revolution to tell his own life story. Ignacio Ramonet, the celebrated editor in chief of Le Monde diplomatique, has finally succeeded. For the first time, in a series of extensive and probing interviews, Fidel Castro describes his life from the 1950s to the present day.

    Roy says: "In His Own Words"
    "Great story, not so great narration"

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator for Castro's voice could not pronounce many of the Spanish words which was a bit annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed it. Very informative.

  • A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Ryan says: "Enjoyable, but a lot of setup"

    Was A Dance with Dragons worth the listening time?

    It just goes on and on and on without going anywhere. New characters to remember, great old ones pushed to the wayside. I bought this book just to be able to finish the series hoping in vain that all the lose ends from the previous 4 books would get tied up and make sense. I'm not even finished listening to this one and I feel that getting through the final 2 chapters will be a chore.
    Didn't anyone bother to edit this?

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Alisha says: "Good listen, but what's up with the chapter set up"
    "Disappointing, but you'll buy it anyway"

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roy Dotrice?

    I don't understand why the narrator didn't go back and study the voices he used in the previous books.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed. Too many new characters. Some of the great characters used in the previous books are sent to the wayside.
