    Story
    (36)

    Stuey Ungar dropped out of high school to become an underground card-table sensation, eventually taking out every top gin-rummy player on the east coast. Bankrolled by the Genovese crime family, Ungar went on to win the World Series of Poker a record three times. Then his luck began to run out.

    "emotionally devastating and well read"
    Overall

    The Stu Ungar story is engaging and compelling from the get-go. I will look for other books read by Joe Barrett - he did an amazing job. Surprisingly the callous, cliched-heart of Vegas is shattered when you hear of players and friends who tried to help Stu Ungar. Over and over it's a desperate emotional roller coaster - the life of a gifted man who went through one bad beat after another. In substance and tragedy It's Goodfellas meets Casino, meets Raging Bull.

  • The Book Thief

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 56 mins)

    Story

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Shannon says: "Word Thief"
    "not just for kids"
    Overall

    well written and full of great quotes - "There's only one thing worse than a boy who hates a girl...A boy who loves a girl" Read by Allan Corduner in a most playful, dramatic, and entertaining tone the listener will not be disappointed. This Markus Zusak can write.... This reviewer only wishes for more.
