    Mark Twain's engaging novel about Tom Sawyer, a young, mischievous boy with a nose for trouble and a heart of gold. One of the most enduring American novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a jaunty, free-wheeling story that exemplifies the life of a young boy on the frontier in the mid 1800s.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had to speed up the rate at which this book was read, the narrator was painfully slow


    What didn’t you like about Matt Armstrong’s performance?

    Very slow and uncharacteristic of the story's youthful content

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Any additional comments?

    I just kept saying to myself ... really? no way that is happening...... Just a bunch of airhead women in this book with very little backbone.

    In 1918, after four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia to take a job as the lighthouse keeper on remote Janus Rock. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes only four times a year and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel.

    Sandra says: "Wonderful story.....terrible narrator."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and no - the story was really wonderful - the twists and turns the book took were representative of the realistic consequences of the actions taken by the characters. However the narrator was really challenging to understand!


    What didn’t you like about Noah Taylor’s performance?

    The narrator spoke so quietly in some of the narration that the combination of lower volume and his accent made it almost impossible to understand what he was saying.

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    Joshua Kim says: "Valuable"
    "Comprehensive and thought provoking"
    Overall

    Great analysis of the "free" business models both online and offline. Must read for any business owner.
