  • The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

    • By Tyler Hamilton, Daniel Coyle
    • Narrated By Sean Runnette

    Story
    (418)

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    Alan says: "Gripping and fascinating"
    "fascinating story, but no fan of Sean Runnette"

    Story
    What did you love best about The Secret Race?

    The detailed accounts of behind the scenes racing, and how they lined up with well known events.


    What didn’t you like about Sean Runnette’s performance?

    He sounds like an old man with a denture problem. Was hard to get used to, a bit distracting the entire book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I listened whenever I could.

  • Infinite Jest

    • UNABRIDGED (56 hrs and 14 mins)

    Story
    (350)

    A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are.

    Charlie R. Williams says: "good if you already read the book."
    "Not for everyone...and yes, no footnotes"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Infinite Jest?

    If they decided not to include footnotes, why the annoying insertion of a female voice saying the footnote number? This book is not unabridged.


    What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the most amazing performer, ever. The narrator is unbelievably talented.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant book, but I would not recommend reading this if you are prone to depression, Although you will laugh at times, this is not a comedy. Its mostly very dark and leaves you feeling like everyone is a misanthrope drug abuser. Also, know what you are getting into - 55 hours of audio book means you'll be investing quite a bit of time fighting off that depression.
