  • A Tale of Two Cities

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"; "It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known"; so the novel begins and ends with some of Dicken's best-known words, and between the two is every Briton's view of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.

    "Best made Better"
    Overall

    The reader of this book brings it to life in a way far superior to the written word. It's always been a classic and my favorite, but now it's even better.

    At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, The River of Doubt is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt's harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth.

    "SUPERB!!!"
    Overall

    This is how to make history and historic figures come to life! Well written and well read, it is one of the finer biographies of someone very much underestimated in our day...
