  • Teller of Tales: The Life of Arthur Conan Doyle

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 21 mins)

    • Narrated By Richard Matthews

    This compelling biography examines the extraordinary life and strange contrasts of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the struggling provincial doctor who became the most popular storyteller of his age when he created Sherlock Holmes. From his youthful exploits aboard a whaling ship to his often stormy friendships with such figures as Harry Houdini and George Bernard Shaw, Conan Doyle lived a life as gripping as any of his adventures.

    GoryDetails says: "A lively, enjoyable look at Conan Doyle"
    "Enjoyable, personal human history on Conan Doyle"
    Overall

    A well-presented audio-biography showing Conan Doyle's pioneering history as writer. This should be of interest to a wide variety of readers/listeners and would-be authors - esp.those in the field of specific, clear observation in detection.

  • On Angels: A Story from Sixty Stories

    • UNABRIDGED (7 mins)

    Story
    (15)

    With these audacious and murderously witty stories, Donald Barthelme threw the preoccupations of our time into the literary equivalent of a Cuisinart and served up a gorgeous salad of American culture, high and low. Here are the urban upheavals reimagined as frontier myth; travelogues through countries that might have been created by Kafka; cryptic dialogues that bore down to the bedrock of our longings, dreams, and angsts.

    W says: ""On Angels: A Story from Sixty Stories""
    "Poor fiction - needs better research."
    Overall

    Even fiction needs to be properly researched to show at least some, even just a little, basis in facts. This story on angels makes too little sense and, for me, I'll not take a chance on the rest of the 59 stories in this audiobook.
