  • The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History

    Story
    (628)

    No disease the world has ever known even remotely resembles the great influenza epidemic of 1918. Presumed to have begun when sick farm animals infected soldiers in Kansas, spreading and mutating into a lethal strain as troops carried it to Europe, it exploded across the world with unequaled ferocity and speed. It killed more people in 20 weeks than AIDS has killed in 20 years; it killed more people in a year than the plagues of the Middle Ages killed in a century.

    "The Great Infulenza"
    Overall

    Excellent, absolutely excellent. It is both informative and frightening. Great information on the development of medical science in America, the biology of a disease, the stupidity & ignorance of politicians and what can happen if we are not careful; all rolled into a novel that is easily understood. Recommended for all and guaranteed to scare you.

    Now here at last, is McCourt's long-awaited audiobook about how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer. Teacher Man is also an urgent tribute to teachers everywhere. In bold and spirited prose featuring his irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty, McCourt records the trials, triumphs, and surprises he faces in public high schools around New York City.

    You had a lousy childhood, get over it. Too bad I had to listen to it.

    A User says: "Great Listen"
    "Engrossing and original"
    Overall

    One of the most original stories I have read in a millennium. With the opening chapter I was engrossed and did not stop listening until I had listened to all three novels currently out on Audible. Highly, highly recommended to any fan of Sci-fi. May the story never end.
