  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "Fantastic!"
    Overall

    A well written and well researched book about a most incredible humanitarian and scientist. Narration by Edward Hermann was fitting and articulate for this biography. It was an informative listen that had me shaking my head repeatedly at how Einstein was often misrepresented in history and how, the American government in the McCarthy Era berated such a great citizen. Well worth your time investment to give this one a listen, especially if you have an interest in the gentle man behind the genius.

    Story

    It is 1998, the year in which America is whipped into a frenzy of prurience by the impeachment of a president, and in a small New England town, an aging classics professor, Coleman Silk, is forced to retire when his colleagues decree that he is a racist. The charge is a lie, but the real truth about Silk would have astonished his most virulent accuser. Browse other Philip Roth on audible.com.

    "Captivating"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story and narration. I had not read Philip Roth before and found this book full of twists and turns that weaves an interesting tale.

    Lily Owens has shaped her entire life around one devastating memory - the day her mother was killed. When she and her "stand-in-mother," a fierce-hearted black woman named Rosaleen, are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily enters a secret world of bees and honey, and of the Black Madonna who presides over this household of strong, wise women.

    France says: "Secret Life of Bees"
    "Great story with the perfect voice to tell it."
    Overall

    Not only was this a wonderful story, the narration was fabulous. Her voice made the characters and the story come alive. I could not stop listening! probably one of my favorite "reads".

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "A delightful surprise"
    Overall

    The characters in this audiobook fascinated and engaged me. I did not know quite what to expect after listening to the sound byte but I am glad I took a chance on this wonderful book. Ron McLarty created a travel log with this very likeable, simple and unusual character under some very unusual circumstances. Each encounter he has along the way developed a deeper understanding of Smithy. The complexity of what seems on the surface to be an "ordinary guy" is revealed in each surprising relationship he develops on his quest.I found myself wanting to know how this story ends and not wanting it to end at the same time.
