    Story
    (252)

    In this riveting and surprising personal history, John Lithgow shares a backstage view of his own struggle, crisis, and discovery, revealing the early life and career that took place out of the public eye. Above all Lithgow’s memoir is a tribute to his most important influence: his father, Arthur Lithgow, who, as an actor, director, producer, and great lover of Shakespeare, brought theater to John’s boyhood. From bedtime stories to Arthur’s illustrious productions, performance and storytelling were constant and cherished parts of family life.

    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    It's an engaging and entertaining story that is well told. I think it's possibly more enjoyable in audio form than it would be written.

  • Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

    Story
    (1361)

    On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war.

    Amazon Customer says: "Beautiful, Heartbreaking, and Informative"
    "Fabulous in depth exploration of Lincoln's life."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Usually authors are unable to fully elaborate the supporting characters in a story. In this case, you come to understand the depths of motivation and character of a sizable number of people who influenced Lincoln's political and personal life. This of course means that the book is exceptionally lengthy. And I am enjoying all of it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, in numerous places.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not usually a reader of histories. But I am enjoying this one thoroughly.

    Story
    (1849)

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    Yes. He rolls out the story so skillfully, and reveals the details in the end.
