    Now, for the first time in audio, Blackstone presents seven great plays in one volume: Euripides' Medea, Shakespeare's The Tempest, Moliere's The Imaginary Invalid, Dumas' Camille, Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, Shaw's Arms and the Man, and Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. These productions illustrate the development of European drama from ancient times to the threshold of the modern theater.

    S. N. C. Siegel says: "Badly Done Plays"
    "Drama queen!"
    Overall

    Great slice of drama, presented chronologically and in well-executed dramatizations. F. Murray Abraham is not to be missed.

    This performance was recorded at the Tricycle Theatre, London, during Robert Newman's sell-out run of dates in 2005.

    Andrew says: "Nabokov, Neruda, Newman."
    "Nabokov, Neruda, Newman."
    Overall

    To find a way to rate this album, I first had to develop a new idea of how funny reality can be. Robert's obviously deep concern for the topics at hand is clear to the listener and forms the backbone of an illuminating, "oh my god you got me there" comedy routine. Buy it to laugh, listen again to learn.

  • Sails on the Horizon: A Novel of the Napoleonic Wars

    With his first historical high-seas adventure chronicling the exploits of Naval Commander Charles Edgemont, Jay Worrall sets sail in the rousing tradition of C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian.

    Andrew says: "Muster and Commandeer"
    "Muster and Commandeer"
    Overall

    Not Patrick O'Brian... in a very good way. All of the naval action and concise rigors, condensed and crafted into a readable, enjoyable tale. A bit too "all's well" in the denouement... no lingering loose ends to keep one's excitement high for the next installment, yet such thoroughly enjoyable characters as to at least ensure interest. Well-read, good production.
