  • Revenge of the Whale: The True Story of the Whaleship Essex

    Can a whale attack a ship? The shipwrecked crew of the whaleship Essex was living proof that it could when a whale displayed a fury never before witnessed, ramming and sinking their vessel in a matter of minutes in November 1820. The story of their survival is one rarely spoken of by Nantucketers even to this day, but National Book Award-winning author Nathaniel Philbrick courageously brings every shocking detail into the light.

    Mark says: "So great I want to hear the longer version."
    "One of the best books I've listened to."
    Overall

    This book is one of the best Ive heard on audible. It gives a complete picture of whaling in general and keeps you riveted until the last word. I highly recommend you give it a listen.

    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier, and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. It's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    Francis says: "Awesome"
    "Not that funny"
    Overall

    Sorry George but this isnt very funny. There were a couple laughs hidden here and there but pretty dumb overall..

  • Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

    Story

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    Matthew says: "Darn funny if you're open to the idea."
    "Not for the sensitive..."
    Overall

    This was a pretty good book. Its definitely not for anyone who is sensitive talking about dead bodies. Apparently Im one of those people because I really had to force myself to finish this book. It does a good job overall however.

    Charles Stembridge says: "Narrator"
    "Pretty good but not great"
    Overall

    I'm mostly done with it now and heres what I think. Its a pretty good book. Very interesting subject matter but he seems to have done very little with it. Everyhting is very straightforward. really simple. The narrator is great EXCEPT....for his voices..they are just awful! I wish he would have just read the lines without doing the voices. I got tired of his Merrick/Schwarzeneggar voice about five minutes in. I dont want to harp on it too bad though, it was pretty good I dont regret listening just dont expect loads of depth.

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Brent says: "This audio edition is abridged!"
    "Great book!"
    Overall

    This is a really good book. It really does touch on nearly every area of science. Great if you just want to brush up on your general science knowledge. I have to echo the earlier comments also, this guy is a great narrator. Never droning or monotonous. I highly recommend this book
