    It was January 2021, and Rick Deckard had a license to kill. Somewhere among the hordes of humans out there lurked several rogue androids. Deckard's assignment: find them and then..."retire" them. Trouble was, the androids all looked exactly like humans, and they didn't want to be found!

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    If you were born before 1960, the hopelessness and futility makes perfect sense. Given the tools he had, what a wonderful statement. I loved it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Expect a broken heart. That's what we all waited for.

    The Koran: It may be the most controversial book in the world. Some see it as a paean to peace, others call it a violent mandate for worldwide Islamic supremacy. How can one book lead to such dramatically different conclusions?

    Would you listen to The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran again? Why?

    No. It's a book that's very clear on the authors stance. All points are clear as a bell.


    Would you recommend The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran to your friends? Why or why not?

    I knew nothing of the Koran before I got this book. I need another viewpoint before I can recommend it.


    What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

    outstanding.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    History for busy people. Nazi Germany, or the Third Reich, was a totalitarian dictatorship ruled by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party. Hitler was intent on the supremacy of the Aryan race and persecution of the Jews, which affected every citizen living in Germany at the time. Learn just how and why the Nazi’s rose to power in just one hour.
