    This magisterial collection of short works by Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner reminds listeners of his ability to compress his epic vision into narratives as hard and wounding as bullets. Among the 42 selections in this audiobook are such classics as "A Bear Hunt", "A Rose for Emily", "Two Soldiers", and "The Brooch".

    Overall

    I really liked the narration, different people make the stories sound more lively. Also, i have tried to read/listen to Faulkners novels and could quite pick my way through the. The short stories are a nice compromise, maybe now that I am used to his manner, i will be able to enjoy the longer genre.

    Thank you very much Audible!

  • Memory: A Miles Vorkosigan Novel

    Dying is easy. Coming back to life is hard. Miles Vorkosigan should know - having done both once already. Thanks to his quick-thinking staff and the artistry of a medical specialist, Miles' first death wasn't his last. But it does take some recovery, a fact he has been reluctant to admit. When he makes the mistake of returning too soon to duty, he finds himself summoned to face the security chief, Simon Illyan. But Miles' worst nightmares about Illyan are nothing compared to Illyan's own nightmares.

    Louis says: "Order of series"
    "Possibly my favorite Miles story"
    Overall

    I love the whole Vorkosigan saga and cant say I dont like any one of the books. But we all have favorites and this one is mine. Yes, its not so action packed as most of the others, but it strikes a meditative, gloomy and very deep note inside me. It is a more adult book than the other to me, although all of the Miles books have concealed (well weaved) ideas which do not come across to everyone.

    Have fun with it, and try to feel the emotions, not only the plot! )

    "Very well written and historically interesting!"
    Overall

    This is a great read, ive had the paperback for a long time, but could never start it, though my friend told me it was his favorite book ) But after downloading,I just could keep my ear off.

    Great semi-fictional, but historically sound book. I adore Blackthorne's love of the sea and the overall clash of european and japanese culture.
