    In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Ames's life, he begins a letter to his young son, an account of himself and his forebears. Ames is the son of an Iowan preacher and the grandson of a minister who, as a young man in Maine, saw a vision of Christ bound in chains and came west to Kansas to fight for abolition: He "preached men into the Civil War", then, at age 50, became a chaplain in the Union Army, losing his right eye in battle.

    Jim says: "The wonder of retrospect"
    "A nice read"
    Overall

    A nicely written, and narrated novel. The tempo I quite slow, but I found my self interested in the small and big thing In his life. Religion is a big part of the book and can be a bit to much for a godless European. It didn?t bather me to mush.

  • A History of the Roman Republic, Volume 1

    The story of the Roman Republic is the greatest epic in human history. Seen in the long perspective of time, it seems too fantastic to be real. From its modest beginnings as a convenient fording place on the Tiber to its eventual destiny as the mistress of the Mediterranean, Rome offers a strange tale of fate, sacrifice, and indomitable willpower. The stern realities of war shaped its policies from the very beginning.

    Robert says: "A splendid read!"
    "He dont like the greeks"
    Overall

    An easy to understand and well told history of Rome. The narrator is very British, but it didn’t bother me much. The authors claim that Hellenism ruins the Roman republic is farfetched, he is talking about the greeks contaminating the roman blood!

    Four classic BBC TV episodes featuring a newly-added interview with John Cleese.

    Donald says: "The Greatest !"
    "No pictures"
    Overall

    Even though it is a TV series, it is still very funny. Maybe it is because you remember the pictures when your hear the sound. I did anyway.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    Story
    (330)

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I hoped that the book showed some insight in American politics. But in the hour I listen it was only boring bashing of right wing commentators. Avoid this unless you are a liberal fanboy, everybody else should find something more serious.

  • A Walk in the Woods

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    Jeff says: "Wonderful book, but hardly abridged"
    "Just for Americans"
    Overall

    It is not a bad book, but i did not find it that funny. I think you have to be a American to fully appreciate it.
