  • Atlas Shrugged

    Story
    (421)

    As passionate as it is profound, Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential novels of our time. In it, Rand dramatizes the main tenets of Objectivism, her philosophy of rational selfishness. She explores the ramifications of her radical thinking in a world that penalizes human intelligence and integrity.

    Shawn Levasseur says: "Edward Hermann's masterful performance."
    "Too long & too boring."

    Story
    (556)

    Vikas Swarup's spectacular debut novel, the inspiration for the award-winning film, opens in a jail cell in Mumbai, where Ram Mohammad Thomas is being held after correctly answering all 12 questions on India's biggest quiz show, Who Will Win a Billion? It is hard to believe that a poor orphan who has never gone to school could win such a contest. But through a series of exhilarating tales, Ram explains to his lawyer how episodes in his life gave him the answer to each question.

    J. Wigfall says: "Powerful"
    "Better than the movie!"

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 18 mins)

    Story
    (5415)

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    "Didn't think I'd like it!"

    Would you listen to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter again? Why?

    Yes! Of course there are no vampires, but maybe Lincoln really believed in them! Very entertaining!


    What does Scott Holst bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The honesty of Lincoln. He made me feel that this could actually have been history!
