    Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

    An exciting story told in all it's detail. If you liked Unbroken, as pretty much everyone did, you can expect a similar pleasure.

  • The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

    One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain inspired a literary revolution. The novel offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore the moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal; he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization".

    What would have made The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn better?

    The story is excellent. Narrator Patrick Fraley just read too blame fast. It's a book full of southern characters, but they barrel along like their late for their plane or something.


    What didn’t you like about Patrick Fraley’s performance?

    Narrator Patrick Fraley just read too blame fast. It's a book full of southern characters, but they barrel along like their late for their plane or something.
    Thought the voices were good, in general, Pap sounds lisps and whispers. He doesn't come off as menacing.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy the version w/ Dick Hlll as reader. It doesn't have the Raftsman's Passage, but with this Fraley recording I got so disgusted that I stopped listening during Jim and Huck's argument about why Frenchmen don't speak English, so I never heard it performed anyway.

  • Winesburg, Ohio

    Story
    (10)

    Winesburg, Ohio has the most memorable cast of characters in 20th-century fiction. Listeners will remember at least a few stories and their characters for the rest of their lives. Each of the 23 stories stands on its own. And each is also interwoven into the fabric of the book.

    Jacob says: "Hilariously bad"
    "Poor Reader"
    Overall

    The reader pauses in the middle of his sentences and present an awkward presentation. It is irritating and doesn't seem necessary given all the fine voice talent that is available.
