  • A Wizard of Earthsea

    This first volume of the Earthsea Cycle is an adventure story, a Quest, a tale of a proud, incautious boy who meddles too early with the Dark. It is a pure fantasy telling about a real thing: a boy coming into his power and his manhood...coming of age.

    Wyonia says: "Great Book...Frantic Narrator"
    "I'd Like to Honor the Narrator"
    Overall

    I was quite surprised at how many critics posted remarks regarding this tale's narration. Myself and my children have loved this story for over 2 decades, and we all found the excitement conveyed by the narrator Harlan Ellison to be well placed and adds to our enjoyment of this wonderful story. The fact that Ursula Le Guin choose him, and melds her voice with his in the beginning and the end, speaks highly that Harlan Ellison has spoken her tale as it ought to be enjoyed -with passion.

    For every man who always wondered why some guys have all the luck, Mystery, considered by many to be the world's greatest pickup artist, finally reveals his secrets for finding and forming relationships with some of the world's most beautiful women. Mystery gained mainstream attention for his role in Neil Strauss' New York Times best-selling expose The Game. Now he has written the definitive handbook on the art of the pickup.

    "Interesting to Listen to as a Woman"
    Overall

    I decided before I re-enter the "dating" world at 45, I'd like a peek into a man's mind of what he's thinking when he's practicing his "game" out in the "field". This book has given me great laughs and some intereting tips to share with my good friends on how to enjoy the dating game. I recommend it as a light listen to women who want to know more about possibly why they are attracted to certain men, and not others. This book is not intended for women - but if the "game" is about catching me, as a woman I want to know the rules you think I'll play by. Very interesting - don't agree with it all, but a real eye opener.

    Story
    (11)

    When Edward Enfield decided to cycle around Ireland, he was enchanted by prehistoric fortresses, rugged landscapes, and landladies who insisted on washing his shirts. He takes you with him on a gentle ride up the west coast, eating fresh fish and enormous breakfasts along the way, and stopping to chat to peat-cutters, fishermen, eccentric tourists, and a famous matchmaker.

    MillenniumMike says: "Very charming, informative & entertaining narative"
    "Travel through Ireland narrated by the author"
    Overall

    I am getting ready to travel to Ireland for the first time, and I have enormously enjoyed listening to this book - which I have done multiple times. An excellent choice for anyone who intends a visit, especially for the first time.

  • The Botany of Desire

    Story

    Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers' genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship.

    Teddy says: "If you have an open mind... Give it a listen"
    "Amazing Listen - Thoroughly Satisfying"
    Overall

    I realized my teenage children and I have listened to various parts of this book a dozen times already. Time to write a Review! Recommended to us by their high school teacher, this book discusses the history, science, and more regarding the apple, the lily, weed, and the potato. Don't miss this book - it is well read and not only very informative but a great story as well.

    As women everywhere will attest, when it comes to understanding female sexuality, most guys know more about what's under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris. And while it seems that men have struggled valiantly since the dawn of time to find ways to reliably elicit the female orgasm, rare is the guy who has the modesty to ask: "What do I do?" Ironically, the answer has always been right there on the tip of his tongue.

    Adam says: "Really Good for What It's For"
    "Wow-A Must Read for Women & Men"
    Overall

    She Comes First should be used as a mandatory sex education class for Freshmen college students. Parents should listen/read this book so they better know how to talk to their children regarding family sex education. This book clearly and calmly walks the reader through old-miss information to what science has confirmed regarding human sexuality. As a woman I now have a "definition of terms" creating a scientifically based frame work to understand my own sexual experiences. I can't thank the author enough for this gift of knowledge. As a woman, I have been embarrassed for how long it takes me to orgasm. Now I understand that myself and my lovers simply lacked a proper understanding of the stages of arousal, climax, and return to a pre-arousal state that most women experience. And understanding the brain chemistry as to why men sleep after sex is liberating for both men & women. Whether or not you enjoy oral sex, reading this book makes you feel more comfortable about your own unique journey to experience bliss through sex. Woman are in the process of reclaiming our unique feminine energy and this book goes a long way to giving women confidence to relax and enjoy themselves and gives men what they have always wanted - terms & explanations to understand What Woman Want (Need). Thank you.
