  • Gandhi & Churchill

    • UNABRIDGED (29 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Arthur Herman
    • Narrated By John Curless
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In this fast-paced epic, best-selling historian and master storyteller Arthur Herman spotlights two giants of the 20th century. Gandhi & Churchill shows how their 40-year rivalry revolutionized India and the British Empire, paving the way for a new era. Gandhi championed India's independence, Churchill the British Empire.

    David says: "A motif that works well"
    "Detailed, Honest Biography"

    This is a good biography of two of the most influential, yet misunderstood men of the last century.Years ago, I was suprised to find that many Indians do not think Gahndi was a hero or even a great leader. This book goes into the detail that is sorely missing from everything else I have read about Gahndi.
    Churchill too is often revered as a great leader. This book helps to delineate the man from the myth by detailing his personal and professional flaws.
    Overall a very good biography, the book contrasts their early lives and how they eventually became the great me history portrays them. A must read for the 20th century history buff!

  • Saint Patrick: Pioneer Missionary to Ireland

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 25 mins)
    • By Michael J. McHugh
    • Narrated By Fred Williams

    This biography seeks to vividly portray the true story of Saint Patrick and to encourage 21st-century Christians to be faithful to the great commission of Christ to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."

    Sean says: "Author falls into typical 20th Century revisionism"
    "Written for children"

    This book is obviously written for children, more precisely small children. Therefore most people will find it too simplistic. It reads like a school book.I really wish someone would have told me this before I purchased this book.It should have been mentioned in the publisher's review, but it is not. I guess that's the risk of purchasing audiobooks online. It is a good book, but not at all what I was expecting.

  • Behind the Wheel - Portuguese

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Mark Frobose

    Behind the Wheel Portuguese 1 covers beginning to intermediate level standard Portuguese, with an emphasis on Brazilian Portuguese. The course provides a flexible, solid and universal foundation in speaking, understanding, and creatively expressing yourself in Brazilian Portuguese and features an English speaking instructor to guide you through the lessons and a native speaker to aid with your pronunciation.

    Francis says: "Great for learning Brazilian Portuguese!!"
    "Great for learning Brazilian Portuguese!!"

    This audiobook is one of the better ones I have purchased over the last couple of years. Good audio quality. The native speaker has a clear Brazilian accent. There are pauses after the speaker, so you can try the word or phrase yourself. Then the word or phrase is repeated, so you can evaluate your pronunciation. Definitely worth the time and money.
