    It is 1951 in America, the second year of the Korean War. Marcus Messner of Newark, New Jersey, is beginning his sophomore year at the pastoral, conservative Winesburg College in Ohio. Why is he here? Because his father, a hard-working neighborhood butcher, seems to have gone mad.

    JOHN says: "Brilliant"
    "Great Narrator, good read despite flat ending."
    Overall

    This is about the most superbly narrated book I've heard in a long time. The narrator made the characters come to life, and the story was great, engrossingly complex, unique and captivating, like most of Roth's novels. But the ending fatally weakened the story. It seemed incomplete. As if Roth was in a rush. Still I gave it four stars because I could not stop listening for most of it and though the conclusion was imperfect it made me want to hear more.

    Renowned psychiatrist and educator Armand Nicholi presents a fascinating comparison of the beliefs of Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis. For all the variety of specific religious beliefs, there are fundamentally only two kinds of people: believers and nonbelievers.

    Mindy says: "A perfect argument"
    "The Question of God (Unabridged)"
    Overall

    Generally too long, but interesting, particularly on Freud's life, which was very engaging considering that he is far more influential than CS Lewis. I agree with an a previous review: there is a clear bias or affirmation of Lewis'"conversion" from atheist to worldly view without any cogent explanation, other than it happening suddenly while Lewis was on a motorcycle when Lewis was in his early thirties. If anything the book makes the case that Lewis fits Freud's profile of those who believe for psychological compensation,nothing more, and in that sense that Freud was correct.
