    Downton Abbey has brought out the Anglophile in American fans of the hit TV series. But Anglophilia has a long history in America. Why are some native-born residents of our Shining City Upon a Hill, where All Men Are Created Equal, seduced by the fluting tones of manor-born privilege? At last, Anglophilia explained - in American, thank you.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Story

    Well I haven't listened to book 1 but I sure will.
    This is a great great book.
    The narration is a great match for the character and the story is captivating.
    The only bad thing I can say is that this book has many many characters and I has some trouble keeping up with who is who.
    Also at some point I felt as though the the descriptions of things were much too much descriptive and I would just wish that the main character would get to the point.
    BUT
    The amazing story just squashes all of these little problems and give the reader an amazing experience.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Story

    I really liked this one.
    I love books who capture the essence of time long gone.
    This time is the early 20th century in the USA.
    The plot is good and I like that there is an old narrator and a young one.
    I didn't like the end that much - maybe because it was too much fiction for me but even so this one deserves 5 stars

  • Free: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    Mild-mannered Walter Mitty is a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. This well-known and beloved tale has launched its famous protagonist into the cultural lexicon, warranting his inclusion in English-language dictionaries and countless anthologies. Stiller's imaginative performance as Mitty is the perfect re-introduction to the classic character and a great preface to the upcoming film, for longtime fans and new listeners alike.

    I loved this one and it got me hooked to find out what will happen next in many cases.
    The are slow moments and stages where the story turns too romantic and mushi but that's OK as there are not too many of them.
    After listening to the Ender's saga and this one I can say I'm Orson SC fan.

    Being a Girl with Glasses isn't just a style choice; it's a way of life. If you've ever had your specs steam up when walking into a bar, squinted into the sun on the soccer field, or laid eyes on a new haircut only after your locks are strewn across the floor, you know what it's like to be a GWG. Marissa Walsh has worn glasses since third grade. Now - 10 pairs of glasses, one pair of prescription sunglasses, and endless pairs of contacts later - she has fully embraced her four-eyed fate.

    while he story is nice its seems a little too pressed to bring you a regular growing up story of a cute girl from the glasses POV.
    It could have been just the same if glasses were not involved.
    At some point mentioning the glasses was too much for me.

    A popular question in philosophy is "How do I know I exist?" That seems really boring, though. How about, "How can I use logic to get over my ex?" If you really love wisdom, you love it in all situations - you don't need to be spoon fed unsolved problems in philosophy, because you're already analyzing the US Weekly you’re reading or your kinda significant other. Sarah Heuer and Chrissy Stockton are writers living in Minneapolis who are determined to do something more interesting with their philosophy degrees than talk about dead white guys.

Not a Match: My True Tales of Online Dating Disasters is about one guy who experienced more than his fair share. Brian Donovan, a writer and comedian whose work has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NPR, and Chapelle's Show, has been on over 100 Internet dates in a genuine search for love and happiness.

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    Story

    I just loved the story and the story line from 4 different points of view.
    I did find it difficult to follow who is who especially at the beginning and would have needed 2 narrators and not just one to follow who is telling the story at any point.
    Any way this is very recommend.
