  • Tolstoy: The Death of Ivan Ilyich & Master and Man

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Leo Tolstoy
    • Narrated By Simon Vance

    In these two famous short novels, Leo Tolstoy takes readers to the brink of despair. At the end of life, worldly ambition offers no consolation for the spiritually empty soul, but Tolstoy is the master of themes and redemption. He turns his morbid topic into hope, leading toward spiritual awakening. Tolstoy offers his readers a lifetime of perspective on death.

    Laurie says: "Perfect blend of material and performer..."
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    I guess it should come as no surprise that Tolstoy is awesome? Both these stories are amazing and moving and human and wow. First thing I've even read/listened of Tolstoy, I think I need to check out some more.

  • The Man Who Was Thursday

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By G. K. Chesterton

    Story

    Chesterton's allegorical masterpiece is a surreal, psychologically thrilling novel that centres on seven anarchists in turn of the century London who call themselves by the names of days of the week.

    Darwin8u says: "A clever Christian allegory"
    "Fantastic Twists and Turns"
    Overall

    I got on to Chesterton after seeing his name on various quotes in Neil Gaiman's work, and I was not let down by this story. It is a great weave, and though the final twist could disapoint some I found it put a smile on my face. (but I won't spoil it for you)

  • The Screwtape Letters

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By C.S. Lewis
    • Narrated By Ralph Cosham

    Story
    (1184)

    A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old Devil to his nephew, Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.

    Amazon Customer says: "So much truth, much of it scary."
    "Tell me how you really feel!"
    Overall

    I have never wanted to stop listening to anything more in my life. The ego of Lewis is totally out of control as he dissertates in a thinly veiled story what he feels is right and wrong. I made myself finish the listen since I thought subjecting myself to strong opposing opinions would in some masochistic way be good for me. Torture!
