  • Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis

    In Our Endangered Values, Carter offers a personal consideration of "moral values" as they relate to the important issues of the day. He puts forward a passionate defense of separation of church and state, and a strong warning of where the country is heading as the lines between politics and rigid religious fundamentalism are blurred.

    Vicki says: "Very interesting"
    "Best Ex-President Ever!"
    Overall

    President Carter once again shows the intelligence and articulateness that earned him the Presidency. He puts forth a solid argument against the fundamentalism that is running rampant through the far right in America today. He uses scripture to completely debunk the idea that any Christian should support "Preemptive attacks".

    It is good to read a solid argument from someone with real credentials in politics and religion.

    In a radical break with the past, information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into its stream. Individuals and companies can no longer rely on the stocks of knowledge that theyve carefully built up and stored away. Information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into the stream.

    Overall

    The book repeatedly refers to illustrations that they claim should be available in .pdf form "where you downloaded this book." Those illustrations are still not available from Audible, which means you are not getting the complete book.

    Story

    What turns out to be one of the most interesting cases of the great detective's career begins when a country doctor visits Holmes and Watson in London. He brings with him the legend of the hound and news of the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville. Sir Charles' heir, Henry, is arriving from America and the doctor is afraid for the young man's life. Holmes despatches Dr Watson to accompany them back to the dark and somber estate in the Devon moor.

    Overall

    This was HORRIBLE.
    It was like listening to a stage play or a television show. The format is completely unsuited to an audio program. It desperately needed narration at the very least.

    Story
    (1993)

    Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. But can he really be expected to stand by and watch while a bully picks on his scrawny best friend? Or not defend himself against his pre-algebra teacher when she turns into a monster and tries to kill him? Of course, no one believes Percy about the monster incident; he's not even sure he believes himself.

    Martha says: "Great Story!"
    "An engaging listen"
    Overall

    This was better then I thought it would be. It is written for a young adult audience but adults should find it interesting also, especially if you know your mythology.

    The reader was alright, although his attempts at alternate voices was pretty bad.
