This book makes use of some amazing records and information from Tesla's own papers. It paints a very interesting portrait of the scientist. It does get a bit bogged down in details of patent rights, electric theory the various players who pop in and out of Tesla's life. But definitely worthwhile for anyone interested in this amazing man.
Will's narration puts you on the river with this quartet of city boys in over their heads in the Georgia back country. Even if you've seen the movie you'll want to listen to this one.
An enlightening history of the war. From the perspective of 1963, it has some dated elements and is a little too heavy handed in regards to attitudes in the US and the world. But overall it is very well researched and presented.
I can't imagine a better narrator for this entertaining book than Lisette Lecat. She brings an authenticity to the story. And the story itself is beautifully crafted and leads the reader into the characters' lives.
This is a great set of shows from the very beginning of the Hitchkiker's craze. Plus some bonus material with interviews providing some nice behind the scenes info. Overall very enjoyable.
The novel is an American classic that hits home on many levels. Michael Emerson makes it come alive with an understated, expert performance. A real joy to hear.
For the start of a book series that's lasted more than 15 years and as many novels this was a pretty weak effort. A thinly plotted yarn about counterfeiting with some truly unbelievable plot elements, it went on a lot longer than I found it interesting. The performance didn't do the story any favors. Plenty of effort at individualizing the characters, but some of them were odd in an offputting way. The preview of the second book at the end was much more interesting.
There's very little narrative about the British spy ring and their actual spying activities and lots of gossipy anecdotes about wartime Washington. It doesn't really deliver on the premise.
This book is written by an author who comes across as very self-satisfied and a jerk to boot. Not worth spending 14+ hours with his thoughts.
Bradbury's stories are always thought provoking. There are some very good ones here and the rest are solid. This audiobook suffers from poor narration. Hoye has a good voice, but his inflection is affected and annoying.
A very enjoyable story. The author/narrator gets both sides of the story, from the Americans and the natives, which makes it all the more interesting. Neither side really understood the other, but the misunderstandings fell neatly into place to prevent what could have been an awful end for the survivors.
