    Experience Hamlet as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world. The unabridged drama is also presented without commentary.

    Listen to the version with commentary, then the one without, for a fantastic experience, as you will then understand every utterance! This would have been time-consuming in print, but it goes by quickly with Audible. Thanks for a great series. The actors are very professional and do the master justice.

    First published in 1973, Skye Moody’s Hillbilly Women shares the stunning and raw oral histories of 19 women in 20th-century Southern Appalachia, from their day-to-day struggles for survival to the personal triumphs of their hardscrabble existence. They are wives, widows, and daughters of coal miners; factory hands, tobacco graders, cotton mill workers, and farmers; and women who value honest labor, self-esteem, and dignity.

    Skye Moody relays beautifully and authentically the first-person voices in this amazing record of a lost era, when women still churned their own butter, were married off in their teens, and had more children than they could feed. Moody’s women may be broke and illiterate, but they are sharp and tough as nails. These are the stories of children working in the mines and corporations extracting every drop of sweat and blood with impunity. It is to the brave protests of this generation that we owe our equitable legal system, more compassionate government agencies, and more humane regulations. An inspiring collection of interviews from a versatile author of both fiction and nonfiction. Well read too!

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Very well researched, organizing all the information gleaned from letters seamlessly. One of Isaacson's best. Very well dramatized. The only small flaw is trying to explain some of the theories--unnecessary. Otherwise, it was great to see Einstein's early struggles with math/academics, and his personal and romantic life. Well done.
