  • The Sherlock Holmes Collection

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Arthur Conan Doyle
    • Narrated By David Ian Davies

    This wonderful collection of Sherlock Holmes' adventures, performed by David Ian Davies, includes "Mystery Of The Noble Bachelor," "The Darlington Substitution Scandal," "The Adventure Of The Golden Pince Nez Doyle" and more.

    Jason Romney says: "Horrible"
    "Too fast, too repetitive"

    The narrator has a few good character voices, but speaks everyone's lines with the same cadence. It is too fast. It is monotonous. It is tiring. It is hard to follow.

  • The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat, and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 25 mins)
    • By Nina Teicholz
    • Narrated By Erin Bennett

    Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! In this well-researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we've been told about fat is wrong. For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat "heart healthy" fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation's health has declined. What is going on?

    Ted says: "Great book. Challenges your belief system."
    "Not hype, not a diet fad: a thorough investigation"

    This book is not the opinion of one person trying to start a new diet fad. It's a well-researched and documented investigation of what has passed for science in the field of nutrition. Except for the Conclusions, any opinions come from researchers in the field, who are cited. Confessions of misrepresentation from Industry are cited. An excellent book!

  • Blah Blah Blah: Stories About Clams, Swamp Monsters, Pirates & Dogs

    • UNABRIDGED (1 hr)
    • By Bill Harley
    • Narrated By Bill Harley

    Here it is! The recording fans have been asking for! A recording that contains the hilarious and completely captivating tale of Dirty Joe, a pirate who steals socks, and his equally odious sister, Stinky Annie, who steals underwear.

    Tracie says: "Fun for kids and adults"

    I've been a Bill Harley fan for about 15 years, having seen him perform at story-telling festivals, and other venues.

    My kids (7, 9, and 12) like him too.
    We listened to this recording on a car trip and were all disappointed. The material just wasn't very funny or interesting. My kids said it was "just dumb".
    After listening to a half hour of "Blah, Blah, Blah", and a half hour of James Michener's "Alaska" they said they would rather listen to Michener.

  • Widowed: How to Cope with Loss

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs)
    • By Dr. Joyce Brothers
    • Narrated By Dr. Joyce Brothers

    Steve Kelem says: "Good book, lousy audio"
    "Good book, lousy audio"

    I liked the book, up to a point. The point where I really had to struggle to understand the low-quality audio. The audio is really poor.

    The content is sort of variable, spending a lot of time on the author's life, rather than on how to deal with becoming a widow/widower. I was hoping for less of the former, more of the latter.

  • Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children

    • ABRIDGED (2 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By John Rosemond
    • Narrated By John Rosemond

    Today's parents have been sold a bill of goods on so-called "quality time." They've been led to believe that children require constant attention. Psychologist John Rosemond knows that being a good parent is really about helping children get out of their lives! His easy-to-follow plan will start parents and children on the road to happiness and self-esteem.

    Grace says: "Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children"
    "Great book"

    This is a very useful book, and read well by the author. It gives good, practical techniques for steering your kids to be useful, helpful, cooperative, and on the road to self-sufficiency. Especially enlightening was the advice on keeping an emphasis on the marriage relationship, as it serves as a model for your kids' views on marital relationships.
