    When words of love do not come to you on their own, then listen to these letters. Complete, actual love letters of great men like Lord Byron, John Keats, and Voltaire. Leaders like Henry VIII, George Washington, and Napoléon, who wrote to his beloved Joséphine, "I awake consumed with thoughts of you...." Artists like van Gogh, Mozart, and Beethoven, who famously penned, "Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved...."

    Where does Love Letters of Great Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I actually set up an Audible account just to get this title.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of a handful of real life books that were created because of the fictional book of the same name that appeared on Sex And The City. This one stood out to me for two main reasons;

    1. I liked that it contained a back story on each of the 'great men'. That added a lot of depth and context to the letters (critical ingredients to true romance in my opinion!).

    2. The narration seemed very superior on this one compared to the others. And indeed, the letters were certainly very well performed. Each letter was read 'in character', and that really added to my enjoyment of them.

    Very well done!

    Curiosity stirs the soul of every human. Who has not wondered about how the human body works? Can we drown from drinking too much water? What is a black hole? Can black holes allow us to time travel? Is spontaneous human combustion possible? Do identical twins have the same fingerprints? How do scientists age dinosaur bones? How does gravity make things fall? Why do sunflowers always face the sun? What about a man flying with wings? How big would those wings have to be? How tall can a human grow? Why are tennis balls fuzzy? What happens to the white when snow melts?

    Stitch says: "A fun listen for lovers of science!`"

    What does Joel Richards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He sounded just like my high school science teacher!


    Any additional comments?

    It's simple;

    If you tend to settle on the Discovery Channel.
    If Stuff You Should Know with Josh and Chuck is one of your favorites.
    If Jamie, with his 'dry' style, is your favorite MythBuster

    then you'll enjoy this audiobook!
