    Where does Ameritopia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ameritopia?

    The author's explanation of how the greatest minds in history have not been able to design a working utopia here on earth - nor will we ever find true utopia here on earth.


    What about Adam Grupper and Mark R. Levin ’s performance did you like?

    I liked the clarity of their reading of the text. It was neither monotone or overdone. It was just right.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The most interesting tidbit is the analysis of how we are living in a post-Constitutional republic and we are at a critical decision point between living in America or Ameritopia


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book. It contains valuable information needed to cure that which ills our current political situation.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend this book to a friend because it is THE Tolkien story that started it all. Every child should have the opportunity to have The Hobbit read to them and every adult deserves to revisit this classic. With the release of the first Hobbit movie, there's no better time to bring new fans into the fold.


    What other book might you compare The Hobbit to and why?

    The Hobbit is the book which gave new life to the genre. All others such as The Chronicles of Narnia, are the outgrowth of this new life.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Inglis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I have listened to his reading of The Lord of the Rings and he does a very admirable job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It’s a dangerous business going out of your door. You step into the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.

    Do you remember your first time? People tend to remember the moment they first heard The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio. For Zev Chafets, it was in a car in Detroit, driving down Woodward Avenue. Limbaugh's braggadocio, the outrageous satire, the slaughtering of liberal sacred cows performed with the verve of a rock-n-roll DJ-it seemed fresh, funny and completely subversive.

    Top 10


    What other book might you compare Rush Limbaugh to and why?

    Reagan In His Own Hand - because both give you remarkable insight into the person apart from the partisan spin.


    What about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance did you like?

    His performance was very good. I listened to this on a long drive and never got tired or bored with the reading.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. As mentioned above, I listened to this on a long drive and knocked out most of it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Love him or hate him, you really should get past the partisan rhetoric and get to know him. This is the perfect book for doing that.

    Winner of the 1961 Hugo Award for Best Novel and widely considered one of the most accomplished, powerful, and enduring classics of modern speculative fiction, Walter M. Miller’s A Canticle for Leibowitz is a true landmark of 20th-century literature—a chilling and still-provocative look at a postapocalyptic future.

    Story
    What did you love best about A Canticle for Leibowitz?

    A Canticle for Leibowitz is a unique and compelling story. The three parts of the book were tied together in a very creative way that kept me waiting to discover what happened next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although written in the 1950's and set in the distant future, the themes, struggles, questions on science & religion, and the human condition are timeless.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It is difficult to choose a favorite scene as there were so many that were memorable and outstanding. My favorite character was Br. Francis, so I would choose his meeting with the Pope in New Rome.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Preserving the Past to Ensure the Future


    Any additional comments?

    A Canticle for Liebowitz is a must read for science fiction/fantasy fans as well as people of faith. You won't be disappointed.
