    Story
    (1020)

    Look beyond the abstract dates and figures, kings and queens, and battles and wars that make up so many historical accounts. Over the course of 48 richly detailed lectures, Professor Garland covers the breadth and depth of human history from the perspective of the so-called ordinary people, from its earliest beginnings through the Middle Ages.

    Where does The Other Side of History: Daily Life in the Ancient World rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the best. A great combination of story and performance


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well narrated and informative. Where do I go for my course credit?


    What about Professor Robert Garland’s performance did you like?

    Very good storyteller. Took a short while getting used to to English accent. I found it very similar to the character of "Ducky" in NCIS. But as I listened his narration and use of humor was first rate. He made it easy to live the story that he was telling.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this to be a great listen. Dr. Garland both kept my attention and brought some chuckles from his intelligent brand of humor. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants real insight to history delivered in an interesting manner.

    Story

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Sorry the series has ended"
    Overall

    Each part of this series was better than the one before and all were 5 stars. My only regret was that I rushed through "Hornets Nest" instead of savoring it. I had the opportunity to visit Sweden last summer and get a better feel for the local.
    I truly mourn the death of a great writer.
