    Renowned professor Thomas F. Madden focuses his expertise on what has been called the most beautiful city in the world: Venice. In these lectures, Professor Madden explains how the city on the lagoon was established by refugees escaping the onslaught of northern “barbarians” invading the crumbling Roman Empire. Through its history, Venice housed the world’s leading merchants, thrived as a maritime powerhouse, and developed into an independent republic not unlike the present United States.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Modern Scholar: A History of Venice to be better than the print version?

    I always love audio version of lectures. Because I don't have much time to sit still and hold my books.


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

    I love the way he performed that to me more like entertaining while I learn more about Venice, that I wouldn't get the experience if I just read any book about the history Venice


    Any additional comments?

    I have some expectation when I visit Venice someday thanks for this lecture. I will not just enjoy the scenery, but perceive the city that has fascinating ancient history, with all that unique and antique beauty.

    At first I didn't expect much, but then I was glad I gave it a try. This is my second audiobook with Jenny Lucas after Recklace night in Rio, and I love this one, even though the narrator made me struggling with her italian accent and the male voices, but I could get on with it till the end.

    Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math-whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can't afford to pay for. That's Jess' life in a nutshell - until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess' knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages...maybe ever.

    It was insupportable! Just because she couldn't prove her father had died in Africa and so couldn't claim her inheritance, was no reason to put her virtue at risk from her employer's nephew! But due to a series of mishaps making her escape, Miss Corisande Clifford found herself walking to Bath, only to be nearly mown down by Marc, the wild Marquis of Dene!
