    Story

    This has to be one of the best "Great Courses" books I have listened to. Professor Livermore has a great delivery and is incredibly knowledgeable of the topic. Anyone that travels or works with different cultures needs to listen to this course.

  • Bearing an Hourglass: Incarnations of Immortality, Book Two

    When life seems pointless to Norton, he accepts the position of Incarnation of Time. With the other incarnations - Death, Fate, War, and Nature - distracting him, Satan springs a cunning trap. Bearing an Hourglass is a fascinating, richly imagined tale that reaches beyond genre conventions. Science-fiction/fantasy legend Piers Anthony combines a gripping plot with a serious and thought-providing study of good and evil.

    Story

    I enjoyed the first book in this series and wanted to continue the adventure. The storyline in this book, however is too jumbled and tedious.

    I understand that the main character is disoriented by his new life, but there are several times the dialog is just too repetitive on this topic. He seems to be confused about EVERYTHING. The author feels the need to remind us every third sentence that the hero is confused or looking at the "most beautiful woman he had ever seen."

    Overall the book is slow moving and repetitive. I only made it to Chapter 9 and I did not finish listening to it.
