    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    For the price, it is great. It might should be longer or more in depth but then it would cost more.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It is a little dry but there are not many math books on here as of now.


    What three words best describe James Powers’s voice?

    Straight-forward, easy, fast.


    Do you think Algebra, Trigonometry, and Statistics needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure, hopefully as cheap again.


    Any additional comments?

    It seems to be the perfect book to throw on when I cannot decide which book to do next. I do not really care if I absorb it through each time; repeated usage will do the trick. Quick and painless but overall helpful.

  • The Metamorphosis

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 7 mins)

    Story

    No wonder Elias Canetti described it as "one of the few great and perfect works of the poetic imagination written". The Metamorphosis remains one of the best works of fiction in history. It is the story of a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who wakes up to find himself being transformed to an insect-like creature. The story unfolds into one of the greatest short fiction stories ever written.

    Jeanne Nix says: "Is this really a person narrating?"
    "Great story, maybe weirdly read, but I enjoyed it."

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

    Yes, it is cheap enough not to fret about, short enough to give a chance, and overall rewarding.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Metamorphosis?

    Delving into the mind and sympathizing with a cockroach. Did not think I could go there but I did. I hate cockroaches.


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

    Definitely check out the sample first. The performer has a languid, almost mechanical pace to his voice. But for me it worked. I usually listen to books while working on projects or driving and like it when they speak slower and simpler so I can focus on the task at hand more than the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It has some dark humor that I found smirk-worthy. The ending was satisfying.


    Any additional comments?

    Try it, it may just be the most original story you ever read. One billion English teachers probably aren't wrong.
