    Scientist Charles Neumann loses a leg in an industrial accident. It's not a tragedy. It's an opportunity. Charlie always thought his body could be better. He begins to explore a few ideas. To build parts. Better parts. Prosthetist Lola Shanks loves a good artificial limb. In Charlie, she sees a man on his way to becoming artificial everything. But others see a madman. Or a product. Or a weapon. A story for the age of pervasive technology, Machine Man is a gruesomely funny unraveling of one man's quest for ultimate self-improvement.

    "Interesting premise, bad narrator."

    Story

    Barry writes an interesting story of the limitations of the human body and what would happen if we decided to replace parts with machinery. It's a bit surface level, and I wish Barry had taken the social satire a bit deeper. The worst part is the narrator. It's almost painful listening to him.

    Story

    Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional Gold Medal, Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel offers an unforgettable account of Hitler's horrific reign of terror in Night. This definitive edition features a new translation from the original French by Wiesel's wife and frequent translator, Marion Wiesel.

    Story

    Wiesel's account of his time in Auschwitz is different from many other survivors' accounts I've read as it focuses not as much on the facts of the experience, but of the emotional journey. Wiesel keeps nothing from his readers as he recounts his experience of WWII. The narrator is excellent and helps give even more life and depth to Wiesel's narrative. An excellent listen for anyone wanting a glimpse inside the heart and mind of a young, Jewish teenager sent to Auschwitz. Such an impactful listen.

    Story
    (2023)

    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Amazon Customer says: "An exceptional story, but I miss George Guidall."
    "Good story, and don't be put off by King narrating"

    Story

    This is a great, quick look back into Rolland's life. Very entertaining little story. Don't be put off by King narrating. At first, it's a bit painful, but you get into the rhythm of his readying fairly quickly.

    The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

    Gaiman and Pratchett have written an absolutely hilarious book! The characters have so much, well, character. They're unforgettable. So creative and well narrated.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Pamela says: "The circus of your dreams"

    I loved Night Circus. Imaginative, exciting, well written and perfectly narrated (of course). It's a very different take on magic than anything I've read before. It's a great listen. Within the first couple of chapters, you'll be hooked!
