    George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture, quoted so often that we tend to forget who wrote the original words! This must-read is also a must-listen!

    Story

    The introduction pretty much described the entirety of the book, so I listened for about half of it and lost interest because I already knew the progression of the story. I would have been much more into it without that intro.

  • Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness

    Story
    (1282)

    In 2009, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room strapped to a bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records - from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory - reported psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four-year-old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter

    Eric Schurr says: "Very scary, real story, superbly written and rea"
    "Great book, but the narration doesn't jive."

    Story

    While I didn't love the narration, I did really love the writing. It's amazing to experience the miracle that someone has not only gone through this terrible brain illness, but has come back to herself enough to tell the story and to tell it well. It's quite fortunate for the illness itself to have been experienced by a reporter. It's a view all its own.
    More about the narration: There were a lot of words that the narrator pronounced in a really odd way. Odd enough to pull me out of the story. As the book went on, I got a real sense for the author and also a sense that the narrator wasn't on target with it.
    This was a wonderful, amazing, insightful, and informative book, but I will pause when seeing this narrator attached to another book.
