With his trademark mirth and boundless charisma, actor Nick Offerman brought the loveable shenanigans of Twain's adolescent hero to life in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Now, in yet another virtuosic performance, the actor proves that despite being separated by a span of over a century, his connection to the author and his work is undeniable and that theirs is a timeless collaboration that should not be missed.

I really liked this story; it might have been a little slow in some parts, but had great humor! Nick Offerman's performance took this to the next level. The combination of the dry humor and his performance had me laughing throughout this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it - and it's a very unique story. Loved!

We have a lifetime's association with our bodies, but for many of us they remain uncharted territory. In Adventures in Human Being, Gavin Francis leads the listener on a journey through health and illness, offering insights on everything from the ribbed surface of the brain to the secret workings of the heart and the womb; from the pulse of life at the wrist to the unique engineering of the foot.

This is a fun way to learn more about the human body. The discussion and performance is intriguing. The author presents the human body as a story.

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

I love the concept of this story, and the performance of the audio-book version was excellent. However, the story dragged on for far too long. Every little detail was described, analyzed, and then re-visited. It was far too detail-heavy, and I think the cool-factor of the story itself got lost in there.
