This collection of classic stories delves into the fascinating lore of Norse mythology to reveal the tales of Odin, Thor, Freya, and more. Compiled over a century ago, Foster & Cummings' writings give life to the stories that inspired the Vikings and some of our most beloved pop culture today.

Logen Ninefingers, infamous barbarian, has finally run out of luck. Caught in one feud too many, he's on the verge of becoming a dead barbarian - leaving nothing behind him but bad songs, dead friends, and a lot of happy enemies. Nobleman, dashing officer, and paragon of selfishness, Captain Jezal dan Luthar has nothing more dangerous in mind than fleecing his friends at cards and dreaming of glory in the fencing circle. But war is brewing, and on the battlefields of the frozen North they fight by altogether bloodier rules.

I have read and reread this series probably 8 times in paper and audio. The performance of the audiobooks is so amazing, they are likely the only existing audiobooks better than reading the hard copy. Smart, funny, sexy, and violent (the way I like my women). A must listen for fans of the genre.

I love Newt, so I really expected to love this book, but... He obviously knows how Washington operates, and we all know terrorism is knocking at our door. Idk. Maybe it was the voice actor's stupid female voices that threw me off the most. Like some of my favorite Star Wars books, the one actor who does the best reading and voices otherwise, really sucks at doing female voices. Same here.

Listeners to Dr. Savage's top-rated radio talk show, The Savage Nation, know him to be an articulate and engaged spokesman for traditional American values of borders, language, and culture. Now, after eight divisive years of Barack Obama, Dr. Savage lays out an irrefutable case for how our nation has been undermined by terrorists from without, by anarchists from within, by a president and politicians with contempt for the Constitution and the law, and by a complicit liberal media.

As a Libertarian I find his solutions frightening, but his information is correct. Savage is right about one thing. We need a change, and Hillary ain’t it.

French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre said that "words are loaded pistols". In the hands of Russ Baker, they are hydrogen bombs. On each and every page of his masterpiece, Family of Secrets, he explodes the myths and lies that powerful forces have perpetrated on the American consciousness. He digs beneath the surface in a form of journalistic archeology to reveal the hidden history of one of America's most powerful families, leaving no stone unturned.

Ok, so the JFK assassination part was fascinating. Not necessarily news, but certainly he gives the complete picture.
The book really fell apart for me in the following chapters. As a Libertarian type, I am not surprised by the tales of political intrigue, corruption, and demogoguery, but I was irritated by the authors' obvious leftist slant. The last few chapters seemed repetitive and unobjective.
