What disappointed you about The Sheltering Sky?

Uninspiring story, monotonous characters and insipid story. Jennifer Connelly is unable to lift this dull tale into the monumental epoch it is supposed to be

Would you listen to Deliverance again? Why?

The writer has an uncanny ability to describe even the most arcane of experiences in a way that makes the words leap off the page and into your face

Warren Buffett: Lessons from the World's Greatest Investor audiobook cover art

Not worthwhile

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-01-11

While the blurb promises lessons from Warren Buffet, the audiobook is a disappointing show. The author and narrator ramble about the basics of the stock market and basically fail to live upto expectations
