A popular question in philosophy is "How do I know I exist?" That seems really boring, though. How about, "How can I use logic to get over my ex?" If you really love wisdom, you love it in all situations - you don't need to be spoon fed unsolved problems in philosophy, because you're already analyzing the US Weekly you’re reading or your kinda significant other. Sarah Heuer and Chrissy Stockton are writers living in Minneapolis who are determined to do something more interesting with their philosophy degrees than talk about dead white guys.

I guess these days anyone can get published. I am so glad that this one was a free offer from Audible or I would be seriously upset for the waste of money as well as my time listening to this garbage.

Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

This book does not drag although you might want to take Ender across your knee a few times for being a petulant little brat. The story gives a probable account of a possible future and the misunderstandings that may occur with first contact. How we as a species will not just lay down, but will go to any length to survive even if it means damaging our little children.

I don't think they checked the transfer from CD or vinyl. There are two places where the narration skips like an old scratched record. Otherwise, the story is excellent.

At the opening of his third novel in an ongoing adventure series by Patrick O'Brian, Jack Aubrey is cruising off Cape Sicie when his friend Stephen Maturin (more serenely situated in Sussex) is informed of the Board's decision regarding Aubrey's prize money, taken after victorious engagement with a Spanish squadron at Cape Santa Maria. The money, five million pieces of eight, is not, as is the custom of war, to be divided among the crews of the four victorious vessels.

While I enjoy these books I decided to change narrators. Big mistake. Tull draws out the narrative too much. I'm going back to Vance.

"Call me Ishmael." Thus starts the greatest American novel. Melville said himself that he wanted to write "a mighty book about a mighty theme" and so he did. It is a story of one man's obsessive revenge-journey against the white whale, Moby-Dick, who injured him in an earlier meeting. Woven into the story of the last journey of The Pequod is a mesh of philosophy, rumination, religion, history, and a mass of information about whaling through the ages.

Although Melville can be long winded, this narrator makes the trip worth it. Great listen.
