I listened twice, adding up to the first 45 minutes of Tiger-man. I gave up! What made me think that this piece of literature was meant for children is the repetitiousness in every scene. The who, what where and the who, what, where and the who, what, where...as if the reader (or author) has severe, short-term memory loss.

I think the book might be enjoyed by 10 year-olds or younger. 10 year-olds or younger. 10 year...well, you get it.

Also, the narrator's audio is muffly sounding.

If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

Pure Carlin. Yet, overwhelmingly crude and crass

Funny in parts, clever in parts, and all that. But, I've never heard such a compact use of profanity. I would NOT want to be locked up in a prison cell with Carlin. (Yes, I know he's dead.) The language is far over-the-top for me. Got tired of it.

In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

A well narrated book, with male & female readers. Believable, interesting, unique main character. You must like dark stories with dead bodies. Solid consistent story, his best yet.
