Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family."

This is a great book, and very very applicable to today's challenges in society. I have to say also, the narration for this book is second to none. Tim Robbins does such a great job with it. He legitimately brings this story to life in your imagination. It's a shame that he doesn't do many audiobooks.

In 1518, in a small town in Alsace, Frau Troffea began dancing and didn't stop. She danced until she was carried away six days later, and soon 34 more villagers joined her. Then more. In a month more than 400 people had been stricken by the mysterious dancing plague. In late-19th-century England an eccentric gentleman founded the No Nose Club in his gracious townhome - a social club for those who had lost their noses, and other body parts, to the plague of syphilis for which there was then no cure.

I can honestly say that hearing about death has never been so fun. It's such an odd subject to add humor to, but the stories told could leave a person very depressed if humor wasn't present. There's also some very good points made towards the end regarding the state of health care today and possible future plagues.

To understand the roots of personality is to understand motivations and influences that shape behavior, which in turn reflect how you deal with the opportunities and challenges of everyday life. That's the focus of these exciting 24 lectures, in which you examine the differences in people's personalities, where these differences come from, and how they shape our lives. Drawing on information gleaned from psychology, neuroscience, and genetics, Professor Leary opens the door to understanding how personality works and why.

This was a very well done course with some really great insight on human personality. I can say that it dragged on a bit towards the end and felt a bit repetitive, but because the subject matter was so dense, it was worth hearing some of it repeated. I'll likely listen to this again.

I really, really, really loved the movie of this book series. It seemed long overdue to give the book a try. I can say that the movie covers the book extremely well, so you won't be adding much to the story. But some of the emotions you experience during the book just can't be replicated on screen to the same degree. It's worth a read for sure. The narrator was great with this book as well.

With all of the pluck and charm of its eponymous young hero, Rachel McAdams ( The Notebook, Spotlight, Midnight in Paris) delivers a spectacular reading of Montgomery's beloved bildungsroman. In moments both funny and bittersweet, McAdams' voice is imbued with the spark that has made Anne a much-loved symbol of individualism and cheer for over a century.

I have to admit, I was skeptical of Rachel McAdams when I started this book. I found it a bit difficult to get past envisioning some of her characters she plays on screen when she was reading. But once I got past that, she was fantastic. This was my first experience of the book and I can proudly say it started me on the journey down the series.

This books is absolutely fantastic and has something in it for everybody. It seems like it may have been marketed towards women to a degree, but I didn't find that it was written that way. It's a very personal glimpse into their family life in the White House and the many challenges that go along with it.

Michelle Obama can also add narrator to the many things she's great at as well.

The book is great. It's slightly less engaging than the first of the series but the story still remains captivating and worth a read/listen. The narrator however was an extremely poor choice. She reads fine, but if you are trying to find yourself deep in the story you'll have a hard time getting past the British accent applied to a Canadian. This is especially annoying if you just finished the first novel narrated by Rachel McAdams. The audio quality also seemed very dated.

I think the reviews is what ruined this book for me. No review I read gave away the end, but knowing about a twist made me look for it and I figured it out early on in the book which made the end pretty disappointing. If I avoided reviews I may have appreciated what the author did a little more. I didn't particularly care for narrator in this case either.
