The short stories seem really disjointed at first, particularly the first one. I cept thinking back to it wondering why it was in this colection, but they are all bilding up to the final story, and it is great!

I am a huge fan of this auther, and the preformer adds some sweet voices to it as well.

This dark psychological fantasy is more than a moral tale. It is also a product of its time, drawing on contemporary theories of class, evolution and criminality, and the secret lives behind Victorian propriety, to create a unique form of urban Gothic.

first off I would have to say that I totally forgot about the other Tales of Terror part. For the whole second half of the listening I was wondering what the heck this has to do with mr. Hyde.

they were definitely interesting to listen to, as they come from an era when books were written very differently than today. dr. Jekyll and mr. Hyde was shorter than I expected it to be seeing as how there are so many offshoots of it.

the other Tales didn't really make sense to me though. didn't really seem to have much meaning, and the last one was quite baffling.

Following its initial appearance in serial form, Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage was published as a complete work in 1895 and quickly became the benchmark for modern antiwar literature. In the character of Henry Flemming, Stephen Crane provides a great and realistic study of the mind of an inexperienced soldier trapped in the fury and turmoil of war. Flemming dashes into battle, at first tormented by fear, then bolstered with courage in time for the final confrontation.

I love this whole series thus far (only just found out that it is not a trilogy!). It's pretty much Sherlock in space, with all the sword and gun fights one would expect from a 40K novel. Not sure where it can go from here, but I am excited to find out.

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite.

What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research. Humorous, surprising, and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.

12 Strong is the dramatic account of a small band of Special Forces soldiers who secretly entered Afghanistan following 9/11 and rode to war on horses against the Taliban. Outnumbered 40 to one, they pursued the enemy army across the mountainous Afghanistan terrain and, after a series of intense battles, captured the city of Mazar-i-Sharif. The bone-weary American soldiers were welcomed as liberators as they rode into the city. Then the action took a wholly unexpected turn.

the story of the Special Forces soldiers is amazing, I just find that the author put a little too much of his own opinion into the main storytelling. the little bit he does at the end is fine, because that section is legitimately just for him telling his opinion. but when he sprinkles it throughout the book it kind of takes away from the reality of the story.

also, it could just be me but it took me awhile to get used to the reader.

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

this is a story I think all young men should listen to or read. not that I think all young men should join the Army to go to war, but I think all men should be ready to fight for what is wright, fight for their country, and their families. not only that I think that Chris is stories about being a father as well as a soldier are very inspiring, and all men could and should take inspiration from him.

I originally started listening to this book thinking that it wasn't going to be very good, I just needed something to distract me from my dental appointment. despite its name werewolf cop is actually a really good book. the first chapter kind of drones on, the author gives a lot of backstory right up front to every character, but the rest of the book has some nice pacing, and a realness that makes it feel right.
