Gone With the Wind (Recorded Books Contemporary Classics)
Gone With the Wind (Recorded Books Contemporary Classics)
by Margaret Mitchell
Edition: MP3 CD
Price: $15.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio gone with the wind, March 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Many years ago (2001), Recorded Book (Books on Tape) released this unabridged audio version on cassettes. Narrated by Linda Stephens, it was ahead of its audio time. At 49 hours, this is the complete GONE WITH THE WIND Unabridged. It is still the only audio version of this classic novel.

On these four MP3 disks (and also available on audible) showcasesd what a great solo voice effort really is. Other a few vocal changes, this a great spoken word recording.

Stephens makes each voice a solo character, which was rare in recording in 2000 when this production was recorded

Trigger Mortis: A James Bond Novel (James Bond Series)
Trigger Mortis: A James Bond Novel (James Bond Series)
by Anthony Horowitz
Edition: Audio CD
Price: $35.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Bond Latest Audio opus, January 28, 2016
Anthony Horowitz, The crested of Alex Storm and Foyle's War, took on the challedge to play in Ian Fleming's literary world with the novel Trigger Mortis.. Moreover the thrill of this Bond novel is the audio version. This is more exciting due to narrator David Oyelowo. Oyelowo is the first black man to narrate a Bond Novel and he does an amazing job. He takes Bond places in his vocals unheard by Simon Vance who does Bond for Blackstone audio..

The problem is the novel itself. This is the Bond of Fleming and not of the cinema. Most know Bond as a movie character, and not of book. However this unabridged audio book started right after the events of Goldfinger the novel. The character of Pussy Galor has joined Bond back in england. Her character is moreover a distraction to this latest 007 opus. Author Horowitz craftes this Bond well, as a Fleming novel was writing. He even used a few pieces that Fleming wrote from an unpublished Bond book

It takes so long to get the action started in this book. It does build, but slowly...too slowly for my tastes

If you want to enjoy the Bond adventure, The audio talent is not to be missed. The text does bog it down slightly

So give it a chance

5.0 out of 5 stars 8 GB player worth it, January 9, 2016
The dealer had sent me a review copy of this mp3 player to use for review purposes

I enjoy MP3 players-this 8 GB player reminds me of more expensive APPLE products without the APPLE frills. The sound quality is great for a small player. NOTE the file transfer from mp3 disk to unit to great-i have a 50 hour audiobook of Gone With The Wind , it only use 1/4 of the disk space. again I cant stop saying this...the sound quality is amazing.The graphic equalizer is almost preset and works well. Note i will be trying music next..Replaying of play lists is awkward, but I can get use to it. It better than some other units I have

This slim player is very small and fits in a small bag, pocket, etc for travel,running,etc. however the sound quality is larger than the expensive units.

Note I used a PC to charge,not the cube--so I dont know how it works with that.

And for less than $25, It is worth the price

3.0 out of 5 stars Lucy's dramatic turn, December 16, 2015
This review is from: Stone Pillow (DVD)
I got this film as part of a group of holiday films I got as Decemeber Seasonal Holiday gifts.
\

We all love Lucy. However this dramatic film was not the best of Ms Ball. She takes a turn as a bag lady in New York. This dramatic turn felt forced. Her character of Horabella is developed well in the hands of George Schaeffer, but it is not suitable for Ms Ball. Drama is not her strong suit, I dont feel she had the acting chops to pull this off.

Daphne Zunigma (Spaceballs) alsdo seemed out of her depths in this drama. She tends to pander to Ms Ball rather than acting besider her

All the whole it isnt great, but a TV movie of the 1980s, it still holds up and is more timely than ever

5.0 out of 5 stars 25th Aniverse on DVD of P,P & M, December 16, 2015
This concert was a hol;iday gift and is great

The concern from 1986..and still capture the trio's magic quality. You can hear the love for their music these three had, no group (even the Beatles) had tenderness in their concern. They were more than a folk trio. They sparkled as they sang. Almost 30 years later, the music seems fresh and alive.

The three of them made a special footnote in musical history and to watch this DVD, you can hear and see this...so why not get this and enjoy this with your families

Not My Father's Son: A Memoir
Not My Father's Son: A Memoir
by Alan Cumming
Edition: Audio CD
Price: $23.57

5.0 out of 5 stars what a ride!, December 7, 2015
Noted actor, director, producer Alan Cumming openned a window to his past when he signed onto the TV show “Who do You Think You are? His world he had put in boxes in the attic, now faced him

He renew a relationship with his father Alex Cummings , who he had not spoken to in year.This is deep cutting introspection to boarder on the uncomfortable. In this audio book, he takes the listener with you

Cumming is an amazing actor, but this isnt Shakerspear, The text cuts deeply into what the man has become from what we are in our lives. His crisp narration is mind blowing. If you seen him perform on stage (I saw him in Cabaret as the MC) or the TV show The Good Wife, this real life story narration will show you , the listener, a new facet of Cummin's diamond acting style. In his narration, he does not seem to try to narrate, he does it with ease and I am amazed

The audio is an emotion piece. You may find yourself upset at a crossroads since the author mixes witty asides with his painful admissions.

He does not hide anything once he pulled the emotion cords. This is what a great biography is all about. It's open and raw...worth your time and effort to listen to.

A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety
A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety
by Jimmy Carter
Edition: Audio CD
Price: $21.58

4.0 out of 5 stars A Full Life worth Listening, December 7, 2015
Remember what in your life made you proud and string is not easy. Reflection at ninety is amazing when you listen to President Jimmy Carter.

Carter does not sound angry at life. He discusses his marriage, his career as a statesman and even as a fisherman. He is reflective on life and not just dwelling on her term as President of the United States.

This organized biography has a direction, but also has a stream of thought ideal. In listening to Carter's voice, his slow delivery shows thought behind each words he speaks. However, It also feel like a ninety year old man trying to come to geipped with an anazing life.

He also discusses his Cancer treatments and his emotion states as a cancer patient. He inspires without being so full of himself

This is amazing listening from a man who was the President and still humbles himself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Harris's follies, December 7, 2015
The Best Time Ever TV host Neil Patrick Harris tried to do a pick a path adventure in his original hardcover...it works in a regular book. However, The problem is Pick a Path adventures doesn't work in audio book format . The gags wears thin as you listen. Mr Harris is charming narrating his life, but it makes you may feel wanting in your listening

In his audiobook, he has comments from others intermixed with Harris narration. This is mostly read by a man with a heavy british accent (Note the packaging does not state who he is) .With this outside narration which makes you feel more outta place in your listening pleasure. I wished the publisher got the real Penn Jullette (from Penn & Teller fame) to narrate his short part of this audio bio.

Patrick is a good storyteller, You only wish this audiobook was less parody and more heartform. It is seven hours of cuteness, but also like sweet candy, too much will make you sick. This audio is great is short listens, but don't try to listen to this in one long session.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moore's Saint is Heavenly, November 24, 2015
This review is from: The Saint: Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)
I recieved this a gift from a friend

Ihave always loved the Saint . Roger Moore played Simon Templar, a man of mysterty,debonar rogue called The Saint..Moore was so cool without being slick. This adventure series was not always a cop show, The Saint played in the world of the rich. The plots of these shows, based upon
the novels, were complexed pieces of Television. You had to watch these shows to get them

These 39 Black & White episodes of the Saint is classic. This was the 60's..so cell phones and overdone car chases. . You needed to use dialog to bring a point across.This show was more an adventure show, than a poice show

It is worth it, YES totally . What works were the production value . The scripts were tight and well crafted..It still holds up today

5.0 out of 5 stars Player for All Seasons, October 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I recieved a review copy for an HONEST REVIEW of the produce

This MP3 MP4 is menu driven and remind of an APPPLE product. It has an sd card included to put your music of audiobooks on. Other than a slight file formatting issues I had with my Window Media media downloading to the file card--It is great! The playback is playing sound crisp and clear. I used audiobooks, however music would also sound good. The player charges well and would be like that similar APPLE product that this look similar to, however this is less expensive and does what that APPLE Item will also do

I would say get this
