Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Audiobook by Jules Verne, Bina Ofek (translator)

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Author: Jules Verne, Bina Ofek (translator) Narrator: Jonathan Kis-Lev Format: Unabridged Length: 5 hrs and 35 mins Language: English Release date: 04-08-11 Publisher: SonicBooks Ltd. Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 1 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is a classic science-fiction novel by Jules Verne, published in 1869. One day, ships start sinking, particularly ones dealing with war. Survivors think it is a big whale. A harpoon ship goes out to kill it, but finds out that the "whale" is actually the Nautilus, a submarine. The most interesting part of this book is probably the Nautilus itself. It is shaped to look like a fish, with a large metal fin on top used to ram and sink ships. The camouflage works, until the Nautilus takes on a few passengers from one of the sinking ships. The novel tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax. It translated into Hebrew by Bina Ofek and was published by Ofarim. The audiobook version was produced by SonicBooks. Please note: This audiobook is in Hebrew. Members Reviews: READ REVIEW FOR ***CORRECT TRANSLATION*** There are three significant translations of this book, and amazon's lacklustre book-sorting system creates nothing but chaos when searching for the correct format / translation of this book. I'm here to help! note: (find the version you are looking for with the ISBN numbers I've provided at the bottom of this review, you can just copy and paste them into the amazon search field and hit GO). Here are excerpts from the three most common translations: Paragraph one, translated by Mercier Lewis - THE YEAR 1866 WAS signalized by a remarkable incident, a mysterious and inexplicable phenomenon, which doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Not to mention rumors which agitated the maritime population, and excited the public mind, even in the interior of continents, seafaring men were particularly excited. Merchants, common sailors, captains of vessels, skippers, both of Europe and America, naval officers of all countries, and the governments of several states on the two continents, were deeply interested in the matter. Paragraph one, translated by Walter James Miller and Frederick Paul Walter (1996) - THE YEAR 1866 was marked by a bizarre development, an unexplained and downright inexplicable phenomenon that surely no one has forgotten. Without getting into those rumors that upset civilians in the seaports and deranged the public mind even far inland, it must be said that professional seamen were especially alarmed. Traders, shipowners, captains of vessels, skippers, and master mariners from Europe and America, naval officers from every country, and at their heels the various national governments on these two continents, were all extremely disturbed by the business. Paragraph one, translated by William Butcher - The year 1866 was marked by a strange event, an unexplained and inexplicable occurrence that doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Without mentioning the rumours which agitated the denizens of the ports and whipped up the public's imagination on every continent, seafaring men felt particularly disturbed.

His host, Count Dracula, is a curious creature who becomes enamored with the photograph of Harker's fiancée, Mina. Dracula decides he must find the enchanting Mina and have her as his own. He boards a boat and makes the long journey to find Mina, as the ship's crew mysteriously disappears one by one. Van Helsing, called to care for Mina's friend, Lucy, senses there is something different about Dracula. Mina is drawn to Dracula's seduction and tries to fight this overwhelming power. But can she? Members Reviews: Perfect actor for the parts What did you like best about this story? The story telling through letters and diary entries allowed the reader to experience the confusion of the character by being in their head and not just by observance. I thought the the character's denial of old world superstitions because of their modern day living rang true and added to the suspense. Which scene was your favorite? I really enjoyed the beginning of the book where the reader is slowly taking a ride with the character into the heart of darkness. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? There was a shipwreck by a Russian vessel that fit within the story much like folklore yet it was a real scene within the story. It worked as its own vignette and was very engaging and spooky. Any additional comments? I have a tendency to enjoy one voice reading all parts. This actor did not stereotype the female voice by talking squeaky or shrill. All parts were thoughtfully read and the American voice was comically appropriate. I would definately listen to this actor read again Outstanding performance The story is old and well know. However this performance was a new way to enjoy the book! A terrifying classic. Of all the versions of this book here on audible, I found this one to be my perfect listen, because the narration is evenly paced, and the book is in journal form, which gives the listener a first person account unlike any other book that I have listened to that was written during the publication date. The plot is exactly what you would want in a straight up horror novel. A man is trapped in a vampire's castle, while Dracula is planning on snacking on London. I had a cassette version years ago that was of course an abridgment, but it never came close to this version. You can't simply condense a novel like this in just three hours. great book! I loved it. much much better than movie! I also love how this comment section says is optional but you're required to put at least 20 words however still love the book Don't work : Audio book not working try another one faulty ahhh hhhhh ahhh ahhh ahhh ahhh help Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: In the Penal Colony Author: Franz Kafka Narrator: Peter Yearsley Format: Unabridged Length: 1 hr and 5 mins Language: English Release date: 09-27-16 Publisher: Paperless Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 8 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: "In the Penal Colony" ("In der Strafkolonie") (also translated as "In the Penal Settlement") is a short story by Franz Kafka written in German in October 1914, revised in November 1918, and first published in October 1919. The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. Internal clues and the setting on an island suggest Octave Mirbeau's "The Torture Garden" as an influence. As in some of Kafka's other writings, the narrator in this story seems detached from, or perhaps numbed by, events that one would normally expect to be registered with horror. "In the Penal Colony" describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of 12 hours. As the plot unfolds, the listener learns more and more about the machine, including its origin and original justification. Members Reviews: Simply a brilliant description of cruelty An amazing piece of literature. Kafka catches the cold hearted cruelty of the officer, the subservience of the soldier, the fear of the convicted man and the sympathy of the traveler without being sentimental, with a surprising but logical ending. Great Kafka short story Another crazy book by Kafka, always great at describing absurd situations in the most casual way. Excellent book (more of a short story) Uncomfortable In true Kafka fashion, a mesmerizing tale of the inhumanity of authority. A quick but enjoyable read. He is a favorite. great book It was a quick and entertaining read. I'd certainly recommend it to a friend. I look forward to reading more of Kafka's works soon!

Sein Sohn Woldemar, Gardeoffizier in Berlin, besucht ihn mit seinen Freunden, Rex und Czako. Weitere Personen kommen und gehen, unter ihnen der mit einer Prinzessin verheiratete Oberförster Katzler, das Ehepaar von Gundermann und Pastor Lorenzen. Es kommt zu zahlreichen Gesprächen. Während die meisten Dorfbewohner eher sittenstreng sind, zeigt Lorenzen sozialdemokratisches Gedankengut. Es wird über aktuelle Ereignisse gesprochen, konservative Sichtweisen gegen liberale und sozialdemokratische Tendenzen abgewogen. Auf der Rückreise nach Berlin besuchen Woldemar, Rex und Czako zusammen mit Dubslav dessen Schwester Adelheid im Kloster Wutz, die das dortige Damenstift führt und sehr konservative Einstellungen hat. Sie missbilligt die liberalen Anschauungen Dubslavs. In Berlin geht Woldemar im Hause des verwitweten Grafen Barby ein und aus. Dieser hat zwei Töchter: Melusine, über 30 Jahre alt, nach kurzer Ehe geschieden, gebildet und gewitzt und die stille Armgard. Woldemar ist sowohl vom Grafen, der seinem Vater ähnelt, als auch von den beiden Frauen fasziniert. Melusine hingegen interessiert sich für Dubslav und die Geheimnisse um den Stechlinsee. Sie lädt Woldemar zu einer Dampferfahrt zum "Eierhäuschen" auf der Spree ein, zusammen mit ihrem Vater, ihrer Schwester und einem weiteren adligen Ehepaar, das bei den Barbys verkehrt. Kurz darauf kommt es zu einer Versammlung in Stechlin, auf der Dubslav zum konservativen Kandidaten für eine Nachwahl zum Reichstag gekürt wird. Die Wahl wird schließlich durchgeführt und endet mit einem deutlichen Sieg des sozialdemokratischen Kandidaten. Dubslav ist insgeheim erleichtert, die Wahl verloren zu haben, und kehrt nach Stechlin zurück. Nach einer Mission im englischen Königshaus verloben sich Woldemar und Armgard. Die Feier findet mit Melusine und zahlreichen Gästen an den Weihnachtsfeiertagen in Stechlin, die Hochzeit Ende Februar im Hause Barby statt. © Gemeinfrei (P)1976 SWR Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

Un Cœur simple Livre Audio par Gustave Flaubert

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Un Cœur simple Auteur: Gustave Flaubert Narrateur: Alain Couchot Format: Unabridged Durée: 1 hr and 23 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 02-26-14 Éditeur: Audiolude Evaluation: 5 sur 5 sur 5 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Un Cœur simple est une nouvelle de Gustave Flaubert, parue dans le recueil Trois Contes en 1877. L'auteur y dépeint la vie d'une domestique de campagne dans la Normandie du dix-neuvième siècle. Gustave Flaubert s'inspire en fait de la vie de la servante de ses parents, qui l'éleva, et fut ensuite sa domestique pendant plus de 50 ans. Gustave Flaubert résume lui-même ainsi Un Cœur simple : "L'histoire d'Un cœur simple est tout bonnement le récit d'une vie obscure, celle d'une pauvre fille de campagne dévote mais mystique, dévouée sans exaltation et tendre comme du pain frais. Elle aime successivement un homme, les enfants de sa maîtresse, un neveu, un vieillard qu'elle soigne, puis son perroquet : quand le perroquet est mort, elle le fait empailler, et, mourant à son tour, elle confond le perroquet avec le Saint-Esprit. Ce n'est nullement ironique comme vous le supposez, mais au contraire très sérieux et très triste. Je veux apitoyer, faire pleurer les âmes sensibles, en étant une moi-même." © Domaine public (P)2014 Audiolude Avis des membres: A Simple Treasure Go with Flaubert on his little journey, and boy, do you get a payoff! He turns his scientific lens on Felicite, an uneducated peasant woman, and slowly pulls us inside her thoughts and feelings. But what begins as a coolly objective study slowly turns into an act of love. Here is a woman who lives at the opposite extreme from the secular and scientific world of the author; she inhabits an almost primitive worlds of dreams and religious devotion. It might seem slow going as we follow the course of her life; no striking events are related. But let yourself walk with her through these brief pages and treat yourself to the magnificent conclusion. It's a good way to get ready for Madame Bovary. Un cur simple L'histoire de ce livre est somme toute assez simple, comme l'indique son titre finalement. L'intért de le lire se situe plutt au niveau de l'écriture. Faubert à une plume magique et son imagination est particulièrement féconde dans ses descriptions situationnelles. Five Stars Flaubert at his best. Five Stars Easy to comprehend. It had been awhile since I read Flaubert, and I like the author very much. The "simple heart" of the book's subject is too simple ... The "simple heart" of the book's subject is too simple, incapable of artifice, malice, or planning. One is led to believe that she is slightly retarded.

The Dream of a Ridiculous Man Audiobook by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Dream of a Ridiculous Man Author: Fyodor Dostoevsky Narrator: Walter Zimmerman Format: Unabridged Length: 1 hr and 2 mins Language: English Release date: 07-03-17 Publisher: Jimcin Recordings Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 83 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: The Dream of a Ridiculous Man is one of his best short pieces. No less a writer than Virginia Woolf says of Dostoevsky, "Out of Shakespeare there is no more exciting reading." Editorial Reviews: Fyodor Dostoevskys penultimate serial plays like a super-concentrated version of his most famous works from the 1860s and '70s. The story follows a man perhaps even more brooding, deranged, and paranoid than Dostoevskys most famous anti-heroes, a man whos very thoughts are so numerous and twisted that they seem to nullify him, rendering his life meaningless. On his way to kill himself, the ridiculous man is struck by a chance encounter with a young girl, which in turn prompts a life-altering vision of paradise. Performer Walter Zimmermans fluid, deliberate style brings clarity and tempo to the labyrinthine psychoanalytics for which Dostoevsky is famous. Through his tortuously absurd protagonist, the authors telltale meditations on utopia, nihilism, and spirituality are all expounded to satirically outrageous conclusions. Members Reviews: Inspiring Not perfect, but well written and well thought out. If you like Dostoevsky, you'll like this. An Alternative to This Narration Any additional comments? I'm sorry to say I couldn't enjoy Walter Zimmerman's narration. I've found this same story in a small, inexpensive collection of Dostoyevsky short stories called "A Disgraceful Affair." Since it isn't obvoius which stories that collection contains (odd to me, since Dream of a Ridiculous Man is pretty famous and I'd think the collection would sell better if they'd put it up front), I thought I'd come here and recommend that one as an alternative.The narrators for that collection are Michael Page and Kirby Heyborne, and I'm not sure which reads Dream of a Ridiculous Man. The performance there is a bit more manic than the voice I "hear" when I read Dostoyevsky, but it's a worthy intepretation.Anyway, if you want to give a different narrator a shot at this great story, punch "A Disgraceful Affair" into the search engine. I don't know the other stories it contains except the very early one called "White Nights," which is also lovely. The story was great The story was great the narrator not so much... I suggest listening to the story but looking for a different narrator Dostoyevsky Gem Any additional comments? What a wonderful, challenging, philosophical, fantastical short story by Dostoyevsky. The narrator is very clear and well-paced. Audio quality is OK. Incredibly imaginative Dostoevsky's gift as a story-teller is on display in "The Dream of a Ridiculous Man". Zimmerman is ideal for narrating FD. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Moll Flanders Audiobook by Daniel Defoe

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Moll Flanders Author: Daniel Defoe Narrator: Virginia Leishman Format: Unabridged Length: 12 hrs and 45 mins Language: English Release date: 08-29-11 Publisher: Recorded Books Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 44 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Daniel Defoes novel is a delightful 18th century classic. Called the truest realism in English literature and the tale of a hot, earthy wench, it meets both expectations while also offering a remarkable portrayal of an ingenious mind. Moll is born in Newgate prison to a petty thief and is soon left at the mercy of whoever will take her in. From this unfavorable beginning, the lusty, resourceful Moll loves and bargains her way from rags to riches, from prostitution in the streets of London to prosperity on a Virginia plantation. Along the way, she offers a charmingly candid view of her life and times. His colorful characters like Robinson Crusoe earned Daniel Defoe instant popular acclaim. In Moll Flanders, he created a beautiful woman who still holds a unique place in British literature. Through Virginia Leishmans sparkling narration, she steps from the pages full of exuberance and spontaneity. Editorial Reviews: Moll Flanders was, according to the long title of this work, "twelve year a Whore, five time a Wife (whereof once to her own brother), twelve year a Thief, eight year a transported Felon in Virginia," etc. Virginia Leishman's rendering of this novel is virtually flawless; it's well modulated, with no mispronunciations, stumbles or pauses. Still, it must be said that she seems overly controlled, too flat, more suitable for Jane Austen's well-appointed sitting rooms than for Moll Flanders' rumpled sheets. Earthiness, sensuality, high drama in the storytelling are needed to breathe excitement into an exciting narrative. Members Reviews: Excellent Narration of Quite and Odd Book The best part of this book is the historical perspective of just how bawdy and irreverent a book written in 1722 could be. The narration is particularly good, often rising to an excellent performance (not just a reading). To a listener with a modern perspective there is little sensational, exciting or even very amusing about Moll Flanders. I had an occasional chuckle or sigh and I learned some things, but not very often. I am sure when this was written it was much more exciting than it now seems. I liked Robinson Crusoe and A Journal of the Plague Year quite a bit better than Moll Flanders. This is very dated, but is not at all badly written, and is historically interesting. A Classic that is timeless and almost poetry Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? I love this book! It a rare account of women's trials in the late 17th century, but oddly those trials still exist today. Good versus evil is a theme throughout. This novel helps explain that evil has 2 categories; evil for neccesity and evil for evil's sake. It causes the reader to question if the first is really evil? What was one of the most memorable moments of Moll Flanders? Moll Flander's redemption and personal awareness of the choices that she's made while in Newgate. Which scene was your favorite? I loved the scene when Moll helps one of her husbands escape. Her love of men despite their ill treatment of her is dumbfounding. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? The way this book was written made me feel as though I was listening to music.

Roman "rustique" ancré dans le Berry autour de son cher Nohant qu'elle a toujours autant de joie à faire découvrir à Frédéric Chopin. Région qu'il aime en retour, à sa façon un peu distante, parce que l'âme de la vallée noire lui parle un peu de Pologne, songe toujours entrevu, terre de son âme sempiternellement exilé ! L'auteure Née Aurore Dupin en 1804 à Paris, connut une enfance heureusement dissipée à Nohant (Indre) au côté de sa grand-mère paternelle. De son mariage, à l'âge de dix-huit ans, avec Casimir Dudevant, elle eut deux enfants, Maurice et Solange. Pourtant, elle ne devait pas tarder à suivre à Paris le jeune écrivain Jules Sandeau, et à commencer une vie légendaire de "garçonne" mondaine et artiste. Ces années romantiques, socialisantes, révolutionnaires imposèrent son nom de femme libre et de romancière engagée. Après sa liaison avec Musset vint le temps de Chopin... Après l'amère défaite de 1848, elle se réfugie à Nohant, retrouve la famille de Maurice, ne vit plus que d'amitié et écrit, entre autres, ses romans berrichons. Elle meurt le 8 juin 1876.

Theatre Works Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 9 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Molière wrote some of the most durable and penetrating comedies of all time. The Imaginary Cuckold and The School for Husbands are two of his grand farces of marriage and misunderstanding, one set in Paris and the other in the provinces. Translated by Richard Wilbur. A full-cast performance featuring Brian Bedford, Emily Bergl, Dakin Matthews, Juliet Mills, Christopher Neame, Lloyd Owen, Moira Quirk, Darren Richardson, Carolyn Seymour, Alan Shearman, Rhashan Stone, Olivia Williams and Joanne Whalley. Editorial Reviews: Two of Molière's most popular plays see a modern performance from a talented cast in this live recording from L.A. Theatre Works. The School For Husbands is a farce centering around the suitors of two sisters, both of whom employ very different methods to secure their affection, while The Imaginary Cuckold is a relationship comedy about mistaken identity. Both plays benefit from a spirited and humorous delivery from Tony award-winning actor Brian Bedford and a supporting cast including Emily Bergl, Dakin Matthews, and Juliet Mills. Listeners will find these two works by Molière both wise and hilarious. Members Reviews: : ) A must!!! :) A must!!! Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Cossacks Audiobook by Leo Tolstoy

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Cossacks Author: Leo Tolstoy Narrator: David Thorn Format: Unabridged Length: 7 hrs and 17 mins Language: English Release date: 01-26-06 Publisher: Blackstone Audio, Inc. Ratings: 3.5 of 5 out of 27 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: In the setting of what is present-day Kazakhstan, Tolstoy examines two psychological problems. The first dilemma is that of a young man who desires both fulfilling love and a place as a respected member of society. The other is the difficulty of a primitive society to accept domination by a higher culture that has no understanding of the traditions it asks its colonists to cast aside. One of Tolstoy's lesser-known novels, The Cossacks is one of the finest pictures of Cossack society in all of Russian literature. Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude. Members Reviews: Quick way to try Tolstoy I can't agree with Chris above. Somebody has to translate Tolstoy into English or most of us in the US couldn't read his books. For example, I loved the Audible version of Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment" but had a hard time following "The Brothers Karamazov." A professor friend of mine read a different translation and it's one of his favorites. This book could be a quick way to see if you want to do "War and Peace". The Cockney Cossacks. Why Blackstone Audiobooks' reader felt the need to anglicanize this title, employing ridiculous British accents to define the relative social classes of its Russian characters, is beyond this listener's understanding. Add to that the nauseating synthesizer interstitial music which separates the chapters and you end up with a patronizing Mary Poppins-esque Tolstoy indeed. Do not waste your money on this recording unless such esthetic "choices" appeal to you. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

He is sickly, dressed in rags, short on money, and talks to himself, but he is also handsome, proud, and intelligent. He is contemplating committing an awful crime, but the nature of the crime is not yet clear. He goes to the apartment of an old pawnbroker, Alyona Ivanovna, to get money for a watch and to plan the crime. Afterward, he stops for a drink at a tavern, where he meets a man named Marmeladov, who, in a fit of drunkenness, has abandoned his job and proceeded on a five-day drinking binge, afraid to return home to his family. Marmeladov tells Raskolnikov about his sickly wife, Katerina Ivanovna, and his daughter, Sonya, who has been forced into prostitution to support the family. Raskolnikov walks with Marmeladov to Marmeladov's apartment, where he meets Katerina and sees firsthand the squalid conditions in which they live. The next day, Raskolnikov receives a letter from his mother informing him that his sister, Dunya, is engaged to a government official named Luzhin and that they are all moving to St. Petersburg. He goes to another tavern, where he overhears a student talking about how society would be better off if the old pawnbroker Alyona Ivanovna were dead. Later, in the streets, Raskolnikov hears that the pawnbroker will be alone in her apartment the next evening. He sleeps fitfully and wakes up the next day, finds an ax, and fashions a fake item to pawn to distract the pawnbroker. That night, he goes to her apartment and kills her. While he is rummaging through her bedroom, looking for money, her sister walks in, and Raskolnikov kills her as well. He barely escapes from the apartment without being seen, then returns to his apartment and collapses on the sofa. Thus begins Crime and Punishment with all the twists and turns and philosophical questions that permeate Dostoyevsky's writing. A world classic! Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. Members Reviews: Great Book, but... I loved this story, it's slow and methodical but I like that. Only minor problem I had is with audio editing. There were too many repeat phrases at times, and at times rough seams between the recorded takes, I guess. Just wish they would have taken the time to edit it better. But that's just a minor side note. I loved the narrator and the story. I'll miss it Must listen. Very enjoyable. Could be hard to comprehend. but. if able to fallow the story . It will be very rewarding. story starts to fall together after very long introduction of the characters. primarily main characters. never the less. every character gets it's fill as a story progresses. and after 1/4 of the book. you will be drawn to this book. Intesipating next move of the characters and unfolding of the story. At the end of the book. Without spoiling the book. I was satisfied with the ending. Which is rare occasion for me... The reader is so horrid Big fan of the book was looking forward to hearing it, but the reader is so terrible its really impossible to listen to it... audible has one narrator, the audio actually names a different narrator... but this guy makes you want to tune him out... Great Russian classic I always loved this book and now enjoyed listening to it too.

Candide Audiobook by Voltaire

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Candide Author: Voltaire Narrator: Donal Donnelly Format: Unabridged Length: 4 hrs and 15 mins Language: English Release date: 12-16-99 Publisher: Recorded Books Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 93 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: From the satirical pen of one of France's greatest cynics comes the story of Candide - young, innocent, guileless - who is cast upon the world after Baron Thunder-ten-trockh learns that his lusty daughter, Cunegonde, has tried to seduce the young man. The novel chronicles Candide's adventures with his blindly optimistic tutor, Dr. Pangloss, through any number of disastrous experiences, as they search for the answers to life's perennial questions. A champion of the Enlightenment, Voltaire (1694-1778) was quick to attack tyranny, fanaticism, intolerance, superstition, and prejudice wherever they occurred. His merciless satire, unorthodox views, and enmity to organized religion were a source of irritation to the political and religious authorities of his day. Editorial Reviews: Voltaires pioneering work of dark humor is at turns mordant and fantastic, dystopian yet comedic. Candide has staked its spot at the intersection of philosophy and folklore. Raised on the altruism that "all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds", the antihero Candide endures war, natural disaster, and forced servitude along his heedless journey. Actor Donal Donnellys silky baritone provides a fitting suitor for this fast-paced, satirical allegory. As Donnelly built a reputable film career with roles in The Godfather trilogy and The Dead, he quietly put together an impressive résumé in the emergent field of audiobook performance. Recorded in 1981, Donnellys Candide stands the test of time: The Irishmans wry but eloquent delivery befits the baroque fatalism of Voltaires misadventure. Members Reviews: Voltaire's Classic This classic by Voltaire is wonderful satire. Candide, the young illegitimate nephew of a German baron, is taught by his teacher/philosopher Pangloss that this world is ?the best of all possible worlds.? Candide falls in love with Cunegonde, the baron?s young daughter. When their love is discovered, Candide is expelled from his home, and the fun starts. The entire novel is then consumed with tongue-in-cheek melodrama of Candide?s worldwide attempt to find and marry Cunegonde, who is, of course, constantly on the move. Early on in the story we realize that the important aspects of Voltaire?s novel are not the plot?s details but the higher themes: the ?real-world? tragedy which disproves Pangloss? initial optimistic teachings, the hypocrisy of the day?s religious theologians, and the inability of money to solve problems. Voltaire?s wit shines in his masterpiece, and while this book is not for young children, it does have broad appeal, especially due to its short length. Reader Donal Donnelly does a good job of characterizing the voices, especially the sleazy and decrepit characters. Donnelly?s British accent proves to be very entertaining and a joy to listen to. an absolute hoot If you've not read this already, run (don't walk) to get yourself a copy. Voltaire wrote it 250 years ago and it doesn't appear to have aged much since (I was laughing out loud on the subway). Although it may offend the sensibilities of some (lots of body language; lots of anti-clericalism; lots of blood and guts and rape and pillaging; satirical and hilarious. No wonder they didn't have us read him in my suburban High School. Fresh and funny The reader is very good. The story is wonderful. One of my favorite audible books.

Unfortunately, Prince Valkovsky has plans for Alyosha's future and those plans don't include Natasha. The prince sets out to destroy his son's relationship so that he can see him safely married to the wealthy heiress, Katya. Will love endure or will the evil prince get his way?

Un cœur simple Livre Audio par Gustave Flaubert

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Un cœur simple Auteur: Gustave Flaubert Narrateur: Marie-Christine Barrault Format: Unabridged Durée: 1 hr and 15 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 08-21-09 Éditeur: Audiolib Genres: Classics, European Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: "L'histoire d'un cœur simple est le récit d'une vie obscure, celle d'une pauvre fille de campagne, dévote mais mystique, dévouée sans exaltation et tendre comme le pain frais. Elle aime successivement un homme, les enfants de sa maîtresse, un neveu, un vieillard qu'elle soigne, puis son perroquet ; quand son perroquet est mort, elle le fait empailler et, en mourant à son tour, elle confond le perroquet avec le Saint-Esprit. Cela n'est nullement ironique comme vous le supposez, mais au contraire très sérieux et très triste." Gustave Flaubert. Un cœur simple a été publié pour la première fois en 1877 dans le recueil Trois Contes. L'auteur Décédé d'une attaque à Croisset en 1880, est né en 1821 à Rouen. Comme Marcel Proust, il était le second fils d'un médecin de renom et, comme Proust encore, quelque peu "l'idiot de la famille". Avec seulement six titres, on sait quel ensemble sans pareil un tel "emprunté" donna à la littérature. Le roman dit moderne doit tout ou presque à cet "homme-plume". La narratrice est la nièce de Jean-Louis Barrault. Elle entre au cours Simon en 1963 puis est admise au Conservatoire d'Art dramatique en 1964. Pendant deux ans (1966/1968), elle se consacre uniquement au théâtre. Elle débute au cinéma en 1969. Depuis, sur les planches, sur le petit écran de la TV, au cinéma, Marie-Christine Barrault poursuit une carrière prestigieuse. © et (P) Audiolib, 2009 Avis des membres: A Simple Treasure Go with Flaubert on his little journey, and boy, do you get a payoff! He turns his scientific lens on Felicite, an uneducated peasant woman, and slowly pulls us inside her thoughts and feelings. But what begins as a coolly objective study slowly turns into an act of love. Here is a woman who lives at the opposite extreme from the secular and scientific world of the author; she inhabits an almost primitive worlds of dreams and religious devotion. It might seem slow going as we follow the course of her life; no striking events are related. But let yourself walk with her through these brief pages and treat yourself to the magnificent conclusion. It's a good way to get ready for Madame Bovary. Un cur simple L'histoire de ce livre est somme toute assez simple, comme l'indique son titre finalement. L'intért de le lire se situe plutt au niveau de l'écriture. Faubert à une plume magique et son imagination est particulièrement féconde dans ses descriptions situationnelles. Five Stars Flaubert at his best. Five Stars Easy to comprehend. It had been awhile since I read Flaubert, and I like the author very much. The "simple heart" of the book's subject is too simple ... The "simple heart" of the book's subject is too simple, incapable of artifice, malice, or planning. One is led to believe that she is slightly retarded.

Members Reviews: Anderledes historie men godt fortalt Any additional comments? Bogen er skrevet som, en mand der sidder p en bar og fortller "lseren" sin historie, det skal man lige vende sig til. Bogen bliver bedre efter starten,men slutter s lidt irreterende synes jeg. Bogen er rigtig godt lst op, og virker nsten som hvis man sad p en bar og lyttede til en mand der fortalte hans livs historie. Jeg kunne godt identificere forfatteren, og synes der var nogle gode pointer i bogen. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Brdrene Karamazov [The Brothers Karamazov] Author: Fjodor M. Dostojevskij Narrator: Karsten Pharao Format: Unabridged Length: 31 hrs and 21 mins Language: English Release date: 02-25-15 Publisher: Viatone Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Omdrejningspunktet for romanens handling er mordet p den gamle vellystning Karamazov. Opklaringen af mordet er en psykologisk thriller, der er spndende som en kriminalroman. Vi flger hans tre snner, der p trovrdig vis reprsenterer forskellige ideologier: Den ldste, Mitja, er ligesom faderen en udsvvende levemand, den nstldste, Ivan, er den intellektuelle ateist og nihilist og den yngste, Aljosja, er den barmhjertige og godhjertede kristne, der minder om Fyrst Mysjkin i Idioten. Udover brdrene skildres deres omgangskreds, hvor vi foruden to besttende kvinder mder alle grene af samfundet: overklassen, de fattige, klosterbrdrene og godsejerne.Brdrene Karamazov var den sidste og strste roman, Dostojevskij skrev, og betragtes ikke alene som Dostojevskijs strste vrk, men ogs som et af verdenslitteraturens. Det er en utrolig roman om godt og ondt, tro og tvivl, liv og dd med dybdeborende psykologiske portrtter, der viser menneskets sammensatte vsen p godt og ondt. Som i hans tidligere romaner tages der afstand fra nihilistiske holdninger, og i stedet fremhves betydningen af skyld, ansvar og medflelse. Stilen er kendetegnet ved karakterskildringer gennem en mangestemmig, ofte hjspndt dialog med en dramatisk, fngslende handling. Please note: This audiobook is in Danish. Critic Reviews: "Den mest storslede roman, der nogensinde er skrevet." (Sigmund Freud) "De to kapitler i femte bog om Ivans 'oprr' og Legenden om Storinkvisatoren nr hjder, der sjldent er blevet matchet og bestemt aldrig overget."

On lui doit également des poèmes divers, des pièces de théâtre et des livrets d'opéra qui confirment son ambition de moraliste. Il est reçu à l'Académie française en 1684. C'est en s'inspirant des fabulistes de l'Antiquité gréco-latine et en particulier d'Ésope, qu'il écrit les Fables qui font sa renommée. Le brillant maniement des vers et la visée morale des textes, parfois plus complexes qu'il n'y paraît à la première lecture, ont déterminé le succès de cette œuvre à part et les Fables de La Fontaine sont toujours considérées comme un des plus grands chefs-d'œuvre de la littérature française. Ces 100 citations visent à donner accès à son œuvre monumentale par une sélection de ses pensées les plus marquantes, dans un format accessible à tous. Une citation est plus qu'un extrait d'un propos, ce peut être un trait d'esprit, un résumé d'une pensée complexe, une maxime, une ouverture sur une réflexion plus profonde. ©2016 Compagnie du Savoir (P)2016 Compagnie du Savoir Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Dead Audiobook by James Joyce

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Dead Author: James Joyce Narrator: Jim Killavey Format: Unabridged Length: 1 hr and 36 mins Language: English Release date: 03-04-11 Publisher: Jimcin Recordings Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 25 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: James Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers of the early 20th century. Although best known for Ulysses and The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, he also wrote a number of shorter works. Chief among them is "The Dead," which was published as part of a collection in 1914. Like many of his stories, "The Dead" develops toward a moment of painful self-awareness and spiritual awakening which Joyce described as an "epiphany." Most critics consider this the finest of his short works and often describe it as "a masterpiece." One critic called it "Perhaps the greatest written in the English language." In 1987, John Huston directed a movie version as his last feature film. In 1999 it became a Broadway musical. After a successful run on Broadway, the play won a Tony for Best Book. Critic Reviews: "With a sure touch, beautiful language and the omniscient and impersonal narrator favored in the last century, The Dead is the equivalent of an entire Flaubert or Balzac novel encapsulated in a short story. It shares with novels of hundreds of pages the capture of an entire social world....There is an unforced beauty in the dialog unparalleled by other modern authors." (The Ethical Spectacle) Members Reviews: Simple ... but really good A very simple theme ... an amusing story ... and an absolutely deep ending ... the difference between the concept of living and mere surviving ... would recommend it to anyone Fantastic Joyce-Lite This is one of Joyces best and most approachable works. I like Ulysses but it takes a lot of concentration. The Dead has many of the best aspects of Joyce but is short and easy to listen to. The narration was quite good, but Joyce is particularly challenging to read aloud, and this narration was not quite up to the writing. If you havent read any Joyce, this is an excellent place to start. Good for what it was I am not a big fan of this older style but this story was alright. Brilliant short story ruined by poor narration 'The Dead' is wonderfully rich and affecting and is rightly regarded as a masterpiece of short fiction. Unfortunately it is spoiled here by having what sounds like an American narrator who, for me, fails to express these qualities. To compound this, there are also some absolute howlers of mispronunciation (e.g. Connaught/ Connacht). This beautiful story deserves an excellent, standalone, unabridged reading by one of the many superb Irish actors who could do it real justice. Now that the copyright on Joyce's work has been lifted, how about it? Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Metamorphosis and Other Stories Author: Franz Kafka, Guy de Maupassant Narrator: Tom Whitworth Format: Unabridged Length: 4 hrs and 35 mins Language: English Release date: 02-07-06 Publisher: Tantor Audio Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 73 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: The story has been interpreted as everything from religious allegory to psychoanalytic case history, but works because, though written nearly a century ago, Kafka's fantastic imaginings convey a reality of their own. We surrender to Gregor's experience, which in a way becomes ours. Also included are stories by Guy de Maupassant: "The Englishman", "The Piece of String", "The Necklace", "A Crisis", "The Will", "Love", "The Inn" and "Was it a Dream". Translated by Stanley Appelbaum. Editorial Reviews: Tom Whitworth delivers magnificent performances of work by Franz Kafka and Guy de Maupassant on this audiobook, The Metamorphosis and Other Stories. In the novella The Metamorphosis, protagonist Gregor Samsa wakes one morning to discover that he has transformed into a giant insect, putting tremendous pressure on his family. Whitworth is equally as compelling in his interpretations of de Maupassants short stories, which include: "The Englishman", "The Piece of String", "The Necklace", "A Crisis", "The Will", "Love", "The Inn", and "Was it a Dream?". Members Reviews: Kafka is STILL the Man! Wonderful........... Check out 'Change' by Chris Selna Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not? This is an OK version. I've downloaded and listening to many versions of the Metamorphosis What other book might you compare The Metamorphosis and Other Stories to and why? Change by Chris Selna. Hysterical, heart breaking and shocking Who can hate a classic? Or an accent! What did you love best about The Metamorphosis and Other Stories? The stories within this book are as strange as anything I've ever read (or rather, heard) in my life! However, reading from a higher-level philosophical standpoint, it is full of mind boggling depictions of human life and priorities which many short stories lack. Yet, it still is full of intrigue and plot, though one might have thought otherwise! And, of course, Tom Whitworth's reading was wonderful! His voice is calm and deep and full of character and life! Plus, he's got a manly british accent, which is soothing to the ears. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

A poverty stricken young man, seeing his family making sacrifices for him, is faced with an opportunity to solve his financial problems with one simple but horrifying act: the murder of a pawnbroker. She is, he feels, just a parasite on society. But does the end justify the means? (P)1994 NAXOS AudioBooks Ltd.; ©1994 NAXOS AudioBooks Ltd. Members Reviews: All Time Classic I decided to get this book after listening to Phillip Yancy's, "The Jesus I Never Knew." Mr. Yancy refers to Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy in the contrast of God's law (Tolstoy) and His grace (Dostoyevsky). I read "Crime & Punishment" more than 30 years ago and remembered that it had a profound affect on me as a young man seeking meaning in life. The book is, of course, a classic--just as I recalled. The audio book is exceptionally well read. I really liked the slow and calculated delivery. I read along with many pages. Accordingly, I appreciated the reader's excellent command of the Russian names. I highly recommend this all time classic. If you haven't read it, helps to read a summary! I had not read this 'classic' but thought at least listening to this abridged version would offer a decent overview--which it did. The challenge, though, is there are many characters FREQUENTLY coming in/out of the plot with long, Russian names thus following the story can be difficult. Several times I had to read the Wikipedia entry which has a summary and character snapshots to follow along. Overall, a fine presentation. Forget Crime, Listening is Punishment Enough. This book took me forever to get through. Because I'm a committed person and like to finish what I start, I endured until the very end of this book. This was the slowest, most boring, depressing book I've ever listened to. Someone could tell this story in about 2 pages but it drags on and on until you can't take it anymore. The Russian names are so confusing that you don't know who the characters are even by the very end. The narrator was very monotone and made it even more boring. Put needles in your eyes, it will be less punishing. I hate abridgements but listen to this I don't normally buy abridged books but heard part of this elsewhere and wanted to listen to the whole of Michael Sheen's performance. It's a tour de force. I've never heard better or more varied characterisation. He also brings off the generally fevered atmosphere of Dostoevsky brilliantly. Somebody sign him up to do a complete book or twelve.

Chacune de ces 243 fables est une petite histoire, avec des mots simples, et contient des vérités qui servent de leçons. Il y a un peu de nous, un peu des autres, un peu de tous, dans chacune des fables. Elles nous parlent, nous nous y reconnaissons. Elles croquent avec humour et finesse nos mœurs et nos faiblesses, nos travers et nos défauts, nos petites lâchetés comme nos grandes vanités. Les puissants qui nous gouvernent ne sont pas épargnés, tout autant que tout un chacun. Comme le dit si bien l'auteur, Jean de La Fontaine, "tout parle en mon ouvrage, et même les poissons, ce qu'ils disent s'adresse à tous tant que nous sommes; je me sers d'animaux pour instruire les hommes". C'est à notre connaissance, la première fois que les Fables de Jean de la Fontaine sont intégralement enregistrées et mises à la disposition du public, plus de 350 ans après leur création. Enfin, pourrait on dire! Pourquoi une intégrale? Pour bien des raisons, mais nous citerons tout simplement Mme de Sévigné qui disait déjà en 1679 à un ami:"Faites vous envoyer promptement les Fables de La Fontaine: elles sont divines. On croit d'abord en distinguer quelques unes, et, à force de les relire, on les trouve toutes bonnes". La brièveté, cette simplicité magnifique, est l'âme du conte. La structure de chaque fable est simple: le récit, une description, un discours ou un dialogue, une action, une peinture des caractères, et la moralité. Les fables existent depuis la plus haute antiquité. Aujourd'hui encore, Les Fables de La Fontaine nous parlent par leur justesse et leur universalité. © Domaine public (P)2015 Compagnie du Savoir Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

This audio book was narrated in London by experienced British stage actor Robert Maskell at a voice recording studio renowned for high production values. The stories were originally featured not in a book at all, but were written as installments in a London magazine called The Strand. Penned as always from the point of view of the ever-loyal Dr. Watson, these concise tales shed early light on Sherlock Holmes' analytical genius. Throughout the 12 stories we see Holmes at his incisive and eccentric best. All groups within Victorian society feature, from European aristocrats to travelling Gypsies, mad doctors to innocent ladies. These are truly classic stories and a perfect introduction to the fascinating world of Sherlock Holmes. The stories are presented in order that they were originally published: Members Reviews: Now I see why people love these books! Great stories! and my first time ever hearing Sherlock. and I now why ever one loves it! My dad was a huge fan, so I kind of wanted to connect with him hearing these stories! if your a fan, totally worth the credit! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. Classic Stories With Superb Narration Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Highly recommend Have you listened to any of Robert Maskells other performances before? How does this one compare? No, Loved the boldness of the voice which met the uniqueness of the stories. Did a great job Any additional comments? I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review Thoroughly Enjoyable Version of these Classics I really enjoyed these stories. I had not before read or heard them all and they were all first rate tales of Sherlock Holmes at his best. The Man with the Twisted Lip is the only one that I guessed right away. All the others took me well into the story to get a bead on the real culprit. My favorites were A Scandal in Bohemia because of the ending, The Adventure of the Red-Headed League and the Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb largely due to the impeccable narration, and the Adventure of the Beryl Coronet because of the outcome. Robert Maskell really does an excellent rendition of these stories. His tone, speed, and cadence and the way he reads the exciting parts are really unsurpassed. And his voices are beyond compare. At times, I forgot only one person was narrating! I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review. A most singular audiobook... What did you love best about The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes? There are several singular points about this audiobook and I would not have missed it for a good deal. 'The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle', 'The Man with the Twisted Lip' and 'The Boscombe Valley Mystery' are, in particular, highly memorable pieces and among the better Sherlock Holmes stories I have read. Would you be willing to try another book from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle? Why or why not? Four of the twelve stories within this volume were later selected by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to be among his favourite Sherlock Holmes stories.

It satirises the shortcomings of both government and society, including the institution of debtors' prisons, where debtors were imprisoned, unable to work, until they repaid their debts. The prison in this case is the Marshalsea, where Dickens's own father had been imprisoned. Dickens is also critical of the lack of a social safety net, the treatment and safety of industrial workers, as well the bureaucracy of the British Treasury, in the form of his fictional 'Circumlocution Office'. In addition he satirises the stratification of society that results from the British class system." - Wikipedia Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Gottfried Keller wählte seine Gestalten vorwiegend aus dem Bürgertum, idealisierte sie aber nicht, sondern zeigte bei aller Liebenswürdigkeit auch ihre Schwächen und Fehler auf. So auch in "Kleider machen Leute", wo er die Heuchelei der Goldacher Bürger mit Ernst, Spott und Humor entlarvt und den aufrechten Schneider Strapinski schließlich doch sein Glück finden lässt. >> Diese ungekürzte Hörbuch-Fassung wird Ihnen exklusiv von Audible präsentiert und ist ausschließlich im Download erhältlich. © Gemeinfrei (P)2014 Audible GmbH Mitglieder Bewertungen: Three Stars zu klein ist das buch!

It is not a long book and should be a quick listen. I licked the classic nature of the tragedy of the story. It reminded me of other Puccini operas and of some classic Shakespeare's plot lines.

A Modest Proposal Audiobook by Jonathan Swift

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: A Modest Proposal Author: Jonathan Swift Narrator: Robert Blumenfeld Format: Unabridged Length: 9 hrs and 14 mins Language: English Release date: 01-24-11 Publisher: Audible Studios Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 20 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland From Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public, commonly referred to as A Modest Proposal, is a Juvenalian satirical essay written and published anonymously by Jonathan Swift in 1729. Swift suggests in his essay that the impoverished Irish might ease their economic troubles by selling children as food for rich gentlemen and ladies. By doing this he mocks the authority of the British officials. A Modest Proposal is included in many literature programs as an example of early modern western satire. It also serves as an exceptional introduction to the concept and use of argumentative language, lending itself well to secondary and post-secondary essay courses. Outside of the realm of English studies, A Modest Proposal is a relevant piece included in many comparative and global literature and history courses, as well as those of numerous other disciplines in the arts, humanities, and even the social sciences. Editorial Reviews: Narrator Robert Blumenfeld understands the sardonic attitude of Jonathan Swift's Juvenalian satire perfectly, and he utilizes a pompous, flowery tone in his performance with obvious relish. Swift suggests in his essay that the impoverished Irish might improve their lot by selling their children as food for rich gentlemen and ladies. Much like Swift, Blumenfeld doesn't hold back and describes the possible preparation styles for the children and calculations showing the financial benefits of cannibalism with humorously exaggerated condescension and smugness. Listeners will be truly entertained by his fun approach to Swift's most famous work. Members Reviews: Not a bad proposal at all This audiobook is a collection of Swift's essays, letters, and other works. The best known of these is "A Modest Proposal" wherein the author puts forward a rather original scheme to solve the problem of the poor children of Ireland. As this is a renowned piece of literature most of you probably know what he had in mind, if you do not, the fork on the cover can be taken as a hint. I am not sure if one was supposed to enjoy this bitter satire but I did. However, if I were to pick my personal favourite, I would go for "Directions To Servants" which was not bitter at all and made me burst out laughing every now and again. There were some minor pieces I could not get into the spirit of, particularly the letters, many of which felt "out of context". You cannot help admiring the language though. On the whole I can recommend this audiobook. Not everything in it is brilliant but there are some real gems to be found. Very nice collection of letters/essays of J Swift The audiobook give you a very good collection of Jonathan Swift's sermons, short essays, letters, and pranks over his years.

This short text was of tremendous importance in the world of art, for it holds a groundbreaking reflection about artistic creation: what does completion or failure mean, and how is it that technique does not guarantee either. Paul Cézanne famously said "I am Frenhofer", identifying with the old master around which the story revolves. Pablo Picasso himself was absolutely fascinated by the text, so much that he had his studio moved in the Parisian street named in the story; there, he painted his own masterpiece, Guernica. ©2016 Compagnie du Savoir (P)2016 Compagnie du Savoir Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Mais quel "amoureux" - Roland Barthes ! Et quel "diseur" - Fabrice Luchini ! Intelligence - de intellegere, comprendre. Comprendre - de cum prehendere, prendre avec soi, donc aimer... Intelligence de l'amour chez Barthes et amour de l'intelligence chez Luchini : c'est la fusion de ces deux qualités menées à une sorte d'incandescence qui fait de ce livre audio un événement exceptionnel, à la fois une fête du sens et des sens. Plus encore qu'un cadeau, un "don", qui honorera autant ceux qui le font que ceux qui le reçoivent. L'auteur a été, des années 1960 à sa mort en 1980, un des plus éminents représentants de la grande aventure intellectuelle du structuralisme. Du aux , ou à , parmi bien d'autres textes, il a révolutionné la critique littéraire comme le décryptage de notre modernité. Longtemps jugé comme un pur théoricien, on a peu à peu découvert ses qualités d'écrivain, dont ces sont un remarquable exemple. Le narrateur est né à Paris en 1951 et mène une prestigieuse carrière de comédien, tant au cinéma qu'au théâtre. Il est, dans les années 1980, un des interprètes préférés de Rohmer et devient, dans les années 1990, un acteur plébiscité par les réalisateurs et le public. Mais sa grande passion demeure le théâtre. Son amour de la littérature le conduit à dire, sur scène, des textes de Baudelaire, Valéry ou Céline, et la finesse de ses interprétations valent à ces prestations pourtant exigeantes un très grand succès. © Editions du Seuil, 1977 © et (p) Audiolib 2010 Avis des membres: Luchini Perfect! A magnificent book with a perfect voice and narration. A amazing experience. An anatomy of love This is a most wonderful, erudite exploration. It is best in French but the English version is quite scrupulous. An excellent means to understand your own sufferings in love, it provides an anatomy of its stages. The best gift you can give to the suffering, lovers and people you are fond of. Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Borgias Audiobook by Alexandre Dumas

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Borgias Subtitle: Celebrated Crimes, Book 1 Author: Alexandre Dumas Narrator: Robert Bethune Format: Unabridged Length: 8 hrs and 26 mins Language: English Release date: 04-04-14 Publisher: Freshwater Seas Ratings: 3 of 5 out of 7 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: To paraphrase the note from the translator, The Celebrated Crimes of Alexandre Dumas père was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language - has minced no words - to describe violent scenes of violent times. In this, the first of the series, Dumas tells the luridly sexy, amazingly violent, and strikingly amoral story of the three most famous members of the Borgia family - Pope Alexander VI, Lucrezia, and above all Cesare. Never one to allow a mere fact to stand in the way of a good story, Dumas puts all the most sensational accusations made against the Borgias - mostly by their enemies - to the fullest use, which certainly distorts history, but makes for a great tale. Also, he often takes the novelist's approach, giving us details of scenes for which there is no historical record - we are given, for example, a wonderful description of the look on Cesare Borgia's face as he breaks out of his Spanish prison, something not even Cesare himself could have seen, and he was alone at the time. Again, as the translator notes, "The careful, mature reader, for whom the books are intended, will recognize, and allow for, this fact." We're reading Dumas here, not Tuchman or Toynbee. Dumas gives us a sweeping tale of simony, betrayal, connivance, conquest both military and sexual, and above all death - on the battlefield in war, on the streets in brutal murder, in the dark by strangulation, at the table by poison. It is a tale of events and personalities that shook Europe and created the modern myth of the Renaissance prince, so well described by Machiavelli. Enjoy! Note: The modern listener will hear that certain passages in the book are marked by unmistakable anti-Semitism. As it is both useless to deny, and worthwhile to remember, that anti-Semitism was a cultural norm in Dumas' times, those passages have been left as written. Members Reviews: I can't endure any more What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you? The title is a far cry from the story I thought I would be listening to. All about Popes and characters the enter and leave the scene without any substance. Like listening to a conversation about someone else's acquaintances and being left without a clue about these people or even wishing to have a clue. What was most disappointing about Alexandre Dumass story? Subject according to title has not bearing on the story if there is a story. What didnt you like about Robert Bethunes performance? I would go nuts having to read this book to record. He did a fine job. What character would you cut from The Borgias? I would cut the stuff after the beginning to the end. The rest is fine. Any additional comments? DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS TRIPE. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Cette collection de citations présente la pensée de sept figures incontournables du XIXe siècle sous forme concise et accessible. Victor Hugo est l'un des écrivains de langue française les plus importants, et il fut aussi un intellectuel engagé qui joua un rôle majeur dans l'histoire du XIXe siècle. Sa production toucha tous les genres et lui valut un immense succès populaire. Honoré de Balzac est un des maîtres du roman français, qui excella surtout dans la veine du réalisme. Dans ses romans, caractérisés par un style économe et resserré, Stendhal cherche "la vérité, l'âpre vérité" dans le domaine psychologique, et campe essentiellement des jeunes gens aux aspirations romantiques de vitalité, de force du sentiment et de rêve de gloire. Gustave Flaubert a marqué la littérature universelle par la profondeur de ses analyses psychologiques, son souci de réalisme, son regard lucide sur les comportements des individus et de la société, et par la force de son style. Les romans d'aventure d'Alexandre Dumas sont portés par la fougue de son style et son succès est toujours immense. Chateaubriand est l'un des précurseurs du romantisme français, grâce à ses descriptions de la nature et son analyse des sentiments. Alfred de Musset est un des grands écrivains romantiques français, dont le théâtre et la poésie lyrique montrent une sensibilité extrême, une interrogation sur la pureté et la débauche. La pensée de chaque auteur est résumée en 100 citations marquantes et essentielles, faciles à mémoriser et à s'approprier ; ce format concis et accessible est idéal pour la préparation aux examens et aux concours (bac, capes, agrégation...), la culture générale et le développement personnel. ©2017 Compagnie du Savoir (P)2017 Compagnie du Savoir Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

No author in so few words summons so many emotions. Critic Reviews: "Admirably read with a controlled and unsentimental voice that is perfect for this story....Tolstoy's striking word pictures and atmosphere are starkly delivered with an incredible match of voice and style that maximized their devastating effect." (Booklist) Members Reviews: Great quality without great quantity Looking for something worth listening to but with a running time less than a work day? Well, here you go. Listen to it instead of watching a movie one night. Given the brevity of the work, the characterization and plot development are indubitably remarkable... Well I'm getting bored. Look, do you like Tolstoy? Fine, then I think you'll like this. Do you not know if you'll like Tolstoy? Perhaps this, being much easier to finish, is a better litmus than one of his more epic-length works. Vivid! Tolstoy opens the wall to a world we're taught to avoid. He held me there! POWER-HOUSE OF RUSSIAN LIT. Dont let the small size of this book fool you, this is a masterpiece! Highly recommended! A simple, compelling story A sad bureaucrat wastes his life, dreads and then accepts his death. I rated the performance as 1 star not because of the narrator (who gave a fine reading), but because the quality of the sound was abysmal - muddy, and with fluctuations in volume. The latter chapters seemed to be contaminated with another track recorded at low volume, as though there was another story being whispered in the background. A Must Hear ! Great literature reaches in grabs your heart and changes you. This amazing book will do that each time you listen. Beyond the "stars"! Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

In the Ravine and Other Stories Audiobook by Anton Chekhov

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: In the Ravine and Other Stories Author: Anton Chekhov Narrator: Kenneth Branagh Format: Unabridged Length: 3 hrs and 35 mins Language: English Release date: 11-20-09 Publisher: Naxos Audiobooks Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 34 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Here are 11 short stories and one novella by Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of what is acknowledged as a difficult genre. There is the richly comic "Oh! The Public" about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in "The Chorus Girl", and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in "Misery". The other short stories in this collection are: "The Trousseau", "A Story Without a Title", "Children", "Fat and Thin", "The Beggar", "Hush!", "The Orator", and "An Actor's End". Editorial Reviews: Talented actor Kenneth Branagh, most known for his film and television roles in various Shakespeare works, tears into these classic stories with relish. Weaving a tapestry of character voices, Branagh uses accents, pacing, enunciation, and seemingly boundless energy to bring these great Russian works to life. Listeners will find themselves chuckling at times and tearing up at others as Branagh dramatizes Chekhov's deceptively simple plots and characters. The prodigious Branagh is well matched to these literary explorations by the master of the short story. Critic Reviews: "If you want an outstanding reading, in which the narrator's voice brilliantly conveys the speaker's class and the intricate relationships between characters during conversations, you can do no better than to listen to Kenneth Branagh. This great actor mesmerizes as he gasps, chuckles, stutters, and declaims. A must listen." (AudioFile) Members Reviews: Fine Stories about Mother Russia & the Human Heart In the Ravine and Other Stories is a varied collection of eleven short stories and one novella by Anton Chekov. Ranging from 1883 to 1900, this collection demonstrates Chekov's perfect prose, sly humor, understated pathos, cynical insights, medical perceptions, and impressive ability to get into the heads of a variety of people, male and female, old and young, elite and peasant. Each story features a different kind of protagonist, a different point of view, a different mood. Together they offer quite a slice of late 19th century Russian culture (icons, peasants, bribes, alcohol, passions, roubles, etc.) and human behavior (greed, pride, cruelty, love, charity, compassion, etc.). Some of the stories end with an almost provocative abruptness. Some are less interesting than others. Some are devastating.

Como dato importante la versión completa en inglés dura aproximadamente 22 horas, mientras a la versión en español le faltan como 5 horas. Para dar un ejemplo al final del audiolibro, omite el capítulo que describe el último encuentro entre Aramis y D'Artagnan, cuando Aramis regresa a Francia, después de su fuga, como embajador de España. No entiendo porque se promueve este libro como unabridged. Contáctame para cualquier pregunta: inforeq17@gmail.com

Le père Goriot Livre Audio par Honoré de Balzac

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Le père Goriot Auteur: Honoré de Balzac Narrateur: Michel Vuillermoz Format: Unabridged Durée: 5 hrs and 58 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 07-25-16 Éditeur: Éditions Thélème Genres: Classics, European Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Rastignac, resté seul, fit quelques pas vers le haut du cimetière et vit Paris tortueusement couché le long des deux rives de la Seine où commençaient à briller les lumières. Ses yeux s'attachèrent presque avidement entre la colonne Vendôme et le dôme des Invalides, là où vivait ce beau monde dans lequel il avait voulu pénétrer. Il lança sur cette ruche bourdonnante un regard qui semblait par avance pomper le miel, et dit ces mots grandioses : "À nous deux maintenant !" © Domaine public (P)2011 Éditions Thélème Avis des membres: Kindle has opened the world of the classics. As only an intermediate student of French, I had thought the world of classic literature in the original language was closed to me. Not any more. With a downloaded French-English dictionary, one has only to hover over an unknown word for the English definition to appear. To make things even easier, the same book can be downloaded in English so one can re-read the same pages in English as a double-check. At last, the tone and flavour of the original comes alive, and poor old Père Goriot with money-grubbing daughters (think Goneril and Reagan from Shakespeare) appears in all his original pathos. It is a classic, so you know more than one person has found it a worthwhile reading experience. That experience is now open to anyone who has achieved even a modest level of French. Total absorption We live in a new world. A great classic like this, and totally free. Balzac writes in the deep romantic and realistic style of Dickens. The book opens with several pages describing the rooming house in Paris where most of the action takes place. This may not suit some modern readers used to immediate plot development, but the total immersion in place really helped me get into it. And when things get moving, the yarn is quite gripping, and in character with its time, it's filled with meticulous psychological detail and social analysis, juiced up with sex and social climbing. Like Stendhal's "Le Rouge et le Noir," Balzac is interested in the fate of a parvenu, an energetic guy from the edges of society who makes his way to the glittering center using every trick in the book. Jump into the intriguing world of Paris in 1819 - and keep your head above water! Toucant J'ai lu ce roman obligatoirement pendant mes cours de littérature à l'université,sans beaucoup de compréhension,ni d'appréciation. J'ai choisi de le reprendre par curiosité et soin intellectuel personnel. Je pense que le style aussi bien que l'intért de l'histoire soient hors de la portée de la majorité des étudiants universitaires surtout américains inscrits dans des programmes d'études du franais.plus nous avanons dans le temps moins les jeunes ont de la sensibilité pour saisir les grandes classiques de la littérature. Comme Bazac n'y a pas mis d'explosions ni de descriptions grotesques de la mort,il y a peu qui peut attirer l'attention des jeunes gens d'aujourd'hui. Balzac and then George Sand Just say Balzac. Not too be missed. But for the younger generation very very 19th century. However one of the best in the world literature.

Publications Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 12 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: This gloomy book is written in the form of letters exchanged between two cousins, Makar Devushkin and Varvara Dobroselova, who live on the same street in a shockingly deprived part of St. Petersburg Russia. Makar is a lowly clerk, who is being bullied at work and lives in the screened-off corner of someone else's kitchen and Varvara has taken in sewing as a means of avoiding falling into prostitution to make money. Their friendship is touching and sentimental, but it begins to suffer. Will they find their way out of poverty, either by marriage or other means? Will their friendship recover, or will money eventually come between them? This novel deals with themes of extreme poverty and marginalization, and was originally written to raise funds to pay off Dostoevsky's mounting gambling debts, when money was very much on his mind.

Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 55 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Can the Scarlet Pimpernell rescue Deroulede from certain death by guillotine? Will Deroulede forgive Juliette for her betrayal of him? Romance and intrigue abound in this delightful swashbuckler. Critic Reviews: "Johanna Ward is fun to listen to. She puts the author's rather melodramatic prose in the best possible light by reading with restraint, gravity, and authority." (AudioFile) Members Reviews: When Orczy is at her best... she is a rival for Dumas, Shakespeare and the Greek playwrights. Here we have Electra, Hamlet, and the Count Of Monte Cristo all rolled up into a compelling little novel in the ongoing Percy Blackley/Scarlet Pimpernel series. Would love to see even more of Orzcy on Audible. Nice and short Pretty good story and I enjoyed the narration although somewhat predictable, especially if you are familiar with other books by Baroness Orczy. More of a romance story Where does I Will Repay rank among all the audiobooks youve listened to so far? This audiobook ranks highly for me because I am a Scarlet Pimpernel fan and have read all the books. It is very difficult to come across very many of these books in audiobook format. So this is rare. What was one of the most memorable moments of I Will Repay? I liked the scene where the Sir Blakeney (AKA the Scarlet Pimpernel) meets with Anne Mie who is of the household of Paul Déroulèdes is not very beautiful and is plainly jealous of Juliet, but Blakeney treats her with respect and tells her plainly what she asks to know. It shows what a great soul Sir Blakeney is and possibly one reason he has been risking his life to save people from the guillotine. Which scene was your favorite? Juliet's father forces her to swear an oath before God that she will avenge her brother's death even though he died in a fair fight. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? I usually listen to a little bit at a time while I am cooking, or doing things where I can play an audiobook and listen. Any additional comments? If you are a Scarlet Pimpernel fan, you will find this book has some of the least Pimpernel scenes of any of the books. It focuses mostly on the romance between Juliet and Paul and betrayal, then remorse and love. The story was Nnot as good as it should. What did you like best about I Will Repay? What did you like least? The story would have been much better if fleshed out, and as a standalone I hated the fact it is presented overall as a "Scarlet Pimpernel" novel. The character makes but a cameo, and Marguerite, where is Margyerite? Perhaps she is in disguise. Published about 100 years ago. Today we would call it a rip off due to it being labeled a Scarlet Pimpernel novel. Would you be willing to try another book from Baroness Emma Orczy? Why or why not? Have read other Orczy Scarlet Pimpernel novels and enjoyed them. Intend to read more. What about Johanna Wards performance did you like? Well done, about 20 years ago. Still the narration does add to the novel. Did I Will Repay inspire you to do anything? Not really. Any additional comments? Won't read it again, or recommend the book.

Il invente l'idée de la démocratie absolue en prenant le peuple moins comme objet que comme sujet de son discours. Son traité politique ne concerne plus seulement les gouvernants, les princes ou les conseils, mais les gouvernés. Ce déplacement du haut vers le bas de la hiérarchie civile fait du Contrat social le lieu théorique de rassemblement de l'humanité citoyenne. "Trouver une forme d'association qui défende et protège de toute la force commune la personne et les biens de chaque associé, et par laquelle chacun, s'unissant à tous, n'obéisse pourtant qu'à lui-même, et reste aussi libre qu'auparavant". Le Contrat social apporte la solution au problème du gouvernement de l'homme, celle de l'auto-gouvernement - obéissance à sa seule personne, aux lois qu'il se prescrit. Sa liberté naturelle se change en liberté morale. Denis Podalydès, fervent lecteur du Contrat social, nous fait partager l'émotion liée à l'intelligence de ce texte précurseur, et grâce à son talent de comédien, nous aide à découvrir et comprendre un texte fondateur de notre société moderne. Alexandre Wong & Claude Colombini-Frémeaux Le narrateur Comédien reconnu, formé par Michel Bouquet au Conservatoire, Sociétaire de la Comédie Française, est aussi écrivain et fervent amateur de lecture à voix haute.

The Toilers of the Sea Audiobook by Victor Hugo

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Toilers of the Sea Author: Victor Hugo Narrator: Patrick Dickson Format: Abridged Length: 6 hrs and 52 mins Language: English Release date: 12-09-15 Publisher: Patrick Dickson Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 7 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Victor Hugo wrote this wonderful story while living in exile on the island of Guernsey, which is where the adventure unfolds. Set in the early 1800s, The Toilers of the Sea tells off a young reclusive fisherman who falls dangerously in love with a beautiful island girl. Her uncle, himself an intrepid seafarer, is the owner of a paddle-steamer, which plies its trade to and from St. Malo on the coast of Brittany. The vessel is wrecked on a remote reef in suspicious circumstances, and our brave young fisherman sets out alone to salvage the all-important machinery, the steam engine itself. If he succeeds, he will return home to the promised hand of the girl he daren't even talk to. Like his contemporary, Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo paints boldly on a huge canvas. His characters are compelling and colorful. Through them, he explores the values and the morality of his times. In this novel, he pits them not only against each other and their hard circumstances, but also against the elements themselves in the rough and rocky seas of the "Norman Archipelago". Patrick Dickson has intelligently abridged this terrific novel focusing on the drama of the adventure and the plight of its characters. Like Hugo, he spent 15 years of his life on the island of Guernsey, and he brings a unique sensibility to the storytelling. He is an actor with extensive narrating experience. This is his first self-produced audiobook. Members Reviews: Interesting, could without the special effects I listened to this just after Les Miserables. I was curious to read another of Victor Hugo's writings. It was interesting. The added music and sound effects were distracting, and are totally unnecessary. Avid audio book listeners do not need these. But, I'm glad to have read the book. Fantastic listening on sea side holiday I've always wanted to listen to this book but have never found a well read version. This one however is perfect! Read by a true Guernsey man with a smattering of sound effects that really immerse you into the story. I listened to this whilst on holiday next to the sea in Cornwall and it was the perfect companion. Dramatic story If you could sum up The Toilers of the Sea in three words, what would they be? Gripping, entertaining, Guernsey Who was your favorite character and why? Gilliatt, the hero, for his determination and generosity. Have you listened to any of Patrick Dicksons other performances? How does this one compare? This is the first Any additional comments? Anyone who knows and loves Guernsey should listen to this. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Zelmenyaners Subtitle: A Family Saga Author: Moyshe Kulbak, Hillel Halkin - translator Narrator: David Skulski Format: Unabridged Length: 9 hrs and 22 mins Language: English Release date: 10-06-17 Publisher: Post Hypnotic Press Inc. Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: This is the first complete English-language translation of a classic of Yiddish literature, one of the great comic novels of the 20th century. The Zelmenyaners describes the travails of a Jewish family in Minsk that is torn asunder by the new Soviet reality. Four generations are depicted in riveting and often uproarious detail as they face the profound changes brought on by the demands of the Soviet regime and its collectivist, radical secularism. The resultant intergenerational showdowns - including disputes over the introduction of electricity, radio, or electric trolley - are rendered with humor, pathos, and a finely controlled satiric pen. Moyshe Kulbak, a contemporary of the Soviet Jewish writer Isaac Babel, picks up where Sholem Aleichem left off a generation before, exploring in this book the transformation of Jewish life. Members Reviews: Finally in Translation Timeless satire, originally written in the 1930s. If you like Jewish family sagas, you will love this one. A large shetl family copes with the new Soviet Union. Fantastic Book Kulbak's sincere analysis of the evolution of Jewish identity under Soviet regime- this book highlights the replacement of traditional Jewish culture with a more universal Soviet mindset. One of the great Yiddish language satires The Zelmenyaners is simultaneously a brutal satire of an extended Jewish family and a eulogy following its destruction at the hands of Soviet industrialization. Moshe Kulbak was a major talent; his tragic death during the Stalinist purges should not allow him to be forgotten. The Zelmanyaners is funny, mean, and tender often at the same time, and it is never anything less than engaging. A very worthwhile read. Satire is often the closest ... A very worthwhile read. Satire is often the closest to truth you'll find. This charmingly told story captivates and educates the reader about a dynamic family caught between a rock and a hard place both of which are being manipulated by Stalin's Five-year plan. 5 shtern A timeless satire, filled with poignant humor as it chronicles a Jewish family in the midst of unparalleled social and technological upheaval in early 1930s Minsk. The prose (in excellent translation) is deft, punchy, and episodic in a way that captivates even the 21st-century attention span. Even if you don't care about Yiddish culture, Soviet history, or the development of the Soviet Jewish identity, The Zelmenyaners is bigger than its thematic context and is absolutely worth a read as universal literature and satire. That said, the helpful annotations and phenomenal introduction put the work in its proper historical context and make it accessible to all. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Su lectura, por tanto, se hace fácil, y su estilo sorprendente por lo actual. Please Note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

The Black Tulip Audiobook by Alexandre Dumas

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Black Tulip Author: Alexandre Dumas Narrator: Rosalyn Landor Format: Unabridged Length: 8 hrs and 5 mins Language: English Release date: 05-28-09 Publisher: Blackstone Audio, Inc. Ratings: 3.5 of 5 out of 23 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Alexandre Dumas's novels are notable for their suspense and excitement, their foul deeds, hairsbreadth escapes, and glorious victories. In The Black Tulip, the real hero is no musketeer, but a flower. The novel, a deceptively simple story, is set in Holland in 1672 during the amazing tulipmania of the 17th century that brought wealth to some and ruin to many. The story weaves the historical events surrounding the brutal murder of John de Witte and his brother Cornelius into a tale of romantic love. The novel is also a timeless political allegory in which Dumas, drawing on the violence and crimes of history, makes his case against tyranny and puts all his energies into creating a symbol of justice and tolerance: the fateful tulipa negra. Members Reviews: Two Cheers for The Black Tulip Since I was a child I've loved "The Three Musketeers" and its sequels, "Twenty Years After" and "The Vicomte de Bragelonne". They are among my favorite books of all, so I'm ever interested in a "new" book by Alexandre Dumas. "The Black Tulip" was one of those books of his I'd not read, nor even heard of until recently. The story is set in The Netherlands during the time of William of Orange (1670s). It involves the civil unrest of the time, but is primarily concerned with Cornelius Van Baerle, who has no interest in politics and is devoted to his tulips (and his quest to create the first all-black blossom); Rosa, the plucky young woman who loves and helps him; and the scheming and wicked Isaac Boxtel, who labors to acquire the elusive black tulip for himself, stooping even to falsely imprison the naive Cornelius. The story becomes surprisingly exciting, a true nail-biter even, and has the historical scenery, action, romance, and humor that draw me back to Dumas again and again. I don't love "The Black Tulip" like I do "The Three Musketeers" and its sequels, but I still find much to enjoy in it, and I plan to return to the book again in the years to come. Very fun read This is no "the three musketeers". But still a very fun read... Some stuffs in the story are not realistic... I am mostly impressed by Dewitt brothers, their contribution to their country and the ungratefulness of the people in general.. Although it is very small part of story, I can't help but feel astonished at the whole affairs.. Rosa is definitely lovely as a character Enjoyable novel. Maybe buy a different copy. Bought this book for husband. It arrived early and in great shape. He is thoroughly enjoying the book bc he is a Dumas fan (hence the 5 stars). Unfortunately, this particular paperback(new) is falling apart as he is reading it-still, it is a wonderful story and I don't regret my purchase. Perfect for schools As an avid fan of Dumas I decided to take a break from my research on the British Enlightenment to read this short (by Dumas standards) novel. It did not disappoint. Set in the early 1670s in Holland, it is at once an adventure story and a love story. Unlike Dumas's two most famous works, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers, it does not carry any enormous questions about tye difference between the state's justice and the individual's, or about whether serving justice makes victims happy and whole.

Then he gets out. As Willi tries to make a new life for himself in Hamburg, finding a job and even love, he still cannot escape his past. Gradually he becomes sucked into a world of drink, desperation, deceit, and, with one terrible act, he is ensnared in a noose of his own making. Hans Fallada, whose famous works include Alone in Berlin and The Drinker, brilliantly crafts this dark and moving novel, originally written in 1934, as he describes a seedy criminal underworld of shabby lives and violent deeds, showing how our actions always catch up with us. His work is unparalleled, and Once a Jailbird is a fantastic title to add to Falladas recently translated works. Members Reviews: Worst. Narrator. Ever. I got the audiobook as a Whisper synch deal with the KIndle book. The book itself is good, but the reader keeps dropping his voice to a whisper. Maybe he thought that's what Whisper synch means! I could not adjust the volume to hear all he said. In frustration I returned the audiobook. I will have to finish it on my Kindle. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed into a gigantic insect. Public Domain (P)2010 Alpha DVD LLC Members Reviews: I read it as a story, not a metaphor It was just wonderful to think about this, and I know I am a bit grotesque, so keep that in mind. But go for it and read it. What is the worst that can happen? Absurd and touching at the same time Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Possibly. I would say that I enjoyed the book, but I don't think that would be the right sentiment. I was touched by it. I think it has a very significant message, but it is not a light listen. So, although I would recommend it to people, I don't know if all of my friends would enjoy it. What was one of the most memorable moments of Metamorphosis? Gregor's death. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? I did. This was my first experience with Kafka, so I wasn't sure what to expect. At first, I was surprised by the absurdity of the story. But, of course, this was Kafka's intent. As the story progressed, I was touched by Gregor's continued humanity despite his "condition." The themes in this piece are transferable to so many human situations, conditions, and plights. I was so touched by this story that I wept when it was over. I am crying now just remembering it. It affected me on a very deep level, unlike anything I have experienced with the more modern pieces I have been reading. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Excelente adaptación de Ariel Juvenil y más aun en su versión moderna, estos libros tuvieron un enorme éxito comercial en muchos países de Latinoamérica en los 70s y 80s... Si al leer la adaptación me gustaba, conseguía la obra completa y la devoraba. Esta colección me ayudó a tener amor por la literatura. Es un libro bastante técnico e inteligente En mi mente tenia otra cosa de este libro, ya que se trata de la preparación para ir a la luna, muy bien descrito todo y una increíble imaginación de Julio Verne, como hace tanto tiempo se imaginó cosas así. Incluso de casualidad salió un articulo en el periódico, dando similitudes del real viaje a la luna y lo que Verne escribió en su libro, es increíblemente cercano, la velocidad de viaje, el tiempo y otras mas. Seguramente estudió muy bien el tema, las coincidencias no existen, él se debe haber preparado mucho para escribir este relato. Excelente obra, la edición se debe revisar La historia como todas las de Verne suman ciencia ficción, divulgación científica, aventura, historia y demás elementos que te enganchan de principio a fin. Esta edición del libro presenta problemas en la ortografía y conformación de algunas palabras, ya que al parecer la herramienta que se utilizó para digitalizarla sustituyó algunas letras por otras, en algunos casos incluso con números. E l libro original consta de dos partes, pero llegó solo la primera, este libro llegó incompleto, falta la segunda parte! The book arrived incomplete the second part is missing The book arrived incomplete the second part is missing The book arrived incomplete the second part is missing Three Stars I love Jules Verne, but this book doesn't his best one!"!!!

Dublin-born Gabriel Byrne, who has starred in 16 films, including Little Women and The Usual Suspects, clearly brings to life Joyce's short stories from Dubliners, and selections from A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Chamber Music in this audio version. Members Reviews: Great Read Always great reading. Preliminary Review I am in the process of reading it. Full review can be added later. Five Stars As represented. more from ireland as promised Great Collection A great collection that is very affordable. The only isssue is that the formatting makes Ulysses a little difficult to read.

Thackeray Narrator: Jane Lapotaire Format: Abridged Length: 6 hrs and 36 mins Language: English Release date: 08-04-03 Publisher: Naxos AudioBooks Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 31 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Vanity Fair, with its rich cast of characters, takes place on the snakes-and-ladders board of life. Amelia Sedley, daughter of a wealthy merchant, has a loving mother to supervise her courtship. Becky Sharp, an orphan, has to use her wit, charm, and resourcefulness to escape from her destiny as a governess. This she does ruthlessly, musing: "I think I could become a good woman, if I had 5000 pounds a year." Thackeray's story is set at the time of the battle of Waterloo, in which the Sedley fortune is lost - and Amelia is back to square one - while Becky rises with contemptuous ease. Editorial Reviews: Vanity Fair is a sprawling, tongue-in-cheek comment on the questionable mores of British society and remains one of the defining satirical works of the 19th Century. An exquisite farce and lengthy dig at the stodgy, The Pilgrims Progress, the story primarily follows the travails of Amelia Sedley and Rebecca Sharp, as they leave their button-up girls academy and enter the strangely revered town of Vanity and its endless fair, where desires of the heart reign. Jane Lapotaire narrates this rich, character driven-narrative with grace and restraint, sounding a bit like the grand Dame Judi Dench in the process. Members Reviews: I know the problem I was listening to the abridged version with out realizing it until the end. Never again will I make that mistake. Loved this Narrator. Wonderful experience The reader has an excellent accent and tone, which made for a very enjoyable listen. Fantastic I finally understand all the references to Becky Sharp! Excellent reading, excellent story. Leaves one with many things to think about, like all good literature. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

L'Œuvre Livre Audio par Émile Zola

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: L'Œuvre Auteur: Émile Zola Narrateur: Victor Vestia Format: Unabridged Durée: 14 hrs and 53 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 06-16-17 Éditeur: Sonobook Evaluation: 4 sur 5 sur 1 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Comme le confesse Émile Zola, critique d'art, ami d'enfance de Paul Cézanne, fervent défenseur de Manet, de Monet et des impressionnistes contre l'art académique,: "L'Œuvre est un roman où mes souvenirs et mon cœur ont débordé". L'ouvrage suit une bande d'amis constituée autour d'un peintre et d'un écrivain. Ils fréquentent d'autres artistes, des sculpteurs, des architectes et des journalistes. L'auteur se met en scène dans le personnage de l'écrivain Pierre Sandoz, l'ami d'enfance de Claude Lantier, peintre génial mais maudit. Ce dernier incarne cette avant-garde artistique hantée par les souffrances de la création. Mais obsédé par ses rêves grandioses et rongé d'incertitudes, Claude va sacrifier sa vie et son amour à sa passion de l'art. Zola fait de L'Œuvre un document passionnant sur le milieu de l'art de la fin du 19ème siècle où se mêle l'enthousiasme d'une révolution artistique en marche, la camaraderie des artistes mais aussi la dèche des ateliers et la cohue des salons de peinture, les Officiels mais aussi celui des Refusés, avec leurs lots d'échecs, de jalousies et de déceptions. Tout cela avec Paris en décor somptueux. Considéré comme chef de file du naturalisme, Émile Zola (1840-1902) est l'un des romanciers français les plus populaires. Fasciné par le monde la peinture, il est très proche des mouvements artistiques d'avant-garde. >> Ce livre audio en version intégrale vous est proposé en exclusivité par Audible et est uniquement disponible en téléchargement. © domaine public (P)2017 Sonobook Avis des membres: Zola at his most poignant. Ive read LŒuvre before some years back, but was prompted to revisit it after watching the excellent film Cézanne et moi. It is thoroughly despicable to use and distort the life of a childhood friend, as Zola has in this novel, but it is a very moving and engrossing book. (The Rougon-Macquart series has some masterpieces and some awful drivel!) I wish more were available as audiobooks all the same - Pot-Bouille and L.Assommoir particularly. As I get older, I dont have time to re-read, but an Audiobook can be enjoyed while doing other things. The narrator does well, as he has before.

Dostojevskij Narrator: Karsten Pharao Format: Unabridged Length: 26 hrs and 34 mins Language: English Release date: 03-21-16 Publisher: Viatone Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: I Onde nder giver Dostojevskij en dybdeborende analyse af nihilismen og terrorismen med udgangspunkt i en gruppe revolutionre centreret omkring lederen Pjotr Verkhovénskij og den dmoniske kyniker og nihilist Stavrógin. Dostojevskijs visionre analyse forudsiger nrmest med profetisk klarhed den voldelige russiske revolution, og den er helt aktuel i forhold til den terrorisme, vi oplever i nutiden. Efter terrorangrebet 11. september skrev den franske filosof og frafaldne maoist André Glücksmann en artikel med overskriften 'Dostojevskij p Manhattan', hvor han trkker p beskrivelsen af nihilismens og terrorismens vsen i Onde nder som et alment, potentielt menneskeligt karaktertrk. Det er Dostojevskijs mest ideologiske roman, en social og politisk satire med en social tragedie. Selve handlingen er i vanlig Dostojevskij-stil krimiagtig, barsk realistisk og medrivende med mange handlingsforlb. Please note: This audiobook is in Danish.

Ten young people have fled for a while the terrible effects of the Black Death in Florence and, in an idyllic setting, tell a series of brilliant stories, by turns humorous, bawdy, tragic, and provocative. This celebration of physical and sexual vitality is Boccaccios answer to the sublime other-worldliness of Dantes Divine Comedy. A complete list of narrators includes Giovanni Boccaccio, Teresa Gallagher, James Goode, Polly Hayes, Jonathan Keeble, Siri O'Neal, Alison Pettit, Daniel Philpott, Nickie Rainsford and Stephen Thorne. Editorial Reviews: This fourteenth-century Italian tome, which inspired Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Balzac, remains one of the most enjoyable anthologies of short stories ever written. Nice capable British narrators represent the storytellers in Naxos's sampling of a graceful translation. Some young unmarried nobles, the "beautiful people" of the age, decide to wait out the Florentine plague in their country estates, amusing each other every evening with earthy stories, some outright bawdy, others pointing to a moral. The narrators capture the language and style with keen understanding. Well-chosen music adds to the atmosphere. Members Reviews: Shakespeare liked it. And I do, too. Very interesting insight into the minds of young adults in 14th century Italy. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Cousin Bette Audiobook by Honore de Balzac, Sylvia Raphael (translator)

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Cousin Bette Author: Honore de Balzac, Sylvia Raphael (translator) Narrator: Paul Hecht Format: Unabridged Length: 18 hrs and 52 mins Language: English Release date: 04-09-13 Publisher: Recorded Books Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 21 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Honore de Balzac's classic book of revenge and passion in which the title character Bette plots the destruction of various men including her cousin-in-law, Baron Hector Hulot. Bette enlists the help of Valérie, an unhappily married young woman, to seduce Hulot, destroy his life, and take his family's fortune. Members Reviews: Sweat Land of Libertine (Hell Hath No Fury....) If you are squeamish or prudish, do not read this novel published in 1847 in France at the height of the "libertine" philosophy/movement that one need not be restrained by the morals of society, including monogamy and the institution of marriage, but should instead seek life's pleasures with no regard to others, particularly the pleasures of multiple sexual partners (Note: this is an uneducated synopsis of Libertinism). Honore de Balzac paints a reality in which money and sex are bartering and blackmail chips, and where honor, love, loyalty and guilt take second seat to instant gratification and ego-boosting debauchery. And regret is non-existent. The name is somewhat misleading. Cousin Bette is the old maid who is jilted by her infatuation Wenceslas in favor of her adorable, angelic cousin Hortense Hurlot. She schemes to ruin the Hurlot family through a temptress named Madame Marneffe. Madame Marneffe is as easy as an old shoe. Daddy Hurlot and the Mayor are also sleeping with Madame Marneffe. I cannot start describing the rest of the story without going down a path littered with raunch and degradation. The story involves cruelty, sexual blackmail, revenge, prostitution, unconscionable adultery, selfishness, the irresistibility of the female sexual allure, poisons, passion-filled murder and just about every other sin and demoralizing defect of character. I read and listened to this novel last summer, but am just now writing a review. I wanted to read a Balzac novel. As I write this, I am convinced this novel is a playbook for today's soap operas. I give it a 4 stars for the story because there is something to be said for keeping all this straight, being one of the trailblazers of realism for so many great authors to follow, and because it's part of a larger sequence of novels and short stories, La Comedie humaine, presenting a panoramic view of life in France after Napoleon's downfall in 1815. The narrator seems a bit too full of himself and, as such, distracts from the story instead of enhancing it. Loved this in college, but now...? What did you like best about Cousin Bette? What did you like least? The window into Parisian society of the mid-1800s -- corrupt, licentious -- was what I found interesting and then was ultimately bored by. How did the narrator detract from the book? I don't want to be unkind, but he should not have agreed to narrate this. The great narrators on Audible create voices for each of the characters that capture the essence of each "person" and help you find the wit and poignancy that you might not have noticed. This narration seemed stentorian and with so many female characters, he was very unsuited for representing the women. I don't know how other narrators manage to play women so incredibly well without seeming ridiculous or unmanly, but they do! This narrator, alas, seemed to march through the text with a heavy tread.

Werther ist sofort von Lottes Anmut und Natürlichkeit fasziniert, in ihr sieht er die große Liebe seines Lebens. Doch Lotte ist bereits verlobt. Gert Westphal liest die erste, ungekürzte Version des Briefromans und lässt den Hörer zusammen mit Werther alle Höhen und Tiefen der Liebe miterleiden. ©1997 Litraton (P)2015 der Hörverlag Mitglieder Bewertungen: An incisive critique of bourgeois vices In the Enlightenment attempt to justify the institutions of bourgeois liberalism, one of the most glaring failures is the case of punishment. The Enlightenment can prove that a certain kind of peace is possible among those who accept its peculiar form of bourgeois reason. But the cruel treatment of dissenters who are either unable or unwilling to accept this sort of rationalityâfor this the Enlightenment has no justification. In a conversation with his bourgeois rival Albert, Werther brings up this unpaid debt of the Enlightenment. What should we say about a thief who steals to feed his starving children? Who would cast the first stone at him? A man overcome with passion, says Albert, loses his senses, as if he were drunk or insane. Rational, reasonable bourgeois people like Albert designate the dissenter who refuses to accept their form of rationality as an outsider, who, because of his so-called irrationality is unworthy of sympathy. The cold-blooded cruelty of the bourgeois regime is rationalized by precisely such dehumanization of its victims. The fundamental principle of the Enlightenment, as Kant would articulate it, is that each individual mind must overcome its self-imposed immaturity and learn to think without guidance from another. While the middle class of the eighteenth century were proud that the philosophical representatives of their age had overcome the superstitions of earlier ages and emerged from their state of self-imposed immaturity, individual bourgeois minds were by no means prepared to make this emergence themselves. Werther is frustrated because he speaks âfrom his whole heart,â while Albert only replies with âmeaningless platitudes.â Albert canât be forced to think about who will cast the first stone at the poor thief, because public institutions, which feel no mercy, are perfectly willing to cast the stone on his behalf. Albert isnât forced to think. Therefore, he doesnât want to think. To this end, he has at his disposal many rough and ready phrases that can defuse such uncomfortable questions without demanding even the slightest glimmer of sincere thought. The bourgeois mind remains in its own peculiar state of self-imposed immaturity, in which phrases prepared in advance under the guidance of others can be assembled without guidance from others, but individual words cannot. We might draw an analogy between Wertherâs frustrated attempts to draw Albert into a sincere debate about bourgeois morality and Socratesâ frustrated attempts to embroil his conversation partners in serious philosophical debates. Under no circumstance does Albert want to think for himself.

Abridged version. Madame Bovary is Gustave Flaubert's first published novel and considered his masterpiece. The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. The audiobook version of Madame Bovary was translated and produced by Talking Books LTD. Music: Ran Bagno. Please note: This audiobook is in Hebrew. Members Reviews: A classic. Madame Bovary is a classic. Flaubert is an artist renowned for his poetic descriptions. I first read this book in French and will always remember certain passages for their rhythm, almost music. I read in in English the second time and felt that some of the poetry was lost in translation. Still, if one cannot read a book in the language in which it was written, reading it in the language that you can is better than not reading it at all. This is a book one reads for the beauty of the language, the slow but incisive character developments. It's a romantic novel that lets you penetrate deep into the psyche of the main characters and their motivations. It provides complex insights into how people fall in love and what happens when romance gives way to monotony. A perfect novel in a perfect translation A perfect novel in a perfect translation. Incredibly moving. The last twenty pages are nearly unbearable. Flaubert's novel is genius, and Davis's translation does it full credit. What can I say about Mme Bovary? Super translation. This is of course a famous book. No need for me to add to everything that has been said about it. This translation seems to be superb. And the physical book is well done. Transport yourself To a time that is no longer reality. Flaubert paints such a vivid story of a specific time in history with such captivating characters. Reading it on ereader is so helpful with the vocabulary!!! Well written and depressing. A very well written and depressing book. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Lady Gregory's translation of these old Irish stories was described by the poet W. B. Yeats as "the best book that has come out of Ireland in my time." It contains translations by Lady Gregory of medieval manuscript versions of myths and legends drawn from a pre-historic oral tradition that still survives today. This adaptation for audio allows the listener to experience some of these stories through the spoken voice, as when they were first told by country people and in the courts of kings. Reader Felicity Hays-McCoy is an Irish writer and actress whose knowledge and love of these stories goes back to her childhood, when she first heard them in the Irish language. Critic Reviews: "Felicity Hays-McCoy's reading is brisk, matter-of-fact, business like. 'So now,' she says, 'here's how it happened...' I love it. You almost expect her to add 'and don't be tormenting me with questions.' We wouldn't, there's no need. Once you're there with the Fianna, fighting, feasting, chasing enchanted pigs, meeting princesses as dazzling as Niamh, you just listen and marvel. And want more." (Sue Arnold, the Guardian) Members Reviews: great stroy this is well worth it, it is a rich story and you will enjoy it Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

It's worth your time to read it. You'll know a little more of the Ukraine, of the steppes, and of the Cossacks. You'll know a little more about Russian literature. If you're like me, you'll have poured thimblefuls into an abyss of ignorance. And have had fun pouring. Great book! Comparable and compared by great authors and ... Great book! Comparable and compared by great authors and poets to be very near to and even an equivalent of the great epics of Homer, The Iliad and Odyssey. That is how good the book is! Great for understanding cossack life in Ukraine, but do your research so you can understand the actual history as it can be confusing when almost everything is called russian instead of ukrainian! To be read with a swift gallop The characters in Russian literature have never been known for being truth-seekers, but they are never passive and are always self-aware. They seem to always want to prove a point, and if they wrestle with circumstances it is only because they enjoy the challenges that such circumstances offer. Gogol's Taras Bulba is no exception to this generalization, and if he were judged by modern terminology he might be classified as a terrorist.

Imagine waking up one morning and finding that you are a giant insect, a cockroach, still perceiving your surroundings and family as they are, but unable to comminicate. This is what happens to Gregor Samsa. Yesterday he was a traveling salesman, and today he finds himself a repulsive vermin. The story revolves around how the family copes with the creature that must have been the son and brother they loved, until he succumbs to a wound from an apple thrown by his father. Critic Reviews: "One of the few perfect works of the poetic imagination written during this century." (Elias Canetti) Members Reviews: Beautiful Kafka Story was Well Narrated This is one of Kafkas best stories and is very easy to read and quite enjoyable. The narration, although not perfect, matches the story nicely. This is one of my favorite Kafka stories. The story has a wonderfully bland tone regardless of the hideous circumstances. This is priced at about four bucks, so I didnt use a full credit. I have read this story quite a few times and completely enjoyed this version. If you havent read Kafka, this is the best place to start. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Molly Bloom's Soliloquy Audiobook by James Joyce

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Molly Bloom's Soliloquy Subtitle: from Ulysses Author: James Joyce Narrator: Marcella Riordan Format: Unabridged Length: 2 hrs and 25 mins Language: English Release date: 05-22-12 Publisher: Naxos AudioBooks Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 7 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Molly Blooms soliloquy, the remarkable climactic conclusion to Ulysses, remains, nearly a century after its first publication, one of the most remarkable chapters in world literature. It is night, the end of a long day (16 June 1904) for Leopold Blooms wife, Molly. She lies in bed, muses on the events of the day, her life with her husband, her affair with Blazes Boylan, and drifts towards sleep. Joyce tried to document a womans thoughts in an unexpurgated stream of consciousness: subjects, memories, fantasies interweave among the incomplete sentences. Regarded as scandalous and brilliant in its intimacy, the soliloquy is captivating and engrossing, especially when read so convincingly by the Irish actress Marcella Riordan. For those who have found it difficult to get to the end of Ulysses, here, unabridged, is the soliloquy on its own - and curiously it works almost as an extended poem, with a rhythm and an intimate power that are unforgettable. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. Editorial Reviews: The final chapter of James Joyce's Ulysses is a stream of consciousness soliloquy delivered by Leopold Bloom's wife Molly. Her thoughts are meandering, wistful, and at times explicit, containing a physicality that the novel's male characters often lack. One challenge that a performer encounters with this material is Joyce's sparse punctuation - the entire soliloquy only contains eight sentences - but Irish actress Marcella Riordan punctuates Molly's words with natural pauses and sighs that enhance their meaning. Riordan clearly understands the author's intentions and helps listeners do the same. Her voice is at times sultry, ethereal, and yearning, not to mention melodic when she bursts into song. This performer is truly worthy of Joyce's final passage. Members Reviews: Seductive performance; Perfect complement to novel Marcella Riordan's reading of Molly Blooms stream of consciousness is seductive and beautiful. For me, it was a revelation and insight into the female mind. Considering James Joyce, a male, wrote this, it's beyond my comprehension how he so accurately presents a woman's point of view and attention to detail to the world around her. I knew little of what Ulysses was about prior to buying the unabridged John Lee narration; this specific audiobook is a portion of the final episode of the novel, and deserves a female voice to really bring it to life. Riordan's voice has that beautiful Irish inflection and accent; it's like she's both whispering in your ear and voicelessly placing her thoughts in your mind. The sexual explicitness of Molly Bloom's thoughts and observations were really stunning; what an insight into the female mind. This is a perfect complement to the full audiobook novel which are read by various male narrators. Very poorly interpreted reading Any additional comments? I decided to give myself a year to tackle Ulysses properly and when I came to the last episode I bought this recording to help me. After listening to it a couple of times I still found it somewhat confusing so I read along with it. I found that a lot of the confusion was not with the writing but with the reading. To my annoyance, there are countless instances where the text was totally misinterpreted and misread.

La Sanseverina possède toutes les dimensions de la femme amoureuse et objet d'amour passionné, tandis que le héros, Fabrice del Dongo, est un enfant béni des dieux. Mais leur fougue et leur sentimentalisme vont les mener à un destin tragique. © Domaine public (P)2008 Éditions Thélème Avis des membres: Great litterary work, but bad edition The story, with a number of picturesque characters and sceneries, is admirably told, with frequent nods from the author on various topics. It's no wonder this book is a classic, and it is a reminder that if one wants to know about human nature, one should read the classics; if one wants to express oneself well, one should read the classics. However, this publication/edition does great injury to the work and to the author: How could there be so many typos and errors!? This book was written in the 19th century; surely there have been many editions since then so that all the typos would be corrected! How can Amazon and CreateSpace, in the 21st Century, the age of the Internet, still use such a mediocre edition! Revisit an old friend I read La Certosa di Parma first in Italian, then in English and I realized I missed to read it in French. Doine now, and I still read it with interest (I am old and I had forgotten some of the passages). I read it the way it should be read, like a thriller, and with my sympathy to Napoleon, who, pace Inghilterra, brought the French revolution to Europe. The description of Waterloo is perfect: if you have been in a battle, that is the way you come out, not really knowing if you were in a battle. And the description of the petty, ridiculous Parma court is also very well done. The women are nice, perhaps too nice, what's wrong with it? Five Stars Exactly what I wanted. One of the great novels of all times I ordered it so as to have it and re-read it from time to time. One of the great novels of all times. The story is wonderful and well written The story is wonderful and well written, but the edition of the book is terrible, full of spelling and typos. I wouldn't recommend!

Voltaire y raconte les mésaventures et les revers de fortune d'un jeune homme né à Babylone. Ce conte se place à la confluence de trois genres littéraires : le conte de fées (mis à la mode par Perrault et les Contes des Mille et une Nuits), le roman picaresque (Zadig décrit une ascension sociale, suivie de coups du sort) et le roman sentimental (Zadig relate les tribulations de deux amants éloignés par la vie). "Je vous offre la traduction d'un livre d'un ancien sage qui, ayant le bonheur de n'avoir rien à faire, eut celui de s'amuser à écrire l'histoire de Zadig, ouvrage qui dit plus qu'il ne semble dire. Je vous prie de le lire et d'en juger ; car, quoique vous soyez dans le printemps de votre vie, quoique tous les plaisirs vous cherchent, quoique vous soyez belle, et que vos talents ajoutent à votre beauté ; quoiqu'on vous loue du soir au matin, et que par toutes ces raisons vous soyez en droit de n'avoir pas le sens commun, cependant vous avez l'esprit très sage et le goût très fin, et je vous ai entendue raisonner mieux que de vieux derviches à longue barbe et à bonnet pointu." (Voltaire) © Domaine public (P)2016 Audiolude Avis des membres: Five Stars Excellent Zadig: A Masterpiece Zadig is a well written story of about the wise man named Zadig. He has many characteristics that make him a perfect worldly man at its greatest. He is wise, justified, and well-read. By far my favorite part in this little masterpiece is when Zadig makes the fine decisions for the King such as when he helped the woman claim her baby. Zadig gets really great when Zadig helps the Widows by convincing them to not burn themselves. I felt the emotion when Zadig lost his beloved Queen when the king unjustly ordered Zadig executed for having an affair with the queen, which he did not. Overall Zadig is a wonderful story that I would suggest to read whether your interests include classics, fantasy, fast-paced, or slow-paced books. It can interesting to a person of any age. Zadig has a little place within me now and I hope this classic story of a man trying to be Just stays with me forever. Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

In this third and final part of The Divine Comedy, Dante encounters the just rulers and holy saints of the Church. The horrors of the Inferno and the trails of Purgatory are left far behind. Ultimately, in Paradise, Dante is granted a vision of God's Heavenly court - the angels, the Blessed Virgin, and God Himself. (P)1999 NAXOS AudioBooks Ltd.; ©1999 NAXOS AudioBooks Ltd. Editorial Reviews: Heathcote Williams enters into this new translation of Dante's masterpiece with almost as much enthusiasm as did Dante himself. Whether the souls Dante meets in the Inferno are tortured by cold, fire, their own fingernails, or just longing, Williams manages to make their pain come to life. His narration is so dramatic and so individualized that it feels more like a full-cast production than a solo narration, especially with the accompanying music, which both sets the mood and provides transitions. A short biography of Dante read by John Shrapnel accompanies the production. Shrapnel's voice is full of sympathy over Dante's exile, but his primary quality as a narrator is intense clarity; he handles complex political explanations smoothly and seems at ease with the Italian. Members Reviews: Hands down the best reading of Dante on audiobook. No long winded review,Heathcote Williams and this free verse translation make an increadible experience of this the greatest spiritual poem ever written.

Around the World in Eighty Days Audiobook by Jules Verne

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Around the World in Eighty Days Author: Jules Verne Narrator: Jonathan Kis-Lev Format: Unabridged Length: 3 hrs and 16 mins Language: English Release date: 04-08-11 Publisher: SonicBooks Ltd. Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 1 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Around the World in Eighty Days is a classic adventure novel by the French writer Jules Verne, first published in 1873. In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet, Passepartout, attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a 20,000 wager set by his friends at the Reform Club. Jules Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. Consequently, he is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction". Jules Verne is the second most translated author of all time, with 4,223 translations. Some of his works have been made into films. Please note: This audiobook is in Hebrew. Members Reviews: Around the World in 80 Days Everyone knows the basic story, but reading the book was quite painful and not enjoyable for a middle schooler who chose it from the summer reading list. It's written in a stuffy, 19th century style, which is great if one enjoys such writing. As an adult, I love the stuff, but it really was hard to wade through the formal prose and starchy descriptions. I don't recommend modernizing it, although that would introduce it to a generation that will otherwise not make an effort. Accompanies the Video Trip Having seen this television series of Michael Palin's trip, this is a nice way to refresh the memory. I understand that the book follows the video series very closely. I intend to read it at some time. I got it for my late husband and he did enjoy reading it. Mr. Palin's observations of the world were very interesting. David Niven was a perfect choice. Wonderful book. It evoked my memories of the original movie I watched in younger days. It is also quite a lesson in changing perceptions AND realities. It was, after all, written 143 years ago, and the world has changed a bit. Now you can circumnavigate the globe without even an engine (solar airplane), but between Homeland Security, customs officials everywhere, infrastructure maintenance failures and other modern inconveniences, Mr. Fogg's record might beat yours if you attempted the same route. I wonder if TripAdvisor could set me up . . . Good translation and nice themes One of the more simple works of Verne in my opinion. Good translation and nice themes. The characters themselves didn't attract me a great deal. Fine quality book and a fairly easy read. I Always Love This One I give it five stars. It's always a favorite. I read it with my eleven year old in our homeschool. She said, "It's not my favorite book, but it's okay." I, on the other hand, love the beauty behind the message of Mr. Fogg's journey. It would seem as though there really are some things in life that mean more than glory and riches. ;) Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Set in Co. Mayo during the early days of the 19th-century Land War, this mighty epic of the Irish Land and People tells of the struggles between the British landlords and the Irish tenantry. Liam OFlaherty aka Liam Ó Flaithearta (1896-1984) was a significant Irish novelist and short story writer and a major figure in the Irish literary renaissance. OFlaherty was the son of Maidhc Ó Flaithearta and Maggie Ganley of Gort na gCapall. In 1908, at the age of 12, he went to Rockwell College. This was followed by enrollments at Holy Cross and University College, Dublin. He did not attend the first two schools for long. He had intended joining the priesthood, but in 1917 he left school and joined the Irish Guards under the name Bill Ganly. He served on the Western Front, where he was injured, and it is possible that the shell shock he suffered may have been responsible for the mental illness that became apparent in 1933. After the war OFlaherty left Ireland and moved to the United States, where he lived in Hollywood for a short time. The well-known director John Ford, a cousin, later turned Ó Flaitheartas novel The Informer into a film. Many of his works have the common theme of nature and Ireland. He was a distinguished short story writer, and some his best work in that genre was in Irish. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Hunchback of Notre Dame Audiobook by Victor Hugo

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Hunchback of Notre Dame Author: Victor Hugo Narrator: Frederick Davidson Format: Unabridged Length: 17 hrs and 35 mins Language: English Release date: 08-21-06 Publisher: Blackstone Audio, Inc. Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 136 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Set amid the riot, intrigue, and pageantry of medieval Paris, Victor Hugo's masterful tale of heroism and adventure has been a perennial favorite since its first publication in 1831. It is the story of Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of the Notre Dame Cathedral, who falls in love with the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda. When Esmeralda is condemned as a witch by Claude Frollo, the tormented archdeacon who lusts after her, Quasimodo attempts to save her; but his intentions are misunderstood. Written with a profound sense of tragic irony, Hugo's powerful historical romance remains one of the most thrilling stories of all time. (P)1996 Blackstone Audio Inc. Critic Reviews: "What a beautiful thing Notre-Dame is!" (Gustave Flaubert) Members Reviews: Davidson was miscast How did the narrator detract from the book? This narrator got the tone of the book all wrong, which is, most likely, the fault of the director. Any additional comments? I remember this being one of my very favorite books as a teen, and was very disappointed by the narration. Classic Beauty and the Beast I enjoyed this book as it is one of the classics. Victor Hugo does not dissappoint. I suggest you get the cliff notes if you are unfamiliar with the story, so you keep track of the characters. If you like lots of dialogue and character interaction then this is not your book as it is more the narrator role. One of my favorites! What other book might you compare The Hunchback of Notre Dame to and why? The book stands alone. Obviously Victor Hugo is a masterful writer, and with Hunchback, he wrote a masterpiece. The characters are complex. The story is compelling. If you think you know the story from the Disney movie or some other Hollywood version, trust me, in no way can any movie capture the depth of these characters and this story. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? If I had to pick my favorite chapter from all the audio books I have ever listened to, it is a chapter from this book. I walk while I listen. My walks take about an hour. One fine fall day I set out listening to a chapter called "A Bird's Eye View of Paris." It was purely descriptive, the kind of chapter I may skim if I were reading a hard copy of the book -- but that's not an option with an audio book. I walked, listening, as Hugo described the different burgs of Paris, the streets of Paris, the homes, the buildings, the churches. Quite frankly, 45 minutes into the walk and the chapter, I was getting a little tired of description. But then, the glorious conclusion. Having built a city of stone with words in my imagination, he began the chiming of the bells in all the steeples across the whole city -- small bells, medium size bells, and huge grand bells of Notre Dame. Hugo describes as "a tumult of bells and chimes," "a furnace of music," and a symphony. I heard a symphony in a audio-book and it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. Fantastic Story, Poor Narrator Instantly a favourite classic, but this narrator's voices were weak and his phrasing often felt wrong. Every voice sounded like someone hoarse from yelling differing only in frequency, and his Esmeralda sounded like someone mocking a scared girl, even during her most impassioned moments. As for the story, it's obvious why it's a classic.

Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 12 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: James considers this book to be his masterpiece! Various "ambassadors" are sent to Paris to persuade Chad Newsome to return to his New England town and attend to his business interests there. One of these envoys, Lambert Strether, is so impressed with Chad's suavity and charm that he advises him to stay with Mme. de Vionnet in France. ©1992 Audio Book Contractors, Inc. (P)2004 Audio Book Contractors, Inc. Members Reviews: Why Henry James never goes out of style Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? This is a wonderful book, and thank you Flo Gibson for contriving charming character voices that transcend the ages. Your English-speaking Parisians come to life instantly, present themselves with dignity and high-minded sophistication. Listening to the first chapter or so may be a bit daunting for some; the prose is somewhat archaic by today's standards (Not complaining! Love it!), requires some time to get the rhythm, sense the trajectory. But such a sweet story, so insightful and pleasant. After hearing it I went for the print version, intend to read it, too. What did you like best about this story? The deep dive into character development that generates an aire of highly refined sophistication assisted by disarming self-deprecation and good humor. Have you listened to any of Flo Gibsons other performances before? How does this one compare? I have not but will certainly seek them out. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? Vive la difference! Any additional comments? Thanks for a very enjoyable experience. A dense, intricate, beautiful work This was my first introduction to Henry James, but after listening to this, I'll be exploring his work further. I love novels like this. The writing is ponderous, more concerned with fleshing out the characters and musing on their plights than on advancing the plot. It's dense stuff, but when the writing is this beautiful, that's a good thing. I highly recommend this if you're interested in immersing yourself in it. It's the type of old book that can put you in a reverie, and an antidote to our times, even if the story is at times quite sad. I do not recommend this if you are looking for a plot-driven novel or have a low tolerance for long, complicated sentences and a style of narration that is highly indirect and suggestive rather than blunt and forthright. The narration is quite good, in my opinion, but I know these things are personal. Play samples from the various versions available to find the narrator that's right for you. Loved reading Portrait of a Lady, but this... I'm not sure why I disliked this audio book so much. I found the characters to be annoyingly self interested and ridiculously effusive. Everyone was "exquisite" and "perfect". Made myself finish it. Where's the story? This is more about my limitations as a reader than it is about James, but all I can do is be honest, and, my goodness, this was a tough slog to get through. In this vast sea of beautiful words, I wasn't able to find the story. I only know what the book was about because I went to Wikipedia. I don't know how many times I had to pause the recording and ask, wait, where are we now? Who's speaking? Who is this character again? I don't know of a writer who uses more words to describe a person, a place, a state of being, than James.

This works best if it is a book that I have already listened to/read in English, as then the material is more familiar. For new languages, I will often try to listen to a book in parallel: say, 15 minutes of English, then 15 minutes of the other languages, etc. As of yet, there is a fairly limited selection of foreign language audiobooks available in the U.S. store, and an even smaller selection that are available in both English and a variety of other languages. (And, for some reason, the Spanish ones seem often to be abridged, which makes them much less useful for this type of "rosetta stone" parallel listening practice.) But it is slowly getting better. Congratulations to Audible for slowly increasing its foreign language material, and here is hoping that it will continue to do so. And perhaps some books in Mandarin and Arabic also?

Smollett. Editorial Reviews: Tom Whitworth delivers an exceptional performance of the satirical 1759 novel Candide by the French writer Francois Voltaire. In its day, the book - which is slyly critical of the institutions and the beliefs of the day - was banned for religious and political reasons. Whitworths steady voice allows the translation by T. Smollett to shine. The title character is a young man under the tutelage of Dr. Pangloss. As the audiobook progresses, he becomes increasingly more disillusioned with the world and the suffering of his fellow man. Members Reviews: Classic Confusion If you enjoy the classics, this might be for you. If you wish to avoid a ghorish, pessimistic-filled world of literary turmoil...avoid it. The audio quality is fine, but the narrator can get a little boring (or was it Candide?). You'll definitely love it or hate it...I'm the latter. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Lady of the Camellias Audiobook by Alexandre Dumas the Younger

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Lady of the Camellias Author: Alexandre Dumas the Younger Narrator: Charlton Griffin Format: Unabridged Length: 6 hrs and 56 mins Language: English Release date: 09-20-07 Publisher: Audio Connoisseur Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 34 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: The story begins when the narrator, Armand Duval, tells how he met the beautiful young temptress at a theatrical performance. With determination Armand pursues the flirtatious Marguerite and manages to capture her heart...with tragic consequences for both. Alexandre Dumas explores the twisted logic of two diametrically opposed lifestyles brought together in love, the impact on family and friends, and the internal stresses such an affair is bound to produce. With remarkable skill, Dumas takes us on a breathtaking tour of Paris at its sparkling height at the time of emperor Louis Napoleon. When The Lady of the Camellias first appeared in 1847, it caused an immediate sensation. It went on to become one of the most popular French novels of all time. Almost immediately, it caught the eye of Giuseppe Verdi, who transformed this tragic love story into one of the most popular and famous operas ever written, La Traviata. In the latter half of the century, The Lady of the Camellias took to the stage in a series of internationally successful productions. A stage version was being produced somewhere in the world almost continuously for over 50 years just prior to World War I. The book has also been adapted for film about 20 times, the most famous being Camille in the 1930s. Because of its timeless theme, La Dame aux Camélias will go right on capturing hearts for years to come. Settle back and let the story of Marguerite Gautier and Armand Duval sweep you away! Critic Reviews: "This is a very polished production, with music introducing and underscoring small sections of text. Charlton Griffin, a tried and true narrator, has a smooth baritone and such a clear understanding of the work that his interpretation is flawless." (The Boston Globe) Members Reviews: A Dumas in the age of de Balzac Fine portrait of the characters and understanding of a courtesan and the men who keep her and the man who loves her. The view of Paris reminds me of the best of Honore de Balzac in "Pere Goriot." Clever plot, in the tradition of his father, but more judgmental about society's moral codes. Original Version of Familiar Story Well Read The book is compulsively readable, perhaps because the story???a young courtesan, redeemed by love, dying of consumption???is so familiar. I was really impressed with the narrator, Charlton Griffin. In fact, I almost cannot believe that he spoke the women's parts he was so convincing. I listen to a lot of audio books, and he is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. Not the work of the Elder His father's novels were much better.

Members Reviews: Great Listening Experience! Would you listen to The Death of Ivan Ilyich again? Why? I've already listened to it twice. Of course, the book itself is wonderful, but Mr Guidall's narration is truly a performance. He handles the difficult Russian names with grace (and perfect pronunciation) and does a tremendous job of giving each character a distinct, recognizable voice. Who was your favorite character and why? Ivan himself -- such an interesting study of the end of a life. Some Things are Better on the Page The problem and the reason for one star is not with the book nor with the excellent reading. I just did not find this book fulfilling in the audio edition. I have tried to figure out why and have concluded that some literature is best left on the page (for me at least). I enjoy the classics and enjoy seeing the prose - I suppose. I may try an audio version of Swann's Way to test this theory, but it was written for the page and I enjoy it in that form. I do willingly listen to the New and Old Testaments without the same effect. Anyone interested in Tolstoy, do not be discouraged from listening to this classic or another. The audio vertsion was just not suited to my frame of mind I suppose. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Was ist passiert? War es ein Unglück? Gar eine Entführung? Nun gut, wie man es nimmt, Madame Henriette ist mit einem jungen, äußerst charmanten Franzosen, ja einem Beau, den sie erst am Vortag kennengelernt hat, durchgebrannt und geflohen. Kaum zu glauben und kaum vorstellbar! Der Ich-Erzähler muss in einem eindringlichen, gar leidenschaftlichem Plädoyer und Appell an die Hotelgäste das Unverständnis für den mutigen und gewagten Schritt der Mutter und Ehefrau bekämpfen und um Verständnis für die Tat werben, die einzig und allein ihrem Herzen und ihren Gefühlen folgte. Die nun hitzig auftretende Diskussion, die entbrennt, kann nur durch das beherzte Einschreiten der vornehmen Dame Mrs. C. wieder beruhigt werden. Was jedoch niemand ahnt: Auch in ihrem Leben gab es einst einen jungen, leidenschaftlichen und beherzten Mann, der ihr alles von den Augen ablas. So beginnt sie zu erzählen: Stunden aus dem Leben einer Frau, die alles grundlegend veränderten, sodass am Ende nichts mehr war wie vorher. Eine wunderbar geschriebene Novelle für alle, die eine spannende Liebesgeschichte mit Parallelen in der Vergangenheit zu schätzen wissen. Stefan Zweig (1881-1942), in Wien geborener Autor, lebte von 1919 bis 1935 in Salzburg, zog danach nach Großbritannien und emigrierte 1940 nach Brasilien. Neben seinem epischen Werk gelangte er durch seine historischen Miniaturen ("Sternstunden der Menschheit") und biographischen Arbeiten zu Berühmtheit. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

However, Juliens idealism and Napoleonic ambitions are always simmering just below the surface, threatening to erupt and jeopardize his designs. For how long will he be able to smother his true feelings? Bill Homewoods reading masterfully portrays the psychological tension and intrigue of this French classic. Editorial Reviews: British actor Bill Homewood has a deep, sonorous voice and narrates with almost musical refinement. Stendhal's wonderful chronicle of the nineteenth century tells the story of his hypocritical protagonist, Julien Sorel. A poor youth and brilliant scholar, Julien begins a career in the church despite his liberal views and his disgust for his superiors. His pious front gives him access to aristocratic households as a tutor, but his ambition for social prestige leads him to scandal and ruin. Homewood is chameleon-like in his versatility with vocal characterizations, easily switching from the youthful Julien's timid, earnest voice to the condescending tone of Monsieur de Renal. Masterful in his narration, Homewood captures all the nuances in the tone and language of Stendhal's writing. Members Reviews: The Red and the Black Julien is an ambitious young man thrown into society. He steadily gains success, but in the end he gets in his own way by committing an unthinkable act. Any English major will enjoy this book. It encapsulates a time period beautifully and is darkly humorous. It is a bit slow at times, but Julien is an interesting enough character that even the longest psychological monologues are interesting. Why is this version Identified as Annotated? Annotation would vastly improve apreciation. Stendhal has written a sharp, dark satire of post revolutionary France. The humor is dark, trending into melodrama. So much of the content is based in the history of that moment that an annotated version is very much needed. Despite the presence of the word "Annotated" in the title, this edition is not annotated. The error does not appear to belong to Amazon Having read Stendhal's The Charterhouse of ParmaThe Charterhouse of Parma (Penguin Classics), I find this book to be more of a pleasure to read. The translation may be more modern, but I was looking to avoid some of the older writing styles. Even so I would love to know if there was a better translation of whatever French word was returned as "Wiseacres". One does not hear or read the word 'droll' very often. (Dictionary.com: amusing in an odd way; whimsically humorous; waggish.) Droll is down played, roguish rather than slapstick. The wink of a non-glinting eye. Definitely not a pie in the face. Directed to the mind, not the belly.

Did not even made it trough the first chapter. I bought another version of the same book and start listening that one right away. What a difference! I advise against getting this version of the book. Luckily there are lots more to chose from. Great listening My son and I have really enjoyed this audio book. We love the narration.

Publications Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 34 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Nowadays, it would not seem an insurmountable task to make it around the world in 80 days. Yet, when Jules Verne published this novel in 1873, this was a phenomenon that many doubted was remotely possible. We are at first introduced to Phileas Fogg, who lives in London and has just fired his valet for silly reasons. Fogg then hires Jean Passepartout who, at the time of hire, has no idea of the adventure that his new boss will take him on. Fogg learns that it is now possible to travel around the world - starting and ending up in London - in only 80 days. Though he believes it is impossible, he attempts it anyway and takes Passepartout with him. Their initial itinerary features eight total stops around the world and, with each stop, there is a new set of challenges and escapades that face the two of them. Around the World in 80 Days is a listener's ticket to some of the most intriguing locations throughout the globe. Verne allows us to cheer on Fogg and Passepartout as they rescue a young woman in India, encounter structural dangers in San Francisco, and endure a string of missed connections between their destinations. And while their journey is emotionally gripping, it is nothing compared to the very end of the novel. Members Reviews: Suberb Loved the book, I enjoy this very much.

The Bear, the classic one-act play by Anton Chekhov, produced, directed, and adapted by Joe Bevilacqua. Written in 1900, The Bear is one of the great works of Anton Chekhov, about the strange beginnings of love between the recently widowed Mrs. Popov and Grigory Stepanovich Smirnov. In Russian the word for "bear" which has two meanings: an animal or a rather rude, clumsy, awkward man. The play is alternately titled The Boor. The fine cast includes Cathi Tully, Bob Miller, and William Duff-Griffin. Critic Reviews: "This is one of Chekhov's very short plays, an unquestionable comedy, as opposed to the author's full length dramas which he considered comedies, but which are certainly of a more serious ilk. The Bear condenses so much of human nature into this short, comical, bizarre, and ultimately triumphant act. Chekhov demonstrates how close (at times) is the relationship between anger and passion, and how strange and wonderful is the human condition." (Jack Coulehan, Annotated Nine Plays of Chekhov, Grosset & Dunlap) Members Reviews: Nice Chekhov Funny Short Play I really like Chekhov, and this was one I had not read before, as it is considered a play not a short story. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The story was funny, ironic and just a little dark. The players were good (but not great). I enjoyed both of the main characters, the dialog, and conclusion. It is only 29 minutes and costs $1.95 which was quite worth it (but dont use a full credit). Hiliarous Comedy Would you consider the audio edition of The Bear to be better than the print version? I would not know if the audio edition of The Bear to be better that the print version. I expected descriptions of scene changes and character expressions, movements, and gestures, as if I were reading a script. Instead, I got a full-cast performance of the play with sound effects included. What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bear? Oh, yes, my most memorable moment was when Elena growls at Smirnov and calls him a bear. It was so funny, I replayed it. Which scene was your favorite? I already said. The play hit its full stride with the Elena growling scene. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? Grrrrr. Any additional comments? I was quite pleased at how much Chekhov entertained me with his play. One does not usually associate him with humor, but here he was in his top form. funny story. Bad delivery. very funny and easy story. the delivery was a bit annoying as they seemed to not understand the characters and made the story a lot less funny than it should be.

Ce texte, à la fois fantastique et philosophique, est une véritable réflexion sur l'art, l'artiste et la création. Le jeune Nicolas Poussin, encore inconnu, rend visite au peintre Porbus dans son atelier. Il est accompagné du vieux maître Frenhofer, qui émet de savants commentaires sur le grand tableau que Porbus vient de terminer. Il s'agit de "Marie l'Égyptienne", dont Frenhofer fait l'éloge, mais qui lui paraît incomplet. En quelques coups de pinceau, le vieux peintre métamorphose le tableau de Porbus au point que "Marie l'Égyptienne" semble renaître à la vie après son intervention. Toutefois, si Frenhofer domine parfaitement la technique, il lui manque, pour son propre ouvrage, "La Belle Noiseuse", toile à laquelle il travaille depuis dix ans, le modèle en art idéal, une femme qui lui inspirerait la perfection vers laquelle il tend sans jamais l'atteindre. Ce futur chef-d'œuvre, que personne n'a encore jamais vu, serait le portrait de Catherine Lescault. Poussin propose au vieux maître de faire poser la femme qu'il aime : la belle Gillette, ce que Frenhofer accepte. La beauté de Gillette l'inspire à tel point qu'il termine "La Belle Noiseuse" très rapidement. Mais, lorsque Poussin et Porbus sont conviés à l'admirer, ils n'aperçoivent sur la toile qu'une petite partie d'un pied magnifique perdu dans une débauche de couleurs. La déception qui se lit sur leurs visages pousse le maître au désespoir. Le lendemain, Frenhofer meurt après avoir mis le feu à son atelier. La poursuite d'un idéal de perfection dans la création artistique peut-il conduire à la folie ? Cette histoire où l'on devine quelques figures mythiques, Orphée, Pygmalion, et Prométhée, peut le laisser penser. © Domaine public (P)2014 Compagnie du Savoir Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

But one day death announces itself to him, and to his shocked surprise he is brought face to face with his own mortality. How, Tolstoy asks, does an unreflective man confront his one and only moment of truth? A thoroughly absorbing and, at times, terrifying glimpse into the abyss of death, it is also a strong testament to the possibility of finding spiritual salvation. Members Reviews: Best story ever written Best story ever written. Allows life to be put in perspective. I've read this story several times over the years since my 20s. Luminous A tale of the end of life... seemingly so depressive and yet because of the genius of Tolstoy, the novella ends I,messed in light. A soul finding out about the truth of life... what's more wonderful? classic this is a very quick read, and good on many levels. he accurately describes the process of dying, as well as common reactions by the person and those around him. it can also be read much deeper, lots of symbolism I highly recommend reading it This book was the first sent to Prime Minister Steven Harper from Yann Martel. If you have not read Yann Martel's book on "101 Books to Prime Minister Steven Harper", I highly recommend reading it. I got "The Death of Ivan Illyich" in audio and it is great to walk and listen. Read Yann Martel's review of this book. Very Authentic Brilliantly captures the rage and impotence of a man confronted with his own mortality. This novella starts slowly but as the net begins to tighten around Ivan Ilych it becomes hard to put down. His bursts of irrational hope in the face of death are heart rending. His recognition that much of his adult life has been wasted chasing after status gives him a sense of nobility at a time when his dignity has been taken from him. In accompanying Ivan Ilych to the very edge of the abyss we look into our own future and see what awaits us there. This book feels very authentic and only a very hard heart would fail to be moved by its pathos Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Kreutzer Sonata Audiobook by Leo Tolstoy

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Kreutzer Sonata Author: Leo Tolstoy Narrator: Jonathan Oliver Format: Unabridged Length: 3 hrs and 59 mins Language: English Release date: 11-19-10 Publisher: Naxos AudioBooks Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 34 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: One of Tolstoys most important shorter works, The Kreutzer Sonata presents a problematic view of the relationship between the sexes and promotes abstinence as the solution. Pozdnyshev jealously observes the intimacy that emerges between his wife and a violin player. Haunted by The Kreutzer Sonata, over which they bonded, it plays round and round in Pozdnyshevs head, driving him to distraction and to an unquenchable rage. The Kreutzer Sonata is a psychologically fascinating novella, offering interesting insights into the power play between the sexes. Editorial Reviews: Less a story than a philosophical tract, this tale is told to a chance listener on a railway journey by a man who has murdered his wife and been exonerated on the grounds that she was unfaithful and deserved it. Tolstoy writes the murderer Pozdnyshev as distraught, given to uttering a strange emotional cry, which Jonathan Oliver renders brilliantly. Oliver's Pozdnyshev, high-strung and tormented, is convinced that his crime was caused by the nature of modern marriage and that any true Christian, married or not, must live celibate or risk his mortal soul. Since Pozdnyshev strikes the listener as delusional, but Tolstoy's afterword makes clear that he is the author's mouthpiece, this makes for a strangely dissonant experience, if a marvelous piece of acting. Members Reviews: Disturbing In "The Kreutzer Sonata," Tolstoy seems to be wanting to go Dostoevsky one better. His main character is a bitter, violent man filled with morbid jealousy and analyzing every action and motive with a stifling level of self-consciousness. He tells his story in the first person, to a fellow-traveller in a railway carriage: he killed his wife in a fit of jealous rage and was acquitted because it was a crime of passion. Jonathan Oliver narrates the story well, but it's a tough listen, and the little bit I've read about its publication history makes it sound like it was a tough read from the beginning. Was his wife really having an affair with a musician? It doesn't look good, but it's ambiguous; he doesn't actually catch them in the act, but he satisfies himself that he has enough evidence to plunge a dagger into her side. Only when he sees her, a few days later, lying dead in the coffin does he realize the enormity of what he's done. His monologue alternates between suprisingly modern-sounding observations on human sexuality and a prudish disgust with what, to him, seems more like a meat market than an elegant society. Everything seems to arouse him, either to rage or sexual passion: the rocking motion of a train, the "artificial" climax of a piece of music (Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata most specifically). What's most peculiar, though, is Tolstoy's afterword, included here. What did he think was the solution to this hypersexual conflict between men and women, a conflict that spills over too often into violent rage? Abstinence. Not abstinence before marriage: abstinence period. Only when most people learn to live without sex, he says, will we finally reach our highest level of achievement as a race.

Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 92 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: In this sequel to The Scarlet Pimpernel, Sir Percy Blakeney's arch-enemy travels to England in pursuit of the impudent enemy of the French Republic. Monsieur Chauvelin devises a dastardly plot to annihilate, once and for all, both Sir Percy and his beautiful wife, Marguerite. Lured to France, where the entire town of Boulogne is held hostage on their behalf, they seem to be hopelessly trapped. Will the Scarlet Pimpernel prevail? (P)1997 Blackstone Audio Inc. Critic Reviews: "Johanna Ward brings suspense and wit to this story of intrigue set in the days following the French Revolution....She makes good use of her native British and superb French accents to help create vivid and complex personalities. Ward's great sense of mood and timing carry listeners through to the very end." (AudioFile) Members Reviews: The difficult second album....... I relisten to "The Scarlet Pimpernel" frequently but this isn't going to make it to the repeats list. It lacks the humour and adventure of the original and spends too much time talking about how luuuuuuvly Blakeney is and how much she luuuuuuvs him and frankly it wears a bit thin after an hour or so. But maybe that's just me. Witty, funny and well read. I loved this book. It had me giggling from beginning to end. The reading was perfect. All the names, all the accents, all the witty dialogue. Fantastic. Wonderful Sequel The Scarlet Pimpernel is charming and intriguing historical fiction to rival the longer works of Dumas, and its sequel, The Elusive Pimpernel, lives up to the measure of the first novel. Good to see that I Will Repay, another in this series of books, is available. Would love to see more of Orczy and her Percy Blackeney novels. Bodice Ripping Would you listen to The Elusive Pimpernel again? Why? Maybe not. Who was your favorite character and why? Margo What about Johanna Wards performance did you like? timing Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Yes Any additional comments? There is a lot of bodice ripping and hand ringing, but it's a good ride nonetheless. Lots of jolly good fun and exciting intrigue. Any additional comments? I have enjoyed both the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Elusive Pimpernel very much. The hero of the book kept me laughing all the time. His duplicity was very amusing and I listened eagerly for his each new encounter to see what he had to say, or what amazing way he would handle the next situation. Yes, it has intrigue, conflict, and adventure, but the dialogue is also fun and kept me engaged. The time it was written in posed no issues. There was nothing "lost in translation". A fun read.

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Best of Franz Kafka's Short Stories Author: Franz Kafka Narrator: Lotte Lenya Format: Unabridged Length: 51 mins Language: English Release date: 04-01-11 Publisher: Saland Publishing Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 30 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Lotte Lenya reads "Up In The Gallery", "The Cares of a Family Man", "The Bucket Rider", "A Hunger Artist", and "A Fratricide". Members Reviews: Grandiloquent Old fashion production. Its affected style contrasts with Kafka's understated tone. The recordings are limited to a couple of hours and exclude some of Kafka's best short stories. LOTTE LENYA READS KAFKA This same recording was my introduction to Kafka [minus the unnecessary soundtrack] I was a son of the sixties and explored many things and during my travels found myself in the basement room with friends to listen to this same recording. We were spellbound and wanted to listen again but Seer said "No!. . .once a week only as l never want tire of this." And he was right. Each week we gathered with new friends to share our new find. The reader Lotte Lenya added to the gray atmosphere seen in most WW II films of Nazi occupation. Her voice has a harshness which accents each phrase akin to mood in his work. You will remember her as Colonel Klegg, the Soviet defector to Spectre in From Russia With Love. lf you don't remember. . .you will the instant you hear her first phrase. My only bad mark was adding music to detract from my experience. You will enjoy this. TD HANSON Awful I love Kafka but unfortunately the narrator has a very thick accent and it was hard to follow. I speak several languages and understand the need to be clear and concise. I also would have liked it if each short story was named beforehand. Disappointing. Very worthwhile for Kafka fans A very interesting set of recordings. Once I'd got used to Lotte Lenya's (Rosa Klebbe in 'From Russia with Love') accent (which didn't take long), this was a delight. She gives a very impassioned rendering of the stories and the the musical backing adds to the intensity of the reading, though it would have been fine without it. She was an inspired choice to narrate. I wonder if there are any other recordings in the archives? Doesnt work Would you try another book written by Franz Kafka or narrated by Lotte Lenya? Yes...if the was no music score running behind the narration.... Would you recommend The Best of Franz Kafka's Short Stories to your friends? Why or why not? Just couldn't separate the narration and music. Did Lotte Lenya do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How? Lotte's slavic pronunciation of English was the final nail in the coffin... Any additional comments? ...I reckon this is the one exception to the rule that audiobooks are the 'stereo' to the physical books 'mono'.... Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

"...the explication de texte which accompanies [Musa's] translation is instructively novel, always admirable..." his present work offers English listeners a lengthy appraisal which should figure in future scholarly discussions." (Choice) Members Reviews: Good classic; totally misleading description Any additional comments? Great classic if you're looking for it (and you know what you're getting in tootherwise it may be monotonous). However, Audible's description mentions the author's commentary on the text as being particularly good, but none of it is even included. That's why I bought this! Disappointed. Plus, the narrator really sounds like he's readingnot as good as most of the audiobook readers I'm used to, but acceptable nevertheless. A Classic I love the drama and performance of this. I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of classic literature. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry What a love poem!! What made the experience of listening to Dante's Vita Nuova the most enjoyable? Dante's verse is, as always, a joy to listen to. While it may be inaccessible in many cases, on the face of it alone, to have such passion with which to dedicate such a volume of work to one person is quite a thing in itself. So the shear magnitude of the writing process, the significance of what Dante went through to write this book, made it a compelling book. What did you like best about this story? There are many ways to see and feel love. Dante shows us how to 'live' love. These were, of course, different times, but everyone has experienced the emotional turbulence of trying to obtain the attention of the one you love, and therefore, one finds relevance in every poem. What three words best describe Tim Lundeens performance? Cold. Unenthusiastic. Effortless If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be? Love is life Any additional comments? This is clearly a classic book. Dante is obsessed with Beatrice and this is the published pining affection he holds for her. While that might not sound particularly appealing, remember that Dante is a master of verse and rhetoric. This captivating look into the process of desire may be much more than you bargained for. The narration lacks the passion that is evident in the book. This is always going to be a difficult endeavor, but it sounds like Lundeen is simply reading the words, rather than being part of your journey. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 5 votes Genres: Classics, European Literature Publisher's Summary: Haunting memories of the sins of the father and Oswald's heredity are the moving themes of this drama. Members Reviews: An edgy play about hereditary disease and an over protective mother "As snug as a yolk in an egg" meaning "being comfortable in a house" is an example of beautiful expressions used by the venerable and brilliant playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ghosts was highly controversial during Ibsen's time because of the disturbing themes in this edgy play. Themes like cohabitation, although common as garden variety vegetables today in Norway, challenged the social mores of Norway 150 years ago. Even the then Norwegian king found the play distasteful. The central figure in the play was the poor long suffering Mrs Alvin. Both her late husband and her son were afflicted with the "Benjamin Button's" disease with her son's condition surfacing only when he turned 16, devastating the poor mother. Despite Mrs Alvin's extensive combative measures to shield her son from her husband's sins, we once again witness that man is never master of his destiny. Like hereditary diseases, the sins of the fathers will be felt by the children and their children. What? Sexual secrets in families?? I'm a big fan of Ibsen's prescience in writing about issues that are still very current. "Ghosts" is one that explores the sexual secrets in families. The play was considered scandalous in the early 1880s when it first appeared, and the subject matter is scandalous still today. Five Stars One of Ibsen's most shocking plays. this is the best Ibsen play In my opinion, this is the best Ibsen play. It was fine and it arrived in a timely fashion All was as expected. I ordered a new edition. It was fine and it arrived in a timely fashion.. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

In der Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts gerät Michael Kohlhaas in einen Rechtsstreit mit dem Junker Wenzel von Tronka, der zwei seiner Pferde missbräuchlich verwendet hat. Kohlhaas, der mit aller Kraft versucht, auf normalem Wege zu seinem Recht zu kommen, bleibt auf der Strecke und muss sich schließlich mit Gewalt Recht verschaffen. Sein Irrweg durch das Brandenburg und Sachsen zur Zeit Martin Luthers endet jedoch in einem tragischen Schicksal, das er selbst nicht mehr bereit ist, ändern zu wollen. ©2014 hoerbuch.cc (P)2014 hoerbuch.cc Mitglieder Bewertungen: A German Classic about how the Rich steal from the less rich, since Centuries! A bit hard to read in old style German, but it augments the feeling of the time it plays in, so rather worth it. Five Stars Masterpiece ! Great story, difficult style The story itself is great, but author's style (many indirect discourses, person uttering some part of a dialogue, sometimes indirect, constantly switching and so on) and old german words (some without clear descendants today, some with just another spelling) makes it a pain to read. I could avance no more than a page per day. Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

Don't read this to your kids... I read this book as a little girl in Germany in the late 1940's and I bought the original German version again to re-live my reading experiences as a child.Even though life on the mountain with her grandfather and the goats, surrounded by all this Swiss postcard quality beauty, sounds pretty nice and even funny at times but that does not make up for the very sad story of a small orphaned girl that gets passed on from poor relative to poorer relative until her cousin finds a way to remove her to a foreign city in a neighboring country, many miles away from what she loved. She is hired (no pay) out to a rich household run by servants to function as amusement for a paralyzed daughter of a mostly absent father. The fact that she is much younger than the patient and has not had any schooling is not considered while she is ordered to attend homeschooling 8 grades above her skill level. She is treated as a lowly servant and expected to show gratitude above all. It goes on and on until the little girl is so homesick that her health is threatened and she is shipped back home. I cried and ached for her just as I did 67 years ago when I promised myself to never let anyone abuse me or patronize me no matter how rich or important they are. Spare your kids this horrible story.

L'action se situe durant la guerre de 1870 : dix personnes fuient Rouen, occupée par les soldats prussiens, pour gagner Dieppe en diligence. Parmi ces dix personnes, se trouvent des bourgeois, des commerçants, des nobles, et une prostituée, surnommée Boule de Suif, à cause de son embonpoint. "La femme, une de celles appelées galantes, était célèbre par son embonpoint précoce qui lui avait valu le surnom de Boule de Suif. Petite, ronde de partout, grasse à lard, avec des doigts bouffis, étranglés aux phalanges, pareils à des chapelets de courtes saucisses ; avec une peau luisante et tendue, une gorge énorme qui saillait sous sa robe, elle restait cependant appétissante et courue, tant sa fraîcheur faisait plaisir à voir. Sa figure était une pomme rouge, un bouton de pivoine prêt à fleurir ; et là-dedans s'ouvraient, en haut, deux yeux noirs magnifiques, ombragés de grands cils épais qui mettaient une ombre dedans ; en bas, une bouche charmante, étroite, humide pour le baiser, meublée de quenottes luisantes et microscopiques. Elle était de plus, disait-on, pleine de qualités inappréciables." © Domaine public (P)2016 Audiolude Avis des membres: It is badly incomplete! The central part of the story (almost one half) is missing, and this part is essential to understand the final message. In it, Maupassant makes a scathing satire of the French petite bourgeoisie and its lack of values. In sum, the most important part of the little book has been eliminated. Someone who wants to improve his/her french and does not know, might be interested in this free booklet. Typical Maupassant, a classic I read this one several times in the past but had to reread it because it was not on my shelf at home. It is a great story and shows true to life human charcters, some very unlikeable and others with unexpected qualities. A very good story. Well worth reading. Hypocrisy á la fin de siécle ...
