The Ultimate Harry Potter and Philosophy
- Hogwarts for Muggles
- By: William Irwin, Gregory Bassham
- Narrated by: Susan Duerden
- Length: 7 hrs and 55 mins
Harry Potter has been heralded as one of the most popular book series of all time and the philosophical nature of Harry, Hermione, and Ron's quest to rid the world of its ultimate evil is one of the many things that make this series special. The Ultimate Harry Potter and Philosophy covers all seven titles in J.K. Rowling's groundbreaking series and takes fans back to Godric's Hollow to discuss life after death, to consider what moral reasoning drove Harry to choose death, and to debate whether Sirius Black is a man or a dog.
Well worth my time!

Interesting subject, spoilt by an irritating narrator. Would not recommend. Such a pity the ladies voice overrides the words.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
Unique, Funny, Genuine.

A totally absorbing story, especially for those of us with technical/engineering background.
A great narrative told in the first person, a likable main character and a very believable plot.
I look forward to listening/reading more of Andy's novels.
