This is a phenomenal piece of work perfectly executed in the oral format- it’s erudite and witty and ultimately profound in its historical and spiritual revelations.

Garrett fagan is an awesome source of historical information, entertaining, illuminating, articulate and always informative. For anyone with even the slightest interest in Rome I highly recommend journeying with Garrett upon the history of this stupendous culture.

Spooky good prose, brilliantly evocative of a far away time of blood & dust... narration of Poe is A-grade and the substance of the work is undeniable ... highly recommend

Dune is a colossal book and a magnificent achievement and well worth listening to as an audiobook. The production is bizarre- the inconsistent use of character actors is baffling - were there budget cuts? Dune has a checkered history with movie and tv attempts and strangely this flirtation with difficult adaptations has found its way into the world of audio books. However the winner here is frank Herbert and dune - it is top shelf genius no risk.
