A Rumor of War
by Philip Caputo

A Rumor of War

When it first appeared, A Rumor of War brought home to American readers, with terrifying vividness and honesty, the devastating effects of the Vietnam War on the soldiers who fought there. And while it is a memoir of one young man’s experiences and therefore deeply personal, it is also a book that speaks powerfully about the larger themes of human conscience, good and evil, and the desperate extremes men are forced to confront in any war.

A platoon commander in the first combat unit sent to fight in Vietnam, Lieutenant Caputo landed at Danang on March 8, 1965, convinced that American forces would win a quick and decisive victory over the Communists. Sixteen months later and without ceremony, Caputo left Vietnam a shell-shocked veteran whose youthful idealism and faith in the rightness of the war had been utterly shattered. Caputo gives us an unflinching view not only of remarkable bravery and heroism but also of the atrocities committed in Vietnam by ordinary men so numbed by fear and desperate to survive that their moral distinctions had collapsed.

BENEATH THE WHEEL
by Herman Hesse
Herman Hesse is one of the great literary figures to emerge from Germany in this century. He earned a Pulitzer Prize for his work, which includes Siddharta, Steppenwolf and Narcissus and Goldmund.

Beneath the Wheel is one of his earlier novels in which he reveals to youth the vital breathings of vernal growth, quickening their heartbeats with mysteries too deep for words. It is the story of Hans Giebenrath and his journey from adolescent schoolboy to manhood and how he endured the pain of finding his soul had left that childhood land which can never be found again.

Published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is one of London'smost-read books, and it is generally considered one of his best.

This great adventure novel is the story of Buck, a dog abducted from his home in Northern California and thrust into the merciless world of the Arctic north to be trained as a sled dog. It is the story of desperate men and the lure of new-found gold in the 1890’s Klondike Gold Rush.

To survive on the outer edges of civilization, Buck mustendure the bitter cold and treacherous landscape and adapt to the savagery of a life ruled by the laws of club and fang. In the process, his natural killer instincts, made dormant by his brush with civilization, awaken. He must answer the lure of a strange and age-old call.

A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens

Christmas Carol
First published in 1843, A Christmas Carol has been called the most inspired of Dickens' writings. In this deeply moving story, he has immortalized the spirit of the happiest and the most beautiful of all our holidays.

A Christmas Carol is a Victorian morality tale of an old and bitter miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, who undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night. If the experience doesn't change Scrooge's ways, he will end up walking the Earth forever being nothing but an invisible and lonely ghost, like his deceased friend Jacob Marley.

Mr. Scrooge is a financier/moneychanger who has devoted his life to the accumulation of wealth. He holds anything other than money in contempt, including friendship, love, and the Christmas season.

The Complete Sonnets of William Shakespeare
by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare

William Shakespeare wrote many poems in the unique style of Sonnets. A sonnet is a rhymed poem of only 14 lines expressing a single idea or sentiment. The Shakespearean Sonnet has four stanzas, or three quatrains and a couplet.

Now all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets—the complete collection—are presented for your enjoyment in this audio book.

Only Ronald Colman could maintain the inspiration of the noblest lyrics in our language. This reading by the distinguished actor is so devoid of personal ego, it allows the listener to recapture the pure beauty of the words—truly a masterpiece of re-creation.
