Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Elements of Style (Taschenbuch)
This is, of course, a classic, but it should be noted that some of the examples in the book have been updated. The revisions are subtle and pleasing. They don't change the book radically, but make it just slightly more interesting. Toni Morrison is mentioned, for instance. The book is essentially still the same firm, friendly, concise Strunk and White most of us grew up with.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book Beyond Description, 10. Juli 2006
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Brave New World (Taschenbuch)
This book was paired with Giorgio Kostantinos'-The Quest, as 'better together' Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a classic science fiction work that continues to be a significant warning to our society today. Tony Britton, the reader, does an excellent job of portraying clinical detachment as the true nature of the human incubators is revealed. The tone lightens during the vacation to the wilderness and the contrast is even more striking. Each character is given a separate personality by Britton's voices. As the story moves from clinical detachment to the human interest of Bernard, the nonconformist, and John, the "Savage," listeners are drawn more deeply into the plot. Finally, the reasoned tones of the Controller explain away all of John's arguments against the civilization, leading to John's death as he cannot reconcile his beliefs to theirs.The abridgement is very well done, and the overall message of the novel is clearly presented. The advanced vocabulary and complex themes lend themselves to class discussion and further research. Also, check out Quest, you'll love it!
