    The Chessmen of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

    The Chessmen of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

    This is an audiobook of The Chessmen of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, narrated by Mark Nelson.
    The Chessmen of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs is the fifth novel in the Barsoom series. It was published as a 6-part serial between February and March of 1922, before being released as a complete novel in the November of the same year. As of 2020, this is the last Barsoom novel in the public domain. Assuming no changes in copyright law, we can expect to see A Fighting Man of Mars, published in 1928, enter the public domain on January 1st, 2024.
    The heroine of the story is Tara, the daughter of John Carter and Dejah Thoris. Gahan, prince of Gathol, wants her hand in marriage. Tara is against this; she doesn’t see him as a suitable partner, thinking him a dandy. One day, when shes out on her flier, a storm strands her in an unknown area. While Gahan seeks to rescue her, she comes across Kaldanes and Rykors, grotesque creatures that don’t have anything nice planned for Tara.

    Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

    Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

    This is an audiobook of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, narrated by Peter John Keeble.
    There’s few lines in literature as famous as “Pleasure sir, may I have some more?” But if there’s one thing Charles Dickens knows, it’s how to write a novel that, almost two centuries after its publication, is still going strong and being adapted. Oliver Twist (full title: Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy’s Progress) tells the story of a young orphan, Oliver, who has some not-so-good luck. He’s taken in by several cruel “benefactors”, shuffled around and getting lost, until he finally lands at a place he might call him. At heart, though, he’s a kind boy who doesn’t wish to do ill. It’s all well and good, then, that he gets a happy ending.
    Still, he did reach happily ever after easily. Dickens explores what the life of a young outcast was like in the early-1800s, illustrating the practice of child labor at a time where workers rights weren’t exactly the talk of the town. Poverty & social class are both major themes in the book. The highly stratified nature of pre-Victorian and Victorian times led to a divisive class structure that wasn’t easily traversed. While it was a time of rapid expansion and industrialization, it also meant that the least fortunate and able were left by the wayside, or worse. As in most cases, the well off were few and far between; most had to subsist or scrounge to stay alive. This, in turn, led to crime – another important theme. A naive Oliver is roped into schemes where, after they fail, he is left as a patsy.

    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

    Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

    This is an audiobook of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, by Elizabeth Klett.
    First published in 1837, Jane Eyre had a powerful impact on prose fiction. It focuses on the moral & spiritual development of its main character, Jane Eyre, through first-person narrative. Its importance and influence was highlighted in 2003, when the novel was ranked #10 in the BBC’s The Big Read survey.
    The novel has five distinct parts: the beginning, where Jane is emotionally and physically abused by her aunt and cousins; her schooling, where she makes friends but is still oppressed; as a governess, where she falls in love with her employer; her time at Moor House, where she is proposed to; and her reunion with her employer as a governess.
    Throughout each of the parts, Brontë brings up the eminent issues & ideas of the time and provides her perspective (often critical) on them. The full title of the novel is Jane Eyre: An Autobiography. While a work of fiction, it’s obvious that Brontë’s own experiences helped shape the book. While at school, Jane befriends Helen Burns. Helen eventually dies of tuberculosis in Jane’s arms. The character of Helen is based on Charlotte Brontës own sister, Maria Brontë, who died at 11 of the same disease.

    Emma by Jane Austen

    Emma by Jane Austen

    This is an audiobook of Emma by Jane Austen, narrated by Elizabeth Klett.
    Love is a fickle thing, as Emma by Jane Austen shows us. It might catch you unawares or unfold slowly until, before you know it, you’re in deep. Still, there are some that try to bring it about. Sometimes, it’s because they see a spark between two people and thing they should be together. But just as often, it might just be a romantic notion that two people are meant for (or perfect for) each other. Emma Woodhouse is the latter. While she makes a successful introduction between two people (her governess Miss Taylor and Mr. Weston), she fancies herself as a matchmaker.

    The Worm Ouroboros by E. R. Eddison

    The Worm Ouroboros by E. R. Eddison

    This is an audiobook of The Worm Ouroboros by E. R. Eddison, narrated by Jason Mills.
    It’s not easy writing a high fantasy classic. Your competition is immense. You’ve got J. R. R. Tolkien, George R. R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, Ursula K. Le Guin, Terry Pratchett, C. S. Lewis, and so many more it’s impossible to make a dent, even with a long list. But in the top echelons, there’s another name – E. R. Eddison, author of The Worm Ouroboros.
    Eddison was different from Tolkien in some important ways, though. For one, Tolkien placed a heavy premium on the linguistic aspects of his created world. His names had meaning, and the overall legendarium is steeped in mythology. In contrast, E. R. Eddison had begun thinking up The Worm Ouroboros while he was a pre-teen child. He imagined some of the story, the characters, and the setting then – and seemed to have kept parts of it. This is especially notable in the names for some of his characters: Lord Spitfire, La Fireez, Fax Fay Faz, Goldry Bluszco, etc.

    The Republic by Plato

    The Republic by Plato

    This is an audiobook of The Republic by Plato, narrated by Bob Neufeld.
    The Republic by Plato, written around 380 BC, is the best known work of Plato as well as one of the most widely read & influential works of philosophy ever written. It is written as a dialogue – specifically, a Socratic dialogue. These particular works are written to solve philosophical problems & concerns by way of two or more characters conversing with each other, with Socrates often appearing as the main subject.
    The Republic discusses many of the philosophies of Plato, including his theory of forms, the immortality of the soul, the ideal of the philosopher-king, and more. It is written as 10 books, each of which features Socrates engaging in philosophical debate & Socratic dialogue with other characters. The Republic has been commented on by scores of philosophers, writers, and rulers – each of whom seem to respect it for its place in antiquity (at the least), even if they might disagree with Plato on the substance.
