Badly written but hopefully comical. Typical stories from the life of a first-year university student. This covers alcohol, food, friendship, enemies, more alcohol, and just a lot of random events that happened during my first year living at halls. Starting uni soon? Moving into halls? Or just wanting to know what life is like living away from home for the first time? This audiobook has it all. Well. Not really. I guess this could give future students a look into what life could be like. It could be used as a guide to not follow in my footsteps. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aaron Ryan, Jacob Evans.

The campus of Maine´s Bowmouth College looks like a picture postcard of New England-snow-covered lawns, students in colorful ski parkas, icicles dangling on the ivied halls. Sarah Deane-English Fellow with an honorary degree in sleuthing-expects to spend a quiet term here taking some graduate courses and doing a little teaching. But then Sarah finds that someone´s organized an advanced course in murder. The first lesson comes when a woman student is found frozen into a prize-winning snow sculpture during Carnival weekend.

Master Dogen writes, ´´To study the way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self.” How do we study ourselves, our lives, our world, the questions of why and how? Do we refuse to study them? In practice, experience and explanations of experience become the same thing. How are we students? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Sensei.

In der Täuschung, eine Zauberei zu vollführen, legt ein Student sich ins Grab und stirbt dort vor Furcht. Eine erotische Geschichte aus dem lustvollen Leben im Mittelalter... Die unanständigen Geschichten von den Gattinnen, die ihren Männern Hörner aufsetzen, von den Frauen, die sich mit Brüdern, Schwägern, Vettern und anderen Blutsverwandtschaften mischen. Von den Männern, die nicht weniger sündigen als die Weiber, die ihr Weib allein im Bette vor Kälte erfrieren lassen und ehebrecherisch anderen Weibern nachlaufen. Geleitet von der Erwägung, erlauchteste gnädige Frau, dass unsere Reden in gewissem Sinne die Herzen aller Hörer traurig gestimmt haben, will ich nun eine Geschichte erzählen, in welcher, obwohl zum Schlüsse das, was ich zu berichten beabsichtige, einen beweinenswerten Ausgang genommen hat, trotzdem hie und da Dinge vorkommen, die an das Lächerliche streifen und die bedrückten Gemüter ein wenig aufheitern können. Ferner ist auch dieser Vorfall sehr verwandt mit dem, an welchem der hochgelehrte und wohledle Giulio Gesare und ich soeben darzulegen versucht haben, dass solche Zaubereien fast immer ein übles Ende nehmen. Audible weist darauf hin, dass dieser Titel für Hörer unter 18 Jahren nicht geeignet ist. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Susanne Rabl.

A contemporary Los Angeles story of uncrossable social lines, allegiance and betrayal, immeasurable power, and the ways the present is continually shaped by the past. Rick Nagano is a graduate student in the history department at USC, struggling to make rent on the South Los Angeles apartment near the neighborhood where his family once lived. When he lands a job as a research assistant for the elderly Mrs. W--, the heir to an oil fortune, he sees it at first simply as a source of extra cash. But as he grows closer to the iconoclastic, charming, and feisty Mrs. W--, he gets drawn into a world of privilege and wealth far different from his racially mixed, blue-collar beginnings. Putting aside his half-finished dissertation, Rick sets up office in Mrs. W--´s grand Bel Air mansion and begins to transcribe her journals - which document an old Los Angeles not described in his history books. He also accompanies Mrs. W-- to venues frequented by the descendants of the land and oil barons who built the city. One evening at an event, he meets Fiona Morgan - the elegant scion of an old steel family - who takes an interest in his studies. Irresistibly drawn to Fiona, he agrees to help her with a project of questionable merit in the hopes he´ll win her favor. A Student of History explores both the beginnings of Los Angeles and present-day dynamics of race and class. It offers a window into the usually hidden world of high society and the influence of historic families on current events. Like Great Expectations and The Great Gatsby, it features, in Rick Nagano, a young man of modest means who is navigating a world where he doesn´t belong. Set in a modern-day Los Angeles that´s both familiar and unknown, A Student of History is a story of uncrossable social lines, allegiance and betrayal, immeasurable power, and the ways the present is continually shaped by the past. 1.

For seven months, anthropologist Blackwell James has lived among the Wantayo people of the Amazon, immersing himself in their culture in order to collect data for his dissertation. Trouble is, he hasn’t done much research. Instead, he’s just hung out with the tribe, resulting in some fair skills with a bow and arrow but little else. When Blackwell returns to Columbia University with a trunk full of hallucinogenic vines but no research notes, his frustrated advisor packs him off to Los Angeles to assist a colleague with a primate experiment. But for an East Coaster freshly returned from the jungles of South America, Hollywood is a surreal new world, home to a cutthroat tribe of actors and filmmakers scrambling for money and fame. Caught up in the secret ambitions of his new employers, Blackwell begins a strange trip through the surreal world of movie stars, murder, and money. A secret society, a ghost town, two large chimpanzees, and several shamanistic drug-induced journeys round out this outrageous novel, which features ´´cameos” by Sylvester Stallone, Johnny Depp, and Steven Spielberg. Gleefully continuing the great literary tradition of comic Hollywood novels, The Graduate Student is an exuberant and riveting ride. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Doersch.
