    After 30 years and with three million copies in print, Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War classic, The Killer Angels, remains as vivid and powerful as the day it was originally published.

    What did you love best about The Killer Angels?

    I really appreciated how the author filled in the gaps in dialog and story. I felt right and presented the narrative from a neither Southern or Northern Point of view, but rather a human one. In the end you coming out of the book feeling the weight of human drama.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Killer Angels?

    The whole book was very well done, but I am always taken in by a good introduction. This one was especially colorful to me as you begin to picture for yourself the scenery and the charterers.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hoye – was your favorite?

    They are all very well done. I have no idea how a narrator can keep consistency with so many varied charaters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was all very well done, but as in the movie version the gallant charge by union forces from Maine is very moving.

  • Detroit: A Biography

    When we think of Detroit, we think first of the auto industry and its slow, painful decline, then maybe the sounds of Motown, or the long line of professional sports successes. But economies are made up of people, and the effect of the economic downfall of Detroit is one of the most compelling stories in America. Detroit: A Biography by journalist and author Scott Martelle is about a city that rose because of the most American of traits - innovation, entrepreneurship, and an inspiring perseverance.

    What made the experience of listening to Detroit the most enjoyable?

    The author shares the major turning points in the city's life. In it I began to feel both a vested interest and a sympathy for the people who put so much stock in it's well being.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I think the thing that hit me strongest was the broad view with which the book was written. The cities decline was something that was set in motion many years before.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
