  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of the best books I have listened to. I did not want the story to end.


    What about Craig Wasson’s performance did you like?

    Craig Wasson is the best narrator. He brings the story to life.

    "Uniquely written"

    I loved this book. It is uniquely written with the main character telling the story. It is an excellent look back to life in these times and appreciate how different their lives were.

    Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys - Caleb, Fox, and Gage - went on a camping trip to the Pagan Stone. And 21 years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men - and the women who love them.

    Overall

    Nora Roberts has a new fan in me. This book was excellent. I was sorry when the book ended. I immediately downloaded the next 2 books and can't wait for the story to continue.

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom and many other award-winning books, James M. McPherson is America's preeminent Civil War historian. Now, in this collection of provocative and illuminating essays, McPherson offers fresh insight into many of the most enduring questions about one of the defining moments in our nation's history.

    "Mighty Value!"
    Overall

    Excellent historical honest perspective of the Civil War. I plan to listen to this multiple time to retain the historical value.

  • The Last Campaign: Robert F. Kennedy and 82 Days That Inspired America

    Story

    With new research and previously unavailable interviews, The Last Campaign provides an intimate and absorbing historical narrative that goes right to the heart of America's deepest despairs - and most fiercely held dreams - and tells us more than we had understood before about this complicated man and the heightened dramas of his times.

    D. Littman says: "not good political history"
    "Very Well Done!"
    Overall

    This book provides an insight to REK without idolizing him. He is portrayed as a leader who struggled as we all do and was stolen from us too early. It also provides excellent insight into concepts of the times.

  • The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family

    Story

    This epic work tells the story of the Hemingses, whose close blood ties to our third president had been systematically expunged from American history until very recently. Now, historian and legal scholar Annette Gordon-Reed traces the Hemings family from its origins in Virginia in the 1700s to the family's dispersal after Jefferson's death in 1826. It brings to life not only Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson but also their children and Hemings's siblings, who shared a father with Jefferson's wife, Martha.

    Dianne says: "Fascinating"
    "Great Historical Value"
    Overall

    This book provides great historical value of not only the lives of Jefferson and the Hemingses; but also of the values of the time. It provides insight into the thoughts of the era. I found it fascinating. We should become educated of the thoughts and customs of the times as provided in this book before we judge the actions of our historical leaders.
