    Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller's masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for 27 years after its first publication in Paris in 1943. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller's famed mixture of memoir and fiction.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Miller has talent, no one denies that. But dear, sweet Jesus why waste it on this smut? I didn't read any reviews prior to buying, so the fault is mine. I just don't know why this is on so many top 100 lists.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Henry Miller again?

    no


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Campbell Scott?

    I have, The Shining by Stephen King. Awesome pick for that one. This time he came off a a bit monotonous.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    What other book might you compare Gone with the Wind to and why?

    N/A


    What about Linda Stephens’s performance did you like?

    She differentiates between the characters very well.


    Who was the most memorable character of Gone with the Wind and why?

    Scarlet O'hara, every other sentence is about her.


    Any additional comments?

    Never would have imagined that I would have enjoyed this as much as I did. I learned more about Georgia history than I ever did in school. I enjoyed the historical accounts of the book as much as I did the story, frequently laughing while in traffic.
