    "Tell me what happened while there's still time," demands the dying Senator Adam Sunraider to the itinerate Negro preacher whom he calls Daddy Hickman. As a young man, Sunraider was Bliss, an orphan taken in by Hickman and raised to be a preacher like himself. Bliss's history encompasses the joys of young southern boyhood; bucolic days as a filmmaker, lovemaking in a field in the Oklahoma sun. And behind it all lies a mystery: how did this chosen child become the man who would deny everything to achieve his goals?

    Where does Juneteenth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books and certainly one of the best narrators I've enjoyed in a decade of Audible experiences.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rev. A.Z. Hickman is a total, compelling protagonist, clear-eyed and poetic.


    What does Joe Morton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Joe Morton should be performing this book on stage. He paints this book with his voice, and listening to him is definitely a richer experience than reading the book in print.

  • The Well of Lost Plots: A Thursday Next Novel

    Thursday Next, the forthright and unstoppable detective of Jasper Fforde's first two novels, The Eyre Affair and Lost in a Good Book, rides again in The Well of Lost Plots. Get ready for time travel, adventure, mystery, romance, and crime in a literary caper that pokes fun at fiction itself.

    Anna says: "Best Yet!"
    "An Audible Favorite of Mine"
    Overall

    I downloaded this book almost 3 years ago and I still keep it on my Ipod to replay parts when I want to smile. It's a book lover's romp, self-mocking and unpretentious. Think of Douglas Adams at ease. I have listened to all of the Thursday Next books, and I like them all. This one is a little gem on its own, though, and the narrator's voice is spun gold.
