    Mary Mallon was a courageous, headstrong Irish immigrant woman who bravely came to America alone, fought hard to climb up from the lowest rung of the domestic service ladder, and discovered in herself an uncanny, and coveted, talent for cooking. Working in the kitchens of the upper class, she left a trail of disease in her wake, until one enterprising and ruthless "medical engineer" proposed the inconceivable notion of the "asymptomatic carrier" - and from then on Mary Mallon was a hunted woman.

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

    I am very happy to find novels, fiction or not, that deal with 19th century USA. Fever fits perfectly into this need to feel present in that past world. Candace Thaxton's delivery is very good at creating the individual characters and a very modern,at ease description of the city of New York at the turn of the century. I loved it. I felt I understood how it would be to walk down the lower East side of the city at that time. As a modern working woman, i also appreciate hearing a description of what a working woman of that time had to do to get and hold a job, even what types of jobs were available to women.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    • UNABRIDGED (40 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

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

    As I have learned, to enjoy an audio book, the book must be narrated well. This book is done very well on that reguard. A bad narration really does kill the experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tom Builder. So far, his story is romantic, not too violent for my taste.
