    In this captivating memoir, the man whom Julia Child has called "the best chef in America" tells the story of his rise from a frightened apprentice in an exacting Old World kitchen to an Emmy Award-winning superstar who taught millions of Americans how to cook and shaped the nation's tastes in the bargain.

    Linda Zimmerman says: "WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RECIPES???"
    "a great listen..a great life"
    Overall

    I thought this book was fun and delicious! It is fascinating to hear about his experiences, what he went thru to become the master he is. I value Jacques Pepin's gift to the culinary world even more after this book.

  • The Judgment of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade that Gave the World Impressionism

    While the Civil War raged in America, another very different revolution was beginning to take shape across the Atlantic, in the studios of Paris. The artists who would make Impressionism the most popular art form in history were showing their first paintings amid scorn and derision from the French artistic establishment. Indeed, no artistic movement has ever been, at its inception, quite so controversial.

    Stephen says: "A marvelous book"
    "Great book....."
    Overall

    But not for audio, unless you have a real grasp on the artists during this time.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone looking for a great listen won’t be able to resist Jane Austen’s delightful classic of love and manners in Regency England. Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    Victoria says: "loved it."
    "Wonderful in everyway!"
    Overall

    I could listen to this 1,000 times. What a wonderful narration and or course, a wonderful story. I wish they had Kate Reading (the narrator) read all Jane Austen books.

    In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. But one woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the peal of bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair with the young queen.

    Sarah says: "Interesting new twist on the"
    "a bad romance novel"
    Overall

    I too enjoy reading about Elizabeth, the reason I purchased this book. I really wish I did not waste my time. This book took all the greatness away from the Queen and made it seem as if she could not make a move without Robert. If you love historic facts and stories, I would not waste your time on this "harlequin romance"
