  • Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon & the Journey of a Generation

    Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon remain among the most enduring and important women in popular music. Their stories trace the arc of the now-mythic generation known as "the 60s" - the female version. Filled with the voices of dozens of these women's intimates, this alternating biography reads like a novel. Except it's all true.

    Overall

    Art and music reflects a culture at a particular time. The music/lyrics from these women have stood the test of time. Weller captures the time and the emotions that the lyrics describes. I have a better understanding of this period as I was a teenager/young adult during this period. An awesome "read".

    Story
    (1100)

    A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder? A dying old man cared for by the son he pummeled mercilessly. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring racking up millions in stolen goods. A brutal and unscrupulous gangster. A wandering husband, rich and powerful. A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt thinking he can beat the system. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers that may be worse than the pain of his loss.

    Story

    Being an avid fan of the Kinsey Milhone Alphabet Series, I think this one is one of the top 3. A very good story with intricate story lines. I couldn???t stop listening! Judy Kaye is as usual an excellent ???actor???. I downloaded the book when first available and planned to listen to one or two chapters or so a week. Didn't happen!

    Story

    In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. Wilkerson interviewed more than a thousand people, and gained access to previously untapped data and official records, to write this definitive and vividly dramatic account of how these American journeys unfolded, altering our cities, our country, and ourselves.

    Lila says: "Superior non-fiction"
    "This is a history of my family members."

    Story

    This is a history of my family. A history that I lived as a child but did not know why a majority of my aunts and uncles moved "up north" from Alabama. I thought I knew my family's history. The Warmth of Other Suns informed me that I did not. My sons have been charged to listen or read this history our history. I left the South in the late sixties for a better life. I have no regrets. This book should be a must read for all people as it is the story of mankind and an American history that should be told.
