    The Easter Rising of 1916 was a major turning point in Irish history. Peopled by patriots and poets, fueled by a desperate desire for freedom, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I, the rebellion is a story of tremendous power and unique poignancy.

    Story
    Where does 1916 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's right up there


    What did you like best about this story?

    Narration is Great. Story vividly told.


    Have you listened to any of Fiacre Douglas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first in a series of Five. Unfortunately this is the ONLY one on Audible


    If you could take any character from 1916 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Ned, by far.


    Any additional comments?

  • The Tin Roof Blowdown: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    If you could sum up The Tin Roof Blowdown in three words, what would they be?

    The writing and the prose were very good and enhanced by listening to the audible version narrated by Will Patton. I will certainly continue reading the Dave Robicheaux series now that I have discovered him.
