    The casino was alive and well in Will Roger's time. It was called Wall Street then as well. But mainstream media allowed for the total exposure of the criminal greed of the Street. Bankers were determined not to allow that mistake to rain on their next financial orgy, so that Will Rogers would have had no voice in the days of the ponzi housing bubble and subsequent crash. Things are different now, and mainstreet is even more vulnerable than in the roaring twenties.

    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming The Dark Knight Rises, lent her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    What disappointed you about A Game of Thrones?

    Just too many unbelievable scenes. Wolves raised by kids that basically decide what is the correct thing to do. Just too much of a stretch and it keeps jumping from scene to scene. Really boring to listen to.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Maybe nonfiction!


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

    This is my first--and probably last!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
