  • The Grapes of Wrath

    • By John Steinbeck

    At once naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics. Although it follows the movement of thousands of men and women and the transformation of an entire nation during the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s, The Grapes of Wrath is also the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, who are forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

    Dan Harlow says: "Almost more relevant now than when it was written"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Grapes of Wrath to be better than the print version?

    I have read the book and seen the movie. The audio edition is in a whole different category.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Grapes of Wrath?

    When the fight was prevented at the government camp.


    What does Dylan Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The inflection in his voice and his pronunciation of the colloquialisms.

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (31 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Ken Follett
    • Narrated By John Lee
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Story
    (3992)

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"
    "Great story, great history lesson"
