    This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer and his family in old agrarian China. The humble Wang Lung glories in the soil he works, nurturing the land as it nurtures him and his family. Nearby, the nobles of the House of Hwang consider themselves above the land and its workers; but they will soon meet their own downfall. The working people riot, breaking into the homes of the rich and forcing them to flee. When Wang Lung shows mercy to one noble and is rewarded, he begins to rise in the world, even as the House of Hwang falls.

    Overall

    I had seen the 1930's movies in the '60's when I was 10 and the book has the same effect, it will long remain in your memory of the people who lived the lives within the pages. The history and culture are definate of the times Ms Buck shows us. This is a classic story and it continues to live on in literary history

    Story
    If you could sum up A Redbird Christmas in three words, what would they be?

    This is abosuletly a great story anytime of the year but perfect for Christmas. Fannie creates such real people in her books. I live in Tennessee and have been in various towns of Alabama and have met people in small towns who gather around a new person to welcome them into the community. They will also gather about anyone who needs help. I gave the cd version to a friend and she really liked it. I will buy more Fannie Flagged unabridged stories.


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

    I've heard Welcome to the World Baby Girl, Fried Green Tomatoes at Whistle Stop Cafe, Can't Wait To Get to Heaven


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

    Well since they're a creation of Ms Flagg I would like to dine with her. I would enjoy hearing more stories as this and how she is able to make them so vivid.


    Any additional comments?

    Please offer more of her books on Audible - unabridged.

  • Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy

    Story
    (188)

    One day, 14-year-old Sophie Amundsen comes home from school to find two notes in her mailbox, with one question on each: "Who are you?" and "Where does the world come from?" From that irresistible beginning, Sophie becomes obsessed with questions that take her far beyond what she knows of her Norwegian village. Through those letters, she enrolls in a kind of correspondence course, covering Socrates to Sartre, with a mysterious philosopher, while receiving letters addressed to another girl.

    Steven says: "Great introduction to Western Philosophy"
    "A Story within a Philosophy history overview"
    Overall

    This was an awesome book. I've long been curious about Philosophy and the philosophers. I have the book to read but could only focus on a couple of chapters focusing on the details. Then listening I was in rap attention of each episode of the chapters and characters. What a surprise ending, or did it end? You will enjoy it for its story telling and what you learn of Philosophy as well.
