    Maureen Johnson, the somewhat irregular mother of Lazarus Long, wakes up in bed with a man and a cat. The cat is Pixel, well-known to fans of the New York Times best seller The Cat Who Walks through Walls. The man is a stranger to her, and besides that, he is dead.

    William says: "Do not make this your first Heinlein!"
    "I wish the reader had more inflection in her voice"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This has always been one of my favorite Heinlein stories


    What other book might you compare To Sail Beyond the Sunset to and why?

    All of the Lazarus Long stories are great


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

    I feel it would have been better with a smokier voice

    Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 - when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate - and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister", a brutal man who terrorizes her.

    Would you listen to The Color Purple again? Why?

    Definitely! The story was brought to life in my mind.


    What other book might you compare The Color Purple to and why?

    It is as good as "Fried Green Tomatoes"


    What about Alice Walker’s performance did you like?

    She painted pictures in my mind. To have the author of a story do the telling of it is a wonderful thing. Who else and give it such life
