  • The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl

    Story

    The dust storms that terrorized America's High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since, and the stories of the people that held on have never been fully told. Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist and author Timothy Egan follows a half-dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region.

    Laurie says: "more than grapes of wrath"

    Overall

    Really slow going and repetitive

  • Atlas Shrugged

    Story

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Robert says: "Over before you know it"
    "Interesting story of Goverment meddling"
    Overall

    Rather long and not interesting for my spouse

    Finally, the epic tale that has never been told: the tragic story of the destruction of Superman's home planet. Everyone knows how Kal-El (Superman) was sent to Earth before his planet exploded. Now Kevin J. Anderson unfolds the riveting backstory of this iconic superhero. The Last Days of Krypton is a sweeping tale of the politics and betrayals that blinded both heroes and villains to the disaster that would destroy Krypton.

    MM says: "Great book, Lousy Narrator"
    "Interesting background"
    Overall

    Nice to get one persons opinion about life on Krypton before Superman arrives on earth

    Story

    Maggie Tulliver, whose father owns a mill perched on the banks of the River Floss, is intelligent and imaginative beyond the understanding of her community, her relatives, and particularly her brother Tom. Despite their opposite temperaments, Maggie and Tom are united by a strong bond. But this bond suffers when Tom's sense of family honor leads him to forbid her to associate with the one friend who appreciates her intelligence and imagination.

    connie says: "not Eliot's best"
    "Couldn't understand the accent of reader"
    Overall

    I stopped listening in 1st chapter. Would be better if not so cockney

    If you want to understand the daily life and psychology of the Late Middle Ages, The Canterbury Tales provides one of the very best means of doing so. Within its stories are to be found a broad range of society - high and low, male and female, rich and poor - who express their innermost beliefs and extravagant fantasies in a series of stories they tell as they make their way to Canterbury cathedral.

    Tad Davis says: "A great performance and TRULY unabridged!"
    "Couldn't finish"
    Overall

    I found my self daydreaming during the read and lost what was going on. If you listened intently, it was understandable

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all...his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

    Slow in beginning, but interesting as it unfolds

    Story

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "I listened twice"
    Overall

    What a great reader in John Lee, and the storyline was worth the time to listen to Twice!
