    Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents and an unusual breed of dogs on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. But when tragedy strikes the Sawtelle family, Edgar flees to the surrounding wilderness. He comes of age in the wild, fighting for his survival and that of the three yearling dogs who follow him.

    "Probably the most heart wrenching book ever"
    Overall

    I don't know how to begin to describe this book other than to say that I could not stop listening, yet had to turn it off several times so that I could call my sister to say Oh my God.
    This book is amazing, joyful, sorrowful, evil & good all roled into one. There is magic - real & ethereal. The imagery that he evokes in his reader is breath taking. I don't usually cry when I read - I sobbed many times while listening.

  • Say You're One of Them (Selections)

    Uwem Akpan's stunning stories humanize the perils of poverty and violence so piercingly that few listeners will feel they've ever encountered Africa so immediately. The eight-year-old narrator of "An Ex-Mas Feast" needs only enough money to buy books and pay fees in order to attend school. Even when his 12-year-old sister takes to the streets to raise these meager funds, his dream can't be granted.

    Roy says: "Beautiful Disturbing Prose"
    "I still give it 5 stars"
    Overall

    Even though there are only 3 of the 5 stories, I'll give it 5 stars.
    What hauntingly, distrubing and vivid stories. I stood there listening to the 2nd one unable to move. I do hope that I'll be able to get the othere 2 stories at some point.

    It's Christmastime in Skary, Indiana, but the holiday season has been hijacked by maverick director Lois Stepaphanopolis as she attempts to bring her horror-ific vision of A Christmas Carol to life. But the holly-decked path from page to stage is a thorny one, as Lois attempts to rally her skeptical cast, including new father Wolfe Boone, and then she learns that her reluctant marketing director, Alfred Tennison, is truly a Christmas Scrooge.

    Overall

    I was very disappointed when I started to listen and found that the narrator was a woman (yeah I should have noticed that). Having listened to the 1st three narrated by Michael Taylor, this one doesn't come close.
