    Abigail was the last keeper of the house, the last to know the Howland family's secrets. Now, in the name of all her brothers and sisters, she must take her bitter revenge on the small-minded Southern town that shamed them, persecuted them, but could never destroy them.

    It started slow but I truly enjoyed this book. The narrator is also very good. Highly recommended.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad this book was abridged. There are some good points made but I got fed up with all the religious comments. The author could have easily left those out since it did not add to his arguments.

  • The Sun Also Rises

    The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway's masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful style. A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the story introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. Follow the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of the 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates.

    Story

    For more than half a century, the United States has been pursuing a grand imperial strategy with the aim of staking out the globe. Our leaders have shown themselves willing, as in the Cuban missile crisis, to follow the dream of dominance no matter how high the risks. Now the Bush administration is intensifying this process, driving us toward the final frontiers of imperial control, toward a choice between the prerogatives of power and a livable Earth.

    Jazz Listener says: "Great book, lousy reader"
    "A must read"
    Overall

    I probably would not have been writing this review if there had been no intervention by CIA with the democratically elected government of Mossadegh in Iran in the 1950's. I immigrated here from Iran. Imagine, a democratic Iran...overthrown by help of CIA. When you read this book, you learn of all the other interventions by US across the globe. I really wish that people who attack this book are right...but history is behind Mr. Chomsky.
