    Would you listen to Speaks the Nightbird again? Why?

    yes, as there are so many chacters any of whom would do the dirty deeds, that maybe skipped by me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matthew of coarse because of his persistence.


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

    No, but he is now my favorite narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, only I don't sit only to knit while listening. I drive,pull weeds, clean chicken yard, walk the dog, and with my little speaker, take a bath, cook, and wash dishes.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I have said it all.

    It's summer in Abbotsville, and Miss Julia has visions of enjoying a life of leisure. But before she can even sip some iced tea on her front porch, a letter from her long-lost cousin Elsie informs her that Elsie's granddaughter is on a bus headed to Abbotsville that very day. Reminding Miss Julia of an old family debt, Elsie proclaims that she is sending Trixie to Miss Julia's to learn to become a lady. The nerve of some people! When the rude and unkempt Trixie arrives, even Sam and Lloyd agree that Miss Julia faces quite a challenge.

    Karen says: "Miss Julia almost meets her match!"
    "the best yet"

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Louis says: "Loved it and learned alot."

    Did Fall of Giants inspire you to do anything?

    yes, not finish it.
