    Unlike the other arts, American literature has been a powerful, influential, and leading aspect of American culture. By turns sedate and mercurial and possessing a moral mind set of various social values, the American short story reveals in its pages the psyche of a growing, sprawling nation whose sense of destiny has always been larger than life. Here are seven masterpieces that will make you smile, make you frown, and leave you pondering the mystery that surrounds the soul of a great nation.

    This should not be titled as "Classic". There was not one story that I found interesting...

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The dialoge in this book is well written but doesn't go anywhere. It reminds me of one of those books with a man with rippling muscles and an damsel swooning over him. I have gone a good 15hrs into the book waiting for some kind of action/ intruege to begin. Instead it is a high school love affair where people fall in love in three weeks.... I can honestly say I had more sense when I was a freshman in high school that Dianna. Mathew this and mathew that it. Cant she call him matt once in a while? Moving on if you are a woman that is into romace you will probably find it enjoyable. If you are a red blooded man you will want to gouge out your ears. Good Luck!
