    The story and the performance was soo good! I loved the events from a woman's view. I told my wife that if she like "The 6th Sense" and "A Beautiful Mind" then she would love this book as nothing is as it seems right from the very beginning.

    Set against the colorful tumult of events that gave rise to our fledgling nation, this novel of romance and adventure introduces Phillipe Charboneau. The illegitimate son of an English nobleman, Phillipe flees Europe and, as Philip Kent, joins the men who set our course for freedom. The Bastard is the first volume in the Kent Family Chronicles, a series of novels that details one family's journey in the early years of the American nation.

    What made the experience of listening to The Bastard the most enjoyable?

    In this 1st book you will learn about the Revolution War using the 1st Kent as a main charater. It is one thing to read history, but Jakes let you live it though the Kent family.

  • The Long March: The True History of Communist China's Founding Myth

    The Long March is Communist China's founding myth, the heroic tale that every Chinese child learns in school. Seventy years after the historical march took place, Sun Shuyun set out to retrace the Marchers' steps and unexpectedly discovered the true history behind the legend. The Long March is the stunning narrative of her extraordinary expedition.

    David says: "Interesting book - Inexcusable Audio Version"
    "Interesting"
    Overall

    My knowledge of this period is mostly of the depression and crime in the western world. I had no idea what the Long March was really about. The way it is done made it even more interesting and I felt my knowledge of how Chinese communism started has increase considerably. I wish Sun's other two books were on Audible too.
