    Charlie hopes that the new term at Bloor's Academy will hold no nasty surprises. But then Henry Yewbeam appears, twisted through time from the icy winter of 1916.

    Overall

    I love this series, it's has a very comfortable style and the narrator is excellent. Its almost like watching a movie withe the various voices he has at his be beckoning call. I highly reccomend this book for adults and children.

  • American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By Joseph J. Ellis
    • Narrated By Susan O’Malley

    For a man who insisted that life on the public stage was not what he had in mind, Thomas Jefferson certainly spent a great deal of time in the spotlight, even in his retirement. In American Sphinx, Ellis sifts the facts from the legend to find the heart of the man who, at the grass roots, is no longer liberal or conservative, agrarian or industrialist, pro- or anti-slavery, privileged or populist.

    Overall

    The contents of this book are quite thrilling, the reading by Mrs. O'Malley leaves a lot to be desired. Ellis does an excellent job in some fascinating tidbits of Jefferson’s life. The preface is also excellent reading in that Ellis goes into the reason for his book and at what angle his is coming from. I have read other books from Ellis and I consider him a Top historian, but the reading is so dry and boring if it wasn’t for the gems hidden inside I would actually not listen at all.
    Ellis goes into the deeper side of Jefferson and try’s through educated guesses (which are very entertaining as well as interesting) and comes to some very good conclusions. I would suggest this book to anyone, but be forewarned of the dry reading.
