    Story
    (270)

    At the end of the last century, Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was a booming coal-and-steel town filled with hardworking families striving for a piece of the nation's burgeoning industrial prosperity. In the mountains above Johnstown, an old earth dam had been hastily rebuilt to create a lake for an exclusive summer resort patronized by the tycoons of that same industrial prosperity, among them Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, and Andrew Mellon.

    Susan K Donley says: "A page-turner! HIstory that reads like a novel"
    "Great Narrator"
    Overall

    Having listened to quite a number of audible selections, including numerous McCullough books, I am quite sure that this narrator is the best of the best. I hope he produces more recordings because he adds so much by his natural and unadorned narrative style that any book he would read, would be worth hearing.

  • The History of Love

    Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

    Kathryn Lunetta says: "Beautiful story, beautifully written."
    "Don't want it to end"
    Overall

    This novel is very well conceived, written, and narrated in the audiobook. Krauss' characters are interesting and endearing, unique and yet familiar. The plot interweaves history and character into a beautiful fabric which I always look for in fiction. In my estimation she's more effective than her spouse--Jonathan Safran Foer--who got so much attention, maybe more than deserved.
    This is one I will reread.
