  • Elmer Gantry

    A greedy, philandering Baptist minister, Elmer Gantry turns to evangelism and becomes the leader of a large Methodist congregation. Often exposed as a fraud, he is never fully discredited. Elmer Gantry is considered a landmark American novel and one of the most penetrating studies of hypocrisy in modern literature. It portrays the evangelistic activity that was common in 1920s America as well as attitudes toward it.

    "One of the greats"
    Overall

    Sinclair Lewis' fantastic drama of an religious anti-hero is super relevant today. He's such a despicable and appealing character, brought to life by the fabulous narration. I loved every minute of it.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommended this to people before I finished reading it. The narration was fantastic and the writing so vivid and accurate. Anyone who has spent any time on the North Shore will identify the characters drawn in the book. Hildy...oh to see Meryl Streep play her.

  • Under the Dome: A Novel

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Any additional comments?

    I just finished 11-22-63 and wasn't expecting the old Steve King. Horrible evil characters with poison running through their veins instead of blood. Big Jim is beyond awful. It took me a while to get used to the narrator. Craig Wasson, who did 11-22-63, is so terrific. It was hard to hear Raul's Maine accent. And his French accent! But I stuck with it and got addicted to the terror. A good yarn.

    The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold is a semi-autobiographical story, which tells of the mental breakdown of an ageing writer. Gilbert Pinfold takes a cruise to try to rebuild his shattered life, but what should his life be, and is he important to the world, anyway?

    Erez says: "What a gem"
    "Laughed out loud. A lot."
    Overall

    People must have thought I was a crazy person - while I listened to this sharp, strange novel about a lazy egomanic I was laughing out loud. On the subway. On the street. In stores. The narrator and the novel are hilarious!
