    This is an exuberant group portrait of four extraordinary writers, Zelda Fitzgerald, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dorothy Parker, and Edna Ferber, whose loves, lives, and literary endeavors captured the spirit of the 1920s.

    Diana says: "Fascinating lives!"

    I love books like this. Getting behind the scenes of a crazy time. The tone of the book pulled me in right away. Highly Recommend.

  • Atlas Shrugged , Volume 1

    Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus, which launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who have never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    Valerie says: "An excellent listen, despite its length."
    "Spoiled little rich girl"
    Overall

    While many praise this book. I see it only as the whining of a little rich girl who lost her fortune and priviledge after the Russian Revolution. Her philosophy is faulty. Her writing is abhorrent. I can't see any value in a book that sells the value of "selfishness."

    Witty, indulged, capricious, Zelda Sayre's escapades were the scandal of her hometown of Montgomery, Alabama. When she married F. Scott Fitzgerald they were played on a larger stage - New York, Paris, the Riviera. The epitome of the Jazz Age, she and Scott rode the crest of the era to its collapse, and their own.

    James says: "Not Zelda; Scott"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    This is the most amazing book. If you really want an inside feel to health, properity, mental illness and genius, listen to this book!
