    Story
    (141)

    Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft.

    Catherine says: "Hemingway without being TOO Hemingway"
    "A very good follow up to The Paris Wife"

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

    I loved the book, but I have a good Hemingway background. So many of my friends don't read the classics.


    What about James Naughton???s performance did you like?

    He did an excellent job narrating.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did find myself amazed and amused at F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    Story
    (302)

    The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history, the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild 12-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.

    Elizabeth says: "Fascinating!"
    "Really enjoyed this book"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Manhunt the most enjoyable?

    The history on which the story is based, of course, and the author did an excellent job of telling the story. Makes me want to read more about this part of history.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again, the subject matter.


    Which character ??? as performed by Richard Thomas ??? was your favorite?

    John Wilkes Booth was the most interesting character. I don't feel that Richard Thomas was the best narrator for this story, but nevertheless, the story did move well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I particularly enjoyed the prologue where the author talks about his research and the places of interest that are still in existence. I have visited the Ford Theater and the home across the street where Lincoln died, but had no idea about Booth's escape route or what ensued in the days following the assignation.
