  • The Grapes of Wrath

    At once naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics. Although it follows the movement of thousands of men and women and the transformation of an entire nation during the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s, The Grapes of Wrath is also the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, who are forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

    Story

    Objectionable language and the ending is so repulsive I was mortified. It's just plain disgusting and I wish I had never heard it.

    Too much profanity and a very anti-Christian attitude by the writer.

  • Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde

    With dramatic flair, Jeff Guinn delivers the definitive portrait of Bonnie and Clyde. These media-savvy outlaws appealed to America's Depression-era hunger for swashbuckling characters. Glowing radio and newspaper reports transformed these "public enemies" into celebrities - much like the cinema gangsters of the time.

    Story

    This is a good book, with many historical facts, yet in no way boring. No profanity, or not much, if any.

    Of the books I have listened to, this is my number two favorite.

    My grandmother was in the same age group as Bonnie and Clyde and used to tell me about them. They drove near her home at one time, which scared her family because they were killers after all. Yet, she had a kindness in her heart toward them also. She didn't approve of the way they were killed. As most of the people her age, she had a strong dislike for the bankers, so stealing from the banks wasn't that big of an offense. She considered the bankers to be thieves. That said, you can understand my curiosity about this group.

  • Lucille: The Life of Lucille Ball

    In 20 years of show business, Lucille Ball had only modest and sporadic success. Her TV program, I Love Lucy, was her last chance to fulfill the ambition that had sustained her through the frustrations of her professional life and the anguish of a failing marriage. The role of Lucy Ricardo revealed her true gifts, but it changed her life immeasurably. This definitive portrait of Lucille Ball is based on the recollections of fellow performers, her closest friends and family, and Lucille herself.

    Story

    The book is very well researched out. Dates, places and people are all organized in chronological order and presented in a halfway interesting manner. It impressed me the detail the author had gone to. Was kind of surprised at some of the language used in it, and some of the other things she did that are quite against my own personal religious beliefs. Still, if you want to know about the life of Lucille Ball Arnaz, this isn't a bad book to listen to.

    Since I grew up watching her shows, I was curious.

    For me, it seems difficult to find "decent" books to listen to. My first and favorite so far is "Gone with the Wind".

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell's great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold. Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire....

    Sue Monk Kidd's ravishing debut novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.

    Story

    Today's media, be it television, music or books are released with the express intention of corrupting our morals and turning the population away from Christianity. This is one. Just too sick to continue listening to. Don't need it. Don't want it. It's awful.
