    Story

    On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the center of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself.

    Overall

    I remember reading this book as a kid and some how I did not see all the prejudice themes in the book. Now some 40 years later I see the good and evil in the book by I'm left wondering why Lewis could not have been less stereotyping in the characters. (Dark skin versus light skin) Lewis gets 2 stars for this book (not that he cares now)

    However, I would give the narrator 4 stars. He was ever engaging even when the story would make me mad for stereotyping.

  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    Story
    (1945)

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    Story

    The book was very good. It was a unique view of the story of Oz. The ending left me wanting more. (there are two more books) My only real complaint is that it seems to say the was only bad because everyone picked on her and she was an outsider. I think she liked being the odd one.

    I wish you could half star as I would give it 3.4 stars. (I round down not up hence 3 Stars)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Mark says: "Front Seat on History"
    "Book great - narrator ssshhhh!"
    Overall

    I like the book and listen to the end however it was a chore as the narrator was very dry!

    So 4 stars book - 2 stars narrator!
