    Story

    Irene Nemirovsky was arrested soon after completing the second part of Suite Francaise. Ten days later, on August 17, 1942, she died of typhus in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Her husband, Michel, perished in a gas chamber on November 6. Their daughters, Denise and Elizabeth, survived, hidden in safe houses and convents, carrying a suitcase packed with clothes, photographs, and their mother's manuscript written in tiny letters to save paper.

    Robert says: "The best book I've read all year"
    "A Bit Boring"
    Overall

    I finally got through it but what could have been a great account turned out to be a bore.

  • The Last Days of Dogtown: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 16 mins)

    Story
    (68)

    Set on Cape Ann in the early 1800s, The Last Days of Dogtown is peopled by widows, orphans, spinsters, scoundrels, whores, free Africans, and "witches". Nearly a decade ago, Diamant found an account of an abandoned rural backwater near the Massachusetts coastline at the turn of the nineteenth century. That pamphlet inspired a stunning novel about a small group of eccentrics and misfits, struggling in a harsh, isolated landscape only fifty miles north of Boston, yet a world away.

    Alison says: "October Reading"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Great story, a look back at just how tough life was in the early 1800's.

  • Anna Karenina

    Story
    (266)

    This is the story of the unhappy family of Anna Karenina. The novel contains much concerning Tolstoy's spiritual crisis and his search for the meaning of life. But it is also chiefly about marriage, and the growth and death of love.

    AnnaH says: "Even Better Aloud"
    "The best"
    Overall

    This one has spoiled me. Other books seem flat and boring now. It is the best book I have ever read.

  • Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation

    Cokie returns with Founding Mothers, an intimate look at the passionate women whose tireless pursuits on behalf of their families and country proved just as crucial to the forging of a new nation as the rebellion that established it.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Interesting, but not engrossing"
    "Could have been good"
    Overall

    Don't waste your time. It could have been a great story, but Cokie read it so fast I missed half of it.
