    Story
    (23)

    On the 12th of April 1865, the Army of Northern Virginia marched to the field in front of Appomattox Court-House, stacked their arms, folded their colors, and walked off empty handed to find their distant, blighted homes. These are detailed and moving first-hand accounts from a number of prominent witnesses to Robert E. Lee's surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox.

    Mark says: "Appomattox as told by the participants"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Surrender at Appomattox the most enjoyable?

    I like to hear stories from multiple viewpoints. Armies and battles are very complex; no one has the whole truth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The presentation of different vantage points.


    Did Andrew Mulcare do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

  • A Confederacy of Dunces

    Story
    (838)

    The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter". His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures.

    Jon says: "Well Done"
    "Excellent story and voice characterizations!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Confederacy of Dunces to be better than the print version?

    Whitener does an excellent job of bringing very unique characters to life. Thoroughly enjoyed this version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jones. His attitude and his responses to his situation, as well his unique use of language were the best part of the story.
