    Yes, I love the story and it was done well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eliza, as a mother I had such deep feelings for her plight.

    I often skim over parts when reading, but catch all of the story when listening.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    An American Atrocity.

    Occasionally, when the reader's voice was low, I had a little trouble hearing, and had to turn the volume up, but overall, it was very good.

    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....

    Where does Gone with the Wind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably 3rd.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scarlet's mother. She had good values and had attempted to teach them to her daughter.


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

    I was often angry at Scarlet for her selfishness and self-centeredness. Especially when her son meant nothing to her.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abraham Lincoln. He was such a great man with so much integrity.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for that, but I couldn't wait to get to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    It was such a contrast of good versus evil, in a real setting. Even though I knew Lincoln would be killed, the way it was written in story form and with so many details, I kept hoping history could have changed. It had me crying. I enjoyed learned so much of history that isn't known.

    Mattie Ross, a 14-year-old girl from Dardanelle, Arkansas, sets out to avenge her Daddy who was shot to death by a no-good outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed "Rooster" Cogburn, the meanest U.S. marshal in the land, to ride along with her. In True Grit, we have a true American classic, as young Mattie, as vital as she is innocent, outdickers and outmaneuvers the hard-bitten men of the trail in a legend that will last through the ages.

    Tommygaus says: "So worth it!"

    Where does True Grit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably 3rd, this includes books on my I-Pod, also.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of True Grit?

    The ending, because the book is so different from the John Wayne movie at the end. I haven't seen the new version.


    Which character – as performed by Donna Tartt – was your favorite?

    Precious little Mattie!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Courage of a Young Woman.


    Any additional comments?

    The end is much more violent than the John Wayne movie, so was hard for me to listen to, partly because growing up on a ranch where we have rattlesnakes, I have such a fear of them. The book was well done, though.
