  • The Iliad

    One of the most extraordinary achievements in world literary history. Too good to be relegated to the dustbin of high-school required reading, the first of Homer's epic poems tells of the counsel of Nestor, Achilles' slaying of Hector, and the defeat of the Trojans by the Greeks. (Translated by Samuel Butler.)

    James M says: "Illiad at three or four times the price worth it?"
    "An extraordinary performance"
    Overall

    Narrator Lescaut does an outstanding job; his voice is full of passion and expression; he can modulate it and change it to accord to the personality of the subject; a tour de force

    Early nineteenth-century America could just about be summed up by Henry David Thoreau's words when he said, "Eastward I go only by force, but westward I go free." It was an exuberant time for the diverse citizens of the United States, who included a range of folk, from mountain men and railroad builders to whalers and farmers, as they pushed forward into the open frontier. And all their hopes and fears are captured in Liberty for All?

    Jan says: "Liberty for All, a fast moving look"
    "Liberty for All, a fast moving look"
    Overall

    At a time when the train begun to run and technology begun to make inroads, this fast moving narrative is in most parts like a cliff hanger, especially the passionate display on slavery

    This collection of essays observes the perils of motherhood, wifehood, selfhood, and other assorted challenges. Since its publication in 1957, it has sold millions of copies and has been adapted into a Broadway play, a film, a TV series, and now an audiobook. Jean Kerr's parodies of the clichéd 1950s prescription for glamorous or maternal feminine behavior still resonate today as we enter the 21st century.

    Jan says: "Only if you like light subject matter in fiction"
    "Only if you like light subject matter in fiction"
    Overall

    Narrator talks too quickly, critizes her children, friends, journalists, hospitals, etc., etc. in a jovial narrative
