  • Homer & Langley

    From Ragtime and Billy Bathgate to The Book of Daniel, World's Fair, and The March, the novels of E. L. Doctorow comprise one of the most substantive achievements of modern American fiction. Now, with Homer & Langley, this master novelist has once again created an unforgettable work. Homer and Langley Collyer are brothers - the one blind and deeply intuitive, the other damaged into madness, or perhaps greatness, by mustard gas in the Great War.

    Story

    I think what made this novel perfect for me was the narrator! He did a fantastic job of differentiating between the characters and pausing at just the right places. I really enjoyed the story as well. After I finished the book, I went online to read about the real Collyer Brothers. Fascinating!

  • The Picture of Dorian Gray

    Oscar Wilde’s classic story of a young man who sells his soul in exchange for eternal beauty and youth continues to thrill generations of readers. Written by a man who was every bit as flamboyant and unconventional as its hero, The Picture of Dorian Gray is as haunting today as when it first shocked the British public in 1891. Dorian Gray, young, intelligent, sophisticated, gazes on his freshly painted portrait.

    Story

    I have read this novel, but it has been awhile so I thought I would "read" it again. It was rough. I don't know if it was the story or the reader. I was just simply bored.

    Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down.

    Story

    This novel is long and has a lot of characters so it is hard to listen without the novel in front of you. I use it for high school seniors. It is still better than me reading it to them or vice versa.

  • Pygmalion

    Pygmalion remains one of the most popular stories, but mainly in the medium of the musical; the evergreen My Fair Lady. But much of the charm and wit comes from the words and timing in Shaw's original play. Here are the characters of Professor Higgins, his friend Colonel Pickering, and their charge, Eliza Doolittle.

    Story

    I used this version for my high school senior English classroom. It was much better than having the students read it aloud, but it was missing parts from the play itself (even though it says it is unabridged). I don't know if that is an editor's issue with the version we use in class or how Shaw printed it. It was easy to figure out though.

    Story
    (105)

    Frank Money is an angry, self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he's hated all his life. This is a deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood - and his home.

    Melinda says: "not a novel, but a collection of short stories"

    Story

    I enjoyed this novel for the simple fact that is was written by Toni Morrison and read by Toni Morrison. I had to speed up the narrator though because she is a slow reader. I really enjoy her novels and this one did not disappoint. It isn't my favorite Morrison book, but it was a good story!
