    Anthony Powell's universally acclaimed epic encompasses a four-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as "brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times," A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art.

    Would you try another book from Anthony Powell and/or Simon Vance?

    I BOUGHT THIS SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE IT WAS SIMON VANCE. I KEPT LISTENING, WAITING FOR THE STORY TO STOP MEANDERING AND FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN! NOTHING. NO PLOT, WON'T BUY THE OTHER MOVEMENTS FOR FEAR THERE WILL JUST BE MORE MEANDERING THROUGH THESE QUITE DULL LIVES.

  • The Chaperone

    >The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922, and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a 15-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip.

    Amanda says: "Perfection."

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story, and the narration. Love the evolution of the main character, issues that are once again, unfortunately, being explored in our society.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she loves and trusts most - don’t want that to happen.

    CDN says: "A Good Listen (except the music)"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Good story plot if a bit contrived. The narration is fine, but I just can't listen anymore. Just when the story gets moving, along comes another SONG. Monotone, off-key. If only each song was its own chapter to make fast-forwarding past it easier, I might have stayed with the audible version of this book. I'm with the other reviewers: can't believe this made it past an editor, unless maybe it's an editor's kid singing?
