    Harper Lee’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south - and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as a digital audiobook. One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the 20th century by librarians across the country.

    Story

    This is an excellent novell. Sissy Spacek was absolutely wonderful. The story takes place in Alabama and Sissy has a beautiful Southern accent. She was 'Scout'. She was 'Jim'. She was 'Atticus' and every other character. I should have read the book years ago or the very least seen the movie. I did neither. This was a great story and Sissy Spacek did an excellent job.

    The daughter of rich but neglectful parents, Terisa Morgan lives alone in a New York City apartment, a young woman who has grown to doubt her own existence. Surrounded by the flat reassurance of mirrors, she leads an unfulfilled life - until the night a strange man named Geraden comes crashing through one of her mirrors, on a quest to find a champion to save his kingdom of Mordant from a pervasive evil that threatens the land.

    Story

    Stephen R. Donaldson is an interesting author. I generally have to read his books with a dictionary beside me. I suppose this story would be labelled a fantasy. It takes a while to build and the young characters are quite immature from the beginning and so indecisive. By the end of the Mordant's Need, however, you are anxiously ready for the second part.

    Good story.

    Story

    First, the reader, Bob Thomley is excellent. Second, Poe is strange. If one is not familiar with Poe other than some of his popular works like The Pit and the Pendulum, then you will find these stories weird, crazy and some are hilarious like Toby Dammit. Bob Thomley makes it all work.

    Story
    (207)

    James M. McPherson, professor emeritus of U.S. history at Princeton, is one of the foremost scholars of the Civil War. In this informative and meticulously researched masterpiece, he clarifies the differing ways of life and philosophy that led to this shattering conflict. Abraham Lincoln wondered whether "in a free government the minority have the right to break up the government". And Jefferson Davis felt "forced to take up arms" to guarantee states' rights.

    E. Pearson says: "A Rigorous Gift"
    "The Best Civil War Book"
    Overall

    This series should be read first before all others. It is an excellent perspective of the War from why it started to its final conclusion.

    Story

    Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward - wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders - his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

    D. Ramirez says: "I normally wouldn't, but..."
    "The Gathering Storm"
    Overall

    If not the best, then one of the best books in the series. It read very "Jordanesque" without the minutia of detail on what people were wearing as in earlier episodes.
