  • Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

    Anyone who has ever loved a book will relish this playful, yet deeply literate collection of essays celebrating the joy of reading. From building castles with books as a child, to the trauma of joining her library with her husband's, the author reveals, with much warmth and humor, the intimate details of her lifelong affair with books. For Anne Fadiman, books are not built for function, and certainly not for decoration. They are close personal friends who never fail to delight and amaze.

    Story

    This book has long been a favorite of mine, and I was delighted to find it here, not only in a clear and crisp audio format, but also narrated beautifully by a reader who not only clearly understands the wonderful humor of the book, but even proves herself more than up to the challenge of Ms. Fadiman's globe-trotting, century-hopping, sesquipedalian vocabulary. And yes, this was the book that first taught me "Sesquipedalian." Anne Fadiman's joyful tribute to bibliophiles everywhere is as delightful here as it was the first (and second, and third...) time that I read it.

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    James says: "Worthy "signature" premiere"
    "Stellar narration for a true literary classic"

    Elijah Wood gives a brilliant performance here, handling with ease all the numerous characters and accents, and conveying wonderfully both the humor and depth of the story.
