    An enthralling blend of oral history and Gail Collins' keen research, this definitive look at 50 years of feminist progress shimmers with the amusing, down-to-earth liberal tone that is this New York Times columnist's trademark.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this book. It was an invaluable education for me, as a young woman, to see the struggles and triumphs of previous generations and get some perspective on my own.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    It shows many aspects of women's experiences across a broad spectrum of lifestyles, social class, and race. Wonderfully, it is not just about famous women, or women who were involved in the women's movement, but also offers snapshots of "ordinary" women living their lives in the midst of history. It is alternately funny, moving, and infuriating!

    Sarah Vowell exposes the glorious conundrums of American history and culture with wit, probity, and an irreverent sense of humor. With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other, a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage.

    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Sarah Vowell is a wonderful writer and storyteller. She has a charming and engaging voice that makes you want to befriend her. I really enjoyed hearing her read her own work—she has a great sense of humor, but she also clearly feels very deep emotion for the human beings behind these legendary stories. She makes you feel it, too.

  • The Clockwork Universe: Isaac Newton, The Royal Society, and the Birth of the Modern World

    The Clockwork Universe is the story of a band of men who lived in a world of dirt and disease but pictured a universe that ran like a perfect machine. A meld of history and science, this book is a group portrait of some of the greatest minds who ever lived as they wrestled with natures most sweeping mysteries. The answers they uncovered still hold the key to how we understand the world.

    Alison says: "The Royal Society comes alive."

    What made the experience of listening to The Clockwork Universe the most enjoyable?

    This is a good book that becomes great listening thanks to a very skillful reading. Alan Sklar is like your witty drinking buddy who tells you the story of meeting Isaac Newton over a pint at the local pub.
