    Story
    (170)

    For a thousand years her existence has been denied. She is the legend that will not die - Pope Joan, the ninth-century woman who disguised herself as a man and rose to become the only female ever to sit on the throne of St. Peter. Now in this riveting novel, Donna Woolfolk Cross paints a sweeping portrait of an unforgettable heroine who struggles against restrictions her soul cannot accept.

    Would you try another book from Donna Woolfolk Cross and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    yes


    Has Pope Joan turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    This was an epic tale made more tantalizing by historians who agree that Pope Joan did indeed exist. Though it was a very lengthy book, (19 hrs) it was the perfect travel companion on a long trip, with tales of love, war, triumph and tragedy.

  • Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House

    Story
    (36)

    Valerie Wilson, the object of the "Plame" CIA leak case that resulted in the conviction of the vice-president's chief of staff, Scooter Libby, has spoken publicly only twice since she was outed in July 2003. Now she tells not only the real story behind the leak, but describes her life at the CIA and what happened when her cover was blown.

    Leighboy says: "Interesting but for the bleeps"
    "Don't buy it!"
    Overall

    I have listened to this book for one hour in bits, and will not be able to finish it. I wish I had read the reviews first before I bought it. The only part of the book that is not bleeped out is about her postpartum depression.
    Things as simple as the name of a restaurant are bleeped out (and the bleeps are long annoying buzzers).
    You would need the patience of Job to get through it!
