    Eric Foner gives us the definitive history of Abraham Lincoln and the end of slavery in America. Foner's Lincoln emerges as a leader, one whose greatness lies in his capacity for moral and political growth through real engagement with allies and critics alike. This powerful work will transform our understanding of the nation's greatest president and the issue that mattered most.

    D. Littman says: "great book about slavery and lincoln"

    Would you listen to The Fiery Trial again? Why?

    No.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great story


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader mispronounced many words. He did not seem like a learned man. His Abraham Lincoln voice was awful.

    When radical New York lawyer Joel Litvinoff is felled by a stroke, his wife, Audrey, uncovers a secret that forces her to reexamine everything she thought she knew about their 40-year marriage. Joel's children will soon have to come to terms with this discovery themselves, but for the meantime, they are struggling with their own dilemmas and doubts.

    Anastasia Burke says: "Great writing, not-so-great narration"
    "Good book, poor reading."

    If you could sum up The Believers in three words, what would they be?

    Leftist Sixties Kunstler


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters. Also I have an interest in politics and Judaism in the 1960s.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrea Martin?

    I love Andrea Martin as a performer, but she had an unsteady command of various accents (British, Brooklyn, Jewish, Manhattan). The family's voices were heavily Jewish and Upper West Side, but the family lived downtown. The voices were inconsistent.


    If you could take any character from The Believers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The older sister seems like a nice person who has lived with many impossible people.


    Any additional comments?

    I tried to imagine the words on the page behind the voice.
