  • A Tale of Two Cities

    "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"; "It is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known"; so the novel begins and ends with some of Dicken's best-known words, and between the two is every Briton's view of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.

    K. Hicks says: "A Rediscovery of an Old Friend"
    "Fantastic story. Excellent performance."

    No matter how many times I listen to this, I love it.
    I imagine Dickens himself must have sounded just like Martin Jarvis.

    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.

    Sissy Spacek IS Scout Finch! Her voice perfectly portrays every character in this wonderful story.
    My children and I have enjoyed this audiobook several times. I listen to it about once a year. To me, it's the perfect audiobook.

    This book should not have been made into an audiobook. It sounds like a manual or a textbook. I was hoping to hear something inspirational, uplifting, or motivating, but was disappointed.

    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.

    Story

    If you find yourself frustrated with the minor characters, remember - that was Mark Twain's intent. The only characters I loved were Jim and Huckleberry, and an occasional acquaintance along this epic journey. And that's the point of the thing.
    Elijah Wood did a fine job.

    In this best-selling novel, Patrick D. Smith tells the story of three generations of the MacIveys, a Florida family who battle the hardships of the frontier to rise from a dirt-poor Cracker life to the wealth and standing of real estate tycoons. The story opens in 1858, when Tobias MacIvey arrives in the Florida wilderness to start a new life, and ends in 1968 with Solomon MacIvey, who realizes that the land has been exploited far beyond human need.

    Betty says: "GREAT BOOK!"
    "One of my favorites"
    Overall

    I have listened to this story many times. It gets better every time. If you live in South Florida, this story will connect you with the land in a special way.

    Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age - and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. But years later, she learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors.

    Whenever I'm tempted to deal harshly with my students, or become frustrated with my co-workers, I listen to this classic book again. The simple strategies are masterfully presented. They work beautifully.

    Andrew MacMillan's voice is pleasant and authoritative.

    Meet Loco, a dog with a passion for firecrackers. And Pedro, an altar boy forced to learn a hard lesson from two of the toughest, oldest men ever to serve the Lord. Jordan and Todd are two boys from California who don't know what they're in for when they push their Texas cousins a little too far. Loosely based on the author's own childhood in south Texas, this story collection is a moving whirlwind of humor and insight -brash, tender, and full of the unexpected.

    Kathleen says: "A decent performance"

    Story

    Crazy Loco is one of the novels in the Hampton Brown "Edge A" reading curriculum. The book is appropriate for my hispanic lower-functioning teenaged readers. While it is not gripping literature, it is amusing and it did teach me more about my students' cultural backgrounds.
    Joe Rodriguez does a fine job with the performance.
