    Almost 10 times as many men died in the Civil War prison camps of the North and South as were killed at the Battle of Gettysburg. One such camp was Andersonville, where Union soldiers like Brigade Quartermaster John L. Ransom of the Ninth Michigan Cavalry, were subjected to hunger, disease, cruelty, and despair. Captured in November 1863, Ransom kept his spirits and courage up enough to survive and record this compelling true account of his experiences.

    Overall

    While I had heard the name and knew it to be a terrible place this book gave the horrid details. Born and raised in the old south I wish it were not true, but it is. The amazing thing is that the author really lived through it all. An detailed account of a man who went through Andersonville and in the end was saved by friends who cared. This is a book we should all read or listen to as a part of our history. This book also brought out the importance of keeping a personal journal so that history will not be lost.

    From coast to coast and around the world, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels continue to make best-selling history each summer. In the 13th book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious, hottest, chase yet.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Overall

    I enjoyed the book, and am now listening to the sequel. The "but" relates to the predictability of some of the situations that develop. You say to yourself no, don't go there but sure enough they do. I still recommend the book. You find yourself wondering how this situation will eventually work it's way out and there are some surprises so go for it!
