    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    Story

    The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults and to me she has bridged the gap and proven she is an author through and through. This book explores just about every social issue in the world today and she does an excellent job of making the reader see all view points from each character. The language was very over done and one reason for three stars. I do not need to hear the "f" word a million times to get the point. You also have to stick with the building of each character in very minute detail as she skillfully intertwines each one. In the end you will be surprised at how each one and every decision affected the other. Worth the time to listen to just be prepared for some spots that seem mundane, there is a purpose for them.

    A terrible darkness has fallen upon Jacob Weisz’s beloved Germany. The Nazi regime, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, has surged to power and now hold Germany by the throat. All non-Aryans - especially Jews like Jacob and his family - are treated like dogs. When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare - trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp.

    Joel says: "A heart warming read."
    "Riveting from the first sentence!"

    Story

    Christopher Lane's narration of this book is nothing short of astounding.I was transported to that awful time in our world's history when Hitler tried to destroy the Jewish race. This should be required reading for everyone! History forgotten is History repeated.

  • Roots: The Saga of an American Family

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A masterpiece like none other, Brooks’ powerful performance of Haley’s words has been known to leave listeners in tears. It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

    Avery Brooks is a superb narrator. That Roots is a great book is just the icing on the cake.

  • True Grit

    Mattie Ross, a 14-year-old girl from Dardanelle, Arkansas, sets out to avenge her Daddy who was shot to death by a no-good outlaw. Mattie convinces one-eyed "Rooster" Cogburn, the meanest U.S. marshal in the land, to ride along with her. In True Grit, we have a true American classic, as young Mattie, as vital as she is innocent, outdickers and outmaneuvers the hard-bitten men of the trail in a legend that will last through the ages.

    Story

    I like westerns so I liked the story already. Narration was good the only drawback was she stopped to take a breath in odd places. She did a great job changing voices and overall held my attention.
