    Before Green Gables is the story of Anne Shirley's life before her arrival at Green Gables - a heartwarming tale of a precocious child. Her lively imagination and relentless spirit help her to overcome difficult circumstances and exemplify a young girl's ability to love, learn, and above all, dream.

    Overall

    I found this book to be very charming. The author did an excellent job of continuing in the tone of L Montgomery. It was so much fun to meet Anne before she came to Green Gables and to get to know her and understand where she was coming from. The narrator did an incredible job. I enjoyed it so much, I bought the hard cover to add to my collection, and recommended it to all my Anne friends.

    Rhett Butler's People is the long-awaited novel that parallels the great American novel Gone with the Wind. Twelve years in the making, Rhett Butler's People marks a major and historic cultural event for millions of Gone with the Wind readers, complementing and adding new dimensions to its timeless story.

    Overall

    I bought this one two years ago and loved it. In an attempt to be frugal, I'm trying to re-listen to the books in my library. Some were good the first time, but a chore the second time through. Rhett Butler's People was so entertaining, it was like listening to it for the first time. Great, great book, even if your not familiar with Gone With The Wind.

  • The Poisonwood Bible

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book, the way it was written and the story. The story itself is a sad one, but captivating all the same. And the manner in which its told, each character taking turns sharing the events from their perspective, was interesting. I also enjoyed the narration. She did a great job, and her southern accent lent itself to the characters perfectly.

    The Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana in 1876 has become known as the quintessential clash of cultures between the Lakota Sioux and whites. The men who led the battle, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, and Colonel George A. Custer, have become the stuff of legends.

    Bonny says: "Little Big Horn viewed from the other side"
    "disappointing"
    Overall

    This book had an interesting account of events as hoped for. That part was interesting. However, the author seems to carry a huge chip on his shoulder decades after the events. Over all the educational value was lost, buried in the racial venting of the author.
