    This second volume in William Manchester's three-volume biography of Winston Churchill challenges the assumption that Churchill's finest hour was as a wartime leader. During the years 1932-1940, he was tested as few men are. Pursued by creditors (at one point he had to put up his home for sale), he remained solvent only by writing an extraordinary number of books and magazine articles.

    Andrew says: "Worth it"
    "good book; lackluster narrator"
    Overall

    I didn't enjoy Brown as much as Davidson as a narrator. He seemed to try to mimio Churchill's speaking rhythm too much.

    Against the sumptuous backdrop of Charleston, South Carolina, South of Broad gathers a unique cast of sinners and saints. Leopold Bloom King, our narrator, is the son of an amiable, loving father who teaches science at the local high school. His mother, an ex-nun, is the high school principal and a well-known Joyce scholar. After Leo's older brother commits suicide at the age of 13, the family struggles with the shattering effects of his death, and Leo, lonely and isolated, searches for something to sustain him

    Pamela says: "Authors Need to Review Pronunciations"
    "Where have South Carolina's manners gone?"
    Overall

    The few pages devoted to descriptions of Charleston are very nice. The rest is told with outhouse language; profanity, obscenity and unnecessary gutter prose. The message, once said is maudlin and repetitive. I expected much better.
