    "Narrated litrature at its best"

    I first listened to this book 10 years ago and was excited to see audibles now caries it. ARSiddons is an amazing author in the same style as Pat Conroy and this is one of her best works. Not only is the Classic Southern Gothic writing style incredible, But it is also read by the only person who does work like this Justice, Mrs.Sally Darling makes the characters and the this wonderfully complex story come to life with her amazing narration.

    "Anne River Siddons' southern gothic masterpeice"
    What other book might you compare Fox's Earth to and why?

    Barbara Kingslover's "The Poisenwood Bible". Both seem to be the most important book of their career.

    "Wonderful Read (listen)"

    I have always enjoyed Anne River Siddons books, Fox's Earth did not disappoint. I first thought I would not like the narration however I was wrong, Sally Darling did a terrific job building the drama and the Southern drawl in her redition of this novel. Thank you Audible and Thank you Anne River Siddons.

    "Dark but enjoyable"

    The story will make you cringe for the very evil of the main character. Still, a great novel well written and beautifully narrated

    "Intriguing!"
    Where does Fox's Earth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is long, but definitely keeps your attention. The narration was good and kept you involved. I enjoyed listening!

    "One of my favorite authors"

    Ruth Yancy Fox represents those people in one's life who try to steer your path in the direction that they think is best. Of course, her actions, for the most part, are larger than life, but certainly ring true. I wish more of Ms. Siddons books had been recorded unabridged. Her stories set in the South are perfect. Don't understand why this has not been corrected.

    "Dreary, really dreary"

    Nasty character just gets nastier, despite your hopes things will improve...a little conclusion, but just dreary...lots of time to invest in drear.
