      An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

      "Listened to this one all the way through!"
      Would you listen to The New Yorker, January 23rd 2012 (Donald Hall, Ariel Levy, William Finnegan) again? Why?

      I might. I enjoyed the story by Hall about the changes in the Republican Party over the years and Nixon's fears that the party system would become Liberals vs Conservatives, which it mainly has today.
      The Levy story on Calista Gingrich was an eye opener for me. She is smarter than she looks but why won't the campaign let her speak? Or is it her not wanting Newt to be on his own? Trust issues???
      The growing Old piece was one of the weaker stories. It gradually picked up and was a nice essay.
      I rarely listen to the environmental stories, as they are boring for the most part. This story about the plowshare tortoise was amazing and very intriguing.
      Movie review on Corialanus was something new. Didn't even know this movie was out there but it sounds very interesting.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of The New Yorker, January 23rd 2012 (Donald Hall, Ariel Levy, William Finnegan)?

      When Calista Gingrich's mother said she wasn't sold on Newt as a husband. Duh!


      Which character – as performed by Dan Bernard and Christine Marshall – was your favorite?

      Sorry I don't know which was which. No favorite.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      The tortoise story in Madagascar, when sometimes doing nothing could be the best thing for a species survival.
