In his New York Times best-selling books Extortion and Throw Them All Out, Schweizer detailed patterns of official corruption in Washington that led to congressional resignations and new ethics laws.

This book is full of facts that should absolutely terrify anyone who is considering voting for Ms Clinton. These two should probably be in prison...not the White House.

With this treasure trove of diaries and letters from the grand duchesses to their friends and family, we learn that they were intelligent, sensitive, and perceptive witnesses to the dark turmoil within their immediate family and the ominous approach of the Russian Revolution - the nightmare that would sweep their world away and them along with it. The Romanov Sisters will surprise people, even aficionados.

It was quite a break to have someone read this to me. Not sure if I would have actually finished this book on my own. The names and locations all in Russian would have been difficult and distracting.
The narration was wonderful.
Thanks Audible~

Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In 1855, three years after it was published, it was called "the most popular novel of our day." A thrilling and important piece of American literature!

Excellent Narration

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-14-16

I had tried to get thru the first several chapters of Uncle Tom's Cabin on my own and trying to get the tone and demeanor of the southern vernacular was difficult and distracting for a New England native.
This narrator was so convincing in her reading that I felt like I was there as an observer.
Thanks so much for Audible.
