Americans didn’t just go to the polls in 2016. They joined a movement that swept the unlikeliest of candidates, Donald Trump, into the Oval Office. Can he complete his agenda? Or will his opponents in the media, protester class, and political establishment block his efforts and choke off the movement he represents?
I can’t stop listening!!

Insightful and Enjoyable
Laura Ingraham provides valuable insight into the events leading up to the Trump Presidency. This was an easy and enjoyable listen, especially since the author narrated her work. I highly recommend this audio book for those interested in understanding the Populist Revolution and the results of the 2016 election.

Widely hailed as a milestone in American literature, Sinclair Lewis' Main Street vividly describes a country on the verge of massive change, with traditional values being threatened by progress. The novel's heroine, Carol Milford, is a highly educated, ambitious woman who plans to join a newly enlightened society. But after marrying a small-town doctor, she finds herself trapped in the role of a dutiful wife. Carol's desires for social change conflict with the security of her comfortable married life, as she struggles to understand the cost of conformity...and rebellion. As relevant today as it was upon its 1920 publication, Main Street is both a masterful piece of writing and a fascinating microcosm of America's social evolution.
Delightful reading of an excellent book

Sinclair Lewis Ahead of His Time
Having read Babbit, Dodsworth and It Can't Happen Here, I was not disappointed in listening to Main Street. The narrator was excellent. I was dubious as to a female voice.; however it was wholly appropriate and fitting .
Sinclair Lewis was ahead of his time in 1920 in addressing feminism and provincialism. This was a great "read" and leaves me excited to choose his next novel. And, I should reconsider my self-proclaimed label of conservative.
