What made the experience of listening to Mercer's Manor the most enjoyable?
I liked all the little details of life on the prairies -- it gave me the sense I was reading about real people, not just stock characters in a horse opera.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Mercer's Manor?
Mercer's memories of life in Andersonville -- pretty lousy place.
What does John Burlinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I liked the way he read the various characters -- they all sounded really genuine.
If you could take any character from Mercer's Manor out to dinner, who would it be and why?
