Cover ArtPersuasion [DVD].
by Root, Amanda.
I like the book Persuation very much. This adaption of it is the best I’ve ever seen. This seems to be not saying too much as there are so few Persuations out there, but this DVD is true to the characters, it brings them alive from the pages of the book. Ciarin Hinds makes a great Captain Wendover.   posted Jul 21, 2010 at 11:23AM

Cover ArtWriting Jane Austen : a novel

Cover ArtAppaloosa [audio cassette]
by Robert B. Parker
I also recommend Resolution and Brimstone, the other two novels in the trilogy. Even people who don’t normally read westerns would get something from these books. They are more character studies than shoot-em-ups. They author also wrote a book on the Earp brothers. It has a different voice and flavor, more like history.   posted Mar 25, 2010 at 7:32AM

Cover ArtAppaloosa [audio cassette]
by Robert B. Parker
I agree with Razor and Karen. I’m giving my take on the oral versions. Appaloosa is on tape and Resolution and Brimstone are on CD. The same man narrates (Titus Wendover) all 3. He does a great job capturing the voice of the author and especially of Everitt Hitch, the narrator of the books. Have fun!   posted Mar 25, 2010 at 7:26AM
