A Tree grows in Brooklyn / [electronic resource]. by Smith, Betty.; Burton, Kate.;
Narrator: Kate Burton.From the moment she entered the world, Francie Nolan needed to be made of stern stuff, for growing up in the Williamsburg slums of Brooklyn, New York demanded fortitude, precocity, and strength of spirit. Often scorned by neighbors for her family's erratic and eccentric behavior -- such as her father Johnny's taste for alcohol and Aunt Sissy's habit of marrying serially without the formality of divorce -- no one, least of all Francie, could say that the Nolans' life lacked drama. By turns heartbreaking and uplifting, the Nolans' daily experiences are raw with honestly and tenderly threaded with family connectedness.Text Difficulty 3 - Text Difficulty 4UG/Upper grades (9th-12)8105.8Electronic reproduction.

Far from the Madding Crowd / [electronic resource]. by Hardy, Thomas.; Lee, John.;
Narrator: John Lee.In Thomas Hardy’s first major literary success, independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her bold presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, the soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy, and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each, in contrasting ways, unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and tragedy ensues, threatening the stability of the whole community. One of his first works set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex, Hardy’s novel of swift passion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships. -- provided by Amazon.com.Text Difficulty 3 - Text Difficulty 4740Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 388885 KB).

Across the River and Into the Trees / [electronic resource]. by Hemingway, Ernest.; Gaines, Boyd.;
Narrator: Boyd Gaines.A poignant tale of a revitalizing love that is found too late -- the fleeting connection between an Italian countess and an injured American colonel inspires light and hope, while only darkness lies ahead. In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the world-weary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War.Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 197776 KB).

The great Gatsby / [electronic resource]. by Fitzgerald, F. Scott.; Heald, Anthony.;
Narrator: Anthony Heald.Jay Gatsby is still in love with Daisy, whom he met during the war when he was penniless. Having made himself wealthy through illegal means, he now lives in a mansion across the bay from the home of Daisy Buchanan, who has since married for money. Holding on to his illusion of Daisy as perfect, he seeks to impress her with his wealth, and uses his new neighbor, Nick Carraway (our narrator), to reach her. Daisy's wealthy but boring husband is cheating on her. When his mistress is killed in an accident caused by Daisy, Gatsby covers for her and takes the blame. The result is a murder and an ending that reveals the failure of money to buy love or happiness. Fitzgerald's elegantly simple work captures the spirit of the Jazz Age and embodies America's obsessions with wealth, power, and the promise of new beginnings.Text Difficulty 3 - Text Difficulty 4760Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 137614 KB).

Uncle Tom's cabin / [electronic resource]. by Stowe, Harriet Beecher.; Allen, Richard.;
Narrator: Richard Allen.Uncle Tom's Cabin opens with a Kentucky farmer named Arthur Shelby facing the loss of his farm because of debts. Even though he and his wife, Emily Shelby, believe that they have a benevolent relationship with their slaves, Shelby decides to raise the needed funds by selling two of them-Uncle Tom, a middle-aged man with a wife and children, and Harry, the son of Emily Shelby's maid Eliza-to a slave trader. Emily Shelby hates the idea of doing this because she had promised her maid that her child would never be sold; Emily's son, George Shelby, hates to see Tom go because he sees the old man as his friend and mentor. When Uncle Tom's Cabin was published in 1852, it became an international blockbuster, selling more than 300,000 copies in the United States alone in its first year. Progressive for her time, Harriet Beecher Stowe was one of the earliest writers to offer a shockingly realistic depiction of slavery. Her stirring indictment and portrait of human dignity in the most inhumane circumstances enlightened hundreds of thousands of people by revealing the human costs of slavery, which had until then been cloaked and justified by the racist misperceptions of the time.Text Difficulty 6 - Text Difficulty 91050Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 566629 KB).

1984 [electronic resource]. by Orwell, George.; Prebble, Simon.;
Narrator: Simon Prebble.Blackstone Audio presents a new recording of this immensely popular book. George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police, a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, the hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him. He knows even as he continues to pursue his forbidden love affair that eventually he will come to destruction. The year 1984 has come and gone, yet George Orwell's nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is still the great modern classic of negative Utopia. It is a prophetic and haunting tale that exposes the worst crimes imaginable: the destruction of freedom and truth.Text Difficulty 9 - Text Difficulty 12Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 320702 KB).
