What made the experience of listening to The Tilted World the most enjoyable?
The thing I enjoyed most about this book is that it makes you actually care about and even worry about the characters in the story. With this story the reader gets to gain some historical insight about the south in the year 1927.
Who was your favorite character and why?
All of them were memorable, but Ted Ingersoll was my kind of guy.
What about Brian D'Arcy James’s performance did you like?
Great narration and articulation, various voices.
Any additional comments?
If you want a good story, memorable characters, and a sense of history during prohibition and what can happen in a natural disaster, this is for you. I think this book would make a great movie. I'd love to see this story on the big screen.

Wrapped up in the history of the downpours of 1926 and 1927 and eventual flood of the great Mississippi River, this historical fiction tale is one of the BEST books I've come across in a long, long time. As a young girl, Dixie Clay comes of age and falls in love with Jessie, a handsome man who visits their farm every year and buys her animal hides. Little did she know, he was a bootlegger. And as time goes on, she learns more about Jessie . . . Rich in detail of rural Mississippi, moonshiners, revenuers, crooked lawmen, and just plain folk caught up in the upheaval of the times, The Tilted World is a stunning novel of pain, sadness, despair, and ultimately of hope, determination and victory.
