Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Edward Herrmann

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

American Dreams is the second book in a planned trilogy that examines life in America from the mid-nineteenth century through modern times. The Crown family of Chicago, German immigrants who built a brewing empire, is the focus for this fascinating look at our history. Edward Herrmann's effortless and expressive delivery adds much life and dimension to the assorted cast of characters. Perhaps Herrmann's greatest contribution is his ability to blend a full range of emotion, from action to heartache, with seamless transitions from scene to scene. Although this abridged version seems short on historical fact and long on soap opera settings, it is well worth listeners' time. But Herrmann's reading is the shining star here and should not be missed. T.J.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 99]
