Imagine the excitement when the first road is built through the village, when actors come to town, when Miss Girzy dies in a fire with the symbols of her greed clutched in either hand. This podcast raves about John Galt's classic Scottish novel about a village that grows into a town at the turn of the nineteenth century. Annals of the Parish is about instantly recognisable people set against rapidly changing provincial society. For readers who like a good saga.

Excellent! My first full podcast session and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You do make the book sound like such a good read: the humor, the tragedy, the whole setting of it. Having become such a slow reader, and often finding narrated ones too frustrating, I may well get into these podcasts, conveying the whole sense of a book in a size I can handle.
