tall tales

Audio can bring to life a book that might otherwise go ignored. For me, that is certainly the case for Listen and Live audio productions of the Jacky Faber book by L A Meyer. MISSISSIPPI JACK is a fine audio narrated by Katy Kellgren. She brings to life not only Jacky, the pluckiest heroine this side of the Mississippi but also a cast of characters that includes the indomitable Jaimie, the love of Jacky's life. And then there is Mike Fink, a boat captain and braggart extraordinnaire. At the beginning fo the novel, Jacky escapes from certain hanging and heads off into the wilderness along the Allegheny, Ohio, and ultimately the Mississippi in her quest to be reunited with Jaimie and live happily ever after. It was a perfect listen as I sat and had the first pedicure of the season (bright purple nails now and lots less icky dry skin) and some of the other errands about town on this last day of Spring Break.
