REVIEWS AND WHERE TO PURCHASE TO LIVE OUT LOUD:
Narrated by Charles Mandonette, this is a fictional tale of an historical event, an event that displayed how courageous human beings can be, and the depths to which The Powers That Be can sink. This is a powerful story, set c1900, of a Jewish military officer, Alfred Dreyfus, falsely accused of spying, and novelist Emile Zola. Zola risks everything to prove Dreyfus’ innocence – his family, his career, his life. This is the stuff of drama, made even more compelling because the events were all too real.
The author not only captures the personal and political drama of the Dreyfus Affair, but also weaves in vivid descriptions of Parisian society. The book is not only detailed and well-researched, but also well-written; a tale of social and personal injustice, To Live Out Loud is a moving story beautifully told.
To Live Out Loud is essential reading, as a window on the past, and also to shed light on our corrupt and brutal times. Even if you have no interest in historical fiction, this book will hold your attention from beginning to end. To Live Out Loud is a triumph, a book that will stay with you long after you have read the final page.
Well written work of fiction that could easily be non-fiction, October 29, 2015
This review is from: To Live Out Loud: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
This was an interesting and extremely well written book about an officer (Dreyfus), a Jewish officer in the French Army, who is court maritaled, and exiled, on fabricated evidence. Then a writer (Zola) stands up against the injustice and pens an article that divides a country. This happened during a time of anti semitism, which adds fuel to the fire, as Zola is taken to court for libel (and really is existence). I don’t want to give away the story here…. The writing is extremely professional and descriptive. The court room drama is vivid and you can see it in your minds eye. This is a great book whether or not you have a healthy background in history.

I really enjoyed this story – the words flowed so beautifully that I’m under the impression that historical fiction is a sweet spot of talent for this author. I’m really quite impressed – the pace was just right and she rolled out the technicalities of Zola’s life and court proceedings with ease. Great way to learn about this particular piece of history!

I don’t usually read these kinds of stories, but once I started reading His Name was Ben, I couldn’t put it down. A heart breaking love story about cancer victims, hope, and survival. Great story.
