“When people ask me what has happened in my long lifetime I do not refer them to the newspaper files and to the authorities, but to [Sinclair’s] novels.” —George Bernard Shaw
From the Publisher
In this powerful book we enter the world of Jurgis Rudkus, a young Lithuanian immigrant who arrives in America fired with dreams of wealth, freedom, and opportunity. And we discover, with him, the astonishing truth about "packingtown," the busy, flourishing, filthy Chicago stockyards, where new world visions perish in a jungle of human suffering. Upton Sinclair, master of the "muckraking" novel, here explores the workingman's lot at the turn of the century: the backbreaking labor, the injustices of "wage-slavery," the bewildering chaos of urban life. The Jungle, a story so shocking that it launched a government investigation, recreates this startling chapter if our history in unflinching detail. Always a vigorous champion on political reform, Sinclair is also a gripping storyteller, and his 1906 novel stands as one of the most important -- and moving -- works in the literature of social change.

Overall, this is worth a shot.
UPDATE: Bought in December and it worked pretty darn good for 6 months, now without any warning at all the monitor portion just died and will not power up after only 6 months in use. Not sure what the warranty is, but I am probably not holding my breath.
We especially like the speaker feature. This is in our boys room downstairs and we can use it to talk to them to tell them to be quiet or go to bed. Also when our 3 year old wakes up in the night we use the music feature to lull him back to sleep.
Since our baby boy hasn’t arrived yet, I’ve been doing a lot of preliminary tests setting the camera on our cat’s favorite spots when we leave the house (RIP to Timi’s privacy).
In order to get the best angle of the crib I also bought a corner shelf to work with the monitor. Screen display is clear. Motion detection works flawlessly! Its infrared LED activates immediately when the light’s out, and it is also very clear.
The cameras are super portable. Since the cameras are small, light-weight boxes you can easily unplug them and move them to a new location. We don’t need to worry about not having a plan for grandma’s house or even a hotel stay.
Trust me, I do not usually get this excited about technology. But the Babebay camera has impressed me so much that I’ve already purchased another one and have sung its praises to anyone who will listen. Save yourself the headache and hundreds of dollars and pick Babebay for your baby monitor.
