    Story

    This was a great book. I really found myself unable to put this down. I somewhat expected a dry, one sided, hatchet job. Instead this was detailed story starting with the early life of the clearly troubled founder of Scientology and continuing to the present day. I fully enjoyed the reading of every footnote. I did not really expect to, but I learned a lot. The writing and the narration were both quite compelling.

    I have not been a fan of Scientology since a friend of mine joined, and after a few years called me having just escaped penniless and only wearing his underwear out of a window after a many hour auditing session with several people pointing out body thetons on him that were visible to them but not visible to my friend. I agree many of the ideas of Scientology are no weirder than any other religion, and I always thought the basic idea of auditing sounded interesting and potentially useful, but there does seem to be a pattern of secrecy and intimidation not seen elsewhere. This book presents a pattern of paranoia, violence; control, and hypocrisy with an intensity that is truly shocking. I would recommend anyone thinking about Scientology to read this book first.

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    Story
    What disappointed you about A Course in Miracles: Text, Vol. 1?

    This is NOT a review of A Course in Miracles. It is a review of the Audible rendition of it. The chapter list in the Audible content does not correspond to the chapter in ACIM so there is no way to go to a particular chapter that you are studying. The voice does not announce what chapter it is at the start of each section, so I can't even use that to go back or forth and find the right place. This Audible book is basically useless to me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dr. Helen Schucman (scribe)? Why or why not?

    Yes of course, but not in Audible format unless the fix the chapter list.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I LOVE The book, in printed form, just not the Audible version.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be awesome if they would redo this with real chapters.

  • "Terrifying, Dramatic, and Informative!"

    Where does The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I saw the movie The Conjuring last week and wanted to know more about Ed & Lorraine Warren, who are the leads in the film. I didn't know quite what to expect from the book. Turns out it scared me more than the movie! These cases are true. This isn't a work of fiction. The narrator was really good and did so many interesting voices. I really liked Ed's voice, he is very down to earth, even though he has seen so much... I would put this audiobook easily in my top 3 of all time.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    It wasn't too religious at all, and the stories are true! You can tell there was a lot of research behind it. Very well written. And very dramatic. Leave the lights on for sure!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Some scenes involving the exorcisms were very intense. Those were my favorite. The demonic voices the narrator did were amazing/terrifying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I would have listened it in one sitting, but I had to go to work. When I got back home, I got to listen to the rest of it!

She remembered the night Solomon had visited her in her bedroom after her brother and his friend had shot him, but she hadn't really thought about him being a ghost that night; she'd just been so glad to see her beloved feathered friend.

Throughout the book, Harris argues that there are important truths to be found in the experiences of such contemplatives - and, therefore, that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow.

These initiatives, when geared to the preferences of each child, make them feel loved and, thus, more receptive to guidance and redirection when needed. The authors are inspiring writers whose examples and quotes from children and parents are instructive.
