  • Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs

    Successful couples know that harmony and happiness in marriage are not achieved by love alone. There is the other side of the Ephesians 5:33 equation - respect. Yes, a wife needs love. But a husband needs respect. Based on extensive biblical and scientific research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs reveals the secret to couples meeting each other's deepest needs: Without love she reacts without respect, and without respect he reacts without love and a destructive, vicious cycle begins.

    Bogdel says: "Very Good!"
    "Required reading for all couples"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book and agreed with Mr. Eggerichs analysis of the crazy cycle and the fact that we all need to do whatever it takes to get off of it! I would have enjoyed reading the book, skimming the repetitive parts and re-reading the ah-ha moments...but it is not such a tedious listen that I wanted to stop. He has a pleasant voice and the message is spot-on. So, relax through the repetitive parts, realizing that you need to commit it to memory and apply it in your relationship. Everyone wants to be happy, your partner is not the enemy...love and respect them and they will reciprocate.

    Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.

    We were not created to just get by with average, unrewarding or unfulfilling lives. God created us to leave our marks on our generations. Every person has seeds of greatness planted within by the Creator. When life weighs upon us, pushing us down, limiting our thinking, labeling us in negative ways, we have what it takes to overcome and rise above into the fullness of our destinies.

    Like his preaching, Joel Osteen delivers a high-quality, well polished message that uplifts and encourages his readers. I respect him for his commitment to excellence and appreciate his desire to write from the heart, sharing his personal stories and struggles while remaining true to the Word of God. Having enjoyed earlier books, I was concerned that this book wouldn't have a fresh word for me. I was wrong. At the recommendation of a friend who had just finished the book, I ordered it and rapidly listened and was transformed. Joel Osteen understands the importance of shaking off the past, pushing through difficult times and believing in the power of God to transform and use everything in our lives for His glory. I am keeping this one close by for easy access (re-read/listening) again soon.

  • Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What an amazing expose of life in restaurant kitchens! Great story telling in Anthony's unmistakable sarcastic, ascerbic style and voice. If you have any curiosity about how top notch restaurant kitchens run, look no further, Anthony explains it here with humor and sometime shocking details. Even if some of the stories are embellished for story-telling (which I am not saying they are) you believe his story because he admits to his mistakes and applies plenty of self-deprecating humor to make sure you know he's a regular guy who happens to be insatiably curious and passionate about food. I know I will relish hearing this one again and again.

    Make no mistake, I was not an instantaneous Anthony Bourdain fan the first time I saw him 10 years ago...He is definitely an "acquired taste" not always endearing himself to the audience. He has mellowed over the years and I have truly come to appreciate his talent as an author and entertaining food/travel show host. I would love to experience his cooking and hear more of his stories over drinks at a corner bar.

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am biased, I think Stephen King is a Master of his craft...so I expected to love this story and I certainly did. I have read everything Mr. King has written and admit my pleasure of being scared out of my wits has diminished with age, so this was even more enjoyable to listen to. There is no graphic violence, good mystery/ghost story, a love story and interesting characters. I didn't want the story to end. I think the only reason I didn't give it five stars across the board is that the ending was a bit predictable. But again, I admit, I liked the ending just fine. Narrators can really make or break it, so I was very pleased with Michael Kelly.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    What did you love best about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?

    I have seen the original movie (dubbed in English) and was riveted. Honestly, I was afraid the book might be more graphic and violent than the movie, but it is not. It is a very intense story but unlike the movie, the author had the chance to explain the character's motivation and thoughts. I really could not stop listening and was so anxious for the story to move forward at times I was tempted to fast forward. The biggest draw back is the innane details about the Vanger Family history...of course, some if it is necessary to bring the story all together at the end. But it is way too much detail and distracts from the plot. I enjoyed the interplay between Salander and Blomkwist.

    Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect - she’s lovely, charming, and a successful real estate agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up in her present condition....

    Overall

    For anyone unsure about whether or not Fannie Flagg could be a great actress and author...be assured she is both! Her stories are more about the characters and their lives, rich with details and surprises that will delight the reader. I have read/listened to all of her books and this did not disappoint. It's a bit slow for the first few chapters and the main character is whining a bit too much about her lot in life, that we know nothing about early on. I was rewarded as the story unfolded and was introduced to the lives of her friends and the reasons for her self doubt and depression. She always weaves in some historical fiction and that really makes the story come alive for me. If you loved Fried Green Tomatos or any of her other stories, you will love this too. I am very pleased that Fannie Flagg reads her own work, she is wonderful narrator and author.
