    Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt.

    Friends told me about "The Shack" which I have listened to a number of times - excellent story, but "Cross Roads" is even better. Excellent story and excellent message. This is one of the best books I have ever read or listened to.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Story
    (600)

    A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. In constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; he cut himself off from those he loved. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever....

    If you could sum up Until Tuesday in three words, what would they be?

    His Own Story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Luis tells us what's it's really like, coming home from a war in which you can't always see the enemy.


    What about Luis Carlos Montalvan’s performance did you like?

    Well written and well read - Luis does a great job of telling his own story in his own words with his own voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    For people like Luis, the cost of war in places like Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, is much grerater than the cost in the dollars and cents that the government tells us about.

    Done in the trademark Ziglar style, this audio will help anyone focus on getting motivated to confront and transform the things that stand in the way of making life "better than good". Experience Zig's practical and spiritual vision for what life can be when we allow purpose and passion to fill our souls.

    Jeremy says: "This book is BETTER than GOOD"
    "The Best Zig Book Yet !!!"
    Overall

    Over the years I have listened to many of Zig's books. This is by far the best.

Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog. But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

    This is the best book I have ever listened to. Make sure you have a box of kleenex handy because there are times when you will need it. The story is very touching, to say the least.

  • On Secret Service

    Story

    On Secret Service is the story of a war within a war on various levels: the North versus the South, the Union's Pinkerton Detective Agency versus the Confederacy's agent provocateurs, and youthful idealism versus youthful lust. It chronicles the lives and times of four young Americans, from the war's early tremors in January 1861 through its bloody conclusion: Lincoln's assassination and John Wilkes Booth's murder in May 1865.

    DMHVetSurveyor says: "Great Deal!!"
    "Great Listening..."
    Overall

    The role of Pinkertons and spying - sounds like a dry subject - but not when dealt with by John Jakes. This is an exciting book, and once you start to listen, you will have a hard time hitting the "stop" button.

    This is an excellent audio book and I highly recommend it.
