  • Second Nature: A Love Story

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Jacquelyn Mitchard
    • Narrated By Rebecca Lowman

    Sicily Coyne was just thirteen when her father was killed in a school fire that left her face disfigured. Twelve years later, a young surgeon, Eliza Cappadora, offers hope in the form of a revolutionary new surgery that may give Sicily back the grace and function she lost. Raised by a dynamic, tenacious aunt who taught her to lead a normal life, and engaged to a wonderful man who knew her long before the accident, Sicily rejects the offer: She knows who she is, and so do the people who love her. But a secret surfaces that shatters Sicily’s world....

    "Very interesting, Attention Grabbing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, the book is based on modern concepts such as face transplants, which are in the news all the time. The Book, although fiction, encourage one to think about this very contentious question of face transplants. To such an extent that I have changed my living will to include donating my face as part as my organ donation.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book was very moving

    "Not impressed"
    Would you try another book from Subliminal Hypnosis and/or the narrator?

    Not from this range of audio books

    What was most disappointing about Subliminal Hypnosis’s story?

    I have been buying other Subliminal Hypnosis series where there are suggestions within the audio. With this Audio they are expecting you to 'implant' the suggestions yourself, which I find very ineffective. The reason why I chose this self help audio book was so that the suggestions would subconsciously be absorbed and not that I have to activly repeat like a parrot the suggestions for the subconscious to absorb.

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

    The nature sounds are relaxing when used on its own.

    What did you love best about Hotel Vendome?

    It is relaxing to listen to it, the narrator is very good.

    What about Fred Stella’s performance did you like?

    his pronunciations of the foreign words were flawless and characters portrayals are consistent throughout the book.
