  • The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 5 mins)

    Story
    (29)

    A brilliant skeptic, Jose Saramago envisions the life of Jesus Christ and the story of his Passion as things of this earth: A child crying, the caress of a woman half asleep, the bleat of a goat, a prayer uttered in the grayish morning light. His idea of the Holy Family reflects the real complexities of any family, and, as only Saramago can, he imagines them with tinges of vision, dream, and omen.

    Gaurav says: "A dry, wry retelling of the story of Jesus Christ"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No! The story and reasearch was excellently developed! I would change the NARRATOR! His overly sarcastic tone did not compare to the rich depth of historical reality in the written words! I enjoyed the reading more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved the Historical details in Saramago's imagination.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Blumenfeld?

    Simon Vance would have done a great job!


    Was The Gospel According to Jesus Christ worth the listening time?

    Could bot get beyond the narrator...will keep trying...but I really did not like this narrator's interpretation.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Go the F--k to Sleep to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Samuel L Jackson brings a different reality to my mind! I enjoyed listening to another as I pretty much beeped through m,y mind while reading!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    not all that memorable except for the swearing ..sorry!


    What does Samuel L. Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    HE curses better than I would...lol.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.
