    During his years in a neural-health facility, Pat Peoples has formulated a theory about silver linings. He believes that his life is a movie produced by God, that his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and that if he succeeds, his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki, and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Silver Linings Playbook to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I don't read much due to my schedule and this was a great way to hear the story. I have not had time to see the movie, but am looking forward to seeing it when it is out on video.


    What other book might you compare The Silver Linings Playbook to and why?

    I'm not sure, but it itself is a great story about mental disorders and those who live with people suffering from a mental disorder.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The dance - when all of the friends joined together to congratulate Pat.


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

    No - but it made my rush drives easier to deal with and more relaxing.


    Any additional comments?

    A great read or listen!

  • A Story of God and All of Us: A Novel Based on the Epic TV Miniseries 'The Bible'

    A Story of God and All of Us is a sweeping narrative that dramatizes some of the most important events and characters in the Bible. The book is narrated like a fine novel, dramatizing the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of scripture come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. All are historically and theologically accurate. A 10-hour miniseries on the History Channel will be based on the story, and the script has been reviewed by a number of Christian church leaders and seminarians for authenticity.

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

    Absolutely - This included the essential stories of the bible and leaves the listener wanting more. A great way to become more encouraged to read the Bible. As a woman re-discovering her faith and wanting to know more, this story was a great way to become more intrigued about the mysteries that the Bible holds.


    What other book might you compare A Story of God and All of Us to and why?

    I am not familiar with any other book like this one.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Samson - the narrator gave a very power performance.


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

    Not as extreme as I did watching the mini-series, but I did feel the same gut-wrenching feeling during the crucifixion.

    For the Wittgenstein family, the summer of 1915 was a time of both prosperity and unease, as the guns of war sound in the distance. But for eldest daughter Beata, it was also a summer of awakening. By glimmering Lake Geneva, the quiet Jewish beauty met a young French officer and fell in love.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Echoes to be better than the print version?

    I would imagine the print version would be just as good as the audio version and very hard to put down!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Behtta - a woman with class and dignity yet knows how to take a change. She knew how to love and be faithful to those she loved - no matter what.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

    Simon Prebble was a great narrator - I didn't have one favorite as he was able to do a great job on all the characters.


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

    I cried in the middle due to sadness and cried for joy at the end. A wonderful feel-good kind of cry.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful story of the Holocaust and the victims it targeted - no matter how small or far. This story will leave the reader wanting more...in a good way!
