    Would you consider the audio edition of The Waste Lands to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, because I just simply would not be able to read this book. I need the audio because I can then listen during drives and while working.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bringing Jake back into the story. I love that boy!


    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - always a wonderful performance!


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

    Roland and Jake's struggle to reconcile their doubled timelines.


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series is awesome, made much easier to enjoy because it's in audio format.

    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"

    Stanley the Magical Squirrel and the raccoon story.


    What about Jenny Lawson’s performance did you like?

    I couldn't imagine anyone else could deliver her story with such feeling and humor!


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

    Gabi's revenge.


    Any additional comments?

    There is nothing I can say that will compare to the actual experience of the book. But I enjoyed it from start to finish, like it so much I bought the Kindle book also.

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

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

    Yes because there is no way I could ever read this book. I tried several times over the years but the series seemed so daunting that I just gave up trying. I am glad the audio version is available because I have really enjoyed the series.


    What other book might you compare The Gunslinger to and why?

    I have never read any books that I can compare to this one.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Excellent altogether! He livens up the story and gives it depth and form.


    If you could take any character from The Gunslinger out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Roland might have been interesting at this point in the series - he's less developed.

    As one of the greatest rock icons of all time, Gregg Allman has lived it all and then some. For almost 50 years, he's been creating some of the most recognizable songs in American rock, but never before has he paused to reflect on the long road he's traveled. Now, he tells the unflinching story of his life, laying bare the unvarnished truth about his wild ride that has spanned across the years.

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

    Absolutely would recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about Gregg Allman. My spouse knew some of the folks with the Allman Brothers band and knew most of this history. He was curious how much Gregg would put out there and in my spouse's opinion, Gregg really put it ALL out there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I shared listening to this with my husband and we enjoyed just talking about the book together. It's just funny and sad and all those things that happen in a real person's life.


    Have you listened to any of Will Patton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he did a great job with this reading and sounded very similar to Gregg.


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

    When he talks about his attempts to reconcile with his children and does so honestly and sometimes it is heartbreaking - but real.

After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower.

    Odetta/Detta/Susannah - I can't imagine how fun that might be!


    Any additional comments?

    I have always liked Stephen King's writing..but avoided this series because it seemed so daunting - listening to this in audiobook format is great and has opened a new wonderful experience.

    This powerful audio program, created and narrated by Louise L. Hay, contains a series of positive affirmations that will help you experience the joy, fulfillment, love, and wonder that are present in you right now. Hearing affirmations audibly or subliminally is like the planting of seeds in a well-tended garden. It takes time for them to germinate, take root, and blossom. So, to reap the maximum benefits from affirmations, you need only be faithful and consistent in your use of this program.

    What did you love best about Self-Esteem Affirmations?

    Pleasant background music, great affirmations - good start for those of us who have trouble "thinking up" our own affirmations.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Self-Esteem Affirmations?

    There is a nice little section that relates to self love that I enjoyed.


    Have you listened to any of Louise L. Hay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have. I think this is comparable to others I have listened to. I like the way she gives the affirmations with I and You.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Self-Esteem Affirmations?

    It's just a very nice listen to start a day on an upbeat or to soothe yourself down from the end of the day.

    Moonlight Bay: a safe, secluded small town that is at its most picturesque in the gentle nighttimes that inspired its name. But now, somewhere in the night, children are disappearing. Christopher Snow believes that the children are still alive. He is convinced the disappearances have everything to do with the catastrophic effects of secret research conducted deep within Fort Wyvern. To keep those secrets, violent and powerful forces are willing to conceal even the most heinous crimes.

    I have been impressed by Koontz's grasp of human psychology. He is not afraid to look into and invite us to look into the human mind. From slightly crass humor to deeply touching insights - Koontz covers the whole gamut.
