If you are on a spiritual path, or would like to be, read this book. I recommend you combine it with Oprah's online classes from earlier this year - she discusses each chapter with Tolle and it's a wonderful guide.
If you enjoy the genre of Historians as Time Travelers, you will enjoy this listen. The story line stays on track and interesting and the historical references are detailed enough to be intriguing without being ridden to death.
I normally enjoy Spider Robinson and was looking forward to this listen. Unfortunately, it is so mired in trite mid-20th century pop culture that the slang and cultural references used jarred me out of the story. References to 'Fibber McGee's Closet' in a sci fi novel? Really?!?
I enjoy Laurie King and was surprised by the subject. The descriptions can get Dickensian and in my opinion the beginning bogs down in a lengthy set up of characters and milieu.
Unexpected twists and characters pop up and liven the narrative, so by the end it's quite enjoyable.
This series has very tight and exciting plot lines as well as fun characters. It's listenable mayhem which will distract from any boring must-do activity, like getting your cardio in. I have grabbed every book in the series and they're an easy listen.
A pleasant surprise, with a depth of characterization and great sensitivity in dealing with the material. very worthwhile listen.
I was enjoying the story until about Chapter 96, when the audio skips irretrievably. There must be better versions available.
If you remember the joys of the 'fun run' and scatological marching cadences still make you snort with laughter, you will revel in John Ringo's books. The plots and characters are non-stop thrills, but even better for military veterans, the tactics, situations and people all ring true to what we lived with. Smell the cordite and taste the MREs again, without having to live in a tent.
I was pleasantly surprised with this book and really enjoyed the performance and characters. A much more interesting tale that the average superhero yarn, the characters were three dimensional and 'real' despite superpowers, powers that are sometimes more pain and strife than useful.
ROFL funny for all space-opera addicts, particularly Star Trek fans. The guy in the red shirts dies horribly on away missions, does he?
A wonderful spoof, but with a rollicking plot.
He has outdone himself, clearly enjoyed the material.
Grinned contantly, laughed out loud frequently. Really brightened up a bad day I was having.
I would tell any of my friends with a well developed sense of satire and irony that they would love this.
"Death by Fart"
The diplomatic incident leading to the search for the blue fleece (really a search for a golden fleece, or fleecing...)
I had to know what would happen next, not predictable at all, which I find very enjoyable. Kept me going during many a workout.
Snort alert - don't have liquids in your mouth for the first several chapters, you'll have a clean up.
