    Story
    (1521)

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Proof of Heaven the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it tackles the question which everyone who has ever lived, deals with.The question 'what is after death?' This is a well done true story about a man who has dealt with other people's fear of death on a daily basis and what happens when he is faced with death. Having a first hand narrator helps to not only 'hear' the story but to feel it also.


    What other book might you compare Proof of Heaven to and why?

    I haven't wanted to read other Near Death Experience books, but when I saw it was a Neuro-surgeon, it really got my attention. Credibility is a big issue for me.


    What about Eben Alexander’s performance did you like?

    He comes across as being very sincere and genuine.


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

    When he talked about his mother ,( I don't want to give away any of the story ) it was hard not to feel the tears.


    Any additional comments?

    This will grab your attention for more than just the time you put into reading it. Real life is real life, no matter how many scoffers there are out there.They certainly need to read the whole book before making rash judgments. One of the top books I have listened to on Audible. Thank-you Audible. And thank-you Eben Alexander.

    Story

    The author, comes across to me, as one of the most credible investigators of the murder of JFK. I would have absolutely loved to have met this man and listened to his wisdom. I remember the day I heard that our President was shot, and I saw Lee Harvey Oswald murdered that weekend, live on TV. Everyone I knew was weeping with intense sadness. It was a horrible day for our country. How could this happen in the great ole USA? And so, our generation had to live with this tragedy and then live with the lies our leaders told us about this event. Gaeton Fonzi has helped me tie up; many of the loose ends I had in my mind about that time in our history in a very credible and detailed book. For me the book is very interesting and it was hard to put it down. Gaeton was one of the true patriots of our day. Great book. Thank-you Audible for allowing the truth to be revealed through this book.

    Mark Lane tried the only US court case in which the jurors concluded that the CIA plotted the murder of President Kennedy, but there was always a missing piece: How did the CIA control cops and secret service agents on the ground in Dealey Plaza? How did federal authorities prevent the House Select Committee on Assassinations from discovering the truth about the complicity of the CIA? Now, Mark Lane tells all in this explosive new book.

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

    Definitely based on Mark Lane's thorough explanation of an event that shook the world


    What did you like best about this story?

    His critique of Vincent Bugliosi's book and his revealing of Buglios's hypocrisy and ineptness.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    Clear and believable.


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

    I remember the day JFK was murdered and the utter sadness of everyone that I knew. Then the totally unbelievable murder of Oswald, in of all places .....the Dallas Police station. Now, after listening to Mr. Lane's book, I feel outrage at the lies our government put out there. They shouldn't wonder why people are not so patriotic anymore.


    Any additional comments?

    It would also be a good idea to watch the movie- "Rush to Judgement" Thank-you Mark Lane for your service to this country.

  • The Poisonwood Bible

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    Story

    There are many different viewpoints available to us through books. This book is written from a pro communist atheist woman's point of view. You are left with a feeling of hopelessness for this world we live in. She reveals to us that most men are prone to violence unless of course they are socialists. She tries to give us a very negative view of the United States and almost anything that is related to faith in God. I must admit that it is an entertaining story, but the bitterness that exudes from this woman is nauseating. She paints her prejudices with a broad brush. Fortunately she doesn't speak for all women (although I think she thinks she does). There is some truth in the story about the hypocrisy of religion, but I think it's taken to an extreme. This book has an obvious arrogant leftist agenda and does not offer a balanced viewpoint. I will, be looking at getting other books about Africa. Just not from this woman. I got fooled by all the positive reviews.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Story

    Seems to be written from the point of view of a 'blue blood' New England liberal, who is looking down his nose while he writes about a place he hasn't lived in. Shows a distorted view of Texas (having lived there, I know) , and anything or anyone that is religious is made fun of. You will be much happier purchasing 'JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters' if you are looking for a much more balanced look at the 'big event'.
    Mr King's book is more for those looking for a romance novel. A disappointing book and too long for what it is, unless you love very long romance novels.
