  • The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot: A New Look at the Betrayer and Betrayed

    Lost for nearly 1,700 years, newly restored and authenticated, the Gospel of Judas presents a very different view of the relationship between Jesus and Judas. Rather than paint Judas as a traitor, it portrays him as acting at Jesus' request.

    An Excellent and fascinating story revealing that some early Christians had a completely different perspective of Judas. Highly recommended for anyone interested in early Christian history.
    Dennis Boutsikaris does an outstanding job at narrating; his style is warm and conversational.

    Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a genius at math - and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes.

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    After finishing "Blood Sucking Fiends" LMAO, I had to download the sequel. This was book 290 for me and hands down, Susan Bennett delivered one of the best performances I have yet to hear. OMG! Her presentation of the chronicles of Abby were truly hilarious. Christopher Moore has won a new fan.
    This book screams sequel because of the three mysterious characters at the end. Lets hope there are plans to reveal their story.

    Tasty, lethal, hallucinogenic, and medicinal - fruits have led nations into wars, fueled dictatorships, and even lured us into new worlds. Adam Leith Gollner weaves business, science, and travel into a riveting narrative about one of the earth's most desired foods.

    Overall

    Stephen Hoyes narration style is absolutely perfect for this book. Top notch!!
    If you enjoyed; Animal Vegetable, Miracle and even Michael Pollens books, then you will find this enjoyable and eye opening as well. Did you ever wondered why the peaches, plums, apples etc...in your supermarket taste more like dry tennis balls than the sweet nectary goodness you expect?
    What also makes this book enjoyable are the many interesting and very quirky characters that Adam meets along the way as well as the historical tidbits about fruit. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to foodies. Its a fun and enlightening read (listen).
