    This is the classic biography of reggae legend Bob Marley, updated and revised for the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death. Bob Marley left an indelible mark on modern music, both as a reggae pioneer and as an enduring cultural icon. Catch a Fire, now a classic rock biography, delves into the life of this man, the leader of a musical and spiritual revolution that continues today. The book chronicles Marley’s life and career, as well as the milieu that shaped his spiritual and political beliefs.

    Would you listen to Catch a Fire again? Why?

    Probably not -. While I did find the information contained within the story somewhat riveting, at times it could be a tough listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I would never think that the Marley legacy was marred in such struggle and down right disgust. Not on Bob's part, but the people that are so fricken greedy and would stop at nothing to exploit a fellow human


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to mention.


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

    Not really - there was a lot of information to digest


    Any additional comments?

    The narrators use of certain past tense suffixes "ed" and possessives plurals "'s" was somewhat though to listen to time after time. But I would definitely recommend to a friend

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

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

    I would definitely recommend this book to friends.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Outliers?

    This book was a culmination of moments. Every chapter had its interesting discovery.


    What does Malcolm Gladwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You hear the words that way the Author intended. Audio books read by the Author instill the feelings that belong to the words.


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

    This book was definitely one that you did not want to stop listening too. As previously stated, that next chapter held further discovery that was worth getting to.


    Any additional comments?

    I will have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical when first purchasing this book. I was not familiar with Malcolm Gladwell or his work. My skepticism was also the motivation for my purchase. I wanted to hear from someone I was unfamiliar with, a new perspective if you wish. I found this book captivating and intriguing. Mr. Gladwell put a spin on success that was honest and forthcoming. If you are looking for rah-rah or "secrets", this book is not for you. If you are looking for honesty and discovery, I highly recommend this book! Happy Reading! And of course: Thank You Malcolm Gladwell for a job well done.

  • Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible

    Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times best seller, Misquoting Jesus, left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches...and it's not what most people think. This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for, a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

    Where does Jesus, Interrupted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is extremely informative. It should be a must on everybodys list!


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

    No, It does take several sittings to get through the entire book. It is extremely well written and easy to understand.


    Any additional comments?

    While many profess to be “Believers", very few take the time to truly examine their beliefs. This is a disgustingly sad fact that as a Judeo-Christian nation most do not even know the basis of such beliefs. If after listening to this book, you still believe in the manmade God of scripture, good for you. At least you had the courage to listen.

  • God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    Story

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to God Is Not Great the most enjoyable?

    Eye opening! Mr. Hitchens approaches the taboo of religious discord with vigor. He is fearless in his attempt to right the wrong that many religions pervade upon society.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The honest approach at disclosure


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

    First


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

    Each paragraph was compelling. This book has to be taken in its entirety.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, I just discovered Christopher Hitchens. My only regret is not knowing about his works years ago!
