But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust funds, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of wanton pleasure seeking. But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled and alone, Luke takes a job at one of his father's copy centers.

    Story

    This is a typical Richard Paul Evans read with a message and a happy ending. I must admit I was actually "surprised" by a few of the events in the story which was great. While I enjoyed the story, I really had a hard time with the narrator. I cringed waiting for him to inhale through his nose and lick his lips. There are several parts where I had to stop listening for a while because I was so distracted by the narrator. I prefer when Richard Paul Evans narrates his own books as he does in The Walk.

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Story

    It is true, Grisham's books tend to be predictable and The Confession is no exception. Considering I am a huge fan of John Grisham and all of his novels, I was not the least bit disappointed with this story. As a matter of fact, the Confession left me questioning my own beliefs regarding the death penalty. My heart went out to Deante Davis and his family. I know I have listened to good story when my emotions take over.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Story

    I love to read but have never been interested in literature set during WWII. Unbroken was my first WWII "listen" and it is truely a remarkable read. I found myself captivated by the story. I was drawn to learn more and more about Louie and his life as a POW. I am simply amazed this is a non-fiction book and cannot even begin to fathom how this man survived "the bird." I will be listening to this one again.

    Most singles unconsciously make the same mistakes over and over again in love, regardless of age, work success, or the type of man they are dating. Using her unique four-pronged approach, Dr. Diana pulls no punches. She outlines a program that gets women on the path to smash through their self-sabotage and forge a healthy love relationship.

    Overall

    I tried to listen to this, but couldn't make it through the first chapter. I even tried skipping around to other chapters, but discovered the content and suggestions sounded as though it was written in the 70's. The author's voice is unpleasant to listen to as well. I was disappointed. This is the only audio title that I wish I could erase.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Story

    When you stop to realize that this is an actual account of what a 4 year old boy experienced when undergoing an emergency appendectomy, you will find it to be very compelling. I listened to it in the car on a 3 hour trip. I hadn't quite made it to the end and could not wait for some quiet time to listen to the end.

    This book is a favorite for me right now. What I enjoy most about The Power is the soundtrack that accompanies the narrators. It is like going to the movies but not seeing any picture. The music builds to add drama in the appropriate locations. I also enjoy Rhonda Byrne's accent.
