    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book could have more substance. I found parts dull and drifted off to other thoughts. It was not as riveting as some other autobiographies. Perhaps more detail on the rest of the family, Emilio's siblings and his mother would make it more interesting.


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first book I have listened to by this author.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the scenes when Martin Sheen describes his father. He does a great job of imitating his father's voice with the strong accent. You can empathize with the man and appreciate his efforts in raising his children on his own after becoming a widower.


    Was Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son worth the listening time?

    This book is worth listening to especially if you a fan of Martin Sheen and his roles in movies and plays. Although it did seem to slow at times.


    Any additional comments?

    Martin Sheen's son Emilio who is not as well known to me, sounds like his dad! He seems to be the special son who has not made the same mistakes as his father and brother Charlie.

    Carole Barber has come to Paris to find herself after a lifetime in the spotlight. A legend of film and stage, Carole has set a standard of beauty and grace, devoting herself to her family and causes around the world. But on this cool November evening, a fiery instant of terror shatters hundreds of lives - and leaves Carole alone, unconscious, and unidentified in a Paris emergency room.

    Honor Thyself creates an unforgettable portrait of a public figure whose hopes, fears, and heartbreaks are as real as our own. Her courageous journey inspires us all.

    Mary says: "Awesome"
    "Not Steel's best"
    Overall

    I enjoy Danielle Steel's novels as a diversion from hectic living and an easy read. Honor Thyself is minimally intriguing and even more predictable than her other novels. I was disappointed but listened to the entire book hoping the plot would thicken,but alas, it did not.

  • Every Breath You Take: A True Story of Obsession, Revenge, and Murder

    "If anything ever happens to me, promise me that you will see that there is an investigation...And find Ann Rule and ask her to write my story," Sheila Blackthorne Bellush told her sister after she divorced multimillionaire Allen Blackthorne. Now, in perhaps the first book ever written at a victim's request, America's best selling true-crime writer, Ann Rule, untangles a horrific web of lies that culminated in Sheila's savage murder more than 10 years after she left Blackthorne.

    krista says: "Well worth it"
    "Always a winner with Ann Rule"
    Overall

    This book was excellent as are this author's other books. Ann Rule weaves the tale in such a way that you can't stop reading or listening. There is a good mix of police investigation facts, court room drama, and best of all the delving into the personalities of the real life characters.
