    Catherine Ling was abandoned on the streets of Hong Kong at age four. Schooled in the art of survival, she traded in the only commodity she had: information. As a teenager, she came under the tutelage of a mysterious man known only as Hu Chang - a skilled assassin and master poisoner. As a young woman, she was recruited by the CIA and now she is known as one of their most effective operatives.

    There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska... and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go. The Duncans want Reacher gone - and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment, and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy.

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

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

    I highly recommend this book. It can be difficult at times, as the characters are somewhat raw, and sometimes thoroughly unlikable. However, the story is compelling and drags you along even if you want to give up on the lives and petty concerns of the inhabitants of this small town. By the time I reached the end, I was sorry it was over, and sorry that I would not be traveling farther with the inhabitants, about whom now I want to know more. It was beautifully read.

    Glenn Harrold, the UK's best-selling hypnotherapist, combines the very latest clinical hypnotherapy techniques with state of the art digital sound to aid weight loss. On this high-quality recording you will hear a pleasant voice and absorbing sound effects that guide you into a deeply relaxed state of mental and physical relaxation. In this very receptive relaxed state you will be given a number of post hypnotic suggestions and carefully layered affirmations to help you achieve your goals.

    Catherine says: "Very Helpful for some People"
    "Recommended"
    Overall

    A very good experience. Glenn focuses only on positive and affirming messages, and the result is effective and empowering. To a North American, his accent is a little distracting at first, but I got used to it after two or three tries. You may be tempted to think of this as the "lazy person's way to lose weight" but I have found it be remarkably easy, motivating, and successful.

    Join the thousands of people who have overcome their sleep disorders and insomnia by using this superb, high quality hypnosis CD and MP3 download by Glenn Harrold - the UK's best-selling self-help audio author. Insomnia and other sleep problems are often caused by stress, anxiety and a busy mind at bedtime. Glenn's highly acclaimed hypnotherapy techniques and audio production will help you overcome these problems in a completely safe and natural way.

    Leslie Catt says: "Almost perfect"
    "Very Good"
    Overall

    I found Glenn's account a little difficult to get used to at first, but after a time it was fine. His approach is straighforward, soothing, and effective, and contains none of the distracting or irritating elments that one sometimes finds in other audio tracks of this type. I recommend this audio book.
