  • Life after Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon - Survival of Bodily Death

    In Life after Life, Raymond Moody investigates more than 100 case studies of people who experienced "clinical death" and were subsequently revived. First published in 1975, this classic exploration of life after death started a revolution in popular attitudes about the afterlife and established Dr. Moody as the world's leading authority in the field of near-death experiences.

    What did you love best about Life after Life?

    As a philosophical and a religious person I found this book very intriguing. I don't know what conclusions to draw on the validity of any of the claims made in the book, but I do believe that the experiences shared are believed to be real by those that shared them and they offer some very interesting insights into the hereafter.

    Where does Catching Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is an interesting twist on the first story but feels a little contrived. The first is still the best of the three.

    If you aren't a teenage girl, there is nothing in this book that you can identify with or find entertaining.

    Story

    In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself.

    What made the experience of listening to Into the Wild the most enjoyable?

    I think everyone has at some point fantasized about leaving the world behind and going on the road. Becoming a drifter, or an explorer of urban america. This is a story about someone who actually did it. This is the perfect form of escapism.

    David Sedaris' collection of essays - including live recordings! - tells a most unconventional life story. With every clever turn of a phrase, Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other to every unforgettable encounter. You can also listen to Sedaris in an interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air.

    What did you like best about Me Talk Pretty One Day? What did you like least?

    As mentioned in the title of this review, the author's drab style of writing and narrating gets old about halfway through the book. At a certain point I felt like I was hearing the same story just in different settings with different characters over and over again.


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Sedaris? Why or why not?

    No. I don't find his style entertaining anymore after this book.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15082)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "One of my new favorites from King"

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

    I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Stephen King. It takes fantasy/sci-fi into the world of alternate history and all the while you don't realize you're reading a love story.


    What other book might you compare 11-22-63 to and why?

    Very similar narrative and atmosphere as Insomnia.


    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favorite?

    Craig Wasson - he was the perfect pick to narrate this book.
