  • Scientology: Abuse at the Top

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By Amy Scobee
    • Narrated By Danielle Plaso

    A former top insider reveals the nightmare world of violence and abuse at the highest levels of the Church of Scientology. One review states: "At home alone, a 14 year old girl takes a phone call from Scientology. This starts a quarter of a century journey of manipulation, betrayal and sexual, physical and mental abuse. This journey leads to the highest management echelon and one woman's courage to break free. A real page-turner." Mark P. Another writes: "Amy Scobee has written a book unlike any other expose of Scientology.

    Christina says: "OMG the Narration!"
    "Very poor audio"
    Would you try another book from Amy Scobee and/or Danielle Plaso?

    Amy Scobee yes. Danielle Plaso, not so sure.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Amy Scobee? Why or why not?

    Yes. If it is about scientology.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Danielle Plaso?

    An older voice. This voice sounds very young. It doesn't suit the subject matter. It is read like a teen novel, which is very surreal. Emphases are very strange. I had to go back and listen to some sentences again to understand.

    Any additional comments?

    Audio quality is very poor and the quality changes a lot. Later recordings are edited in..quite sloppy. "Notes" are recorded with a different microphone...sounds like an old fashioned phone microphone...quite annoying and I don't get the point...

  • Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs)
    • By Jenna Miscavige Hill
    • Narrated By Sandy Rustin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    Tim says: "The Despicable Truth Behind Scientology"
    "Very informative and well read"
    If you could sum up Beyond Belief in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, honest, shocking

    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty and straight forward attitude. Also very informative and well explained, easy to understand for a non-scientologist. The world of scientology is explained well, including lingo, positions, history and rules. It takes a lot of courage to expose yourself like this to the world and I commend Jenna MH for her courage and thank her for sharing her story with us.

    What about Sandy Rustin’s performance did you like?

    The voice, which is quite young, suited the book very well. I felt like I was listening to Jenna read the book. She was also very articulate and involved in the text. It felt more like somebody telling me the story (Jenna) then somebody reading for me.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In a world of complete conviction, control and manipulation one girl dared to stand up for herself. This is her story.

    Any additional comments?

    If you are a non-scientologist and you want to know what the world is like on the inside of ST then look no further. I hope a lot of people read this book and become educated on scientology and the terrible practices that go on behind closed doors. The more people are educated the less tolerance ST will have and the fewer members ST will get. So read and become educated.
