    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    Overall

    I loved this book, it took over every spare bit of my life whilst listening to it. The Congo part was interesting and enticing after Congo i believed it lost some interest and intrigue. I loved the narration,and the personalities portrayed. Plus it was a great learning tool about the Congo and the politics of which I knew nothing about.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Overall

    I found this book irritating, the author presents a wingeing demeanor which I found annoying. Definitely gives a great look into the lives of Afganistanie people and the history of the country. But I can't quite understand why others rave about this book.

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Overall

    What a wonderful and refreshing view of what is actually achievable in this life. I am a genuinely upbeat person who expects and receives the best life has to offer - this audible takes my optimism and up beat nature and enthusiam to dizzy heights. It is anchored in a lovely spiritual and dare I say biblical underpinning. On first listen I was a little critical of the cheesy Americanisms of some of the speakers (apologies to Americans). My advice is - "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water" - stay open to and listen to the message. So good to hear an Australian woman breaking through with such a strong and revolutary message. Thank you Rhonda for reinterating a message I received at age 21 and forgot. This audible came along and reminded me with passion that I can have and deserve to have what I desire.
