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

    This book came recommended to me, I passed it onto my husband, and he says it is changing his life. It is read in a very hypnotic slow way, by an NLP practitioner, don't let that put you off. The concept is simple, but and almighty powerful.


    What other book might you compare Clarity to and why?

    Loving what is by Byron Katie

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Loved the first few books in this series, so I bought the rest all at once. Sadly they by this book there are just too many characters in too many places doing a whole lot of nothing. It really feels like he has run out or story and is just dragging along to fill the pages.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Jordan’s story?

    A great start to the series became too slow, too complicated, and too boring.


    What about Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ’s performance did you like?

    Great perfomers both


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Bored

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    At the center of Middlemarch is Dorothea Brooke, a thoughtful and idealistic young woman determined to make a difference with her life. Enamored of a man who she believes is setting this example, she traps herself into a loveless marriage. Her parallel is Tertius Lydgate, a young doctor from the city whose passionate ambition to spread the new science of medicine is complicated by his love for the wrong woman.
