    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.

    What about Julia Sweeney’s performance did you like?

    She is taking a not so funny Life experience, and turning it into a laughable thing.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no sorry...


    Any additional comments?

    I share some of this experience. If it is not one thing It is another, and could empathize..It seems when trouble comes it really multiplies!

    Combined sales of over 250,000 copies demonstrate the terrific impact Robert Lesslie's first three books have had on readers. In Angels on the Night Shift, the fourth book based on his 30 years' experience in the ER, Dr. Lesslie draws open the curtain on the lives, the dramas, even the loves hidden away behind hospital walls - events that, day and night, reveal nurses, doctors, patients, friends, even strangers to be "angels" in disguise.

    This a first time read... listen for this author.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes and I did!

    Pod, Homily, and Arrietty are a family of tiny people who live beneath the floor, behind the grandfather clock in the old rectory. They own nothing - everything they have is borrowed from the "human beans", who don't even know they exist.

    What did you love best about The Borrowers?

    Read all of these as a child, and still love them now. The tale is funny and joyful, a little bit scary and all the things needed for a great imagination!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ariel, so interested in what in "the world" is going on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first encounter with...the boy (but old lady was funny too with her meeting... Saw one or two? "drank a little too much " but your seeing so many...bring all the Madeira? up here."


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

    Have you ever sworn you left something "right there" and can't find it now? It could be you have Borrowers in your house!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the WHOLE set. How come you don't have the borrower's revenged?

    My children read them, and now I'm introducing them to the next generation.

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, not for me. I assumed wrongly in buying this.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julia Sweeney? Why or why not?

    I had bought two..I think they are miss represented. If I was looking for this type of thing It was OK. BUT I WAS NOT.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Funny, good performance.


    Do you think Letting Go of God needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It is not a book...and I bought her other when I purchased this one : (


    Any additional comments?

    I was looking for real answers. Seeking real help. So was extremely disappointed when I discovered it was a comedy routine. I had a very real need to search for answers to a REAL problem.

    If you could sum up A Dog's Purpose in three words, what would they be?

    He thinks this?


    What other book might you compare A Dog's Purpose to and why?

    Other books that come from a dogs view, "Racing in the Rain", "Marley and Me", "The story of Edgar Sawtelle"


    Any additional comments?

    I went into this with fear of having to face the dogs eventual death. why? I have lost one dog in the past 6 months an have another very old dog and surmised this would happen and probably feared it?? So I could not enjoy the book. It is not usually me so can't understand my reluctance.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    What made the experience of listening to The Shack the most enjoyable?

    Well written story with a very good reader, but an intriguing premise difficult to except at first read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Actually turned out to be a quite compelling story, once I could set my mind to accepting the main idea. With a steadfast belief, It was almost impossible for me to entertain the existence of the three unusual characters.


    What about Roger Mueller’s performance did you like?

    Easily shifted to believable tones and voice changes to fit each role. Enjoyed the reading!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I actually had to go back several times to re listen to the ideas being presented. In the beginning chapters. In doing so I heard much more and understood more of the thoughts and feelings of the main character, The father.
    I had to make myself read on, due to my inability to accept the story line. I am certainly glad I did. It was quite an amazing look into living with and through a life shattering experience.


    Any additional comments?

    I have discussed this book with several others... one, who like me made herself read on. Another who has yet to do so, I am waiting to hear her ideas, and if she picks it up again.

    I did enjoy this book, but..... the information given after the last chapter was extremely helpful. This information may be available on the bound book, but comes so late here, that I believe it was the cause of my initial struggle. It completely reset my mindset. If I had only known this information, I would, I believe, not have faced my initial feeling to stop reading.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Anne's House of Dreams to be better than the print version?

    For me this is a great way to relax and try to sleep.
    But It was a GOD send, when I shared it with a friend who was unable to read anymore. ... (she died of brain cancer and loved to read) For her, this was a tremendous help to fill the hours.. I am so very glad I found you!! It was a way to be helpful, when there is not allot to offer. Thank you for making available, a wonderful interesting and loving story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the Captain and his stories of the sea, and his extreme kindness.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The walks on the beach in the moonlight...true romantic ....and lover the sea !!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed out loud at some of Ann's high-jinks...but also cried when the truth came out about others lives and hardships.


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyed living a bit more in Anne's shoes!!
