    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"
    "Welcome to a different planet."

    Where does Beyond Belief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This audiobook was a very easy listen. The story of Jenna Miscavige is hardly a boring one. The book takes you deep into the secret world of Scientology as preached by its head nutter David Miscavige (Jenna's uncle).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Belief?

    The moment when you learn about what the highest people in Scientology truly believe. Truly shocking .... Sorry no spoilers here.


    What about Sandy Rustin’s performance did you like?

    She has a soft voice, easy to listen to. She makes you convinced that Jenna is telling you the story herself.


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

    Not quite, its very long. Its about 16 hour or so. But I probably listened to it about 2hours at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the price, or use a credit. You wont be disappointed.

    Story
    (449)

    Over the course of his 60 years, Christopher Hitchens has been a citizen of both the United States and the United Kingdom. He has been both a socialist opposed to the war in Vietnam and a supporter of the U.S. war against Islamic extremism in Iraq. He has been both a foreign correspondent in some of the world's most dangerous places and a legendary bon vivant with an unquenchable thirst for alcohol and literature.

    Laura says: "Truth, the whole truth and nothing but."
    "I miss the Hitch!"

    Story
    What did you love best about Hitch-22?

    It's a memoir, For years I have been reading his books and when you listen to this you can close your eyes and really imagine yourself sitting down and having a scotch with the man himself while he tells you the story of his life in only the way that he can.


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

    It's difficult to say because this is really the first memoir I have ever listened to.


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Hitchens – was your favorite?

    Himself, obviously.


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

    It provoked thoughts. It made me want to get off my behind and be more active in the things I find important about life.


    Any additional comments?

    Must listen for all Hitch fans!
