    Award-winning science journalist and author Lynne McTaggart invites listeners to take part in the world's largest mind-over-matter experiment in The Intention Experiment. By thinking positively about life and consciousness, people can, in fact, change their lives.

    This may be a good study or something to follow, but it is not a good audible book.

  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 56 mins)

    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    Peter J. Maerz says: "Suffused my being..."
    "Extremely long and incredibly senseless"

    What did you like best about Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close? What did you like least?

    I wasted a lot of time waiting for the purpose of this book and the joke was on me, there was none.


    What could Jonathan Safran Foer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Plot, reason for the story, meaning? It was a rambling narration. The characters were interesting, but they did nothing and went no where.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    I liked Mr Black, but then he just disappeared. He was old, did he die, did he go live on the empire state building? It was frustrating.


    Was Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close worth the listening time?

    No, it was not. I really hate investing the time to listen to a book all the way through to find out I have been had. It was an excercise in futility because it was just words. Since they made this book a movie, I thought it would have been better.
