Rob Inglis does a great job having different voices for each character. He really helps bring the book to life. Not to mention, the songs in the LOTR series are sung with a melody and he correctly pronounces the Elven language. My favorite character voice is Treebeard! :)
Yes, this book made me laugh and cry.
I don't want to give too much away but I liked the part where Allison talks about visualizing a deceased loved one that you trust holding a basket with a smile on their face. You are to put any and all problems in the basket because they will and want to help. This helps us to let go of the problem and stop agonizing over it. She even described putting a whole person she was having a difficult time with in the infinite basket her deceased father was holding. She also talks about visualizing a white or green light in your heart to help heal emotional wounds too.
There are too many good stories but I liked hearing about the relationship between Allison and her father throughout the book.
I like her spunky red-headed attitude and how she described that when she comes back even if she dies with gray hair she will most likely show herself with red hair because that is a big part of who she is.
There were so many good parts! The story of the son who died young and his mother who was having a difficult time with his passing was very moving.
Allison Dubois and her family are a blessing to the world. I'm sure it is not easy to have your family and life depicted on television and live in the public eye but I know there are many people who have benefited from the knowledge Allison shares. The fairly accurate depiction of the loving relationship between Allison and her husband, Joe, on the show Medium and mentioned in this book is also a great example to others. :)
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to everyone. :) I would also recommend books from several of the people Gladwell mentions (i.e. - Gottman and Ekman).
