    The Return of the King is the towering climax to J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron. In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director.

    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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! :)


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

    Yes, this book made me laugh and cry.

    The inspiration for the hit television series Medium, Allison DuBois now brings listeners into her psychic experiences in We Are Their Heaven. Recalling her communication with spirits who have touched her over the years, she reveals that the dead are trying to reach their loved ones all the time, not because they're bound to us, but because we are their happiness, we are their heaven.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to We Are Their Heaven the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are too many good stories but I liked hearing about the relationship between Allison and her father throughout the book.


    What about Allison DuBois’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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. :)

  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

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

    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).
