  • The Female Brain

    Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can't remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages. Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think and what they value.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She talked to us in her Mommy voice. Ugh.


    Any additional comments?

    This book only describes women that are heterosexual and middle to upper-middle class conforming to a patriarchal society.

    Apparently Ms. Brizendine doesn't understand that Lesbians exist or that one in five American women either choose to not have children or cannot therefore making them age WITHOUT the "Mommy Brain" as the author so annoyingly calls it. What about them? What about women who can't afford to retire and live at a poorer socio-economic status and have legitimately greater stress than women who can't handle their husbands moping around the house after they retire?
    At the end of the book she briefly talks about women in Africa but all her examples are still about aging mothers.

    This book started off so good but it only covered one type of person in the female population. It's a shame. There's a lot of great information in here, but only about one type of woman. Her narration made me feel like she was talking to a class of kindergarteners. Or like I was having a somewhat educated conversation at a Baby Shower.

  • We Are Their Heaven: Why the Dead Never Leave Us

    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.

    What did you like best about We Are Their Heaven? What did you like least?

    This book was less about the education of the reader on the Afterlife and more like a very long auditory Infomercial for the psychic talents of Ms. DuBois. I don't doubt that Ms. DuBois is a very talented Medium, but I need a little more substance in a book than what this has to offer. It doesn't really educate the reader on anything or really even answer the question "Why the dead Never Leave Us" other than that they love us and want to see us happy.

    The book goes like this: Story after story is narrated by another voice actor about a horrible tragedy that befell them. They then talk about how amazing Allison is and how their lives are better for meeting her. Then Allison narrates and recounts her meeting and side of that particular story with this person and their reading. Do that for several hours and you have this book.

    If you plan to learn anything and/ or already believe in that afterlife and the talent of mediums, steer clear of this book. If you want to hear about multiple tragedies and how accurate Ms. DuBois was/ is in deciphering them, then buy this book.


    What aspect of Allison DuBois’s performance would you have changed?

    Ms. Dubois reads this book in the most monotone voice possible. The other voice actors did a great job.


    Was We Are Their Heaven worth the listening time?

    No.
