I am an Afro American christian and I enjoy literature from Greo audio. I also like self help books and inspirational books and sometimes something funny.

    New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe continues the adventures of lifelong friends Annette Goode Davis and Rhoda O'Toole in this riveting novel.

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

    I felt this book was a great depiction of friendship through thick and thin and a reminder that even if you don't get catch in the act, adultery can have unanticipated negative consequences. It was a great story line as well as the voice and intonation drew me in. I could also relate with the weight issue and the desire to leave a secure job to do something she loved even though it required long hours.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of God Ain't Blind?

    When she walked in on the phone call where her lover was talking to his lover and saying that their relationship was a scam for money.


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

    She has a rich low voice and puts the emphasis in the most appropriate places. She also changes the voice for the characters in a way that helps to differentiate between them and give them unique personalities.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If I only knew then what I know now...


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy this author and the narrator.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was good and easy to read. It had awesome Christian values and I loved how it turned someone who didn't find them self to be nurturing into a good alternate mother.

    The feud between YaYa and Leah has ruined the lives of everyone around them. In The Prada Plan 4, the animosity is alive, and the resentments run deeper than ever. Indie has watched YaYa's past destroy the woman he once knew, and his patience has run thin. After being left at the altar, he is heartbroken and confused. His quests to save YaYa from herself have failed, and he finally decides it's time to let the love of his life go. Her thirst for blood is unquenchable, and like a black hole she sucks the life out of everything around her.

    Where does The Prada Plan 4 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the third one the best so far. The ending was good and had me on my toes waiting for the culmination but I didn't like the year absence so close to the end of the story. This story draws me in and keeps me routing for the main character despite her flaws. Now of course I will be waiting impatiently for the next book in the series.

    Environmental devastation and economic chaos have turned America into a land of horrifying depravity. Assault, theft, sexual abuse, slavery, and murder are commonplace. And a zealous, bigoted tyrant has won his way into the White House. Directly opposed is Lauren Olamina, founder of Earthseed - a new faith that teaches "God Is Change". Persecuted for "heathen" beliefs as much as for having a black female leader, Earthseed's followers face a life-and-death struggle to preserve their vision.

    Would you try another book from Octavia E. Butler and/or the narrators?

    The title is deceptive; the violence is deplorable; the book it too long and negative.


    Has Parable of the Talents turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes, I would shy away from books by this author.


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

    The readers and characters are excellent as with most Audible books.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There is lots of action and many people are into this type of storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps the abridged version would have kept my attention better. It is rare that I don't complete a book.

    Raised on a South Carolina plantation as the house pet of her white master's daughter, Kitty never made a decision for herself. Now, as a young adult, she must preserve her faith while making the biggest decision ever: stay with her master and go south to avoid the Yankees or run away tonight to the North with Grady, the field slave she has come to love.

    Karen says: "Intense"
    "Powerful story!"
    Overall

    I normally shy away from books about slavery because I feel they promote hatred of specific groups but I was drawn to this one because of the religious content. It was an excellent book. Every time it felt too graphic and painful to continue on, I was compelled to continue telling myself that emancipation was coming and this journey would lead there. It has opened my understanding to the real plight of slaves and the effects on family. Every African American should put this on their reading list.

    All in God's Time is a warm novel of a wonderful woman who is fulfilled in her professional life but, on a personal level, believes that some people are destined to be single and by the looks of things, that is God's plan for her. After taking some time off between traveling jobs, Meagan prays that God will send the next job soon. When He does, she feels it has to be a mistake. It's different...so different.

    This book held my attention for the entire novel. The story line was intriguing and characters were endearing. I recommend this as a enticing Christian novel.
