    What would you do if you met someone you thought just might be one of Jesus' original disciples still living in the 21st century? That's Jake's dilemma as he meets a man who talks of Jesus as if he had known him, and whose way of living challenges everything Jake had previously known. So You Don't Want to Go To Church Anymore is Jake's compelling journal that chronicles 13 conversations with his newfound friend over a four-year period and how those exchanges turn Jake's world upside-down.

    This is truly wonderful and insightful. Specially if the reader/listener is interested in walking with God and not so interested in fixing systems. Answers excellent questions with direction into God and not into the 'fix'. I found it very good, and have recommended it and given it as gifts. I thank God and the authors for a timely sound.

    At once a deeply personal memoir and an examination of a violent and stratified country, The House at Sugar Beach tells of tragedy, forgiveness, and transcendence with unflinching honesty and a survivor's gentle humor. And at its heart, it is a story of Helene Cooper's long voyage home.

    Gregory Han says: "Reader made this book for me."
    "Thankful!"
    Overall

    I'm thankful Helene and members of her family are here to share their story. I am thankful that Eunice lives, with love surrounding her. I'm thankful Helene truly is an American story come in a strangely wonderful circle of hope escaping or triumphing through pain. I'm thankful to discover Liberia, our corporate homeland. Thank you, Helene for sharing your memoir with us.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    One of my very favorite books. Audio, print, '84 movie. Most Excellent.

    Burned-out Hollywood screenwriter Bo Aikens is fed up with life in Los Angeles. He heads out of the hustle and bustle of the big city and arrives in picturesque Black River in Northern California, seeking relaxation and artistic inspiration. In small, idyllic Black River nearly everyone is happy, contented, and welcoming of strangers. But despite the beautiful setting, Bo begins to feel unsettled after several disturbing incidents.

    Lance says: "Brick + Koontz=Fantastic!"
    "Liked it"
    Overall

    I really like Dean Koontz's writing. This one was not as rich as I'm use to. I'm heading back to ODD country.

    In this revolutionary look at the brain, best-selling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed.

    Introducing principles we can all use, as well as a riveting collection of case histories, The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history."

    "A bit Thick for my Brain"
    Overall

    Hey, but I actually got some encouragement from this volume and will continue to ingest as much as I can. Earlier portions were more palatable for me. As I continued into mid-chapters it began to get a little 'speaking-in-tongues' for me to grasp. I will keep trying because my brain is plastic!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you ever thought history was boring, David McCullough’s performance of his fascinating book will change your mind. In this stirring audiobook, McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence, when the whole American cause was riding on their success.

    Mark says: "Front Seat on History"
    "LOVE hearing Mr. McCullough"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this volume but not as much as John Adams. Not that 1776 was ill treated, but that John Adams has so much more, more, more of everything. I listened to John Adams and had to get the book and am now reading it. The audio of 1776 will be enough. But I sure enjoy listening to David McCullough and will listen again.

    The prolific, perennially best selling author recounts his early life and writing struggles, gives advice on the crucial aspects of the writing art, and talks about his much-publicized, near-fatal accident.

    Bill says: "Excellent!"
    "Enjoy hearing Mr. King"
    Overall

    I am a fan of Stephen King, so I enjoy hearing his voice for this work. I'm not a great student of writing books, but I do write. As writing books go, I like the earlier portions relating to life and experience but as it gets more or less technical, I don't know that I could rate it beyond average. But then, I've not read any I loved yet.

    Do you find the Bible hard to read? Do your thoughts wander as you try to make your way through a Bible reading program? If so then discover the joy of listening to the Bible. Now you can experience the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, wherever you are...with understanding you never thought possible.

    "Tonality Excess for me"
    Overall

    It is the NIV but the reader is a bit distracting after a while. It is difficult enough trying to not add my own tone of voice to Scripture, I don't need it done for me. I'll keep looking.

    I enjoyed this volume on several levels. The suspense and character development, but also as an artist. This was an intensly wonderful listen! Will listen again.

    McCullough's John Adams has the sweep and vitality of a great novel. This is history on a grand scale, an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, it is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

    Davis says: "An outstanding biography"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    I don't consider myself a true history buff, but this work has awakened this in me. I understand more how a book wins the Pulitzer! I love the audio, and I also bought the book!
