    Bill Bryson was born in the middle of the American century, 1951, in the middle of the United States, Des Moines, Iowa, in the middle of the largest generation in American history, the baby boomers. As one of the best and funniest writers alive, his is perfectly positioned to mine his memories of a totally all-American childhood for 24-carat memoir gold. Like millions of his generational peers, Bill Bryson grew up with a rich fantasy life as a superhero.

    Ten years after the publication of Wicked, beloved novelist Gregory Maguire returns at last to the land of Oz. There he introduces us to Liir, an adolescent boy last seen hiding in the shadows of the castle after Dorothy did in the Witch. Bruised, comatose, and left for dead in a gully, Liir is shattered in spirit as well as in form. But he is tended at the Cloister of Saint Glinda by the silent novice called Candle, who wills him back to life with her musical gifts.

    Overall

    Beware. After listening for 7 hours , I realized nothing has happened and started hoping the main character would stop his self loathing , explore his possible "witch" powers and something interesting would happen. It didn't

    To Neil Rucker, seven months, one week, and a day is too long to wait in between dates. But life as a Spanish teacher to missionaries in Ecuador affords little opportunity for romance.

    Connie says: "If I had a teen..."
    "be warned"
    Overall

    the author is a Christian Missionary , in search of a girl
    Theres alot of "church" talk and thanking the Lord.
    Theres only so much of that I can take , in fact 1 hr 19 mins and I clicked off

    Grammy Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album
    Mirabelle, the "shopgirl" behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus, is slightly lost, off-kilter, and shy. But there's something about Mirabelle. Steve Martin reads this charming novella. Hear an interview with the author and browse more Martin.

    Julie Rosenthal says: "Loved it"
    "hollywood?"
    Overall

    It's been a month since I listened to this book and in that time what cream has risen has spoiled.
    My lasting impression is I cared for none of the characters who's lives seem to revolve around sex and confussion. Is this life in Hollywood?
    A tale of urban waste.
    Listen if you wish, he does read it well.

    Have you ever felt that your life was guided by larger forces? Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes. Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract".

    Alan says: "A truely awesome value, you NEED this book."
    "listen to me"
    Overall

    Just what the world needs, another person to stand up and say " I have the answers".
    Perhaps there is great wisdom in what she offers , I dont know. After 2 hours I heard , " listen to me" , I turned it off.

    This runaway New York Times best seller is a book to savor and treasure. Author Tony Hendra, a National Lampoon and Spy magazine veteran and one of the world's greatest satirists, delivers a beautifully written, humorous, and profoundly moving memoir reminiscent of Tuesdays with Morrie.

    Alco says: "Rivetting Read"
    "wonderful"
    Overall

    the first review I have been compelled to write and done through tears upon finishing this book. If only I had a father Joe. A must to hear, read with love about a man of love
