    At the center of A Blessing on the Moon is Chaim Skibelski. Death is merely the beginning of Chaim’s troubles. In the opening pages, he is shot along with the other Jews of his small Polish village. But instead of resting peacefully in the World to Come, Chaim, for reasons unclear to him, is left to wander the earth, accompanied by his rabbi, who has taken the form of a talking crow. Chaim’s afterlife journey is filled with extraordinary encounters whose consequences are far greater than he realizes.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had to force myself to finish, the first third was so hideous. Not a complete waste of time, but close to it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Skibell again?

    Probably not...This was definitely not my cup of tea.


    Have you listened to any of Allen Lewis Rickman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but the performer was excellent.


    Could you see Blessing on the Moon being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I wouldn't go see it; the imagery was hideous.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not recommend this to Jews or anybody except one who likes the most greusome imagery of corpses doing the unnatural.

    The story that became a global sensation: Sophie, the Australian cattle dog who was lost at sea and swam six miles through shark-infested waters to a remote island where she survived in the wild for five months.... It was just another day in paradise as Jan and Dave Griffith, along with their blue cattle dog, Sophie, motored out of Mackay Marina for a gorgeous weekend at sea. But when the sky suddenly darkened and the waves turned fierce, the unthinkable happened: Sophie disappeared overboard.

    The amazing dog, of course!

    Any additional comments?

    This was a bit drawn out; an approximately 90-min. movie would tell you all you need to know.
