    Story

    With his trademark wit, wisdom, and humor, best-selling author and lecturer Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains how we can evolve from the lowest level of consciousness (ego) to the highest (unity). Dr. Dyer starts out with a challenge from A Course in Miracles: "You don't have any problems; you only think you do." He goes on to illustrate how the mind can control both physical and emotional well-being, all one has to do is create healthy, positive molecules and move away from negative thoughts.

    Story

    This audio was sent to me by my sister, who I am forever grateful because due to the lessons of this audio, we were reunited after a long period of discord. This book teaches about reactions, forgiveness, "going for it", and provides a new way to think about yourself and other people in your life. I was entranced by Dr. Dyer and his words opened my eyes. I have listened to the audio several times and continue to get something different from it each time. Some of his talk will make you laugh, other parts will take you to a new depth within yourself.

    Dr. Dyer is the narrator. He is a good speaker, but because this is a live talk, some of the editing is evident.

  • Bless Me, Ultima

    As Tony follows his own path toward adulthood, he relies on the wisdom of Ultima, a magical healer, to forge his unique identity. With hundreds of thousands of copies in print, Bless Me, Ultima has been called the most widely read Mexican-American novel in the English language. Richly evocative, it has earned its place among the classics of modern literature, even drawing favorable comparisons to Herman Melville's legendary Moby Dick.

    Story

    I first saw the movie "Bless Me, Ultima" and was quite taken by the story. I knew that as good as the movie was, the book would be better. I was not disappointed. The book took the story much deeper into the lives of the characters and reveled so much more than the movie. Read or listen to it. You'll certainly enjoy this delightful story of a young man learning about himself, family, life, religion and spirituality.

    Story

    It took me a while to get all the cast of characters straight in my head, but once that was accomplished, I loved the book. The story was never boring and seemed to build and build as deception, fraud, greed, murder and revenge played out their parts. The ending was a nice surprise as I didn't see it coming. (love that)

  • Turn of Mind

    Told through the voice of a woman with a powerful intellect that is maddeningly slipping away, Turn of Mind is not only a suspenseful psychological thriller that pulses with intensity but also a brilliant portrayal of the fragility of consciousness and memory, and of a mind finally turning on itself.

    Story

    I found this to be a good read, but almost predictable in the end. Being in the world of a person with Alzheimer's disease is new experience, one that I could only imagine. Sure, I have known people with Alzheimer's, but that was an external experience. This book brings you into the disease process and adds a little mystery to the story, too.

    The narration by Jean Reed Bahle was very good.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Story

    I don't believe any fiction book, even coming from the most creative mind, can top this true account of mens lives and what they endured in Japanese prison camps. This book is about survival and determination, especially of the main character. There are many lessons for all of us within these pages. I believe I experienced every emotion known to man as I listened to this book, and it left me with a deep respect for the men and women of our armed forces for the risks they take defending our freedoms and gave me a renewed sense of pride in our country. This book is a must read for everyone.

    The narration by Mr. Hermann is quite good. His voice is deep and clear and was read at an even pace.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This audiobook is a keeper. Entertaining, funny, sad, and full of life, love and hatred. It has everything. I would recommend this book to anyone.

  • A Prayer for Owen Meany

    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Alan says: "Outstanding"

    Overall

    I found this audiobook to be a most entertaining book. There wasn't a dull character, or a dull chapter, or a dull scene anywhere to be heard. I didn't want it to end. I laughed and cried and managed to feel every emotion in between. High marks for the narrator, too. He was terrific.
