    Story
    (609)

    In 2009, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room strapped to a bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records - from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory - reported psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four-year-old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter

    Story

    This story is great. I have an auto immune disease that attacks skin and muscle, it came on suddenly when I was 31. I was ill for 2 1/2 years before I found a drug that put me into remission. I've received the IVIG therapy that this lady did. It was interesting for me because I could relate with that aspect of her story but also because I am a nurse and I love learning about illnesses that I have never heard of. I would recommend to a friend.

    Story

    To say that Augusten Burroughs has lived an unusual life is an understatement. From having no formal education past third grade and being raised by his mother’s psychiatrist in the seventies to enjoying one of the most successful advertising careers of the eighties to experiencing a spectacular downfall and rehab stint in the nineties to having a number one bestselling writing career in the new millennium, Burroughs has faced humiliation, transformation and everything in between.

    Story

    I love Augusten Burroughs. He is extremely insightful, but then again, how could he not be? Those who have been through trials and tribulations are more interesting people, have more insight and wisdom. I found it to be thought provoking.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Story

    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!"
    "Absolutely one of the best I've heard..."

    Story

    This is a remarkable story that will strike your soul. I usually am hesitant of any books longer than 8 or 9 hours, but I kept wanting more of this one. It held my interest completely and I looked forward to my 35 minute commute to work. It also gave me a greater understanding and respect for my father who served in the Vietnam war. My grandfathers brother, still to this day, will not speak about his experience in WWII. It is too painful for him. I have a greater respect for him as well.

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "Good reading"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this story. I sometimes lose interest quickly but the story line kept me listening. I found myself looking forward to driving so that I could listen on my way. Worth the credit.

  • For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend

    Story

    Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we differ. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings, including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love.

    L. Adams says: "needs photos"
    "If you are a dog love, it's a must listen!"
    Overall

    I love this book, I didn't want it to end. It offers valuable information on communication and how loving dogs can alter certain hormones and neurotransmitters that enable us to feel pleasure and bond with them. I feel bad for people who don't connect with animals, especially dogs, since their contribution in our lives can be absolutely priceless.

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. The details were extensive but amazingly didn't seem to be too much but instead gave an intimate knowing of the characters and what they were feeling and going through.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Story
    (3174)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "Awesome..."
    Overall

    Loved this story...great story of human willingness not to give up, even among the greatest of odds. I believe that most will enjoy this book, but perhaps especially dog lovers.

    Anna Bloom is depressed - so depressed that her parents have committed her to a mental hospital with a bunch of other messed-up teens. Here she meets a roommate with a secret (and a plastic baby), a doctor who focuses way too much on her weight, and a cute, shy boy who just might like her. But wait! Being trapped in a loony bin isn't supposed to be about making friends, losing weight, and having a crush, is it?

    Colleen says: "Wonderful!"
    "ugh...."
    Overall

    I couldn't wait until this was over....I suppose if you are a teenager, this story may be of interest, but if not, don't waste your time.

    Worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger, and feelings of condemnation: all these are attacks on the mind. If you suffer from negative thoughts, take heart! Joyce Meyer has helped millions win these all-important battles, and she can help you too. This beloved author and minister shows you how to deal with thousands of thoughts you have every day and focus your mind to think the way God thinks.

    Gregory says: "Excellent content and message-average narrator"
    "Bible"
    Overall

    I am very much not a religious person, I prefer to listen to spiritual books such as Eckhart Tolle or Wayne Dyer. Although this book does have a good message, I was quite turned off by the bible quotations that seemed to come along literally every minute. But, like I said, the overall message was good.

    From renowned scientist and animal welfare advocate Temple Grandin, this groundbreaking book is a clarion call to awareness of the inner lives of humankind's far-too-often mistreated and neglected companions. Based on research spanning over 30 years, these stunning insights into the very real emotions and thoughts of animals are sure to be a source of fascination and inspiration.

    Debra says: "Interesting in general, but repetitive"
    "not what I expected"
    Overall

    Not exactly what I expected, filled with statistics which aren't too interesting.
