I certainly prefer to have a book read to me rather than reading it myself.
I would compare it with "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer.Another expose into the FLDS. Both books deal with the excess of this cult and its complete power over its congregation.
I thought his narration of the book was thoughtful, and hit the right tone for this subject matter.
Where do you start, these FLDS people have violated every convention of civilised society.Animal cruelty, incest, slavery, child abuse, rape, etc.
The FLDS is an insidious organisation that uses religion as a tool of manipulation for self profit. I saw nothing in this group that in anyway inspires hope in their congregation.Legislators have to have resolve to put an end to this disgusting group.In the 21st century while we are busy liberating foreign nations, our very own citizens live under a pseudo religious tyranny.
Loved this book, it's a definite one session listen from start to finish .
Can't wait to see what Martin Scorsese does with the book.
This is a fascinating account of a critical and nation defining moment in American History.
The abolition of slavery. This book details the lives of the men and women who played such a prominent role in this period. This is no dry academic look at history, Goodwin makes the period and the players come alive to make this a real page turner. Lincoln forged a team that liberated a nation from the contagion of slavery. He truly deserves his place as one of the most admired presidents of the United States.
After you listen to the book I recommend you see the film Lincoln and the extraordinary performance by Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln.
This is a great book, made perfect by the narration of John C Reilly.
The best narration of an audible book I have ever listened to.
This book is a stunning example of how power corrupts so completely.
There is a fine line between sanity and normality.
I hope Mr Reilly graces us with more narrations in future.
Loved this book, thoroughly enjoyable ride into the highs and lows of making a film.
Richard E Grant is fabulous as the narrator as he takes us on his personal journey full of triumphs and disasters. I hope Audible adds his other book With Nails: The Film Diaries of Richard E. Grant to its library.
No one writes better in the vampire genre as does Anne Rice.
This is my third time working through the Vampire Chronicles, only this time I have
the luxury of listening to the books.
This is a sweeping tale through time eternal, conspiracies, betrayal, intrigue galore.
Its a shame no director has ever done justice to these books, they are so much better than
Twilight. These vampires do not want to date you, they want to bite you.
Imagine interviewing a vampire in the 21st century... and it has me hooked every time.
A well researched book that covers the life and times of Princess Diana.
The author keeps her objectivity and does not portray Diana as a saint or queen of hearts.
I don't know why I am not surprised to learn that behind the public façade they are really privileged, spoilt dreadful people. A very interesting listen.
I think we can stand to have another take on films that kill (The Ring).
An interesting thriller that will keep you listening to the end.
Gildart Jackson as the narrator goes a little over the top with some of his accents.
I enjoyed this much better than Gone Girl. Its a lot darker.
The book was not as good as I thought it would be.
My problem was I did not like the characters, therefore was not invested in their various outcomes.
I found the plot implausible.
The ending did not ring true to me. But otherwise not a bad way to pass an afternoon.
This book was really interesting, to experience the Madoff disaster from inside the Madoff family.
As compelling as their story is you still feel more sympathy for the victims of this horrendous fraud.
Very compassionate and informative look at Aids from Elton John.
From the emergence of this epidemic in the 80's when these poor souls were cast out and
ostracised, to how things stand today.
A lot of work still remains to be done to combat this decease.
Attitudes are still a problem to overcome especially in the lesser developed countries.
Elton John continues to support this cause through his Aids Foundation.
