    A Sister of the Dark captures Richard and takes him deep into the Old World, to the very heart of the Order, while his beloved Kahlan remains behind. Free because of Richard's sacrifice for her, but unwilling to abandon the cause of the Midlands, Kahlan violates not only prophecy but her last pledge to Richard and raises an army against the advancing horde of the Imperial Order.

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

    With the ending I wish that I had never read this book.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Terry Goodkind? Why or why not?

    I am not sure if I would chance reading another one of his books. The ending was anti-climatic leaving you with a feeling of being cheated. The story plot was well thought out but was written on what I would call a teen age level. The plot was mapped out so that this could have been a great book. Some of the character names were to close to being the same which made it confusing if you had a space of time in hearing this story.


    What about John Kenneth’s performance did you like?

    Thought he did a great job.


    Did Faith of the Fallen inspire you to do anything?

    Scream at my I-pod when it ended like it did.


    Any additional comments?

    I give movies and audio books the chance to redeem themselves. This one could have got a better feeling from me if it would have taken the same type of time to create an ending to match the rest of the story plot.

    In Whale Done!, Ken Blanchard shows how positive reinforcement and redirection can help increase productivity. These techniques are remarkably easy to master and can be applied equally well at home, allowing listeners to become better parents and more committed spouses and have happier personal lives.

    What did you love best about Whale Done!?

    How well it was read even though it is an educational book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The keys are here to help people build relationships to prosper at home and at work.


    What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

    Made it interesting to listen to an educational topic. Felt more like hearing a story instead of getting basics for building relationships.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That positive will over come negative and give you the results that you are seeking.


    Any additional comments?

    Pastors, teachers, people thinking of getting married, managers, and people with children should be required to read this book!

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Where does The Power of Habit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A top 10


    What other book might you compare The Power of Habit to and why?

    No other book has taken habits and broke them down with real research like this one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was more the thought then the scene of how your mind has the power to hold information that were part of a habit even when you are not aware of the information.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, I listen to books as I drive. Parts of this book I stopped and re-listened before moving on to the next chapter.

    That I could not figure it out. The twist just kept coming.

    Like the entire story as the plot flowed from start to end!

    I hated when the ride was over and it was clear from the ending that the story of life and traps are never over.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    You felt like you knew the characters by how they were presented.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Where does Locked On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rate this book in my top 25. I would have rated it higher but I cringe every time I hear a book like this take God's name in vain when there is no reason to do so to make their point!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot continues as you finally get more of a background on some of the characters that was missing in the movies.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The plot in itself was the best part of the book. In this day where the world is getting smaller but we are still impacted by other countries this brought this to focus on how important are intelligence community is for our protection.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listen as I drive and this keeps me on the edge of my seat as the miles pass behind me.

    Following the nuclear attack by Russia, Israel is cleaning up the bodies of dead enemy soldiers for 7 months and setting out on its 7 year plan - both per the prophecies in Ezekiel.
