    Evidence of the Afterlife shares the firsthand accounts of people who have died and lived to tell about it. Through their work at the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, radiation oncologist Jeffrey Long and his wife, Jody, have gathered thousands of accounts of near-death experiences (NDEs) from all over the world.

    Story

    I was engrossed and interested in the book. Ant then I got to the part where he was discussing how patients under general anesthesia were recalling what the staff did during a code. About the 10th time he pronounced anesthesia "Anastasia" I had to click the off button and stop listening.

    Stubbornness has landed private eye V.I. Warshawski in big trouble at her Chicago office. With her grand old Loop building set to be razed, she's become a hold-out tenant amid frayed wiring and scary, empty corridors. Then she finds a homeless woman with three kids in the basement, and before she can rescue them, they disappear. Worst of all, she's been implicated in a murder after the body of Deirdre Messenger, a prominent lawyer's wife, turns up sprawled across her desk.

    Story

    The narration is done in a near monotone and she speaks much too quickly. I miss Susan Erickson. The story as always is socially conscious and intriguing.

    A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away, in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes - much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

    The story was suspenseful as always. The reading reminded me of a college lecture. Professional and perfunctory.

    Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye, is having a hard time getting over a gunshot wound from her last case-especially because she didn't see the shots coming. Out of work and second-guessing her abilities, she tries to get back in the saddle by helping her boyfriend Dutch with some of his FBI cases. And soon enough, her intuition returns-with a vengeance.

    I love this series! My only negative is the narator's rhythm of speaking and her continual pronunciation of cavalry as calvary. It is very distracting.

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    Story

    This is another memoir that would not have made the same impact if read by anyone but the author. I am not sure I would have liked the book as much if I had read it the traditional way! You can read about Carol doing her Tarzan yell or you can actually hear her do it. It is just not the same! I loved Carol growing up and still do. She is an American icon. I cannot express how much I loved this book!

    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Story

    I loved listening to this book. It would not have been the same if it were read by anyone but the author! No one would have done the voices the same or sang the songs we who were weaned on his stand up routine know so well. I love Steve and at one time knew his comedy routines by rote. I love him as an actor today. After listening to his book I understand the life of the aspiring comic and know exactly why he chose another course for his career. Love this book!

    Just as 200,000 fans are pouring into town for Race Week, a body is found in a barrel of asphalt next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The next day, a NASCAR crew member comes to Temperance Brennan’s office at the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner to share a devastating story. Twelve years earlier, Wayne Gamble’s sister, Cindi, then a high school senior and aspiring racer, disappeared along with her boyfriend, Cale Lovette. Lovette kept company with a group of right-wing extremists known as the Patriot Posse.
