    What made the experience of listening to His Needs, Her Needs the most enjoyable?

    The author was very clear, focusing on one topic at a time, telling lots of stories to make it interesting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of His Needs, Her Needs?

    I thought the idea of a love bank was great.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes where you see had the person put the same effort in their own marriage, as they did with someone else, things could have gone well.


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

    Not really, but it really was very thoughtful and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    Learned a lot.

    Story

    This is an incredible series! I didn't listen to this book first I started with The Slaver Wars: Alien Contact: The Slaver Wars Book Two (The Slaver Wars Book One) (Volume 1).

    It was absolutely amazing! Looks of action, epic battles scenes, and just wow! Excellent story, don't want to give too many spoilers,but very exciting. After hearing and listening to that, I then listened to this one, which is a slower pace but provides much of the now what? After you hear Alien Contact.

    Personally, I think you should start with Alien Contact, before listening to this, or it won't be as powerful!

    Great series! Really good voice acting too!

    Aerospace tycoon Gordon Elliot Lee cannot stand idly by while a mysterious alien presence from Delta Pavonis bears down upon mankind's only home. Shut out from NASA and military support, Gordon is forced to go it alone, to sow the seeds for an entirely new sort of planetary defense: a space-based naval force.

    Story

    Great story about a wealthy visionary who sees an upcoming alien threat years before the government. He assembles a great team to develop technology to confront an alien warship. Solid believable tech. Love how the story evolves over the years.

    You can tell how the author's personal military life gave this a great realistic feel.

    Thought the voices here sounded very good as well!

    Overall a rare find!

    Before Desirmor came and broke the peace of the Alexidus monarchy with his army of dark beasts, Princess Harmony Alexidus spoke a prophecy of his rise and fall. He would destroy the warriors of the Harven Mountains. He would make the princess his eternally unwilling bride. Then he would wrap the world in a veil of darkness so tight, the people would forget that light ever existed.

    Love audiobooks like this for long boring drives in the summer! Great story about a young guy who was hidden away because of his his hidden ability. Come to think of it,almost like Luck Skywalker was hidden away.

    Great adventure, imagination and narration.

    I'll probably listen to this one again later on!

    Hank is a thug. He knows he's a thug. He has no problem with that realization. In his view the galaxy has given him a gift: a mutation that allows him to withstand great deals of physical trauma. He puts his abilities to the best use possible and that isn't by being a scientist. Besides, the space station Belvaille doesn't need scientists. It is not, generally, a thinking person's locale. It is the remotest habitation in the entire Colmarian Confederation. There is literally no reason to be there.

    Zeke is a homeless guy with an exotic metal plate in his head, living rough in a backstreet. Zirkos is an alien who needs the plate to rebuild his ship's AI. Zirkos should just take the plate and go, but instead finds a way of achieving his own ends without harming Zeke. His actions kickstart a chain of events that will dramatically change the course of Earth's future. The Nubl are an artificial space-faring race with a 'hive' intellect who abhor biological sentience. They will eradicate humanity with extreme prejudice.

    Even though it was over 10 years ago, I still remember it like it was yesterday. I had no idea how I had gotten there - standing in my living room, the house packed in boxes, unsigned divorce papers in my hand. I remember not being able to look at the pictures of my kids with their beaming, playful, innocent smiles. It killed me inside to feel the sheer pain of loss as it finally hit me that I had reached the end of my marriage. After a year of hard work on both sides, my wife and I found restoration and renewal and we fell in love even more deeply.

    This is a great resource for anyone wanting to learning how to create a stronger marriage. It covers things like why men and women are so different, how to handle conflict etc. I thought it was great how it explained how many couples drift apart after marriage, and then gave practical steps to get closer. I find myself using what I've learned here often.

    Jake Taylor was a New Hampshire farm boy who wanted nothing more than to marry his girlfriend, work on the farm, and maybe one day write a great novel. But mankind was fighting the alien Tegeri and their bio-mechanical cyborg soldiers, and UN Central needed men…men to go to war on hostile worlds far from home. Jake wasn't given a choice, not a real one. He found himself torn from home and family, conscripted for life and shipped to the planet Erastus to take his place in the battle lines, never to return.

    Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America. Those two attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.
