    Overall

    I really loved this audio book and I think I enjoyed it better on audio than I would have the book itself. The Narrator made it come alive. The author rambles a lot, but that just makes it sound more real. When I got in the car to go to work every morning, it felt like I was going to have another conversation with a good friend. I hated to see this one end.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The main character was not likable. I really didn't care if he came out a winner or not. He was angry and a whiner. The narrator was good at portraying him however. But I was sorry I bothered with the book.

    Striking beauty comes at a price. Rahab paid it when at the age of 15 she was sold into prostitution by the one man she loved and trusted—her father. With her keen mind and careful planning she turned heartache into success, achieving independence while still young. And she vowed never again to trust a man. Any man. God had other plans. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walked Salmone, a prominent leader of Judah, held in high esteem by all Israel.

    What made the experience of listening to Pearl in the Sand the most enjoyable?

    A great listening experience. Growing up in Sunday School, I knew the story of Rahab, but this novel took her to a new level. The narrator was perfect with all the voices. Couldn't wait to get back to the story when I had to get on with other things.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Hearing Heartbeats to be better than the print version?

    This was an incredible listen. The narrator was perfect on all the voices. Loved the story and all the subtle nuances. There is really no way to explain how special this book is!

    Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt.
