I don't think it's better, just more convenient at this time. Although, I'm not great at medical/science jargon and having someone that can pronouce the words better than I could, helps a lot.
I know there are other books about wheat out there, but this is the only one I've read. Based on that, I can't do a comparison.
This isn't a story book. This is information regarding health and what wheat is doing to it. It also helps you to discover the changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle that will help you.
No. There aren't too many books, fact or fiction, that fall into that category.
I found this book quite informative and enlightening. I'm currently making the switch to a wheat and gluten-free lifestyle. I hope when people read or listen to this book, they will do so with an open mind. It's not easy to throw away what we have been taught to believe is good for us. However, this book explains that the health experts have basically been encouraging us to
The enthusiam and perspective that Mr. Smith rights with.
I loved this book. The author not only believes what he has written, but lives it each day. This book will get you fired up to do, rather than to just dream. I have listened to it a couple of times now. I also purchased the e-book so that I can read it and highlight things that stand out and will help me in planning and accomplishing the next 19,816 days of my life.
Listening to Davy Jones talking about his family.
Reading a biography is fine, but when the biographer gets to read his own life it gives a little added extra. The nuances of voice when recalling certain events and memories, gives you an idea of what it was like to live through it. He was a real entertainer and he loved the show. You could tell by listening to him that it was the show that he loved best.
When Davy Jones speaks of his mother's death. You can tell it affected him deeply.
I had the pleasure of seeing one of the Monkee Reunion shows at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel back in 1986. It was a dream come true for me because I "fell in love" with Davy Jones when I was nine years old and have had a life long crush ever since. Being able to hear him read his biography made it "come alive." This book may not be for everyone, but if you were a Monkee's fan, like me, you will enjoy Davy's perspective of life on that run away train.
This was well written, well researched and documented book. I liked the fact that there was some scientific evidence to back up what was written. After reading it, I do believe this case is indeed closed.
If you have ever read any books, watched any movies and/or television biopics, and/or watched any documentaries on Jack the Ripper, you will find this a fascinating listen. Ms Cornwell presents her research and builds a case, both circumstantial and forensic, against Walter Richard Sickert, a famous artist and painter of the day. I do believe this is one of the great mysteries solved. I wonder if Ms Cornwell would turn her attentions to another great unsolved mystery: The Black Dahlia.
A wonderful who done it in the style of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple. Only our heroine is younger, titled, and penniless. Or should I say shilling-less. Smart, sophisticated, and determined is our Lady Georgie. She has some brains to boot and sets about helping the police figure out who is behind all the "accidents" that have been happening in the quiet little village.
I don't think it kept me on the edge of my seat, but it kept me intrigued. The characters are engaging and the narrator's voice distinctions help keep everyone of them straight.
No. I haven't, but I am currently listening to the first one: Her Royal Spyness.
This is a fun listen, especially if you are an Agatha Christie fan. Give it a go. I think you will be delighted with the results.
Yes. It's a good story. A cautionary tale of the price that is paid for owning that "must have" item. It is a look into the human psyche.
Not on the edge of my seat, but it was engrossing just the same.
I've heard a few of his stories as read by Stephen King. While he is not the world's greatest actor, he is a very good narrator. And (most of the time) I enjoy listening to an author read his or her works. What I most enjoyed is that he can do a bonafide Maine accent (since he is from Maine) when it is called for. Since this story takes place in Castle Rock, Maine, the accent is called for. You also get a sense of wicked glee in his reading. I think he enjoys narrating almost as much as he enjoys the writing.
I'd like to take Polly Chalmers and Alan Pangborn out to dinner. They are the two most forthright charactors in the book. Even though Polly falls under the spell of Mr. Gaunt, she has an inner struggle with her common sense "Yankee" self and comes out better than most. Alan has his own struggles not related to a needful thing until the very end. However, he realizes the false note in the video, helping to break the spell that Mr. Gaunt has cast over the entire town. It would be interesting to know their take on why owning a needful thing can be so powerful as to enduce people to play "tricks" on their neighbors.
It's a very good book. Well written and thought provoking, even as it blooms into horror. What needful thing would you; would I be willing to pay for with a handful of change and a prank that no one would associate with us? Food for thought, that.
I never read the print version so I couldn't say
I enjoyed it because you could tell the narrator was the same age as the protagonist. It was refreshing getting the perspective of the young man read by a young man.
I think it's when Sam (Samantha) kisses Charlie and tells him that she wants him to be kissed the first time by someone that cares about him. In light of the fact that Charlie is in love with Sam, it is bittersweet and beautiful.
Charlie. He's the main charactor and he goes through some amazing, terrifying, and ultimately enlightening experiences. And he tells of these experiences with such straightforward honesty.
I like that it is written in letter form and that Charlie always signs off the same way, "Love always, Charlie." I love the honesty of this charactor and all the charactors. It's a good listen.
Sure. I enjoyed listening to Sissy Spacek reading the book; especially since she played Carrie to perfection on the big screen.
I read this book years ago. It seems Mr King has filled out the gauntness of the book in the intervening years. I'm glad. It was a good story and now a better one.
See my comment above. And she is a really good actress.
Glad I purchased it.
I had a picture in my mind of what Odd Thomas would look and sound like. David Aaron Baker sounds like my imagined Odd Thomas.
I enjoyed the interaction between Odd and Stormie.
It is a good series and I have enjoyed reading them. I am sure I will enjoy listening to them as well.
I have read Dear Fatty and enjoyed both. The advantage of the audible version is being able to continue doing whatever you need to vs. sitting down and reading.
Ms. French tells of a time when she was about 14 or 15 and was going to big party. A young boy, Mark, was going to be there and she had purchased a special outfit for the occassion hoping to catch his eye. Her father wanted to talk to her before she left (and she wanted to ask him if she could stay out later). What followed was so beautiful. The things he said to his daughter should be written down and handed to every father to be said to their daughters. What Ms French's dad gave her that night was such a precious gift. He let her know that she was valued and loved beyond measure. What a gift.
She sounds a bit like Dawn French, so it's not hard to imagine Ms. French reading it herself.
This book made me laugh and cry. Sometimes at the same time.
This book is well worth a listen. Especially if you are a fan of French & Saunders, The Vicar of Dilby, and Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban.
I read these stories a long time ago. I thoroughly enjoyed them. Dolon's Cadillac was a favorite back then and I still like it. I don't remember Crouch End in the original book, but I liked it (as read by Tim Curry) as well. All the stories are good, these two just really stand out for me.
