    Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair. Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded.

    What a great read! After purchasing the audio book, I decided to also order the physical book from Amazon. I would recommend either (or both). The performance, by the author himself, is smooth and pleasant to listen to. You get more of a sense of his personality from listening to him. I wanted the physical book to be able to highlight and make reference to some of the excellent examples and information he gives in the early chapters.

    Deconverted is an excellent blend of reason, historical and scientific facts, information, humor, and personal recollections. Great book for anyone, but especially "new" atheists, agnostics, humanists, and free thinkers. I especially love that Seth Andrews is such a positive, fair, and open-minded atheist spokesperson. Thank you, Seth, for being a voice for so many of us.

    England, 1959: Laurel Nicolson is 16 years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.

    Story

    I simply adored this novel! The narration is excellent and pleasant to listen to. The story itself is engaging and beautiful. It deals with the secrets we keep and how they permeate our lives and the lives of those around us, whether we realize it or not. This book kept me hanging on the entire time. It is quite long, but I was never bored at all and had trouble putting it down to get my work done. I wanted to know what was happening now, what happened in the past, and what secrets were shaping these relate-able characters. Of the Kate Morton books I've read, this is by FAR my favorite!

    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    Story

    After reading the other two books in this trilogy, I waited rather impatiently for this final book to come out. The narration of this series is EXCELLENT. She does an amazing job of giving a unique voice to each of the important characters. The story is gripping, and will leave you wanting more every time you have to turn it off for a bit and get on with life. I found myself daydreaming about the characters and trying to imagine what would happen next.

    The only reason I'm not giving it a full five stars is the ending. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, but it left me wanting and a bit frustrated.. I realize this was done for a reason (as explained on the author's Facebook page), but it just didn't sit well with me. I will say, however, that this is a somewhat minor issue since the overall story, character development, and dystopian imagery is engaging and well-written.

    It looks as if they are planning to make a television show from this series. Not sure how I feel about that, but you never know!

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Story

    Though this novel falls under the YA genre, and I am slightly past my "young adult" years, this book really spoke to me. It was the first I had read by John Green, and immediately after finishing The Fault In Our Stars, I tracked down every other book by the author I could get my hands on. All are good, but this is the best!

    The characters, especially Hazel and Augustus, stick with you long after the story ends. Various quotes bounced around in my head for weeks. But best of all, this book made me FEEL. Really feel things that I haven't for years. Feelings that precious few other novels, plays, or films have been able to evoke.

    I laughed out loud, I cried (quite a bit), I held my breath, I mused... And I've re-read it over again.
