    Story
    (443)

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Mark says: "A Brilliant Personal Journey of Discovery"
    "She could have been telling my own story!"
    Overall

    I absolutely loved this audio book! Julia Sweeny does such a wonderful job of explaining a very personal, sometimes painful soul-searching journey into her spiritual beliefs. I loved it because it also mirrored my own journey and took me to the same place in almost the exact same way. She tells her story in a humorous, but very intelligent manner that is very enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone who has ever grappled with the question, "What if there is no god?"

    Story

    It's hard to find work as a doctor when using your real name will get you killed. So hard that when a reclusive billionaire offers Dr. Peter Brown, aka Pietro Brnwa, a job accompanying a sexy but self-destructive paleontologist on the world's worst field assignment, Brown has no real choice but to say yes. Even if it means that an army of murderers, mobsters, and international drug dealers-not to mention the occasional lake monster-are about to have a serious Pietro Brnwa problem.

    Edward says: "Disappointing."
    "Zippy dialogue"

    What did you like best about this story?

    The dialogue is humorous and the plot moves along quickly. I like the snarky tone.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like Josh Bazell's voice. Very entertaining!

  • The Garden of Last Days: A Novel

    Story
    (57)

    Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the listener by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus' #1 bestseller, House of Sand and Fog, and has an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.

    Suzn F says: "Andre Dubus III Does It Again"
    "I want those hours of my life back!"
    Overall

    This book moved waaaaay too slow, nothing happened and I kept waiting for a plot to start. Don't bother.

    Story
    (2192)

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Joseph says: "Amazing, powerful book about America."
    "Too weird"
    Overall

    I was not familiar with the author but decided to listen to the audiobook because of Audible's recommendation. I did not like it at all and had to work way too hard to try to get into it. I didn't finish (life's too short) and would not recommend this audiobook.
