    This fresh and original work illuminates such key principles as karma (what we do does matter), rebirth (every moment is an opportunity to start afresh), letting go (simplifying our lives by clarifying our hearts and minds), as well as conscious living and dying, and Dzogchen, the ultimate, mystical teaching of Tibet.

    Story

    Lama Surya Das helps American listeners (readers) to truly identify with the predominantly Eastern traditions of Buddhism. Although his accent gets distracting (the author/narrator is from Long Island, FYI), he lets it be known that an American/Westerner, with American struggles, American strengths, and the daily life of an American is completely compatible with Buddha. For the most part I absolutely loved it. I went back several times to re-listen and write things down.

    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    If you're looking for something entertaining but with great breadth, this is your book. I found the narrator to be spectacular and obviously, Victor Hugo's writing is superb. Its a long listen, but worth every minute.

    Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

    Jason says: "An incredible children's series"
    "Great way to start the series."

    Although the books were published in a different order, The Magician's Nephew is an excellent way to start the Chronicles of Narnia. It gives you the story of the creation of Narnia and the origin of the wardrobe in beautiful, allegorical detail.
