  • Leaving the Saints: How I Lost the Mormons and Found My Faith

    Leaving the Saints is an unforgettable memoir about one woman's spiritual quest and journey toward faith. As "Mormon royalty" within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Martha Beck was raised in a home frequented by the Church's high elders, known as the apostles, and her existence was framed by their strict code of conduct.

    Overall

    If I were a devout Mormon woman, I would be seething over this book. However, I am not a Mormon and still feel quite upset with the way this author takes her "dirty laundry" out for the whole world to read. She implies that the Mormon church is the one that made her father (supposedly) abuse her. I can't think of any religion that has a perfect history. This lady takes things too far. She is sarcastic and is constantly reminding the listener that she has a Ph.D., as though this legitimizes her claims. I feel sorry for her family. She does the craziest things (like chopping down trees in the middle of the night), while her husband and small children are neglected. If Mormon men were so horrible, why did her own Mormon husband put up with her antics? I wanted to listen to this book before visiting Utah to learn something about the "Saints." Instead of siding with her, I think I actually disagree with her. Who knew? Her 9O yr. old father shouldn't have had to put up with all her accusations at that age. It sounds almost evil of her. Her diatribe pleads with the listener that abuse victims should be open about their history, even if it took place decades ago. As the daughter of an abused mother, I wish she never had told me what happened to her in her youth. It never helped me, it only made me angry, and it didn't help my mom either. She grew more depressed in her older years by reminiscing about her horrible childhood. Get the therapy and then REALLY forget about it, I say! Don't live in the past, Martha!! Live, let live and enjoy what you have in the moment.

    The mythical legends and historical allure of the old west come galloping onward with The Old West Collection: Amazing Legends and Incredible Tales of the American West. This thundering audio compendium celebrates the epic events of America's frontier, whether rediscovering the California gold rush at Sutter's Mill in '49 or recreating the outsize personalities of John Jacob Astor to Belle Starr and Billy the Kid. From racing on horseback for Oklahoma land in '89 to Dodge and Last Chance Gulch.

    Virginia says: "Great Stories"
    "Good listening if you're a Western History buff!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed learning more about the West's history. The music actually made it funner to listen to. It is intended to be listened to as a radio show.

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "Is Stephenie losing steam??"
    Overall

    After listening to all of the "Twilight Saga", I was very disappointed with The Host. It just dragged on and on. I didn't sympathize with the human characters. In fact, I kept hoping that the "souls" would win at the end. It seems that Stephenie Meyer might be losing steam after all the hoopla of "Twilight." In fact, this novel did not even seem written by her. Very disappointed. It took me all of three months to listen to it. Twilight took only two for all three novels.

    Overall

    I've used Ambien in the past to get me to stay asleep. I was skeptical at first, but from night one of listening to Harrold's hypnotic voice, I really did fall asleep faster and I stayed asleep through the night. In fact, I've gotten addicted to it. I look forward to the soothing voice, the background music... There's something to it. I highly recommend it.
