    Now considered a classic in the field, this remarkable book was the first to fully explore the mystery of life between lives. Journey of Souls presents the first-hand accounts of 29 people placed in a "superconscious" state of awareness using Dr. Michael Newton's groundbreaking techniques. This unique approach allows Dr. Newton to reach his subjects' hidden memories of life in the spirit world after physical death.

    "Absolutely fascinating"
    Overall

    When my friend recommended this book to me I was a little hesitant. I have believed in reincarnation for the last 20 years of my life, but have never thought much about past life regressions. This books goes beyond the past life syndrome and takes the reader to the life between lives. I didn't want it to end and I ended up getting his next book Destiny of Souls. You won't be disappointed. It is absolutely fascinating.

    Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I couldn't finish the book. I got more than halfway through and quit. I just simply could not listen to any more because of the narrator. That phony brogue was so distracting.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tana French? Why or why not?

    I loved her first book in this series and I just downloaded the next book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Heather O'Neill?

    Steven Crossley did a great job of narrating In the Woods.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Any additional comments?

    The build up was tremendous. Hour after hour of a twisted plot. And then after all of that there was no ending.Seriously? Did the author just simply get tired of writing? That's what it felt like.

    I definitely would not recommend this book.

    Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics....

    Where does The Drop rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I just had write a review on this one. The story is enjoyable if a little predictable but the narration is absolutely horrible. The narrator makes EVERYONE in the story sound like an old man. That includes all characters including the teenage daughter, all the women in the story and men, young and old. I will definitely never purchase another book narrated by Len Cariou.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was a little predictable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator makes EVERYONE in the story sound like an old man. That includes all characters including the teenage daughter, all the women in the story and men, young and old. I will definitely never purchase another book narrated by Len Cariou. I wish we had the option to put zero stars.

    "Housekeeper or housewife?" the soldier asks Silvana as she and eight-year-old Aurek board the ship that will take them from Poland to England at the end of World War II. There her husband, Janusz, is already waiting for them at the little house at 22 Britannia Road. But the war has changed them all so utterly that they'll barely recognize one another when they are reunited.

    Ellen says: "Haunting"
    "A must read"
    Overall

    One of the most beautiful love stories I have read and it gave me a different perspective of the world after the war. I didn't want it to end. I highly recommend it.

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Kathleen says: "A truly memorable read"
    "Impossible to listen to"
    Overall

    I kept trying to slog my way through it because the story line sounds so interesting but I finally gave up. The narrator doing the child's voice does a horrible job. It's unbearable. I forced myself for almost 2 hours thinking it would get better. It didn't. Money wasted. Don't buy it.

    Walter has a rubbish job, so has Margaret. But when they meet through a dating agency, neither is who they seem. Margaret's married for a start, and Walter's encounter with her husband, Billy, leaves him black and blue. Billy's a dodgy accountant for politician and racketeer Pink Harrison, who is about to come unstuck.

    "Worth a listen"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this book. The narration by Colin Bateman was delightful. Mastering the Irish brogue is not an easy accomplishment.

    The storyline was a bit of a stretch but all in all it left me feeling good. I laughed out loud several times.

    It's an enjoyable read and worth a listen.
