    What made the experience of listening to The Zombie Survival Guide the most enjoyable?

    All of the voice actors are amazing!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zombie Survival Guide?

    The part where the movie stars are being guarded was pretty funny, and when the people had to eat each other in the north.... ALL of the moments are memorable!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have a few times!


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this book so many time that I can mouth the words as they are saying them, but the thing that gets me is that this book gets better every time!

  • Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children's Crusade: A Duty Dance with Death

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 53 mins)

    Story
    (1361)

    Kurt Vonnegut's absurdist classic introduces us to Billy Pilgrim, a man who becomes 'unstuck in time' after he is abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. In a plot-scrambling display of virtuosity, we follow Pilgrim simultaneously through all phases of his life, concentrating on his (and Vonnegut's) shattering experience as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children's Crusade to be better than the print version?

    This book was so fantastic.. I can't even explain it with words.. you just need to read it, it will change your life!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, obviously the main character..


    What about Ethan Hawke’s performance did you like?

    I could picture each character specifically.. It was so visual for just words


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did all of the above, I also couldn't put it down. It put me in a daze for the rest of the day afterwards, just trying to put together all of the facts and everything that happened. It was a bit of a mind... screw. But I really liked that about this book!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is definitely in my top 5

    The Zen Habits Handbook for Life is a compilation of Leo Babauta's best articles on living from a Zen Habits perspective. What will this book teach you to do? Basically the same things that Zen Habits aims for overall: how to simplify your life, how to live a happier life, how to be more productive with less stress, how to achieve your dreams. The book includes chapters on decluttering, single-tasking, eliminating nonessentials, planning your day, clearing your inbox, getting motivated, cultivating compassion, boosting self-confidence, living consciously, and much more!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Zen Habits to be better than the print version?

    It is easy to listen to this while you are busy doing something that doesn't a lot of effort. This book is an easy listen and is very informative!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    What I really liked about this book, is that it is an actual step by step guide to life. The author states that not everything works for everyone, but he clearly describes what he does in his own like to stay sane. It is very very helpful, I thoroughly enjoyed it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part was how to keep organized at work. He explains exactly what you need to do with all of that paperwork piling up on your desk and how to keep your email from sucking the life out of you.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part of the book where he describes how waking up early can help you immensely was very surprising to me. I didn't think there was a way for me to actually consider waking up hours before I really need to be up. Not only did this guy get me to consider it, I now do it every day and feel so much more accomplished and just generally happier overall.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was very helpful to me, it helped me much much more than I ever thought it would, or could! I love how it describes how to do each step explicitly!
