    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I heard about this book on Oprah's book club and found it to be fascinating as well as spiritual in ways you wouldn't think.


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

    Yes, I virtually did listen to this book all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book I've read from Cheryl Strayed and listened to by Bernadette Dunne. At first it was a little disappointing that the author did not read the book herself. After seeing her on Oprah I hoped it was in her voice. Although after a while I really got into the book and the narrator who was speaking. I hope Cheryl writes another book and I will be reading more books narrated by Bernadette. I hope that they do come out with an abridged version at least with Cheryl reading the book though.

    Let’s be real for a sec. Most of us don’t have time for an hour of yoga or 30 minutes of meditation every day. We’re overwhelmed as it is. Our spiritual practice shouldn’t add to that. That’s why I’ve handpicked 108 simple techniques to combat our most common problems - stress, burnout, frustration, jealousy, resentment. The stuff we have to deal with on a daily basis. This audiobook is designed so that you can achieve peace and experience miracles now. Inspired by some of the greatest spiritual teachings, Miracles Now uses practical, moment-to-moment tools to help you eliminate blocks and live with more ease.

    Where does Miracles Now rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed listening to this book. I was glad it was read by the author because I love her personality. I've followed her for a while on social media and was eager to read this book. As, I'm ready for some changes in my life. This was one of the better audiobooks I've listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how Gabrielle is so down to earth in her concepts. She doesn't make things sound complicated. All of these things are simple to do. You don't need to spend an hour doing yoga and meditation.


    What does Gabrielle Bernstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening to books when I'm doing other things. I also loved hearing her voice. It was very soothing. The only thing is that you don't get to see some of the exercises. So, I'll be buying the kindle addition as well. I did some of the exercises that she explained but I'll have to get the book to look at the other exercises.


    What did you learn from Miracles Now that you would use in your daily life?

    I have been a practitioner of kundalini yoga and meditation. I've also read some of Marianne Williamson's books so I am not a stranger to The Course in Miracles. But, I really liked how she puts the two together. Most of the stuff she talked about regarding the course and the yoga I already knew. But, she has a lot of other good advice and points that are not apart of the course and yoga as well. Some insights really made me think about my own life and how I can use these practices in my daily life. I also want to learn more about tapping. I knew a little and this enlightened me some more but it doesn't go in depth into it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is worth listening to. but, I would also buy the kindle or hard copy edition to follow along on the exercises. Overall, I loved listening to Gabby's voice and am so glad she read it herself. If you practice yoga and meditation or have studied the course this is a good refresher. If you never have studied yoga or the course this is a great introduction book.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    If you could sum up Bared to You in three words, what would they be?

    Hot
    Dark
    Erotic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bared to You?

    Eva and Gideon's First passionate encounter in the limo. That is when the story line started to heat up and get really good.


    What does Jill Redfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love her narrating. You can tell she really got into the story and how she uses her voice to differentiate between the characters.


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

    When Eva and Gideon admit they love one another. When they open up to one another in ways that neither one of them think is possible.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not read Fifty shades so I can not compare this book to that series. I have heard the story line and characters are almost the same so if that is the case then some people might be turned off by this book. However, I think this book is a very passionate and erotic book. But, it also has a great story line and really shows what can happen when two people start to open up there hearts to one another in ways neither one of them thought was possible. I think the narration is also great. Jill does an amazing job. Even if the story is similar to fifty shades it is worth it to at least listen to this book just for her brilliant narration.
