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.
Yes, I virtually did listen to this book all in one sitting.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Eva and Gideon's First passionate encounter in the limo. That is when the story line started to heat up and get really good.
I love her narrating. You can tell she really got into the story and how she uses her voice to differentiate between the characters.
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.
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.
