  • The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for Burning Fat, Building Lean Muscle, Ending Emotional Eating, and Maintaining Your Perfect Weight

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 4 mins)

    The Body Fat Solution is neither super low carb nor super low fat, and the author steers clear of demonizing entire food groups. Instead, Venuto shows you how to personalize an eating plan that takes into account your unique metabolism and calorie needs. He details the stumbling blocks we all face to success, and gives you the tools to overcome them.

    Would you listen to The Body Fat Solution again? Why?

    Yes- I like the overall theme of the book, but the way the narrator pronounces some obvious words kind of makes me want to cringe. I don't know why!

    Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

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

    I have listened to A LOT of books, and this is one of my very favorites


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

    I loved the plot. This is three stories woven into one. It is captivating, and each character is fascinating in their own psychology in the tale. It is a story of many people suffering emotionally in different ways based on events in their past. Each person has their own coping mechanism, but learns to overcome by what they learn from one another. There is love, romance, hardship, pain, and hope.


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

    Although this is a story that most of us have heard before in various formats, having a voice to the survivor telling the story made it very real. It was also fascinating to be inside of the mind of the perpetrator(s) to this crime against humanity. It is so difficult to understand how someone could justify their actions in this type of circumstance. Picoult opens a window to help the listener understand that dyanmic through the voice of the narrator. It is difficult to hate the person altogether after you feel like you know and understand him better. The internal conflict felt by he main character concerning her relationship with the elderly man is completely understandable.

A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you listen to The Witness again? Why?

    I generally do not listen to books (or read them) twice, but I can see how you could. This was such a lovely story, and I did not anticipate it ending as it did. I really loved it, and could not wait for every opportunity to listen.


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

    Yes
