I have to listen to books because when I read I become immobilized and sit and sit and sit. Before bed I can do that but not on every day that I have off. So I listen as I drive, do dishes, etc.
When "mother" just gave up and stopped walking the activity board. When there's no hope it's hard to keep on.
What past society / culture hasn't believed "it can't happen here"? To think that is human nature. Yet historical reports illustrate that when it happens it happens quickly. We need to pay attention to the local and municipal trends regarding private property, the right to use self defense, the right to worship. We have the most precious gift of all: personal freedom. Let's keep our eyes on the ball.
The plot did keep me wondering and anticipating. I look forward to a sequel... please
I'm learning from a scholar whose work spans a good part of the 20th century. It's particularly enlightening to learn the specifics and the philosophical underpinnings throughout this analysis of socialism vs the American way.
I don't know of another book with this breadth, this depth, and this degree of scholarship that could compare.
When I read I stop and ponder too often and so often don't continue. Listening helps me to continue on to hear the main points and so I get a better overview of the subject matter.
I've wanted to read this but was afraid to buy it because I thought I'd get bogged down. Instead, I'm finding it to be an easy listen, it makes great sense, it's understandable, and I gain an appreciation for what I've grown up with here in the USA.
My dad was in the Korean "War" and I very much appreciate having a resource to go to to find out what he went through as a young man barely out of his teens.
He'd been in the Merchant Marines in WW2 and then Korea. Now I have a historical perspective of his life as a soldier.
My dad has already listened to this audible book several times. Several of his friends were interviewed for the book.
I've downloaded another book for him by the same author.
Breaking free now.
Prince teaches you to be your own prayer warrior. On your own behalf.
He also teaches you how to pray effectively for others so they may be freed from their own darkness.
This is the first I've hear Adams narrate. It was like listening to Prince himself. Great job.
Yes. I've listened to it many many times and will continue to do so.
The readers are outstanding. The score, both music and special effects, really adds to the experience. Listening to the Bible this way engages the senses -- my imagination soars in the same way that it does when listening to great radio drama.
It was easy to keep track of the many many many characters in the Bible while listening because the readers did so well at staying in character.
Listening to the Psalms is especially pleasing.
Wow. This really works. I've lost 20 pounds of fat and gained 5 pounds of muscle using Tom Venuto's ideas. I'm doing it in my own sweet time (one year now) but that's better than the old weight creeping up like it used to do before using this common sense approach
I kept thinking "Monty Python". And then realized "Oh yes, it's the origins of that type of English humor." Fun!
I've listened twice and I expect to listen a few more times shortly. Why? Well, something in the telling of it really brought home that I don't need to try to be what I already am: God's child. Hallelujah!
the best tagline for this book: For God's Children: Stop trying to be what you already are
Absolutely. You learn WW2 history through the eyes of Victor Henry, a fine man of good character. Also great insight into the German General's (Ruhn) perspective. You care about the character's lives and are drawn to care deeply about what happened in WW2
Natalie finally boiling over at her uncle's selfishness--yet, without hatred she continues to care for him and respect him.
Pug Henry was a fine man who I'd respect and would like to know. Natalie, because she was a caring person surrounded by egomaniacs -- and even though she sometimes seemed that she could irretrievably become one of them herself, you see her turning into a very fine sensitive young woman as the book comes to a close.
It was so engrossing that I hoped that after getting through it I'd find a reason to put the whole thing aside and not read the next book "War and Remembrance"... alas, I care too much about Pug and Natalie... and maybe Warren and Madelyn.... to not plow into the next book. Thankfully, I know who won the war.
Looking forward to learning about the US's war years in WW2 through the next book War and Remembrance.
