    Healing the Shame That Binds You is the most enduring work of family relationship expert and New York Times best-selling author John Bradshaw. In it, he shows how unhealthy toxic shame, often learned young and maintained into adulthood, is the core component in our compulsions, co-dependencies, addictions and drive to superachieve.

    Would you listen to Healing the Shame that Binds You again? Why?

    I am , it's difficult to follow everything so I'm listening to it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Healing the Shame that Binds You?

    .


    Which character – as performed by John Pruden – was your favorite?

    It's not that type of book - this is a textbook really


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I am able to identify where I have carried shame in my own life.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, this is pretty much a text book. Don't expect it to roll like the catcher in the rye. There are parts that won't apply to you but the parts that do may make it all worth it.

  • A Feast for Crows: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 4

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Everything. It's droning, nothing happens, half the characters are MIA. I made it all the way to book 4 and I don't think I'll continue.


    If you’ve listened to books by George R. R. Martin before, how does this one compare?

    nope


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator used the voices inconsistently. It made things that much worse.


    Was A Feast for Crows worth the listening time?

    NO!!!! It was a 32 hour reminder that I wasted my money.


    Any additional comments?

    The foundation of a good story is there - it just never showed up.

    Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

    What did you love best about Side Jobs?

    Side jobs closes some gaps in the series. I can see why some of the stories were left out from a continuity standpoint but I am very glad to have heard them


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    James Marsters is the best narrator out there. Book 13 is read by someone else and I enjoyed it but it's not the same. I have listened to them all and there is a comfort level or even intimacy that you have with a narrator. You are letting this person whisper in your ear for 15 hours or so. In the case ofJames Marsters I find an honesty or sincerity that matches what I would expect from Harry. He adds to the suspension of disbelief required in a series like this.

    James Marsters is a gifted and talented man.


    Who was the most memorable character of Side Jobs and why?

    Murphy.


    Any additional comments?

    I was sad when I finished listening to this as I thought it was the end of the line for the Dresden files and I was excited to see that "Cold Days" was released but it' s not available on Audible yet. Thanks Mr. Butcher for all the hours of entertainment.

    The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council - and there's only one, final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden....

    James Marster is the best narrator I have found. I enjoy the series and the environment Jim Butcher has created. The series is excellent and worth the time and money.
