    What other book might you compare The Power of the Pussy to and why?

    For women only - Shaunti Feldhahn as this too deals with what men are thinking.


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

    This book is not for the easily offended, lots of swearing and she tells it just how it is. Very refreshing!


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

    That your vagina is gold!

    The Husband's Secret is a funny, heartbreaking novel of marriage, grief, love, and secrets. When her husband announces he's in love with her best friend, painfully shy Tess picks up her young son and returns to her mother's house. There she begins an unexpected affair with an old flame. Rachel is a woman in her 60s consumed by grief and anger at the loss of her daughter 20 years earlier. When her son announces he is taking her beloved grandson overseas, Rachel begins a descent into deeper bitterness and pain.

    Would you try another book from Liane Moriarty and/or Caroline Lee?

    Yes as this was the second of her books I have tried and I just cant finish them.


    What was most disappointing about Liane Moriarty’s story?

    I think it is that I do not like her style of writing, she bores me.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The author spends too much time establishing the characters.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narration was good and Liane has a good following.

    Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love? These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

    Not the ending! It didn't go how I wanted it to :-)

    A 39-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, Edward Stanton lives alone on a rigid schedule in the Montana town where he grew up. His carefully constructed routine includes tracking his most common waking time (7:38 a.m.), refusing to start his therapy sessions even a minute before the appointed hour (10:00 a.m.), and watching one episode of the 1960s cop show Dragnet each night (10:00 p.m.). But when a single mother and her nine-year-old son move in across the street, Edward’s timetable comes undone....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I think so, although I am not convinced. It was a pleasant story but a little boring at the same time. Some chapters were quite drawn out.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I listened to "The Rosie Project" just prior this which made this book seem very bland indeed. It needed more funny moments and a decent ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    SPOILER ALERT......When his dad died. Horrible man.


    Do you think 600 Hours of Edward needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Unfortunately it did, as it was wrapped up so quickly. It seemed like the Author had just had enough of writing or it was a ploy to get you to buy the sequel to see what ended up happening to Edward.

    Fasting is the most ancient therapy of humanity. Even our forefathers observed that, after some days of fasting, a recrudescence of vitality and vigor shows itself in the organism. Nature turns it to account for the purpose of accelerating the functions of elimination, while the marvelous economy of the organism profits by the rest afforded to the digestive functions and by the vital machine's slackened activity resulting from the fast to cast off the impurities of the organism by every channel.

    What did you like best about The Essene Science of Fasting and the Art of Sobriety? What did you like least?

    Good information


    Would you recommend The Essene Science of Fasting and the Art of Sobriety to your friends? Why or why not?

    The religion. If we eat bad food we are succumbing to Satan. Little harsh don't you think? Gave me a chuckle though.


    What three words best describe Tom Zingarelli’s voice?

    Good narration


    Did The Essene Science of Fasting and the Art of Sobriety inspire you to do anything?

    Not really, but the further information was great. I have already been inspired by Michael Mosely's 5:2 diet which is much more realistic view that fits in with 21st century life and he doesn't preach chocolate is attached to Satan.

    Knowing that your subconscious is working all the time without you knowing it.

    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    I enjoyed this book and agree with other reviewers, it did start slow. This is a murder mystery story and if you like that Genre I would highly recommend it. Tara Ward did a fabulous job of narrating all the different characters and even using different accents quiet successfully. This made the book a pleasure to listen to. It is a long book about 13 hours but not too long for the story. I would have liked a few more "gasp" or "OMG" moments but I tend to find murder mysteries a little slow for my liking, hence the 3 star overall. A definite must for the murder mystery buffs out there though.

    I liked this book and I have read quite a few SH Books. In this book I found some real, down to earth, completely useful advice and patterns that I didn't know existed but proved to be my problem.
    The Narrator could have been better, his voice is fine but I wasn't a fan of his delivery. I kinda expected Windy to be a girl so would have liked a girl narrator too.

    No, I did not like this book at all.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything NOT from this author


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked that it was only 3 hours long. This book had great reviews from others. I get the higher self thing but I need something a bit tougher than smile and the world will smile with you approach. Maybe I am too stuck in my lower self for this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyance....I was waiting for her to breakout into a chorus of Sound of Music.
