No, not intentionally.
This sent my mind wandering away from the story almost immediately.
I found it hard to believe that these stories are real, in any way, shape or form. If they are real in fact, there is no merit, no value to them. They are wanderings of someone's mind. So sorry I purchased this.
I always enjoy reading life after death stories. This was not one of them. This is an intellectual study of religions, non believers and science on the subject at hand. My mind wandered often during the narration. I do not believe this book provided any evidence of life after death as it is left up to the listener what they believe after all of the so called evidence.
Fascinating look inside the relationship/marriage of Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. I could not stop listening and in fact listened to it a second time so as not to miss anything. It let's us know that most of have stories to tell about our life and marriage, including the famous. I loved the humanness of Mr. Lincoln. I cannot wait to compare this to the current Lincoln movie when I see it. For those who love President Lincoln and need to know more, get this one.
Listening to this Lincoln story has led me to The Madness of Mary Todd Lincoln.
I was about 13 when the Manson murderous rampage happened. It shook me greatly when I realized that the world I lived in was not all fun and play and happiness. There was more to this world than I ever would have thought or believed. I saw the TV movie based on this book and it was gripping, but did not come close to this book. Some parts I could not bear to hear and had me cringing and shaken. It was difficult to put down once I started to listen. I wondered how some of these murder cases ever get solved, the police in this case out of touch with other law enforcement. Must be a California thing. Bugliosi was brilliant in his prosecution. This story led me to follow up on all of the characters in the Manson Family to see where they are today. Are some people that easily led by a madman? Shocking. If you love true life murder stories, this is the one for you.
I liked Rob's story and in his own voice, the narration would not have pulled it all together if it had been done by someone else. This is a compilation of brief stories of Lowe's life, ups, downs, highs, lows. Some so brief, I think I missed a few, like the story on St. Elmo's Fire. I wanted so much to hear about the behind the scenes friendships, etc. I went back through some of the chapters to see if I could find something, anything, but must have slept through it. Still, a good read/listen and I would definitely recommend to Lowe fans. For me, I always thought that someone who has great looks, life would just come easy. It seems I was wrong.
I will keep and treasure this. It is great insight to one of my most favorite women.
I liked the look inside the cast of characters. Not only Diana's but other's important in her life. The Queen, Prince Phillip and Prince Charles changed my minds about them for the better, and others for worse..
Her voice is wonderful, crisp and easy to listen to. I know I have heard her read before. Excellent!
Yes, and some sections I listened more than once.
One of the very best books on Diana.
Charles Thomas Cayce, grandson of Edgar Cayce narrates. Except for Edgar Cayce himself, who better to narrate? His voice is pleasant and soothing.
I have always been a follower of Edgar Cayce and wished I had the opportunity to be taught by him. This pre-sleep series in a great opportunity for me to do so. I listened to this audio fully awake the first time and listened all the way through. It does talk you into sleep as it continues to speak and teach how to change your life to receive abundance. After the first night of listening, I remember falling asleep halfway through. When I woke in the morning, my mood was very positive and I had noticed that I felt optimistic about everything and everyone. Even my blood sugar was stable throughout the day. In fact I felt happier than I had in a very long time. I felt positive. That is all I can say. I will continue listening each night. My husband wants to try the better sleep in the pre-sleep series.
As a lifetime Beatles fan there is little that I have not heard before in this audiobook, but still it had me hooked and I could not break away. I felt like a fifth Beatle and rode the roller coaster ride the Beatles were on. I understood each character perfectly, warts and all. The Beatles were a magical creation, a miracle, there is no other way to describe it. It was an incredible journey of truly gifted souls that came together and changed generations. If you like the Beatles, I believe you will love this.
The most memorable moment was the firing of Pete Best.
Alfred Molina was an excellent narrator. He kept my attention throughout.
I didn't want to stop listening. I listened to Part 1 for nearly 4 hours before stopping.
Thoroughly enjoyable and very interesting.
