I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    This whole series was gravy! We had such a great number of laughs and really enjoyed ourselves. You know a book is good when commute time is the highlight of the day!

    The characters are funny, sensitive and downright creative. Lots of comments and actions are only going to be caught by adults so I would not classify as kids only books. The books are cliff hanger ending types and only wrap up nicely if the whole series is read.

    If you have finished this series and need something else that is funny, fun and is a thrill for commuters, then check out Dave Rosenfeld's Andy Carpenter series or go kid-targeted and get Bras and Broomsticks.

    We enjoyed this enough to gift it to a friend. This series was that good.

    Pick pockets thinking that they come out ahead by taking the money of others. When it comes down to ill-gotten money, it just doesn't add up to a good ending.

    The Shadow stories are short and enjoyable but they can be difficult to hear due to the age of the original media. I prefer the stronger voice of Bret Morrison over Bill Johnstone, Bret's voice carries more cleanly across the years of the aging media storage.

    Try to listen to these audio stories at home or with some serious noise canceling headphones. It will make the listening time more enjoyable. Stories vary in quality of writing. Pick these up in the sets of audio instead of individuals.

    This one was read by Orson Welles. The district attorney has been threatened.

    I thought this story was odd but not out of line for The Shadow. Quick and enjoyable with a simple but weird tale of fraud.

    The Shadow is one of my favorite old time radio programs. Sometimes the sound quality shows the age poorly. There are a few hisses and pops in this audio. The story line tells of Cranston's trouble with a person who sets him up as the bait to clear the city so an evening of crime spree can happen. Odd storyline that Cranston should have seen coming. I enjoyed the short story.

  • Many Lives, Many Masters: The True Story of a Psychiatrist, His Young Patient, and Past-Life Therapy

    (265)

    Dr. Brian Weiss is a highly respected psychiatrist from the mainstream of the medical establishment. Catherine is one of his most difficult cases, a 27-year-old woman racked by phobias and anxieties. In the course of Catherine's treatment, Dr. Weiss makes a startling discovery. Under hypnosis, she recollects, in vivid detail, events from past lives ranging from the prehistoric times and ancient Egypt to the 20th century and the fires of World War II.

    What made the experience of listening to Many Lives, Many Masters the most enjoyable?

    The author read his own story, which doesn't work all the time. It started out a bit on the blah side in reading. I think as the story progressed the author's softer voice became more convincing.

    A good reader is critical for audio books and I am always a bit worried when a non-professional voice is doing the reading.

    I enjoyed the stories about the many lives of Catherine. Her descriptions and explanations of things in her lives were crazy, weird, exciting and dramatic. It made me wonder how she has progressed in her relationships after she solved her anxieties, depression, and fear. Is she still having an affair with a man she knows from a previous life? Did she end it? How have things progressed with her parents?

    The news from the Masters is moving. We have so much to learn on the Earth.

    This quick listen is a classic Shadow story. It is creepy, strange and holds your attention. I think this story has good clarity considering the age (a few pops and whistles) and the story is strong. I like it!

    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think this book is totally for SNL fans. 'Pat' isn't doing it for me.

    If you really enjoy listening to live comedy AND you like Saturday Night Live, then this book is for you. I'm having a hard time with poking fun at one's family in this fashion.

    Sorry everyone. I know you don't like my few stars but would you allow me to not enjoy this? Call it my crazy moment, but allow me to choose my own 5 star books. Ok?
