    Story

    I liked this one mainly because I am from the area where most of the story takes place. The story line did not have the same development as many of Kings other works in my opinion. It was still easy to listen to and entertaining and I loved the details about Florida!

  • The Book Thief

    Story
    (5660)

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Story
    (1191)

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

  • The Autobiography of Jack the Ripper

    Story
    (55)

    This memoir was recently discovered and appears to have been written in the 1920s by someone who asserts that he was Jack the Ripper. This person is James Willoughby Carnac, and this memoir was written shortly before his death. It is an account of his entire life, including a few short months in 1888 when he became the murderer known to posterity as Jack the Ripper.

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

    This is tough for me to listen to. It does have some good content but I don't find it keeps my attention very well. Not time well-spent for me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Bruce H. Lipton? Why or why not?

    No, I don't think so.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not sure.


    Could you see The Wisdom of Your Cells being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No,


    Any additional comments?

    Not for me...very rambling.
