    My husband and I are listening to this book while we drive. I find myself looking for errands to do so we can drive and listen. We have a 45 minute drive each way to work . Crunch Time makes the time fly - even if stuck in traffic.I love the way the narrator changes voices for the different characters. This audible book is fantastic. I have read or listened to all of Goldie's books as they become available! When is the next book due. We were talking this morning wondering if this would ever be made into a movie. It would be a must see.

    Story

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    What made the experience of listening to Proof of Heaven the most enjoyable?

    Hearing the authors genuine belief of what happened to him. Coming from a man of science, admitting miracles do happen.

    When he went to church after his illness and he was overwhelmed with emotions.


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

    Emotion, feelings and a true belief.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This strengthened my faith. I had chills many times while listening .

    The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

    Story
    (230)

    Carl Weber is a New York Times best-selling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache. In The Choir Director, Bishop T.K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Remove all sex events.


    What could Carl Weber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Kept the basic story line, remove all sexual events. Much too graphic for a story with a title referring to church.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. There were several narrators


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

    The cleaner story line was very good.


    Any additional comments?

    Clean it up, way too much sex.

    Story

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?
