    At age 19, pilot Dale Black miraculously survived an airplane crash that killed the other two pilots on board. Hovering between life and death for three days, he had a breathtaking experience of heaven. Against all odds and with insurmountable injuries, Capt. Black recovered from his injuries and returned to fly airplanes as a professional pilot. For 40 years he kept the story to himself at the urging of his grandfather to "live" his experience rather than talk about it.

    I'm sorry, I just found this story to be rambling. I tried to stick with it because I wanted to hear about the author's trip to heaven, but he took so long to get to it and took so many side trips, I gave up.

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    One Funny Lady


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved listening to Carol tell the story of her own funny and amazing life. She has lived her life to the fullest, pursuing and achieving her dreams in a way that most of us only dream of. And while her life hasn't always been easy, her ability to see her with through with humor and dignity makes her. Her talent is unsurpassed, but she comes across as deeply human and not at all a spoiled star. Great life, great story!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    What can I say? You've got to listen to this story! Mystery, ghosts, a smidge of terror and murder, even a little history. A ghost story like no other. You will love it!

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    This is the first audiobook I have ever listened to non-stop from beginning to end!


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    Kate Rudd did a fabulous job voicing all of the characters, male and female alike.


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

    Because of the subject of this book: teenagers dealing with cancer and life, it could've been a real downer. Instead it was wonderful, very real, making me laugh...and cry at different times.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm the mom of a teen cancer survivor, so I guess you could say I've "been there." This book does an amazing job of capturing what it's like for teens who are battling cancer...at a time when they should be feeling immortal, dreaming of their futures, and gaining their independence. It addresses the lonliness, the fear, the HOPE, the courage, the pain, the strength, and the isolation of two teens who just want to live, and maybe even find love. A very real, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet story. I loved it!
