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

    If you assume men can only think of one thing, which is sex, and want to use their obsession with sex to manipulate them then give it a try. There may be some validity to some of the ideas, but I doubt that most women would want to conduct relationships based purely on manipulation and control tactics. As a mature woman I found it shallow, prejudiced and unfair. I also wonder what impact it could have on a teen aged or immature reader who might not have very informed social/sexual behavior judgments anyway?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kara King again?

    probably not


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I had no problem with the narration, it was the assumptions in the subject matter I didn't care for.


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

    a few, in places it was funny, if you didn't take it seriously as a behavior guide.

  • Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Near-Death Experience and Journey into the Afterlife

    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.

    Kelly says: "Compelling"

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

    What I liked most about this book was how the author remained objective and explained from the scientific, yet personal point of view, why he thinks that human consciousness exceeds this one lifetime.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is an autobiography, but the family members are also involved.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't know about the "re-entry" process that people who have been in a coma might have to deal with. It isn't my "favorite" scene, but one that I wasn't expecting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not what the title says. This isn't a "heaven" factored story, it is a NDE, or near death experience biography told in a straightforward manner.

  • Roma: The Novel of Ancient Rome

    Weaving history, legend, and new archaeological discoveries into a spellbinding narrative, critically acclaimed novelist Steven Saylor gives new life to the drama of Rome's first 1,000 years - from the founding of the city by the ill-fated twins Romulus and Remus, through Rome's astonishing ascent to become the capital of the most powerful empire in history.

    S. Caruso says: "Excellent Feel for Ancient Rome"
    "Spoiled by James Michener"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Perhaps I am spoiled by James Michener, but I don't get the word pictures that describe people and things in as much depth as I had hoped. However, it was a good "read" in terms of understanding the times. It sped through history and lacked the sense of depth at any particular part of it that would have made it more "real" to me.


    Would you recommend Roma to your friends? Why or why not?

    Oh, if someone wanted company on a long commute, or was bored, it would have value, but as to learning something from it, not so much.


    What aspect of John Lee’s performance would you have changed?

    I don't know. Maybe just more substance to the characters? I didn't get to know or like any of them.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
