    Where does Cujo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Along with Christine, Cujo is my favorite Stephen King audio book. Christine though is a fun read, while Cujo deals with real life monsters and therefore can be taken more seriously.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The reality of it. Sin (adultery, drunkeness, carelessness, lack of communication) leads ultimately to the creation of a monster (a closet monster) that cannot be dealt with, with monster words. Dracula really cannot be beaten by wearing a cross, superficial religion that does not actually deal with sin - cannot save.

    As a pastor I appreciate that Stephen King seems to deal with total depravity and its very real monstrous impact on our world - theological accuracy!


    Have you listened to any of Lorna Raver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I almost did not purchase this audiobook because of so many negative reviews of Raver's performance. Yet, in my opinion she was outstanding. I was pleasantly suprised with how she handled even the male voices and because the book does include prominent female voices I believe she was a good choice to narrate.

    I guess it is a matter of taste but in my opinion Raver's narration of this book compares favorably with any other narration of any book by any narrator I have heard.


    Who was the most memorable character of Cujo and why?

    Gary Pervier is my favorite. His soft heart toward Cujo endears you to him in spite of his many faults. Raver does a great job with his voice.

    Experience the majestic language of the King James Bible skillfully narrated through the powerful voice of Max McLean. The King James Bible (KJV) was written with oral interpretation in mind. When presented by a gifted narrator, the grandeur of its phrasing and the rich musicality of its rhythms resonate in the ear and mind of the listener.

    Mark says: "Good"
    "There is nothing better than the Bible!"

    If you could sum up The Listener's Bible in three words, what would they be?

    God's Holy Word


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Listener's Bible?

    Jesus Christ's rising from the dead, conquering sin and death!


    What about Max McLean’s performance did you like?

    He speaks clearly and reverently, he is easy to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many but if I have to choose I would say Jesus Christ's death on the cross and His saying from the cross "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do."

    America's foremost marriage expert has come to the remarkable conclusion that great marriages are not built on behavioral skills. Rather, they are built on a foundation of trust. If your spouse does not feel safe enough to open up his or her heart without fear of being judged, criticized, or rejected, nothing you do, such as learning to control your emotions, learning your partner's love language, or even becoming an expert in the bedroom, will matter.

    Ronda says: "Everything I needed to hear"
    "Read or listen to this book before you marry ..."

    What did you love best about I Promise?

    Real life experience, real life application to the heart of marital difficulties.


    What other book might you compare I Promise to and why?

    I don't think I could / would compare it to any other. I guess it could be compared to any pre-marital counseling book and yet it deals with one issue, security in marriage, more exclusively than other books do and impresses on you the importance of building that SECURITY into a relationship, even before marriage. It tells you how to do that also.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    N/A


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from I Promise?

    If I ever marry again, I will read or listen to this book with my prospective wife before marriage.
