    Story

    When the world was young and Gods still walked among their mortal children, a headstrong orphan boy set out to explore the world. Thus began the extraordinary adventures that would mold that youthful vagabond into a man, and the man into the finely honed instrument of Prophecy known to all the world as Belgarath the Sorcerer.

    Overall

    Oh what a terrible thing the narrator has done to this wonderful book. I have the all the other books in this series in audible format (as well as written!), and loved each and every one. But this is appalling, the narrator is boring, and worse than that there has been no attempt to make sure that the pronunciation is in line with the other audio books. It makes it almost painful to listen to, and the voice of "Silk" at the end is cringe-making turning him into a slimy character instead of the intelligent and witty person we all know him to be. The book is written from the viewpoint of Belgarath telling his life history, but the audible version makes him sound bored and arrogant. I have given it one star only because I know the story to be, in fact, well worth reading the book. I expected this to be 5 stars, instead I got 30ish hours of the worst audio book ever.

  • The Pain-Free Room: Hypnosis for the Relief of Chronic Pain

    This relaxing hypnosis program allows the listener to create a pain-free area in the brain and find relief from chronic physical and emotional pain. By creating this pain-free zone, one is able to escape the grind of constant pain, and break any chronic pain loops. The download reinforces the mind's ability to focus selectively, which enhances the brain's own pain-relief mechanism.

    Story

    The author claims to have written a guided meditation in which you can create a pain free room in your own mind. And has failed. She wanders off the point going into explanations that are hugely distracting and prevent the listener from achieving any kind of self hypnosis or benefit. I only listened to this once and far from helping me to cope with my chronic pain it left me annoyed and feeling that I had been taken advantage of.
