I would agree with many of the other reviewers here - this is so tired and so self indulgent on Patricia Cornwell's part. I can't remember the last time I read one of her books where the action was not centred directly on Scarpetta and those close to her, full of suspicion and innuendo. It is getting really old. I was hoping for the brilliant murder mysteries Cornwell used to write but it seems she cannot write a plot without making it all about the main characters.
I will not be reading any more Kay Scarpetta and I would strongly suggest you save your time and money and give this one a miss. I only finished it because I was pissed off I'd paid $24.95 for it.
Awful narration. Very off-putting, inappropriate inflection. Just made a terrible story worse and very hard to listen to.
This is a short audiobook but I found it to be an excellent insight into the issues and emotions that we face in our daily lives. I've always avoided the idea of an "inner child" affecting who I am today, however, a number of issues have led me to explore this, and I think Shakti Gawain's book is a practical, down to earth look at what might be governing the decisions and action we take. At only 45mins it is worth taking the time to listen to.
Although the authour, Geneen Roth, has a rather annoying voice (somewhat whining and babyish), the message in her books is excellent. As someone who has struggled with weight issues for a very long time, her take on it is very different from most, but made complete sense to me. I would recommend listening to this and her other books. You get used to her voice after a while and what remains is a way to explore the deeper issues associated with food.
Pema Chodron is the most wonderful speaker. She has a lovely lilting, relaxing voice and what she says is well worth listening to. These sessions, recorded at a retreat, will give the listener lots of common sense, practical advice that they can really use to make their busy lives more spiritual. Highly recommended!
