    An amazing secret has tumbled off a freight train into Carter, Georgia, and Owen Jester is the only person who knows about it. If he can simply manage to evade his grandfather’s snappish housekeeper and keep his nosy neighbor, Viola, at bay, he just might be in for the summer of a lifetime.

    Best-selling writer and physician Gabor Maté looks at the epidemic of addictions in our society, tells us why we are so prone to them, and details what is needed to liberate ourselves. Starting with a close view of his drug-addicted patients, Dr. Maté looks at his own history of compulsive behavior, weaving a story of real people who struggle with addiction with the latest research on addiction and the brain. In a bold synthesis of clinical experience, insight and cutting edge scientific findings, Dr. Maté sheds light on this most puzzling of human frailties.

    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts to be better than the print version?

    Not sure.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    This book covers many topics in depth relevant to addiction, and partcularlly the physical and biological cause and effect.


    What about Daniel Maté’s performance did you like?

    Direct, clear.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Why current prevailing social attitudes toward addiction are likely very ineffective, and most certainly inhumane, in light of biological reasons for addiction.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended.

    Life in Fayette, South Carolina, is nothing but boring for Popeye. Then an RV crashes in front of his house, depositing Elvis Jewell and his five rowdy siblings on the scene. Elvis likes to make his own adventures and doesn't have much time for rules. This excites Popeye to no end, and soon he befriends this strange visitor. One day, while playing by the river, the two witness miniature boats carrying secret messages floating with the current, thus inspiring a epic tiny adventure.

    Overall

    My kids and I have listened to this story several times. I admit that in the fist five minutes I had doubts, and suggested we move on to something else. They protested, and were right. It is a funny, wonderful, and unexpected story.
