    Story
    (105)

    May 1992, and after four LAPD officers were acquitted after the savage beating of Rodney King, Los Angeles is ablaze. As looting and burning take over the city, law and order are swept away in a tidal wave of violence. But under threat of their lives, homicide detectives like Harry Bosch are still stubbornly trying to do their job. With no effective police presence on the streets, murder just got a whole lot easier - and investigating them got a whole lot harder.

    I enjoyed this one. A nice "switch-off-your-life-and-go-sit-somewhere" listen.
    Can listen to more of these.
    Thanks for a great read (performance).

    Oliver Sacks' The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat tells the stories of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations: patients who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects; who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

    Very interesting. Informative. Easy to listen to. This book presents a subject that traditionally requires a massive educational process to enable you to debate it, listen to it and read it, in a very understandable way to people not familiar to the field of psychiatry. It is really well written and very well narrated. A definite thumbs-up from me!

  • Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Story
    If you could sum up Heaven Is for Real in three words, what would they be?

    I'd say one must be very secure in your faith and be very knowledgeable in the Word of God - the Bible - if you intend to read this. It most definitely is comforting to the one so dearly missing a passed-away loved one. But it treads on a terrain not so well demarcated in the Bible and a terrain misused and abused almost time and again by anyone who tries to venture there...


    What other book might you compare Heaven Is for Real to and why?

    The only book to compare this to is the Bible itself - The Scriptures are the only and most truest of references that we have on these sort of issues.


    What does Dean Gallagher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The story was well read.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a father who lost my son, my only son, at age 5 years and 6 months in March 2011. He also was ill and also was wrongly diagnosed by doctors. He died in my arms when he went from high fever into hypothermia. We fought for his life on the farm and in the ambulance and in the emergency room, for 2 hours - his heart kept beating very weakly for that period but we were told afterwards that he in fact must have died when he collapsed. I am a God fearing man who judges everything in life by the Word of God and I teach this to my children. I inspect life and try to be weary of the traps. I would never have listened to this audiobook would my beloved son not have died and I still be in mourning and looking for answers, understanding and acceptance.
    This is just too much of a dangerous topic for the one who does not know his Maker and His Scriptures. Such a person is apt to fall further behind if he or she ventures on these grounds. But what I can admit was that I received a lot of encouraging, understanding and acceptance when I listened to this and confirmed Scripture accuracy - a LOT. I have not cross-checked everything yet - therefore, please do not accept on my account that I reckon everything said here is true and well and in line with the Bible. I just say that I still need to re-listen a few parts and read up on that. But this book has done me well and assisted in my healing and for that I thank my Heavenly Father and the dear people who exposed themselves in the putting forth of their most private heartaches. It is now February 2012. The birth date of my son's passing away and that most dreaded and awful day of my life is a mere month away. Anticipation is building up and I am not looking forward to it. May you find your answers in God alone.
