  • Never Goin' Back: Winning the Weight-Loss Battle for Good

    Al Roker’s aha! moment came a decade ago. He was closing in on 350 pounds when he promised his dying father that he wasn’t going to keep living as he was. That led to his decision for a stomach bypass - and his life-changing drop to 190. But 50 of those pounds gradually crept back until he finally devised a plan, stuck to it, and got his life back. Never Going Back is Roker’s inspiring, candid, and often hilarious story of self-discovery, revealing a (now slimmer) side of his life that no one knows.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I liked the way Al spoke as if we were sitting down talking together. His story was very personal. I got a lot of good information from his experiences. I have read this book several times because I relate to his situations and enjoy the antic dotes.

  • The End of the Affair

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 28 mins)

    (2511)

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Karen Downes says: "Colin whispers in my ear, and I melt"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Graham Greene and/or Colin Firth?

    The story was boring and stagnant, I just didn't sympathize with any of the characters. I bought it because of Colin Firth.


    What could Graham Greene have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Was so depressing, I knew inevitably it would be by the title but there didn't seem to be any happy moments. There didn't seem to even be a reason for the affair in the first place.


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

    I listened to it longer because of his voice, but I really couldn't make myself finish the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The End of the Affair?

    I can't answer that.
