    Anne Lamott is known for her perceptive and funny writings about spirituality. Listeners of all ages have followed her faith journey through decades of trial and error (sometimes more error than Annie wanted), and in her new book, she has coalesced all she knows about prayer to three essentials: Help, Thanks, and Wow. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating all that we have and all that is good, and feeling awe at the beauty of the world around us - that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward.

    Story
    Would you listen to Help, Thanks, Wow again? Why?

    I could and might listen to this several times. I believe that everyone would or could get something out of this little gem!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is very personal and human.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I didn't really enjoy the author's voice. I might have enjoyed reading the book on my own even more. But the overall message and points were so good that I got over it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book speaks to the human experience and there was a particularly touching story the author shared about a boy coming to learn about the realities of death and that his mother would likely die before him.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend if you are interested in spiritual life, regardless of religious affiliation.

  • The Fault in Our Stars

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

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

    I have already recommended this book to several people. It is very moving. The narrator really brought it to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fault in Our Stars?

    I don't want to give anything away but the chapter in which Hazel and Augustus go on their dinner date was my favorite. I could feel the magic as if I had lived through it- I was so happy for them.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    Can't choose one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Make a wish.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, listen to it, you will be thankful.
