    Best-selling author Deepak Chopra states that within each of us is a book of mysteries waiting to be opened, and when it is, the secrets of the universe will be revealed to us. The secret of love is to be found nowhere but within us, along with the secrets of healing, compassion, and faith, and the most elusive secret of all: who we truly are.

    There is a ton of information packed into this book and all of it is wonderful to hear. Every section has something of interest and I was eager for more down to the last minute.

    For young single women, every night is Ladies' Night. For Brett Paesel and her friends, Friday happy hour is all they get, if they can wrangle the babysitting. Like most mommies, they support each other through pregnancies, sleep deprivation, and the need to talk about it all. Instead of meeting at the playground, they convene at the local watering hole while sipping Black and Tans and flirting with the cute bartender.

    Jacqueline A. Pitt says: "About Time!"
    "Entertaining and uplifting"
    Overall

    Great narration - Brett's voice is pleasant to listen to. I'm a new mom and I enjoyed all 8+ hours of this audio file as it made me laugh, gave me insights to the future as well as inspiration.

    The human race has reached a Time of Choosing. Our options are being placed before us by the tide of events, and by those who are creating them. We can either move forward, building together at last a new world of peace and harmony based on new beliefs about God and Life, or move backward, separately and continuously reconstructing the old world of conflict and discord.

    Robert says: "Finally, a way to make sense of it all!"
    "A little off the mark for me"
    Overall

    To preface, I am considered a "spiritual" person and have been called a "mystic" or labeled "new age" by some. In short, I choose not to participate in organized religion of any sort.

    I listened to half of this book and feel that there is no message here for me. Granted, I share many of the feelings or beliefs discussed in this title, but I think this book is intended to convince or spark interest in people of organized religions to be more open to incorporating new ideas of spirituality into their belief systems. Problem for me is that It flat out says that groups of religious orders are wrong. True or not (who knows?), on the converse this is not something that I would want for a person from an organized religion to tell me.

    The approach just seems a little weird or off. But see for yourself if you're curious or "called" to do so.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Chris says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Could not stop listening."
    Overall

    Full of history and rich characters, there is never a dull moment in "Middlesex". This unabridged title comes in 3 download files and I eagerly moved from one file to the next. The narrator adeptly fleshes out the tone of each character fluidly pulling me through the story. It usually takes me a full month to listen to what ever I download. This title took me just a few days.

    Ten years after the publication of Wicked, beloved novelist Gregory Maguire returns at last to the land of Oz. There he introduces us to Liir, an adolescent boy last seen hiding in the shadows of the castle after Dorothy did in the Witch. Bruised, comatose, and left for dead in a gully, Liir is shattered in spirit as well as in form. But he is tended at the Cloister of Saint Glinda by the silent novice called Candle, who wills him back to life with her musical gifts.

    Vernette says: "A good writer does not a good reader make"
    "Entertaining and Enthralling"

    I listend to Wicked and had to have Son of a Witch. Excellent narration, good story telling.

    Deepak Chopra has touched millions of readers and listeners by demystifying our deepest spiritual concerns while retaining their poetry and wonder. Now he turns to the most profound mystery: What happens after we die? Is this a question we were not meant to answer, a riddle whose solution the universe keeps to itself? Chopra tells us there is abundant evidence that "the world beyond" is not separated from this world by an impassable wall; in fact, a single reality embraces all worlds, all times and places.

    Nagesh says: "Thought provoking book"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Excellent job by narrator. Extremely enlightening and informative information provided from Deepak Chopra. I bought this download after the death of my brother to use as a tool to help me develope and get a better understanding of my own beliefs on what happens to the soul after it leaves the human body. It was a good decision and great buy, for sure.
