    France's iconic queen, Marie Antoinette, wrongly accused of uttering the infamous "Let them eat cake", was alternately revered and reviled during her lifetime. For centuries since, she has been the object of debate, speculation, and the fascination so often accorded illustrious figures in history. Married in mere girlhood, this essentially lighthearted child was thrust onto the royal stage and commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in European history.

    Overall

    Wow. I loved every minute. I knew what happened in the end, but it didn't matter...until the end. A big book, unabridged, and well narrated. She does call her "marry" antoinette, but you get over it. The book seems pointed to her favor, but that is nice for a change. I am listening to it again, so I can catch all the subtlties, and names. (They wiz by). Also...Check the book out from your library, so you can see the pics)

    This book is based on Proverbs 31:10: "An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels." Thousands of women have already discovered the worth of this volume and testify to lives and marriages changed because of a commitment to the principles presented here. If this is a commitment you have made, or want to make, The Excellent Wife answers the difficult questions facing you today.

    Where does The Excellent Wife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book helped me become a more excellent wife in practical ways. I like books like this one that give you actual scripture, then apply it to multiple situations that you may deal with.


    Have you listened to any of Tamara Adams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader is very professional. An easy listen.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have an open heart, this book can teach you a lot. I have listened to it at least three times. I find something new every time, and it deepens my commitment to my husband and to Christ. This book is real spiritual food--not easy to swallow, but very filling.

    If you'd like to embark on a lifelong quest for godliness, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life will help you on your way. Based on the rich heritage left us by the early church fathers, the Puritan writers, and Jesus Christ Himself, this book takes you through a carefully selected array of disciplines including Scripture reading, prayer, worship, Scripture meditation, evangelism, serving, stewardship, Scripture application, fasting, silence and solitude, journaling, and learning.

    Overall

    This is one of the best books I have ever read on HOW to live the Christian life. The subjects covered include prayer, Bible reading, scripture memory, fasting, service, giving, worship, and more. The book gives very practical instruction on the why and how of the disciplines, while keeping the focus on growing in Christ.

  • The 9/11 Commission Report: Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks

    The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9-11 Commission, was created by congressional legislation and the signature of President George W. Bush in late 2002. This independent, bipartisan commission had the task of producing a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the attack, including preparedness and immediate response, and providing recommendations designed to guard against future attacks.

    SLP says: "Absolutely Outstanding Historical Document"
    "Excellent, Motivating"
    Overall

    This book fulfilled all of my expectations. It went into detail about what happened on 9/11--what the terrorists, our leaders, the airlines, the passengers, and the emergency responders KNEW as it was happening. It details the travel, education and background of the terrorists. It explains all of the branches of government involved in anti-terrorist activities. Can not recommend it strongly enough. There was so much detail (I think other reveiwers called it boring)but I could not stop listening. It was like a thrilling mystery that is written well enough that it doesn't matter if you already know how it ends. Very sad and hard to listen to at times, but so important! God bless those who died that day, the surviviors, and their families!

    Pride and Prejudice captures the affections of class-conscious 18th-century English families with matrimonial aims and rivalries. This story of the Bennet family and the novel's two protagonists, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, is told with a wit that author Jane Austen feared might prove "rather too light and bright, and sparkling".

    Elizabeth says: "Perfection!"
    "Good book"

    Classic, with good narration.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Zora Neale Hurston’s classic novel begs to be read aloud, and Ruby Dee answers the challenge with utter perfection, capturing the wide range of characters and their diverse accents with grace and power. Their Eyes Were Watching God is the luminous and haunting novel about Janie Crawford, a Southern Black woman in the 1930s, whose journey from a free-spirited girl to a woman of independence and substance has inspired writers and readers for close to 70 years.

    This book is fantastic. The narrator is one of the best I have ever heard. I didn't want it to end.

    What happens when an "always gets her own way" young heiress is kidnapped by a "pirate" and his motley crew then spirited away to a hidden island? Return to the days of ragtime, riches and wall street royalty in this classic tale of the "poor little rich girl" and her "bad boy" sweetheart. A delightful re-telling of the girl meets boy scenario with an "O Henry" twist.

    On a hillside near the cozy Irish village of Glennkill, the members of the flock gather around their shepherd, George, whose body lies pinned to the ground with a spade. George has cared for the sheep, reading them a plethora of books every night. The daily exposure to literature has made them far savvier about the workings of the human mind than your average sheep. Led by Miss Maple, the smartest sheep in Glennkill (and possibly the world), they set out to find George's killer.

    Maggie Tulliver, whose father owns a mill perched on the banks of the River Floss, is intelligent and imaginative beyond the understanding of her community, her relatives, and particularly her brother Tom. Despite their opposite temperaments, Maggie and Tom are united by a strong bond. But this bond suffers when Tom's sense of family honor leads him to forbid her to associate with the one friend who appreciates her intelligence and imagination.

    I liked this story alot, and will definately listen to it again. The reader is very good.

    Although originally published in 1899, this book's leading character, Edna Pontellier, could be mistaken for a modern day liberated woman, who abandons her conventional role and makes for herself a controversial and ultimately destructive life.

    "Great story, Good Reader"

    I love this book. The story moves fast, and keeps you in wondering agony to find out what is going to happen. The reader is ok. I make sure this book is always on my ipod, so I always have a good book to listen to.
