  • The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery that Holds the Secret to America's Future

    Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

    Story

    This book has been a best seller and I have been interested. The format of the book suits very well as an audio book. I wonder if it would be little better with more separation of the voices. In the beginning of the book I felt that the main character did not feel like a journalist, he was quite naive but I think the book got better later.

    This book is not so much a prophetic book as it mainly gives an explonation why things has happened. Perhaps many people do not know the Bible so this can be a challange for your mind. There was new information for me and new point of view. So it is an interesting book and I recommend it.

    Does the idea of intimacy with God seem farfetched and irrelevant to your real, daily life? Ever wonder if your own “little story” has any significance in the larger scheme of things, or why God’s Word doesn’t seem to speak to you? In Close Enough to Hear God Breathe, listeners will encounter a rich message that recounts the story of a God who has been inviting all of humanity, and each individual, into his tender embrace since time began.

    Story

    The title is very good and the author uses many examples from his family life to illustrate how we can get closer to God. But then I am not sure if I like to hear all the time what is children did when they were younger, I was looking for little bit more solid teaching. The author seems to like telling stories and I am sure many listeners like them, but this time it did not attract me so much.

    Story

    When Harriet Vane attends her Oxford reunion, known as the "Gaudy", the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies, and poison-pen letters - including one that says, "Ask your boyfriend with the title if he likes arsenic in his soup." Some of the notes threaten murder and one of them involves a long Latin quotation, which makes Harriet suspect that the perpetrator is probably a member of the Senior Common Room. But which of the apparently rational, respectable dons could be committing such crazed acts?

    Story

    I do like lord Peter Wimsey books and I think this is second best book in my list. This recording is a short version with multiple talents and in a few places I miss the book. I think it is a good production and I really enjoyed it. I think this kind of audio is more suited to listen at home and not so well during commuting.

    By the way if you like to know what is the best lord Peter book in my list, it is "Busman's Honeymoon". Too bad that it is not available in Audible.com.

    These three short stories display the talents of Dorothy L. Sayers and those of her irrepressible detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, to the best effect. A house numbered 13 in a street of even numbers, something nasty in the furnace-room, and a dream about a game of chess - from each of these disturbing puzzles, Wimsey slowly but surely extracts a number of vital clues.

    Story

    This book has three stories and they are all very interesting and not violent. I think the writer was searching some new forms of expression so the stories are not your ordinary detective stories. I also like to hear more about the life of Peter Winsey.

    I like this also as an audio book because one story lasts my journey to work.

    The inspiration for the hit Fox series Bones, Kathy Reichs explores another high-stakes crime from today's headlines, in a case that lands forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan in the middle of a gruesome international scheme.

    Story

    I have watched and liked the TV-series Bones but this was my first book behind that production. The book is quite different than the TV-show and at first it confused me a little. I must say the dark tones in this book made it little heavy to listen, but story was good. The love life of Dr. Brennan was quite prominent, perhaps too much for me. This book made me a little sad and it was depressing. Some medical terms were little difficult to follow in an audio book for me.

    I think I need to find an other book of Kathy Reichs, perhaps a book where sun is shining.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Shack?

    This is a really captivating story, it is very hard to pause it. It feels there is something even more exciting behind the corner. Like many others I gave some books as a present to my friends. It is well written.

    Sometimes I started to wonder that is it correct theology but I think the main point is not that. The story made me think in new ways. I think I will listen this again, perhaps several times.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Perhaps the epilogue as it is interesting to hear story behind story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This did touch me deeply.
