  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King
    • Narrated By Craig Wasson

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Don't miss this trip down the Rabbit Hole."

    Last night at 2:30 AM I was crying, at 6:30 AM I laughed out loud and woke up the dog. No, I wasn't having a break down, at least not yet- I was listening to Stephen King's new book 11-22-63. Get the awards ready- to save time -just give them all to King. Out of 605 books I've downloaded from Audible since April 2005, this book is the best book, and Craig Wasson is the best narrator. I've never been a King fan, I love Literary Fiction, but the 'Time Travel' got me and I'm so glad it did. Considering the subject matter, this is not the right word -but wow-this a FUN book!

    What perfect timing to be reading this book in Dallas 2011, traveling back in time with a school teacher to change history. "Come on George -only 2 more days to save JFK." On the day John F. Kennedy was shot, the 16 year old Stephen King was sitting in the back of a hearse- How Stephen King is that! I was 19, on the golf course at UNT. I've lived in Dallas all my life with all the ghosts -the School Book Depository, Dealey Plaza, President Kennedy's motorcade route, the Grassy Knoll, the Sixth Floor Museum. "Oh you're from Dallas where Kennedy was killed."

    Who hasn't thought about a World where Kennedy lived? This book is that, and so much more. A love story, murder and the Maine town of Derry for the King devotees. I asked my husband if he wanted to listen to 11-22-63, he said, No, he didn't read Stephen King. That's what I thought. I was wrong. Don't miss this trip down the Rabbit Hole.

  • The Source Field Investigations: The Hidden Science and Lost Civilizations behind the 2012 Prophecies

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By David Wilcock
    • Narrated By David Wilcock
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    A stunning synthesis of hidden science and lost prophecies, The Source Field Investigations exposes many great secrets: DNA transformation, consciousness science, wormholes, stargate travel, sacred geometry, ancient conspiracies, multidimensional time, the Maya calendar, and a stunning new model of galactic energy fields triggering mental, biological, and spiritual evolution.More than two million people have seen David Wilcock’s incredible tour of the 2012 prophecies in his Internet documentary, The 2012 Enigma.

    guidry says: "A masterfull read"
    "David at His Best"

    19 hrs and 26 minutes spin by -and it's over before you're ready for it to end - it's that fascinating. 'The Source Field Investigations: The Hidden Science and Lost Civilizations behind the 2012 Prophecies' was written AND read by David Wilcock -the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce. No one else could have read it. Fans of David want to hear David. He doesn't disappoint. There's nothing else like it. I've listened to it twice -when you hear what he has to say- you will too.

  • Love, Service, Devotion, and the Ultimate Surrender: Ram Dass on the Bhagavad Gita

    • ORIGINAL (12 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Ram Dass
    • Narrated By Ram Dass

    The Bhagavad Gita is a gem so precious in India's spiritual treasury that many regard it not as a volume of sacred verse, but as a living manifestation of the Divine. In the summer of 1974, inside a balmy Boulder, Colorado, warehouse that served as a main hall of a fledgling Naropa Institute, some say a minor miracle occured: The reawakening of the Gita's living presence, as it unfolded in a series of wisdom teachings led by Ram Dass.

    Evelyn says: "WOW!!! AMEN"
    "Oh....Ram Das!"

    My favorite listen during my recent battle with the flu was 12 hrs of Ram Das explaining the Bhagavad Gita. (Recorded in 1974) I like the part in the Gita where Ram Das and Timothy Leary get fired from Harvard for ordering a half million dollars of LSD for research. Feeling much better now- Namaste, Granmonkie

  • A Moveable Feast: The Restored Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 42 mins)
    • By Ernest Hemingway
    • Narrated By John Bedford Lloyd
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    When Ernest Hemingway died in 1961 he had nearly completed A Moveable Feast, which eventually was published posthumously in 1964 and edited by his widow Mary Hemingway. This new special edition of Hemingway's classic memoir of his early years in Paris in the 1920's presents the original manuscript as the author intended it to be published at the time of his death.

    Julie says: "Perfect complement-Paris Wife & Midnight in Paris"
    "Long Over Due"

    Sooo sick I couldn't sleep- Sat on my couch all week with my i-pod. Spent 7 hrs in 1920's Paris with Hemingway & his unfinished novel 'A Moveable Feast' -the new Ed. LOVED every second of it -like crack cocaine to a writer. I WILL listen to it again and again. I esp enjoyed hearing his son and grandson. Thank you for this.

  • Freedom: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (24 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Jonathan Franzen
    • Narrated By David LeDoux
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world.

    Lawrence says: "Believe the Hype"
    "Oprah's Book Club pick"

    Thrilled with this book - couldn't wait for it to get here. Everything I expected and more. Hate the headlines "Oprah Winfrey Forgives Author Jonathan Franzen." He didn't do anything that needed forgiving. Listen to his essay in 'How to Be Alone' on Oprah's staff trying to film him in his old house for a video clip on her Book Club 'The Corrections' show. Since when do we have to be forgiven for wanting to keep our dignity? Don't get me wrong - I like Oprah -but I choose my own books. It kind of hurt when I saw her announce 'Freedom' as her book club pick. I am happy more people will read the book, but do we have to sell our souls to sell our books? Oh Jonathan, say it isn't so. Come back to us. You are better than this.

  • Kundalini Meditation: Guided Chakra Practices to Activate the Energy of Awakening

    • ORIGINAL (2 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Harijiwan Khalsa
    • Narrated By Harijiwan Khalsa

    For thousands of years, the yogic technology of kundalini was veiled in secrecy and passed only from master to chosen disciple. Today this sacred practice, known for it's ability to promote health, creativity and spiritual awareness, is alive and flourishing in yoga studios nationwide. Now Harijiwan Khalsa offers Kundalini Meditation, an audio program to help anyone tap into the power of this ancient tradition.

    Kathryn says: "I Love This"
    "A million beautiful vibrations."

    Excellent meditation. I especially like the swirling sounds of the gong for clearing out negativity. I have listened to the second half of this recording 9 times so far and plan to keep using it. Harijiwan Khalsa masterfully guides you through each of the Chakras. He writes on his website:
    "The universe is powered by sound. The gong is the basic creative sound. Out of the gong comes all music, all sounds, all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word. The mind was created out of this sound: it is like the father and mother together. The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind."

    I would like to have more meditations with the gong. The harmony of the mind within the waves of sound is energizing and empowering.

  • The Wife's Tale: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Lori Lansens
    • Narrated By Justine Eyre
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Mary Gooch was once young and slender and carefree. But with each passing year she's accumulated an excess of pounds and worries. On the eve of her 25th wedding anniversary, her handsome husband does not come home. Shocked out of her inertia, Mary boards a plane for the first time and begins a desperate search. With a surge of energy that she hasn't felt in years, Mary fights for her husband while she reflects upon a life half lived.

    Cassandra L. Vidler says: "Couldn't stop listening..."

    I got so frustrated with Little Nell -I mean Mary Gooch -I wanted to stop reading. But,the story is so well written I couldn't give up. I think the message of Mary and her life helped me with my life. If you're a postmenopausal woman buried alive in a pit -I recommend this book.

  • The Divided Mind

    • ABRIDGED (6 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By John E. Sarno
    • Narrated By Paul Hecht, James Boles

    The Divided Mind is the crowning achievement of Dr. John E. Sarno's long and successful career as a groundbreaking medical pioneer. While his earlier books dealt almost exclusively with musculoskeletal pain disorders, here Dr. Sarno addresses the entire spectrum of psychosomatic (mind-body) disorders.

    Alexandra says: "mind/body connection"
    "mind/body connection"

    Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 10 years ago, I can truly say- this book is a miracle. I was in horrible pain when I downloaded it yesterday. Tonight I feel like I could climb a mountain. Actually I am pretty sure I did. I thought I had cracked a rib, and I planed to see my doctor in the morning. Now, I'm going swimming instead.
    PLEASE - if you are suffering any pain - give this book 6 hours and 23 minutes of your life. You've tried everything else.

    My Mother died last year. We didn't have a good relationship. I was at the grocery store this week trying not to see all the people buying Mother's Day flowers, cards , and gifts. Is it a coincidence that I was in my bed crying on Mother's Day - using my Ten's unit for the pain? I already knew that I had a lot of unresolved issues with myself and my life, but I really thought I was getting them nicely under control.
    Because of "The Divided Mind" I feel a weight has been lifted off of me.
    I will be buying a hard copy of Dr. Sarno's book. This is an abridged version - I want to read every word.
    I know I sound insane. I remember seeing John Stossel on 20/20 saying Dr. Sarno cured his back pain. At the time I thought it was the power of suggestion.
    Well- I definitely suggest you give this book a chance to change your life. What do you have to loose - except your pain?
    I don't care if the pain comes back. I feel empowered to deal with it.
    Happy Mother's Day - I have to go have a conversation with my brain now.

  • Bad Twin

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Gary Troup
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Bad Twin is the highly-anticipated new novel by acclaimed mystery writer Gary Troup. Bad Twin was delivered to the publisher just days before Troup boarded Oceanic Flight 815, which was lost in flight from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles in September 2004. He remains missing and is presumed dead.

    mkral says: "good book"
    "Required Lost Literature"

    Bad Twin is a must for all devout Losties. The author Gary Troup is not only an anagram for Purgatory - it is also Parrot Guy - which is way more fun to contemplate. A great listen as you surf the Lost web sites trying to guess who actually wrote the book. Stephen King denies the rumors.
    Interesting mystery story nicely read. Who doesn't love a bad twin/ good twin tale full of clues about your favorite show? Cross your finger's the Castaways discover another Paul Artisan Private Investigator story.

  • Cloud Atlas

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By David Mitchell
    • Narrated By Scott Brick, Cassandra Campbell, Kim Mai Guest, and others

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    Elizabeth says: "thoroughly enjoyed"
    "Genius! Rewarding."

    Cloud Atlas is like no other book. What can possibly follow it? I think I am hypnotized. I feel sorry for my next listen.
    But - Caution - it is definitely not for everyone. Either you get it -or you don't. If you are looking for something light and easy - forget it.
    I would love to take a collage class on this book. When you finish it - you want to talk to other people who read it. You want to immediately go back and hear it again.
    All the narrators are talented, magnificent voices that bring the characters alive. Wonderful presentation. The absolute best I have encountered with an audio book. Love hearing all the strange invented words and languages pronounced aloud.
    David Mitchell has written a novel of human experience that will be studied for years to come. I know a lot of people hated this book and found it unreadable, I wish they could have stayed with it. In my opinion, nothing can compare to it. This is the finest book I have experienced in years. There are no words left exciting enough to describe it. Mitchell used them all.
