    This audiobook uncovers a myriad of false premises that are at the heart of every uncomfortable relationship issue, and guides you to a clear understanding of the powerful creative Vortex that has already assembled the relationships that you have desired. Abraham will show you how to enter that Vortex, where you will rendezvous with everything and everyone you have been looking for.

    This book clearly answered all of my questions about the Law of Attraction, how it works, how to practice and what the big deal is. The question about who Abraham is, is academic and unimportant. The ideology here is fascinating, whatever your perspective.

    Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were unlikely boyhood friends. Larry was the child of lower middle-class white parents, Silas the son of a poor, single, black mother - their worlds as different as night and day. Yet a special bond developed between them in Chabot, Mississippi. But within a few years, tragedy struck. In high school, a girl who lived up the road from Larry had gone to the drive-in movie with him and nobody had seen her again.

    Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri’s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri’s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle’s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.

    This is one to be re-read again and again as poetry. It is a melody of words, a soft slow drift down a summer stream. I have only just heard it for the first time and I'm already haunted.

    As one of the most consistently exciting writers to emerge in the last 25 years, Orson Scott Card has been honored with numerous awards, while immersing readers in dazzling worlds only he could create. Now, in Enchantment, Card works his magic as never before, transforming the timeless story of Sleeping Beauty into an original fantasy brimming with romance and adventure.

    This is actually narrated by two people. It was distracting when the same character is dramatized very differently by each of the narrators. I would have preferred if Mr. Rudnicki was permitted to narrate the whole thing. Otherwise, the story was very enjoyable.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    On the eve of a secret military operation, an assassin's bullet strikes President Seth Jerrison. He is rushed to the hospital, where surgeons struggle to save his life. At the same hospital, researcher Dr. Ranjip Singh is experimenting with a device that can erase traumatic memories. Then a terrorist bomb detonates. In the operating room, the president suffers cardiac arrest. He has a near-death experience - but the memories that flash through Jerrison's mind are not his memories.

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

    Overall, enjoyable and fast paced with an ending that will stick with you and make you ponder. This is light reading (well, okay, light LISTENING): Like a action movie. Mind candy... until the end sinks its teeth into you.


    Any additional comments?

    I had a bit of trouble with buying into one character recovering from heart surgery who, in my experience should have done nothing other than lay there with tubes and focus on trying to stay alive rather than engaging in animated conversations, and then some. Author might have visited critical care and taken notes. However, this is a fast paced read and leads to an ending that makes you think, DUDE, did you really justify THAT?
