    What could Carl Reiner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He must have tons of good anecdotes to talk about. Why didn't he use them?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not lively enough, not very enthusiastic.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Carl too old to do this. Perhaps would have been better 30 years ago.h

  • Switching Time: A Doctor's Harrowing Story of Treating a Woman with 17 Personalities

    Story
    (170)

    Switching Time is the first story centering on multiple personality disorder to be told by the treating physician. It is the incredible saga of a young woman stranded in unimaginable darkness who, in order to survive, created 17 different versions of herself. One by one, Karen's "alters" began showing themselves: men, women, young boys, a toddler, black, white, vicious, nurturing, prim, licentious. And their "stepping out" confronted Baer with the challenge of a lifetime.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Switching Time to be better than the print version?

    With subject matter such as this it is helpful to cover it in audio to grasp the characters especially with a larger number.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found it realistic to know what the professional was thinking and feeling about his patient
    as their therspitic relationship developed.


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

    I don't believe I have.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I enjoyed it a bit everyday.

    Story
    (14)

    If you are eager to read John and Patsy Ramsey's new release about the mysterious death of their daughter JonBenet, you won't want to miss Perfect Murder, Perfect Town. Schiller creates a portrait of an inscrutable family thrust under the spotlight of public suspicion and an affluent, tranquil city torn apart by a crime it was unprepared to deal with.

    Christine says: "all police work"
    "Diane's review"

    "In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I dont think of myself as a victim. I survived...."

    "Diane's review"
    Overall

    Authors (including Jaycee) often are not as good at reading as professional readers are. It seemed Jaycee didn't always put emphasis on the correct words as she read.
    Emphasis on thinking about her mother over done.
    Editors should have done a better job with this.
    "Good For Her" that Jaycee made this effort and told "her story" as only she could.
