  • This Side of Paradise

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 18 mins)
    • By F. Scott Fitzgerald
    • Narrated By Brian D'eon
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s pseudo- autobiographical first novel. It describes life at Princeton among the glittering, bored, and disillusioned “lost generation” of post World War1 America. Published in 1920, when he was just 23, the novel was an overnight success and propelled Fitzgerald to instant stardom as spokesman of the Jazz Age.

    Parola138 says: "pre-WWI joy"
    "A Joy-Ride through Pompous Asseville"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, It was a wonderful listen. A story written by one pompous ass about other pompous asses. Not as good as The Great Gatsby but definitely up there.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Side of Paradise?

    It was a short book. I liked the whole journey. I will be buying more of F. Scott Fitzgerald's work and I will read this one again. What I like best is this man knows how to tell and great story with minimal words.

    What about Brian D'eon’s performance did you like?

    He was perfection. The accent and the attitude. He had it all.

    If you could rename This Side of Paradise, what would you call it?

    Leave the title. It is perfection. F Scott Fitzgerald picks great titles.

    Any additional comments?

    Read it. It is part American history most people don't experience first hand.

  • Anne of Green Gables

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By L.M. Montgomery
    • Narrated By Barbara Caruso
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    On Prince Edward Island, aging siblings Mathew and Marilla Cuthbert decide to adopt a boy to help with chores around the farm. But when Mathew arrives at the train platform, the only living creature in sight, legs dangling from the piles of shingles where she sits, is a freckled, green-eyed, redheaded little girl. Mathew senses immediately that life at Green Gables is going to be very different. And how right he is.

    Catherine says: "kindred spirit"
    "Glorious Trip Down Memory Lane."
    Where does Anne of Green Gables rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is definitely up in top. I have read a lot of Audio books. This was my grandmother's beloved book when I was a child. I still have it. What a flood of memories listening to this caused. Amazingly unexpected, like running into an old childhood friend.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anne of course but they are all wonderful characters.

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

    I have not but she is wonderful.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Glorious Trip Down Memory Lane.

    Any additional comments?

    Read it.

  • Awakening the Goddess Within

    • ORIGINAL (1 hr and 10 mins)
    • By Deepak Chopra, Agapi Stassinopoulos
    • Narrated By Deepak Chopra, Agapi Stassinopoulos

    In this audio program, Agapi talks about her spiritual journey of bringing the goddesses off the pedestals of our everyday life and to owning them as part of our self and our psyche in an everyday way.

    Elizabeth says: "Absolutely Beautiful"
    "Absolutely Beautiful"
    If you could sum up Awakening the Goddess Within in three words, what would they be?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Artemis. She is my hero.

  • Finding Your Sacred Contract

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Caroline Myss
    • Narrated By Caroline Myss

    This workshop, recorded live in Chicago, Illinois, focuses on how to find your life's mission, or "Sacred Contract." By coming to know your mission, you can live your life in a way that makes best use of your energy. Finding out where you invest your energetic currency can show you how to manage your power as opposed to being managed by it.

    Gene says: "Visual required"
    "Message Important: Messenger Not So Much"
    Would you listen to Finding Your Sacred Contract again? Why?

    I will give it another listen because I find the information presented in the book interesting and actually very important in the growth of the soul.

    I feel like a lot of significant information is missed when one listens to a lecture but arent't present at it. You can't see the slides or powerpoint presentation that the people at the lecture can so you are left at a disadvantage.

    I read Archetypes before this one on Sacred Contracts. Archetypes was very detailed and I did not find anything new in this book but Archetypes was written after Sacred Contracts to expand on the material and you can't really find your contract without knowing your archetypes.

    Advice: Read Sacred Contracts first then Archetypes.

    Would you recommend Finding Your Sacred Contract to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would. The material is so important for growth it is definitely worth a listen.

    What didn’t you like about Caroline Myss’s performance?

    The author/presenter's voice is so grating and tinged with arrogance and is so annoying that it detracts from the presentation. She keeps people at a distance with her tone so she does not have to defend her self against those who might question her.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not in this one, read Archetypes after. You will be moved when she is speaking about yours. You will hear the voice of God under the grating, condescending tone of the speaker.
