    Mindfulness has been shown in clinical trials to be an effective way of reducing stress. It is a form of focused awareness that helps to prevent the runaway thinking that gives rise to physical and emotional hyper-arousal. The two meditations in this audiobook help us to develop this transformative quality of mindfulness and to practice acceptance of our present-moment experience in a non-judgmental way - in particular, with their emphasis is on learning to "be comfortable with discomfort".

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

    I have some of his other meditations, and I still want more! They're all slightly different and sort of the same - in a good way.

    Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour, and wit. Maybe Adrian was more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He’s had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

    Story
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Well-written


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The intonation was a little off sometimes, particularly when the narrator was speaking as one of the young characters.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    None of the characters were particularly interesting or consistent, and I felt like the story never really got started.
