    The first book was so good that I ddn't want to put it down. This one was even better. The details made you imagine you were right there. I won't tell you the ending but for a while it was emotional. You become friends with the characters.

    Because she insists on fighting with words instead of her fists, 13-year-old Nita is regularly tormented by a gang of classmates. One day, running to escape their blows, she hides in the only safe place nearby: the library. When a book about wizardry catches her eye, Nita finds the help she needs in its pages. As she moves from chapter to chapter, Nita learns more sophisticated spells. Soon, stepping through a worldgate, she enters a shadowy city swirling with vicious taxicabs and carnivorous fireplugs.

    This is the first in her series. The person reading a book can make or break a good book. With this reader and the book everything kept me hooked. I didn't want to put it down.

    The Dalai Lama's direct approach, lucid style, and practical description of the essential instructions the student must follow to attain enlightenment make The Path to Enlightenment one of the most accessible introductions to Tibetan Buddhism ever published.

    Overall

    I was not sure about getting this book. I thought it might be too far above my spiritual plain if you will.
    So far I have listened to parts of the book three times, gone through the complete book twice and will probably do it again.
    The book was well spoken.
    I will say, however, I want to get the book from the library to check the spelling on some words and chants.
