    Gregory Maguire's Wicked Years series became national best sellers and the basis for a hit Tony-winning Broadway musical. Now, Maguire returns with the final installment in his transformative work, a thrilling and compulsively readable saga in which the fate of Oz is decided at last.

    Would you try another book from Gregory Maguire and/or John McDonough?

    I love Maguire, but I really wish he had been the reader on this book, like he was for book two.


    Any additional comments?

    I was greatly looking forward to the last of the Wicked series, and the promise of loose ends being tied up. Yes, many loose ends find closure, but the ending left me a bit.... unfulfilled. No spoliers here. However the ending and some of the events leading up to it just felt empty. Book one, the ending being a bit ambiguous I felt added to the story. Book two felt the same. Book Three had the promise of more to come. However with book four stumbling back into an open ending, it was just frustrating. I do have a suspicion that if Maguire had been the narrartor as he had been on book two, perhaps there might have been a bit less... empty. Of course though that's speculation. Still a good read. However I'll be honest that I am disappointed.

    In this audiobook, Dr. Wanis will give you the keys to finding love and happiness once again. Australian Patrick Wanis, PhD, is a renowned life coach, human behavior and relationship expert, clinical hypnotherapist, and author with extensive credits worldwide. Much of his work has focused on examining the role of the mind, body, and physiology on behavior and psychological functioning. Wanis holds a PhD in health psychology from the Open International University for Alternative Medicine.

    Overall

    I really like Patrick Wanis and I feel this audio has very good information with moving past things once a relationship closes. However the one thing I do not like about this is the woman doing the interview. "Honeybee." She seems hung up on the thought of someone not being "Worthy of you." Every time Wanis tries to direct her away from that line of thinking, she clings to it with such dedication he eventually just gives up. I feel the same info just with Wanis giving it would be much more benifical without the distracting side comments from "Honeybee."

    This audiobook has inspired thousands of people around the world to find a sense of purpose and belonging. It asserts that life is not a battle but a game of giving and receiving, and that whatever we send out into the world will eventually be returned to us. This little book will help you discover how your mind and its imaging faculties play leading roles in the game of life.

    "Read too fast"
    Overall

    I have a couple versions of "The Game of Life." Frankly the audio is read so fast it's almost difficult to absorb and starts to grate on the nerves after awhile. I'd look at getting the abridged CD or perhaps looking for a volunteer version online, vs. spending the $3 here.
