    Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The best-selling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her 30s did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist - someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy's shift toward this new life was gradual -she leaned into it -but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I was interested in learning about eating vegetarian. Start a healthy diet and life style. Instead, the book is a political forum against the meat/food industry. Had I paid full price, I would be asking for a refund. There is more time spent on animal torture than giving me vegetable food ideas!


    What was most disappointing about Kathy Freston’s story?

    the time spent on statisitcs on the meat industry and diseases. Yes, I'm sure the stats are there but I did not need to hear scare tactics.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    Where does A Game of Thrones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Has to sit near the very top of my list! Great imagination


    What does Roy Dotrice bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Makes you beleive in all the characters.
