    Three time-traveling historians are visiting World War II England: Michael Davies, intent on observing heroism during the Miracle of Dunkirk; Merope Ward, studying children evacuated from London; and Polly Churchill, posing as a shopgirl in the middle of the Blitz. But when the three become unexpectedly trapped in 1940, they struggle not only to find their way home but to survive as Hitler's bombers attempt to pummel London into submission.

    Overall

    The novel should have ended satisfactorily in Blackout and started again on a new track in All Clear. I am about 1/3 into listening to the second volume, and I am bored stiff. The characters are not, in my opinion, sufficiently interesting or complex to drag them through another novel. UGH!

    Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.

    Overall

    Yup, the writer of this book is over-the-top full of Gretchen! Even with that rather annoying aspect, I have listened to this fully about 3 times. I actually bought the book. I really had to get over Gretchen in order to benefit from what are rather good messages and strategies for becoming more awake and aware, of living in a state that supports happiness. I'm grateful to Gretchen even though she subjected me to things like writing a novel while she worked out a exercise program while she was extra nice to her husband while she planned a birthday party par excellence for her mother-in-law while she created family archives, and on and on, almost all simultaneously. She breaks it up into months, but the activity is so frenetic and so intense and constant that it can be exhausting. The best part is perhaps Gretchen's honesty although even that is excessive.

  • Angels and Spirit Guides: How to Call Upon Your Angels and Spirit Guide for Help

    On this uniquely forthright and captivating program (recorded live), Sylvia Browne addresses the fascinating concepts surrounding angels and spirit guides. Every religion has angels, Sylvia tell us. Different from spirit guides, angels are spiritual messengers who are available to help us if we simply ask for their assistance.

    Overall

    This woman is weird. She is so wigged out that she doesn't even pick up on all the contradictions in her logic. She blasts New Age people for some of their beliefs then tells us that there's a "library on the other side" with certainty. She calls upon the Bible repeatedly then insists on beliefs that have no basis in scripture. She even referred to Muslims as Mohammadans which is offensive to Islamic people who worship One God not the Prophet Mohammad. She is one solid freak. That's for sure. Her voice grates on one's nerves, and she insists that it is really OK to nurture a hatred toward another, in her case, her brother-in-law. If you like angels, go with Yoxall who is soothing, peaceful and a good deal more smart than Browne.
