    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook is geared toward girls, but my six year old rough and tumble son absolutely loves it. After a day of hard play, it puts him right to sleep. It does the same for my nine year old daughter--neither of them likes to fall asleep without one of the Kerr meditation CDs in the background. We own all of them, and this is our favorite. We also enjoy the bedtime one, and our third favorite is the enchanted one. They are all excellent, though.

    I also purchased the teen one--the kids aren't interested at all, and I listened to it myself and found I have a strong preference for the children's ones.

    As an adult, I have found that falling asleep to these tracks is just so soothing. There is something about imagining this simple and beautiful imagery as I fall asleep that I look forward to--it cannot be captured in adult meditation CDs.

    We have all listened to the Kerr CDs for four months now, every night, and I consider them worth their weight in gold for all three of us.

    I wanted to leave a review for this one in particular, because the amazon reviews are not accurate. I think amazon got their links mixed up or something as this is not pregnancy meditation, (though I suspect it would be calming and soothing to absolutely anyone, age 1-100, who listened to it, pregnant or not!)

    The music in the background is consistently beautiful and relaxing as well.

    Thank you, Christiane, for putting out such quality products. I have bought all six of your CDs (the four here and the two on amazon as mp3s) and I appreciate the work you put into them. We would love it if you released new ones--the more story based they are, the better. I like the meditation aspect of the CDs, but I think the real strength and difference, the thing that makes these stand out, is the simplicity of the imagery and the peaceful stories (stories with zero tension, zero drama or problems, just happy stories of exploring imaginary worlds). That is the strength of these meditative audiobooks. I'd love to see more of that awesome creativity demonstrated here and in the bedtime stories one in particular in future releases.

    I never thought a one hour audiobook could be worth a credit, but since we have listened to it at least 30 times already (we often fall asleep with it on as we are all asleep very quickly), it is more than worth the price!

    Once the most feared member of an Italian Mafia crime family, Gabriel Moretti returns to New York at the request of his mentor, Russian crime boss Vasily Tarasov. Vasily needs someone he can trust in Seattle to protect his estranged daughter, Eva Jacobs, while he avenges the murder of the young woman’s mother. Gabriel is unstoppable in a fight, whether he’s using fists, blades, or bullets; but innocent, onyx-haired Eva may just be the most dangerous - and beautiful - thing he’s come up against.

    Story

    The story was engaging and kept my interest. Thank you!

    The narrator was EXCELLENT at varied male voices, especially the strong, dominant alpha male ones.

    All the women kind of sounded the same, though, kind of like a man pretending to be a woman. Of course that's what it was, but with many male narrators I just forget or don't notice. I think because his voice was so deep it was extra hard for him to make female voices work... But I'd suggest in the future he not try so hard to reach for the female voices and just be a little more natural in pitch with them. It was quite distracting, listening to the female voices, though forgivable, as the narration/acting overall was excellent.

    Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri’s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri’s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle’s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.

    Story

    I am quite attached to Nick Podehl as a narrator, so I was hesitant to buy this audio book with Rothfuss narrating. I don't regret it as he did a good job. Not the great job Podehl does, but a good job.

    The story was .... well, i had to keep coming back to it in pieces, but I did find myself drawn to doing so. I wanted to hear more, and to know more. The way Rothfuss describes the story at the beginning and the end is quite endearing, too.

    Story

    Listen to a sample before you buy. I'm sure whether or not her voice appeals is entirely individual.

    I read this book on kindle and loved it, so decided almost two years later to add narration and listen again, as it is a story well worth revisiting. However, I didn't make it past the second hour. Her voice was too fast, too cheerful, and her rendition of TJ (the male character) was entirely too feminine and too close to how she portrayed the main character.

    I'd recommend reading this one. I'm an audible fan through and through, and I am disappointed in the choice of narrator here. It's not that the narrator is bad--I'm sure she'd do a great job narrating teenage girl voices, books that are meant to be light and humorous. This just wasn't a good fit.
