This is an overview of what the Shred Diet is about in very broad strokes. The only purpose I can see for this book is to convince someone who isn't on the actual diet, like a relative for example, that you are on a healthy plan. That way, your friends and relatives will cheer you on. As someone already on the Shred Diet, this does not help me at all. The Shred diet is great and you should go buy that book. Dr. Smith could come up with an audio book version which could explain the concept of the diet, but reading the day to day plan wouldn't make much sense. An app would be better.
This book continues the story of Veronica Mars after she's gone to college and come back to Neptune. The characters are older, but their personalities are intact. Kristen Bell is the voice of Veronica Mars, so that's great. Some of the voices she uses for the other characters are not the best. Since we know what most of the characters sound like, that made it hard to ignore. The pace, smart dialog and compelling mystery to solve are all there. A book worth listening to especially for fans of the show.
The first two books were very well written and narrated. I was concerned the third one would let me down; not so at all. The ending was very satisfying as it tied up all loose ends and I cannot say anymore without spoiling the next dear reader. Suffice it to say, this is good story telling and James Marsters puts his whole heart into his performance. There's enough material in this series for a few seasons of compelling television.
I felt sad when each character died including Macbeth and Lady M which is a testament to the actors. Macbeth was courageous to the end; a true warrior who got greedy and caused so much chaos that he had to be stopped. This production tells this story believably. It is acted well, the sound is clear and special effects add to the experience. Upon further listenings, the lesser lines of the play rise up to the surface. This is a recording that deserves to be played more than once.
Very high on the funny list of audiobooks I've listened to.
Jack is more
The scene in Jack's garden with the two brothers eating muffins kept getting funnier as it went along. I was crying so hard I had to pause twice to get a Kleenex. This play reminds me so much of not only Monty Python, but the banter between the brothers, Niles and Fraiser Crane.
Funny, classic, romantic.
For a play that debuted in London in 1773 it is still funny and easy to follow.
Charles Marlow was my favorite.
This recording made me laugh.
All the actors did a great job transporting the listener to that place in time.
Steve Martin was great, but the story hit too close to home. I've been on both sides of this situation and neither side is fun. Steve Martin's reading of it was perfect, though.
