I enjoyed both the book and the reader very much. It was like a combination of The Omnivore's Dilemma and Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Mineral. The author perfectly captures the somewhat obsessive nature of a dyed-in-the-wool gardener, while always wryly aware of how crazy some of her behavior appears to others. Lovely!
Grabbed me from the opening, and had me totally involved til the end (and even after!) Deals with dilemmas that all of us face every day, though they are here heightened to their ultimate levels. Who are we most responsible to? How do we show our love and support to our children? All this wrapped up in amazing court room drama, AND read by one of the best...a must listen!
My only quibble is that the author's last twist may have been one too many. Regardless, I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a summer listen with some meat.
I kept waiting for something or someone in this book to engage me -- it never happened. Great vocabulary, though!
A dark, supernatural mystery with flashes of humor. Should appeal to anyone who likes the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris.
Although the content is good, I was having a problem with the high speed reading. Using the -1 setting on my iriver solved the problem and I enjoyed this very much. A nice update on what has been going in studies on consciousness. I was particularly interested to hear about the new, more sophisticated methods of biofeedback.
This is listening at its best. Hearing the voices of those that Katy is guiding through the questions change from immense pain and sadness to laughter and playfullness was so powerful that I have listened to this over and over during the past few weeks. Their stories and the work they did were deeply touching and helped me to get through some issues that had been very difficult for me. Thank you Katie and Audible!
