Normal on the outside, something else on the inside. Kinda like a banana!

    Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, The Anatomy of Peace shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Anatomy of Peace to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio edition to be better than the print version in all aspects but one. The audio edition has to describe the diagrams that are in the print edition. This is not a big factor if you can draw them out while listening, but a little harder while driving.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Like any good story this story teaches you while entertaining you. I liked how the author intertwined the lessons within the characters interactions.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver's voice is pleasant, and handled most of the voices well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The lessons this book is trying to teach you can have a profound impact on you (if you are willing to really, really listen).

  • Ready Player One

    Story
    (13977)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story
    If you could sum up Ready Player One in three words, what would they be?

    80's Nerd God. There were so many references to the 80's that took me back to my teenage years.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say Og (Ogden Morrow). Laid back and throws an awesome party. He's a mix of Gary Gygax and Steve Wozniak.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The epic throwdown between Ultraman and MechaGodzilla. What can I say...I grew up on Godzilla movies.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It would be a tag line from another 80's movie.
    "There can be only one"


    Any additional comments?

    One of my favorite books. One of the few books I would listen to again.
    Crazy, brilliant, fun.

    A.D. 2088. Missionary daughter Abigail Caldwell emerges from the jungle for the first time in her thirty-four years, the sole survivor of a mysterious disease that killed her village. Abby goes to America, only to discover a nation where Christianity has completely died out. A curious message from her grandfather assigns her a surprising mission: re-introduce the Christian faith in America, no matter how insurmountable the odds.

    Mike says: "An intersection of science and belief."
    "An intersection of science and belief."
    Overall

    I found this book to be an interesting intersection of science and belief. Would you choose to believe in man and live forever without God, or believe in God and live forever after death.

    Being a software engineer the thought of living as a software program gives me chills (because I know how buggy software can be).
