    Every human journey is filled with emotional tunnels: the loss of a loved one or end of a relationship, aging and illness, career disappointments, or just an ongoing sense of dissatisfaction with life. Society tends to view these "dark nights" in clinical terms as obstacles to be overcome as quickly as possible.

    Got through the first few hours ok but then it got very confusing and I just gave it up.

    Thursday Next, the forthright and unstoppable detective of Jasper Fforde's first two novels, The Eyre Affair and Lost in a Good Book, rides again in The Well of Lost Plots. Get ready for time travel, adventure, mystery, romance, and crime in a literary caper that pokes fun at fiction itself.

    For some reason I did not find this as good as the first two. Maybe just getting tired of the concept.

    The health you enjoy today, and for the rest of your life, begins with your next breath. In fact, breathing is so crucial to your body's ability to heal and sustain itself that Dr. Andrew Weil says: "If I had to limit my advice on healthier living to just one tip, it would be simply to learn how to breathe correctly."

    Robert says: "Very good one!!"
    "Better read"
    Overall

    I should have got the print not the audio for this one. You really need to practice what the Doctor is talking about and that's not such a good thing to do while driving.

Author Nicholas Boothman, a lecturer and licensed master practitioner of neurolinguistic programming, believes yes! He introduces a revolutionary approach to face-to-face communication that will help anyone succeed at making meaningful, and immediate, connections.

    Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

    Jesse says: "Changed my thoughts"
    "Confusing"

    I've watched Dr.Dyer on TV and liked him but I found this book very confusing.

    Known for his comic sense, Earl Derr Biggers was one of the foremost writers of mystery and detective stories in this country. To his friends he was known for his comic sense. Seven Keys to Baldpate was his first novel and became extremely popular. In it, a famous author visits a closed summer resort at Baldpate Mountain in the middle of winter. He is looking for peace and quiet so that he can write his next book.

    Glenn says: "Farce"
    "Good escapism"
    Overall

    Downloaded this book in spite of the low "stars" at the time and I'm glad I did. Pure escapism, of course but great fun. Well done and well read. To each his own, I guess.

  • Bleak House

    Story

    In its oppressive atmosphere of fog, mist, and mud, nothing conjures up the dreary days of November and its "implacable" weather like the celebrated opening of Bleak House. The plot concerns a long-running legal dispute (Jarndyce and Jarndyce) that has far-reaching consequences for all involved. Dickens' assault on the flaws of the British judiciary system is based in part on his own experiences as a law clerk.

    Jas says: "Listen to the sample first"
    "Great Listen"
    Overall

    Bleak House is a satire which looks at the extremely complicated legal system in London as it eats away at the minds and talents of the greedy and nearly destroys the lives of many innocent people. Anyone who has been involved in a legal battle even in these modern times will certainly appreciate it.
    Listening to BLEAK HOUSE is like going to an immense party where the guests are as varied and colorful a group of people as you will ever meet.
    There are over fifty characters in the book so you never know who you may show up next. However, they are all delightful. A thoroughly entertaining and engrossing listen: poignant, suspenseful and unforgettable. A great work from a master storyteller! Well read, too. Five stars!
