    In Three Magic Words, you will learn of the unlimited power that is yours. You will learn how you can turn this power to work for you, here on earth, to make your life majestic and overflowing with good. Three Magic Words is not a religion or a sect or a society. In its entirety it is a series of essays aimed at revealing to you your power over all things. You will learn that there is only one mover in all creation and that mover is thought.

    Story

    I find any theory that blames all illness on a lack of faith, weakness of spirit, or just plain "negative self talk" to be offense and absurd. I thought I was going to be reading a guide to self-improvement.. The author claims that any physical imperfection is due to weak spirit. So a child born with a birth defect is at fault for his or her own situation? Or maybe we should blame the parents, because they don't have enough sadness, fear, or stress to deal with; let's throw in some guilt to top it off. And if they just had deeper faith, it would all go away? I never even finished the first chapter, which is replete with anecdotes of "miracles" that are undocumented and probably figments of the author's imagination. Google the story of the man whose cancer was cured because he believed the doctor's thermometer was a power radiation device and see what you find. Had such a thing actually occurred, at least one medical journal would have published it. Otherwise, where did the author find the evidence that this had actually occurred? Anyone can make up miraculous stories and pretend they really happened, but I for one don't want to pay money to read any of them unless they're properly classified as fiction. Shame on the author and the publisher, and shame on me for trying to read this tripe for as long as I did! For the first time ever, I will be asking Audible to take back this book and restore my credit.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Story

    Ever thought of King Lear as a comedy? Well, I'm sure no one except Christopher Moore ever did, and we are all the better for it. Add the incomparable performance of narrator Euan Morton, and the result is one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've listened to in the past 20 years! Oh, if only I had gotten to read this version of King Lear in high school's English Lit class. . . But alas (as The Bard would say), it's too racy for high school. Warning, if you're easily offended by baudy humor, this may not be your cup of tea. But if a little ribald hilarity doesn't send you screaming for cover, you will enjoy every minute of this book. I know I did!

    Nilly is the new kid in school, but he doesn’t let that or his tiny size slow him down. After all, he has his smart mouth, quick wits, and fearless nature to see him through. Nilly quickly makes two special friends: Lisa, a girl whose own best friend has just moved, and Doctor Proctor, who has (1) a tragic past (including lost love and betrayal) and (2) a talent for inventing things like industrial strength fart powder.

    Would you listen to Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder again? Why?

    I downloaded this story because I am huge a fan of Jo Nesbo's crime stories. I have read every Harry Hole novel I can find translated to English. But I have to say, it was totally unexpected and refreshing to find that such a masterful storyteller of the dark side of people also has within him this hilarious set of tales to tell. It's a great read for those days when life is getting you down. Some might call it a kid's book, and certainly children will find it entertaining. But it really appeals to the kid in all of us.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I laughed out loud.


    What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His vocal expressions of awe and wonder add a whole different dimension.
