    In this gripping first novel, a young girl, orphaned when her mother murders an ex-lover, endures the shuffle of a foster child's life. Oprah enjoyed her book club pick so much that she narrates the audiobook edition!

    Overall

    I was caught up in the rhythm and language of this book from the first paragraph...In its original form. Too much is lost in the edited version. Oprah has a very rich voice, but I think the maturity and depth is wrong for this book. I hope Audible will post a different version when/if one is available.

  • Engaged Writing: Hypnosis for writers; to enhance long term inspiration

    Using a beach visualization and the metaphor of surfers on the waves, this hypnosis program increases the writer's connection to his or her work, and to the inspiration that fuels it. It is especially useful for those who start off with a bang, and then lose their original vision and enthusiasm as they get into the heart of the project. The session was created and recorded by award-winning writer and clinical hypnotist Maggie Dubris.

    Overall

    This creativity series is great. I've written the creator to see if I can purchase the whole collection from her directly. I just purchased the "Rainforest" hypnosis CD from ITunes. I specifically purchased it from ITunes to avoid the jarring audible.com voice over tag that plays at the end of the recordings. I found that the ITunes version has an even longer and more jarring Audible.com message than the ones purchased directly on the Audible site.

    I often listen to audio books to get to sleep and I can't tell you how many times that ending tag has jarred me awake. It's so frustrating.
    It's especially frustrating when listening to a CD on meditation or hypnosis. The Audible.com ending is recorded in a shrill voice that's many octaves higher than the base recording.

    I highly recommend Maggie's hypnosis recordings. I would love it, if Audible would stop including that jarring voice over tag at the end of all of its recordings.
