    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I like a more educational format. With clear goals and steps to achieve them in a concise format. One of the things that particularly bother me is when authors like this use 50 words when 5 will make their point.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am seriously looking for a good strength training book.


    What didn’t you like about Marla Dee’s performance?

    Too touchy feely for me. And I kept feeling like she was selling me her product. The idea was good but the delivery and tone of voice left me wanting to smack her. I couldn't even finish the book. The only reason I didn't return it was that I did find some of her suggestions useful and I found her tone a bit condescending. I sure hope she is not reading this review. Because she seems like a very nice person and I don't want to hurt her feelings.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes some useful suggestions.


    Any additional comments?

    I love audible.... it has seriously added an entire dimension to my life.

    Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.... Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle.

    Where does Cinder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top of my list


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really liked how I couldnt figure out ahead of time what was going to happen next. I mean Ive read many versions of Cinderella, but this story is my favorite now.


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

    I would have loved to listen to this all at once... but unfortunately I have a life.


    Any additional comments?

    This narrator is definitely my favorite.
