  • The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 40 mins)
    • By Deepak Chopra
    • Narrated By Daniel Passer
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Best-selling author Deepak Chopra states that within each of us is a book of mysteries waiting to be opened, and when it is, the secrets of the universe will be revealed to us. The secret of love is to be found nowhere but within us, along with the secrets of healing, compassion, and faith, and the most elusive secret of all: who we truly are.

    Miriam says: "Enlightening all the way through!"
    "above expectation"

    I appreciate this book . I also own the hardcopy, but prefer the spoken word in this case, also because it is narrated by a person whose first language is English. The information is extremey worthwile, and I enjoy reading the book in addition to listening the audio version. I highly recomend this title; I find it the best of all his books.

  • Abounding Grace: An Anthology of Wisdom

    • ABRIDGED (3 hrs)
    • By M. Scott Peck
    • Narrated By M. Scott Peck, Arthur Morey

    Abounding Grace will make you think. It will make you laugh. It will bring you a new appreciation of your existence. And, in the end, it will give you a great gift: the capacity to perceive as gifts your own virtues and the other blessings of your life.

    "Scott's as good as ever"

    I'm a fan of all of Scott's works, and this was his last audiorecording. It was recorded when he was already ill and didn't have the energy to record this book all by himself. That's why he had someone else speak about half of this recording. Since I like Scott's way of presenting his own work, I thought this was a pity. Still, this is a very worthwile listen for anyone, and certainly not to be missed by the fans of Scott Peck.

  • The Cruelest Miles: The Heroic Story of Dogs and Men in a Race Against an Epidemic

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By Gay Salisbury, Laney Salisbury
    • Narrated By Barrett Whitener

    The year is 1925. It is sixty degrees below zero. The wind sweeps tons of snow over the deep-frozen Alaskan landscape. The nearest railhead is seven hundred miles away. Airplanes cannot fly. The way to Nome is blocked by a treacherous frozen sound, an icebound port, and mountains to the west. But there is a diphtheria epidemic in Nome. The children need serum from the outside world if they are to survive. Their only hope is a few chosen Eskimo drivers and their teams of dogs.

    Susan Carter says: "The Cruelest Miles Makes Exciting Reading"
    "Just started listening- looking forward to more!"

    I've listened to 90 min. of this title, and can already say that it's going to be one of my favorite listens so far.
    The story and Alaska's scenery are wonderfully worded, and all is beautifully narrated.
    Keep you posted!

  • Middlesex

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Jeffrey Eugenides
    • Narrated By Kristoffer Tabori

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "The best sofar!"

    Really love this book-I'm still listening to it, starting part 2 soon. The narrator does a wonderful job, accents and all. Great story-a winner allover!
