    Story
    "I have already used this to improve my marriage!"

    Sound advice that works--not a gimmick, but a description of real principles that the author has distilled down to five love languages. I appreciate the author reading his own work--I think that a "good" reading by a sincere author beats a "great" reading by an unaffiliated narrator, since there is passion and knowledge and authenticity from the author. I believe in this so much that I have purchased the book, CD's, or mp3 audio files of this work for 7 of my siblings and in-laws.

    Story
    "A bit too much church-y-ness to be taken seriousl."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Separation of church and psychology. This book had a plethora of 'parables' but no real tools that I think most of us can adopt ino our own lives.


    What could Gary Chapman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't think someone who sees religion as such a central life/love ingredient could write a book without all the preaching.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The reading was fair to midland.

    "Burning policy"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoyed it very much that wasn't the problem.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was fine as it was.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not at all.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    my issue was not with the story, it was with Audible's restriction of only being able to burn it once onto disc. I did this but it didn't burn well, it skipped and dragged so I wasn't able to use the cd.

    An avid reader of all kinds of books. I love classic science fiction writers like Frank Herbert, Isaac Asimov, and Douglas Adams. But I am, in fact, a "leaf on the wind" when it comes down to it.

    Story
    "The 5 Love Languages"
    Would you listen to The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts again? Why?

    This is a helpful listen to tweak any Love Relationship. I would highly reccomend it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was pleased to discover the premise of the text was not based upon religion. The concepts were understandable and readily employable and made common sense.


    What about Gary Chapman’s performance did you like?

    I always enjoy it when the author reads his own text.

    Story
    "A simple way to start communication"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recomment this book to others, especially my family. It makes it easy to open lines of communication that can help them feel appreciated and loved.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the stories about other couples that are struggling to understand each other and how they were able to overcome years of communication issues.


    What did you learn from The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts that you would use in your daily life?

    I think what became most obvious is that we try to love others how we would like to be loved. I need to ask each person what makes them feel loved and do that everyday.
