I think need to read it to get recipes. Also doesn’t really explain more background on the diet and why and how it works. Lastly, would like more personal connection to those for whom thus diet worked longterm.

At the age of 36, on the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated.

I was so moved by this book. What great insights on both medical care and humanity. I couldn't help but cry throughout. Paul seems like an amazing person and I think we are blessed to have had him in this world and to be able to connect with him through this book. Thank you.

Anne Lamott meets Elizabeth Gilbert in this inspirational, side-splittingly funny exploration of the power of living with love, forgiveness, and honesty. Glennon Melton became a sensation when her personal essays started going viral. Giving language to our universal (yet often secret) experiences, her hilarious and poignant observations were read by millions, shared among friends, discussed at water coolers, quoted in The New York Times, and have inspired a social movement.

Bold writer, brave woman! To share so much personal experiences, emotions and lessons learned takes guts. Reading it makes you feel human and understood. At times, some of the details about little things like how she vacuums seem unnecessary while at other times you yearn for more on the real substantive items, but overall she connects well with the reader and has wisdom to share that can help women. I recommend it!

America's Bitter Pill is Steven Brill's much-anticipated, sweeping narrative of how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing - and failing to change - the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. Brill probed the depths of our nation's healthcare crisis in his trailblazing Time magazine Special Report, which won the 2014 National Magazine Award for Public Interest.

It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

Love the book - great story that keeps you engaged every page. But hate the woman's voice - she sounds way too into herself from the very beginning, and that's when we are supposed to like her the most. The female reader sounded so arrogant it bothered me the entire time, until the very end when it aligned much better.

What did you like best about this story?

Didn't know where story would take you.

What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

Julia was too arrogant in first half of the book - so much so it made me dislike the character. She overdid intonation.

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

Yes, but couldn't
