Whether you believe it or not, whether you accept it or not, there are some things in the world that cannot be attributed to anything other than paranormal activity. Some spirits have been through tragedy so heartbreaking, they are trapped within that singular instance that stole their lives away - they relive that moment over and over and over. The world is an infinite place. We don't entirely understand it - we believe in what we see and what we hear and try to make sense of that alone.

These are more or less stories of torture throughout history and then the hauntings afterward. Some of these stories are very brutal and deal with children and that's something I just can't stomach. These aren't the type of ghost stories I was expecting at all. I really hated this and I didn't care for the narrator either. I wish I could return this book. I couldn't even get halfway through it.

These prayers are beautiful and well written. The narrator's accent (Irish?) just adds to the beauty of them. The print version would be nice to have just to read aloud and to choose which prayer you want in a certain time in your life.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, if they like time travel stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Traveler's Secret?

Probably the part where the twins still existed when their mother was dead.

Which scene was your favorite?

There were so many, but one was when they realized that the 3 men weren't dead, and they could no longer charge the kids with murder.

Another was whenever the albino girl showed up, she'd talk in that eerie voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending. It left it open to where I'm anxious to see what happens in the next book!

Any additional comments?

Much better than I thought it would be, and the narrator was pretty good too.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

What did you love best about The Art of Racing in the Rain?

The ending with the little boy.

What did you like best about this story?

When Enzo dreams that he testifies in court. So hilarious!

What does Christopher Evan Welch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He performs all of the characters quite well and brings the story to life through them. He's a fantastic narrator.

If you could take any character from The Art of Racing in the Rain out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Enzo, because he's a dog and he's also a sweetheart.

Any additional comments?

This book touched my soul and very few have that affect on me. You will fall head over heels in love with Enzo. It's a beautiful and touching story that will leave you satisfied in the end.

Velma and Louie are in their 70s...and in love with each other. They met at the mailboxes in a retirement home in Memphis, Tennessee. But trouble is on the horizon for our sprightly senior citizens. The nursing home is closing, and their children are bound and determined to separate them - keeping Velma in Memphis with her nervous Elvis Presley-impersonator, car salesman son, Farvis, and sending Louie to South Carolina with his daughter, Jeneeva, who works in a sex toy factory pouring plastic into "pecker molds", as Velma calls it. But Velma and Louie ain't gonna take this kind of treatment from their nutty offspring....

It was supposed to be a place of healing - a place where doctors and nurses dedicated their lives to helping the sick and injured. Nobody wants to imagine a massacre at a hospital. So at Newton Memorial, staff and patients are left frightened and stunned after the brutal shooting death of Dr. John Connor and an attending nurse. And when Dr. Jack Norris is asked by police to help with the investigation, he will stop at nothing to figure out how a peaceful patient was suddenly turned into a violent killer.

Would you consider the audio edition of First Do No Harm to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily, sometimes you just want to read it yourself and imagine your own voices. I will probably end up reading the print version too.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack. Several reasons, but mainly because he was smarter than anyone else in my opinion.

What three words best describe Duane Berg’s voice?

I'm not sure. He wasn't bad, but I just had a hard time listening for really long periods.

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

No, it was too long.

Any additional comments?

For a medical mystery this is a really good book! The author is fantastic too!

Would you be willing to try another book from Melissa Storm? Why or why not?

Not that I can recall.

Did Diving for Pearls: The Complete Collection inspire you to do anything?

No.

I REALLY wanted to like this book. I really did. But I just found it to be predictable and it just seemed to drag on and on. Normally, I LOVE anything and everything about Angels and Heaven, but this one just didn't do it for me. I honestly couldn't wait for it to be over with, and I feel bad for saying that because the story line meant well.

It had been perfect at first for the four young people. Friends since their broken childhoods, now they stood together at the threshold of adulthood. They were a family by choice, not by nature. When supplies dwindled and society failed, so did the rules of civilization and the mountain closed in. Not all predators walk on four legs.
