Esther Perel is one of my favorite audiobooks if any topic, I always look forward to each one. The dialogue between all parties is always paced and intelligible. I felt like I was in psycotherapy.

Everything about this bio is surprising. So much interesting information was revealed throughout the whole audiobook, it seemed like it lasted for more than 22 minutes because it covered the most important events and tragedies. Examples of his music are also heard. The narrator is one of the best I've heard.

The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus Christ's most well-known sermon and could more accurately be called a "mountain of a sermon". It gives directives on living for Jesus' kingdom, covering such issues as loving your enemies, praying effectively, advancing God's will, and submitting to Christ's authority. In this series, Pastor Skip Heitzig takes us through these instructions on holy living and how they should affect our everyday lives.

This account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic was written by Lawrence Beesley and was first published in 1912. The interesting element is that Lawrence Beesley was a survivor of the Titanic disaster and provides a realistic account of some of the events leading to and following the sinking of the Titanic. The RMS Titanic was an Olympic class passenger liner that became infamous for its collision with an iceberg and dramatic sinking in 1912. The second of a trio of superliners, she and her sisters, Olympic and Britannic, were designed to provide a three-ship weekly express service.

Jewel thievery, car chases, and romance on the French Riviera. Alfred Hitchcock's Oscar-winning film To Catch a Thief brought together Hollywood's two most glamorous stars, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant, in the most glamorous place on Earth, the French Riviera. It is a tale of jewel thievery, intrigue, false identity, covert investigation, and, most of all, romance.

This is an indepth bio of one of the best hispanic poets of the 20th century, Pablo Neruda. By the subjects and depth of his work, I could tell he had an interesting life and this audiobook conveys just how interesting it was. I recommend this if you are into Pablo Neruda, poetry and biographies and history. Oh, and, the bonus is that the narrator also recites some of his poetry written during the time period being mentioned.

This lesson was informative, educational and the narration and pronunciation were spot on. The word in English is repeated twice in French with a pause in between.

I found the lesson easier as it went along. I have been studying Italian, which is much easier for me. I only just started learningFrench on my own and it is more of a challenge, the sentences always sound like they run together, but having the ability to hear this over and over makes it more familiar and I can now get two or more words in most of the sentences.

The lessons are divided in the Parts of Speech which are identified before each segment. You should get this if you're serious about learning this beautiful romance language.
