Everyone has heard of "Q". Who is "Q" and "Qanon"? In every period there is a book for the time that man is in. This is the book. A must-listen. Find out all about the coming storm in this addictive audiobook. A Friend of Medjugorje exposes the Divine mandate upon the earth and how it is manifesting physically and spiritually. The plan is not only physical, nor is it just spiritual. It is both, and they are now coming to light.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

  • A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

I couldn't listen very long. It reminded me too much of some people I've know in my life who couldn't care less about anyone or anything outside of their own little self centric bubble of a world. I didn't care to have that kind of person tell me how they know it all, or how I should live my life. I don't like anxiety.

  • Moby-Dick

Labeled variously a realistic story of whaling, a romance of unusual adventure and eccentric characters, a symbolic allegory, and a drama of heroic conflict, Moby Dick is first and foremost a great story. It has both the humor and poignancy of a simple sea ballad, as well as the depth and universality of a grand odyssey.

  • I Had No Idea Melville Was So Funny

I wasn't impressed with the reading...

The reader did the story in for me.

A good reader he is perhaps, but he seemed to sweep through sentences in such a way that blended them together, watering them down so that they went in one ear and out the next.

I felt the story was one I couldn't get into, though have attempted reading it several times. The reader emphasizes things too much at times, so that I felt the story was over-dramatic. The story has plenty of drama as it is, without the reader putting an exclamation point on every single sentence. I would like to hear someone that would read it in a more natural tone; maybe William Hurt would be good.

Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

The draw of this book has everything to do with the writer's incredible talent for colorful and moving story telling, and a writing style that comes alive with McCourt's uncomplicated and free flowing Irish accented narration. Frank McCourt's amazing life story is a not just a must-read, but a Classic.
