It is important to know about the trials and tribulations of Planned Parenthood and the women who count on it. The subject matter is extremely important.

That said, I wish the book had more to say. It feels like preaching to the converted since, if you are interested in this subject you probably know quite a bit of this already. It is a memoir. There isn’t a whole lot of useful information. And, though Cecile Richards reading is pretty natural, it is a bit dry.

You are presumably looking here for clues to the shocking conclusion of this terminal audiobook, or the ending of the end. The end of the end is the best place to begin the end, because if you listen to the end from the beginning of the beginning of the end to the end of the end of the end, you will arrive at the end of the end of your rope.

It wasn't the best ending ever, but I loved the series. And the reading is also perfect. Disappointing ending. Sad it's over.

After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

This reader is one of the best I've ever heard. She disappears into the story which carries you along.
