Would you try another book from Audrey K. Chisholm Esq. and/or Nader Nadernejad?

Yes. I will be purchase the actual book. The audiobook leaves much to be desired.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nader Nadernejad’s performances?

I understand everyone has to start somewhere but this is just terrible. The audio is poorly recorded, performed, and edited. Unlistenable.

Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at 50, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova.

What made the experience of listening to Women the most enjoyable?

The narrator, Christian Baskous, embodies the authors quirks, humor, and characters. He gives a wonderful performance.

What other book might you compare Women to and why?

Bukowski's writing is minimalist and direct. Hemmingway, Chandler, and Fante are legitimate points of origin.

Which character – as performed by Christian Baskous – was your favorite?

Hank and Lydia.

Our fearless author, A. J. Jacobs, tackles a new intellectual adventure, an exploration of the most influential book in the world: the Bible. He determined that the best way to explore the Bible was to live it, as literally as possible. For one year.

My wife and I listened to this audiobook from start to finish and enjoyed every minute of it. Jacobs is a talented writer with a gift for obsessively thorough research and deceptively simple writing. He knows his stuff and he's smart enough to hold his cards close to his chest.

The book follows the author through a year of literal Biblical living. He stones adulterers, avoids direct contact with women, sacrifices animals, keeps the Sabbath holy and so on. When tackling a number of sensitive and downright mind-boggling commandments, Jacobs' sense of humor proves to be the real savior here. His clear thinking, honesty and humor make "The Year of Living Biblically" an important document on both modern Biblical integration as well as the history of religious thinking and practice.
