Superstar comedian and Hollywood box-office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.

Any additional comments?

This was a great introduction for me into this series and I am not normally one to get into zombies etc, but I was hooked within the first few minutes and devastated when the ending came... it was just too fast. I wanted to hear more and learn more about what happened.

Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. At 28, he's focused only on walking a straight line - getting his teaching degree, working out at the gym religiously, and avoiding all the places and people that proved so destructive in his earlier life. The last thing he's looking for is a serious relationship. But when Maria Sanchez crosses paths with him on a rainswept night in North Carolina, his plans are upended in a way that will rattle the foundations of his carefully structured life.

What made the experience of listening to See Me the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the narration as it seemed very natural and I almost forgot at times that someone was actually reading this to me.

Have you listened to any of Christopher Ryan Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first one

Who was the most memorable character of See Me and why?

Lily and her southern charm, even during the deep and dark times, she continued to bring a bright light into situations and handled things like a true woman from the south.

Any additional comments?

I really liked this book as I do like 90 percent of Spark's stories. I like them more when I do not see the movies as they seem to botch the storylines and leave out the nest characters. I did feel that the ending was kind of rushed, but overall I liked it.

Would you listen to The Secret Wisdom of the Earth again? Why?

Yes! The whole story draws you into this community and the characters from the first chapter.

What did you like best about this story?

That is was believable and how loss of family, community and self can happen to anyone.

Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

All of them! I felt like there were multiple performers, not just one!

Any additional comments?

I am thankful my friend Jack recommended this book to me, I feel it will be one I will listen to over and over.
