there is only crass humor, a curse word every other word, and little substantial content worth adding to my day. if I want cynicism and crankiness, I will visit certain relatives.

The two main characters have a history of verbal abuse. How sad the effectives of it that taint their relationships, their approaches to marriage and faith. The overwhelming insecurities, guilt, and miscommunications create a damaging pattern, but how lovely the redemption of it all.

Such a unique premise. The cover is attractive, and the story just drew me right in. The protagonist's plight made my heart ache, but the redemption of her circumstances, the possibility of hope growing, was a pleasure. I wasn't particularly drawn to the vocal actor's take on the story. I could detect voice overs, and certain other personal things that were a distraction to me, but she represented the story in a manner that provided me the possibility to hear the story while doing my duties and while driving. Thank you.

An easy to follow guide to learning beginning basics of Spanish. Certain words repeated in Spanish might be difficult to understand clearly, but in general it was a very good basic refresher of the language. Smooth voices, and steady, but not too swift, flow of lessons.

Note: Certain things applied more to Spain Spanish than Latin American Spanish.

A challenging, but not entirely unappreciated audio. The audio is a coasting sort of rhythm, at times even slow. In challenging moments, the tone doesn't stray far from its evenness. The artist seemed to have some difficulty with certain vocals, especially in relation to varying the rises and falls of the British accents, though she did well with male voices, in general. I acknowledge that such work is difficult, especially when foreign accents are thrown into the mix.

Regarding the story itself, there was a specific typo that stood out as it was spoken. Some phrases were said by foreign mouths that felt completely out of place. It was not a wholly original theme. All in all, it was ok.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

One of the most revered works in English literature, Great Expectations traces the coming of age of a young orphan, Pip, from a boy of shallow aspirations into a man of maturity. From the chilling opening confrontation with an escaped convict to the grand but eerily disheveled estate of bitter old Miss Havisham, all is not what it seems in Dickens’ dark tale of false illusions and thwarted desire.

This vocal artist did a fine job of keeping the perfect rhythm, was adept at changing tone for different characters, and leant much fullness and character to a story that already has so much personality, quirkiness, and real story.

Regarding the Paperback: "Lions and tigers and bears, Oh My!!" Um, no... Here we have the most bountiful mishmash of characters of legend, mythology, lore, and Ancient wonder. Reminiscent of the Chronicles of Narnia, the Pilgrim's Progress, and George MacDonald's The Princess and the Goblin, The Tethered World is an enjoyable coming-of-age adventure that is great for the Whole family. It IS Family Fantasy!!! A delightful adventure that deals with insecurities to courage, immaturity to growth, and so many other little lessons along the way.

Major characters are very real in their personalities and habits and how they relate to one another. They are clearly established, and very unique; as are the story and plot. A homeschooled family and an autistic child are only some of the particular details that allow this story to be considered different from other fantasy tales. There are surprises, action and so many quirky and imagination-stretching moments, that the story flowed and kept me interested. There are certain minor characters or situations that I had a hard time imagining, but it isn't so serious that it disturbed me. It just made me long for more details, a more full perspective.

I am so honored and pleased to have been able to read this book, as it was a pleasant, intriguing journey.
