Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a f*cking miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

I will listen to this again...it's a real keeper. This is down to earth, practical and has info you can actually identify with and put into practice. Sure he swears (get over it or don't buy it. It's in the title for heaven's sake) but not gratuitously or overmuch. It's just part of his message and delivery and both are powerful and amazing. It's rare to read something that leaves you changed and this is one of those books. Do yourself a favor and invest 3 hours and 23 minutes of your time and listen to this book. It's terrific.

Tucked away in the rolling hills of rural western Virginia lies the storybook resort of Storyton Hall, catering to book lovers who want to get away from it all. To increase her number of bookings, resort manager Jane Steward has decided to host a Murder and Mayhem week so that fans of the mystery genre can gather together for some role-playing and fantasy crime solving.

I made it to the halfway point before I gave up on this book. What I found was a ridiculous plot line with ex-super secret service employees, an Aunt with zero impulse control (who is supposedly in charge of one of the world's GREATEST treasures), a milktoast uncle who actually has ninja skills and a Deputy Dawg police Chief who feels the need to consult with a hotel manager to solve a murder. (or two)

The hotel is supposedly falling apart and they are short of cash, yet there are Rolls- Royces (yes, more than one) available for guests. Auntie gets custom made gowns (often!) and the hotel amenities and restaurants surpass that of any other 5-star hotel.

The characters are over the top in their silly declarations and grandiose speech. And even though I enjoy a fluffy story, a good fantasy and fun-fiction..... I could NOT suspend belief long enough to get into any of this.

The narrator is over the top with her "performance". Her voicing of the "Aunt" involves bugling and trumpeting like a Brit Royal. Her voicing of the main character's twin boys had me cringing. And it goes on...

I am always on the prowl for a new author and new series and this one is not it. The amateurish writing and the melodramatic reading made me sorry I wasted my money on this.

What disappointed you about Free Product: Walking Meditation?

The reader's manner of speaking bordered on a cartoonish parody of an upper crust English aristocrat. Very breathy and just weird in the listener's ear....
The meditation itself involved walking and then stopping (eyes closed) to reflect. All well and good unless you are NOT on a deserted (safe) road in the country...

How could the performance have been better?

Less set up for the actual meditation . The first several minutes explain what is going to happen....it's walking for goodness sake, not rocket science....just GO!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was free. (I know! Why complain?)

Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

I really wanted to love this,having enjoyed the previous Earth Childrens books, but....This latest offering is a re-hash of the previous Ayla stories. This would be wonderful if you had never read any of Jean Auel's books, but as someone who has....it is tedious!
SPOILER ALERT: The plot goes like this: Ayla nurses the baby...Insert the "Mothers Song", she nurses again, insert the Mother's song, she and Jondalar have the usual "he/she doesn't love me" misunderstanding, insert the Mothers song, She goes on a vague and confusing spiritual journey- Insert the Mother's song ...
The characters are usually so rich and real, and this book does nothing to expand on their stories. It just re-hashes, repeats and has a brief moment or two of tantalizing interest that quickly fades.
I stuck it out to the last page, but it wasn't easy.
