The tarot is a pack of 78 playing cards used by mystics and occultists for foretelling the future as well as for giving you a peek into your spiritual and mental pathway. Tarot cards have existed since the mid-15th century in various parts of the European continent. However, at that point it was basically used to play card games, such as French tarot or the Italian tarocchini.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would slow it down. I like to absorb what is being said but his narration was too speedy for me to do any of that.

  • The Tender Bar

Torn between the stirring example of his mother and the lurid romance of the bar, J.R. tried to forge a self somewhere in the center. But when it was time for J.R. to leave home, the bar became an increasingly seductive sanctuary, a place to return and regroup during his picaresque journeys. Time and again, the bar offered shelter from failure, rejection, heartbreak, and eventually from reality.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tender Bar to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily

What did you like best about this story?

It was so real and true. I loved the characters.

What does J.R. Moehringer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It was as if he was actually telling me his story while I was driving to work each day.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I looked forward to hearing it on my 40 minute drive to work

Any additional comments?

I am looking forward to reading Sutton.
