I plowed through this book hoping I would find a good reason. I didn’t. The narrator was in an awkward state of awe throughout. Is this read by a robot? I wondered if it was a more advanced version of SIRI narrating it.
The story is minute, slow and not greatly relevant to my spiritual advancement. It’s like reading through someone’s spiritual journal, just lots of details you don’t really want to know... perhaps it’s a good book, just horribly narrated. I’m not sure.

I listened to this book in 1.25x speed. Listening at normal speed was unbearable. After listening to the content of the book, I concluded the reader’s performance must’ve been slowed down in order to gain length.
The authors NDE is worth listening to, but there was not enough material to create a book this long, hence the book is filled with unnecessary details and repetition. All of it read very slowly.
This book should’ve been 1 hour long.
Will return it.

This book helped me understand many universal truths. It’s a book I will listen to many times. I’ve passed it on to many of my friends already.
The book is read by three voices, of which my least favorite was the author’s. Why does he have to sound so authoritative? This gets worse as the book progresses and becomes a real nuisance. If he’s giving voice to a progressive version of God, why make his voice so like the traditional angry God?
My favorite reader was the female voice. How nice it is to understand God as female.

I found this book to be interesting and well narrated, but overly long. It really didn't need to be 22 hours long. The end is just too much, too perfect. Despite that, I do recommend it if you have 22 hours to kill.

What would have made Stop Depression, Overcome Sadness and Grief better?

The script is not relaxing, it's more like a depressing lecture on how it is you who's creating your depression. It made me angry

Would you ever listen to anything by Joel Thielke again?

I'm not sure

What about Rachael Meddows’s performance did you like?

Rachael Meddows has a great voice for this kind of audio

What character would you cut from Stop Depression, Overcome Sadness and Grief?

n/a

Any additional comments?

I'm returning this title

This book is NOT read by Cameron Diaz. She reads the prologue and the conclusion only.

I found this book to be an entry level book about nutrition and good eating habits.

The author thinks he's just too funny, but he's not. Some of his jokes are unbearably lame, like proclaiming repeatedly that the voice he's using to enact a character is just some voice he made up, not the real character's accent. And again, and again. He thinks it's the best joke ever. Most of the humor is lame.
The information is actually pretty good and accurate.

I listened to this book the way you would watch a chick flick, just looking to be entertained. It was easy to listen most of the time, though at times it got redundant and boring. I loved the narrator's voice from the very beginning. She does an outstanding job bringing this story to life.

Where does You Lost Him at Hello rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book should be taught in school. I wish I had read it sooner.

What did you like best about this story?

The dating principles

Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Farhat’s performances?

I hope not. The narrator can be slow. I honestly wondered if it was a computer voice at times.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Don't give away your "bullets" too early in the relationship
