Informative, thought provoking and concise. All Jonathan Blacks books are well worth the time. Thanks.

It does exactly what it says on the tin!

Woodman sets out the importance of individual dream work and how the unconscious manifests in sleeping and waking life. Helpful pointers on how to work with the typical dreams many of us have and how to understand the possible ways they relate to the stresses of life. This work may help you to understand why making conscious the richness of dream, good or bad, is work we should at least consider.

Having looked into feng shui and after having listened to this book, this is the book you should follow the advice of first! Make the choice to clear your home first of all the things you hold onto and be clear about the reasons you keep the things that you do. Then when your home is clear of clutter you may wish to go back to feng shui, but you may not need to. A joy to listen to.

Thought provoking in the best possible way.

Recommended for people of all religious and spiritual persuasions or non. Despite the concept of this being a souly Christian text, it isn't because it speaks to any and all who have a curiosity about what their soul is or might be. All three volumes of Conversations with God speak to the deepest part of you, because it reminds you of realisations you have probably already had. Try not to think of organised religion or dogma because this has non of that. It is a pure clear voice whose aim is to make you think about yourself in relation to others in a way that makes you see the oneness of all and everything.

Would you try another book written by S. E. Smith or narrated by David Brenin?

No.

What could S. E. Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Nothing.

How could the performance have been better?

Ditto.

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

Yes, I could turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Might float some peoples boats, but my boat sank without trace. To be fair it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Interesting, but for all the wrong reasons...

What would have made 100 Bigfoot Nights better?


This seems to be more a story of how sleeplessness can contribute to an over active imagination and hysteria. A better book on this subject is Strange Mutants by John A Keel, which has a few chapters on documented sightings of Bigfoot listed in a dispassionate, matter of fact way which are both interesting and informative.

I found this book annoying and spent most of my time thinking this lady obviously already had serious issues with wild dark spaces having spent some of her time living in a city. It also sounded as if most of the early events that occurred could be explained through more mundane means. To be fair, I did say most things. She lost me when she talked about expecting people to be able to relocate a bigfoot because she didn't like it being near her house and from then on it went down hill until after an hour and a half I turned it off. I don't doubt that what this lady experienced was frightening, but again it all smacked more of paranoia and sleep deprivation.

One final note, the recordings provided are of poor quality and were perfect fodder on which to project imagined results. For instance (spoiler) The "Mommy" call might just as well have been someone calling their cat, because it could have been any short name ending with an "Ee" sound.

Out of respect to the author, she was the one who was there and experienced these events and it may just be the style in which she writes which put me off.

What was most disappointing about Christine Dela Parker’s story?

I could not finish the story. Like some of the other people said, it is like a paranormal campfire story that goes on too long.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lee Zasloff’s performances?

N/A

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

Yes, I could turn it off. Of course most of us want to keep and open mind about the possibility of strange things existing that both we and science have missed. But this did not help me to keep an open mind.

Any additional comments?

Don't just take my word for it. You should listen to this if the subject interests you, but listen to it from a standpoint of cool intellect instead of blind faith.

An important spiritual message... badly delivered!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sadly, no. This is a very important concept and message about our spiritual potential, but dear Andrew Harvey spoke so slowly, and repeated himself so often, that it was like listening to a dear but elderly relative while you are sitting there, "getting older", just waiting for him to get to the point! Bless him... At one point, he asks "Why, why, why, why?" and then seems to take a mental break for a while. Caroline also repeats herself a lot and speaks too slowly.

Speak with passion by all means, but get to the point... if there is one!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Play it faster than normal speed!

How could the performance have been better?

This would have been so much better if they had first written down all they had said during this lecture and then had someone edit that text. Then the message would have been clear, concise and very, very powerful. But as it is presented here, its just too rambling and distracting. The importance of the message gets lost.

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

No, the delivery is very annoying and I found myself quickly loosing interest and patience. If I had paid to attend this lecture, I would have walked out. I will continue to listen to it , but only a chapter at a time. Any more than that, would be pushing it!

Any additional comments?

Other people say the same spiritual message with greater clarity and focus. Lorna Byrne, Wayne W. Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Diana Cooper, Deepak Chopra and "A Course in Miracles", to name but a few.

Buy it, by all means, but you will need to have the patience of a saint...
