I enjoyed this book and the narration. I am at the beginning of my blogging journey and wanted some great tips on how to write good posts and also a sort of formula to use. I found that with this book. The advice is good for all bloggers and the examples, although they weren’t applicable to me, inspired me to come up with several ideas. This is a quick listen and a great price. It’s worth every penny.

Really enjoyable listen

I have recently become very interested in meditation and Buddhism and this is a great listen. The presenters are warm and funny and the subject of meditation is discussed in a way which will appeal to many from the people who want more calm in their life to the more spiritual practitioner. I loved hearing about the research into meditation benefits for the brain and hearing the presenters experiences. My only criticism is that I really wanted to hear the results of Alices tests!

Marian Keyes is a fantastic author and yet again I’ve loved loved loved listening to (and reading when I couldn’t listen) this book. The idea of hearing the different sides to the story and the three characters’ different opinions is so clever. I wish I could write such a fabulous book! I felt for all the women particularly Lilly! If you want to laugh, cry and be gripped by what happens next, then buy this. You won’t be disappointed!

I really really loved this!

I have read many many many law of attraction books, watched the films, watched seminars and used many of the methods. I already use and love Ho’oponopono and that’s what lead me to find Craig Beck. I wanted to hear more from this person so I have now listened to two of his books.

This book is so fantastic and it really speaks to me. Craig explains things in such an easy to understand and absorb way. His voice is pleasant and he speaks from not only his experience but from the heart too. A perfect combination. I hope he will read this review because I really want to say thank you!

Thank you Craig for allowing me to get closer and closer to letting go of expectations and a deeper understanding of ho’oponopono and the law of attraction, or rather subconscious attraction! ❤️

Best ending EVER!

I want to listen to this all over again. I loved this. This book has it all and is fabulously written and narrated. There are laughs in this book but more importantly the many stories kept me gripped and the serious subjects were handled with care. I loved the ending or endings as there are lots of mini stories of the various occupants of star street. I love Marian Keyes! Brilliant.

A beautiful absorbing story

I totally loved this book. Jojo Moyes is an excellent writer and this was one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. The characters were perfectly portrayed and grew realistically so that I truly believed they were real people and connected with them. At the end I felt as though they were still living their lives and isn't that a testimony to how well the book was written? I only hope I don't greedily rush through the rest of Jojo's books so I'm left desperate for her to write another as I've already read (and listened to on audible) many of them. She has fast become my favourite author. Julia Franklin is such a good narrator too and uses many voices including very convincing male ones.

This is one of the best books I've read or listened to. The way it is written is wonderful and the stories are so gripping. It was not clear what would happen so I was hanging on till the last word and as I did, all the pieces fell into place and I found I had tears running down my face. I loved both the heroines, the wartime Sophie and the modern day Liv. The narration was perfect, great acting and very believable. A beautiful book with an amazing story. I loved it.

Great book but reader sounds mechanical

At first on listening I thought it sounded like a mechanical voice made up of single words put together and I'm not sure if I'm wrong about that. The book of course is very good and well written. I love finding out more about Emile Coué and I have also bought the kindle version which I plan to read to my daughter. I listened to this entire book as I wanted to hear it but the voice was distracting and strange so I'm not sure I'd recommend the audio version.

So far, my favourite autobiography

A fantastic autobiography, funny, clever, witty, thought provoking, inspiring, wise, intimate and wonderful. I think Amy is someone I'd love to meet and we would be good friends (although I'm completely ambivalent to that happening Amy! 😉)

I loved everything about this book and it was wonderful to hear her friends and family take part too. It was like listening to a fun party that you're invited to! When does that happen. I learnt that Amy is also fascinated by miniature plastic food and that she is a wonderfully kind, clever and like minded woman. I wish she would write another one so I can listen more! The last chapter read in front of a laughterfull (not a word) audience was a treat. Five big stars!
