An interesting look into a nurse paramedic's life

I've come back to this book a few times and I am still trying to understand how I feel. In a good way. It's left me thinking over how we treat medical professionals and I don't think I could do it as a job, but it is interesting to hear about and learn about what people do in their day-to-day life. It can be a little graphic at times, so weak stomachs may find it difficult, but I had no problem in general. It is interesting and it feels honest and real, which I'm sure was the goal.

Jane does a wonderful job setting up the scene and she offers an insight into Emily's life. Her imagination is astonishing, and it is truly her escape, so much has been put onto her that she needs that escape to keep her sanity. It is never easy when an abuser returns. Jane did the narration as well, and I do not think anyone else could have done it justice, she truly cares so much for this book she has written. I cannot wait for the next part of this trilogy.

I've listened to many books by Ryan and narrated by Steve, these two are one of my favourites to come back to. Steve narrates so well that it adds to Ryan's writing and really draws you into the story being told. I knew nothing about Henry Lee Lucas, and I was drawn into this and finished it in one sitting (granted, it is a shorter story). It was well written and flowed wonderfully.

I feel like I'm repeating myself a lot with Ryan's books, although I do believe this is my first introduction to Ernie narrating. Ryan has the ability to write in a way that is captivating and he makes it seem as though no time passes when you listen to his books - although Ernie may have had something to do with that as well. The narration was truly well done.

I've been diagnosed with PCOS for a while, and I get into moods where I research more about it and how the symptoms impact me in others ways along with fertility. This book does offer a lot of information and granted, there are a few instances where words are pronounced in a way that was jarring, but it did not take away from the experience. There is a nice focus on the actuality of PCOS, not just a 'here is how you lose weight' which a lot of resources do seem to be. I do think this is a good place for someone to search for answers to their problems with this diagnosis.

Jade is a someone who helps supernaturals cross over after death. Demons have managed to cross realms and are impregnating people, Jade's friend is one of these people and Jade sets off on a path to help save her friend.

This is an interesting story of someone doing whatever they can to help the people that they love, and it really does draw you into the tale being told. There is a lot to unpack, but it is truly worth listening to. It is a good way to spend nine hours, and the story is so rich and entertaining.

These are a set of interesting tales of ghost sightings and experiences and it really does make things seem a little more believable. There were a few that did stick with me and give me a few uneasy feelings afterwards. They really were interesting to read though

This time it's her girlfriend's ex-boyfriend fingering her for her girlfriend's death. She'd have told him to take a jump off the idiot-cliff, only claiming proof. Lillian finds out blackmail isn't the only thing he's up to. Feds and a CEO connected with the Chicago Family are after him, and in turn, are on the hunt for Lillian.

^ That is the best summary, and it really does take you on a journey as you listen to it. It is so well written and well narrated that I know it'll be one I come back to. Reagan's voice is soothing and perfect for this story.

Cloudan is the Grim Reaper in this tale, and this story is so filled with lore and backstory linked to myths that I hadn't heard of as in-depth as a few others may have. Still, there was no struggle to read what happens and it works well at introducing and explaining the myths in a way that wouldn't seem condescending - at I don't think it would. Cloudan's personality is everything I adore in leads of a story, the wit and charm always draws me in. It truly is a wonderfully written tale that I will likely listen to again and again

To be honest, I picked this up thinking that it'd be filled with the normal 'tricks' that people use, but there were some in here that aren't talked about or shown as a gimmick. Psychology is a tricky thing to read about for me, I am a Psych graduate, but this does read easily and it's in simple terms and almost bite-sized information that is easy for those not too invested in psychology to understand. It is a really nice book for people that aren't research students themselves. There are a few points in here I am tempted to fact-check, but I do not doubt that research has been done by Alexander. This is a nice book
