When 19-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it.

This was a really good story and read with feeling.

I cried at least 3 times so heart wrenching the story got...

Wow...

Don't start when you need to go to bed early (or at all) it's really hard to press the stop button for long

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

Mysteriuos, full of strong women and mystery.

The storyline is masterfully made a great mix of overall tension and some fun. You have to continue hearing ;-)

What other book might you compare Gene of Isis to, and why?


It reminds me a bit of "Reflections in the Nile" (Time Travel Series) by Suzanne Frank but I think it is better.

What does Edwina Wren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I love how one women can impersonate with accents and the sound of her voice so many people and even men so nicly!

Very Good!

For rookie detective constable Fiona Griffiths, her first major investigation promises to be a tough initiation. A young woman and her six-year-old daughter have been found brutally murdered in a squalid flat, the single clue a platinum credit card belonging to a millionaire businessman who died in a plane crash six months before. Fiona, however, has secrets of her own. She is still recovering from a crushing psychological breakdown, and the feelings that haunt her are constantly threatening to undermine the mask of normality she has learned to wear.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Talking to the Dead?

Love the Figthing and the 'Material Arts' Teacher

Any additional comments?

The story is well paced and goes deeply into the emotions or non emotions of our fascinating detective.
A good Krimi with some interesting twists. Sensitive Storytelling

I needed to get used to the Storyteller (female) but now I have warmed up to the voice.
Still -1 Star because of the 'Geting used to Period' and not beeing able to Jumpstart instantly with her

In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.

What aspect of Don Hagen’s performance might you have changed?

his voice somtimes pitches to high/hard noises which can be very annoing and ear-hurting if you have the overall sound on loud to understand everything in an noisy surrounding like a train.
These Sound piches should have been smoothed out in the audio correction.
Otherwise he hase a pleasent voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Particulary interesting I found every and all evidence of scientific nature he brought up in addition to his other book "The China Study" for a whole plant based Diet.

The focus on the american health system and were it goes wrong in the later half of the book I wasn't much interested in. Nevertheless I heard the whole thing and feel better informed and this may help me find deficites in the health system of my own country.

Imagine the leaders of one of New York City’s top real-estate firms coming together every Monday morning to hear… the moral and spiritual thoughts of a Rabbi. Imagine them returning, week after week… coming to eagerly anticipate those five minutes as a moment of uncommon peace in the world’s most brutally competitive environment.

Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall?

This is not a book you want to hear in one session.
Every day a chapter is plenty of information and inspirational ideas to think about at one given time.

He gives great work/spiritual advice. And hopefully helps to better ones live.
