Slept through it, but that's the point!

Lots of breathing, envisioning, and then I woke up. It worked!

I found this mindfulness exercise to be a pleasant experience without any distracting or annoying elements to break the immersion it is intended to create. It's effective in it's simple approach

Narrated in a pleasant, soothing female voice. Just right.

That place between here and there

Story:
This short story is written as a recounting of a father as he tells the story of his 9 year old son's tragedy during a baseball game and indications that it was all meant to be. It tells of this boy's love of the game and also that he might have had some sense of what was going to happen and was at peace with it. The story lays out interesting observations seemingly supporting the idea that this young man was prepared or had knowledge of what was soon to befall him and leaves you to come to your own conclusions.


Narration:
The narration is good and portrays the main character well.

Twisted story about a twisted House

Story:
"There was a crooked man, he flipped a crooked house" is an exciting story that is part mystery that teases your brain for comprehension, and part thriller that makes you guess at who's going to survive. The story picks up with the main character, a good-hearted working man, that is tasked by his boss, a less than upstanding individual, to rehabilitate a house in the slums in an attempt to quickly resell the house at a profit. But when he peers into the house through the glass of the front door, what he sees boggles his mind. The house seems out of place in setting as well as time, but everyone soon finds out there is much more going on within it's walls than meets the eye.

If you have read and loved Peter Cline's book "14" or Steven King's book "IT", you will enjoy this short story.

Narration:
The narration is good and portrays the main character well.

The story's narration is well done. No technical problems or irritating inflections some narrators of short stories exhibit.

Conclusion:
I really enjoyed it. If you like a good ghost story with a twist or two, Letters to Eula wont disappoint!

Classic, and just what you would expect

Story:
This is a reading of the classic story that has horrified millions of children for two centuries. A story of bravery, the love of a brother and sister, and a moral of good's triumph over evil. However, in my opinion the brow-beaten father is let off easy in this one.

Narration:
The story is expertly narrated and a pleasure to listen to!

Conclusion:
This is a good addition to your modern library and a great way to continue the nightmares for generations to come!
