wonderfully done, great read! enjoyed reading to the end. well read by the author!
Would you listen to Defiant again? Why?
Possibly, if I am moved to do so. I have a lot of audio books. It is worthwhile.
What did you like best about this story?
A touching tale of our shared humanity and inherent capacity to transfigure the trials and tribulations of life to the tenacity of the human spirit. It vivifies the reality of impermanence, the value of disidentification with the body, our innate divine connection, and the overaching benevolence of the universe in that "life happens for us not to us" with raw honesty and vulnerable integrity.
Have you listened to any of Janine Shepherd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to it over a few days as I engaged in the activities of daily living.
Where does Defiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Defiant is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to. Heaing Janine, in her own voice, tell her incredible story of not only survival but thriving after your accident is gripping, powerful, emotional and compelling. It's hard to put down!

Everything to Live For by Turia Pitt
What does Janine Shepherd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Her voice. The emotion, warm, connection with the story. Those things can't be conveyed by the written word.

The straw story in the hospital and her first flight.
