As a young peasant boy growing up in a remote village in Northern China, becoming a ballet dancer is furthest from Li Cunxin's mind.

Li's story about how ballet changed the course of his life and his freedom, is extraordinary and a story everyone will enjoy.

The narrator Paul English, was excellent and he had me captivated the whole time listening to Li's story.

I loved this personal account of Li's life and challenges during the Chinese Communist regime.

I highly recommend this story to anyone who is willing to listen to such an amazing story.

Thank you Audible for making this story into our Audio libraries.

I admit I have never heard of Mel Robbins before. When this book came up as book of the month for Audible members, I downloaded it not knowing what to expect.

Wow, what a surprise. You can listen to this book over and over again and take away techniques to put into practice in your own lives and relationships with loved ones, family and friends.

I hope there are more books like this from Mel Robbins. I loved listening to the different stories and look forward to listening to them all over again.

A compelling story I couldn't put down.

Wow, what a joke the judicial system in this world has become. Why is this happening?
Adnan's story of his fight to clear is name in the murder of his ex girlfriend will leave you bewildered with shock at how a jury convicted him of a crime, he couldnt have committed, with little evidence. But the jury concluded after only 2 hours. OMG.
Tania, what an amazingly insightful explanation of Adnan's case. Your factual documentary was captivating and compelling. Thank you for telling Adnan's story.

Wow, where do I start. A friend told me to listen to this book, but she couldn't explain why. She said she needed me to read it so we could discuss it.

So I bought it straight away. When I first started listening to the quirky though process of Eleanor, I laughed, I thought she was a bit (ok a lot) wacky, but she grows on you and you want to hear more.

Eleanor lives week by week, with the same routine and she doesn't like change. With change, comes new experiences and Eleanor wants to become someone she's not.

This is a story about one woman's perception on the world growing up in a challenging family environment and how it shaped her to become this quirky, eccentric young woman. How people's kind heartedness and support encourages her to ask for help.

I loved this book. It was totally not what I expected when I first started reading it.

Too much jumping between past, present and more

I really enjoyed the storyline, but this book took me way too long to finish. I kept having to re-listen to chapters to understand what was going on. The story jumps too much between the 1800's, 1920's, 1960's and present day. I loved the gist of the story, the art, history and intrigue. But listening to it was a real struggle, which is such a shame because it was a great story.
