Towards the beginning of the book I thought the book was too technical. It sounded like it was for students of psychology. However I am glad I didn't quit listening. As you progress through the book the stories refer back to that technical information and really helps you understand how the brain works.
This is not a book of stories like "Chicken Soupmfor the Soul". This actually tells you about the affects of childhood trauma on the brain. It was not what I expected, but it was very interesting. I would recommend.
Jodi is my favorite author and this book did not disappoint. I already had a fascination with elephants and so this book was especially enjoyable. I would highly recommend.
I liked the story. It was different because the focus was not on the kidnapping but what happens when the victim is reunited with her family and the struggles they go through. The ending was pretty predictable but it is worth the read.
I didn't realize this was one in a series. The book is interesting right from the start and once you are done you are going to want to read the other two. You will not be disappointed.
Had a nice surprise ending. The story moved nicely and kept your interest. I enjoyed it.
Based n the characters I think this book was written for teens but I found myself drawn in and after the first book had to keep going. This is a series of three that should be read in order. The second book was my least favorite of the three. It seemed drawn out, but the characters and story line were important for book three. Overall I would recommend.
According to the book description this is about a mothers search for her child that she was forced to five up for adoption in the 50s, but that is not what the book is about. It is about the life of the son she gave up for adoption. The mothers search is briefly mentioned in the prologue. The story is about a young man coming to terms with his own sexuality, his feelings of abandonment and his efforts to try to find his mother. If this sounds interesting to you, than you will enjoy this book. The book is not bad, but it is not as described and had I known I probably would not have purchased.
This was an amazing story. I am an animal lover and never knew that elephants were so smart and have such a strong sense of family. I laughed and I cried and I know where I want to go when I get my passport.
The story follows the lives of several characters. None were overly remarkable and there was never a big reveal or climactic ending. The ending was kind of disappointment.
The story started off strong. Much of it was fairly predictable, but it was still good. However, the book should have ended several chapters before it did. It dragged on way past the point of a good ending.
If you have read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, you will enjoy this short story that brings closure to all of your favorite characters. If you have not read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books, this will not make any sense.
