In the beginning of the book I thought it was excellent. It made me declare "I love Sarah Silverman!". But then somewhere near the middle, the writing got a little messy. It wasn't as introspective. It wasn't written with any chronology or progression... No climax. I just started wishing she'd stop talking about herself and her "Jewy-ness" and her pot smoking and the TV episode she wrote about banging Jesus... Bleck. By the time it was over I was just happy it was over.
Lots of action in this one. I just didn't like the way the book ended. Felt like it just went on and on, battle after battle and then it just ended. Never one big climax. Lots of tiny climaxes and then it just ended.
The reader was absolutely amazing. He was able to do all kinds of different accents.
I really enjoyed learning about this little island from the perspective of the author. Very entertaining.
I love Maya Angelo's work. She's very down to earth and very wise. She has a poetic way with words. Beautiful book.
I LOVED this book! Absolutely wonderful. I just couldn't turn it off. I am hoping there will be a "part 2" some day.
I felt the author rushed through some of the most intense parts of the story. I would have enjoyed hearing more about the struggle of getting to Tibet rather than having him glaze over it.
I got 45 minutes into the book and it just wasn't picking up at all. It tried skipping ahead a little, but it was still putting me to sleep. I will not be finishing it. Basically there are a bunch of young women that want to marry this handsome bachelor, and they just go on and on about who the man danced with at the ball. It just would never end. Why this book has such a high rating on Audible I will never know. Zzzzz.
I did not find this one interesting at all. It was not what I had expected.
