I don't think so, even though it was a good book. But I have to say there were a lot of divergent feelings about this book for me. At first, this girl, Trice is so confused about who she is, that it becomes kind of annoying and boring at times. Sometimes I wanted to stop listening, because it sounded like this girl had something to prove all the time.
I have to keep going because now I want to know the end of this saga. But I have to say that it wasn't as pleasant as I expected.
Yes, it's pleasant to listen to her. I would definitely buy another book in which she reads.
It will catch you off-guard.
I don't think this book is for teenagers as it says. Some of the passages are very heavy, and the author treats it very naturally, as if you were changing a shirt. Some passages between Trice and Tobias were pretty hot to me, even though she doesn't use explicit sex words, but there were some innuendos.
When I purchased this book, I didn't know it would be split in chapters. The good thing about it, is that you can listen to them in no particular order.
I realized this book is appropriate for a review of psychology in general. The other chapters are somewhat disappointing, but this one is the best so far. It is worth listening to it at least three times.
This chapter is about sensation and perception - basic concepts to be seen at the first year of psychology major. Very good listening.
This chapter was a little more specific than the first one I listened to. However, I still felt like I wanted to get deeper into the content. This is really for layman. If you are a psychologist and want to be updated, you might be disappointed, because when you listen to this book, it feels like a brush-up.
Delivery is a little robotic.
As I purchased this book, it came in multiple parts - ok, good! But... I was expecting to hear something deeper. I thought it was a little superficial. Yes, it covered some of the important theorists, but I wanted more.
But I have to say that - at least this first part I read - is great for lain men. I`m sure that people with little psychology background would appreciate this very much.
I bet most people never pay much attention to what kind of love they like to receive from their loved ones, let alone give love, once they don`t know what their loved ones like.
Life is so busy that we don`t usually pay the proper attention to our children, let alone, give them the kind of love they deserve and need to fill their love tank.
This books presents an interesting approach to love languages: words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, gifts and acts of service. I first learned about them when I read the print version of the Five love languages (for couples) and they were of great use for me.
On the Five Love Languages for Children Dr. Campbell and Dr. Chapman specify the use of those 5 languages when dealing with our kids, and God only knows how difficult it can be. They talk about love and how to handle it in a way our children can grow up to be self sufficient and have high self esteem, and not go after wrong forms of love when they grow up, you know, like good girls after crappy guys.
I highly recommend this book if you want to learn how to communicate with your child through these 5 love languages and make them feel loved.
Even if you don`t agree with everything, I`m sure you will find some tips useful, and you will even apply them with your family.
For starters, if you like happy endings, this book is not for you. However, this book is wonderfully written, captivating and for all ages.
This is a story of love, war, sacrifice and choices.
It's a simple story, really: a girl, foster parents, an accordionist, a boy, poverty, hunger, simplicity and... death.
This is the story of Liesel. Because of the circumstances, she becomes the foster daughter of Hans and Rosa, who ask her to call them mama and papa, and love her deeply. Her papa is the one to teach her to read, and this way, he giver her thw world and the start of a new "career".
Even though the author doesn’t build up your anxiety throughout the book, he involves you in such a way that you want not only to finish listening, but also keep reading more about the true story behind the war. I balled like a baby when I finished it. This is one book I will take with me, recommend, and read/listen to again many times.
This book is a great source of information to those who want/need some kind of hope on how to deal with ASD.
This book gives most of the merit to ABA, a kind of behavioral therapy for autistic children. It is amazing how this kind of therapy may be able to work, of course, it all depends on the child who needs it, and if this child might be able to follow all the drills the therapy proposes, and at last, be rescued from the bonds of autism.
However, it must be said that none of the therapy would work if it weren't for this mother's and this family's great effort towards the autistic child-Jeremy.
The delivery of the performance feels kind of robotic at times, but nothing unbearable.
I highly recommend this book not only to people who want to learn more about autism, but also to those who need new ideas and approaches on how to deal with autistic children.
I have to praise Diane M. Kennedy , Rebecca S. Banks and Temple Grandin for giving us the present that is this book.
I started reading this book because I am a teacher, and I want to help my students, as well as be prepared to what may happen in my classroom and who may be a part of it in the future.
This book brings scientific information in a way any lain man would understand, but I'd have to say that it is supposed to be read/listened to more than once in order to keep and apply all you learned with it. And it is the kind of book you have to listen and take notes as well.
I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more, as well as to those who want some guidance when it comes to dealing with 2E children.
It is a pity, however, that sometimes we don't have all the tools presented here to fight this battle at our disposal.
What to say about OUTLANDER? Well, I'm SO IN LOVE with Jamie Fraser!
I liked this book so much that I already bought the next 6 of the series!
This book has elements of Science-fiction, adventure, war, romance (oh, the romance!!!) and lots of struggle! There are some sex scenes as well, but the author let's us imagine things, making it jucier, rather than just telling it all bluntly as some authors would.
Claire is a woman from the 1940's, who unexpectedly travels in time, around 200 years, to find herself lost, and to also find things that were completely different from the ones she knew, and she had not only to learn how to cope with those things, but she also had to learn to survive.
Jamie Fraser (oh, Jamie!), a scottsman from around 1740 is the other main character you will meet and fall in love with.
I would never have known about the Outlander series, hadn't it been for a recommendation from audible.com, and I can only say: THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!
I don't understand why it is not as popular some some famous series here in Brazil.
This is the longest book I've listened too, but it did not feel like as such. Diana Gabaldon makes the experience so enjoyable, that it feels like you would like to listen to it all in ONE sitting! I even felt annoyed when others came to talk to me, interrupting me, and I couldn't stop blabbering about this marvelous adventure.
Davina Porter, the narrator, has a very pleasant voice to hear, and does a marvelous job!!! 5 well deserved stars!
Some people said this book can be found on the YA shelf, but it is NOT YA at all!
There is richness of details, but no boredom at all! Easy to visualize all the scenery and characters without being pointless long. All the elements and characters are linked.
I highly recommend this book for those who like to be immersed into another deep world and make it their own.
It is definitely in my top 10 list!
At first I read the ratings and I thought this could be an interesting book to listen to, but I was mistaken.
This is not a ghost story as I thought It would be.
It is supposed to be a mistery involving the murder of the Blackwood family, but only two sisters and their sick uncle are the ones to survive the tragedy. Mostly everyone in the village is mean to them, they have few friends and the relative they have is a golddigger who turns their life around in an awful way.
I found it to be VERY disturbing from start to finish. I also though it was a little predictable. You find out who the murderer was, but then, there is just content, but no justice, no straightening up.
It was a good story, not great.
Bernadette Dunne, however, does a wonderful job with the voices and emotions of the characters. KUDOS for her! 5 well deserved stars.
I would not read it again, but it certainly is a good book for psychology students.
