I think I did....see above!
There were several memorable moments....I'm still trying to recover from hearing the
"P" word a few hundred times.
Good content, but my ears are just not accustomed to hearing the "P-word" used so casually, and so frequently. I loved what the author was saying...but I cringed every time she said it.
Didn't read the print version.
SPOILER ALERT: I really wanted to see Nick "get even."
Both did a great job...especially liked Julia's performance.
Was never particularly "moved," but was amazed at how far Amy went and how smart she was.
The story was good overall, but the ending was just, "blah." It did make me think about what the future might hold for the characters, but it was disappointing, considering all the build up.
This book was my introduction to Brene Brown, via OWN. (Thank you, Oprah!) I participated in the online journey based on this book, and boy did I get down and dirty with the whole issue of shame and ultimately vulnerability. This is a great book, and I love Brene and the way she tells stories and gets you really involved in the process of getting in touch with things I've never even considered before. PLEASE, Dr. Brown...please read your books for us...you have a wonderful, funny, heartwarming and touching way of speaking to us, and I retain so much more hearing from you first hand. And THANK YOU for the opportunity to be a part of your journey through OWN, for the first time.
The narrator "read" the book accurately, as far as I could tell, but the performance was really off. I had a hard time focusing on the information, and the stories...many words were emphasized that were disturbing to the flow. Having listened to Dr. Brown speak many times, I was disappointed that the book was read by someone who obviously was not familiar with her work.
Of all things, I really connected to the idea that we are all flawed and it's OK not to be perfect. I've heard this so many times before, but the way Dr. Brown explained it, I finally "GOT it." I'm imperfect...and I'm OK. I get the whole idea that every moment of our lives is a lesson...but I never really "got" that we don't need to revisit our past over and over again...we learn and move on...and keep making mistakes...and that's a GOOD thing.
